About This Item

London: Printed by W. Mitchener, 1860. Hardcover. Very good overall. Instructions from the Commissioners of Audits approved by Queen Victoria's Commissioners of the Treasury which were provided to the Agents General of British colonies. Among the "Supplies" procured and forwarded to the colonies are included "Sub-Marine Telegraph Cables, Steam Vessels, Dredging Vessels" showing a keen involvement with advancing telegraph capabilities after the successful launching of the first telegraphic cable across the Atlantic by the Great Eastern in 1858. The instructions include two types of colonies, "Crown" and "Representative", seemingly related to the application of the instructions which are "Strictly Applied" in Crown Colonies and "Applied when Practicable" in Representative Colonies. The Crown Colonies include many islands of the Caribbean - Bermuda, Jamaica, Grenada, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Turks Islands and Trinidad. Bermuda is unusually listed "Convict Service only (partly representative).
