Trustees Waterman and Jacobs’ Publication

Two Jacob Leisler Institute Board members have seen an earlier book publication go into its second print run (actually, printing-on-demand). Kees-Jan Waterman and Jaap Jacobs, together with third editor Charles Gehring, published Indianenverhalen: De vroegste beschrijvingen van Indianen langs de Hudsonrivier (1609-1680) in 2009. The first printing of 1,500 copies was sold out. While the main title is difficult to translate into English, the subtitle explains that it is a collection of almost all Dutch accounts of Native Americans in the Hudson Valley. The transcriptions have not been modernized or changed otherwise, and are not annotated. For a description (in Dutch) and ordering information, see:…/geschiedenis/indianenverhalen/
