The collection of books described in the following pages is, 
beyond all question, the most extensive in its special department 
ever offered for sale. Its acquisition has been the unwearied occu- 
pation of Mr. Field for many years, and the result is an unusually 
complete series of books, on a subject which is daily increasing in 
its interest — the American Indians. It is scarcely necessary for 
us to say, that it is simply impossible to study the history of this 
continent without reference to this topic. An entirely complete 
collection of books relative to the Indians, includes a large propor- 
tion of the works which compose American history. 

In the preface to his " Essay on Indian Bibliography," Mr. Field 
remarks : 

" A general catalogue of works illustrative of the history, litera- 
ture, and archaeology of the Aborigines of both Americas, had 
been in progress of composition for several years, as a guide to the 
author's collea^on of that class of books. As it grew in propor- 
tions, by the slow accretions which study and experience furnished, 
the author's vanity was easily flattered into the design of producing 
a work of more general utility. The material collected at length 
covered so wide a range, that it embraced not only transcripts of 
the titles of such printed works as were personally ej^amined, or 
were to be found in catalogues of public and private libraries, with 
a Qollation of their pages, and synopsis of their contents, but also 
the titles of articles upon the same subjects, printed in reviews, 
historical collections, magazines, and other ephemera. More than 
two thousand five hundred separate works, and twelve hundred 
essays, had been catalogued, with their topical range noted, before 
the vast extent of the unexplored territory to be examined, began 
to exhibit some of its formidable proportions. It was plainly 
demonstrated, that the projected task must be either abandoned or 


greatly abridged. That portion of the task which could be most 
readily detached and wrought into unity, was the catalogue of works 
on the American Aborigines, in t> +^ior's possession. To 
determine the selection of work! .xd be included in that 

category, they have been subjecte\^ tO a few simple rules of classi- 

" All works which purported in their titles to contain historic, 
narrative, or literary material, relating to the American Indians. 

" Books in which any distinct portion, chapter, or appendix 
claimed by its heading, or table of contents, to be devoted to that 

" Works containing engravings, illustrative of the manners of 
of the aborigines, when derived from actual observation. 

" All treatises, or essays, upon their origin, or the pre-Columbian 
discovery of America, as affecting the source of its population. 

" Those works of fiction or poetry founded on Indian life, to which 
were appended historical notes, incidents of personal experience, or 
traditions and legends, of the Indians. 

" All works containing grammatical analyses, or vocabularies of 
their language, as well as translations, into or from them, would of 
course form a part of the collection." 

How far Mr. Field has succeeded in filling out the lines thus 
indicated, this catalogue will afford evidence. In some departments 
he has been specially fortunate. It is not too much to say that his 
collection of public documents is unapproachable»^. The Indian 
Department at Washington has not succeeded in ^Wcuring many 
which are to be found in this library. Not the least important are 
the many pamphlets, some of only a few pages, and apparently of 
little worth, are of great rarity — and they are rare, partly because 
of their size, or rather want of size. For in many respects books 
are like people, the big ones take care of themselves, the little 
ones get lost, strayed or destroyed. We bespeak for the little ones 
in this Library that consideration which they undoubtedly deserve. 
On another page we have given a list of Desiderata including 
books which have a special individual value. 

Another and a very important feature of this library is the 
large collection of the publications of Historical Societies, many of 
which have not been included in iMr. Field's Essay, because their 
primary subject was not Indian. They are none the Ics^ valuable 

on that account, and indeed to the collector in general have per- 
haps" a greater interest for they iaclude histories of all the States, 
Kevolutionary History, War of 1812, etc. 

Mr. Field's " Essay on Indian Bibliography" has formed the basis 
of the present catalogue. We have added to it the titles of such books 
as have been purchased since the publication of that work in 1873. 
To the works thus added the notes appended are sometimes by Mr. 
Field. Many works of importance, which were in his possession at 
the time of its publication had accidentally dropped out of his list. 
Lord Kingsborough's Mexico is a case in point ; and now that we are 
on the subject of omissions we may remark that by an accident, which 
it is not worth while to explain, a portion of the copy for this catalogue 
was also lost. This circumstance has contributed to the necessity of 
an Addenda. For the same reason " Bry" has been necessarily 
carried on to De Bry and even then it forms a star lot, a dignity which 
it deserves, for it is undoubtedly the finest set of books in the sale. 

The Titles in Mr. Field's Essay have sometimes been abridged, 
sometimes given in full, his elaborate and eloquent notes have in 
many instances been shorn of their chief features, but the reader 
can supply that want by procuring a copy of Mr. Field's Essay.* 

Where no description of the binding is given it is to be under- 
stood that the book is in ordinary condition. Many of the books 
have been bound by W. Mathews, J. M. Bradstreet, & Sons, and 
are good specimens of their work. 

Let us hope that the financial result of the sale of the collection 
will not be a Severe loss to the owner, for it must be admitted that 
the tolerable certainty of getting your money back is not a bad in- 
centive to the collector of books, or indeed of any other article of 
taste or vertu.

New York, April 15, 1875. 

*The reader of the Essay will not fail to notice the strong humanitarian 
views which are held by Mr. Field. It would be difficult for any one to add 
to the energetic adjectives which distinguish some of his denunciations 
of the perpetrators of cruelties on the Indians.

Natural History of the New World, in two books, and of the Pro- 
mulgtation of the Gospel among the Savages ; with the method of secur- 
ing the salvation of the Indians. 

An entirely distinct work from the Historia Natural printed at Seville 


in 1590, and translated into almost every language of Europe. Books 
one and two were subsequently enlarged to the Natural History, but at 
page 99 the title " De Procuranda Salvte Indorum" announces another 
work which has never been printed in English. All the remainder of 
the volume is devoted to a description of the methods by which the In- 
dians of the New World were to be brought into the dominion of the 
Christian Church.

His work has been justly esteemed for its intrinsic merit, indubitable 
evidence of which is found in the fact that it has been translated into al- 
most every language of Europe having a literature. Pp. 327 to 590, are 
entirely devoted to a relation of the history, customs and warres of the 
Indians. Although one of the earliest, he was one of the most curious 
and accurate observers of the customs and peculiarities of the Aborigines. 
Scarcely a trait which has excited the attention of the historian or the 
narrator in the three centuries which have elapsed, has escaped his 
observation and description. Perfect copies of the English edition are 
quite rare. 

9 AcoSTA. Historie Naturael ende ^lorael van de Westerishe

This Dutch Translation was made by Linschoten, from the Seville 
Edition of 1591, and forms the basis of the version in De Bry's Col- 
lection. — See Sabin's Dictionary.

Notes and Maps. 2 Maps. 8°, calf. London, 1698 

Chapters xxvi. to xliii. of Acugna's Relation, and almost all of Griilet 
and Bechamel are devoted to descriptions of the Indian tribes they 
encountered. Their naratives possess a greater interest from being made 
by the first Europeans who traversed tliese regions, and penetrated to 
the territories of the Indian nations, the Arragoues and Nouragones.

, By James Adair, ...A Trader with the Indians, and Resident of 

j their Country for Forty Years. Map. 4°, sheep. London, 1775 

Although it cannot be claimed for this author that he ranked first in 
priority of time, his name is first on our alphabetical register ot a great 
number of writers whose imaginations have been struck by the aston- 
ishing coincidenee of many particulars of the customs and religious rites 
of some of the American Nations with those of the Jews. The relations 
of an intelligent observer (as this Indian trader seems to have been), for 
so long a period as forty years, of the peculiarities of the Southern In- 
dians, among whom he resided for that period, is not without great 
value ; although we should have reason to hold it in still greater es- 
teem, had the author cherished no favorite dogma to establish, or detested 
any which he wished to destroy.

is not cited in Sabin's Dictionary. The first two books are occupied with

Botturino, in his Gatalogo del Musey Indio, places the Vocahulario

The relations of his three voyages to the coast of America by the emi-

tion regarding the Indians of New York, and of the Esquimaux of Lab- 
rador. The editor asserts what we do not recollect to have seen else-

A Description of the Antiquities discovered in the Western Country ; 
originally communicated to the American Antiquarian Society. And 
" Remarks made on a Tour to Prairie Du Chien ; thence to Washington 
City in 1829." 

The zeal and industry of the author, stimulated by a thirst for the ac- 
quisition of knowledge regarding the mysterious people of whom these 
were the relics, have produced a work not much less valuable, because 
the author had little scientific training, to teach him for what to search. 
U^ X'^ ^^ Atwater (C). Remarks made on a Tour to Prairie du Chien ; 
thence to Washington City, in 1829. By Caleb Atwater, late 
Commissioner employed by the United States to negotiate with 
the Indians of the Upper Mississippi, for ihe purchase of Mine- 
ral Country ...12°, sheep. Columbus, 1831 

Some very curious particulars relating to Customs of the Winneba- 
goes are related by Atwater. Although nothing indicating the mission 
^ of Atwater appears on the title, yet the real object of his tour was to 

yu'ocure as commissioner of the government, a cession of the title of the 
Winnebago, Pottawatomie, Chippewa, and Ottawa Indians, in the rich 
mineral lands, now forming the Siate of Wisconsin and part of Illinois. 

Much the greater part of the work is devoted therefore to a narration 
of the peculiarities of those tribes which he visited, biography of some 
of their chiefs, Indian poetry, specimens of their language, and' incidents 
of his associations with them. 

On pages 149 to 172 the author has given " Rudiments of the Gram- 
mar of the Sioux Language," all of which is omitted in the edition of 
1833. On pp. 75 to 85 he offers an analysis of the Winnebagoes dialect, 
as amplifying some theories regarding the origin of the Chippewa tribes.

The author received the appointment of Colonel of Engineers in 1780,

the boundary between the Spanish possessions in Paraguay and the Por-

he, as well as Captain Franklin, was obliged to depend in great measure 
for subsistence during the terrible privations of an Arctic winter. No 
intelligent comprehension of the character of the savage tribes of the 
frozen regions of North America can be obtained without reading the 
narratives of Captains Franklin and Back ; both of whose Journals of 
their overland expeditions are largely occupied with descriptions of In- 
dian life and peculiarities.

son in Hudson's Bay on the nortliern extremity of America. Tlie first 
establishment of the French in this vast country, the capture of the 
said Fort Nelson, Description of the River St. Lawrence, the Govern- 
ment of Quebec, of the Three Rivers and of Montreal from 1534 to 1701, 
is very imperfectly described in the title to the first volume. Each one 
of the four composing it has a distinct title, as much descriptive of a 
different purpose as a separate work. Vol. II contains a " History of the 
Native Allies of New France, their Religion, and their interests with all 
the Hurons and the Illinois. Vol. Ill, " History of the Iriquois." Vol. 
IV, " History of the Abnaquis Indians, the general Peace in all North 
America, under the government of the Count Frontenac and the Cheva- 
lier de Callieres, during which the Indian Nations residing six hundred 
leagues from Quebec assembled at Montreal." Indeed it is a complete 
history of the Indian nations of Canada. Much of this work is written 
from his own observation, and the remainder seems to have been derived 
from authentic sources.

An essay on the Indian and Dutch names of New York, first printed

ous style of the work, excited the criticism of the directors of the So- 
ciety, who required some verbal changes before publication, which the 
author's pride induced him to reject with indignation. A controversy 
arose of much acrimony, and Mr. Benson determined to vindicate his 
style by printing his essay. He does not, however, seem to have been 
entirely satisfied with it himself, as several copies exist with numerous 
manuscript additions and corrections. The second edition printed in 
Jamaica includes some of these, and is quite difiicult to procure. The 
Society in 1848, after the death of the author, printed the address, in

This rare book is the work of an old Italian traveller who, incited by 
the wonderful stories of the world discovered by his countryman fifty 
years before, adventured in 1.541 to gain personal knowledge of it. 
The Aborigines of the countries he visited always seemed first to at- 
tract his attention ; and he has accordingly afforded us some of the 
rarest pictures of their condition and habits at that early day, of which 
the rude wood-cuts printed in the text are cjuaint but spirited illustra- 
tions. It is the first book of Travels of wliich America has been so 
fruitful, as Benzoni seems to have been the first wlio travelled merely 
to gratify his curiosity and recorded his observations.

The narrative of Giralamo Benzoni is one of the most interesting of 
all the early travellers in America, not only for the minute details of 
the life and habits of the Aborigines more than three centuries ago, 
but for the evident fidelity to truth, and the consequent reliance we 
may feel that we are viewing the common life of the natives before 
what we term civilization had corrupted them. Eighteen facsimiles 
of the curious wood-cuts of the period are inserted in the text, most 
of which are illustrative of some phases in the customs of the Indians.

Biography of Illustrious Indian Chiefs of North America, preceded 
by an Index of the Mythical History of that Continent. This work 
attempts something more than biographical sketches of famous Indi-

frame in which to hang his portraits of them. It is a very good com- 
pilation of the quite well known facts of aboriginal history, and, al- 
though containing little that is not already stored in the common 
stock of knowledge, it does not include much, if anything, of his own 
composition which is fallacious or speculative.

This is a very careful consideration of the tenure by which the 
United States acquired a title to the lands once occupied or claimed

manner, the complex rights of the savage and the civilized claimants ; 
more especially of those by which the State of New York assumes pro-

Mr. Bollaert is the author of several treatises on ethnological subjects,

of Incarial (jrandeurin Peru, and,, besides the facts obtained during his 
tours in that country, his book is a cyclopedia of the records of South

the ornaments, utensils, buildings, or idols of the natives.

[Letter to M. Leon de Rosuy on the discovery of documents relative 
to the ancient period of America, and on the deciphering and transla- 
tion of the phonetic and figurative writing of the Mayas. By Bras- 
seur de Bourbourg.] It is very difficult to assign the plact which this 
extraordinary man will occupy in the annals of science, for his works 
are to-day nearly as great mysteries as the hieroglyphs his labors have 
illustrated. His industry in his researches into the history of the Az- 
tec races is something not less than marvellous. Following his voca- 
tion as a priest and missionary, his literary appetite could only be 
allayed by writing a history of Canada, and perhaps the most unfortu- 
nate event for his fame which could possibly have happened was that 
it was printed. It did not escape the notice of historical students that 
the Abbe had accepted so much which was apocryphal, that'his history 
was little better than a romance. When, therefore, he had, with he- 
roic sacrifice of all personal ease, accepted the life of self immolation of 
a missionary to the Indians of Mexico ; had studied for years the relics 
of Aztec picture-writing ; had learned and systematized in great trea- 
tises their modern dialects ; the immense works which he then printed 
upon the history of the pre-Cortesian races, made scarcely a ripple on 
the quiet of the scientific world. He stands alone in the vast temple 
of learning which he has restored, if he did not erect. No human be- 
ing can contest his solution of Aztec pictographs, nor does there exist 
one who can prove it to be true. His numerous volumes have at least 
this merit — they have done much to perpetuate the memory of a won- 
derful race.

Is one of the most thoughtful and philosophical of all the mere 
speculative treatises on the American Aborigines. From the incompe- 
tency of their languages to express abstract ideas, he determines that 
they could never have originated or entertained any ideas of a purely 
spiritual Deity, and that in consequence, they must have derived all the 
notions they possess of a Great Spirit from European sources, subse- 
quent to the Columbian discovery.

The object announced by the author, as the province of this vs^ork, 
is the tracing of the ancient course of empire and migration of this 
interesting tribe. Though now dwindled to the small number of two 
thousand souls, it is probable, from linguistic and social characteristics, 
that they are the representatives of a once great people, affiliating 
with now distant nations.

Notwithstanding the air of mocking raillery with which this author 
envelopes most of the scenes he describes, his work has one great value, 
as it is a truthful portraiture of the terrors which attend border life in 
Arizona, where one twentieth part of the population had been swept 
away by the incursions of the Apaches in three years.

" Une troisieme partie de ces lettres n'a point ete traduite." — Biog. 
Univ. The author, an Italian nobleman, of extensive reading, but 
without the personal experience acquired by travel, undertook the de- 
fence of the true Americans, against the aspersions of De Pauw. The 
Count meets all of the indictments of De Pauw in detail by comparing 
the Aborigines, the animals, the natural divisions of land and water, 
the forests and plants and fruits, with the corresponding Inhabitants 
and objects of nature of the Eastern hemisphere. While De Pauw 
charges the Mexicans and Peruvians with ferocity and barbarism of 
manners, particularly in the human sacrifices of the former, the 
learned Count, calls his attention to the sanguinary worship of the 
Greeks and Scythians. He recalls to the memory of the author of 
Mecherches des PhilosopJiiqtie, the learning and science of the Peruvi- 
ans and Mexicans as exhibited by their knowledge of Astronomy. 
When De Pauw recites from Herrera that the caciques of some Indian 
nations deflowered all the virgins of their tribes before permitting them 
to marry, the Count reminds him of the primal noctes of the French 
seignieurs, and the Romans. Where the first charges the Indians 
with Phallic worship, Carli, recalls the obscene rites of Isis, and Ceres. 
He finds evidences of the ceremonies of baptism, circumcision and 
communion of bread and wine ; but he accounts for the prevalence of 
these customs by reviving the absurd theory of the subsidence of the 
land once filling the ocean between Africa and America, whose fancied 
inhabitants were styled the Atlantides. The translation into French 
was made by M. Lefebure de Villebrune.

This relation of Cartier's first voyage, was preserved solely by Ea-

that the French publisher of the second edition, found himself com-

changed to Discours du Voyag'e fait par le Capitaine Jacques Cartier

Cartier which has come down to us in the original French, and so com- 
pletely unknown had it remained until recently, that Ternaux Corn-

three MSS. preserved in the Bibliotheque Imperiale. The fragments 
of his third voyage were only preserved by Hakluyt's transcripts.

these engravings.

allows the figures to be distinct and life like ; no one was ever better 
fitted by experience and facility of power to secure upon the canvas all 
that would interest us in aboriginal life.

[Voyages made in New France called Canada, by the Sieur Cliani- 
plain, Captain of the Marine for the King, and (Accounts) of all the 
discoveries which he made in that Country from 1603 to 1629, in which 
it will be seen that this Country was first discovered by the French, 
etc. Together with a Map, and a Catechism or Book of Instruction, 
translated from the French into the language of the Sauvages, the 
people of that Country, with a Narration of all which transpired in 
New France to the year 1631.] An imperfect fac simile of the large 
map made for Mr. Tross is usually substituted for the rare original. 
This is the only complete edition of Champlain's Voyages. The first 
part of the volume is an almost literal reproduction of all the other 
voyages, excepting some minuter relations of the same events in the 
edition of 1613, with most of the plates printed in the text, instead of on 
separate sheets. The second part is wholly new matter ; being a rela- 
tion of what transpired in New France from 1619, the date of his latest 
work, to 1633. The great map is also printed here for the first time.

[General History and Description of New France, with the Historical 
Journal of a Tour made by order of the King in North America.] 
The extraordinary man who was the author of these volumes left no 
subject relating to the history of the affairs of his wonderful order in 
America untouched, and as the missions of the Company of Jesus 
among the Indians were the principal purpose of the fathers in both 
of the Americas, the cvulosity of Charlevoix permeated every access- 
ible square mile of their surface to learn the habits, the customs, and 
the secrets of the life of the strange people his brethren sought to sub- 
due to the influence of the cross. Father Charlevoix accomplished 
results in his investigations which seem marvelous to us in the vast 
accumulation of facts which his pen has illustrated. Of his numerous 
works, the Nouvelle France is the greatest achievement. Concerning 
the various editions see Sabin's Dictionary, No. 13135.

The author's name was ^ Barton. The sanguinary wretches of 

Pennsylvania, who have been pilloried before the world under the title of 
" Paxton-Men," thought it necessary to print their defense against the 
charges of monstrous cruelty and cowardice, made by Franklin in his 
Massacres of Indians at Lancaster. These fastidious murderers 
slaughtered a number of inoffensive Christian Indians, out of revenge 
for the outrages committed by their savage brethren, whom these cow- 
ardly frontiersmen feared to encounter. This tract is their attempted 
exculpation, but it has hitherto only monumented their own infamy.

The first and fifth relations of his conquests by Cortes, were not

printed in any language until 1844, when they appeared in the collec- 
tion of Navarette. The second third and fourth letters had been trans- 
lated by Ned Folsom and printed i ; 1843. This Relacion in common 
with all of the Conquiscador's narratives is filled with the incidents of 
his battle with the Indians, descriptions of their towns and principal 
chiefs, and the minutest details of their peculiarities, for which he well 
knew the appetite of the Emperor was insatiable.

in the narrative of the captivity of Le Raye. His Journal of personal 
experience among the fierce Sioux has much more than the usual mo- 
dicum of real merit, to which such relations are entitled, as it is the 
result of the observations, regarding the habits of this nomad nation, 
of a man of some intelligence. Le Raye's Journal was never published 
in any other form. Plates include the earliest engraving of Cincinnati.

our interest in its progress.

This splendid Series of Voyages is the grand piece de resistance of 
this Library. It was purchased by the editor of this Catalogue at the 
Sale of tlie Library of the late Baron de Sobolewski of Moscow, Russia, 
in 1873. Since that period Mr. Field has supplied some of the defi- 
ciencies in the set and now it lacks only two leaves of letter press in part 
xiii. to be absolutely perfect. Mr. Field has also supplied many plates 
in duplicate in addition to those already provided by the industry of 
M. de Sobolewski, and the set now offered is altogether the finest ever 
sold in the United States. Some of our readers may not be aware of 
the fact that M. de Sobolewski had made the completion of DeBry's 
Voyages the main bibliographical feature of a long life devoted to such 
pursuits. M. Brunet in his " Manuel du Librarie " pays special com- 
pliments to this distinguished savant and many American collectors 
can readily attest to the difficulty of gathering these voyages the pub- 
lication of which occupied nearly fifty years. — Father, son, grandson 
having successively undertaken their publication, and concerning this 
thirteenth part we are able to say that a very eminent, enthusiastic 
and determined book collector in Brooklyn has for over twenty-five 
years been vainly seeking to secure this thirteenth part which is in- 
cluded in this collection. We may add that this series is entirely com- 
posed of the first editions in which the plates are the most brilliant, 
and for the information of the buyer we translate from M. de Sobo- 
lewski's Catalogue the description of the various volumes which com- 
prise this set, and we add a graphic account of the series from the pen 
of Mr. Henry Stevens of London, whose acquaintance with DeBry, is 
perhaps only equalled by that of one other gentleman, whose extensive 
collections in this department are unrivalled, we refer to Mr. James 
Lenox of this city. If further information is sought we refer to Sabin's 
Dictionary Vol. iii. 

Messrs. Liste and Francke who sold M. Sobolewski's Library thus 
describe the set : 

Part I. 1590. The first edition, as described by Brunet, with all 
the plates, and besides plates iii, iv, v, vi, vii, viii, ix and xxii in 

duplicate with the diflferences cited by Brunet. "The Eleuch us re- 
printed by DeBure iu 10 leaves is added. 

Part ir. 1591. The subscription will be found printed on a separate 
leaf, which is placed at the end of the 43 plates. At the end are added 
four leaves from the second edition, presenting some variations. 

Part III. 1592. The engraved title of the 2d edition with the name 
of J. de Bry substituted for that of Feyrabriid. The plate of the seven 
shields is without the virtues. The engraved frontispiece " Navigatia 
in Brasilian " of the second edition with the name of J. DeBry. Page 
114 with the plate of Adam and Eve. In other particulars correspond- 
ing to Brunei's description. iSorae of the engravings spotted. 

Part rv. 1594. The title in duplicate, with variations with and 
without privilege. A double set of the 24 plates, which although they 
have figures on the plates are of the ffrst edition, as may be seen by 
the explanation below. 

Partv. 1595. Texte 72 pages which according to Brune, is a part of the 
second edition, but according to Camus and Debure Ijelongs to the 

Parts VI. 1596. The frontispiece which precedes the engravings has 
the title plate bearing the words : Sequunter Icones, etc." According 
to Brunet. 

Parts VII and VIII. 1599. According to Brunet. Pages 77, 78, of the 
first half of the 8th part in duplicate, with and without the map. 

Part IX. 1602. According to Brunet. 

Part X. 1619. To the map of the Phillipines by de Bry there has 
been added the original map from which it has been copied. It is taken 
from the Mirrour de Spilberg. 

Part XI. 1619. Cum appendice 1620. According to Brunet. 

Part XII. 1624. With the map " America Noviss Orbis, etc. 
1596." Leaves 1 to 8 and 114, 115 slightly damaged at the top. Leaves 
113, 116, 126, 127, 151 and 152 are wanting. The verso of folio 131 and 
the recto of folio 134 are blank. 

Part XIII. 1634. According to Brunet, with the 9 maps and engrav- 
ings. The thirteen parts are bound in twelve vols., in excellent con- 
dition, excepting the trifling defects indicated. 

Mr. Henry Stevens in his Bibliotlieca Historica remarks concerning 
DeBry. " It has become the fashion within tlie last lew years for bib- 
liographers, especially those who have got beyond their depth, to de- 
preciate and decry the great collection of voyages of the DeBrys. They 
charge that these famous engravers had not a due regard for historic 
truth, and drew upon their imaginations for most of their fine pictures 
of men, animals, and things in foreign countries. The accounts of 
Virginia and Florida, being parts 1 and 2 of the American Collection, 
are said to be overdrawn, mere fancy sketches, and therefore calculated 
only to mislead the truth-loving historian. These charges are based 
solely on negative testimony, that is, they say, that none of the ori- 
ginal paintings used by the DeBrys are known to exist, and the en- 
gravings have the appearance of German manufacture. Now it has 
been the good fortune of the writer, in his bibliographical mousings 
up and down the world, to light upon the original paintings which 
DeBry used for his Virginia and part of his Florida, and to turn up 
other facts which, all put together, not only clear the DeBrys of the 
charge of disregard of truth, but go far toward establishing their great 
Collections as trustworthy, and as honestly put forth by them. If the 
Voyagers exaggerated their own accounts, it was not the fault of the 
DeBrys. A synoposis of the story may perhaps as well be recorded 
here as anywhere, and may be brought back to the anvil , rehammered 
and worked up with authorities hereafter. It is well known tliat, 
after the failure of the Huguenot attempts to make settlements in 
Florida under Ribault and Laudonnifer in 1562-1566, the artist of the 
latter expedition — one of the very few who escaped the terrible massa- 
cre by Menendez — Le Moine by name, retired to London, resided in 
the Blackfriars, and subsequently became a " servant to Sir Walter 
Raleigh." Raleigh had known Hakluyt and his studies in Cosmogra- 
phy, while student at Oxford, and subsequently in London, while in- 
terested in the expeditions of Frobisher, Gilbert, and others, had in- 
tercourse with the author oi' Diverse Voyages. Again, somewhat later, 
after finishing his little matters in Flanders, Raleigh found himself in 
Paris, and there was Hakluyt again, nominally Chaplain to the Englisli 
Embassy under Sir E. Stafford, but really hunting historical and geo- 
graphical material for a greater work on the voyages of his countrymen 
among the outside barbarians. Here in 1584 Hakluyt finished for 
Raleigh an elaborate geographical treatise, designed to induce Eliza- 
beth to grant to Raleigh and his friends a liberal charter for discovery 
and plantation in a more southern latitude than had before been at- 
tempted by the English. They pitched upon the territory just north 
of that which they found described in Laudonnifer's Journal, which 
Hakluyt had secured, and which was pictured in the maps and draw- 
ings of Le Moine. A reconnoitering expedition had been sent out by 
Raleigh in 1584 under the command of Amidas and Barlow, which re- 
turned in September. The results of this voyage, and Hakluyt's Paper 
(63 closely-written large folio pages), entitled " A particular discourse 
concerning the greate necessitie and manifold comodyties that are like 
to grow to this Realme of Englande by the westerne discoveries lately 
attempted, written in the yere 1584, by Richarde Hakluyt ... at 
the requeste of Mr. Walter Raleigh before the coming home of his two 

Barkes " [from the nortli of Florida] etc., secured from the Queen the 
desired ( barter for six years and no more, that is, to make discoveries 
and found plantations up to 1590, when the Charter expired by limi- 
tation. While in Paris, Ilakluyt induced his friend Basanier to edit 
Laudonnifer's Journal, and publish it under the patronage of Raleigh, 
while he himself, under the same patronage, brought out his excellent 
edition of Peter Martyr's Eight Decades, with the best map by F. G., 
of the new hemisphere that had been compiled up to that time. Ba- 
eanier's book appeared in 1586, and Hakluyt's in 1587. Laudonnifer's 
Journal fell into the hands of Theodore DeBry, an enterprising en- 
graver at Frankfort, formerly of Liege. One of the ten or a dozen who 
escaped the massacre in Florida was a young man named DeBry, pro- 
bably a relative of the engraver. At all events the engraver took a 
deep interest in the work, and in 1587 went to London to see LeMoine 
in the Blackfriars, with a view of obtaining some of his paintings, to 
enable him to reproduce Loudonnifer's' Journal with illustrations. But 
being at the time in Raleigh's service, Le Moine was either unable or 
imwilling to give De Bry all he wanted. But Le Moine dying the next 
year, De Bry returned to London in 1588, and succeeded in bujing of 
the widow the rest of the Florida collection. But while there he fell 
in with Hakluyt, who was then engaged in bringing out his first folio 
Collection of Voyages. Hakluyt informed De Bry of the recent Vir- 
ginia Expeditions under Raleigh's Charter, and suggested that, instead 
of bringing out his Florida as a separate book, he had better take the 
new book of Master Thomas Hariot, just out of the press, and illus- 
trate it from the portfolio of John White, the artist sent out by Queen 
Elizabeth as chief Draughtsman in the expedition of 1585, who had 
recently returned, dedicate the work to Raleigh, and so begin a grand 
illustrated collection of voyages, the Virginia being the first part, the 
Florida to be held back to form the second part. Hariot, White, Ra- 
leigh, and De Bry all fell into this arrangement, and Hakluyt agreed 
to write the descriptions of White's maps and pictures. DeBry thus 
having filled his portfolios with copies of White's works and the origi- 
nals of the late Le Moine's paintings, returned to Frankfort, and, with 
incredible enterprise and perseverance, brought out his Virginia in 
1590, and the Florida in 1591, the latter as the Second Part of a Col- 
lection of Voyages. The Florida by this arrangement had been en- 
larged by additional pieces and plates. From this brief statement it 
will be perceived that thus far DeBry's Collection is perfectly authentic, 
and in its origin is essentially English. In another place we think it 
will not be difficult to show that he was alike painstaking and straight- 
forward in the materials of all the other parts of both his America and 
India, and hence it must follow that the Collections are as deserving 
of confidence as the original Voyages from which they are reprinted, 
translated, and edited."

be free, existing under a tyranny supported solely by themselves.

Chapters vii, to xx., pp. 100 to 225, are devoted to descriptions of the

given a specimen of one of their songs in the Esquimaux language 
with the parallel passages in English, occupying four pages. Chapter 
xvi, treats of the principles of thai tongue with a vocabulary and 
grammatical analysis of twelve pages. Although the quaint relation 
of the Danish missionary Egede affords us little information regarding 
the natives of Greenland which has not often been printed, yet his 
narratives of incidents among them, and descriptions of their charac- 
teristics at that early day (1721), are valuable as historical records.

Of the sixty pioneer women whose biographies appear in this volume, 
nearly all ob:ained the celebrity which gives them a place in it, on the 
frontier, in conflict with the Indians. Much the largest portion of the 
book is therefore occupied with the details of female heroism, or suffer- 
ings from Indian wars or barbarity. The work owes little to other 
printed books ; its material bavin been collected by the author from 
original sources, which were either documents, the personal narrations 
of actors or their friends.

complete series of tlie various tracts issued by the " Corporation

them are scarce but some are of extreme rarity. 

The complete series consists of eleven, and is probably, next to the 
Jesuit Relations, the most difficult to reassemble in good copies, of any 
works relating to American History. Some of these Protestant rela- 
tions of missions among the Indians, bring almost fabulous prices. 
One hundred and seventy dollars has been paid for that of 1659 (No. 9), 
and one hundred dollars was paid both by Mr. Menzies and myself for 
that of 1671, They are doubtless all written by the hand, or from 
material furnished by the writings of John Eliot. No series of works 
relating to American history are more sought for ; and the collector 
who possesses a large part of either the Catholic or Protestant Rela- 
tions of Missions, while he has something to boast of, has still a long 
period of expectancy to keep alive his interest, before he will complete 
either one of them." — Field.

[Essay on tins question : When and how has America been peopled

that he is about to propound a theory of the population of America 
both novel and impregnable, asserts that it was antediluvian in its 
origin. He berates Grotius, DeLaet, and Hornius in detail, but he 
groups Acosta, Lescarbot, Brerewood, and Moraes with " plusiers ecri- 
vains," and dismisses them altogether with contempt.

If there ever existed a tribe of savages who were recognized by such 
a title, it was sufficient warrant for their extermination ; and judged 
by this rule the author himself had but little advantage. He termi- 
nates his narrative by marriage with a maiden of Spencer in New 
Hampshire.where he fixed his habitation in 1794. Whether the author 
Avas ever a captive to any savage tribe is somewhat uncertain ; his 
narrative is at all events little better than a fiction. It is one of the 
rarest of books relating to the aborigines.

This, altliough with the same date, is really a different, somewhat la- 
ter, and generally inferior edition to tlie first. The only point of superi- 
ority consists in the addition of the fourth part. The first three books 
of the second (Mlition are not unfreqiuiiitly found unacconii)anie(l by tlie 




fourtli, and the imperfect work is believed to be complete on account of 
tlie finis and the table. The relations of the Buccaneers are full of 
particulars of the Indians who two centuries since inhabited the 
islands and the main of the Caribbean Sea. The fierce French and 
English marauders who so constantly overcame the Spaniards, were 
as constantly checked or defeated whenever they assailed the Indians 
of the Isthmus or the adjacent countries. But the most noteworthy his- 
torical fact elucidated by this volume, is the proof of the retributive 
fruit of vengeance forever produced from the vile seeds of cruelty. 
The Spauiacd, who for a century and a half had devastated the coun- 
tries of the Indians, with cruelties born of hell, was now to become the 
prey of fiends as ferocious and vindictive but more powerful than

The Narratives and .Journals of early voyages to the Arctic territo- 
ries, of which this work consists, are filled with accounts of the ferocity 
and viudictiveness of the natives, traits of character for which the pre- 
sent Esquimaux inhabitants have never been remarkable. It is evi- 


dent that tlie rp,ce of aborigines whicli alarmed the early navigators 
by their fierce warfare, has long passed away, and the place of the 
implacable red Indian been occupied by the mild fair-skinned Esqui- 
maux. See Sabin's Dictionary, No. 35410.

f-.^ in Two Parts, The First Part Treating of the Original of their 
'^ Incas or Kings ; Of their Idolatry ; Of their Laws and Govern- 
ment both in Peace and War ; Of the Reigns and Conquests of 
the Incas j The Second Part Describing the manner by which 
that new World was conquered by the Spaniards. Also the 
Civil AVars between the Pizarrists and the Almagrians, occa- 
sioned by Quarrels arising about the Division of that Land ; Of 
the Rise and Fall of Rebels, and other Particulars contained in 
that History. Illustrated with Sculptures. Written originally 
in Spanish by the Inca Garcillasso De La Vega, and rendered 
into English by Sir Paul Rycaut K'. Folio, ca^. London, IQ'S^ 

The author was the son of one of the conquerors of Peru, Garcilaso 
de la Vega, by the daughter of the Inca Huallpa Tupac, and sister of 
Huayna Capac Inca, the last native monarch of Peru. He was so 
proud of both paternal and maternal origin, that while he assumed 
the Spanish name of the first, he was careful to assert his Incarial 
descent. He was evidently a gentleman of refinement, and possessed 
of much more learning than was usually acquired by the conquestadors 
themselves. Tliat one of Indian blood, and a descendant of the proud 
race of the Incas, slioukl have bcseu the most industrious and careful 
historian of the evil fortunes of his race, and the chronicler of the vic- 
tories of their concpii^-ors, may well excite our surprise.

The history of the French Domination occupies two volumes, and 
that of the Spanish, one. The first two, are very largely composed of 
the details of French negotiation, wars, and intercourse with the Indians 
of that vast territory once known as Louisiana. Gleaned from all 
sources, except original and unpublished documents, it is yet an in- 
teresting and in some respects a valuable naration. It pictures the 
life of the Aborigines, with all the fidelity which a romantic para- 
phrase of history can do.

This brave magistrate and zealous philanthropist, prepared his histor- 
ical memoir of tlio Indians of N. E. for publication in 1674, but it re- 
mained in manuscript until 1792. The same popular frenzy against 
the Indians, which infected all the Colonies at diiferent periods, infu- 
riated the children of the Puritans, a few months after the completion 




of this memoir. Five hundred Christian Indians, accused most un- 
warrantably of association with the murders by Pagan tribes, were 
lodged for safety on Deer Island in Boston harbor, and the populace 
of Boston raged for their blood, with as vehement savagery as the 
unsanctified Dutch under Gov. Kieft, or the furibund Scotch Pres- 
byterians of Paxton. Gookin opposed this murderous sentiment with 
such firmness, that the lives of the prisoners were spared, only how- 
ever, to endure incredible sufferings, from the rigors of winter, un- 
sheltered and starving.

The illustrations, from plates engraved by Tlaeodore de Bry, are of 
extraordinary beauty. They are all representations of savage life, 
principally of the Indians of Virginia, and although more or less im- 
aginative, have been reproduced in a score of works, from Montanus to 
Lafiteau, and of all sizes from folio to duodecimo. The English edi- 
tion printed in the same year is extremely rare, having brought one 
thousand dollars in the Stevens sale at Boston in 1870. It has been 
reproduced in facsimile by the photo-lithographic process by J. Sabin 
and Sons, with the following title :

added, A concise description of the face of the Country, its In- 
habitants, their Manners, Customs, Laws, Religions, etc. 8°, 
half morocco. Andover, 1820 

This Journal purports to have been only revised and published by 
Mr. Daniel Haskell, but he is said to have introduced religious reflec- 



tions not made by the author. Harmon's narration of events among 
and peculiarities of the Indian tribes is believed by those familiar with 
him, and the regions he visited, to be correct ; but the life of a fur- 
trader, dispensing fire water to the Indians, while daily witnessing the 
murders it produced, was not favorable to religious emotions. Mr. ■ 
Haskell makes the writer reject the proffer of an Indian concubine by 
her father, with very proper pious emotions ; but Mr. Schoolcraft inti- 
mates that the latter were not more consonant with his character than 
the story of his continence. A copious vocabulary of the Cree or 
Knistenaw language is given on pp. 385 to 413. The journal of events 
in his life as an Indian trader, terminates at page 273, and two subdi- 
visions entitled " Account of the Indians living East of the Rocky 
Mountains," and "Account of the Indians living West of the Rocky 
Mountains," are evidently written by another hand, perhaps from 
Harmon's dictation,

greater detail and minuteness, filling much the larger portion of the

the origin and character of the natives of his State, prior to the settle- 
ment by the whites. He does not favor the hypothesis of great anti- 
quity in the Indian nations of America, and believes in their common 
origin with the Caucasian race. He describes with great minuteness 
and care the relics of the race which once inhabited the territory, its 
utensils, skeletons, crania, and fortifications, most of which he appears 
to have personally inspected.

The narrative o^ this mission is a history of the noblest labors of the 
human race. Heckewelder's narrative is a full and undoubtedly faith- 
ful record of all the details of the Mission, its wonderful success and 
its appalling destruction. He was able to give a thousand particulars 
from personal experience, and it is at once an interesting story abound- 
ing in veritable incidents, and a valuable history, fortified by impreg- 
nable facts.

The whole of this noble work is devoted to a history of the relations 
of the Indians of America to its Spanish invaders; and the effect of 
their occupation, and conquest upon the population, religion, and 
manners of the aborigines. The various narratives and histories, which 
describe the awful destruction of many Indian nations by the Spaniards, 
are criticised with true philosophical acumen, and the veracity and 
capability of their authors fairly examined.

This is the first edition of the first part of Hennepin's larger work, 
which was the next year translated into English, and published under 
the title, A New Discovery of a Vast Country in America. The work 
includes the substance of his first book, but more minutely describes 
the characteristics of the Indian tribes through which he passed. It 
was very exactly reproduced in English, even to the divisions into 
chapters and the tables of contents, maps and plates. The preface con- 
taining a lengthy narration of his embroglio with Mr. La Salle, his 
own o'rder, and the French government was very greatly abridged. 
The second part was not published until the following year.

Father Hennepin very properly terms tliis, bis third volume ; being a 
relation of subsequent discoveries ; of La Salle's assassination ; and of 
the customs of tribes of Indians, unnoticed in bis former vporks. The 
recent acquisition of these three volumes, enables me to correct im- 
pressions obtained from bibliographical notices of Hennepin's works, 
which governed me when the note to No. 685 was written. This vol- 
ume is almost perfectly reproduced in the Second Part of the English 
version, entitled Contimiation of tlie New Discovery. Even the long, 
rambling preface, is in this instance presented to us unmutilated. All 
subsequent top. 184, of the English entitled An Account of Several 
New Discoveries in N. A., is not to be found in the French editions. 
This account occujiying 44 pp. purports to be from the hand of Henne- 
pin ; who perhaps added it at the instance of the English publisher. 
His first work printed in 1683, and again in 1688 ; has never been pub- 
lished in English. It formed the basis for the other two, in which^all 
its material was reproduced.

It has been the fashion until late in this age, to deride the work of 
Father Hennepin, as smacking of the marvelous. Indeed, some of our 
savants have endeavored to prove that the very excellent Father Re- 
collect never saw any of the wonders he narrates. This severe criti- 
cism proceeds from sources which entitle him to the benefit at least of 
a doubt of its impartiality. First. Father Charlevoix, who cast the 
first cloud of suspicion, was a missionary priest of the Jesuits, who 
were at one time under the ban in New France through the influence 


of the Recollects, to wliicli order Father Hennepin belonged. Second. 
The author lost the support of his own brethren of the order of Recol- 
lects by neglecting or refusing to return to his duties in America as a 
missionary. Accordingly retired to Utrecht in Holland." Field. ■

No one has ever disputed the fidelity of old Herrera, styled the Prince 
of Historians, to the sources of information then accessible, and no one 
has ever exceeded him in careful research, and interesting narration of 
aboriginal history. He sought and obtained many of the original docu- 
ments, which the industry and spirit of the old missionaries and ex- 
plorers made so numerous and voluminous. He copied, almost bodily, 
the MS. History ot the Indies by Las Casas. Mr. Squier notices that 
he has transferred almost the entire MS. Relacion of Palacio, to his 
Fourth Decade. His work is a perfect treasure-house of the most valu- 
ble details, regarding the original state of the religion and manners of 
the Indians.

Mr. Hopkins's Memoir is one of the rarest of works relatinjr to New 
England, as it is one of the most intrinsically valuable. This 
abridgment fails in the last quality by reason of its abbreviation, but 
is nearly as rare. The last six pages is occupied with a letter of Con-

This is the celebrated treatise on the Orgin of the Americans, writ-

It provoked an angry rejoinder from the latter, which was answered 
by a counter-treatise from Laet. All of these essays display a degree of 
learning and refinement, which we shall look for in vain in later works.

in this work the clearest philosophical analysis. Many of the plates

The wonders explored by this expedition, and for the first time 
unveiled to the world, have scarcely yet begun to be credited. The 
Colorado flowing between perpendicular walls a mile and a quarter in 
altitude, is not the only development of this exploration which excites 
our interest. Lieut. Ives was the first to give us the results of an 
intelligent observer of the celebrated yet almost mythical fortified 
villages of the Moquis Indians. Enclosing by a wall fifteen to twenty 
feet high, in which there is no gate or entrance way, they were not 
more secure from their enemies, than they were secluded and mysteri- 
ous to the outer world. For more than three centuries their very 
existence liad remained one of the problems of history ; but in this 
volume the author exposes them to the glare of the light of investiga- 
tion. Ten large colored plates representing dwellings, physiognomy 
and habits.

A pleasing and truthful historical narrative of the missions of Elliot 
among the Indians at Natick and Nonantum. The details and inci- 


dents are evidently derived from authentic sources ; and with the bio- 
graphical sketches of notable Indian converts, the narratives of their 
persecutions of Christian Indians by the Puritans, and the table of 
Indian names and their significations, form a work of no inconsiderable 
value in Indian history.

The editor obtained the material for its construction from the lips of

thirty years. His relation of his life among the Northern Indians, is 
probably the most minute if not authentic detail of their habits, modes

The first form, in which Jefferson produced the great mass of testi-

Indians, by Cresap's party of marai^ders. If the evidence of the perpe- 
tration of these crimes, and of the authenticity of Logan's wonderful 
speech, are not conclusive, then historical testimony, fortified by cor- 
roboration from living witnesses ; must be as illusory as fiction. Re- 
cent as was the publication of this treatise, there are in my experience 
few rarer works on American history.

Almost twenty years of personal explorations of burial and sacrificial 
mounds find in this volume the record of their results. No volume having 
the examination of American antiquities for its subject, was ever prepar- 
ed under such favorable auspices for its perfection. The zeal and learning 
of its author, impelled him to supplement the theories of others by his 
own explorations, and discoveries. The plates are from drawings of 
his own collection and numerous as the objects they illustrate, they 
represent but a small portion of those which his industry and good 
fortune have made him the possessor.

aftei' the announc(!ment of the subject. The learned Count traces the 
Tyrian exiles directly to the shores of America, with almost as much

Appendix, tracing the ancestry of the American aborigines through the 
Tyrians, from tlie phmet Herschel, to complete his scheme, — Field.

was written by one of the companions of that celebrated traveler, who 
seems to have been the only one on whom La Salle could rely. Joutel

of Bologna ; and in the Bodleian Library at Oxford ; together 
with the Monuments of New Spain, by M. Dupaix ; with their

embracing all the Remains of Mexican Architecture, Art, Re- 
ligion, etc., (pub. at £175), half hound in green morocco^ gilt 
edges. London, 1830—48 

The immense number of historical documents preserved in these 
volumes, whose mystery has never yet been solved, may be conceived 
when we state that the first volmne contains 238, the second 225, 
and the third 152 colored plates, in imitation of the barbaric task of 
the Aztec historians. Many of these plates contain hundreds of fig- 
ures. The fourth volume contains plates, of which many are immense 
folded sheets ; and although uucolored, are beautifully executed repre- 
sentations of idols, statues, buildings and fortifications. The fifth vol- 
ume, 493 pages, is entirely occupied with descriptions, (in Spanish), of 
the plates in the first four volumes ; and the sixth volume, 540 pages, is 
filled with translations of these descriptions accompanied bj' numerous 
and lengthy notes. The seventh volume, 404 pages, contains a report 
of Father Sahagan's Historia de Nueva Espana. Volume eight con- 
tains notes in English, entitled a Continuation of Vol. VI, and Extracts 
from Garcia, Acosta and Torquemado, with Veytia and Simon's Trea- 
tises on the Origin of the Indians ; and a report of Adair's History of 
the North American Indians. In volume nine, the learned and noble 
editor published, for the first time, the work of Tezozomoc, entitled 
' Cronica Mexicana,' he also reproduces the work of Ixtlilxochitl, on 
the history of the Chicemecas. Also another work by the same author 
entitled Belaciones Historical, which I have not seen elsewhere 
printed. The last treatise (in Spanish), is Ancient Rites, sacrifices and 
idolatries of the Indians of New Spain. 

The sad story associated with these volumes, although often related, 
is worthy of repetition wherever learning is honored, or devotion to 
literature esteemed. The Viscount, Edward Kingsborough, seems to 
have become early imbued with that zeal bordering on infatuation 
which had illured so many scholars before him ; the desire to prove 
that the American Indians were descendants of the Jews ; the mystery 
of the Aztec pictographs, first attracted his interest and he re- 
solved to at least preserve these unsolved symbols from destruction. 


While a scliolar at Oxford, tlie sight of an original Aztec pictograph, 
described by Purclios aroused that devotion, which never faltered 
through the remainder of his life. For the accomplishment of his 
designs, he engaged the services of several soholars and learned 
bibliophiles. It was while engaged in this employment, that Mr. 
Obadiah Rich obtained much of that store of information relating to 
the early history of America, which made him eminent. All the 
libraries and archives of Spain, were, by royal mandate opened to his 
search, and nearly one hundred folio volumes of MS. copies of import- 
ant historical documents rewarded his labors. The whole of this 
treasure, was, after the death of Lord Kingsborough, sold at auction 
in Dubhn, and Mr. Rich had the good fortune to obtain it almost 
entire. It is impossible to narrate without sadness, the fatal termina- 
tion of this generous nobleman's devotion to his project. After 
having expended more than £30,000, he refused to comply with what he 
conceived to be the unjust demands of the paper makers, and was 
arrested in Dublin, and put in prison, when he was seized with the 
jail fever and died in a few days. Had he lived a few months longer, 
he would have inherited the title of Earl of Kingston, with an estate 
of £40,000 a year. Thus fortune laughs at our miseries ; and mocks 
us with success that comes too late. It is to be regretted that Mr. 
Rich, who tells us this sad story, and adds with j ustifiable gratification, 
that Lord Kingsborough presented him with one of the ten copies 
printed on large drawing paper, should not have informed us how 
large a number of copies possessed the colored plates, although the 
other nine were presented to crowned heads, and public institutions.

The History of the New World or description of the West Indies. 
Asher remarks, concerning this work, that he could not find a copy in 
Holland. It contains many materials not to be found in the original 
Dutch. Charlevoix says : " This work is full of the most excellent and 
curious details of the natural history, and the character, manners, and 
customs of the American aborigines, derived from the reports of the 
European mission establishments in America. It contains many docu- 
ments upon American philology, taken for the most part from the col- 
lection of Ramusio, upon the languages of the natives of Canada, and 
the relation of Lery of those of Brazil."

Manners of the Savages of America compared with those of Ancient 
Times. Gives very extended and very exact details of the customs, 
manners, and religion of the savages of America, though principally 
of the Indians of Canada. Charlevoix says : " We have nothing so 
exact upon the subject of which he treats. His parallel of ancient 
nations with the Amei-ican Indians is very ingenious, and exhibits as 
great familiarity with the nations of antiquity in the Old World, as 
with the aborigines of the new."

Dialogue between the Baron La Hontan, and an American Indian. 
Containing an exact description of the Manners and Customs of the 
Savage Natives. The dramatical part of the work is probably imagi- 
nary. The traits of the savages are fairly illustrated in its 
course, but it was used as a medium by the author to proclaim his 
deistical theories, and is of as much historical consequence as Rogers's 
Ponteach, or Count Johannes's Tecumseh, a Drama.

carriage of the former ; and the various Adventures between 
the French, and the Iroquese Confederates of England, from

General of the Savages, giving a full View of the Religion and 
strange Opinions of these People : with an Account of the Au-

into English, a great part of which never Printed in the Origi- 
nal. 2 vols., 8vo, lialf calf. London, 1703 
The work of La Hontan has not received the amount of credit to 
which it is really entitled, although written by a man of more than 
ordinary learning and intelliprence. Had he written no other work 
than the New Voyages, it is probable that it would have experienced 
no lack of esteem, but his Kelations even when scrupulously exact, 
have felt the mahgn influence of the skepticism and infidelity which 
he infused into his subsequent work. Dialogue between the Author and 
a Sauvage. This is a translation of his Voyage originally published 
in French, in 1703.

in the West Indies, wherein is to be seen the inhuman cruel acts of 
the Spaniards, together with a Description of the Country and the 
naanners and customs of the People. At the Service of and as an 
Example for all good and patriotic Men. These are reproductions of 
De Bry's plates at first issued in the Latin edition of 159, except one.

[The Mirror of Spanish Tyranny perpetrated in the West Indies. 
We see in it a Cruelty more than inhuman committed by the Spaniards, 
also a description of ihe countries, natives, and their nature. Illustrated 
by the Bishop Bartholomew de las ( 'asas, of the Order of Saint Dominick. 
Newly recollected, with copperplate Figures.] Seventeen copperplate 
engravings from De Bry are printed in the text. This work is not the 
same as the Tyrannies et Gruautesdes Espagnols. It differs materially 
also fi'om that afterwards reprinted under the title of Histoire des In- 
dies Occidentales. It is a translation from the Dutch, with the plates 
engraved by the De Bry's for the edition of 1598, and is the only French 
edition possessing them. It has been considered as the sequel of a 
work illustrated by the same Engravers, entitled, Tyrannee Esjjaynole 
perpetres au Pays Bas, although it is entirely independent in subject 
and pagination. The Hollanders took every pains to render the cruelty 
of the Spaniards immortally infamous, and the genius of De Bry was 
exhausted in illustrating their ingenuity of torture. It contains only a 
portion of the Brevissima Relacion and Carte, rearranged and distorted 
with a small fragment of the Gobrapratono. See Sabin's Dictionary, 
No. 11370.

V [Relation of the Voyages and Discoveries made by the Spaniards in 

the West Indies. With the Relation of the Sieur Montauban, Captain 
of Buccaneers in Guinea, 1695.] This is a translation of five of Las 
Casas's treatises, entirely diflferent from that of Miggrode. The trea- 
tises are all much abbreviated, having been printed to arouse the Hol- 
landers against the Spaniards. The Relation of Montauban has a sepa- 
rate title. Mr. Rich says the translation was made by the Abbe de 
Bellegarde, whose politeness (or perhaps fear of the Spanish influence 
at the French court), induced him to soften some of the cruel parts, 
lest they should give pain to delicate persons.

This professes to be a translation of the French book entitled 
Tyraiudes et Cruautez des Espangnols. The Relations of Las Casas 
proved a most formidable weapon for any nation on ill terms with the 
Spaniards. Ten editions at least with prints portraying the horrible 
cruelties perpetrated by the Spanish upon the Indians, were printed 
in Holland, while struo^gling with the murderous banditti of Pliilip 
II. Three were printed in France, during the prevalence of hostilities 
with Spain, and four in England under similar animus. It is worthy 
of note, that the Tears of the Indians places their slaughter at twenty 
millions, the editor of this Relation doubles the number and calls it 
forty millions. It is to be hoped that the real number inhumanly 
tortured and slain has been fictitiously doubled many times, otherwise 
we should be compelled to believe that the torments of purgatory 
were too moderate for the Spaniards." — Field.

This work, owes its existence to Las Casas. The original manuscript, 
in the well known handwriting of the venerable Bishop, was discovered 
by Navarrette, near the close of the last century ; but on account of 
the disturbed condition of iSpanish affairs, did not make its appearance 
in print, until 1825. The title of the two volumes which it filled, was

the surveyor was tlie precursor of the settler, who seized upon and oc- 
cupied the lands of the savages, he was always the especial object of 
their detestation. — Meld.

This Historical and Chronological description of the two stones 
which at the time of the new pavement being laid in the principal 
Plaza of Mexico were found in it in the year 1799. The calendar sys- 
tem of the Indians is explained, the method which they had for divid- 
ing time, and the correction which they made to adjust the civil year, 
which they made use of, with the solar tropical year. A notice very 
necessary for the perfect understanding of the second stone ; to which 
are added others curious «nd instructive on the Mythology of the Mex- 
icans, on their Astronomy, and on the rites and ceremonies they usually 
practiced at the period of their heathenism, was published at the ex- 
j)eu8e of the Mexican Goveruraeut.

as the work of a candid and intelligent writer, and the first history of 
the French settlements in Canada. Charlevoix's praise of him is fla- 
vored with a little of his characteristic acidity. " Marc Lescarbot, ad- 
vocate in the Parliament of Paris, was a man of sense and learning, 
but a little addicted to the marvelous." The good father, however, 
subsequently neutralises the sharpness of his ciiticism by saying,

fore him, relating to the discoveries of the French in America, all that 
passed in French Florida, etc. — He was siucere, well educated, and

Commenced by Captain Lewis himself, who was on his route to 
Philadelphia to engage in its completion, when the derangement seized 
him, under the influence of which he committed suicide at St. Louis. 
It was then undertaken by Mr. Nicolas Biddle, who in conjunction 
with Captain Clarke, arranged the numerous notes, and copious diaries 
and jpurnals, kept by each of the principal explorers, and enlarged the 
skeleton of many incidents from the recollections of the survivor. 

Mr. Samuel G. Drake says that he was informed by Mr. Nicholas 
Biddle that he was himself the editor who is referred to in the preface, 
as having nearly completed the work for the press . This is by far the 
most complete edition of this interesting work whose value to the his-

for nineteen years. His knowledge of the character, customs, and

Schuyler, Major Peter Schuyler, commanded in several battles with

to England the Four Indian Kings, of whom an account is given in the

Filled with accounts of the tribes of the Indians, who inhabited the 
regions traversed by him three quarters of a century ago. No writer 
upon the subject of Indian customs and peculiarities, has given us a 
more minute, careful and interesting relation of them, as indeed none 
were better fitted to do, by long experience among them as a fur trader. 
His investigations, although pursued at so early a period of Arctic

Mante's association with the frontier war between the American 
colonists and the Canadian French and Indians, did not commence 
until 1764, the last year of hostilities with these allies. He seems, 
however, to have made good use of his opportunities to gain informa- 
tion. He describes with great detail the campaigns of Washington and 
Braddock, of Generals Abercrombie and Amherst, and of Colonels 
Bradstreet and Boquet. The last chapter gives the principal incidents 
of Pontiac's war. The maps and plans are often missing.

It is difficult to speak of this splendid work in such terms as its ex- 
cellence deserves, vnthout seeming to be extravagant in laudation. 
Tiie author has brouglit the art of photography to aid for the first 
time, in illustrating a work principally treating of the aborigines of 
America. Nothing effected by engraving has been published, since 
the days of the brothers De Bry, so elaborate, so rich, and so perfect 
in dravs^ing, scenery, costume, and anatomical correctness.

The first English translation containing the first three Decades. To 
Richarde Eden Mr. Rich devotes a page of eloquent praise, and quotes 
the glowing passage in his preface in which he recites the motive 
which prompted the woi-k. These Decades, first printed in Latin in 
1516, contain probably the first systematic and critical narration of the 
peculiarities of religion and customs of the American Indians. Both 
this and the subsequent edition of 1577 are considered among the 
rarities of Bibliography. In catalogues of recent issue in England, the 
prices at which copies have been oflfered vary from £15 to £21.

Fourth Decade but without the division into liooks which Eden pre- 
served. This additional portion is almost wholly descriptive of the

There is not a little discrepancy in the views of bibliographers, re- 
garding the issues of this edition. White Kennett makes it the first 
of the complete English editions, placing it under the date of 1597. 
What authority he had for his conclusion is not even guessed at by 
the authorities of the present day. Mr. Sabin simply quotes Mr. 
Rich's note, to the edition of 1613 ; " Some copies are without date." 
Fernaux and Stevens do not notice it. It would seem from this nega- 
tive testimony, to have been even rarer than the editions of 1613, and

' The aiithor was an Italian scholar of a noble family of Milan, born 
1455, died 1526. He possessed eminent ability and learning, and is 
believed to be the first writer who noticed in his works the discovery 
of America by his countryman Columbus ; as he is the first who pub- 
lished a treatise descriptive of the peculiarities of the natives of the 
New "World. He was the contemporary and friend of the great 
navigators, discoverers, and conquerors — Columbus, Vasco de Gama, 
Cortes, Magellan, Cabot, and Vespucius. Beside the great advan- 
tage thus acquired, his official position as member of the council 
for the Indies, afforded him the inspection of documents of undoubted 
authenticity. His work, therefore, composed from sources of such im- 
portance, and with such aids, has always been placed in the highest 
rank of authorities, on the history of the first association of the Indians 
with Europeans.

Almost every volume of the first tliree series is nearly filled with 
materia] illustrating; the aboriginal history of the country. Not only 
were very rare works of that class reprinted, but original treatises 
and MSS. of the most valuable character were published, and 
very precious documents, like Gookin's Historical Collections of the 
Indians of N. E., and Nile's History of the Indian Wars of N. E., 
were for the first time made accessible to the public. It is to be re- 
gretted that the later volumes have assumed more the character of 
state documents. The first series of ten volumes contains fifty-two 
treatises on Indian history, languages, or origin ; including Roger 
Williams's Key into the languages of N. E., 85 pages. The second 
series has fifteen tracts on the same subjects, including Edwards's 
Observations on the Mohegan Language, with Duponceau's Notes, 
Winslow's Account of the Religion, Manners, and Customs of the 
Indians of N. E. But it is in the third series that these collections 
excel in the number and value of their essays and histories of the 
aborigines. Sixty-one tracts, illustrating almost every feature of their 
character and history, are either reproduced, or for the first time brought 
to light in these volumes. Seven of the eleven reporis, to the " Cor- 
poration for the Propagation of the Gospel among the Indians," com- 
monly known as the Eliot Tracts, are reprinted in this series. Captain 
John Und(!rhiirs History of the Pequot War ; Vincent's Relation of 
the Battel! with the Pequods ; Waymouth's Voyage to Va., in 1605; 
Levett's Voyage to N. E.,in 1G23 ; Lion Gardiner's Relation of the

the knowledge that his reverend brother, Wm. Hubbard, was engaged

" This following relation was written neer upon a year ago ; since

The author was very assiduous in collecting facts relating to the 
condition, history and character of the Indians of Peru and Brazil, 
particularly of the unexplored districts, in the valley of the Maranon. 
He studied them with the zeal of a scholar, and the analysis of an 
ethnologist, and although his opportunities were comparatively nar- 
row, and his tour very rapid, he gleaned with great industry.

The quarto volume is the text of one of the most beautiful and costly 
of works, having the American Indians for their subject. The wise- 
acre who gave it an English dress, takes credit to himself in his preface, 
for omitting the very extensive vocabularies found in the German edi- 
tion, occupying nearly one quarter of volume second. To cover this 
defect the German text is added as above. The volume of plates con- 
tains eighty-one vignettes and full-page colored engravings of the 
most perfect drawing, and beautiful execution. Forty-nine of these 
are illustrative of some phase in Indian life and character. Two En- 
glish editions of these plates have been issued, the last, so much infe- 
rior to the other as to be unworthy of comparison, was published by 
Mr. E. Lumley to meet a continued demand for the work.

Mexico, m.dccc.lxx 
This extraordinary work upon the conversion of the Indians of 
Mexico to the Catholic faith had slumbered in MS., for 250 years when 
the eminent Mexican scholar and archaeologist Signor Icazbalceta 
brought it to the light and universality of the press. Its importance can 
scarcely be overestimated. Mendieta, for the history of the Aztecs, 
was sent to Mexico in 1554 and remained there till 1571, having spent 
much of his time in the study of the Mexican languages. Torque- 
nada evidently had access to his MS., for he has reproduced a large 
portion of it without giving any credit to Mendieta. His love for the 
Indians exhibited itself in the same manner as that of LasCasas, and 
Palafox, and with almost equal fervor and eloquence, he appealed in 
his numerous letters to the king_and the council of the Indians in their

The Tierra de Ouarra of the time of Las Casas remained for three 
centuries not only the Land of War, but the land of mystery. A vast 
tract of territory in Guatemala, inhabited by the fierce Itzas and Lo- 
candons, whose wars are recorded by Villagnatierre ; was for the first 
time visited by a peaceful traveler in 1846. The adventurous French- 
man, whose literary thirst impelled him to explore this mysterious 
country, recorded his observations in a manner which entitles them to 
more credence than could be fairly claimed by many of his countryman. 
His work is largely composed of details of his intercourse with the 
modern Indians, and of his examinations of the relics of the ancient

they are worthy of a place in a bibliography of works upon the Ame- 
rican Indians. They are the result of the personal observations, of 
one of the most acute and scrupulous of scholars and the Indian utensils 
and manufactures they illustrate are the fruits of his own untiring zeal 
in collecting. The plates are exact portrayals of the beautifully 
wrought and colored objects of Indian skill. Beside the number, in- 
dicated in the collection, sixty-eight woodcut illustrations of other and 
similar objects are distributed in the text.

7^ often witnessed the representation of the drama by Indian actors, be-

lated this English version. Its great antiquity is authenticated, not so 
much by the existence of several copies in MS. as by the conformity 
of wide-spread traditions, and the entire absence of every Spanish word. 
There is not the slightest trace of ideas, derived from civilization or 
Christianity. It has received the sanction of such scholars as Drs. 
Kiviero, Tschudi, and Barranca, who were convinced that it was com- 
posed long before the conquest of Peru by Pizarro.

This work of the learned Licentiate Don Manuel Orozco is without 
question not only the best publication about the geography of Mexi- 
can idioms, but also a standard for all books on the geography of lan- 
guagres in general. Orozco is the first to show by languages, numerous 
and hitherto almost unknowu, how such a subject must be treated. He 
classifies them, describes them, determines their geographical distribu- 
tion, and offers thus to the public a work quite unique. The twelve 
years which this modest scholar devoted to the composition of his book 
must have been to him a period of incessant labour and research.

Several chapters of this curious work are devoted to descriptions of 
the aborigines of the valley of the Amazon ; and those treating of the 
advantages of commerce with them, suggest an odd comparison with 
the works of our own day, written two centuries later, which do but 
little more than repeat the same statements. It is composed princi- 
pally from that of Acuna. The map is almost without exception, 
missing from the copies oifered for sale. This is the only edition in

made by himself while he was blind. It is said not to be very correct, 
although a wonderful ]3roduction for such an artist.

His speeches to the Friends are models of good sense and religious 
conviction ; but the most remarkable of all the numerous addresses by 
American Indians, was made by him to the Governor, who offered him 
a considerable, and to the chief very valuable amount of goods, as a 
present. The dignified and noble reply, in which he declined to receive 
them, on the ground that his visit was entirely for religious instruction, 
and therefore of too sacred a character to admit of the gross indulgence 
of personal desires, is worthy of a place on the same page with the 
most renowned sayings of the heroes of antiquity. The book is of con- 
siderably rarity.

This work, in any condition, ranks among the rarest of New Eng- 
land imprints. In this copy is a MS. note. " The Rev. N. M. wrote 
to his brotlier Rev. Increase Mather a letter received August 12, 1G85. 
' A good friend and near Relation of mine, one Mr. Rich' Lot, merch't 
in London, who married my sister Thompson, desires me to write in 
behalf of this gentleman ye bearer his kinsman, Mr. Penhallow of 
Falmouth in Cornwall, who designs to spend a year or two in New 
England, in your colledge, for ye prfecting his learning," (from the 
original MSS. J. W. T.). The author was born in Cornwall, England, 
July, 1065, and arrived in Portsmouth, New Hamshire, July, 1686. 
He held many important offices of public trust with great honor, being 
chief justice of the Province, at the period of his death, in December, 
1726, at the age of sixty-one. His work on the Indian wars is esteemed 
as the highest authority on that subject. His design in emigrating 
was to serve the corporation for the propagation of the gospel among 
the Indians, as a missionary, after he had made himself acquainted 
with their language. Whether he ever really performed that service 
is uncertain. His MS. diary kept with great care, and covering a great 
portion of his life, was destroyed in the conflagration of Portsmouth,

The work of Perrot here presented to the public for the first time 
had remained in Manuscript for more than a century and a half ; but 
not unknown. It had served Charlevoix in the preparation of his great 
history of New France ; as it had long before its governors La Barre, 
Denonville, and Frontenac in determining their policy towards the 
various tribes of Indian allies and foes it describes. Its author was for 
twenty years a simple fur trader, visiting and residing for long periods 
from 1661 to 1665 with the savages he had made his friends. For 
nearly twenty years subsequently he was the official interpreter of the 
government. " His facility in acquiring the Indian languages, his 
natural eloquence, the blending of heroism, and hardiness, of coolness 
and generosity, acquired for him the confidence, and affection of a 
great number of tribes." His work has therefore a different and in 
some respects a higher value than the relations of the missionary 
fathers ; regarding the Indian tribes two centuries ago.

hibited in some stately pageant of homage to the discoverers and 
evangelists, or in a horrid festival of cannibalism, or in some appalling 
scene of massacre and torture perpetrated upon them. A curious bib- 
liographical history attaches to this volume. The real name of the 
author was Caspar Plautus, who assumed the pseudonym of Philopo- 
nus, in order to admit of one of tlie most extraordinary devices of 
egotism, ever contrived. He wrote a most fulsome piece of flattery, 
and in his character of Philoponus, dedicated it to himself, in his own 
proper cognomeu. By this device, his work, everywliere it was read, 
advertised the merit and learning of Caspar Plautus, and the praise 
seemed vastly more important, as issuing from so learned a person as 
Philoponvis. Mr. Henry Stevens first called tlie attention of English 
scholars to this curious cliai)ter in the history of egotism. The woi"k 
contains the relations of the first Catholic missionaries to the Indians 





of America, some of whom accompanied Columbus in his second voy- 
age, and lias the merit of aflbrding us many incidents of their work 
among the savages of the first discovered islands. It, is deformed, 
however, by nearly as many monkish tales of the miracles performed 
by them, on most whimsical occasions.

It is scarcely possible to express that praise of this work which is 
their merest due, without seeming extravagance. It is a model of local 
or state history. But it is the great mass of historic material relating 
to the aborigines of Alabama, which particularly entitles it to our at- 
tention. The first volume exhausts that portion of their history which 
is obtainable from the most authentic of printed authorities, but the 
second, is filled with accounts derived from unpublished documents, or 
personal relations made to the author. Few writers have possessed 
greater facilities for this last mentioned rescource, than Mr. Pickett, 
having resided among the Creeks and Cherokees with his father, an 
early Indian trader. All of the thirteen plans with which the work is 
illustrated, have for their subjects either the features, customs, fortifica- 
tions, Indian mounds of, or battles with the Indians.

The first volume of this work is divided into twelve, and the second 
volume into twenty sections, each with a bastard title, and devoted to 
an analysis of one or more aboriginal languages, or dialects. Of these, 
forty-eight receive some attention, and most of them a critical ezamih- 
ation. The peculiarities of each in grammatical construction, enun- 
ciation, and the varied particulars which distinguish them, are dis- 
cussed with the skill of an intelligent philologist. No work on the 
Indian languages of America exhibits the tokens of more labor aided 
by learning than this, yet it is said by excellent authorities to be far 
from perfect.

A very considerable amount of valuable historic material has been 
grouped iu this volume, relative to Mexican antiquities, but as in every 
treatise written to maintain a fanciful hypothesis, its value is greatly 
detireorated, from the bias given every fact, to maintain a theory in- 
capable of either proof or denial.

The reports of the Indian bureau, and of the commissioner for Indian 
affairs, form a body of material relating to the Indians, almost unri- 
valed for its minutenss in any department of history. The names, 
numbers, and condition of the Indian tribes, are g-iven with all the at- 
tention to details and correctness, which a multitude of agoiits more 
or less efficient, and sometimes conscientious, could be induced by in- 
terest and discipline to collect. To no other source can we look for 
the ]jrowressive steps, by which the savage tribes retreated before the 
overwhelming charge of the army of civilization. The reports cover 
the whole history of flie dealings of the government with its Indian 
wards. They have become exceedingly scarce, for no complete sft is 
known to exist, even in the library of Congress or in the documents of 
the Indian Bureau.

1944 Report of Indian Peace Commis.sioners. Message from the

This is the first report of the Commissioners who, voluntarily assumed 
the duties of making treaties and furnishing supplies to the Indian 
tribes which had surrendered their hunting grounds, and accepted other 
lands to starve to death upon.

This must not be confounded with the annual reports of the Indian Bu- 
reau. The Indian Commissioners were nine gentlemen who were ap- 
pointed without Salaries by the President to surpervise theactions of the 
salaried officers in relation to the Indians as well as to treat with the 
^Indians themselves. The government of tlie United States has always 
had two enemies to fiofht in its dealings with the warlike savages ; the 
Indians themselves, and its own officers, who were charged with the 
duty of preserving peaceful relations with them. Tiiis outrageous 
corruption, swindling and thieving, joined to the v.'auton murders, and 
cruel massacres of the white savages of the border, compelled the 
government to accept of the volunteer service of some of its most disin- 
terested citizens to treat with the Indians.

This book is an example of the most unblushing effrontery. The 
pseudo author assumes the credit of the performance with but the 
faintest allusion to its previous existence. It is a nearly faithful trans- 
lation of Rochefort's Histoire des Antilles. There is, however, a grati- 
fying retribution in Davies' treatment of Rochefort, for the work of the 
latter was fictitious in every part which was not purloined from authors 
whose knowledge furnished him with all in his treatise which was true.

The narrations of an intelligent observer of the peculiarities of sav- 
age life, always attract an amount of interest, which increases in pro- 
portion to the truthfulness of his coloring or shading. In all the qual- 
ities which should attract and hold our attention, it is rare to find the 
suijerior of Mr. Ross. For fifteen years he traversed the wastes of the 
Rocky Mountains, and thus became as familiar with every trait of In- 
dian character and phase of savage life, as a white man may ever ex- 
pect to be. As an Indian trader pushing his commerce among friendly 
but treacherous tribes, and even among hostile ones who are to be 
placated by resistless finery, or the equally omnipotent fire-water, he 
was often the first white man to burst upon their wild fastnesses. The 
Appendix, pp. 313 to 333 contains a vocabulary of the jSez Perce lan-

General History of the affairs of New Spain, which was written in 
twelve books, and two volumes, by Fatlier Bernardino de Sahagun, of 
the order of St. Francis, and one of the first preachers of the Gospel, in 
these countries. Edited with the addition of notes, and a supplement, 
by Carlos Maria de Bustamente, a deputy from the State of Oaxaca, to 
the General Congress of the Mexican Republic. This vponderf ul work, 
to which the entire life of Father Sahagun was devoted, is beyond 
question the most important, as it is the most authentic history of 
events, transpiring in the New World, before its discovery by Columbus. 
All that relates to the religion, customs, government, and wars of the 
Aztecs, was examined in a manner so critical, so patient and thorough 
that no history was ever conceived, or brought forth with more labor.

General, relative thereto, and the Reports of the Committees ap-

from the files of the House of Representatives in Coni»:ress. 8°. 

Fhiladelphia, 1812 

A narrative of the terrible defeat and slaughter, of eight hundred 
soldiers by the Ohio Indians. St. Clair's voluminous defense is rendered 
nugatory and futile by the passionate ejaculations of Washington, 
when Major Denny called him from a dinner-party, to announce the 
defeat. Overcome with surprise and indignation, Washington cursed 
the beaten general with exceeding fervor, adding, " Did not my last 
words warn him against a surprise."

The mystery which surrounded the authorship, history, and origin of 
this very rare volume, has been slowly dispelled by successive frag- 
ments of information. So few copies have survived the holocaust to 
which it was devoted, that its very existence was unknown to the most 
zealous collectors of Indian and Vermont history. Published anony- 
mously, without preface, it was known to but few that the author was 
the Rev. Daniel Clark Sanders, President of the University of Vermont. 
Immediately after its appearance, some person, evidently a personal 
enemy of the author, published an acrimonious critique upon tlie book, 
in the Liberal and Philosophical Rei)ository. The animus of the critic 
was evidenced, not only by the bitterness of his language, but by his 
ignorance of the subject of Indian wars, being more profound than that 
of the author of the book he scored. Such was the effect of the article 



upon either Mr. Sanders, or the puhlishers.that the work was suppressed. 
But very few copies could have escaped the hands that were now as 
zealous to destroy, as they had lately been to create. In fact, so nearly 
complete was the destruction of the book, that it was forgotten by those 
who professed to know most of its author, his biographers. Neither 
Thompson, Williams, or Hemmenway, who jjublished memoirs of San- 
ders, mention his authorship of this book.

Sixteen plates in pairs, facing each other. Seven of tlie elaborate 
very vivid representations are views of battles with the Indians, or as- 
saults on their fortifications ; five are representations of their dwellings,

It has performed a very important service for Indian history, in col- 
lecting and preserving an immense amount of historic data. Vocabu- 
laries of Indian languages, grammatical analysis, legends of various 
tribes, biographies of chiefs and warriors, narratives of captivities, his- 
tories qf Indian wars, emigrations, and theories of their origin, are all 
related and blended in an extraordinary and perplexing manner. A 
.very large number of beautiful steel engravings, representative of 
some phase of Indian life and customs, are contained in the work, but 
the most valuable of its illustrations are the drawings of weapons, 
domestic utensils, instruments, on gunning and amusement, sorcery, 
and medicine, objects of worship, their sculptures, paintings, and forti- 
fications, pictograph writing, dwellings, and every form of antiquities, 
■which have been discovered. The six volumes contain 336 plates, 
representing thousands of the scenes and objects named.

Original edition of one of the rarest works of western history. In- 
deed, in tlie quality of rarity, it is only exceeded by Loudon's Narra- 
tive. Colonel Smith was himself the type of the chivalric, brave, and 


generous frontiersman, of whicli class Daniel Boone and Simon Kenton 
were famous examples. He possessed the advantage of an intellect, 
cultivated in the rude border schools, it is true, yet not ill cultivated in 
such places as heroes were not seldom bred. 

2167 Smith. A Treatise on the Mode and Manner of Indian 
War, their Tactics, Discipline and Encampment, the various 
Methods they Practise, in order to obtain the Advantage, by 
Ambush, Surprise, Surrounding, &c. Ways and Means pro- 
posed to Prevent the Indians from obtaining the Advantage. 
A Chart, or Plan of Marching, and Encamping, laid down, 
whereby we may undoubtedly Surround them, if we have Men 
sufficient. Also — A Brief Account of Twenty-three Cam- 
paigns, carried on against the Indians with the Events since the 
year 1755 ; Gov. Harrison's included. By Col. James Smith. 
Likewise — Some Abstracts selected from bis Journal, while in 
Captivity with the Indians, relative to the Wars : which was 
published many years ago, but few of them now to be found.

The Narrative of Colonel Smith's Captivity had ah'eady become 
scarce, when the patriotic veteran, on the breaking out of the war 
with Great Britian, fully comprehending the danger of underrating 
the savage foe, whom that government would make its allies, issued 
this treatise of military instruction. The work has become even rarer 
than the previous lot.

The greater part of tlie value of tliis work, consists in the perfection 
and identity of the maps. The first edition is the most desirable when 
it possesses the maps properly belonging to it. In the subsequent 
editions, the maps underwent such alterations as distinguish each of 
them from the others- It is so commonly the case, as almost to form 
the rule, that even the best copies of Smith's book have been made up 
by the substitution of later editions of some of the maps. This uncer- 
tainty extends even to the portraits. That of the Dachesse of Rich- 
mond, is generally supposed to have been reengraved, and collectors 
have been somewhat puzzled to ascertain if their copies were originals 
I have copies both of the original impression, and the so called replica, 
and the distinction between the original impressions and the subse- 
quent ones, consists in the cross hatchings which were made after the 
impressions were taken for Smith's history.

" The typographical and cartographical execution of these volumes is 
much more deserving of praise than their literary qualities. The maps 
are beautifully reproduced in fac-simile, and the text as admirably 
printed, but the various works of Captain John Smith, adventurer, poet, 
and historian, are blended in an exceedingly puzzling way, for ascer- 
taining when the history of Virginia begins and the true travels end."

raorocco, uncut. New York : Harper & Brothers, 18t>7 

It ia difficult to believe that two individuals were capable of such 
an astouishing amount of labor, as is evidenced in these volumes. The 
wonderful structures of the race of Indians which once inhabited the 
peninsula of Central America, are here described by pen and pencil, 
with great clearness and minuteness The temples, sculptures, idols, 
utensils, buildings and architecture, of that active, intelligent, and 
almost mythical people, are illustrated by more than seventy engrav- 
ings, from drawings by Mr. C.atherwood. 

2261 Stephens. Incidents of Travel in Yucatan. By John L. 

Stephens. Illustrated by 120 Engravings. 2 vols., 8°, cloth. 
New York : Harper & Brothers, 1858 
One year after the termination of his first explorations, the author 
set out upon the one, the incidents of which are here narrated. So far 
from exhausting the antiquities of the peninsula in his first two vol- 
umes, these add to our astonishment by portraying the gigantic ruins 
of still more imposing structures, erected by the vanished race of pen- 
insular aborigines.

/ Archaeology, as illustrated by the collection in the Blackmore 

Museum, Salisbury; by Edward T. Stevens, Hon. Curator of 
the Blackmore Museum. 8°, cloth^ uncut. London, 1870 

This extraordinary collection of material, representing the labor of 
aboriginal man in Europe and America, is the result of the munificence 
and taste of Mr. William Blackmore, who not only provided the very 
large sum needed for the establishment of the institution, but has 
made several voyages to America to complete its series. Much the 
largest portion of the volume is devoted to the description of the uten- 
sils, weapons, and ornaments manufactured by the American Indians. 
Their habitations, mounds, fortifications, and antiquities are described 
at great length, and with much evident research. The text is accom- 
panied by a large number of wood-cuts, illustrative of the various ob- 
jects forming the collection We may add that having seen Mr. 
Blackmore's Museum at Salisbury, England, we can safely commend 
its study to any American Archaeologist, who may be visiting that city.

This collection of Voyages published at different periods from 1708 
to 1711, was first issued as a monthly serial. It is complete with seven 
narratives of Voyages announced on the serial title page of 708 as never 
before printed in English. This would indicate that Lawsou's Account 
of Carolina was printed from the MSS. of the author, being first printed 
as a portion of this collection.

" Gives a minute detail of all the military operations in both Caro-

This history is, in general, a compilation of the official letters of the 
British officers, both in the sea and land service ; of the American and 
French commanders, which have appeared in the newspapers, with 
Lord Rawdon's campaign, from the Remembrancer and Annual Re- 
gister. The military transactions are collected into a regular order : 
tha author, enters into a very minute detail of his own services, and 
makes a very free comment on those of others, and in particular of 
Lord Cornwallis. His conclusions are not, however, always logically 
deduced, nor, as we conceive, warranted by military science. The 
author appears every where forward on the canvas ; and when his im- 
portance is estimated by the weight of his own remarks, we are tempted 
frequently to remove him to the back ground.

This noble collection has rendered accessible, in a familiar language, 
many of the rarest and most valuable narratives of contests and ad- 
venture among the Indians of America. Some were indeed to be found 
alone in manuscripts jealously guarded, and all were, beside rarity, 
almost as obscure by reason of their Gothic print, equally antique 
Spanish, or barbarous Latin, as the pictographs of the Aztecs, or the 
quipus of the Peruvians whose stories they recounted. Their value 
can best be estimated by the titles of the several volumes, which will 
be found at length under the names of their respective authors.

Tezozomoc Traduite Sur un manuscrit inedit. Par H. Ternaux 
Compans. 2 vols., 8°. 

Paris : Chez P. Janet Librairie, 1853 
History of Mexico by Don Alvaro Tezozomoc. Translated from an 
unpublished manuscript. The only author who mentions Tezozomoc 
is Veytia. In his history of ancient Mexico he informs us that he 
wrote his work in 1598. He had in his youth known the old men who 
had seen the empire of Montezuma in all its glory ; and who revived 
all the traditions with which they were so familiar. Tozozomoc was a de- 



scendant of the Kings of Arzaputzalco, and liis work is important for 
comparison with that of Ixtlilxochitl, a prince of the royal house of 
Tezcuco ; which our author treats as in a state of vassalage to his 
own ancestors. Tezozomoc's history bears the marks of fidelity and 
exactness, although his family pride induces him to exalt too highly 
the supremacy of the Aztecs. It is wholly occupied with the narrative 
of the conquest of the sarrounding nations by the Aztecs, and is brought 
down only to the perioa of the arrival of Cortez.

First, second and tliird part, of the twenty-one books of ceremonies, 
and the Indian monarchy, with the origin and wars of the West Indies, 
of their peoples, discovery, conquest, conversion and other marvelous 
matters of the same land. Juan de Torquemada, whom Alainan calls 
the " Livy of New Spain," studied in Mexico, where he took the habit 
of St. Francis, and became the Provincial of the order for that country. 
He wrote his Indian Monarchy, after having collected everything 
which he could find that related to the history of the country, and the 
customs, manners, laws, &c., of its aboriginal inhabitants. This work 
forms a collection, indispensable to all who desire to know much of the 
ancient history of Mexico, and its inhabitants, as well as to all those 
wrriters who expect to borrow their material from the stores of others. 
The edition of 1733 is the most complete, having been edited by the 
indefatigable Barcia, and is preferred by scholars to the first edition, 
printed iu three volumes at Madrid iu 1613.

History of the Conquest of the Province of Itza, the reduction and

conquered the Indians of Yucatan and Guatemala, has from its extreme 
rarity remained almost unknown. Like most of the Spanish histories 
of affairs in America, it is more largely devoted to the spiritual than 
■ the military conquest of the Indians ; yet it is a valuable repertory of 
facts, relating to the Savages of the peninsula. Only this Primera

The authorship of this exceedingly rare pamphlet, has been attri- 
buted to the personage, whose name is signed to the poem addressed 
to the reader with no authority, I think, beyond that of conjecture. 
The publishiug committee of the Massachusetts Historical Society thus 
ascribed it, in their note to the reprint of the relation, in the third 
volume of their collections. It is a narrative of the battle with the 
Pequods, fought by Captains Mason and Underbill, an account of 
which was written by the last doughty commander, and printed in 
1638, under the title of iV^ews fro7n America. Vincent's relation is of 
even greater rarity than Underhill's.

The niutli, and last, of the Reports of the Indian Charity School es- 
tablislied by Mr. Wheelock. It was originally termed the Moors 
Charity School, commencing in 1754, at Lebanon, and in 1771 trans- 
ferred to Hanover, where it formed the germ of the institution, known 
as Dartmoutlx College. Among the first pupils came young Brant, the 
Mohawk warrior, who afterwards desolated the Wyoming Valley, and 
sat beside the Mohegan Indian, Samson Occum, who preached the 
gospel of peace to the same bloody savages. The fruits of the noble 
* and disinterested labors of Mr. Wheelock, were visible among the 

aborigines for many years after the date of tliis report. At one time 
* twenty-five Indians were receiving instruction in his school. Honored 

be the name of Eleazer Wheelock during all time, as one of the wisest 
and noblest friends of the red man.

The propositions of the learned author in favor of the existence of a 
tribe of Welsh Indians, are so well sustained by veritable evidence, 
and yet so positively known to be untrue, that it makes us doubt the 
value of all ratiocination.

One of the noblest collections ever made by any historical society. It 
is a vast mass of original material, written mostly by border warriors, 
pioneers, voyageurs, and others who saw the events of which they 
wrote. By tar the largest portion relates to the Aborigines who once 
occupied the territory. It is to the intelligence and zeal of the learned 
antiquary, Lyman C. Draper, that the public are indebted lor this model 
of historical collections.

Of this scarce book, very few copies are comfilete or in good condition. 
Having been issued in a remote corner of Northwestern Virginia, and 
designed principally for a local circulation, almost every copy was read 
by a country fijse-side until scarcely legible. Most of the copies lack 
the table of contents. The author took much pains to be authentic, 
and his chronicles are considered by Western antiquarians, to form the 
best collection of frontier life and Indian warfare, that has been printed.

to 750) are devoted to descriptions and illustrations of the savages of 
the Western continents and islands. One hundred and twelve engrav-
