An important publication in the early history of the anti-slavery movement, Ramsay spent nineteen years in the West Indies witnessing the atrocities. His early published works, most notably his 1784 Essay on the Treatment and Conversion of African Slaves, would have a profound effect on Wilberforce and other early abolitionists.

The present abolitionist pamphlet was written in response to the anonymous 1788 anti-abolition pamphlet Considerations on the Emancipation of Negroes and on the Abolition of the Slave-trade ... By a West-India Planter. Scarce.
