Bryan Edwards had already written a work on the British West Indies when he turned his attentions to the French colony of Saint-Domingue. The portion of the history of Saint-Domingue was reprinted in his three volume work, The history, civil and commercial, of the British colonies in the West Indies, London, 1801. This work contains useful information on trade and commerce, productions and yields, and an account of the British force’s occupation of the island.
