Long John Silver, immortal of Robert Louis Stevenson. Long John Silver's Pirate Crew Coin Collection, all coins are included in the original coin holder.
He' probably the most notorious pirate that ever was. Long-John Silver is one of the protagonists of Buch-Schatzinsel. This is an adventurous story about an islet in the West Indies, known as Skeleton Iceland, where the legendary fortune of a great pirate commander is hidden.
There is no pirate who has inspire more myths and legends than Long John Silver. The name Long John Silver is known even to those who have never visited Treasure Island. Amazingly, I get at least 2 or 3 guys every months who ask me if Silver is a true one. Long-John Silver was born from Stevenson's true boyfriend William Henley.
It' about as genuine as Silver. A marvelous biographic drawing by Silver. Except she was helping him run the Spy-Glass Inn, Silver's Taverne in Bristol. After the Hispaniola, Silver says she should go to a new place somewhere in the Caribbean where he would see her again after the search for them.
The silver was usually referred to by the other pirates/nuts as John or Barbecue. All the good people in the tale (Captain Smollett, Doctor Livsey, Jim Hawkins, etc.) named him Silver. He enrolled as the Hispaniola's chef and then recruited most of his former colleagues for the remainder of the team.
Good squire John Trelawney trusts Silver so much that he will accept any man Silver puts forward, even though Jim Hawkins had told Trelawney and Livsey to be looking for a one-legged man. History takes some period after 1722 and more likely sometime in the later 1730' or early 1740'.
We' re told from history that Long John was Captain Flint's quarter master. was a pirate that everyone but Long John Silver dreaded. History tells us that Flint is dying in Savannah, Georgia, but no precise year is given. There' s a proposal that Flint was murdered by Silver, but it is never made clear.
It is not exactly clear when Silver died, but it was in combat and he died from an incendiary gunshot that not only removed his own legs but also blinds another pirate known in history as "Blind Pew". There was some period between taking the treasury that Captain Flint was burying and the death of Captain Flint that Silver died.
Also we know that Long John loves Jim Hawkins and is saving the boy's lives several times. Hawkins wants the kid to join him and the Brethren and admire Hawkins for his wealth of resources and his almost ruthless courage. Another interesting thing is that the only thing Silver fears is hang.
Throughout the many installments of Triasure Island, silver tends to be a gentler villain who always seems to do good in the end. He can sneak away with part of the sweetheart at the end of the treasure island. In the end, however, he saved Hawkins and ambushed the other mutineers into a bloodied trap to rescue his own people.
A sympathetic man, well trained to a certain extent (he could not steer a boat alone), he knew the danger of a heavy beverage, but he was a highly lethal pirate. Had I mentioned he had a pirate name, Capt. Flint? At Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, Courses of the Black Pearl, nennt die Black Pearl den Affen Captain Jack, nach dem ehemaligen Kapitän Jack Sparrow.
