Image Reference

Isabelle Aguet, A Pictorial History of the Slave Trade (Geneva, Editions Minerva, 1971), plate 64, p.71; original source not identified.

Africans and Europeans fighting with weapons on top deck. The same image (captioned "révolte sur un batiment négrier"), but slightly cropped, is in Albert Laporte, Recits du Vieux Marins (Paris, 1883), p. 267--suggesting that LaPorte is not the original source for the image in Aquet (see image LCP-13 on this website).
