  • El caso que analizamos en este artículo tuvo lugar en la primera mitad del siglo XVIII, en un contexto derivado e la firma del Tratado de Utrecht, que puso fin a la guerra de sucesión española, y por el que los ingleses, entre otras cosas, consiguieron el ansiado Asiento de esclavos con las colonias españolas en América y que administraría la South Sea Company. Tomando como referencia cierta documentación concreta del Archivo General de Indias (AGI) de Sevilla, relacionada con la venta de una partida de esclavos de la factoría que la Compañía tenía en Buenos Aires, el objetivo fundamental del trabajo es poner de manifiesto el tratamiento contable que recibía el esclavo, así como el estricto control económico a que eran sometidas las personas encargadas de su venta por parte de la empresa. Control del que se deriva, además, una valiosísima información, no sólo para la Historia de la Contabilidad, sino también para la Historia Económica en general y del comercio de esclavos en particular. The events analyzed in this paper took place in the first part of the 18th century, in the scenario resulting from the signature of the Treaty of Utrecht that put and end to the War of the Spanish Succession. Among other things, in virtue of the series of treaties signed in Utrecht, Spain ceded Gibraltar and Minorca to Great Britain as well as allowed the wished Asiento, the monopoly of slave trading with the Spanish colonies in America that would be managed by the South Sea Company. On the basis of certain documents available in the Archivo General de Indias (General Archive of the Indies) of Seville that relate to the sale of a party of slaves of the factory that the South Sea Company had in Buenos Aires, this paper describes the accounting treatment for slaves, as well as the strict economic control exerted on the persons in charge of their sale on behalf of the Company. The evidence presented provides valuable information, not only for Accounting History, but also for Economic History in general and, for the history of slave trading in particular.
