MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF THE LATE REVEREND INCREASE MATHER, D.D. WHO DIED AUGUST 23, 1723. WITH A PREFACE BY THE REVEREND EDMUND CALAMY, D.D
London: Printed for John Clark and Richard Hett, 1725.. [8],88pp. plus engraved frontispiece portrait of Increase Mather. Modern polished calf, spine gilt. Minor foxing and soiling. Pencil notations in text. Very good. Prepared by Samuel Mather, the son of Increase, this London edition is a revised and edited version of his brother Cotton's PARENTATOR..., issued in Boston in 1724. It seems to be much rarer than the American edition, and far more desirable, as it contains an excellent portrait of Mather. The final three pages include a list of Increase Mather's writings. The editor notes that "instead of entertaining the reader with extracts of the funeral discourses made on the occasion of his death, or with a description of the place where he was buried, I shall exhibit a catalogue of his books." SABIN 46406. BRINLEY SALE 1057. HOLMES, MINOR MATHERS 111. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 725/138.
