Some brief overview of book

Matthew Lewis is best remembered as the author of the sensational Gothic novel The Monk. He was also a slave-owner, inheriting two large plantations and making two visits to Jamaica to investigate the living and working conditions of his slaves. His anecdotal record, the Journal of a West India Proprietor, offers a vivid account of plantation life from the slave owner's perspective.

This edition provides full contextual background and includes Lewi's verse narrative The Isle of Devils, as well as a telling last letter and extract from his papers.
