1833 American Antiquities Josiah Priest Trail of Tears Indians RACISM Mormons

INCREDIBLE Folding Illustrations / compare@$600



Josiah Priest (1788–1861) was a popular American nonfiction writer of the early 19th century. His books and pamphlets, which presented both standard and speculative history and archaeology sold in the thousands. Although Priest appears to have been poorly educated, he attempted to portray himself as an authority in his books. Priest is often identified as one of the creators of pseudoscientific and pseudohistoric literature.



Although his work was widely read and several of his works were published in multiple editions, his books were characterized by theories that were used to justify the violent domination over both the Native American and African-American peoples. Priest's works were among the most overtly racist of his time. Priest's offensive works help set the stage for the genocide of the Trail of Tears and the defense of slavery that contributed to the conflicts of the American Civil War.
