Second book by this author on the people of the great island. As a missionary, he naturally focuses on the Christian martyrs and their persecution, but gives a fair account of the state of the population and their prospects both economically and politically. 502 pp with frontis and twelve engraved plates, NB folding map at front is missing - otherwise a beautiful volume. Beautifully bound in full calf prize-binding with lavish gilt decoration to covers and edges. Marbled endpapers and bookplate, all edges gilt.
