"Rara edizione originale" di una importante opera sugli indiani Micmacs della penisola di Gaspé (Canada, provincia di Quebec), dove l’A. esercitò il suo apostolato per 6 anni. <br> "This is an important work as it gives an account of the later Recollect missions in Northeastern Canada and the Province of New Brunswick and contains a remarkable record of the labors of missionaries for the conversion of the Gaspé Indians. The author not only records the results of his own missionary life among the savages inhabiting the banks of the St. Lawrence but gives a very full and interesting account of their peculiar traits of character, their religious rites, mode of life etc. before these became modified by contact with civilization.. Le Clercq claims for the Recollects the honor of being the first to compile a dictionary of the languages of the Indians in Canada". Così Church,717. Cfr. Brunet,III,916 - Graesse,IV,138 - Field,902. Solo qualche lieve uniforme arross. e fiorit., altrim. esemplare ben conservato.
