The Real Captain Kidd: A Vindication by Sir Cornelius Neale Dalton

This compelling book was written by Cornelius Neale Dalton, a Cambridge-educated barrister, civil servant and author. It starts with the unequivocal statement that "honest and well-meaning men have not infrequently incurred the odium of posterity, not so much by reason of any enormities of which they have themselves been guilty, as because it has been their misfortune to be set to impossible tasks by employers or comrades, to whom they have been only too faithful. Few, if any, of such men have less deserved their fate than Captain Kidd..." The digitised book is courtesy of Columbia University Libraries, New York City. (10.9 MiB, PDF, 341 pages)
