New York: American Bible Society, 1856. Hardcover. Second edition of this rather scarce book. Except for a one page index and two page key to the orthography the text is entirely in the Native American Ojibwa language. Bound in contemporary brown leather with blind design to covers and black title label on spine. Binding is worn, bumped, and rubbed. Crack to spine label. Front cover is somewhat loose but still holding. Text block is tight. Interior pages are generally clean, with browning to edges of first and last few pages and very light browning to many pages that does not affect legibility. Slight rippling to pages from being tightly bound. Bookplate of George John Abdou, Jr. on front pastedown. A very good copy. About 4.5 x 7 inches. 717 pages. Very Good.
