Beautiful copy of this rare work. It is of the highest interest in connection with the
liberty of the press in New England. Checkley was prosecuted at the Inferior
Court in Boston, in 1724, for publishing and selling this book, which, was called,
"a false and scandalous libel, tending to draw into dispute his present Majesty's
title to the crown, scandalizing the ministers of the gospel, established by law in
this Province; falsifying the Holy Scriptures, representing the Church of Rome as
the present Mother Church; and tending to raise divisions, jealousies and animosi-
ties among his Majesty's loving subjects of this Province." He was convicted but
appealed to the Superior Court, where, after a long speech in his own defense, the
jury brought in a verdict against him. The court sentenced him to pay a fine of
£50 to the King, and to give two sureties in the sum of £100 for his good be-
havior for six months. See Thomas's History of Printing, II, 427. Also:
