Good Half calf A very informative memoir with numerous biographical notes. Rivas (1825-1901) was an important politician and statesman, and an author of the abolition of Colombian slavery. Griffin 5122. "A pleasant, useful, but discursive essay without scholarly apparatus. There is much more than the workers of the hot country offered to the reader. Of those chapters that pertain directly to the theme, the author first picks towns in the hot county, then deals with the birth of industry and such products as indigo and coffee interspersed with poitical anecdotes" (Item ID: 140583)
