This is the title page of Henry Nelson Coleridge's 'Six months in the West Indies.' Coleridge, who was the nephew and son-in-law (he married his cousin) of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, went to the Caribbean in 1825 to improve his health. He travelled around the islands, writing detailed descriptions of the landscape, plants and animal life, and the different customs of the inhabitants. He soon became convinced by the Abolitionists' arguments and supported the call for an end to slavery.
