Milk For Babes

"Milk for babes, drawn out of the breasts of both Testaments chiefly for the spirituall nourishment of Boston babes in either England, but may be of like use for any children"

By: John Cotton
Publisher: London : Printed by J. Coe for Henry Overton, and are to be sold at his shop ..., 1646.

Isn't that a great title?

I was wondering if anyone knew whether and where this may be found online? So far, I've only found it listed as included in the appendix of the book "Puritan Children in Exile."

Hey! Overton is my maiden name! I wonder if he is a very distant relative?!

I checked and it is actually included in Emerson's biography... but if you find it online, please let me know!
