This is an auction for TREASURE ISLAND by Robert Louis Stevenson.

This is the complete, unabridged text.

From Wikipedia:

"Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "pirates and buried gold". First published as a book on 23rd May 1883, it was originally serialized between 1881–82. It is an adventure tale known for its atmosphere, character and action, and also a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality—as seen in Long John Silver—unusual for children's literature then and now. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perception of pirates is vast, including treasure maps with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders... The novel opens in the seaside village of Black Hill Cove in south-west England in the mid-18th century. The narrator, James "Jim" Hawkins, is the young son of the owners of the Admiral Benbow Inn. A drunken seaman named Billy Bones becomes a long-term lodger at the inn, only paying for about the first week of his stay. Jim realizes that Bones is in hiding, and that he dreads meeting an unidentified seafaring man with one leg. Bones is visited by a mysterious sailor named Black Dog. Their meeting turns violent, Black Dog flees and Bones suffers a stroke. While Jim cares for him, Bones confesses that he was once the mate of the notorious pirate, Captain Flint, and that his old crewmates want Bones' sea chest..."
