Higgins was an eminent Irish chemist who was commissioned by the colonial assembly to investigate ways to improve sugar and rum production in Jamaica. He lived there and investigated for a few years and published his findings in 1797, 1800 and 1801 in St. Jao de la Vega in Jamaica. Part III, translated here, contains the bulk of the information in the first two along with corrections to their errors. Likely translated in order to bring these advancements to the early Cuban sugar and rum industry which subsequently underwent a terrific period of growth and modernization. Quantity Available: 1.
