Frontispiece portrait in first volume. Half title in each volume. Contemp. half calf. An important narrative of travel in the Caribbean, Louisiana, and West Florida. The first volume describes the author's voyages and his visits to Martinique and St. Domingo, ending with his arrival at Pensacola in 1803. In the second volume he gives an account of his stay in Pensacola and journey to New Orleans, which he describes in great detail. He was present at ceremonies turning Louisiana over to the United States both in New Orleans and in Natchitoches. He spent considerable time exploring in western Louisiana and gives an excellent account of the country, its natural history, the crops and agriculture of Louisiana, the French inhabitants of the area, and the climate. He also discusses the limits of Louisiana, the problems of the border with Spain, the new American government of Louisiana, and other civil and political questions. "He gives a most ample description of Louisiana's western interior and of Spanish Texas"
Charles César Robin's "Voyages dans l'intérieur de la Louisiane" was published in 1807. The following year Robin wrote to Napoleon, then emperor, urging him to occupy Florida, which he believed could serve as a base for a renewed French American empire.!
