An account of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade by a participant, Captain Theodore Canot (1804-1860). His narrative as a slaver in Africa and the West Indies, as recorded by Baltimore historian, Brantz Mayer, includes much on the slave trade in the interior of Africa including journeys to Timbo, Timbuktu, Kambia, Dahomey, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.

“This memoir, as well as being a circumstantial account of the slave trade, is a document in the intellectual history of racism. Mayer saw in Canot’s story a confirmation of his own facile assumptions concerning the slavery question, and he provided Canot’s narrative of skulduggery with a moral for his times.” – Mayer

 

This 1854 edition included engraved illustration plates depicting “Inspection and sale of a Negro,” “Branding a Negress,” and “The Massacre at Digby,” among others!
