Of Plymouth Plantation, 1620-1647

Front Cover
Rutgers University Press, 1952 - History - 448 pages
"For the first time the printed text of Bradford's history has been compared word for word with the original manuscript; for the first time the difficult abbreviations and contractions used by Bradford have been filled out and his archaic and variant spellings made uniform. This edition has a double value: it presents Governor Bradford's text in readable form and it provides contemporary readers with a history of that text and its enduring significance by the historian clearly elect to interpret it"--Inside cover.
