Description

"View of Gracehill in the island of Antigua in the West Indies" (caption translation). This engraving shows the Gracehill plantation with the big house in the background and several enslaved children and a mother with an infant on her back in the foreground. 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).
