[SHEERE, HENRY SIR]:

. Pp. (ii), 5-40. Uncut copy bound in half calf to period style, gilt spine with red gilt morocco label. First edition.

The first part of this work contains a letter about the colony, its contributions in the past and what opportunities may exist for the future, and in addition some general information regarding trade. The second part, ascribed to Henry Sheere, is mainly about the local British residents' situation and their prospects. However, the British were forced to withdraw and destroyed the city and its port before they left in 1684. Kress 1517. Playfair, Morocco, 271.
