= Sabin 4737; Van Doorne/ Van Kempen 0580a; Kolfin p.61-69 and passim. "Benoit bezocht Suriname waarschijnlijk in 1830-1831, uit louter reislust en nieuwsgierigheid. Hij was een buitenstaander op doorreis, zonder financiële belangen in Suriname. In die hoedanigheid kon hij, mede onder invloed van de biedermeier-mode, met een licht ironische blik kijken naar de Surinaamse samenleving van toen. (...) Het boek dankt zijn befaamdheid aan die steendrukken. Voyage à Surinam is dan ook bedoeld als plaatwerk, de tekst is ondergeschikt aan de afbeeldingen. (...) Desalniettemin is de tekst zeer interessant omdat daaruit blijkt dat Benoit het beeld van Stedman wilde corrigeren. Benoit verklaarde zich een tegenstander van de slavenhandel, die hij "de stuitende handel in mensenvlees" noemde. Abolitionist was hij echter niet, in tegendeel. Hij pleitte echter wel voor een humane behandeling van de slaven, meer in het belang van de planters zelf dan omwille van de menselijkheid. (...) Hij legde een uitgesproken etnografische interesse aan de dag. Benoit was niet geïnteresseerd in het straffen van slaven of in typische slavenarbeid als veld- of molenwerk, maar in een aantal aspecten van het dagelijks leven van de bevolking in Suriname."
