Description:
Bound commonplace book kept by Elnathan Chauncy (Harvard Class of 1661), begun in his senior year at Harvard.
Abstract:
The sermons consist of three bound volumes of holograph sermons by Charles Chauncy, one of them also carrying sermons by Israel Chauncy. A fourth bound volume contains holograph outlines of sermons delivered between 1690 and 1695 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by a variety of ministers, including Nathaniel Gookin, Cotton Mather, William Brattle, John Emerson, Jonathan Mitchel, Jonathan Pierpont, and Samuel Willard. The recorder of these sermons is thought to be Isaac Chauncey, Harvard class of 1693, the only member of the Chauncy family in Cambridge during the years the sermons were recorded. A holograph sermon in sewn paper wrappers is by Israel Chauncy, given on the occasion of the death of Zachary Brinsmade of Stratford in August, 1667. The sermons are accompanied by two folio sheets recording the inventory of the library of Nathaniel Chauncy, a holograph list of 160 books in short-title form, possibly created when Israel Chauncy assumed guardianship of his nephew; and a bound commonplace book kept by Elnathan Chauncy (Harvard Class of 1661), begun in his senior year at Harvard.
