Summary This is a collection of commentaries by ships' doctors and captains, as well as written testimonies for a parliamentary committee investigating the slave trade. Accounts, varying from sympathetic to indifferent, relate horrifying events and conditions--the holding pens or "factories," living conditions aboard ships, mutinies and their suppression, and more. 54 period engravings and other illustrations accompany the grim record.
