More about this image:
Pirate publishers in the U.S. had to create their own illustrations. The engraver's art was highly developed, and the French engravings were quickly copied. Note the absence of the engraver's name, Riou, on this illustration compared with the French edition. The French editions used plates made from woodcuts, this illustration may actually be be a steel engraving.
