Cotton Mather was much impressed with Basnage's History of the Jews up to the Present Time for both Basnage's scholarship and the book's content.  Mather epitomized Basnage's book and titled it an "Appendix to Acts" in his Biblia.  By looking at the way Mather worked with the book we can learn much about Mather as a historian.
