The controversy touching the Old Stone Mill in the town of Newport, Rhode-Island. With remarks introductory and conclusive

Newport: Charles E. Hammett, Jr.; [Mason & Pratt, printers], 1851. 12mo, pp. 91, [1]; wood-engraved frontispiece, 2 wood engravings in the text (1 full-page); original printed tan wrappers; soiled, apparently removed from a binding; ink reference on front wrapper in biro; good or better. For years thought to be evidence of the Norsemen having been in Newport before Columbus's first voyage, recent carbon dating and a careful study of printed and manuscript records suggests that the mill was built sometime before 1677 by Rhode Island's first governor, Benedict Arnold.
