4 Anonymous Anecdotes of Missionary Worthies in the Moravian Church Related by a Father to His Children
Philadelphia American Sunday School Union 1832 First Edition (?) Hardcover Good 
Marbelized papers with brown cloth backstrip. Binding appears to be original to the book. Much edge corner and surface wear with much of the marbleized paper scraped away on the back. There appears to have been a paper label on the spine bit only small remnants remain. If there were any preliminary pages before the title page, they are missing, but there may have been none. No endpapers exist after the last page of text and there is no indication that any have been torn out. The name of a former owner is written in pencil on the front pastedown along with the address Mecklenburg County, Va. The front hinge may have been reglued at some point. Book is square and binding seems secure -- with note about front hinge. Unintentionally humorous presentation of stories about Moravian missionaries. The anecdotes are presented in a conversation between a father and his son and daughter. The language of the children is so stilted that the author may have been better off to have approached these stories without the artifice. The stories deal with foreign lands, Native Americans and African-Americans. I have not been able to find references to the Cherokee, though the date of publication (1832) seems right for some stories about that group. ; B&W Drawings; 24mo 5" - 6" tall; 116 pages
