Ye Pirate Bold. Illustration by Howard Pyle, 1903. 
The inscription reads: "It is not because of his life & adventure and daring that I admire this one of my favorite heroes; nor is it because of blowing winds nor blue ocean nor balmy islands which he knew so well; nor is it because of gold he spent nor treasure he hid. He was a man who knew his own mind and what he wanted. Howard Pyle"
