Cuoq, J. A. (Jean Andre´), 1821-1898 : J.A. Cuoq letters, 1879-1894

Five letters, 1879-1894, from J.A. Cuoq to James Constantine Pilling, an American ethnologist particularly interested in Indian languages, who compiled comprehensive bibliographies on the topic and assembled the renowned library of the Bureau of American Ethnology.,In Cuoq's responses to Pilling's apparent requests for copies of his works, he notes in an 1879 letter that all copies of requested volumes were destroyed in an 1877 fire at Lac-des-Deux-Montagnes. Later notes concern the forwarding of copies of Cuoq's Lexique de la langue iroquoise (published 1882) and Anotc keton (published 1893), which was an appendix to his Grammaire de la langue algonquine.
