4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Marco Antonio Abarca VINE VOICE on February 28, 2007
Pirates and Buccaneers is a popular survey of pirate life during the golden epic of Carribean piracy in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries. Lapouge writes well but he has nothing especially new or different to say about pirate life. There are many books that follow the same general line.

However, what sets this book apart from the usual pirate survey book are the wonderful illustrations that fill the book. Along with the usual classic illustrations of Howard Pyle and NC Wyeth, Lapouge draws upon many European images that are new and exciting. This book was originally published by the French publisher, Hachette. I do not know what it is about European publishers but as a group they produce superior illustrated books to their American counterparts. This book can be purchased at a very reasonable price and for all those who love images of pirate life this book is a great value. Highly recommended.
