Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This contains a collection of letters from a Jamaican plantation attorney, Simon Taylor, to his absentee employer, Chaloner Arcedeckne, between 1765 and 1775, about the affairs of Arcedeckne's Golden Grove plantation in St Thomas in the East. Taylor was one of the most influential men in the island, with wide connections, and the letters are essential to any understanding of how sugar planations were married. They are copiously and clearly annotated in the model publication, now available for considerably less that its original over the counter price. Anyone with the remotest interest in the field should not hesitate.

The Taylor letters occupy half the volume. The rest is made up of a record of three nineteenth century voyages to West Africa by a Bristolian, John Langdon, (1864-1937)which is held in Bristol, preceded by a valuable introduction and full of detail.
