The Journals of Dr. Thomas Coke
John Ashley Vickers
Kingswood Books, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 293 pages
Autobiographical journals of Thomas Coke, an important figure to both American and Methodist history.
In these journals Thomas Coke gives contemporaneous detailed impressions of late-18th century North America from his nine visits and four Caribbean tours. Using the 1816 edition of the journals as a base, Vickers compares it to earlier editions and, where available, to the manuscript journal, noting any variations.
