Taken from Campanius' Vocabula Mahakuassica, this volume features a list of over 100 words identified as the only known vocabulary of Susquehannock or Andaste, the Iroquoian language spoken along the Susquehanna River in Maryland and Pennsylvania. The edition follows the version translated by Peter S. Duponceau in 1834, with added material from the original 1696 Swedish edition. Discrepancies between the two editions are fully noted and catalogued in the appendix. New to the second edition are additional fragments of data: a single word from George Alsop's A Character of the Province of Maryland (1666), another single word from Benjamin Smith Barton's New Views of the Origin of the Tribes and Nations of America (1798) which purports to be from the Susquehannock remnant at Conestoga, and incidental statements from the Jesuits of Canada and the Moravian Bishop Commerhoff which are our only evidence of the Iroquoian languages of Erie and Scahento, spoken in Northern Pennsylvania.
