[Slavery]. Der Sclavenhandel. La vente d'Esclaves.

No place, ca 1800.

270 x 400 mm. Aquatint in contemporary hand colour, engraved by "J. L. T." after "J. R. P."


Three partly exposed women before a large tent, being advertised and inspected by several men dressed in fine oriental garb. On the left is another woman whose price is under discussion, while the background shows date palms and two dromedaries.

Rather severely stained with waterstains and a few small holes in the blank margin; some scuff marks in the image; trimmed closely with loss to lower left corner. A very appealing print in unsophisticated condition. Rare.
