The Beinecke Library is happy to announce the recent acquisition of the archive of Thomas Thistlewood, 18th-century British planter in Jamaica. Spanning more than thirty-five years, from before Thistlewood’s arrival in Jamaica in 1750 through his death in 1786, the archive comprises some 92 volumes of diaries and notebooks.
