Pirate Ship 1660-1730 ( Series - New Vanguard, 70 )
deeds and personalities of famous pirates have received significant
attention in recent years: however, no detailed depiction of their
vessels has ever been produced. This title redresses the imbalance,
conducting a detailed exploration of the wide variety of pirate vessels
that sailed the high seas during the 'golden age' of piracy (1690-
1730), from gun-bristling warships to smaller craft such as sloops,
brigantines and early schooners. It incorporates the latest
archaeological evidence to produce a fascinating account of these
vessels, detailing their origins, development and tactical engagement.
Packed with contemporary illustrations and superbly detailed colour
artwork, the ships of the 'golden age' are brought vividly to life.
