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.
