Description

John Lambert was a sympathetic observer of society and institutions in America, and he predicted great success for the nations. "The sketches of society in Quebec and Montreal are written with much humor; the descriptive portions are well done, and much important information is given on trade, ship-building and manufactures" (Larned)

Lambert also offers an account of his visit to Charleston and Savannah in 1808. The views include Plymouth (Massachusetts), Quebec, Gen. Burgoyne's camp at Saratoga, Indians, etc. The folding map shows the eastern seaboard and Canada.
