Spine sunned, with 2 cm tear to front joint, abrasion to spine, internally clean and crisp. The Reverend Edward Francis Wilson (1844-1915) was a prominent Anglican missionary and clergyman who emigrated from England to Canada in 1865 with the intention of becoming a farmer. However, he decided to undertake religious studies instead, and attended Huron College, in London, Ontario. He was ordained a deacon in 1867 and joined the Anglican Church Missionary Society serving indigenous communities in Sarnia, Sault Ste. Marie and surrounding areas, eventually becoming principal of Shingwauk Indian Residential School, where he served from 1873 to 1892. In preparing this Grammar, Rev. Wilson relied on an earlier French language Grammar. He notes, in the Introduction, the occasional similarities between the Ojebway and Hebrew languages. This is a later printing of an edition "Reprinted at the request of Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development." OCLC 259252898. See Pilling Algonquian p. 530 for first edition.
