[clean, solid copy, minor wear at extremities; jacket rubbed, edgeworn, rear panel moderately soiled, minor chipping/wrinkling at top of spine]. Novel set in Boston in 1721, with "the vigor and excitement of this lusty period of our early life portrayed in its full value. [The book] does not ruthlessly debunk nor does it too lightly gloss over the evils and prejudices of the early life in the colonies. Many outstanding American characters appear in this novel, Benjamin Franklin, Cotton Mather, Dr. William Douglass, and others. There is also described in very interesting detail the home life, slavery, social customs and the politics of the period." (The main theme of the book is a love story between "young Dr. Nathaniel Webb and his sweetheart Bethiah Rainford, a love that eventually overcomes the objections of her conservative brother, the Reverend Holdfast Rainford.")
