The Pilot: A Tale of the Sea [Slipcase]

Cooper, James Fenimore; Introduction by T. Winterich; Woodcuts by Robert M. Quackenbush

“The Pilot: A Tale of the Sea’ is a historical novel by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in January 1824 (the earliest edition is actually dated 1823). [A] naval pilot during the American Revolution... appears as always brooding upon a dark past and a darker fate. Yet he is not so morbid but that he can occasionally rouse himself to terrific activities in his raids along the English coast.” [Pub. Info] "Cooper's poetic power is reserved for the sea, which is no backdrop but a separate world with forces and laws of its own. The individuation of the ships, particularly the personification of the Ariel, contributes to the magic, but the exhilaration of the book comes from the triumph of human skill and intelligence over the uncertainties and downright hostilities of a world of waves, winds, and hidden reefs. The land offers neither a comparable challenge nor so heady a victory." [Introduction]
