For the period of the Dutch rule, see L. B. O'Callaghan's History of New Netherland (1846) ; John Romeyn Brodhead's History of the State of New York (2nd vol., 1853, 1871) ; E. P. Tanner, The Province of New Jersey (1908) , the most thorough study of the period from 1664 to 1738; Edgar J. Fisher, New Jersey as a Royal Province 1738 to 1776 (191I), an excellent account of the closing years of the colonial period ; Samuel Smith's History of the Colony of Nova Caesarea, or New Jersey (1765 ; 2nd ed., 1877), still one of the best accounts of the colonial period, and particularly valuable on account of its copious extracts from the sources, many of which are no longer accessible ; see, also, William W. Whitehead's "The English in East and West Jersey, 1664-1689" (in vol. iii. of Justin Winsor's Narrative and Critical His tory of America), and Sydney G. Fisher, The Quaker Colonies; a Chronicle of the Proprietors of the Delaware (1919). Other useful con tributions are A. D. Mellick, Story of an Old Farm; or, Life in New Jersey in the 18th Century (Somerville, N.J., 1889), full of interesting
details ; F. B. Lee and others, New Jersey as a Colony and as a State (4 vol., with an additional biographical volume, rather unevenly pro portioned, and inaccurate as to details) ; C. R. Erdman, The New Jer sey Constitution of 1779 (1929), a critical study ; I. S. Mulford, Civil and Political History of New Jersey (1851) ; W. A. Whitehead, East Jersey under the Proprietary Governments (New Jersey Historical Society Collections, vol. 1., 1875) ; W. R. Fee, Transition From Aristoc racy to Democracy in New Jersey from 1789-1829 (Somerville, 1933) W. E.

Halford, Wood row Wilson and New Jersey made over (1912) ; New Jersey Politics During the Period of the Civil War and Reconstruction (1924). A local history of some interest is South Jersey, a History 1664-1924 (5 vol., 1924) , edit. by Alfred M. Heston. See also the Collections and other publications of the New Jersey Historical Society.
