Title-pages printed in red and black.Title pages some browned and stained along the margins, inner margin stregnthened. Some toning to the leaves but not badly foxed.

Howes notes that this is based chiefly on Mather's Marginalia and Oldmixon's British Empire in America. DNB calls Neal (1678-1743) the Historian of the Puritans This work was so well received in the colonies, that Neal was awarded an honorary degree from Harvard University in 1721. Learned notes: "[Neal's] work was superior to anything of the kind that preceded it. His attitude is that of one who wishes to remain impartial. He deals chiefly with political, religious, and military questions, but has an interesting chapter, largely condensed from Josselyn, describing the state of New England; and he has paid some attention to legislative history. His style is often sprightly and he displays a sense of humor. For some aspects of the revolution of 1688- 1689 his work is still useful.". Bookseller Inventory # 38402
