Anti-slavery Issues in Canada, 1830-1870
A Selective Bibliography


The following is a list of materials held by Library and Archives Canada on the anti-slavery movement in Canada between approximately 1830 and 1870. As the historiography relating to slavery is vast, including thousands of monographs and journal articles dealing with aspects of the issue, the present bibliography is restricted to primary material dating from the period when slavery was being debated and criticized in public discourse. This is not a complete bibliography of the issue or the holdings of this institution but rather reflects some of the many places where such material may be found. Represented are newspaper and periodical articles, travel literature and journals to places where slavery was an ongoing practice, treatises, sermons, reports of anti-slavery institutions, published slavery narratives, other published documents and archival materials. As the anti-slavery movement was international, many of the sources listed here were not created by Canadians, but are evidence of the kinds of ideas with which Canadians of the period engaged. As these were documents created in the 1830s to 1870s, the language of their titles and content reflect their historical context.
