Overview

""MORE WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD: OR THE WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD DISPLAYED IN FIVE PARTS."" Originally published in 1700 and rarely found in print, Robert Calef's ""More Wonders of the Invisible World"" provides a more readable and empathetic view of the events of 1692 Salem than the better-known Increase & Cotton Mather book from which its title is adapted.



This unabridged edition has been newly typeset and edited, retaining some of the look and feel of the 1700 original while also prioritizing legibility for the modern reader. Text based primarily on the Salem 1823 edition. Includes footnotes by editor S.P. Fowler and header illustrations from the Salem 1860 edition.



Calef's work collects his correspondence with Cotton Mather and other interested parties in debate over the then-recent Salem witch trials. It also discusses the misgivings of some parishoners of Salem Village regarding their minister, Mr. Parris, and contains transcriptions of some Salem Witch Trial documents and testimony.
