|Cover. Ripping bodice and all|
This edition of Cup of Gold was published in 1949 by The Popular Library. It was fairly common for a serious novel to have a truly fantastic cover and misleading blurbs. This one features the pirate Henry Morgan leering over a swooning (?) damsel. He appears to be pulling a Timberlake and causing a wardrobe malfunction.
I've included some more pictures - including the signature of a previous owner and what appears to be his system of cataloging his books.
