One of the best, earliest accounts of American slave trade

 

Joseph Hawkins was an 18th-century American ship officer who is primarily known for leading expeditions to Africa to capture slaves for trading. ‘History of a Voyage to the Coast of Africa’ is a primary, first-hand account of the strategies and implementations of a slave runner in colonial America. Hawkins wrote this book to provide details of his adventures to a friend; however, the work would explode with popularity – both positive and negative – throughout American and Great Britain.

 

This 1797 second edition was published in Troy, New York, includes fascinating stories and anecdotes of daring slave escapes, shipwrecks, and the relationship of Americans with the leaders of the Igbo nation in West Africa. This book is also one of the best and most authoritative sources on the Igbo people, their customs and culture, and the warfare they engaged in with other African tribes.
