The John A. Lewis Library
THE JOHN A. LEWIS LIBRARY.
The following is a Catalogue of a collectiou of books, chiefly early New England imprints, made
by the late John A. Lewis, and given by his widow to the Boston Public Library. John Allen Lewis
was born in Barnstable, November 23, 1819. When eleven years old he began to set type in the office
of the Barnstable Patriot, and later found employment in other newspaper offices. In the year 1849
he went to California, taking with him a printing press, and, after editing a newspaper at San Francisco,
joined a relative in establishing the Star newspaper in Los Angeles. Returning to Boston, he married
Elizabeth Ritchie, daughter of the late Uriah Ritchie, a resident of the old North End.
Mr. Lewis was connected with the Illinois Central railroad, and lived in Chicago for about five
years. The remainder of his life was spent in Boston, where he died November 2, 1885.
His interest in the collecting of books dates from the acquisition of the Library of the
Reverend Samuel Sewall, of Burlington, the author of the History of Woburn. That interest became
an absorbing one, and his pursuit of early American books was untiring. "Whatever illustrated the
history of printing in Boston was an especial object of search. He wrote an account of John Foster,
the first printer of Boston, and obtained the larger part of the issues of his press, including two which
deserve particular mention: Increase Mather's The wicked mans portion, — the first work printed in
Boston, — and the excessively rare Hubbard's Narrative of the troubles with the Indians in New-Eng-
laud, with the " White Hills " map.
The list of the publications of the Mathers here given, and consisting of more than two hundred
titles, is a remarkable one. They will largely supplement the collection in the Prince Library. The
founder of that Library, Thomas Prince, is represented by twenty -four of the various editions of his
writings. Of other ministers of Boston and Cambridge there are numerous publications : of John
Cotton, twenty-two; Thomas Shepard, thirteen; Samuel Willard, twelve; Nehemiah Walter, four;
Benjamin Wadsworth, five; Benjamin Colman, thirty-one; Joseph Sewall, six; William Cooper, nine;
and Thomas Foxcroft, sixteen.
Other early published and rare books in this collection are : John Robinson's Peoples plea, 1618 ;
Underbill's Newes from America, 1638 ; Hooke's New Englands teares, for Old Englands feares, 1641 ;
Welde's Answer to William Rathband, 1644; Ward's Simple Cobler of Aggawam in America, 1647 and
1713; the Massachusee Psalter, 1709 ; Morton's New-England's memorial, 1721 ; and Mayhew's Indian
Converts, 1727. Of early Massachusetts Election sermons there are about one hundred. Publications
relating to the Quakers, including the writings of William Penn, are well represented.
It was the wish of Mr. Lewis to make his books and his knowledge of early Massachusetts history
useful to students. In recognition of aid rendered, IMr. Sabin dedicated to him the Mather volume of
his Dictionary of books relating to America. Mr. Sibley also, in the preparation of the Biographical
sketches of graduates of Harvard University, sought his assistance, as did many others.
Mr. Lewis's writings for the press were esteemed for their accuracy and research. The editors
of the Nation regarded him as a most valued contributor.
To Mrs. Lewis, as well as to her late husband, is due the grateful recoguition of the citizens of
Boston for this gift, one of the most valuable and important of later years.
