About meThis library was sent along with the 400 Massachusetts Bay Colony settlers who left England in April, 1629 and settled at Salem.
About my libraryThe books in this collection, documented in the records of the Massachusetts Bay Company, were given in part by Company "adventurer" (investor) William Backhouse (~1593-1662), described as a "renowned chymist, Rosicrucian, and a great encourager of those that studied chymistry and astrology, especially Elias Ashmole, whom he adopted as his son." The remainder of the books were purchased by Rev. Samuel Skelton (1593-1634), a minister who came with the fleet to Salem and preached there until his death.
