Captain Cap, Volume 4

September 23rd, 2013 · No Comments


The fourth and final volume of Captain Cap is now available from Black Scat Books.  In these sixteen stories, Alphonse Allais’s hard-drinking polymath proposes crocodile bridges, volatile ink, the kangacycle, smell-buoys, and much more.  Captain Cap, first published in 1902, and continually popular in France, has previously been translated into Czech, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese, but never before into English.  Now, with this last volume, every last drop is available to anglophones.

This edition is translated, illustrated, introduced and annotated by Doug Skinner.  It has been published by Black Scat in an edition of 125 copies.  Set sail with the Captain!
