Abstract:

Views of the Caribbean island of Martinique taken by S. N. Carvalho in 1872.

Depicted are the city of Fort-de-France, including dwellings, structures, a statue of French Empress Josephine, the bay and harbor, and a public square; a residence and roadway in Trois Isles (Les Trois-Îlets), the birthplace of Empress Josephine; a river front view of the Seminary of St. Joseph; miscellaneous structures; various groves and "avenues" of coconut and palm trees, including a palm tree avenue used as a dueling ground; mineral hot baths; views of a plantation near Saint-Pierre; the Governor's garden with unique species of palm trees; a cemetery; an unidentified church building; various docked ships, many in dry dock, at Fort-de-France; uniformed dock workers and sailors; and dry docks being filled with water. Some views of Fort-de-France show Mount Pelée and Les Trois-Îlets in the background.

A leather presentation bookplate attached to the inside of album cover reads "Presented to Dr. Cornelius R. Agnew by the ever grateful patient S. N. Carvalho." Attached to recto of blank in front of album is a handwritten letter from Carvalho to Dr. Agnew presenting the album as a belated gift to Agnew who had performed a cataract operation on Carvalho. The letter was probably written in 1874 following the publication of an article by Carvalho ("Rambles in Martinique," Harper's New Monthly Magazine, January 1874, 161-177) which is cited therein.
