About the Author:

Daniel Defoe (1660-1731), novelist, pamphleteer, journalist, and political spy, is best known for his novels Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders.

From Library Journal:

Despite varying titles, these are essentially the same book. Published in 1724, Defoe's chronicle of the scourges of the sea was a smashing success, finding a wide audience eager for tales of those cutthroat sailors who flew the skull and crossbones. The Dover edition is more scholarly, including several essays on Defoe, indexes (ships, names, and places), photos, and a postscript. If you don't need any of that, save a couple of bucks and go with the Carroll & Graf edition.
