First edition of the famous ranger's account of North America. A good deal of space is taken up with the description of the various Indian tribes, including an account of the White Indians of the Mississippi. In his historical and geographical portion he seems to have had a special antipathy to the Jews, for he finds them in New York, Rhode Island, and other places, and speaks of them in contemptuous terms. Of Rhode Island especially he says that "the Province is infested with a rascally set of Jews. . . who are a pest not only to this, but the neighbouring provinces." Rogers at the publication of this was alone in London, and neglected, and may have had some unpleasant experiences to account for his prejudices.
