About this item


About the Book

From the publishers of "Dragonology, Egyptology," and "Wizardology" comes "Pirateology." This magnificent resource offers adventurers and treasure hunters, landlubbers and sailors alike heretofore hidden knowledge of the exploits of one wickedly daring woman pirate and the lore of pirate ships, weapons, dress, customs, codes, and pirate routes.

Book Synopsis

Aar! Hoist the sails for a lavish new discovery filled with treasures -- a magnificent resource for pirate lovers everywhere.

Step lively, pirate foes and fanciers! Mysterious booty found inside a long-lost sea chest, hidden for hundreds of years off the coast of Newfoundland, has just been uncovered for your enjoyment. Within these covers is the fascinating eighteenth-century journal of Captain William Lubber, an earnest soul who sailed the seas in search of the vicious female pirate Arabella Drummond. Prepare for a mesmerizing tale of the golden age of piracy -- from storm-tossed sailing ships to tantalizing treasure islands, from pirates' flags and fashions to their wily weapons and wicked ways. An extraordinary find for pirateologists, here is a true and complete companion for the dedicated pirate hunter.

PIRATEOLOGY's special treasures include:
- a stunning cover bearing a working compass and glittering gems
- treasure map with a missing piece -- for the canny reader to find
- multiple flaps, maps, charts, and booklets harboring codes and clues
- intricate drawings of ships' interiors
- a packet of gold dust
- a pocket sundial
- a cache of pirate letters, pieces of eight -- and a jewel as a final reward
