Port Royal - Bridewell Prison

Port Royal Bridewell Prison

In the 1680’s Port Royal Jamaica  was a wild and wooly place. The largest town in the Caribbean, rivaling Boston and New York.   It was a center of government and a financial powerhouse fueled by pirate loot.  It is said there was a tavern for every ten inhabitants and it had the reputation of being the “Wickedest City  in the New World”.  For sure, it had two prisons -  Bridewell being one of them.   

And so it was until June 7 1692 at 11:43am when a massive earthquake followed by a tidal wave sank two thirds of the city into the sea.   Sailors, soldiers, and marines, pirates, tavern keepers and many common folk found the same watery graves along with massive amounts of pirate loot.

Reviresco’s cut and fold paper kit of Bridewell Prison gives you three choices of  roofs:  shingles,  slates and colorful tiles.     You can print out the walls with stone, plaster or old cracked plaster finish.   Included with the kit are lamps, barrels, and a two wheel cart ad interest to the structure.    Interior floor layouts in full 1/64th scale are also included so you can show actions inside the prison.   The kit is designed to be constructed over .2 inch foam core so you will have a structurally sound building which will withstand pirate raids,  attacks by Spaniards and maybe even an earthquake – if someone shakes the table.   Exclusive of the ground sheet the completed kit measures 7 x 7 x 6 inches.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
