Deep brown cloth, with gilt titles on spine. This is the first edition, first issue with page 191 misprinted as '19'. Overall light wear, with light scuffed area on spine; a few closed tears within, some foxing and dampstains; very good. Captain Canot was an adventurer who involved himself in all aspects of the slave trade. This book is a vivid and lurid account of how slavery operated. Canot even manages to blame the European slave trade on Africans because some African groups practiced slavery. Blockson 9289.; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 448 +ads pages View more info
