Overview

JAMES HIND- the Master Thief of England- the fearless Captain of the Highway; was born at Chipping Norton in 1618.' (Excerpt from Chapter 1) This list of "scoundrels" includes stories of Captain Hind; Moll Cutpurse and Jonathan Wild; Ralph Briscoe; Gilderoy and Sixteen-String Jack; George Barrington; The Switcher and Gentleman Harry; Deacon Brodie and Charles Peace; Monsieur L'Abbe, Sheppard and Cartouche; Of all the heroes who have waged a private and undeclared war upon their neighbours, Louis-Dominique Cartouche was the most generously endowed. It was but his resolute contempt for politics, his unswerving love of plunder for its own sake, that prevented him from seizing a throne or questing after the empire of the world. Charles Whibley (1860-1930).
