Description

First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Leather Binding, Very Scarce

The very scarce first edition of this work.

Illustrated with a folding map to the frontispiece.

Collated, complete. Collated from Jisc from a copy held at the University of Leeds Library.

A notable travel work on Demerara, a detailed and vivid account of the author's travels there from November 1798 to October 1805.

During this trip Bolingbroke also visited and documented other British colonies of the Guiana.

This work explores the history and culture of Demerara and the surrounding areas, as well as questioning the practice of slavery, and ruminating on subjects such as coffee and sugar cultivation.
