Comments: With Vocabulary of the Carib Language by Father Raymond Breton on pp. 515-27. Published to induce Huguenot immigration to the West Indies, this significant work contains much on the natural history and the French settlements there. Also there is much material on the Carib Indians. "Much of the material may have been collected by De Poincy, but the compiler of the work appears to have been Charles de Rochefort, pastor of the French Protestant church at Rotterdam, who had resided several years in the West Indies." Sabin 72316.
