Among the main translators of the Bible into Cherokee in the 19th century were Samuel A. Worcester, a medical missionary, and the Rev. Stephen Foreman, a Cherokee Presbyterian minister and politician, born in Georgia in 1807, the son of John Anthony Foreman, of Scotch descent, and his Cherokee wife Wattie. He attended Union Theological Seminary in Virginia and Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. The first complete New Testament in this language came from the press of the American Bible Society with a publication date of 1860, but it seems not to have really been published until 1862. Prior to that the individual books of the N.T. were published separately and at times bound as composite N.T.s or simply as composite Gospels. => This is the first printing of ANY of the Epistles of Paul in Cherokee, here in Sequoyah's syllabary (generally called the "Cherokee alphabet") and printed at the famous Park Hill mission press. 12mo (16 cm; 6.25"). 24 pp. Pilling, Proof-sheets, 1214; Newberry Library, Ayer Indians, Cherokee-15; not in Darlow & Moule. Also see North & Nida, Book of a Thousand Tongues (1972), 215 for the publication of the various books of the Bible. Folded, never cut, never bound. Light dampstaining and foxing. A good, decent copy and excellent for teaching purposes about this mission press. Bookseller Inventory #
