    Description

    African Americana: Slave Price List. Manuscript "List of Negroes which I have for Sale", written on the first page and part of the second page of 8" x 10" bifolium lined paper. The slaves are listed by family unit, along with their age, relation to one another and asking price. Some pencil prices are added to the right of the ink prices. The owner, J. S. Jessup, has written at the bottom: "I have fourteen other negroes in Todd county, nine of whom are men & boys (two men) but they have intermarried with negroes on my brothers farm, and I cannot separately them immediately." (inferring, of course, that separation was a long-term option). Undated. Some minor loss/separation at folds. Rather chilling.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
