    The colonial "Blue Books" for the English speaking islands of the Caribbean. These statistical records cover the years from 1839 to 1938, although some records commence from 1824 and others continue until 1950.

    The records for each colony are prefaced by a brief introduction to that colony. The population returns are published alongside education reports, while grants of land reveal who held the colonial wealth. Imports and exports are joined by prison records which reveal what the crimes were at that time. As these records are published together, the reader can compare the living conditions and access to services across colonies. The imperial statistics in this collection are listed by year for ease of reference.
