History of Jamaica with chapters on slavery and its abolition. Beginning with the discovery by Columbus and colonization by Europeans the book details physical features, climate and native plants and products for export. Of significance is the remainder of the book as the author describes the Negros and their character, from a sympathetic but European view.  The book is abolitionist in tone with a chapter on the demoralizing influence of slavery, missionary efforts and the case for abolition.
