Synopsis: Excerpt from Jamaica: Its History, Constitution, and Topographical Description With Geological and Meteorological Notes Compiled for the Use of Schools
For years past I have been urged to prepare a Class-book of Jamaica for the use of Schools. After much hesitation - hoping that some one with more leisure than I had to bestow on the work would undertake it - I began to compile a History and Description of the Island, which I had nearly completed when two other volumes appeared. On perusing them I find that they do not supply the want of this volume, neither will it hinder their usefulness: therefore I have ventured to put this before the public.
The boundaries of Parishes, &c. have not been given, because such knowledge is more easily acquired by a class before the map.
No questions have been appended, because it is considered a very profitable exercise to require a class, with book in hand, to frame questions on the chapters and subjects in succession, and then, when questions have been framed on given portions, to lay the book aside and proceed to answer them in the pupil's own style. This should be done in the usual Exercise Books.
My maps are obtainable, mounted and varnished, or in sheets, or in book form; and it is hoped that these and the book will prove highly interesting and acceptable to the youth of Jamaica, among whom I have so long laboured.
