A Harmony of the Gospels in Delaware, Volume I:
These two volumes are an edition of the Delaware translation of a Harmony of the four Gospels of the New Testament that was done by the Baptist missionary Ira D. Blanchard aided by a young interpreter named James Conner and very likely one or more others. Blanchard's title was, in shortened form: The history of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The book was printed in the years 1837 to 1839. The text is presented in a four-line format, including the spelling as printed, a transcription into phonemic spelling, a translation of this, and the original source text. The language is specifically what was historically the Southern Unami dialect of Delaware and is now called Lenape. It is the heritage language of the Delaware Tribe of Indians (Bartlesville, Okla.) and the Delaware Nation of Western Oklahoma (Anadarko).
Volume 1 includes an introduction and lists of abbreviations and other conventions.
The two volumes form a continuous whole; they are separately issued because of production requirements.
