Cap Français, [Saint Domingue]: Chez Batilliot jeune et Comp., 1792. ,17pp. Quarto. In loose gatherings. Moderately foxed. Very good. Untrimmed and unopened. A speech given by one of the French commissioners in Saint Domingue, Philippe Rose Roume de St. Laurent, before the Colonial Assembly on Feb. 24, 1792. In it, Roume attempts to define the rights and duties of the commissioners, and argues that the French National Assembly desires the application of the same measures as in Martinique, where there occurred an unsuccessful slave rebellion in 1789. Further, he asks that the Colonial Assembly not attempt to use their power to impede or countermand the work of the commissioners. Roume and his fellow commissioners remained in Saint Domingue from Nov. 29, 1791 through the first of April, 1792. Rare, as is all Caribbean printing, with OCLC recording only two copies, both at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. (Inventory #: WRCAM51788)
