Adrian S. Edwards (notes)
A history of printing in the Eastern Algonquian groups of languages of North America, with a check-list of thirty-eight items in the British Library collection printed between 1634 and 1851. The majority of speakers of these languages were traditionally located around the Great Lakes, the north-eastern coast of the United States, and Atlantic Canada, the zone broadly classified as the North-eastern Woodland Culture Area. The languages covered are: Micmac, Maliseet-Passamaquoddy, Eastern Abenaki (including Penobscot), Massachusett (including Pokanoket/Wampanoag), Narragansett, Quiripi (including Unkechaug), Mahican (or Mohican, 'Stockbridge') and Unami Delaware (including Unalachtigo and Unami Jargon).
