by Roger Williams. Softbound, 205 pages, 5" x 7". Ordained a minister after his graduation from Cambridge University in 1627, Roger Williams emigrated to Boston with his wife in 1631. After being expelled from Massachusetts in 1635 for his "new and dangerous ideas", he bought land from the Narragansett Indians and established a new settlement, which became Rhode Island. This colony was the first to sanction religious freedom. Having a unique relationship with the Indians, Williams learned their language and compiled this early linguistic treatise, the first of its kind in the New World.
