About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: The History of the Lives and Bloody Exploits...

Publisher: Hartford: Silas Andrus & Son, 1847

Publication Date: 1847


An early edition of an early work on piracy in the Caribbean, including an account of the lively Commodore David Porter, who was court-marshalled for his excesses, and of Pedro Gilbert, who was executed in Boston in 1835. Illustrated with several primitive engravings. The several early ownership signatures in pencil ("Eva Moffet," "A. P. Perkins," "Miss Annetta Chapman"), all probably by children. Hinges cracked, front flyeaf lacking, latter pages loose: one page (p. 55) was torn and stitched together by an early hand. Despite its faults, this is still an immensely attractive volume in ornatedly embossed Victorian leather binding stamped in gilt. A very nifty volume!. Bookseller Inventory # 15263
