Slave Documents

Cuba: Patronato de Mananzas et al, 1880-1886. First edition. Cuba abolished slavery by royal decree October 7, 1886. These documents relate to incidents involving individual slaves still working during the transition period prior to full emancipation in 1886. "Patronato documents," twelve in total provide details on individual slaves and group notifications. The slaves were usually termed “Morenos/Morenas.” The official notifications were sent to their owners to inform them of the ensuing legislation terminating the practice. All documents approximately, 21 x 16.6 cm. are dated approximately some years prior the legal abolition are in original wrappers, hand written, some browning, all in good to very good condition. One can conjure the interminable bureaucratic effort of preparation, documentation and dissemination of these hand written documents. 1. Patronato de Mananzas.
