Landscape format, 44pp, illustrations, fold out colour map of Jamaica to rear, thick card covers, cloth spine.

In February 1901 the Elder Dempster Line established a direct steamship service between Bristol (Avonmouth) and Kingston, Jamaica and thereby opened up the island for tourism. This is a detailed guide to Jamaica, including some history, written by Rhodes as he travelled around the island. This is a rare guide, only four examples are noted on COPAC. Rhodes also compiled a Steamship Guide which was published for a number of years around the turn of the century.
