About this Item

Fourth Edition. Albany: Printed by Hoffman & White, 1834. Octavo, bound in full contemporary plain calf with red leather spine label. [i-iii] iv-viii, [9]-400 pp. Frontispiece engraving and one folding map. Covers worn and scuffed, with rear joint cracked.

".We have gathered such evidence as induces a belief that America was, anciently, inhabited with partially civilized and agricultural nations, surpassing in numbers its present population. This, we imagine, we prove, in the discovery of thousands of the traits of the ancient operations of men over the entire cultivated parts of the continent, in the forms, and under the character of mounds and fortifications, abounding particularly in the western regions." (from the Preface). Bookseller Inventory # 11883
