“The chief storehouse of material on the history of Colonial New York!” (Larned)

 

Edmund Bailey O’Callaghan was a 19th-century Irish-born journalist who is most-remembered for his iconic work on the history of New York. This work, “Documentary History of the State of New York” is one of the most important historical works on New York and begins with early colonial Americana up until the then present, 19th-century.

 

These large, impressive tomes cover a wide variety of topics including a slave census, state of the Anglo-American church, discussions on Quakers and Moravians, voyages of Gideon Hawley, Chaplain’s expeditions, and the Dutch settlements in New York. It features important illustrations depicting city views, architecture, forts and city walls, maps, town roads, and much more.

 

This work is the first edition under a new title. According to Larned, this work is

“a collection of miscellaneous documents, correspondence and other material relating to the colonial history of New York, published by the state after being collected and arranged by one of its leading archivists. Special attention may be called to the ‘Leister Papers’ and ‘Johnson Papers’ in v2 to the various papers on ecclesiastical relations. This series is one of the chief storehouses of material on the history of colonial New York.”
