Slavery, Abolition and Social Justice, 1490-2007

Resource Type: 

This project provides access to many thousands of original manuscripts, pamphlets, books, paintings, maps and images.  Most are reproduced as high quality greyscale images, but there are also a significant number of colour images.  All printed items are full text searchable and manuscripts have document level indexing.  All documents have distinct URLs and can be embedded in course notes and reading lists or downloaded as PDFs.

This extraordinary resource on trans-Atlantic slavery and abolition brings together original manuscript and rare printed material from dozens of libraries and archives across the Atlantic world.
