Oowahweendahmahgawin owh tabanemenung Jesus Christ, keähnekuhnootuhbeëgahdag anwamand egewh Ahneshenahbag Ojibway anindjig (New Testament Bible in Ojibwa), O’MEARA, FREDERICK AUGUSTUS
49 O’MEARA, FREDERICK AUGUSTUS Oowahweendahmahgawin owh tabanemenung Jesus Christ, keähnekuhnootuhbeëgahdag anwamand egewh Ahneshenahbag Ojibway anindjig (New Testament Bible in Ojibwa)
Toronto Bell & Co. 1874 Hardcover Good 771 pp. 12MO 1
Originally issued in 1856, both printings are scarce. Text entirely in Ojibwa except for the publisher information on the title page and the running chapter heads. Frederick O'Mears (1814-1888) was an Anglican clergyman, missionary and translator. Born in County Wexford, after graduating from Trinity College he was drawn to missionary work and came to Canada in 1838. After several postings he was assigned to Manitoulin Island in Georgian Bay where the British government was trying to resettle large numbers of Ojibwa. He arrived in 1941 and spent 18 years there. He translated a number of works into Ojibwa including The faith and duty of a Christian, 1844; the Book of Common Prayer, 1846; the Four Gospels, 1850; the New Testament, 1854; and the Psalms, 1856. Ultimately, however, the mission failed although the nearby well-established Catholic mission met with some success and O'Meara moved on to other endeavours. This copy is in original sheep rebacked with brown library book tape. A non-circulating ex-library copy with no pocket and with several stamps, a donation label on the front endpaper overlain with a barcode label and square labels on the title page and the first page of text. Paper label on the spine and a large library label on the rear board. The leather is worn and scuffed but solid.
