The Definitive Who's Who from the Golden Age of Piracy.
They say "dead men tell no tales." That's certainly true, but it doesn't mean that tales can not be told about those men.
In 1923 Philip Gosse found himself rummaging through his local library looking for information about pirates and buccaneers. To his amazement, there was little to be found about, as he puts it, "...this group of picturesque, if often unseemly, persons."
Certainly there was information about the "stars" of that era like William Kidd, Edward Teach (Blackbeard), and John Avery. There was even a bit about buccaneers like Sir Henry Morgan. But there was little or nothing about the hundreds of lesser-known, but equally important, individuals who populated that era.
He resolved to cure that problem, and the result was this book.
Here you will find listings for over 700 men and women who took part in the great Golden Age of Piracy. There are no mythical characters. Every person listed actually lived and, near as can be determined, did the things--good and bad--that are imputed to them.
