Beschreibung der Einführung der Sklaverei aus und nach dem Muster der östlichen niederländischen Kolonien nach Südafrika und deren Entwicklung dort.
The first slave reached the Cape in 1653, a year after the first white settler party under Jan van Riebeeck. Slavery was to remain an institution here until the end of the Dutch period in 1795, and well beyond, for it was not until 1834, under British administration, that Cape slaves were finally emancipated.
In Early Slavery at the Cape of Good Hope Schoeman describes the transplanting of slavery from the Dutch colonies in the East and the first sixty years of its development under local conditions, basing his account mainly on contemporary sources and providing as much information on individual slaves and their lives as these allow.
Attention is likewise given to the gradual manumission of slaves and the slow development of a ‘free black’ community at the Cape towards the close of the seventeenth century.
