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.
