“Many of the materials for the following work were collected while the Author was traveling in primitive apostolic style in different parts of the great American valley. . . . This book was written in a western log-cabin; in a room which, at one and the same time, answered for a study, a parlor, a sitting-room, a dining-hall, bed-room, and kitchen.” A nice Detroit imprint, published in the same year as the first five editions of this title came from the press of printers Geiger & Wood (all published by Benjamin Wood). Quaw was evidetly a popular Dutch Reformed minister in Michigan; he died in the sinking of the Kent on Lake Erie in 1845. Light, fairly large damp-stain throughout, appropriate to a book on this subject (despite Quaw’s argument for the Biblical fitness of sprinkling). American Imprints Inventory (Michigan) 552.
