This is the second of a pair of volumes publishing the unedited full reports of Robert Schomburgk's travels in Guiana between 1835 and 1844, previously available only in greatly abridged and heavily edited versions. It covers the journeys made by Schomburgk when surveying and establishing the boundaries of British Guiana, now Guyana, between 1841 and 1843.
