The buccaneers of America - Alexandre Exquemelin (1678)

Summary

First published in 1678 just a few years after the described incidents took place, The Buccaneers of America is also known by the title The Pirates of Panama. For its unabashed description of adventure and thievery on the high seas, the text has captivated audiences for centuries with its frank and reasonably accurate accounts of piracy in the waters of the Caribbean and Central America.

The following document is an extract of the chapters that mention Nicaragua, the Mosquitia and the Corn Islands. The file was recovered from the Enrique Bolaños Library and digitalized by Bank of America. It was translated into Spanish by Luciano Cuadra.
