Jackson, Francis
History of the Early Settlement of Newton, County of Middlesex, Massachusetts from 1639-1800 with a Genealogical Register of Its Inhabitants Prior to 1800.
Boston: Stacy and Richardson, 1854. Octavo. 556p. with original hand colored map in beautiful condition with 1" closed tear at gutter. Covers Newtown before it became Cambridge. Section on Indians notes that Indian property and church (with fifty Indian communicants) was slowly eradicated but not how. The author does note: "The Indians are generally considered, by white people, inferior and [in] a degraded situation and treated accordingly." There was limited slavery but their mistreatment led the black slaves to join with the Indians. Much of the rest of the books is noting the early families through the end of the 18th Century. Some of the dates are underlined in ink toward the back of the book but the pages are clean throughout. A near fine copy bound in publisher's black embossed cloth, spine lettering gilt. Very nice.
Bookseller: Alcuin Books [USA]
