Description


A beautiful edition with the formatting and all 120 images from the original edition published in 1915.

The cover is an N. C. Wyeth painting taken from a later publication. Don't be fooled by other versions that have no illustrations or contain very small print. A thrilling adventure novel of pirates, sailing ships, treasure maps, and tropical islands. Published in 1883, its characters have become part of our culture. A young boy, Jim Hawkins, discovers a treasure map on a dying pirate at the "Admiral Benbow" inn in England and takes off on a quest to find the prize. The ship he is on is taken over by the one-legged Long John Silver and his gang of cutthroats who attempt to steal the treasure.
