Cannada zucchero; Plantazio di zucchero

Description

"Sugar Cane; Sugar Plantation" (caption translation). This illustration shows the layout of a sugar plantation. Slave houses were on the left, and above them the mansion/great house. A water mill was in lower right with a cane field in the center. This image does not appear in the London edition of the American Gazetteer and seems to have been included especially for the Italian publication. This is a reverse image from the original source for this illustration: Denis Diderot, Encyclopedie . . . (Paris, 1762), vol. 1, plate 1. See also image sucrerie_plate1.
