About This Item
Slavery. House of Commons & House of Lords. Substance of the Debates on a Resolution for Abolishing the Slave Trade, which was moved to the House of Commons on the 10th June 1806, and in the House of Lords On the 24th June, 1806. With an Appendix, Containing Notes and Illustrations. London: Printed and Sold by Phillips and Fardon, George Yard, Lombard Street; Sold Also by John Hatchard, 190. Piccadilly. 1806. First edition, 20 cm, 8vo, [xi; 216 pages]. Errata on the verso of xi, with binder's instructions to place the fold-out illustration to be placed opposite page 192 of "View of a Slave Ship." This famous diagram shows the inhumane conditions in which African captives were brought in chains to America against their will. Uncut and untrimmed, this copy is still in the original publisher's paper boards, now worn. The front cover is detached. Housed in a worn folding box, quarter dark blue goatskin and cloth.
The debate to end slavery began in Parliament in 1789. The abolition of the British slave trade came in May of 1807, but it took more than two decades for the implementation of the law to be effectively implemented throughout the British Empire.
