    Rinderknecht 49189. Sabin 42629, for the 1836 Canadian edition (unlocated). This edition not in Sabin, but describes Luckenbach as a member of the Delaware tribe into whose language the work is translated, but more likely he was a Moravian missionary. There are English and Indian title pages, an English preface, plus English selection headings in the table of contents. Selections prepared for Indian youth are uncommon.
