This four-volume collection brings together rare pamphlets from the formative years of the English involvement in the Caribbean. Texts presented in the volumes cover the first impressions of the region, imperial rivalries between European traders and settlers and the experience of day-to-day life in the colonies.
For those who delve into the history of the Caribbean, this will be an indispensible tool. For those who chronicle the Carolina past, Gardina and Salinger’s work will offer valuable documentary insights into the place that those first settlers came from. If we gave starred reviews, The Early English Caribbean, 1570-1700 would get four of them. - Jack Fryar, Carolina Chronicles Magazine
