The history of the rise, progress, and accomplishment of the abolition of the African Slave-trade by the British Parliament by Thomas Clarkson( Book )

1 edition published in 1808 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Clarkson (1760-1846) was a leading campaigner against slavery and the African slave trade. After graduating from St. John's College, Cambridge in 1783, Clarkson with Granville Sharp (1735-1813) founded the Committee for the Abolition of the African Slave Trade in 1787, which increased popular support for abolition and was the main campaigner behind the abolition of the slave trade. These volumes, first published in 1808, contain a unique contemporary account of the abolition movement from one of its major leaders. Clarkson describes in great detail the Quaker background to the abolitionist movement and the parliamentary debates leading to the Slave Trade Act of 1807. The contemporary arguments both in support and in opposition to abolition and the researches and actions of the abolition movement's members are described, creating an important historical record of the movement. Volume 1 contains the early history of the abolition movement until July 1788

Adeline Mowbray, or, The mother and daughter by Amelia Opie( Book )

2 editions published in 1805 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Adeline Mowbray puts her mother Editha's radical theories into practice by eloping with, but not marrying, a notorious writer, the mother and daughter are estranged for many years, but finally reconciled. As its subtitle suggests, Adeline Mowbray, or The Mother and Daughter begins and ends with their story, but its complex plot encompasses almost every other human relationship. This engaging novel explores many issues important in the Romantic period, from women's education to the ethics of slavery and colonialism. This Broadview Edition uses the first edition of 1805 as its copy text, but also includes important variants from the 1810 and 1844 editions. The appendices include contemporary reviews and material expanding on the novel's themes of women's education, marriage, slavery, and the tension between feeling and reason."--Publisher's website
