John Warner Barber
This book is a 174 year-old FIRST EDITION!
If you've never read a book by Barber, you're missing a treat. His knowledge of people is evident and the text is dripping with facts, anecdotes and history. This book includes information similar to gazetteers with additional descriptions varying from a couple of sentences to several pages, depending on the importance and size of the location. He also includes true stories that at one time were local knowledge but have long been forgotten about - topics such as Revolutionary War incidents, Indians, fires and heroism are all laced with history, facts, anecdotes, intrigue, and humor. If you're from the areas in this book, a genealogist or historian, you're in for a treat! The book contains a lot of genealogy! Many of the towns include a list of the original land purchasers.
Since 1839, this book has been a main information book for many historians who have written about Massachusetts history. 'John Barber' books are referred to time-and-time again and have became the part of the standard history reference books of Massachusetts!
From Wiki: John Warner Barber (1798-1885), was an American engraver whose books of state, national, and local history featured his vivid illustrations, said to have caught the flavor and appearance of city, town, and countryside scenes in his day. "He talked with townspeople, gathered local documents and made quick sketches everywhere he went," according to a New York Times article from December 10, 1989. His illustrations depict town centers, with its homes and churches, academies and courthouses sailboats plying a river or harbor, an occasional factory belching puffs of smoke and always a tiny figure or two. Barber started with rough pencil sketches and developed them into more detailed wash drawings. He then transferred the drawings directly to small blocks of boxwood on which he engraved the designs.
This book contains 100's of Barber's famous woodcut engravings (all listed below for you).
In 1840, Henry Howe, joined with John Warner Barber to produce a history of New York state; they journeyed from county to county collecting data for the book and Barber made sketches for illustrations. Histories of New Jersey and Virginia followed, 1842 and 1845.
A couple of text samples: Fall River: During the revolutionary war about 200 of the enemy landed in the south part of where the present village is built; they were opposed by about fifteen of our people, under the command of Col. Joseph Durfee, who from behind the stone walls fired on the British troops and killed two soldiers; upon this, they rapidly retreated to their barges. The two soldiers were buried south of the river, where the Pocasset factory now stands. At the erection of this factory their remains were taken up and buried in the town graveyard.
Dighton Rock: "After viewing the rock and its sculptures, which last are sufficiently conspicuous to attract notice from the deck of a vessel sailing in the channel of the river, we demand, if not the meaning of the sculptures, at least the history of their formation; but, upon the second subject, there is very little to be said, and upon the first, absolutely nothing. The only solid history is, that the rock, with its sculptures, was found in its present place, and apparently in its present condition, by the earliest colonists.
" But, in the absence of history, there has been an abundance of conjecture. Two opinions, though with some subordinate varieties, chiefly divide the learned and unlearned. The unlearned believe that the rock was sculptured by the order of a pirate, either Captain Kyd or Captain Blackboard, in order to mark the site of buried treasure ; and the shore, for more than a hundred fathom on a side, has been dug, in the hope of a discovery. The learned are more attached to a Phoenician origin, and suspect that the Writing Rock may be a monument of the first navigators that passed the Pillars of Hercules; indeed, they find the Pillars of Hercules among the sculptures.
The following circumstance is related by Dr. Dwight as having occurred at the great bridge in this town: "A Mr. Van Rensselaer, a young gentleman from Albany, came one evening into an inn, kept by a Mr. Root, just at the Eastern end of the bridge. The inn-keeper, who knew him, asked him where he had crossed the river. He answered, ' On the bridge.' Mr. Root replied, that that was impossible, because it had been raised that very day, and that not a plank had been laid on it. Mr. Van Rensselaer said that it could not be true, because his horse hod come over without any difficulty or reluctance; that the night was indeed so profoundly dark as to prevent him from seeing anything distinctly ; but that it was incredible, it his horse could see sufficiently well to keep his footing anywhere, that he should not discern the danger, and impossible for him to pass over the bridge in that condition. Each went to bed dissatisfied, neither believing the story of the other. In the morning, Mr. Van Rensselaer went, at the solicitation of his host, to view the bridge, and, finding it a naked frame, gazed for a moment with astonishment, and fainted."
