Albany: Hoffman and White, 1833. Second edition. Hardcover. 1833, Second Edition, revised. Hardcover, 8vo., contemporary calf boards rebacked, gilt titles, new endpapers. 400 pp. Illustrated with engraved fold-out frontis of Mount Jolliet, fold-out map, one plate, an in-text illustration showing the Great Stone Calendar of the Mexicans and a few other small in-text illustrations. Leftmost third of the frontis is lacking. Mild browning and foxing throughout. strong binding; light bubbling to the leather boards. A wild ride, with sections on ancient and contemporary Judaism, Cannibals in Americas, a lot focused on Ohio and what would be known as the Mound Builder Myth. An incredibly anti-Native American book and one that also includes an early critique of the Book of Mormon, as Priest writes "This work is ridiculous enough, it is true; as the whole book of Mormon bears the stamp of folly, and is a poor attempt at an imitation of the Old Testament."
