These papers detail the commercial, political, and personal lives of the Martin family of Antigua and Berkshire from the mid-eighteenth through the late nineteenth centuries. The volumes included in this microform edition are the letter-books of Samuel Martin (1694/5-1776), planter of Antigua, and related documents (British Library Add. Mss. 41346-51 & 41353). As one of the largest and widest-ranging surviving collections of West Indian planter family papers, the letter-books of Samuel Martin constitute an important source for the study of eighteenth-century West Indian planters, and of the island societies which they shaped and were shaped by at the height of the era of sugar and slavery. As such, they offer an unparalleled picture of social and economic life in one of Britain's most important plantation colonies at the time of its greatest prosperity, and offer the historian an outstanding opportunity to understand both the day-to-day management of a successful sugar plantation and the patterns of life in a mature plantation society.
