This book represents the first comprehensive record of all legal documents pertaining to the Salem witch trials, in chronological order. Numerous newly discovered manuscripts, as well as records published in earlier books that were overlooked in other editions, offer a comprehensive narrative account of the events of 1692-93, with supplementary materials stretching as far as the mid - 18th century. The book may be used as a reference book or read as an unfolding narrative. All legal records are newly transcribed, and errors in previous editions have been corrected. Included in this edition is a historical introduction, a legal introduction, and a linguistic introduction. Manuscripts are accompanied by notes that, in many cases, identify the person who wrote the record. This has never been attempted, and much is revealed by seeing who wrote what, when. Publication made possible with generous support by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

Only 15 left in stock (more on the way). Notable not only for its accurate transcriptions and revelatory chronological organization but also for its helpful general introductions and detailed annotations of individual documents, this volume will open new realms of inquiry to scholars and interested non-specialists alike.

The documents meticulously compiled by Rosenthal and his team invite new questions, but Schiff does not pursue them. Those who think of history as a process of detection leading to original interpretation will find little new, and less of interest here. Historians are also storytellers, of course.

Bernard Rosenthal : Over and over again, scholars and others go back to the idea that the Salem witch hunt was all started by village quarrels. If I were to rewrite Salem Story I would start by showing how that idea has been taken apart. I found some errors in the standard work, poked around, and the next thing you know 20 years went by.

Talk about Records of the Salem Witch-Hunt

What a herculean undertaking this book represents. All of the witchcraft papers brought seamlessly together in a neat, tidy, well-organized volume that explains the unclear, points out gaps and alternate spellings, and even provides brief biographies of the players. You would think that by now, all of this would be available somewhere on the web (hence, why shell out a hundred bucks?). The fact is, it is not. So much of what one finds at presumably reliable online locations is either flawed, incomplete, bereft of sources, or impossible to print or download. Mr. Rosenthal, thank you so much for shouldering this momentous task. Finally we have a complete set of documentation. It is a treasure.
This book offers information not found anywhere else. If you would like to read the actual records this will be your go-to book.
The completeness and scholarship of this major undertaking. It's the most comprehensive work on the Salem Trials there is. I've only begun learning.
I am really glad, I received it really quickly. It would have been perfect if the coverage didn't came off...
I really can't overemphasize the quality of this new resource book on the witchcraft trials. The research here is meticulous, and the organization is outstanding. This collection will make the witch trials history more accessible to general readers, but it will be especially exciting to scholars, historians, and experts on Salem, who will revel in the new information that this book brings to light. Highly recommended for libraries, especially. I plan to use the book in my college-level early American lit course, not just when we discuss Salem, but also when we are discussing the process of history, the reliability of "primary sources," and the way that researchers piece together the puzzle of the past.
