BERCKMAN, Evelyn. Victims of Piracy : The Admiralty Court 1575-1678. London: Hamish Hamilton, (1979). Pp 134,  pp plates. 8vo, blue cloth. Evelyn Domenica Berckman (b. October 18, 1900, Philadelphia – d. September 18, 1978, Kensington, London). "In this fascinating book Evelyn Berckman studies piracy from the largely neglected viewpoint of plundered merchant-importers and abused seamen, along with other crimes that came before the Admiralty Court, which examined them with ruthless thoroughness. An enormous mass of highly personal and detailed records survives, and light is thrown on little-known facets of history." -from the dj. Very good in slightly nicked dustjacket. 60.00
