Osprey New Vanguard 70 : The Pirate Ship 1660-1730

The 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 book 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 an account of these vessels, detailing their origins, development and tactical engagement. Packed with contemporary illustrations and detailed colour artwork, the ships of this 'golden age' are brought vividly to life. Text by Angus Konstam with illustrations by Tony Bryan.
