Description:

Ward (1769?1823) was a printer and a missionary in Serampore, in the Bengal region of India. He learned printing in Derby, England, and in 1799 went to the Danish settlement in Serampore where he printed and supervised the printing of translations of the scriptures into => Bengali, Tamil, and more than 20 other languages. He somehow also found time to preach and do other missionary work. Health concerns forced him to leave India in 1818, but he returned in 1821. During his years away he lectured and travelled in the U.S. and England, raising money for his mission. The present collection of letters first appeared in London in 1821 and this is its first American edition. His letters have much to say about his work and the native population; he is acutely aware of => the position and treatment of women and in more than one letter addresses the issue. Provenance: The Rochester Divinity School, which in the 19th century trained more than a few noteworthy missionaries to India. 12mo. 250 pp. Shoemaker 7568. Original boards covered in blue-green paper; rebacked in the style of the era. Ex-library with 19th-century stamp on title and librarian's pencilling on verso of same. Foxing throughout.
