Ceylon’s natural environment underwent huge changes during the nineteenth century due to the importation of new crops, above all the coffee tree from Ethiopia, cinchona from the Andes, and tea from the Himalayas. We evocatively examine transformations to Taylor’s environs including his natural surroundings, health, living conditions, and social relations.
