520 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.
