Cuba, 1834. Folio. Single sheet. Minor worming, offsetting. Very good.
A very intriguing document, bearing official stamps, documenting the sale or liberation of various slaves in 1834/35. The slaves are described by name. 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 piece showing the persistent nature of Cuban slave culture in the early 19th century.
