Small 8vo. Stiff green printed wrappers. 11pp (one side only). Maps. Very good. First edition. Published on cheap, acidic paper, this pamphlet is invariably found in poor, inferior condition--but this copy is exceptionally tight and clean, with only mild age toning to the text block and a refreshing lack of edge tears. Colby (1841-1909) wrote a study on early Indian languages on the Atlantic coast, but here champions the then-popular theory that a circa 1000 A.D. Viking town once existed on the Massachusetts coast, north of Cambridge.
