Notes: "The publisher to the reader," 3 p.ℓ., is followed by dedicatory verses "To the honourable Sir Henry Morgan," signed "A.B.," 1 p.ℓ. The publisher says that "though he knew both the Dutch original and Spanish translation contained most excellent remarks ... he thought not fit to prosecute his design of having them rendred into the English tongue, before that he had had them stand the test of such who had resided many years in those parts, and, as it were, been present at, and eye-witnesses of those pyratical expeditions, and so were fully acquainted with the interests and affairs of our buccaniers; these gentlemen were pleased to correct, purge and reform it of many abuses and mistakes, wherewith this account was sullied by self-interested [sic] pens ...

"A small volume of great rarity."--Sabin.
Description: 12 preliminary leaves, 192 pages 17 cm
Responsibility: Made English from the Dutch copy: written by J. Esquemeling, one of the bucaniers, very much corrected, from the errours of the original, by the relations of some English gentlemen, that then resided in those parts ...
