About This Item

Soft cover. Near Fine. 8vo. Original self cover, stitched. Printed for James Ridgway, London 1814. First Edition. William, Lord Grenville was Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1806-07. During his ministry the two most influential Acts in the history of slavery abolition were passed: the Foreign Slave Trade Act (1806), which prohibited the importation of slaves into British colonies by British subjects, and the Slave Trade Abolition Act (1807). Describing slavery as contrary to the principles of justice, humanity and sound policy, Grenville remained concerned with any apparent resurgence of the slave trade during his years in the House or Lords. Lord Darnleys copy, signed by him on the front cover. It was Darnley who called for an inquiry into the actions of Grenville and his cabinet following the collapse of his Ministry in the wake of the royal rejection of Catholic emancipation. Some slight wear, o/w Fine.
