This is a wonderful book for children ages 6 and up. It will also be enjoyed by adults who are interested in unique items. The size of the book is full quarto 12" tall and 10 1/2" wide. It is something of a 3d book because virtually every page has a packet or envelope to be opened. There are terrific illustrations and an actual compass as part of the front cover. It is decorated with faux rubies (not real) and it is a luscious volume. The book is in Fine condition and all of the internals are present. The publisher writes: "Piratetology was allegedly found in an old sea chest by divers searching for wrecks on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland in 2006.While it mostly conforms to accepted ideas about historical pirates, there are a few elements, such as the "Black Spot" which were previously unknown except in works of fiction such as Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Research has revealed no other traces of William Lubber, his ship the "Sea Cat" or his nemesis, Arabella Drummond" I would take all that with a grain of salt but who knows! Anyway it is a lovely and really entertaining book. It is also extremely colorful. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
