Philadelphia: James A. Bill, 1848. Early reprint. Hardcover. viii, 320 pp., folding 3-panel frontispiece and 4 full-page illustrations (all are handcolored); octavo, original brown cloth with cover ornaments in gilt and blind. Nick to cloth at top of spine, endpapers and blanks quite foxed, text with light scattered foxing, overall about very good. Item #22110

Originally published in 1802 under the title "History of the Discovery of America" and author pseudonym "Rev. James Steward." A very popular and much reprinted work. Dismissed by Howes as "A well-nigh worthless production of a seventeen-year old lad which enjoyed wide favor by an uncritical public." Though apparently not useful as historical source material, the text would seem to have importance as an historical artifact and shaper of prejudices and popular perceptions in that era of American history. Howes T370, Sabin 97196 (for multiple editions).
