[SIX MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS DETAILING THE BILL OF SALE OR LIBERATION OF SLAVES IN CUBA]
by [Cuba]: [Slavery]
Cuba, 1872.  leaves. Folio. Single sheets. Minor worming, offsetting. Very good. A group of interesting documents, all bearing official stamps, documenting the sale or liberation of various slaves from 1842-72. The slaves are described by name, age, and as either "negro," "mulato," or "criolla." Though Cuba ended its participation in the slave trade in 1867, it was not until 1886 that slavery was finally abolished by royal decree. An interesting collection showing the persistent nature of Cuban slave culture in the latter half of the 19th century.
