Description:

J. Brown. The History and Present Condition of St. Domingo. Phil: William Marshall and Co., 1837, 1st. printing, 2 volumes, 397/289 pp. *** A rare history of Haiti, written in the early days of that country's independence. Brown lived there for over a year in 1833-34, during which time he collected the most authentic intelligence of Haiti's history, and investigated the condition and operation of things under the present dynasty of the blacks. The history is replete with many interesting events and personalities, including pirates, explorers, and European colonizers. His observations of the social and political conditions in Haiti after independence are very detailed with facts and names seldom mentioned in other sources. His summation in his Preface reads as follows I might add, that a moral is perhaps to be drawn by us from the events here described; namely, that political abuses are sooner or later repaid by popular vengeance; and that we should not, by ignorant or unnecessary legislation, disturb the arrangement of the social order under which experience has assured us that our national prosperity is safe. Bookplates on front end papers for Charles E. Putnam, book no. 320. This book comes with a clear mylar protective cover. *** Bound in brown cloth boards and spine with blind stamped floral decoration, paper label on spine. The covers have light soil, moderate wear, two corners bumped, two small dents on bottom edges, some light spotting here and there, moderate sunning on spines. Traces of old labels on spines. Contents are clean and complete in good bindings, occasional light foxing, end papers with heavier foxing. *** 7.25 inches tall by 4.75 inches. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The History and Present Condition of St. Domingo, Vol. 2 of 2 Gen. Hedouville had proclaimed that all the blacks of St. Domingo were free, but that they were to labor as formerly upon the plantations, and the productions of the country were to be divided in the proportions of one third to the black laborers, one third to the French republic, and the remaining third to the proprietors of the plantations. It was further ordered by the commissioner, that all colonists who had been in the service of England, and all who had emigrated to other lands, should be expelled forever from St. Domingo, and their property be confiscated to the state. Toussaint, on the other hand, made proclamation that there existed a general amnesty in favor of all those accused of political offences - that the name emigrant no longer existed as a term of reproach or an object of persecution - and that all former proprietors, without a single exception, were invited back to their homes, to place themselves under the protection of the new government. The future freedom of the negroes was ratified by him, but it was dependent solely upon the condition of their continuing to labor for their ancient masters.
