Book 32 was a thrift store find. A History of Pirates: Blood and Thunder on the High Seas by Nigel Cawthorne.
This book gives a history of piracy, from the pirates and privateers who attacked merchant ships, to their way of life, and talking about the weapons and ships they used. It also goes into some detail about the decline of piracy, ending largely with Calico Jack and Black Bart. The chapters are a bit unorganized with their content, but it’s still an enjoyable and informative read.
