Second Edition (first: Cincinnati: 1853). The compiler of the dictionary was for many years a missionary among the Ottawa and Chippeway tribes of the American middle west. This edition, prepared by Oblate missionary, Albert Lacombe, with the financial assistance of the Canadian government, was intended to be of use to Canadian missionaries in Manitoba and Keewatin. The dictionary was usually issued with Baraga’s A Theoretical and Practical Grammar of the Otchipwe Language, not present here, but it appears to also have been available on its own. An Otchipwe-English dictionary was published the following year. TPL 3326-27. Lande S143. Gagnon I 205. Pilling, Algonquian, pp. 27-28. cfSabin 3247. cfField 75. Bookseller Inventory # elala1637
