Both Robert Louis Stevenson and J.M. Barrie were inspired by this 1724 classic--the first book to introduce the world of Captain Kidd, Mary Read and 19 other pirates to the reading public. David Cordingly, author of Under the Black Flag, provides an introduction to this edition, which was taken from the third edition, published in 1925. Includes a glossary and an abstract of the 1720 civil and statute law relating to piracy. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
