‎Louviers, L'Ancre de Marine, 2005, in-8 br. (15 x 22), 253 p., planches de gravures h.-t., très bon état.‎

‎Qui n'a rêvé de la vraie vie des flibustiers, racontée par tant de livres, montrée par tant de films ? Or, tout commence par ce livre , à nul autre pareil. Tout commence avec ces mémoires, authentiques, racontant les fabuleuses aventures et brossant les portraits inoubliables du capitaine Morgan, de l'Olonois, de Rock et de tant d'autres. Oui, tout commence avec ce récit véridique qui, au fil des siècles, donnera naissance à l'imaginaire, immense et romanesque de la flibuste et de la piraterie. Car cette Histoire de la Flibuste est l'œuvre d'un vrai flibustier. Quel fabuleux destin que celui d'Alexandre Oexmelin et comme il le raconte bien ! Nul ne sait où et quand il voit le jour. À l'âge de vingt ans, pour fuir la justice du Roi, il s'engage en 1666 dans la Compagnie des Indes. Le voilà esclave à l'île de la Tortue. Acheté par un chirurgien, il en apprend le métier. Et c'est comme chirurgien qu'il embarque sur un vaisseau pirate, la plume à la main. Son destin est scellé. Il sera le premier à raconter cette vie de sanglantes aventures, de vaisseaux capturés, de citadelles assiégées et de trésors cachés. Cette vie intense où le sang, la mort, l'eau-de-vie et les ripailles, la torture et les viols font un sinistre pendant à l'amour de la liberté, de l'aventure et du grand large qui lavait ces hommes de leurs crimes.,‎

‎WAVELL Field-Marshal EARL‎

‎T.L.s witten on the stationery of Wavell's residence at 23 Kingston House South, London SW7, and dated 23 December 1949.. T.L.s. FROM FIELD MARSHAL EARL WAVELL‎

‎Single sheet, a near fine copy. Signed simply 'Wavell' in the writer's usual manner, the letter is written to Geoffrey Moore, founder of the Buccaneers Cricket Club, and demonstrates the soldier's keen and continuing interest in the sport. It is noteworthy that Wavell was particularly proud of his membership of the MCC at Lords. The letter declines Moore's invitation to attend the annual dinner, but carries Wavell's best wishes for the Club for the coming year during which he hopes to see tham in action. Field-Marshal Earl Wavell (1883-1950) was one of the twentieth century's most distinguished soldiers. Following considerable success against the Italians in North Africa, his career reached its peak with his appointment as Supreme Allied Commander, South West Pacific, ABDA (American, British, Dutch and Australian) Command in 1942 and subsequently as an outstanding Viceroy and Governor General of India from 1943-1947. He was recognised also as a scholar, compiling the well-known anthology of poetry 'Other Mens's Flowers' (1944). The bulk of Wavell's papers are now housed in the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives at King's College, London.
