That book is the Pirate's Code. Some of it goes way back.
Jack Sparrow to Esmeralda

The Pirata Codex, commonly referred to as the Pirate's Code, the Pirate Code or simply the Code, was a large book containing the entire Code of the Pirate Brethren set forth in the classic Age of Piracy by the Pirate Lords Henry Morgan and [|Black Bart "Bartholomew" Roberts]. It was comprised of one thousand textured parchment pages.

History

The Code."
"As set forth by Morgan and Bartholomew.
Pintel and Ragetti upon looking at the Pirata Codex.[src]

The book had embossed covers and weighed around eighty pounds.[2] It remained padlocked while not in use, with the key guarded by the Prison Dog. Captain Edward Teague served as the Keeper of the Code at Shipwreck Cove, and cited from the Codex during the fourth meeting of the Brethren Court. The Code was commonly passed on by word of mouth, so the Codex itself was rarely consulted.[3]

Captain Teague reads from the Code.

Notable articles

Code is the law.
Edward Teague[src]

Articles of the Pirata Codex included:

  • The Right of Parley
  • Artycle II, Section I, Paragraph VIII (sharing of the spoils)
  • Artycle II, Section II, Paragraph I (whoever first spotted a treasure-laden ship could choose the best pistol for themselves)

The Codex also contained numerous rules and guidelines, including on how to maroon a man, useful rum-based recipies and amendments for governing piracy in the South China Seas.[3] The Codex even provided guidelines on how marooning should be done.[4] There was also a passage which mentioned mythic weapons, like the Trident of Poseidon, and strictly forbid pirates possessing such weapons, because they were too powerful and too dangerous.[5] Trading among pirates was also regulated in the Codex, which said that any pirate could buy something and resell it at profit.[6]

Notes and references

  1. According to Pirates of the Caribbean: Legends of the Brethren Court books and a deleted scene from At World's End, the Pirate Code was produced during the Second Brethren Court. This means that the Codex had to be made at that time as well.
