Additional Information

Captain Blood, admiral of a fleet of pirate ships, appeared originally in Premier Magazine, as nine short stories, starting in December 1920, under the title "Brethren of the Main. In 1922 Sabatini put together some of those and many more stories into what would become a very popular novel "Captain Blood: His Odissey."
This volume has both: Brethren of the Main and Captain Blood, his Odyssey.
In a second volume, we have included The Chronicles of Captain Blood and The Fortunes of Captain Blood.

The author was a proponent of basing historical fiction as closely as possible on history, therefore, much of the historical background of the novel is based on fact. The Monmouth rebels were sold into slavery as described in the book; and the shifting political alliances of the Glorious Revolution of 1688 are used as a plot device to allow Blood's return to respectability.
The first part of the story of Blood is based on Henry Pitman, a surgeon who tended the wounded Monmouth rebels and was sentenced to death by Jeffries, but his sentence was commuted to transportation to Barbados where he escaped and was captured by pirates.
