The making of the English middle class : business, society, and family life in London, 1660-1730 by Peter Earle( Book )

28 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first major study of a neglected yet extremely significant subject: the London middle classes in the period between 1660 and 1730, a period in which they created a society and economy that can be seen with hindsight to have ushered in the modern world. Using a wealth of material from contemporary sources - including wills, business papers, inventories, marriage contracts, divorce hearings, and the writings of Daniel Defoe and Samuel Pepys - Peter Earle presents a fully rounded picture of the "middling sort of people," getting to the hearts of their lives as men and women struggling for success in the biggest, richest, and most middle-class city in contemporary Europe. He examines in fascinating and convincing detail the business life of Londoners, from apprenticeship through the problems and potential rewards of different occupational groups, going on to look at middle-class family, social, political and material life - from relationships with spouses, children, servants, and neighbors, to food and clothes and furniture, to sickness, death, and burial. Stimulating, scholarly, and constantly illuminating, this book is an important and impressive contribution to English social history

The sack of Panamá : Captain Morgan and the battle for the Caribbean by Peter Earle( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captain Henry Morgan's capture of the city of Panamá in 1671 is seen as one of the most audacious military operations in history. Social and maritime historian Earle retells the story, combining thorough research with an emphasis on the battles that made Morgan a pirate legend. Morgan's raid was the last in a series of brutal attacks on Spanish possesions in the Caribbean, all sanctioned by the British crown. Earle recounts the five violent years leading up to the raid, then delivers a detailed account of Morgan's march across enemy territory, as his soldiers contended with hunger, tropical diseases, and possible ambushes from locals. The book also covers the alarmed reactions of diplomats and statesmen in Madrid and London. While Morgan and his men were laying siege to Panamá, the simmering hostilities between the two nations resulted in vicious political infighting that rivaled the military battles in intensity.--From publisher description

Treasure hunt : shipwreck, diving, and the quest for treasure in an age of heroes by Peter Earle( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A remarkable book, in which a very wide spectrum of human behavior is on show--from colossal gullibility on the one hand, to extraordinary ingenuity and determination on the other." 'The Daily Telegraph (UK) Treasure Hunt is the story of an obsession. Rumors of Spanish treasure, or gold and silver at the bottom of the sea, have been a part of maritime lore for centuries. In 1687, Captain William Phips brought back to port an incredible cargo--nearly forty tons of silver and gold--the treasure of the Spanish galleon ConcepciOn, wrecked over forty years before on a coral reef in the middle of the ocean. The unimaginable had become real, and the great treasure-hunting boom had begun. Soon after Phips's success, there were numerous expeditions that meant to emulate his stunning achievement. During that same time there was also a boom in the invention of crude and often very dangerous diving equipment. Many of these new projects were promoted on the infant stock market, where gambling and treasure hunting became closely connected with the birth of modern capitalism. By the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, treasure hunting had become a professional occupation, with a new breed of diver emerging. Much of their time was spent salvaging the wrecks of English and Dutch East-Indiamen carrying treasure to 'nance business in Asia. Ever since, men have been prepared to risk life and fortune in the search for underwater riches. The author of numerous books of maritime history, including The Pirate Wars and The Sack of PanamA, world-renowned historian Peter Earle returns with an extraordinary and little-known history--of outstanding bravery, of exceptional recklessness, and above all, oftheunquenchable lustfor treasure
