Extraordinary collection of commentaries by ships' doctors and captains, as well as written testimonies for a parliamentary committee investigating the slave trade. Accounts 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.
Reprint of the 1927 edition.
