(Newcastle Upon Tyne, G.B.):Cambridge Scholars Publishing. (2010). 1st edition. xv+284pp. Illustrated. Hardcover with dust jacket.  Both book and dust jacket in fine condition. *"This book situates its contemplation of the nineteenth-century Trinidadian landscape in the context of an emerging sub-field of Caribbean postcolonial studies, by connecting the visual representation and indexing of colonial landscapes and peoples with the making of colonial power. Emphasis is placed on three pivotal image catalogues which span the pre- and post-emancipation periods and which connect the projects of British slavery and indentureship. The book unearths sketches, paintings, lithographs and engravings and analyzes them as central to the iconic framing and discipining of colonized subjects, tropical nature and the plantation landscape."...dj
