Slave Ships and Slaving by George Francis Dow

Regular price $17.95 Sale price $19.95 Unit price per
Extraordinary collection of commentaries by ships' doctors and captains, as well as written testimonies for a parliamentary committee investigating the slave trade. Accounts, varying from sympathetic to indifferent, relate horrifying events and conditions--the holding pens or "factories," living conditions aboard ships, mutinies and their suppression, and more. 54 period engravings and other illustrations accompany the grim record. Unabridged reprint of the classic 1927 edition.

An "Eye Opener"
This book reveals a lot of information that has not been previously disclosed concerning the origin and development of the original slave trade. It is heart rending in some revelations but does fill in some gaps in the history of the slave trade. I believe that everyone who has any questions about the despicable parctice of buying and selling human beings should definitely read this.
