New York Random House Trade Paperbacks 1995 081297722X / 9780812977226 Later Printing (8th) Soft Cover Near Fine Large Octavo 
For this rousing, revisionist history, the former head of exhibitions at England's National Maritime Museum has combed original documents and records to produce a most authoritative and definitive account of piracy's Golden Age. As he explodes many accepted myths (i.e., walking the plank is pure fiction), Cordingly replaces them with a truth that is more complex and often bloodier. 296pp.
