American Slavery Manuscript Collection
A small accumulation of unrelated manuscripts with a bearing on North American slavery. Many of the documents gathered in this collection are either slave bills of sale or estate inventories that include slaves. Seven are from Kentucky, including several from Madison County. The collection also includes several personal letters and a sample of the Arabic hand of Abd al-Rahman Ibrahima, a freed slave who achieved a measure of fame during a tour of the Northeast in 1828.
