About this Item

Edition limited to 400 copies, this being no. 249, 8vo, 135pp., 2 folding mss. facsimile plates & 4 folding mss. facsimile maps; handsomely printed text in original drab paper covered boards, the spine cracking, with able tape repairs, upper spine end lacking approx. 1/2", the covers slightly bowed, else very good. Miller (1666-1724), appointed "Chaplain to the two Companies of foot in the Colony of Newyorke," arrived in the province in 1692. During his three-year residency, Miller "was the sole officiating Episcopal clergyman in the entire province of New York." He wrote the mss. describing his tenure in the New World while a prisoner of the French on St. Malo, in 1696. Although a version of the manuscript was first published in London, 1843 (and reprinted in the States in 1862), this small volume is the first verbatim appearance of his work.
