This is an original 1932 monochrome lithograph of a portrait of Captain Avery from The Duke. Avery also went by Henry Every or Evory, John Avery, Henry Bridgeman, Long Ben and more recently "The Arch Pirate" and "The King of Pirates." He was the most notorious pirate of his time and became one of few who retired with their loot still in possession.

"One evening four years ago, while sitting alone in my studio looking over some old sea prints- the crude woodcuts of the 'penny plain and tuppence coloured' variety- the idea came to me of illustrating a collection of old sea stories dressed up in brand new clothes. " Stanley Rogers.
