Bittersweet: A Story of Four Jamaican Plantations

This booklet was written to supplement the Bittersweet exhibition held at Tissington Hall, Derbyshire during the summer of 2007, which year marked the 200th anniversary of the law abolishing the transatlantic slave trade from Britain. It describes the life and work on four Jamaican sugar plantations inherited by the FitzHerbert family in the eighteenth century and subsequently managed from Tissington Hall.
