"A prose satire of the times, which instantly became popular and will always associate [Ward's] name with early American literature..." - Church. Ward came to New England in 1634 and was appointed minister at Agawam, now Ipswich, Massachusetts. Soon after, he compiled the first code of laws established in New England, which was adopted but never printed in book form, as John Cotton's code was mistaken for Ward's. This was his next literary effort, containing many New England references. The work was extremely popular, going through five editions in the first year of its publication. Scarce. SABIN 101323.
