Jane Bradley and Dawn Dyer kindly complied a selection of books, posters and newspapers from the Reference Library’s collection charting both the slave trade and its abolition. These included an early edition of Equiano’s An Interesting Narrative, election posters from 1832 (for and against the continuation of slavery) and adverts in newspapers offering rewards for runaway slaves.
