An incredibly rare 1791 printing of British Parliament’s abstract describing the regulations made against slave trade in West Africa. Groups of anti-slavery American colonists were seeking to end slavery both in North American and in England and did so by trying to expose the inhumane treatment and transportation of slaves. Anti-slave advocates were fighting a difficult battle, but none more so than that of economic stimulus.

 

Slavery and slave planters promised to increase economic growth in both American and in Great Britain. Abolitionists were seeking other means, through African trade, other than trading humans claiming that Africa provided a wealth of goods other than slaves. (Austin/Smith).

 

This pamphlet, collected by William Wilberforce, includes these discussions and more – an incredibly rare and early piece of anti-slavery propaganda!
