    2. A PDF of this original edition is available on .Knowles's Memoir of Roger Williams (1834) was the first comprehensive biography of Roger Williams.

Although the book contained errors of both fact and interpretation, it was a major step forward in understanding the life and thought of this important Anglo-American thinker.
