London. 1828. xx,551pp. Uniformly bound in modern half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. Bookplates on front pastedowns. First two volumes with light toning and light foxing; a few leaves in volume two heavily foxed. Third volume with minor scattered foxing and soiling. Some later pencil notations throughout all three volumes. A very good set. The third edition of this classic Massachusetts history, with additions and corrections. "Hutchinson's HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY (2 vols., 1760, 1768) accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the 'tyrannical disposition' of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's 'harpies.' Hutchinson's HISTORY acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self- interested groups" - ANB. Hutchinson (1711-1780), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773, and was a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in Exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves; the third volume was published posthumously. Howes does not note this edition. EVANS 28878, 28879. HOWES H853 (ref). SABIN 34080. ANB (online).
