Piraten-Geschichten gibt es viele. Die meisten sind erfunden und von Landratten, die nie eine Schiffsplanke betreten haben, niedergeschrieben. | Wäre es nicht faszinierend, einen echten Piraten zu begleiten, auf seinen Kaperzügen in der Karibik? Unterwegs mit berüchtigten Piraten wie Roche Braziliano und Francois l`Ollonais, mit berühmten Freibeutern wie Henry Morgan? | Im Jahre 1669 beginnt Alexandre Olivier Exquemelin seine Karriere als Pirat. | 1666 kommt er als Angestellter der französischen Westindien-Kompagnie nach Tortuga (Île de la Tortue), einer kleinen Karibikinsel vor der Nordküste Haitis. Dort führt er drei Jahre lang ein ›ordentliches Leben‹, soweit dies auf einer berüchtigten Pirateninsel möglich war. Im Jahr 1669 heuert er schließlich als Freibeuter auf einem Piratenschiff an. In der Folge erlebt er zahllose Kaperfahrten und Räubereien aus nächster Nähe mit. Noch nach einem Freibeuterangriff auf die Stadt Cartagena im Jahr 1697 wird sein Name auf der Musterrolle gelistet. | Dazwischen aber, an ruhigen Tagen, schafft er sein bleibendes Werk: Das vorliegende Buch »The Pirates of Panama or The Buccanneers of America« erschien 1678 erstmals unter dem Titel »De Americaensche Zee-Rovers« in Amsterdam und wurde schnell zum Bestseller, weil es Normalsterblichen das erste Mal einen Einblick in die Welt der Piraten gab. | Das erste und gleichzeitig prägendste Piraten-Buch aller Zeiten zeichnet sich durch eine klare, schnörkellose Sprache, einen enormen Faktenreichtum und präzise Detailbeschreibung aus. Es hat bis heute das Bild des Piraten im allgemeinen Bewusstsein, Literatur, später Film und Populärkultur am nachhaltigsten beeinflusst. Die hier vorliegende Ausgabe geht auf die 1684 erschienene erste englische Auflage zurück, wurde nur leicht überarbeitet und ist dennoch außerordentlich gut lesbar. | Autor: Alexandre O. Exquemelin, manchmal auch John Esquemeling oder Oexmelin genannt, war ein Seefahrer, Pirat und Autor. 1666 kam er als Angestellter der französischen Westindien-Kompagnie nach Tortuga (Île de la Tortue), einer kleinen Karibikinsel vor der Nordküste Haitis. Dort heuerte er 1669 als Freibeuter an und erlebte zahllose Kaperfahrten unter verschiedenen Piratenkapitänen mit. Noch nach einem Freibeuterangriff auf die Stadt Cartagena im Jahr 1697 wurde sein Name auf der Musterrolle gelistet. Er schrieb den Klassiker aller Piratenbücher. | Herausgeber: Armin Fischer ist Autor in München. Er beschäftigt er sich schwerpunktmäßig mit Medizin-, und Wissenschaftsthemen. Aus einem Studium der Geschichte der Naturwissenschaften ist ein Faible für historische und nautische Themen geblieben. | Zweisprachige Ausgabe: Deutsch-englische Edition auf Basis eines wenig veränderten englischen Originalmanuskripts. Alle Erläuterungen und Begleitartikel deutsch. Mit einem Begleitwort (deutsch) von James Hamilton-Paterson.

From the very earliest days of history there have been pirates, and it is, therefore, not at all remarkable that, in the early days of the history of this continent, sea-robbers should have made themselves prominent; but the buccaneers of America differed in many ways from those pirates with whom the history of the old world has made us acquainted. It was very seldom that an armed vessel set out from an European port for the express purpose of sea-robbery in American waters. At first nearly all the noted buccaneers were traders. But the circumstances which surrounded them in the new world made of them pirates whose evil deeds have never been surpassed in any part of the globe. These unusual circumstances and amazing temptations do not furnish an excuse for the exceptionally wicked careers of the early American pirates; but we are bound to remember these causes or we could not understand the records of the settlement of the West Indies. The buccaneers were fierce and reckless fellows who pursued their daring occupation because it was profitable, because they had learned to like it, and because it enabled them to wreak a certain amount of vengeance upon the common enemy. But we must not assume that they inaugurated the piratical conquests and warfare which existed so long upon our eastern seacoasts. Before the buccaneers began their careers, there had been great masters of piracy who had opened their schools in the Caribbean Sea; and in order that the condition of affairs in this country during parts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries may be clearly understood, we will consider some of the very earliest noted pirates of the West Indies. When we begin a judicial inquiry into the condition of our fellow-beings, we should try to be as courteous as we can, but we must be just; consequently a man's fame and position must not turn us aside, when we are acting as historical investigators.

Pirate Life on the Spanish Main, 1674-1688

In 1674, it is three years since Henry Morgan’s pirates sacked Panama. England is now at peace with Spain, and soon France, Holland, and Spain will briefly be at peace among themselves. But soon buccaneers and their French counterparts, the filibusters, will seize the opportunity of material gain presented by the far-flung and failing Spanish Empire. And Spain will produce its own notorious pirates, whose depredations against the English and French will become legend. These men of opportunistic calculation and desperate courage live in a wilder, larger, and richer time and place than any other frontier in modern history—the Spanish Main. Unflinchingly, unhesitatingly, unabashedly, they will take to the peaceful seas for riches by force of arms. The world will witness piracy on a grand scale. While Benerson Little’s previous work showed brilliantly how pirates actually plied their trade, The Buccaneer’s Realm focuses on their cultural and physical environments. It describes not merely their deeds but their world—the New World of the Spanish Main and its many peoples, freedoms, dangers, and exploits that are the foundation of the Americas. A detailed and lively description of pirate life, it will especially appeal to readers with an interest in maritime, naval, military, and colonial history, as well as sociologists, anthropologists, and armchair adventurers.
