Print - Oroonoko: or the Royal Slave; Death is security for all our fears

Oroonoko: or the Royal Slave (Print) by Smith, A. Print, illustration to the 1695 stage adaptation of Aphra Behn's 'Oroonoko: or the Royal Slave'.

African slaves were very expensive (50 Sterling).  Irish slaves were cheap (no more than 5 Sterling) and most often were either kidnapped from Ireland,  or forcibly removed.  They could be worked to death, whipped or branded without it being a crime.  Many times they were beat to death and while the death of an Irish slave was a monetary setback, it was far cheaper than the death of an expensive African.  African slaves were treated much better in Colonial America.
