Book Jacket for Treasure Island

While going through the possessions of a deceased guest who owed them money, the mistress of an inn and her son, young Jim Hawkins, find a treasure map that leads to a pirate’s fortune.  Jim becomes part of a voyage to find the rich booty.  Jim doesn’t suspect that roguish shipmate, and supposed friend, Long John Silver, is actually a pirate intent on grabbing the treasure. A swashbuckling tale of piracy and adventure on the high seas!

Chapters 7 & 8, in which we learn of the purchase and outfitting of the good ship Hispaniola, Jim finds his way to Bristol for embarkation, and we first meet Long John Silver.
