"Caldcleugh's work has great documentary value. An excellent and impartial observer, he describes Rio de Janeiro with great accuracy and studies the social, agricultural, financial and political situation in Brazil. The part referring to the mines in Minas Geraes is of great interest.
The first volume contains two very beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro." (Borba de Moraes I:144). "An example of the very important travel literature of the period" (Griffin 3455). This work also includes appendices on matters such as meteorology, the slave trade, and shipping. Without half-titles.
"The engravings are executed by Finden, from drawings made by Mr. W. Daniel. Many of the sketches were executed by ... William Waldegrave"--V. 1, p. vii
