About this Item

BISHOP, George. New-England Judged, By the Spirit of the Lord.Containing a Brief Relation of the Sufferings of the People Call'd Quakers in New-England, From the Time of Their First Arrival There in the Year 1656 to the Year 1660.Second Part, Being a Farther Relation of the Cruel and Bloody Sufferings.From Anno 1660, to Anno 1665.With an Appendix, Containing the Writings of Several of the Sufferers.Also, an Answer to Cotton Mather's Abuses of the Said People, in His Late History of New-England.London: Printed and Sold by T. Sowle, 1703-02. [6],498,212,[11],[3]pp. Half antique calf and marbled boards. Very good. Sabin 5631. Church 571,598 (refs). Howes B481. Second edition of Bishop's work, but the first combined edition of the two parts issued separately in 1661 and 1667, and the first edition to contain the appendix, Truth and Innocency Defended; Against Falsehood and Envy., by John Whiting, which has its own separate titlepage and imprint. Bishop's work is one of the great and reliable accounts of the Quaker persecutions in New England. While himself a resident of England, he was in receipt of correspondence form Friends in America, much of which forms the basis of this work. On December 19, 1660, the Colony of Massachusetts sent to Prince Charles a petition defending the handing of three Friends in their legal jurisdiction. Bishop was much incensed by this attempted defense, and this catalogue of horrors was the result. "Most exhaustive contemporary indictment of God-fearing Puritans driven by insensate religious fervor to sickening brutalities against other religious fanatics who dared to differ from themselves. Witch-hunting was bad; this was worse" - Howes. Bookseller Inventory # 30829
