AMURATH-EFFENDI HEKIM-BACHI (PIETER VAN WOENSEL)
West-Indische Fragmenten of losse uittrekzels uit een drietal brieven, geschreeven uit de Coloni?n Suriname, Demeraeij en de Berbice, in: De Lantaarn voor 1796.
Amsterdam, in't nieuwe licht, 1796, 1st edition. in-16, Paperback. Black & White images. Conditie: Very good, In paper bind. Hinges weak. Van Woensel writes that most plantation directors are ex-soldiers who have served in Suriname. These are, according to him, simple people with hardly any education and few skills. "The real centre point of the colony is the administrator who lives in the city and has sometimes twenty or thirty plantations under his management. Van Woensel writes about the Great Sunday; the day, once a year, on all plantations slaves receive a new garment and receive a hat. He calls this the plantation-fair; no work, but only drinking and dancing, one day a year. This dance is normally strictly prohibited.

BENOIT, P.J.
Voyage a Surinam
Amsterdam, 1968, 1839, Facsimile edition of the original edition Bruxelles 1839. Folio: 40,5 x 31 cm, Hardcover (cloth). Lithographs. Conditie: Good, Minor discouloring; plates in perfect condition. Benoit was born in 1782 in Antwerp and died in Brussels in 1854. His stay in Surinam was a private enterprise, probably in 1831. Judging from the many journeys he made into the interior and the time he spent among the Indians and Bush negroes and in the town of Paramaribo, he must have stayed in Surinam for many months. He does not refrain from pointing out the many difficulties, dangers and privations he managed to overcome during that period. Benoit belonged to the opponents of the abolition of slavery. He cannot avoid picturing the harsh and cruel daily existence of the slaves and explaining why they run away, revolt against their masters and are filled with hatred towards the whites. When describing their dance-festivals, he says that the need to find an outlet for their misery accounts for the frenzy with which they throw themselves into it. with 50 lithograpic plates depicting 100 views in b/w. .
