About this Item

8vo. pp. [2], 450. Bound in period panel-stamped brown publisher’s cloth. The binding is solid with some rubbing to the head caps and to the corner tips of the boards. A spot of white paint or ink is visible on the spine. The inside front cover contains a book plate and a tiny bookseller’s ticket. A second ticket is present on the inside rear cover. The lower corner on a couple of leaves is creased. Pages are otherwise generally clean. This volume contains 1.) Robert Calef’s "More Wonders of the Invisible World" (first published in London, 1700), apparently reprinting the Boston 1828 edition. A facsimile of the 1828 title page follows the primary title. 2.) Cotton Mather’s "Wonder’s of the Invisible World" (p. 375-446) with a facsimile of the shortened 1693 third London edition. Cotton Mather, Minister of the North Church in Boston wrote his "Wonders of the Invisible World" to help stave off doubt over witchcraft trials following the Salem hysteria. Robert Calef’s "More Wonders of the Invisible World" (first published in 1700) is an attack on Mather’s position. [Coumont F50.1; Cornell, p. 103]. Bookseller Inventory # 000596
