Boston Politics and the Sea 1652 – 1674
History of Boston Series. No. 13 – Published in 1975. This is a First Edition.
This book is presented as a complement to, and continuation of, my Boston and the Great Civil War 1642-1651 book which appears as No. 7 in the series. It covers the time which saw the dismantling and closure of that outstanding period of the town’s history when it was famed as a centre of Puritanism. It also attempts to convey an impression of how it fared during the three great sea wars which England fought against the Dutch Republic.
I have devoted a chapter to sketching in briefly the main outlines of Boston’s development and standing as a port after it became a borough and began to throw off the nostalgia of its medieval glory.
Please note this book is now rare, and though shows the markings of age (none are worse than this photo), it is brand new and all pages are in very good condition.
