LIMITED FIRST EDITION THUS. Quarto (24 x 18cm), pp.viii; 340. Publisher's deluxe full vellum binding decorated in gilt to spine and upper, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, decorative endpapers. Illustrated with twelve mounted colour plates with captioned tissue guards, plus a map. Number 178 of 250 copies issued thus.

Trace of a previous ownership inscription to front pastedown, internally clean with just some sporadic light spotting. Gilt top edge a little dulled.

A fantastic presentation of Stevenson's much loved piratical tale.
