First edition, first impression, of this attractive photographic travelogue. “After some notes on Bristol, which, though scarcely relevant, we are glad to have, and a brief account of the voyage out, Mr. Leader begins with his proper subject. This is the scenery, the industry, and the population, white and coloured, of the island. Perhaps among the population should be reckoned the ants, cockroaches, flies, and the insects generally, making up as they do an important element in life. Other topics are dealt with in the volume, and in an interesting way. The illustrations are excellent” (The Spectator).

Octavo, original green pictorial cloth, title gilt to spine and front board. Coloured map frontispiece, pictorial half-title, numerous illustrations to the text. Just a little rubbed, front free endpaper neatly excised, contemporary ownership inscription to the title page,a little shaken as often, otherwise very good.
