  • The Illustrated Pirate Diaries: A Remarkable Eyewitness Account of Captain Morgan and the Buccaneers

    Sert Kapak
    No fiction on piracy can equal the true feasts of Sir Henry Morgan and his band of buccaneers when they took on the might of Spain and terrorised settlements in the Caribbean between 1666 and 1672, culminating in the notorious capture and burning of Panama City. This vivid account, as told by one of Morgan's own men, shows why ordinary sailors became buccaneers and pirates, and goes inside the terrorising exploits of the world's most infamous pirates - Pierre le Grand, Bartholomew the Portuguese, Rock the Brazilian, Lewis Scot, Francois L'Olonnais, and, of course, Sir Henry Morgan. Packed with contemporary engravings, maps, and paintings, Alexander Exquemelin's original manuscript is supported by engrossing commentary on pirate culture, environment and strategies, written by one of the worlds' leading experts on buccaneers. Alexander Exquemelin was a clerk for the French West India Company before impoverished circumstances forced him to join 'the wicked order of pirates' in 1666. He served with them until 1674, after which he settled in Holland. His book Buccaneers of America first appeared in 1678. Terry Breverton is a Senior Lecturer at UWIC Business School in Cardiff. He is a renowned expert on Sir Henry Morgan. His books include The Pirate Handbook and Admiral Sir Henry Morgan: King of the Buccaneers among others.

  • The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor

    Karton Kapak
    Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, started his literary career with the publication of The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor.. 'On February 22 we were told that we would be returning to Columbia.' In 1955 eight crew members of Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were swept overboard. Velasco alone survived, drifting on a raft for ten days without food or water. Marquez retells the survivor's amazing tale of endurance, from his loneliness and thirst to his determination to survive. The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor was Marquez's first major work, published in a Colombian newspaper, El Espectador, in 1955 and then in book from in 1970. 'The Story of Velasco on his raft, his battle with sharks over a succulent fish, his hallucinations, his capture of a seagull which he was unable to eat, his subsequent droll rescue, has all the grip of archetypal myth. Reads like an epic' -Independent ' A master storyteller' -Daily Mail 'Garcia Marquez is a retailer of wonders' -Sunday Times

  • Scenes of Clerical Life

    Scenes of Clerical Life

    Karton Kapak
    This book comes with an introduction by Graham Handley. Who was the Countess and why does she selfishly ingratiate herself into the poor household of Reverend Amos Barton, curate of Shepperton? The effect on his wife and family, and the responses of his congregation are shown in this, the first of George Eliot's works of fiction, and one of three short stories, which comprise Scenes of Clerical Life . The Reverend Maynard Gilfil, humble chaplain at Cheverel Manor, was quietly in love with Caterina, a young beauty of Italian extraction living at the manor. But she loved the heir to the estate, Captain Wybrow. Why does she prowl round the grounds at night with a dagger in her pocket? All is revealed in Mr Gilfil's Love Story, the second of the Scenes. Why is the town of Milby so upset by the prospect of lectures from a young evangelical clergyman, Edgar Tryan? What is the connection with the influential lawyer, Robert Dempster? Beneath the respectable surface Dempster is a violent drunk who abuses his wife Janet, already herself struggling with alcohol. Janet turns to Edgar Tryan for help. The third Scene is Janet's Repentance, a story with remarkably contemporary resonances and proof of George Eliot's ability to enlighten and interest modern readers. These stories were the first of George Eliot's published work, appearing in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine in 1857. This edition is published in conjunction with The George Eliot Fellowship to celebrate the 150th anniversary of this event.
