Spine ends minimally chipped, some rubs, chips to edges; interior clean and tight.This is the April 1971 issue of The Palimpsest, a monthly published by the State Historical Society of Iowa.

Moershel" by Petersen; "Life in the Amana Colony" by Albert Shaw; "Study of Religious Communism" by Richard T. Ely; "Eighty-nine Years of Collective Living" by Millard Milburn Rice; "Life in Amana" by Lulu MacClure; and "Amana" by Petersen. An outgrowth of the German Lutheran church, the Amana Colony was a a 19th-century religious utopia located about 20 miles northwest of Iowa City. The colony comprised seven villages along the Iowa River, founded by German mystics who traced their religious ancestry to the German Pietistic movement dating to 1714. Known as the "Society of True Inspirationists," the Amana society was founded in 1854. The communal society lived on 26,000 acres of Iowa farmland, apart from American society, until 1932, when it was incorporated, organized for profit, and its members formally abandoned their isolationist traditions. The Amana Colony is now a major tourist attraction. 63 pages, profusely illustrated with B&W photos, drawings, and maps. An excellent copy of this hard-to-find issue. Size: 5.25 x 8".
