Book Description Glyndwr Publishing, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New title. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. This is the fourth book written by Terry Breverton in a series on pirates and piracy. Since piracy has existed ever since men first set sail on the high seas, this practical, dictionary-styled handbook is teeming with every kind of piratical and nautical fact associated with this period in history. Some of the many interesting facts included describe the types of sailing vessels used by pirates, the seas they sailed on, which flags were flown, what type of food they ate, which jokes they told and where the pirate havens were. There are even descriptions of some of the most famous pirates themselves, such as Black Bart Roberts and Edward Teach, more famously known as Blackbeard. The origins of familiar expressions used in everyday language today are also explained in clear detail. Who would have thought that pirates were the source of such sayings as the bitter end , no great shakes , armed to the teeth and take down a peg or two ? Or take the wind out of his sails , hoisted with his own petard , clean bill of health or chock-a-block , which is a good way to describe this book. The author s detailed research shows very clearly. The writing is friendly and makes this a good handbook to dip in and out of, whether for the serious student or anyone with an interest in pirates. The compilation of information ensures that there is no better starting point for those wishing to research this subject for their own writing and will delight others who read purely for pleasure.
