1724 Cotton Mather Salem Witch Trials American New England Occult Witchcraft

[Cotton Mather; Mather Family; Early American Imprints; Salem Witch Trials]
Parentator : memoirs of remarkables in the life and the death of the ever-memorable Dr. Increase Mather, who expired August 23, 1723. : [one line from II] Kings My father, my father.Mather, Cotton. Boston: : Printed by B. Green, for Nathaniel Belknap, at the corner of Scarlets-Wharff., 1724. 1st EditionThe first biography of Increase Mather, written by his son. Cotton Mather's homage to his famous father, one of the most influential men in the history of colonial New England. Increase died in 1723; this is the earliest extensive biography of Increase Mather and gives important details of both his religious and political activities in Massachusetts, including a section dealing with the 'invisible world,' rather as we know it now, the Salem Witch Trials. Holmes describes the biography as an "eminently readable work." Also, this was the first book printed by Timothy Green Jr. (1703-1763), although he is not directly listed in the imprint. At the time Green, a member of the distinguished Boston printing family, was an apprentice in his uncle Bartholomew's shop. Bound in original leather binding, as shown with much wear, rounding and exposure, the front board nearly detached (nearly-held by two cords), the rear detached altogether. Calls for [2], x, xiv, 239, [6] p; our copy lacking the title page, frontis, and first page of the Dedication, starting on leaf III (a3), then lacking (I-IV) of the Introduction. The main block is nearly complete, retaining 1-232, lacking all after. Front pastedown signed by a Rachel Robbins, Polly Bushwell and a Robert Stillman. Also, first present page of the Intro with contemporary manuscript at the head. Forst 5-7 leaves detached with edge loss and wear, throughout a few chips and wear points, such as closed tears, detached leaves etc. Truly an important & scarce Americana collectible, with ties to the most famous figures attributed and associated with the Salem Witch Trials a few decades before. Good luck!
