New Book on Stedman?
Nathaniel Weyl lived in Surinam in 1948. He traveled with Rudolf van Leer (editor of the 1971 edition of Stedman’s Narrative) on an anthropological trip into the Djuka region of Surinam’s interior, which largely corresponds to Stedman’s terrain. Weyl requests any information on research done or in progress concerning John Gabriel Stedman and his relationship with Blake and other antislavery intellectuals in the 1790s. Before he commits to a book, Weyl would particularly appreciate information on whether current work in progress by other people has pre-empted the field, and on what new aspects of Stedman’s struggle against slavery need to be explored.
