Minot, great great grandson of George Richards Minot, author of the CONTINUATION of Hutchinson's histories published in two volumes in Boston in 1798-1803 and a separate history of Shays' Rebellion. Hutchinson was the last colonial governor of Massachusetts, fleeing the colony with the onset of the Revolution. The first two volumes of his work are here present in their second and first editions respectively. The final volume of Hutchinson's .HISTORY., which was published for the first time in 1828 from his manuscript, is also present here in its first edition. Because of the erratic printing history of Hutchinson's work, sets such as this are quite difficult to assemble. Notes: QDB: No sets of these three volumes/editions on ABE.
