John Josselyn

Boston : William Veazie, 1865


Limited edition of only 250 copies. Bound in publisher's cloth.  Good binding and cover. Light fray to spine head/tail. Clean, unmarked pages.  Justin Windsor's stamp (Cambridge, MA) on title and signature on front pastedown.  Winsor, 1831-1897, was a noted historian, cartographer and librarian at Harvard and the Boston Public library.  MHA book plate.  "Josselyn first visited America in 1638--39. He came a second time and stayed from 1663 to 1671, when he returned to England and wrote this book. His own observations are valuable, but his history is erroneous. He frequently cites Johnson. The work contains many curious particulars regarding medicine and surgery, as did his former work, New England's Rarities Discovered." Church 627. Howes J254. Sabin 36673.
