In the best traditions of nineteenth-century local history, this volume provides both a narrative and a topical history of an important early Massachusetts maritime community. The history is interspersed with biographical compilations of early settlers, soldiers and sailors, and businessmen.

The early chapters of this history take a chronological approach, beginning with the Indians and the pre-settlement explorers, and coming down to the late nineteenth century. Chapter Four includes biographical sketches of settlers in town by 1700, while Chapter Five has a similar list for settlers between 1700 and 1750.

The chronological chapters are followed by several more chapters covering such topics as schools and military service. The most useful parts of these chapters are two detailed lists, one for Gloucester soldiers in the Civil War, and one for sailors in the same conflict. The book concludes with an appendix of biographical sketches of Gloucester businessmen at the time of publication.
