About this product
- DescriptionText in English & Danish. Danish and Norwegian ships began sailing to the Caribbean in the middle of the seventeenth century. In 1672, the newly founded West India Company established a colony on St. Thomas. In the following years, the production of sugar gradually increased on the island, and in 1718, despite English protests, the company took possession of the somewhat smaller neighboring island St. Jan. A few years later, in 1733, it purchased the slightly more distant island St. Croix from the French. For the next two and a half centuries, the Danish flag would wave over the three islands. Sukker og Guld (Sugar and Gold) recounts the history of the period, focusing primarily on the story of the goldsmiths who lived and worked there. The book can be read as a general historical account of the colonization as well as a register of the individual jewelers. It includes numerous photos and illustrations in colour.
