With an original 1931 press run of only 1750, surviving copies of "Land Ho! 1620" are now either in archives or exist as valued collector's editions. Acclaimed by the Cape Cod Pilgrim Memorial Association in 1957 as 'the most authentic, interesting and best written book on the voyage of the Pilgrims and their lives', Nickerson's work is now available in this handsome paperback edition, complete with all the original illustrations and maps. Nickerson scholar Delores Bird Carpenter updated all one hundred and seventy nine annotations, checking them against original sources. In addition she has prepared a new bibliography and an extensive, new introduction that places "Land Ho! 1620" in its historical and historiographical context.
