Scope and Contents

This manuscript consists of a typescript of 202 pages, along with a ledger containing handwritten pages 203-265.  There is also a rejection letter from the University of Chicago to Crawford regarding his manuscript, dated March 25, 1902, as well as a handwritten note from Mrs. Crawford regarding the manuscript, dated April 1902.

The manuscript was described as “a much larger work than Crawford’s The Patriarchal Dynasties [1877], giving besides the ancient annals of the Hebrews, those also of the Chinese, of Babylon, Egypt, Persia and India.” [Foster, Fifty Years in China, p. 312]
