  • Volume 2 has t.p.: Bucaniers of America. The second volume. Containing the dangerous voyage and bold attempts of Captain Bartholomew Sharp, and others; performed upon the coasts of the South Sea, for the space of two years, &c. From the original journal of the said voyage. Written by Mr. Basil Ringrose, gent. who was all along present at those transactions. London: Printed for William Crooke ... 1685.
