John Gabriel Stedman. A Study of his Life and Times.

Stapleford, Notts: Thompson & Co, 1966. 8vo, 139 pp, with two folding charts of Stedman's family tree and 15 black and white illustrations, including two of Blake's plates for Stedman's "Surinam". Very good in dust-jacket illustrated with one of the Blake engravings. See Bentley, BB, 499 for a long note on this dispute. There are limited references to Blake, but interesting background, and reference to Stedman's bitter disputes and problems with his publisher, Joseph Johnson, and his annoyance and disappointment with Bartolozzi and his work which caused Stedman to " cancel the best part of the first volume: “ I burnt 2000 volumes ... by which they lost 200 guineas".
