Horden, Rt. Rev. John (1828-1893). A Grammar of The Cree Language, Revised Edition in Plain Cree. London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1913. pp. 209. 12mo. Bound in original olive-green cloth with black lettering and decoration to spine and front board. Rev. John Horden (1828-1893) was the first bishop of the Anglican disocese of Moosenee. He translated and caused to be printed many works in Canadian Indian dialects. This title was first published in 1881 by the S.P.C.K.; our offering is the 1913 revised edition. The extremities show the slightest rubbing and edgewear to the boards; internally, a small corner of the ffep has been excised (not resulting in any loss of text); some tide marks confined exclusively to the top margin of front endpaper and pastedown. The contents remain clean and unmarked with tight, sound binding. Overall, very good+ copy of this increasingly scarce title. See Peel (3rd Edition) #983. Rt. Rev. John Horden (1828-1893) was the first bishop of the Anglican disocese of Moosenee. He translated and caused to be printed many works in Canadian Indigenous dialects. Hardcover. (#95) $750.00
