= The second Dutch edition (the original first, Dutch edition of 1678 hardly to be found) of this famous and popular buccaneer-book, "the prototype of an entire literature of books of adventures" (Church). "Perhaps no book in any language was ever the parent of so many imitations, and the source of so many fictions as this, the original of the buccaneers of America." (Sabin 23468). This second edition, much altered and enlarged and with new plates, is also extremely scarce. Exquemelin was a French physician, practising in Amsterdam. About 1670, he withdrew from his association with the French West India Company to participate in freebooting. He became a buccaneer under the command of the notorious Sir Henry Morgan.
