BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: IRISH UNIVERSITY PRESS: SLAVE TRADE
95 volumes large folio. * PHOTOGRAPHS & FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. The material relating to the slave trade falls into three general categories: major reports from Select Committees, classified correspondence from British Commissioners, agents and Foreign Powers (including reports from naval officers) and, finally, general reports, correspondence and papers. The subject list which follows contains all the papers relating specifically to slavery and the slave trade in each of these categories in the order given, published chronologically. Volume 8, consisting of Instructions issued to Naval Officers engaged in the suppression of the slave trade, an important policy record, is the exception to this arrangement. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of these papers overcame this by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in the publisher's original half green morocco leather with the exception of 22 volumes which are bound in the publisher's matching green buckram. They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear and have the great advantage over the original printings because on a strong laid acid free paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has neat library stamp on front endpaper and verso title, otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. (Book ref. 20094)   £4500.00
