Famous Pirates and Buccaneers Map – 1938 Poster
Very rare today this 1938 pictorial map by Darby Harbold combines a wealth of pirate lore with a certain Art-Deco flair that reflects the time when it was created. Most of the most of noted pirates – Blackbeard, Anne Bonney, Bartholomew Roberts, Henry Morgan etc. – are mentioned here along with many less well known (today at least) miscreants of the sea such as Captain Mission, John Bowen, Dixey Bull and Samuel Burgess. The map is reproduced here at it original size of approximately 21 inches high by 29 inches wide and is formatted onto a large decorative background which allows the image to be framed without the need of being matted – although it would look wonderful matted too. Note: Several buried treasures are shown on this map and no guarantee of any short is made or implied that they may still lie buried as depicted.
