About this Item

Original boards. 8vo. Xl, 370 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Large fold-out frontispiece map labeled "Copied from the Antiquities of Mexico in the British Museum, 1835". An adapted and expanded version of Simonís early work titled "Hope of Israel: Presumptive Evidence That the Aborigines of the Western Hemisphere Are Descended from the Ten Missing Tribes of Israel. " Though this piece had an important impact in certain circles, including early Mormon theologians, a review of Simonís early piece suggests that her theories may not have been widely accepted. "Mrs. Barbara Anne Simon's ĎHope of Israel, or Presumptive Evidence that the Aborigines of the Western Hemisphere are descended from the ten missing tribes of Israel, most respectably attest her ingenuity and research; but it is improbable to suppose that America (the Atlanteide of Plato) was not peopled long before the presumed migration, and the proofs of Mrs. Simon's hypothesis are not of sufficient exclusive relation to the subject. " (Gentlemanís Magazine and Historical Chronicle, 1829) Subjects: Indians Ė Origin. Lost tribes of Israel. Light rubbing to extremities of boards, tear to corner of endpage, otherwise very fresh and clean. Great condition. (KH-1-16). Bookseller Inventory # 32082
