About this Item

Minot (1758?1802), a respected Boston judge, meant this work to be a continuation of Thomas Hutchinson's history of Massachusetts-Bay, which was published in 1764. While he originally intended his account to reach the start of the Revolutionary War, he only made it to 1765 before he passed away; the second volume, which covers 1748?65, was posthumously published in 1803. Evidence of Readership: Numerous pencilled marginal notes, usually one word or a date "tagging" the contents of a paragraph. Provenance: Ink signature of Enoch Ponder dated 1841; later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 8vo (21.8 cm; 8.625"). 2 vols. I: viii, [1], 10?304 pp. II: vii, [2], 10?222 pp. ESTC W30543; Evans 34118; Howes M-650; Sabin 49321; on vol. 2, see: Shaw & Shoemaker 4659. 18th-century acid-stained calf with attractive gilt black and red leather labels and gilt triple ruling on spine, board edges stamped in blind, all edges speckled blue; moderate rubbing, one volume's hinges and joints cracked, the usual glue action on endpapers, two torn, one partially detached. Marked and ex-library as above; call number labels on spines, bookplates, pencilled call numbers on title-page versos. Moderate age-toning with offsetting from binding, some foxing, and the occasional spot; one leaf repaired of old, a few with creased corners. Bookseller Inventory # 36430
