About this Item

TURNBULL, David. Travels in the West. Cuba; with Notices of Porto Rico, and the Slave Trade. London: Printed for Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1840. 1st ed. xvi,574pp. Engraved map frontis. Orig. blindstamped cloth. Spine lightly sunned, light shelfwear, light scattered foxing to foredge, else a very good or better, partially unopened copy. Turnbull was a foreign correspondent for The Times. He was an ardent abolitionist and worked with Lord Clarendon, the British representative to Spain, to insure that the Spanish government ended slavery. In 1838 he visited Cuba, where slavery was still legal, and wrote this work. In 1840 he was named the British consul to Cuba. Cuba expelled him in 1842, accusing him of attempting to incite a slave revolt. Hence, this book, despite its title, is less a travel book about Cuba than an exploration of slavery in Cuba.
