Un Anglais de la Barbade vend sa maitresse
"An Englishman from Barbados Sells his Mistress" (caption translation). Image is based on one version or another of the story of Yarico, an Amerindian woman, and her lover, Inkle, an English sailor who allegedly duped her and sold her into slavery in Barbados. Guillaume Thomas Raynal (1713–1796) was a French writer during the Age of Enlightenment. He briefly discussed this story in his text, without naming the principals. For details, see Jerome S. Handler, A Guide to Source Materials for the Study of Barbados History, 1627-1834 (Southern Illinois Univ. Press, 1971), p.21. Compare this image with the lower right hand corner of image reference NMM-2.
