Pirates : fact & fiction by David Cordingly( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
Traces the history of piracy from the Spanish Main, where Drake and the Elizabethan sea dogs plundered vast quantities of treasure from Spanish galleons returning to the Old World, to the China Seas where, in the early nineteenth century, the female pirate Ching Yih Saou commanded a fleet of over 800 junks. It examines the realities of pirate life through everyday items that would have been used by the pirates themselves--weapons, navigational instruments, charts--and, by contrasting these with fictional portrayals and stereotypes, sets out to dispel some of the myths surrounding this perennially fascinating subject

Cochrane the dauntless : the life and adventures of Admiral Thomas Cochrane, 1775-1860 by David Cordingly( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 213 libraries worldwide
Thomas Cochrane was the epitome of the Romantic hero -- a man of action, whose bold and impulsive nature meant that he was often his own worst enemy. This impetuousness lay behind his early success, but also caused him to upset admirals and politicians and culminated in the 1814 Stock Exchange scandal, which saw him blackcalled by the British Establishment
Nicholas Pocock, 1740-1821 by David Cordingly( Book )
8 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 libraries worldwide
Pocock was one of the great figures of English marine painting in the eighteenth century. His work is of outstanding interest to maritime historians because, in addition to his skill as a painter, he had spent many years as a sea captain. He used his early experience to great effect and earned the confidence of distinguished naval patrons. Pocock is unusual in that so much supporting material survives. Working drawings, sketchbooks and letters abound, allowing the author to draw an exceptionally rounded picture of a man who meticulously recorded British maritime history for nearly forty years. -- Jacket
