Don't know what pure-ftp is, but if you mean the command line form of FTP, you will be unable to grab full directories as such. Probably the easiest way would be to first make any necessary directories on your local machine, use the "cd" command to move around the directory structure of the remote machine and "lcd" to change destination directories on the local machine. Then, after setting file types (binary or ascii) use the mget command to pull the files down to the local machine.
Sorry if I completely misunderstood your question.
