    "The Salem of today conserves much of the drama and beauty of its romantic past.  Eloquent reminders of the earliest settlers, and of the days of witchcraft, still remain.  The Salem of Revolutionary days, of the prosperous era of merchant princes and clipper ships, is reflected in its dignified old streets.  This Salem, which inspired Nathaniel Hawthorne and which nourished the genius of Samuel McIntyre, is a pictorial subject of extraordinary interest.
    This little book aspires to capture some of the romance of Salem by pointing a discriminating lens at its venerable landmarks.  Taken in all seasons of the year, carefully grouped and captioned, theses sparkling photographs may throw a new light on one of America's historic treasures."

- Stanley F. Baker, Publisher (1938)
