Item Description: Thomas and John Fleet, Boston, 1769. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Good. First Edition [and Only?]. Collates complete: [2], ii, 575 pp. As stated in the Preface, "The papers are intended to support and elucidate the principal facts related in the first part of the History of Massachusets-Bay, and may serve as an Appendix to it." These papers were part of a cache of Hutchinson's personal collection of historical documents, which were destroyed by an angry Boston mob when they stormed his house. He makes reference to this when he states that the original papers "were irrecoverably lost by an unfortunate event, sufficiently known." Overall good condition, and in the original binding. The leather is worn at the extrems; leather cracking and loss at head and foot of spine. The boards are detached, and is lacking the front and back blanks. There are some discreet notations from a contemporary scholar in brown and red ink. Pages are clean; I can find no foxing. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000827

Item Description: Thomas & John Fleet, Boston, New England, 1764. Full Leather. Book Condition: Good+ binding. First Edition. [4], iv, 566 pp. Full bound in early speckled calf with title label; spine is darkened and desiccated but has been stabilized; front board has been discreetly reattached; very occasional pencil bracketing in the margins; a few instances of contemporary ink underlining; evidence of a removed bookplate on the front pastedown. A Good or better copy of a scarce and important work. Historian John Fiske calls it, "One of the most admirable histories ever written by an American" (Essays). In his catalog of books relating to early American history, E. D. Church says of Hutchinson's work, "[it] will always stand as of the highest authority." This is the first volume of the first history of the Massachusetts-Bay Colony. The continuation was published in 1767; and the conclusion was published posthumously in the early 19th century.

The History of the Colony of Massachusets-Bay,: HUTCHINSON, Thomas

Item Description: Thomas & John Fleet, Boston, 1769. [4],iv,566; [4],iv,539; [2],ii,576pp. plus later wood-engraved frontispiece of "Hutchinson House." Bound to style in half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt with leather labels. Titlepage of second volume with some slight loss, affecting several letters, neatly repaired; titlepage of third volume with minor loss of blank corner, neatly repaired. Minor foxing and toning. The first edition of this classic Massachusetts history, published in three separate volumes. The first volume discusses the early years of the colony from first settlement in 1628 until 1691. The second volume covers Massachusetts from the 1691 charter until 1750, and includes an index to both volumes. The third volume was published by Hutchinson to support and elucidate the principal facts related in the first two volumes of the History of Massachusetts Bay, and may serve as an appendix to it. According to Sabin, this third volume is "a necessary adjunct to Hutchinson's History ." "Hutchinson's History of Massachusetts-Bay accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the 'tyrannical disposition' of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's 'harpies.' Hutchinson's History acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self-interested groups" - ANB. Thomas Hutchinson (1711-80), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773 and a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves, but the third volume acts as a valuable appendix. Each volume is rare; rarer still to find both together. An important and early colonial history. ESTC W20456, W20464, W31190; Evans 9705, 10658, 11300; Howes H853; Sabin 34075, 34078, 34069.
