Description

"View of Gracebay in the island of Antigua in the West Indies" (caption translation). Shows plantation house in the background; and in the foreground, a man is carrying a hoe and a woman is holding a child in her arms, while carrying a bundle on her head. One of a set of four separately published engravings, which were likely compiled by John Henry Lewis Stobwasser, probably the son of Johann H. Stobwasser, who was a Moravian missionary in Antigua from 1812 until 1822; he died in Berlin in 1832 (information courtesy of Perry Miles, derived from research in Moravian Archives, London).
