Voyage a Surinam et Dans L'Interieur de la Guiane, Contenant la Relation de cinq Annees de Courses et d'Observations faites dans cette Contree interessante et peu connue;
Buisson, Paris, 1799. Three 8vo volumes plus one 4to atlas volume. Atlas volume is illustrated with 44 engraved plates and maps. viii + 410; 440; 506 pages. Cotemporary full mottled calf with gilt-bordered covers and decorative spines; rubbed and worn at the joints but sound and attractive; the atlas volume has more wear and a large dampstain at top edge of all pages. Paris: Chez F. Buisson, 1799 (VII). Overall a good set of this important book. Stedman vividly describes the natural surroundings of Suriname as well as the brutal conditions endured by slaves.
