[This volume has the distinction of being the first book printed in America by William Bradford. The evidence as to this is set forth in an extended note in Mr. Hildeburn's “Issues of the Press in Pennsylvania," where this book is given the second place. In calling it the “first book," we must except, of course, the little Almanack of 1685, which was printed by Bradford earlier in the same year. Budd himself had settled in Burlington, N.J., in 1678, and owned 5,000 acres of land, which cost him £100. His book is not a religious treatise, as are so many books of the period, but it is a good account of the country and its resources, written with a view of inducing settlers to make their homes in the country. At the end is the translation of “The Dying Words of Ockanichon,” who died in Burlington ; also an account of a Conference with the Indians at Burlington

and other places.- Catalogue.) 5400 Bullock (William). Virginia Impartially examined, and left
