This extremely rare edition of CAPTURED BY THE INDIANS: Reminiscences of Pioneer Life in Minnesota by Wilhelmina quot;Minniequot; Buce Carrigan we believe to have been published in 1903. Neither a publication date nor a publisher is listed in it. It is 30 pages long; it is in printed wraps with an illustration of a mounted Native American warrior, labeled Baker Co., on the cover; a picture of Carrigan on the verso of the title page; another print of the cover illustration on page 23; a memorial obelisk on the next to last page. The last page contains a short narrative on quot;The Negro Godfrey.quot;
WE BELIEVE THIS EDITION TO BE 1903 DUE TO THE HOLDINGS OF A LIBRARY WITH EXPERTISE IN MINNESOTA HISTORY. THEIR DATE OF 1903 HAS A QUESTION MARK BEHIND IT, INDICATING SOME UNCERTAINTY. OUR COPY ALSO REFLECTS THE MISSPELLING OF BUCE TO BRUCE ON THE COVER OF THAT SAME EDITION. HER NAME IS ALSO MISSPELLED ON THE TITLE PAGE. It is correct under the preface.
OUR CAREFUL RESEARCH HAS REVEALED ONLY TWO OTHER COPIES THAT WE FEEL ARE THE SAME AS THIS EDITION. We do have a copy of the 1912 edition so we have been able to make comparisons of our edition to that, as well as comparisons to the original newspaper serial account.
WorldCat.org states that 17 editions were published between 1907 and 1912 in English and are held by 303 member libraries worldwide. In WorldCat.org holdings there is no mention of a 1903 edition.
The capture and ensuing captivity of Minnie Buce Carrigan was first published in serial form in the Buffalo Lake News, Buffalo Lake, Minnesota, 1903, beginning in the month of January and into the month of February. Dates of publication were: January 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, February 6 and 13. This first-hand account of treatment by Indian captors is riveting, brutal and sad. Missing from the newspaper account are descriptions of the Indian outbreak, the causes of it and an account of Chief Little Crow all of which are in this 1903 edition. These pieces constitute the first three chapters of this edition and are not included in the 1912 edition. While this edition closely follows the newspaper version, there are some editorial changes and seven insertions, both short and long, one running seven hundred words in length, added to this edition. These insertions also appear in the 1912 version. The story of The Negro Godfrey was not in the newspaper account but does appear in this edition.
Condition can be described as fair, at best. Most of the lower corners have small dog ears as do a number of the upper corners. Margin widths are quite variable, a few being only a couple of letter-widths wide. Pagination is irregular and appears to have been used as a guide to the book#39;s assembly. Pages with chapter headings are not numbered. The pages numbered are pages 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 28, 29, and 30. The book is stapled together and several pages in the middle have pulled free of the upper staple, though they are intact and show no serious damage. At the top of page 25, someone has multiplied 78 by 7 in pencil (showing the correct answer of 546). This can probably be removed with an eraser. There are a few faint patches where the press failed to make a clear imprint, but these are not large enough to interfere with reading. Page 4 has a vertical imperfection indicating that the paper had a small crease in it. Again, the text remains legible. The cover shows a small amount of soiling and a rust mark associated with the lower staple. The forward edge of the back cover has a notch missing, about a half inch long and a quarter inch wide. The book has survived for the last one hundred and eighteen years complete and legible throughout despite the fact that it was apparently not valued for most of its existence, as is reflected by its discovery in a stack of unrelated material which was also in rough condition.
While the well-designed cover and the addition of context in the form of several new chapters that do not appear in the newspaper version suggest the intention to produce a book, the omission of the publisher#39;s name, the misspelling of the author#39;s maiden name and the rather slipshod construction, with widely varying margins, may indicate a very small press run. It is possible that only a handful were produced to accommodate the author and the small number was not seen as justifying the editorial attention or the adherence to standards that a larger press run would require.
