A Brief Narrative of the Captivity and Sufferings of Lt. Nathan'l Segar, Who was Taken Prisoner by the Indians and Carried to Canada During the Revolutionary War

[1940]: (Charles P. Everitt Associates), [1940]. Reprint. 1 double leaf folded map. Wrappers. 16mo 6" - 7" tall. 3, xxx, 46 pages. Good+. Shallow chips around yapp edges of covers.

History of the raid of Shelbourne, NH by Tomhegan and his band in 1781--considered the last "Indian raid" in New England. Here Segar was captured, along with another prominent citizen, and marched off to Canada where he was sold into British captivity. Originally published in 1825, this reprint by noted antiquarian bookseller Charles Everitt was done in an edition of 150 copies. This edition prints for the first time an historical Preface by Winthrop Duncan, a map drawn by Donald Gardner showing the route of the Indians and the towns raided, and the text of a contemporaneous letter written only five weeks after the raid. This reprint is faithful to the style of the original edition, and the map is printed on paper from an old account book dated 1764.
