            Pirateology | The Pirate Hunter's Companion

Steer, Dugald [Gilbert and Helen Ward, Anne Yvonne, Ian Andrew]

(Book #ID 102971)

Published by Templar Publishing Pippbrook Mill, London Road, Dorking First Edition 2006. 2006.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original colour illustrated paper covered boards with compass and jewel inserts. 4to. 12½'' x 10¼''. Full printer's code 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2. On March 14 2006 Pirateology was allegedly found in an old sea chest by divers searching for wrecks off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. The sea chest was among the rotted planks and barnacle-encrusted cannons of an old wreck. Experts date the ship as being similar to those used in the region by both privateers and pirates in the early 18th century and judging by its condition, it was engaged in a sea battle when it sank. The chest had been wrapped in canvas and tarred and so had survived intact. When opened it was found to contain a journal, a letter from Samuel Shute, then the governor of Massachusetts, to a Captain Lubber, author of the journal, and dated April 13, 1723, a small bag of gold dust, a black pirate flag, a Spanish pilot's book, and a piece of what seems to be a treasure map from which a corner had been torn. It also contained an engraving of a woman pirate from the Bostonian Magazine of 1721 entitled Arabella Drummond, Terror of the Seas. While it mostly conforms to accepted ideas about historical pirates, there are a few elements, such as the black spot, which were previously unknown except in works of fiction such as Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Research has revealed no other traces of William Lubber, his ship The Sea Cat, or his nemesis, Arabella Drummond. In Fine condition, unused new book. Member of the P.B.F.A.
