Detailed Information for Seller's item number: 134
Great Pirates: Little Blue Book No. 558
Author: Finger, Charles
Publisher: Girard Kansas: Haldeman-Julius Co., 1924

Paperbound, 12mo., soft blue paper wraps. 64pp. including several pages listing other LBB titles. Stories of some of the more notorious pirates including Philip Roach, John Gow, Henry Morgan, Captain Kidd, and others, as well as a section on women pirates. Finger makes the nice observation that "Pirates, generally speaking, did for themselves and on their own personal accounts and sometimes were hanged for doing those things for which they would have been praised and knighted had they done them in the name of patriotism." Discussing Francis Drake, he notes, "But Drake was also a pirate of the first water, burning, slaying, laying to waste as cheerfully as did Avery, or Lowther, or Blackbeard Teach." Among many exciting stories that of Mary Read, woman pirate, is certainly wilder than any fiction-writer's plot. Finger writes here with his usual open-minded perspective on history. Lyrics to a couple of well-known pirate songs are quoted here, too. Slight fading at edges of wraps, internally bright. LBB Paperbound 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
