William Dampier was a sea captain, scientific observer, plantation manager―and a pirate. This account of his journey around the world provides an early glimpse into the life of the buccaneer in the late 17th century.

1500 Books retains the original punctuation, abbreviations, and language Dampier used, but used modern spellings and capitalization, as well as large print, to make the book far more readable than Dover Publication's 1968 reprint entitled Memoirs of a Buccaneer. In spite of having appeared in print more than three centuries ago, A New Voyage Round the World remains as captivating and compelling a travelogue as it did when it first appeared in print. Opening the pages takes the reader back in time to an exotic world few people of Dampier's time knew of, providing us with a fresh look at what has become commonplace. --Pirates and Privateers
