ROBERTSON, William. Geschiedenis van America. Uit het Engelsch vertaald. Amsterdam, Yntema en Tieboel, 1778.4 volumes. Contemporary half roan (rubbed). With folding engraved plate and 3 (of 4) folding engraved maps. First Dutch edition, first published in London in 1777: The history of America. - 'A popular work which was reprinted several times and translated into many languages. .. Its vivid descriptions and philosophical disquisitions on aboriginal society captivated the literary world, while the outbreak of the American War lent the book pertinent public interest..' (Cox II, p.150). William Robertson (1721-1793) was a highly respected Scottish historian, clergyman and writer and is regarded, as one of the most important British historians of the 18th century. His History of America is often regarded as his most interesting work but it also shows the Eurocentric limits of his stadial thinking, because it presents an unsympathetic account of Native Americans and glosses over Spanish atrocities. Robertson wrote the first history of the discovery and Spanish conquest of America to be based on ample bibliographical information and documents in the Simancas archives. The bibliography (a catalogue of Spanish books and manuscripts) at the end of the last volume, pp. 303-322, is remarkable for the time (Borba de Moraes II, p.740 ). - A fifth volume was published in 1801 containing a translation of Books IX and X (the history of Virginia and New England).Cat.

The German physician Ernst Carl Rodschied who practised in Essequibo in the 1790s, found that classical European medicine could not be used in the treatmen of African slaves without making modifications. Rodschied, who apparently had only had limited contact with Africans, thought that slaves had few passions, did not mind being slaves and were really only interested in keeping themselves alive and (if male) in sexual contact with women. According to Rodschied, Africans had brought 'strange' diseases from Africa and their constitution was quite different from that of the Europeans owing to their distinct customs and habits (Snelders, Leprosy and Colonialism: Suriname Under Dutch Rule, 1750-1950). - (Age-browned). - Scarce.Suriname-Catalogus U.B.

SCHOMBURGK, Robert Hermann. The history of Barbados; comprising a geographical and statistical description of the island; a sketch of the historical events since the settlement; and an account of its geology and natural productions. London, Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1848.Original embossed cloth, rebacked (the original spine laid down). With tinted lithographed title page depicting Trafalgar Square in Bridgetown, coloured map, 2 plates printed in green depicting the configuration of Polycystina and 5 tinted lithographed views. XX,722 pp. First edition. - Robert Hermann Schomburgk (1804-1865) was a German-born surveyor and traveller. In 1835-1839 he explored British Guiana for the Royal Geographical Society, and in 1840 he was appointed to define its boundaries with Brazil. Knighted for his work, he then visited Barbados for the Barbados General Railway Company, publishing The History of Barbados in 1848. This substantial work contains a great deal more than a chronological narrative of the settlement and history of the island. He begins with a geographical analysis, statistical information, and an examination of the political and sociological state of Barbados. The third part is on the geology, mineral resources, and natural history of the colony. Barbados was extremely important both to British imperial policies and to her economy, playing a key role in the Atlantic trade routes, particularly for sugar. This book is a classic in West Indian history. It is a scholarly study, in many respects still the best in the entire field, based largely on research done in the British Museum Library and that of the Literary Society of Barbados. Much use has been made of official publications, local newspapers, and information gained by personal experiences and inquiry during the author's residence in the island (Ragatz p.183). - A fine copy.Abbey, Travel, 694; Sabin 77785; Hough, The Beinecke Lesser Antilles Collection, 891.
