Description

The author's plan was to publish a large series of views in the West Indies with each part containing images and descriptions of the islands. The plan seems to have been abandoned after three parts because objections were made to the form in which these W.I. views were published. Apparently purchasers wanted to be able to buy individual islands. There was apparently difficulty in obtaining subscribers. A depressed Johnson wrote that so few people had come forward that he was not sure if it was worth printing the list of subscribers.

Oblong folio, errata slip, advertisement slip, half title, hand colored linen-backed map, 7 fine hand colored aquatint plates.
