A Natural History of Nevis and the Rest of the English Leeward Charibee Islands in America: With Many Other Observations on Nature and Art?.

Published as a series of letters in correspondence with a University of Cambridge professor, this work describes the native plants, animals, and people that William Smith observed during his time as Rector of St. John’s Parish on Nevis, one of Britain’s Leeward Islands. Interspersed in the letters about natural history are some discussing cryptography, a topic in which Smith seemed to have a great interest.
