Overview


Puritan judge Samuel Sewall witnessed or participated in many of the most important imperial episodes of late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Massachusetts. These episodes punctuated his diary, which he kept daily for 55 years to record the issues that concerned him most — family, church, and town. Five representative years from his diary — 1685, 1696, 1706, 1717, 1726 — are reprinted here in their entirety.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Comprising daily commentary on major and minor events between 1674 and 1729, the diary of Boston merchant Samuel Sewall is one of the richest personal accounts of early American history. This abridgement allows events to unfold without the distraction of editorial manipulation by presenting one year's complete entries from each of the five decades. A general introduction and text annotations explain the social, religious, and political culture of Puritan New England, and chapter introductions provide overviews of the diary's intervening years. Includes b&w illustrations, a chronology, and questions for consideration. Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
