Composed of material gathered from a variety of historical sources dating back to the mid-1700s, this extended account of piracy in ancient and modern times, and in all parts of the world, saw its first edition published in Boston in 1837. At least eight other editions of the work followed, and there was a huge demand for these tales of looted shipping and bloody adventure. Restored to print in 1924 by the Marine Research Society of Salem, Massachusetts, this work is a fascinating account of the careers and exploits of pirates.
