LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Barnsley, South Yorkshire United Kingdom: Seaforth, 2010. 194 pages. This gripping tale of adventure in the South Seas describes the barbarous world of buccaneering, where authority was predicted on firepower and only a fine line seperated the legality of privateering from the criminality of the pirate. In 1719, Captain George Shelvocke, a poverty-stricken ex-naval officer, appealed for help to an old shipmate, Edward Hughes, who was then part of a consortium fitting-out two privateering vessels to prey on the Spanish in the Pacific. He offered Shelvocke the captaincy of the larger ship but then demoted him to a smaller vessel, and Shelvocke, bitter and revengeful, immediately set off on his own for South America with a semi-mutinous crew, and his much-hated Captain of Marines, William Betagh. . First Edition. Hard Cover. New/New.
