Editorial Review
Sometimes published as *Adventures of an African Slaver,* this replica of the 1854 first edition restores its original title. All of its unique power remains intact. Adapted from the journals, memoranda, and conversations of French-Italian seafarer and notorious slaver CAPTAIN THEODORE CANOT (1804-1860), this vivid and unexaggerated depiction of the slave trade between Africa and the New World is prized as a firsthand account of every aspect of the industry, from how slaves are purchased to the first reactions of newly arrived slaves to the New World and beyond. Explicit and shocking, this volume is also a startling illustration of the racist attitudes of its day, from Canot's justifications for the slave trade to the introduction by American journalist BRANTZ MAYER (1809-1879), who compiled Canot's material for publication and defended his subject's work. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of American slavery.
