Content : Title from folder.

Content : Printed on border: "Before the English had made any settlement at Jamaica, and the French at St. Domingo, some pirates of both nations, who have since been so distinguished by the name of buccaneers, had driven the Spaniards out of the small island of Tortuga, situated at the distance of two leagues from St. Domingo, and fortifying themselves there, had made incursions with amazing intrepidity against the common enemy. They formed themselves into small companies, consisting of fifty or a hundred each. These bands styled themselves 'The Brethren of the Coast;' but they soon became famous the world by the name of buccaneers…" Pink marks on image.
