This is an exact replica of "A Copy of Verses, Composed by Captain Henry Every, Lately Gone to Sea to seek his Fortune"

This ballad was apparently written by an anonymous author sometime between May and July 1694, although it was always rumoured to be the work of the pirate Henry Every himself. It was published by the London printer Theophilus Lewis and is sung to the music of "The Success of Two English Travellers".

It is printed on period correct laid paper and is the actual size of the original (266mm x 171mm)
