Travels Through The Middle Settlements In North America In the Years 1759 and 1760 ; With Observations Upon the State of the Colonies
With intro by Rufus Rockwell Wilson. Burnaby's was an acute though kindly observer, and his visit to the colonies fell in an interesting and critical time: the Seven Years War which wrought the downfall of the French power in America was just drawing to a close, and in the political sky was heard the low, insistent rumblings of the storm which was to break at Concord and Bunker Hill. Researchers and general readers alike will appreciate the detailed observations of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. The appendices in this expanded edition contain a catalog of plants and animals, several statistical tables referring to the Commerce of America, Anecdotes of Indians, and a Diary of the Weather. Editorial notes, and a fullname plus subject index enhance this work.
