1797-1897. An Illustrated Souvenir Album of the Centenary of Trinidad. Price Four Shillings.
Author: Paget, J. Dunn, W. A., photographer.
Publisher: [Government Printing Office, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, 1897]

Oblong 8vo; 40, [29] p., 34 plates incl. portrait front.; 16 x 24 cm. "This 'Souvenir Album' has been prepared with a view of bringing more prominently before the notice of strangers and tourists the varied attractions and natural resources of Trinidad, which for tropical scenery is unsurpassed. ...The most that I have ventured to undertake is to chronicle the festivities of the Centenary celebrations, and to briefly give other useful information, by the aid of numerous illustrations, of some of the principal places and objects of interest in the island. ...to interest those in quest of pleasure and change from the rigours of a northern winter to a sunny and temperate clime. I am therefore hopeful that my venture will favourably impress those who may be unacquainted with the beautiful scenery of 'The Land of the Humming Bird.' J. Paget, Manager Govt. Printing & Binding Depôt." Illustrations include Centenary General Committee (named), St. Ann's Road, Zebu Cattle, Country Scene in Cauba, Anglican Cathedral, Festival at St. Joseph, Procession of Friendly Societies, Natives Breaking Cocoa, Fire Brigade Display, Botanic Gardens, East Indian Group, Cocoa Drying House, View of Railway Extension, A Road in the Cemetery, Blue Basin, Family Hotel. Advertisements, [29] p. at end, include piano warehouse, shippers, merchants ("Well Ventilated & Lighted"), drapers, a dentist, jewelers, printers, leather goods, lumber, pharmacies, hotels. "This Album has been printed and bound throughout at the Government Printing Office, the Illustrations being reproductions from Photographs specially taken for the occasion by Mr. W. A. Dunn of the well known Trinidad Studio, Frederick Street, Port-of-Spain." Flexible green cloth stamped in gold; some ink spots on front cover; spine re-glued; VG. stock#886.
