Illustrations are chiefly printed on translucent leaves.
Three of the images are taken from "Description of a Slave ship," a four page pamphlet consisting of text describing the appalling conditions endured by enslaved Africans during the Middle Passage. The engraving is purportedly of the "Brookes," a slave ship built in Liverpool in 1781 that routinely sailed between Liverpool, Fort William at Anamabou in present day Ghana, and Kingston, Jamaica. Cf. Art and emancipation in Jamaica: Isaac Mendes Belisario and his worlds.
