Notes: from Book ID # 2238 "Relations de plusieurs voyages a la cote d'Afrique, a Maroc, au Sénégal, a Gorée, a Galam, etc. Avec des détails intéressans pour ceux qui se destinent à la Traite des Nègres, de l'Or, de l'Ivoire, etc." A primary source of African history and the Slave Trade. The text includes accounts of the shipwreck of both authors and their subsequent experiences as captives of Arab slavers. Saugnier was shipwrecked on January 17, 1784 near Cape Leven, and Brisson in July 1785 at Cape Blanco, both in the Spanish zone of Rio del Oro.; A fascinating account of shipwreck and slavery from a first hand account including details on the economic aspects of slavery.
