Captain Jack Sparrow would shiver his timbers when faced with Sir Henry Morgan and his savage band of buccaneers. Sacking Porto Bellow, burning Panama, and even taking on the Spanish armada, Morgan stopped at nothing to acquire his precious lucre in the years 1666 to 1672. This vivid account, as told by one of Morgan's own men and illustrated with engravings from the period, puts the lie to the idea of the "romantic swashbuckler." This is a brutal, unforgiving, and essential slice of seafaring history. Thought to be of Dutch origin, JOHN ESQUEMELING (1645-1707) was a merchant clerk for the French West India Company before impoverished circumstances forced him to join "the wicked order of pirates" in 1666.

Piraten-Geschichten gibt es viele. Die meisten sind erfunden und von Landratten, die nie eine Schiffsplanke betreten haben, niedergeschrieben. | Wäre es nicht faszinierend, einen echten Piraten zu begleiten, auf seinen Kaperzügen in der Karibik? Unterwegs mit berüchtigten Piraten wie Roche Braziliano und Francois l`Ollonais, mit berühmten Freibeutern wie Henry Morgan? | Im Jahre 1669 beginnt Alexandre Olivier Exquemelin seine Karriere als Pirat. | 1666 kommt er als Angestellter der französischen Westindien-Kompagnie nach Tortuga (Île de la Tortue), einer kleinen Karibikinsel vor der Nordküste Haitis. Dort führt er drei Jahre lang ein ›ordentliches Leben‹, soweit dies auf einer berüchtigten Pirateninsel möglich war. Im Jahr 1669 heuert er schließlich als Freibeuter auf einem Piratenschiff an. In der Folge erlebt er zahllose Kaperfahrten und Räubereien aus nächster Nähe mit. Noch nach einem Freibeuterangriff auf die Stadt Cartagena im Jahr 1697 wird sein Name auf der Musterrolle gelistet. | Dazwischen aber, an ruhigen Tagen, schafft er sein bleibendes Werk: Das vorliegende Buch »The Pirates of Panama or The Buccanneers of America« erschien 1678 erstmals unter dem Titel »De Americaensche Zee-Rovers« in Amsterdam und wurde schnell zum Bestseller, weil es Normalsterblichen das erste Mal einen Einblick in die Welt der Piraten gab. | Das erste und gleichzeitig prägendste Piraten-Buch aller Zeiten zeichnet sich durch eine klare, schnörkellose Sprache, einen enormen Faktenreichtum und präzise Detailbeschreibung aus. Es hat bis heute das Bild des Piraten im allgemeinen Bewusstsein, Literatur, später Film und Populärkultur am nachhaltigsten beeinflusst. Die hier vorliegende Ausgabe geht auf die 1684 erschienene erste englische Auflage zurück, wurde nur leicht überarbeitet und ist dennoch außerordentlich gut lesbar. | Autor: Alexandre O. Exquemelin, manchmal auch John Esquemeling oder Oexmelin genannt, war ein Seefahrer, Pirat und Autor. 1666 kam er als Angestellter der französischen Westindien-Kompagnie nach Tortuga (Île de la Tortue), einer kleinen Karibikinsel vor der Nordküste Haitis. Dort heuerte er 1669 als Freibeuter an und erlebte zahllose Kaperfahrten unter verschiedenen Piratenkapitänen mit. Noch nach einem Freibeuterangriff auf die Stadt Cartagena im Jahr 1697 wurde sein Name auf der Musterrolle gelistet. Er schrieb den Klassiker aller Piratenbücher. | Herausgeber: Armin Fischer ist Autor in München. Er beschäftigt er sich schwerpunktmäßig mit Medizin-, und Wissenschaftsthemen. Aus einem Studium der Geschichte der Naturwissenschaften ist ein Faible für historische und nautische Themen geblieben. | Zweisprachige Ausgabe: Deutsch-englische Edition auf Basis eines wenig veränderten englischen Originalmanuskripts. Alle Erläuterungen und Begleitartikel deutsch. Mit einem Begleitwort (deutsch) von James Hamilton-Paterson.

During the seventeenth century, sea raiders known as buccaneers controlled the Caribbean. Buccaneers were not pirates but privateers, licensed to attack the Spanish by the governments of England, France, and Holland. Jon Latimer charts the exploits of these men who followed few rules as they forged new empires. From the crash of gunfire to the billowing sail on the horizon, Latimer brilliantly evokes the dramatic age of the buccaneers.

The swashbuckling biography of the naval officer known as the Sword of England. Welshman Henry Morgan has come to be portrayed as a black-hearted, fierce pirate. This error in terms and in the assessment of Morgan�s character led to the filing of the first libel lawsuit, brought in protest to a book published in 1684 claiming he had been an indentured servant, was a pirate, and was responsible for atrocities. In fact, Morgan was commissioned to aid the British navy in fighting enemies of the throne and was a superb military tactician who led a dozen victorious campaigns against massive odds.

The English Literatures of America redefines colonial American literatures, sweeping from Newfoundland and Nova Scotia to the West Indies and Guiana. The book begins with the first colonization of the Americas and stretches beyond the Revolution to the early national period. Many texts are collected here for the first time; others are recognized masterpieces of the canon--both British and American--that can now be read in their Atlantic context. By emphasizing the culture of empire and by representing a transatlantic dialogue, The English Literatures of America allows a new way to understand colonial literature both in the United States and abroad.

In 1674, it is three years since Henry Morgan’s pirates sacked Panama. England is now at peace with Spain, and soon France, Holland, and Spain will briefly be at peace among themselves. But soon buccaneers and their French counterparts, the filibusters, will seize the opportunity of material gain presented by the far-flung and failing Spanish Empire. And Spain will produce its own notorious pirates, whose depredations against the English and French will become legend. These men of opportunistic calculation and desperate courage live in a wilder, larger, and richer time and place than any other frontier in modern history—the Spanish Main. Unflinchingly, unhesitatingly, unabashedly, they will take to the peaceful seas for riches by force of arms. The world will witness piracy on a grand scale. While Benerson Little’s previous work showed brilliantly how pirates actually plied their trade, The Buccaneer’s Realm focuses on their cultural and physical environments. It describes not merely their deeds but their world—the New World of the Spanish Main and its many peoples, freedoms, dangers, and exploits that are the foundation of the Americas. A detailed and lively description of pirate life, it will especially appeal to readers with an interest in maritime, naval, military, and colonial history, as well as sociologists, anthropologists, and armchair adventurers.
