4 Leiby, Adrian C. The Early Dutch and Swedish Settlers of New Jersey. [Volume 10, The New Jersey Historical Series].
Princeton, NJ: D. Van Nostrand Company, Inc., 1964. First Edition. 
Octavo, navy blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, map illus. endpapers, xiv + 139 pp. Very Good+, with neat former-owner signature, lightly rubbed edges, and slight foxing (age darkened spotting); in a Very Good, price-clipped dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges, in protective mylar wrapper. From dust jacket: Few people are fully aware of the tremendous influences that the early Dutch and Swedish settlers had on New Jersey. It was the Dutch who first explored and settled in the state in 1624, and who are responsible for the immortal character of Rip Van Winkle, born out of Washington Irving's wonderful imagination. Traces of New Netherland have remained a part of our culture: we still talk of eating crullers, or cranky children, of stoops; we still admire the Dutch colonial houses and the Dutch churches of northeastern New Jersey; and we still approve of the plain Dutch virtues of the people who built them. Remnants of early Swedish settlements can still be found in South Jersey. There is the beautiful Old Swede's Church in Swedesboro; Swedish and Finnish names are on the gravestones in the cemeteries there, at St. George's Church (Churchtown) and at Friesburg; the sleepy town of Repaupo still carries the reputation of being New Jersey's most Swedish community; the Swedish (and Finnish) names of Mullica and Steelman are remembered in New Jersey towns and rivers; and a few Swedish family names are still borne proudly by the people of Gloucester and Salem Counties. In this enjoyable book, Adrian C. Leiby follows the activities of New Jersey's early Dutch and Swedish settlers from Hendrik Hudson's journey in 1609 -- when he sent several members of the ship Half Moon to explore the Jersey side of New York Harbor -- through the surrender of New Netherland to the English, and the Dutch occupation of New Sweden. He then goes on to show how the Dutchand Swedes began to adapt themselves to the English way of life, and vice versa...
