First published in the 1700’s and documenting the most important biographies ever to inspire the outlooks of The Golden Age of Piracy, Captain Charles Johnson’s A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE PIRATES remains the most significant work in piracy research. The 17th-century early-modern English text has been reproduced in an easier-to-read way – though still completely accurate and true to the original – with extra galleries and information as well as additional content like sea shanties and historical discoveries. Reconstructed from our first edition copy; we’ve paid attention to the detail and restructured the book the way it deserves to be. This is one of the most important pieces of non-fiction to have ever graced the Earth – and we wanted to resurrect it! Though attributed to a mysterious author known as Captain Charles Johnson, A GENERAL HISTORY carries its own cunningness with the author often attributed as a potential pseudonym of Robinson Crusoe writer Daniel Defoe.
