Synopsis
(This title belongs to the WONDERLAND IMPRINTS MASTER EDITION series. Master Editions are deluxe illustrated e-books featuring essays, annotations and additional material, celebrating the finest and most compelling works of classic fiction.)

AVAST, Sea Hawks! Here be the finest electronic edition of the greatest adventure novel of all time! Follow the *original* Pirate of the Caribbean, Long John Silver, as he and young hero Jim Hawkins engage in a battle of blood and honor over deathly pirate gold. This edition, to be gentle, simply blows all others out of the water. The Wonderland Imprints Master Edition of TREASURE ISLAND includes the tale in full, with over 100 glorious and classic illustrations by the masters themselves (Rhead, Roux, Wyeth and others). Why accept an ugly, unformatted, error-filled edition without any pictures? Enjoy this classic in all its intended majesty!

This e-book has been specifically (and painstakingly) crafted for the Kindle, featuring a quick-start option as well as an active table of contents. This edition is fully supported with extensive materials found nowhere else. Intriguing and uniquely written essays on the Golden Age of Piracy are included, detailing the secrets of: real pirate adventures in the 18th century; the romance of the swashbuckling pirate “anti-hero”; true and false pirate myths (the revelations of which are certain to surprise you); the full lyrics of “Fifteen Men on a Dead Man’s Chest”; secret histories of the arch-pirates (Blackbeard, Black Bart, Captain Kidd); an historical pirate “code of honor”; the sea dog’s glossary of piratical and nautical terminology; and more!
Other features exclusive to this edition include: “My First Book: Treasure Island,” by Robert Louis Stevenson, explaining how he wrote the book and his understanding of its legacy; “The Persons of the Tale,” a curious Stevenson vignette featuring Long John Silver; a biography and three bibliographies; a Who’s Who of all the characters; a unique chronology of the story’s adventures; and detailed notes to illuminate the text, written to be fascinating, rather than boring. Savvy?

TREASURE ISLAND: THE MASTER EDITION is the only deluxe and authoritative e-book edition, collected, annotated and edited by Kent David Kelly to offer the perfect balance of completeness, enjoyment, and ease of use. Come experience this wonderful classic, now with an overflowing treasury of secrets which you have never experienced before! From the creator of the top 100 e-book, THE COMPLETE ALICE IN WONDERLAND. (Over 100 illustrations and paintings, 15 unique essays. 86,000 words, 370 pages. 5.1 megabytes of content.)
Amazon.com Review
Climb aboard for the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. Treasure Islandhas enthralled (and caused slight seasickness) for decades. The names Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins are destined to remain pieces of folklore for as long as children want to read Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous book. With it's dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic. --Naomi Gesinger
