Abstract:The 'Windward Coast' between Cape Maunt and Assini (modern Liberia and Ivory Coast) is credited by Curtin (CURTIN, Philip D., 'The Atlantic slave trade: a census' (Madison, 1969'' with the export of very large numbers of slaves in the late 17th century and most of the 18th, but with hardly any in the 19th. It is suggested here that the actual figures for the earlier period are much lower, manv of those slaves attributed to this strech of coast in the English trade having come from the region Curtin calls 'Sierra Leone' while a large proportion of those carried in French ships came from the Gold Coast or beyond.
