Very rare printing of Guadeloupe: publication from the presses of the widow of Jean Bénard, the first printer of the island, whom she succeeded in 1784.
First convocation of the Colonial Assembly of Guadeloupe, created in the colony by royal decree of June 17, 1787, which brought together the deputies of the various parishes and was presided over by the baron de Clugny, governor of the island.
Among the major deliberations of the Assembly were works to be carried out on the island, the prosperity of the colony and especially the question of taxation for the inhabitants: the white European workers, the Negroes and people of color, free by birth or freed, and the slaves of the cities and towns.
The last deliberation is entitled Délibération particulière, concernant l'assiette de la taxe des Nègres suppliciés.
Only one copy is listed in the Worldcat catalogue, that of the BnF.
