About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Exodus: or the second book of Moses. Translated into the Cherokee language..

Description:

A scarce Park Hill imprint, entirely in the Cherokee language and using Sequoyah's syllabary (generally called the "Cherokee alphabet"). Hargrett states that "printing of the volume [of Exodus] was not completed until some time in 1855." The translators were Samuel Austin Worcester (1798?1859) and Stephen Foreman (1807?81). As a young man living with his parents in New England, Worcester had met and become friends with Buck Oowatie, a Cherokee whose name among Anglos was Elias Boudinot. Worcester studied for the ministry and after he had been ordained, he requested a post among the Cherokee. Once there he set to introducing printing, newspapers, and expanded literacy using Sequoyah's syllabary. Foreman was born in Georgia of a Cherokee mother and a white father. He was educated at Union Seminary, Princeton Seminary, and Marysville College (Tenn.), and was ordained in 1835. He made the trek from his homeland to the West with the Cherokee, and spent his life at and near the Park Hill mission. Tall, narrow 12mo (17 cm; 6.75"). 152 pp. Darlow & Moule 2441; Hargrett, Oklahoma, 159; Gilcrease 49; Foreman 7; Pilling, Iroquoian, 171; North & Nida, Book of a Thousand Tongues (1972), 215; Pilling, Proof-sheets, 4207. Removed from a bound volume, last two pages supplied (along with duplicates of integral pp. 145?50) from a taller, never bound copy. Supplied leaves with light waterstaining and loose and pp. 146?50 of main textblock also loose; early and late leaves of textblock stained, browned, soiled. Far from a perfect example but complete, useful, and, made up as it is, additionally illustrative of some aspects of handpress printing. Bookseller Inventory #
