1931 I Sailed with Chinese Pirates/Aleko E  Lilius HB


This is an original copy of “I Sailed with Chinese Pirates”, by Aleko E. Lilius, 1931, Appleton and Co., photos, hardback, 245 pp. Lilius was an explorer, free-lance writer and photographer. This book is an account of the time he spent among pirates of the South China seas. The “mysterious woman pirate chief,” Lai Choi San, is believed to be the source inspiration for the character of the Dragon Lady in Milton Caniff’s comic strip, Terry and the Pirates. Condition: cover is worn and the spine has sun-fading. The interior or text is good with a bit of discoloration from an old newspaper article. Any yellow and/or white blob in the picture is a reflection of the flash and overhead lights.
