Item Description: London : John Russell Smith, 1862., 1862. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1862 Wonders of Invisible World Salem Witch Trials Occult Cotton Mather Puritan INCREDIBLY FASCINATING CONTENTS/ comp@$1k+ Wonders of the Invisible World was a book published in 1693 by Cotton Mather, defending Matherís role in the witchhunt conducted in Salem, Massachusetts, and espousing the belief that witchcraft was an evil magical power. Mather saw witches as tools of the devil in Satanís battle to ďoverturn this poor plantation, the Puritan colonyĒ, and prosecution of witches as a way to secure Godís blessings for the colony. Cotton Mather (1663 Ė 1728) was a socially and politically influential New England Puritan minister, prolific author and pamphleteer. Known for his vigorous support for the Salem witch trials, Mather also left a scientific legacy due to his hybridization experiments and his promotion of inoculation for disease prevention.

Salem Witchcraft; Comprising More Wonders of the Invisible World. Collected by Robert Calef; And Wonders of the Invisible World, By Cotton Mather; Together With Notes and Explanations. Salem: H. P. Ives and A. A. Smith, 1861. xxi, 22-446, 3, 447-450 pp. Reprinted 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-462-4. ISBN-10: 1-58477-462-2. Cloth. 110. This volume collects two important early accounts of the infamous Salem witchcraft trials based on primary sources. Published in 1693, Wonders of the Invisible World by Cotton Mather 1663-1728 is an account of selected trials written at the request of the judges, who wished to address claims of impropriety. Though he believed in witchcraft, Mather was critical of the judges conduct when the trials were underway. After reading the transcripts, however, he concluded that the verdicts rested on ample evidence according to the standards of English and American law. Published in 1700, More Wonders of the Invisible World, Or The Wonders of the Invisible World Displayed by Robert Calef 1648-1719 attacked Mathers account. Skeptical about the existence of witchcraft, he argued for the injustice of the trials and suggested, moreover, that Mather influenced the judges and public opinion. A well-documented and devastating account, it was the first important publication to show that the trials were a miscarriage of justice. This item ships from multiple locations.
