Cotton Mather is still the most salient, representative, interesting, controversial, provocative figure in the Colonial New England scene. Thomas Holmes’s bibliography provides an easy grasp of the outlines of his printed works, which run to the amazing total of four hundred and forty-four. In addition, Holmes includes notes on fifteen works which Mather prepared definitely for the press but which for various reasons were not published, and about one hundred and fifty-six unnumbered entries which include paraphrased and imperfect titles. The title-page of the first edition of each work, and in some few instances also of the second edition, has been reproduced. Scholars who are familiar with Holmes’s earlier bibliography of Increase Mather will not need to be told of the thoroughness, completeness, and high value of the present work. As R. W. G. Vail said of the Increase Mather volume, it shows “what a near approach to bibliographical perfection looks like.”
