Anna Maria Falconbridge’s Narrative of Two Voyages, consisting of fourteen letters to a friend about her experiences, is the first published Englishwoman’s narrative of a visit to West Africa. Alexander Falconbridge’s Account of the Slave Trade describes the horrific conditions he had witnessed in West Africa. Published in 1788 by the London Committee for the Abolition of the Slave Trade, it was the first piece of published abolitionist propaganda.
