Om föremålet

In 1795 Isaac Weld sailed to North America from his home in Ireland where he set out to visit some of the most famous landmarks in the United States. While touring the sites became an important focus for his book, he also was searching for locations that would be suitable for Irish immigrants. According to the ODNB, Weld was “often guided by Indians in his explorations of the vast forests and great rivers. ‘His descriptions were influential because they were relatively early and were long included in compilations of travelers’ reports on the United States, despite his general lack of sympathy with the American patriots.” Howes even supports this notion by stating that Weld “thought Canada preferable to the States.” Weld was also critical of American slavery. In ‘Travels’ he is quoted – “..there will be an end to slavery in the United States…[as] negroes will not remain deaf to the inviting call of liberty forever.” and Americans in general “civility cannot be purchased from them on any terms; they seem to think that it is incompatible with freedom…”. On Washington, DC, he wrote “If the affairs of the United States go on as rapidly as they have done, it will become the grand emporium of the West, and rival in magnitude and splendor the cities of the whole world.” This 1800 edition was the first French printing of Weld’s travels in North America and is illustrated with fine, full-page engravings of his encounters. $599.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!
