A description of the Scottish venture in colonizing on the Isthmus of Darien at the close of the seventeenth century. The "Disaster" arose from the strong resistance from both the English and the Spanish kings to this development. In the former case it threatened to compete with the East India Company while in the latter it was an incursion into the Spanish sphere of influence. [Suggest a different description.]
