    One thought on “The Pirates Own Book Authentic Narratives of the Most Celebrated Sea Robbers”

    1. A compilation of contemporaneous stories about pirates, which was compiled in the early 1800s. It is a very, and I want to stress very, general overview on pirate lives. It sounded to me like a good compilation of stories when I received the book however; it seemed to be information obtained for a child's use. This is not a scholarly type of source in the least and should not be read as such. It is however, a good general overview of the basic biography of major/famous pirates.

    2. First hand accounts, diary entries and court documents make up these tales of real pirates. Originally published in the 1800's, it's a fascinating look at life on the high seas. Be forewarned: the writing is of the time so the grammar, spelling and syntax take some getting used to.

    3. This is my 1st pirate book I read. Very interesting and the documented accounts were very revealing on how violent they were. I shall read another one in future.

    4. This collection of biographical tales dates originally to the first half of the nineteenth century. They cover a broad spectrum from Arabian plunderers to Barbary corsairs to the more familiar Atlantic & Caribbean buccaneers. The writing is quite dense, reading more like an encyclopedic entry than true bio. And it's clear that most of the info is mythic or anecdotal in nature, as opposed to referenced from primary sources. While it's easy to get bogged down in long lists of booty taken or dr [...]

    5. A rather long (469 pages) and slow to read book about various pirates through history. It took me nearly three months to finish. I found it very hard to read, and very uninteresting, mostly. But, some parts WERE interesting. I spent a lot of time looking at maps of the Lynn Massachusetts area to see where the action of the chapter about the Lynn pirates took place.

    6. Two centuries old this book breathlessly tells the tales of contemporary and then recent pirates from New England to the Far East. Information is culled from newspapers, first hand accounts, legends and military reports. A wonderful read, it could be much improved by some modern layout techniques, such as whitespace and a little font variation.

    7. Although a bit dry in places, this was a very enlightening book to understand the origins and real acts of pirates. It puts the Somali pirates of today into a perspective that will not win them any friends.

    8. After Treasure Island, I would say that this is the book that started it all for me. My parents returned from New Orleans with this book for me and I devoured it, and after that, I read nearly every book I could get my hands on that was about pirates. Wuv, twue wives.

    9. part history, part lore, all from the mouths and pens of pirates. i've had this book perhaps longer than any other book on my shelf. my real bookshelf, that is.

    10. Very interesting book of pirates and their adventures. Fascinating stories of personalities usually excluded in history class. A bit long.

    11. Many of the stories are original and are not the usual stories of famous pirates retold from Johnson and DeFoe.

    12. A good research book about pirates which includes their own letters. The narrations bring the history of pirstes to life.
