Slavery Collection, 1709-1864
[Clippings, 1718-1899 and undated]
Assorted advertisements for sale of slaves, rewards for return of runaway slaves, the slave trade, and slavery in general, most unattributable to particular newspapers. Includes three engravings (two duplicated) of slave forts in Africa with captions, "The North Prospect of James Fort in the River Gambia," and "A View of Cape Coast Castle, with part of the Negro Town." Several advertisements are in manuscript form, and appear to be submissions for printing.
