9780061584480: The Illustrated Pirate Diaries: A Remarkable Eyewitness Account of Captain Morgan and the Buccaneers

No fiction on piracy can equal the true feasts of Sir Henry Morgan and his band of buccaneers when they took on the might of Spain and terrorised settlements in the Caribbean between 1666 and 1672, culminating in the notorious capture and burning of Panama City. This vivid account, as told by one of Morgan's own men, shows why ordinary sailors became buccaneers and pirates, and goes inside the terrorising exploits of the world's most infamous pirates - Pierre le Grand, Bartholomew the Portuguese, Rock the Brazilian, Lewis Scot, Francois L'Olonnais, and, of course, Sir Henry Morgan. Packed with contemporary engravings, maps, and paintings, Alexander Exquemelin's original manuscript is supported by engrossing commentary on pirate culture, environment and strategies, written by one of the worlds' leading experts on buccaneers. Alexander Exquemelin was a clerk for the French West India Company before impoverished circumstances forced him to join 'the wicked order of pirates' in 1666. He served with them until 1674, after which he settled in Holland. His book Buccaneers of America first appeared in 1678. Terry Breverton is a Senior Lecturer at UWIC Business School in Cardiff. He is a renowned expert on Sir Henry Morgan. His books include The Pirate Handbook and Admiral Sir Henry Morgan: King of the Buccaneers among others.

Book Description Collins Publishers, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 280 x 218 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Morgan hurled himself at the fuse, and saved all his comrades lives. His bravery was already the stuff of legend, and this exploit made his men even more determined to follow him anywhere. Of all the pirates to terrorize the Caribbean waters, none are as notorious as Sir Henry Morgan. His fame rests in part on an extraordinary document: the diary of buccaneer Alexander Exquemelin, who sailed under Morgan and recorded his infamous and bloody adventures. Originally published in 1678, Exquemelin s classic account of joining the wicked order of pirates, and of the most fearsome buccaneers of the era, has remained in print for more than 300 years. Now, in a special illustrated edition filled with maps, paintings, photographs, and fascinating background on pirate culture, his unforgettable diary comes to new life, bringing the authentic world of the buccaneers to a modern audience far better than any movie could.
