Glasgow, Scotland: 1896. First edition. Softcover. Item #125599

British Guiana: A sketch ( Read before the Society on Jan. 30th, 1896.) - by Sir David Chalmers, recently Chief Justice of British Guiana. Pamphlet, reprinted in 1896 from The Scottish Geographical Magazine . 8vo, extracted and bound in paper wrappers. 125-139 p. Also with a clipping laid in also by Chalmers "On the Venezuela Question" - which was the part of the speech not published in the magazine, but in the Glasgow Herald. Sir David Patrick Chalmers (1835-1899) was the first Chief Justice of the Gold Coast from 1869 to 1878 and was then appointed Chief Justice of British Guiana, a post he held until 1893, when he retired from the colonial judical service, although he continued to serve when called upon to do so, eg, in Jamaica in 1894 and Newfoundland in 1897 and as a Royal Commissioner to enquire into a native uprising in Sierra Leone in 1898. Rare, with the most critical insights into the crisis and potential South American war between Guyana and Venezuela over more than $1 trillion of oil, plus gold, diamonds and other resources of the Essequibo.
