About this title

Synopsis:

Samuel Sewall (1652-1730) was a judge, businessman, and printer in the Province of Massachusetts Bay, best known for his involvement in the Salem witch trials, for which he later apologized, and his essay The Selling of Joseph (1700), which criticized slavery. He served for many years as the chief justice of the Massachusetts Superior Court of Judicature, the province's high court. Sewall's diary is considered a unique insight into the life of a pious Puritan, and an important historical record documenting the early days of the Massachusetts community.

Shipping Terms:

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
