This is potential material for Talk Like a Pirate Day. The original list is from Great Pirate Stories ed. Joseph Lewis French, and consists of the original books that he took excerpts from. Also from Great Pirate Stories, Second Series, which will require a Rule 6 clearance since the copyright date is 1925. The books from there are marked with question marks since they might be from after 1922. Other people are more than welcome to add books from other sources. --JulietS 08:41, 30 August 2007 (PDT)
