    Dave Stevens Time Machine 4: Sail With Pirates Paperback Cover Painting Original Art (Byron Preiss/Bantam Books, 1984). "It is the year 1684. You have traveled back to the age of pirates. You are standing face-to-face with a pirate captain. He offers you a choice: join his crew or die." Dave Stevens' colorful cover illustration, done in gouache/opaque watercolor features gorgeous color work from the same period as Dave's Rocketeer work. Stevens finished, published art from the 1980s peak period rarely comes on the market. This blood-chilling confrontation graced the cover of Jim Gasperi's role-playing adventure paperback. This painting has an image area of 5.5" x 11", and the art is in Excellent condition. Also included in this lot are a publisher approval prelim by Dave, and a copy of the paperback, autographed by the late Dave Stevens.
