Slavery, Abolition and Social Justice 1490-2007

Description 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. Published in three sections between 2007 and 2009, this collection will prove invaluable for postgraduate and scholarly research and will also provide a user-friendly classroom tool for undergraduates.
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.
