Abstract

The Biography of Mahommah Baquaqua was transcribed by Samuel Moore in 1854, and offers insight into the early life of Baquaqua in his own words. It describes his homeland of Zoogoo (modern Djougou, Benin), his family, and his experience as a slave in Brazil and Haiti. It also notes his escape to Canada (where this narrative was primarily written) and his eventual arrival in New York, where he would go on to pursue an education. This work is notable for being one of the first texts to offer an extesnive look into the life of a enslaved person in Brazil.

Abstract

Maria Edgeworth (1 January 1768 - 22 May 1849) was a prolific Anglo-Irish writerl. These two fictional short stories were written by Maria Edgeworth in 1804 and 1796, respectively. The two were collected and published together in 1874. Edgeworth was one of the first realist writers in children's literature and was a significant figure in the evolution of the didactic realist novel in Europe. Both stories are didactic tales aimed at children. The Grateful Negro’s plot centers around two slave owners, one who is cruel and one who is not, and was frequently reprinted by abolitionists. The Birthday Present tells the tale of girl who learns a lesson about generosity, and like The Grateful Negro, it was intended to provide young abolitionists with a behavioural model to emulate.

Abstract

Maria Edgeworth (1 January 1768 - 22 May 1849) was a prolific Anglo-Irish writer. These two fictional short stories were written by Maria Edgeworth in 1804 and 1796, respectively. The two were collected and published together in 1874. Edgeworth was one of the first realist writers in children's literature and was a significant figure in the evolution of the didactic realist novel in Europe. Both stories are didactic tales aimed at children. The Grateful Negro’s plot centers around two slave owners, one who is cruel and one who is not, and was frequently reprinted by abolitionists. The Birthday Present tells the tale of girl who learns a lesson about generosity, and like The Grateful Negro, it was intended to provide young abolitionists with a behavioural model to emulate.

Abstract

The following item's full title "An Historical Survey of the French Colony in the Island of St. Domingo A Short Account of its Ancient Government, Political State, Population, Productions, and Exports; a Narrative of the Calamities which have Desolated the Country ever since the Year 1789, with some Reflections on their Causes and Probable Consequences; and a Detail of the Military Transactions of the British Army in that Island to the end of 1794" was written by Brian Edwards and published c.1797. The text provides a comprehensive survey of the British, French, and "Inhabitants" ways of life in the French Colony of St. Domingo. It also details the island's agricultural history, as well as some of its natural history. Edwards was notably pro-slavery, an idea that is ever-present throughout the text, where he also often writes of his complete disdain for the island's native people. He notes connections with many important political figures in both St. Domingo and his native Europe, and how these relationships have helped him acquire much of the information in these texts.

Abstract

Bryan Edwards (1743-1800) born in England, Edwards moved to Jamaica in 1759, where he inherited and owned seven Jamaican plantations. He entered politics and served in the Jamaican Parliament for many years and in the UK Parliament he returned in 1796. Virulently pro-slavery, Edwards was a prolific writer, amateur historian and naturalist, and fellow of the Royal Society. Divided into two volumes and six books, with each book consisting of four to five chapters with appendices. The first book describes indigenous people of the Caribbean, as well as the ancient geography, climate and ecology of the islands. The second and third books focus on the early colonial history of the Caribbean, detailing in particular Anglo-Spanish relations. The fourth book consists largely of ethnography and Edwards's discussion of slavery: Edwards provides a history of the transatlantic slave trade, describes the state of modern slavery in the Caribbean and advances his argument against abolition. The fifth book is an examination of agriculture in the Caribbean, with a focus on the sugar industry. In the sixth and final book, Edwards describes the British system of colonial government in the West Indies and describes the recent history of political and economic relations with Britain and the newly independent United States.

Abstract

The Reverend Griffith Hughes (1707–c.1758), was a Welsh naturalist and author. Hughes wrote The Natural History of Barbados, which included the first description of the grapefruit, which Hughes called "The Forbidden Fruit". His work was praised by Linnaeus. Griffith Hughes was appointed rector of St Lucy’s Barbados in 1736, where his prolonged stay (until at least 1748) gave him the opportunity to carry out research into the natural history of the island. During a visit to England in 1743 he made the acquaintance of many of the leading scientists of the day, including Sir Hans Sloane. Hughes' work, which is divided into ten books, contains many engravings of Caribbean flora and fauna.

Abstract

Journal of a West India Proprietor: Kept During a Residence in the Island of Jamaica was written by Englishman Matthew Gregory Lewis ((9 July 1775 - 16 May 1818) during his first journey to his plantations in Jamaica in 1817. It was not published in London until nearly two decades after in 1834, during the height of the international abolitionist movement. Lewis was a slave-owner who inherited two large plantations, which he would visit twice (this text refers only the first visit). During this trip, he investigates the living and working conditions of the slaves on his plantations. His anecdotal record, the Journal of a West India Proprietor, offers a vivid account of plantation life from the perspective of a 'liberal' slave owner. In addition to this work, he was a novelist, perhaps best known as the author of the popular gothic novel The Monk.

Abstract

First Published in London in 1749, The Royal Prince is supposedly the account of William Ansah Sessarakoo's life. Born into a royal family in Annamaboe (modern-day Ghana), Sessarakoo was sent by his father to be educated in England. During his quest to England, Sessarakoo is kidnapped by the ship's captain and rerouted to Barbados where he is sold into slavery. Eventually, he was discovered by a fellow Annamaboen trader who informed his father of this discovery. His father was able to successfully petition for his freedom, and Sessarakoo was returned home. In the end, Sessarakoo was eventually able to make it to England to receive his education. While it is often presented purely as a narrative of Sessarakoo's life, much of the focus in the text is actually on trade between Europe, Africa, and The Colonies. It also emphasizes significant admiration for English culture.

Abstract

The famous story of Inkle and Yarico first appeared in Richard Ligon’s A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbadoes published in 1657. In this version published in The Spectator in 1711, Richard Steele transforms what had been an allegory about the inconstancy of love, into a story about the horrors engendered by the hyper capitalism of the slave trade. This story was later turned into a very popular comic opera that saw modern revivals in the 20th century.

Abstract

Published in 1820, this medical treatise was written by physician James Thomson, M.D. It describes common diseases found on the island of Jamaica and contains information about the signs, symptoms, and treatments of those diseases. While most of the treatise focuses on medical issues, the treatise also describes the management of slaves. The introductory remarks and the concluding list of medicines suggest that the disease and treatments described by Thomson are not strictly limited to the Caribbean islands.

Abstract

Published in England in 1854, this fictionalized slave narrative set in Trinidad was written by Marcella Wilkins. In the introduction to this novel, Wilkins claims that began writing the book in 1840 but was compelled to complete it after the publication of Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. One of the central themes of the novel is the abolition of slavery.

Abstract

First published anonymously in London in 1827, Hamel, The Obeah Man, is a two-volume gothic novel that tells the story of a failed slave rebellion in early eighteenth century Jamaica. The novel is centered around Hamel, the spiritual leader (and Obeah practitioner) to the enslaved rebels. The novel maintains a pro-slavery stance, however, it has been studied extensively by early Caribbeanists for being one of the earliest attempts in British literature at representing complex interiority of the black enslaved Caribbean subject. Hamel often speaks, expresses his opinion, and shows signs of an internal self--characteristics that are absent from characters in similar texts previous, and contemporary, to this work. This is Vol.1 of 2.

Abstract

The full title of this narrative is A Narrative of Events Since the First of August, 1834, by James Williams, an Apprenticed Labourer in Jamaica. In 1834, the UK sought the gradual abolition of slavery in the West Indies, by instituting a period when the formerly enslaved would be gradually introduced to full freedom, after a six year ‘apprenticeship’ period. After the narrative was published, a Commission of Inquiry gathered evidence of the abuses that were endemic during the apprenticeship period, which was published in pamphlets in 1838.
