Item Description:"... there is little that the author can call his own. The greater part of it is a palpable plagiarism, and the adoption is rendered less valuable by the mutilated and imperfect state in which it was sent into the world."--Poyer, Hist. of Barbados, 1808, p. x. - Attributed to G. Frere--Cf. NUC pre-1956. - Goldsmiths'-Kress no. 10451. - Higgs, H. Bibl. of economics, 4392. - OCLC, 23935626. - Reproduction of original from Goldsmiths' Library, University of London. - Schomburgk, History of Barbados, 1743, p. vii, refers to the author simply by his surname, remarking that he seems merely to have copied from Oldmixon and the "Memoirs of the first settlement of the island of Barbados."
