Simpson and Co., and Williams and Whiting, New York; L. Deare, printer, 1810. 411 p. Contemporary sheep (worn, spine breaking). The considerably revised second edition of Smith's important essay on race, in which he demonstrated, by means of natural philosophy and without recourse to scriptural authority, the truth of the Mosaic doctrine of a single creation. There is much emphasis on the Negro, as well as a 60-page appendix on the American Indian entitled "Of the Natural Bravery and Fortitude of the American Indians--or The History of their Manners as it relates to their Military Expeditions, and their Conduct to those who are Taken Captive in War."
