A Prize-Winning Book

  • Maryland Historical Society Book Prize (1991)


Hamilton’s literary hi-jinks reflect a serious purpose that will require a good deal of serious attention. The History is the most important addition to our sense of the literature of the colonial period since the publication of Edward Taylor’s poems.

--Norman S. Grabo

What a joy, to have this eighteenth-century American comic treasury in print for the first time, more than two centuries after its composition!

--John Barth
