This chapter looks at the booksellers who during Edwards’s lifetime acted as publishers for many of his works. Particularly important was the Boston bookseller Daniel Henchman, who published such notable works by Edwards as the third edition of A Faithful Narrative in 1738 and The Life of Brainerd in 1749. The chapter covers Boston’s religious and commercial climate at this time and considers the distinction in colonial America between booksellers and publishers. Also discussed are Edwards’s London (notably John Oswald) and Edinburgh bookseller-publishers and their motivations. A central argument in this chapter is that the relationships formed between Edwards’s printers and booksellers were largely based on similar religious interests.
