About this Item

First edition of this important history of the Moravian Church. Cranz (sometimes given as Crantz) was himself a Moravian missionary, famed for his oft-reprinted history of Greenland; Howes notes that here he covers Moravian activities in Georgia, Carolina, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere from 1734 on, while Sabin adds that Count Zinzendorf's voyages to America are also included. The work is printed in black-letter save for a few Latin words in roman text, with occasional ornamental headers, decorative capitals, and tailpieces. 8vo (18.3 cm, 7.25"). [16], 868, [58] pp. (839?42 lacking). Howes C865; Sabin 17410. Period-style calf framed in blind roll, spine with gilt-stamped title and publication information, raised bands, and blind-tooled compartment decorations (original spine label laid in). Lacking pp. 839?42. Pages age-toned and stained (text entirely legible); last few leaves with edge nicks and small areas of worming, not touching text. Title-page with edge nicks and traces of an early inked inscription in lower outer portion. One leaf with tear from lower margin, extending into text without loss; one leaf with upper outer corner chipped, with loss of a few letters. Final leaf and back free endpaper with edges tattered and early inked doodles; back free endpaper separated. A solid, readable, and far from unhandsome copy despite faults.
