Carte de l'Emboucheure du Lac de Maracaye jusqu'a Gibraltar


A scarce map of the Lake Maracaibo area, including the city of Maracaibo and the town of Gibraltar in what is now Venezuela, from Exquemelin's famous Spanish-main pirate narrative, Histoire des aventuriers flibustiers qui se sont signal├ęs dans les Indes. Among the map's many fascinating details are cacao and tobacco plantations, Indian "tree houses," two cattle ranches, and the "lands of the Indians still not subjugated."
