B. - this copy lacks the second map: "of North America, showing the territory 'now' (1844) occupied by the natives, & also denoting the boundaries of the several Yearly Meetings of Friends in that land.)

There is then a 2-page List of the Authorities for this Publication followed by the Introduction & a short description of the territory occupied before the European Colonization. This is an interesting historical document detailing the attempts of the Friends to promote a more "upright, peaceable & conciliatory course towards the native inhabitants" whom they hoped would reciprocate with a full reception of Christianity. It also contains some responses made to the Friends by Native Americans. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 247 pages. there are a few marks to the borders around the map & to its (blank) reverse.
