Entries in David Levin's What Happened in Salem 2nd. ed.
Cross-Referenced to Records of the Salem Witch-Hunt
This page cross-references X of the transcription entries in David Levin's What Happened in Salem? Documents Pertaining to the Seventeenth-Century Witchcraft Trials, 2nd Ed. (Harcourt, 1960) with Records of the Salem Witch-Hunt (Cambridge, 2009). The two works are transcribed differently: Records presents transcriptions of the manuscripts with letter-by-letter accuracy. Levin's edition is based on the Woodward edition (1864).
The items listed on this page as being in Records of the Salem Witch-Hunt do not represent its entire contents, only X of the documents that appear in Levin. For the complete contents of Records -- including many, many items not included in Levin -- please consult this list. This page does not include the entire contents of Levin, either, which includes a variety of period texts that were outside the editorial scope of Records. Levin's selection concentrates on five cases: Sarah Good, Tituba, Bridget Bishop, Susannah Martin, John Procter, and George Burroughs.
