Maulmain, Burma: American Baptist Mission Press, 1845. 40pp. including errata slip. 12mo. Dbd. Very good. Maulmain, the nexus of British power in Burma in the mid- 18th century, was also the headquarters of the American Baptist Mission in the region. The mission at Maulmain was founded in 1827 by Adoniram Judson (1788-1850). A press was established there in 1830 and was kept busy printing the Bible in various languages and dialects, along with grammars, textbooks, and books on mathematics, until it was transferred to Rangoon in 1862. Judson spent more than thirty years working in Burma, returning briefly to the United States in 1845, the year in which this pamphlet was produced. This report provides information regarding the activities of the Baptist Mission Society throughout Burma, the progress made at the Theological Seminary at Karen, an accounting of the funds of the Society, and their constitution. Although OCLC lists several 19th-century issues from the Maulmain press, scattered among many institutions, no copy of this pamphlet is listed. (Inventory #: WRCAM29129)
