MDCCIII. 1 New VOYAGES to North AMERICA. Containing an account
of the several nations of that vast continent; their customs, commerce, and
way of navigation upon the lakes and rivers ; the several attempts of the English and French to dispossess one another; with the reasons of the miscarriage of the former; and the various adventures between the French and the Iroquese confederates of England, from 1683 to 1694. A geographical description of Canada, and a natural history of the country, with remarks upon their government, and the interest of the English and French in their commerce. Also a dialogue between the author and a general of the savages, giving a full view of the religion and strange opinions of those people; with an account of the author's retreat to Portugal and Denmark, and his remarks on those courts. To which is added, a Dictionary of the Algonkine language, which is generally spoken in North America. Illustrated with twentythree maps and cuts.
Written in French by the Baron Lahontan, Lord Lieutenant of the French colony at Placentia in Newfoundland, now in England. Done into English. In two volumes.
A great part of which never printed in the original.
London. 8vo. 2 vols. Reprinted in 1735.
First printed in French in this year. Lahontan was a freethinker, and consequently had but little respect for the clergy; it is not therefore to be wondered at that he was persecuted in France, and his work traduced. The character given of the author and of the work by the Jesuits has been adopted by later writers, who ought to have known better. A writer in the North American Review observes, that the Baron seems to have been an ardent and enterprising character, with more wit than discretion, but that his accounts bear every mark of
authenticity, and are quite confirmed by cotemporary as well as subse. 1703.
