Plate from James Hakewill's 'A Picturesque Tour of the island of Jamaica' (seven parts, 1824-5). Hakewill (1778-1843) was an architectural draughtsman best known for his books, which documented visits to Jamaica, Paris, and Italy (in which Hakewill's sketches were the basis for watercolours by JMW Turner subsequently engraved for the book).
