Illustrated With Twenty Splendid Engravings From Drawings by Clarkson Stanfield, Esq. R.A. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1836. First edition. Octavo (9 5/16 x 6 inches; 236 x 151 mm.). viii, 315, [1, blank] pp. Additional steel-engraved title page, twenty steel-engraved plates with tissue guards, including frontispiece.

Still a spectacular copy in the original decorative cloth. Two nautical novels in one. The Pirate And The Three Cutters was the ninth of Captain Marryat's books. It is comprised of two stories. The Three Cutters is quite interesting, from a social point of view, providing an intimate glimpse of life aboard a yachtsman's cruising yacht, entertaining male and female guests, young and old. In attempting to help catch a smuggler, the yachtsman himself is captured. The Pirate is the longer of the two stories, and tells of two brothers who are separated during infancy. One grows up to be a pirate and the other becomes a naval officer. An engaging and often amusing read.Captain Frederick Marryat (1792-1848) was an English Royal Navy officer, novelist, and a contemporary and acquaintance of Charles Dickens, noted today as an early pioneer of the sea story. He employed a lucid and direct narrative style, incorporating humor and incidents drawn from his varied experience at sea. "Marryat's greatness is undeniable" (Joseph Conrad). "Marryat has the power to set us in the midst of ships and men and sea and sky all vivid, credible, authentic" (Virginia Woolf).Clarkson Frederick Stanfield (1793-1867) was a prominent English marine painter who later served as the curator of the Naval Gallery at Greenwich Hospital.
