The famous novel by Robert Lewis Stevenson, accompanied by a detailed historical and everyday commentary on maritime affairs in 18th-century England and the “golden age” of piracy.

In England, near Bristol, in the Admiral Benbow tavern, in the room of the old captain, in a sailor’s chest, in a bag of oilcloth, what is known as the beginnings of adventure that every boy knows begins is safely hidden. We will go to England of the 18th century with this book in order to immediately go to sea and on a long voyage to Treasure Island to comprehend all the sea wisdom.
