Biographical or historical data
First Leeds edition, preface by Reverend Walter Shirley. Originally published at Bath in 1772 and at subsequent other locations and editions, this was the first slave narrative published in the English language. Gronniosaw (also known as James Albert) was probably from Bornu, now in northeastern Nigeria. He was captured and sold to a minister in New York. After the minister died he enlisted as a cook with a privateer, and later as a soldier in the British army, until he finally settled in England. He died in 1775.
