Letters of the late Ignatius Sancho, an African by Ignatius Sancho( Book )

49 editions published between 1782 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born a slave, Ignatius Sancho (c.1729-80) became one of the most influential free Africans of his century. Largely self-taught, he was the first black Briton known to have voted in parliamentary elections and to be given an obituary in the British press. He corresponded with many notable figures, including the author Laurence Sterne, whom he urged to write against slavery in the West Indies. The politician Joseph Jekyll (1754-1837) commended Sancho's 'epistolary talent' in a brief biography, praising his 'wild patriotism' and 'universal philanthropy'. This two-volume collection of Sancho's letters was published in 1782 by the hostess Frances Crewe (1748-1818), who upheld Sancho as proof, in an age of dehumanising slavery, that Africans possessed as much natural intelligence as Europeans. Volume 2 contains letters for the period 1778-80. Sancho's last letters, betraying his acute suffering from gout, reveal the same warmth of affection and zeal for justice which characterised his life

Born on a slave ship in 1729 after it left the coast of Guinea, Sancho was orphaned when, shortly after arriving in Cartagena, Colombia, his mother died of an illness, and his father committed suicide. His master sent him to England in 1731 as a gift to a family of sisters. He later worked as a butler for the Duke of Montague for twenty years. Published posthumously in 1782, following his death in 1780, and including a brief biographical sketch and list of subscribers, his letters, poems, and plays reflect knowledge he gained through his interactions with this aristocratic family. The letters are generally short, and provide information about his family life, relationships, interests, religious beliefs, and literary preferences
