        The Love of Truth and Peace. A Sermon Preached Before the Honourable House of Commons Assembled in Parliament., November. 29. 1640.

      G. M. for Andrew Crooke, London 1641 - 8vo. (vi), 46pp. Bound to style in full calf; red leather lettering piece, gilt; the boards tooled in blind. Title page remargined (no loss) else a fine copy. With the statement at the foot of the title page: "Published by order of that House." The headpiece on page one consists of repeating crowns over a Tudor rose, a fleur-de-lis, a Scottish thistle and an Irish harp. Gauden, 1605-1662, bishop of Worcester, putative author of the "Eikon Basilike." In the early days of the Civil War his sympathies were with the Parliament, and for a short time in 1643 he was a member of the Westminster Assembly. Later he changed his opinions, but was able nonetheless to retain his living throughout the Commonwealth period. At the Restoration in 1660 he was made Bishop of Exeter, and in 1662 was translated, not as he hoped, to Winchester, but to Worcester. Scarce. Wing G362; ESTC R5024.

        A coppy of the prisoners judgment condemned tody [sic] from Nugate on Mundaie the 13. of Decemb: 1641. VVith the examination of the Bishop of Calcedon, and the rest of the Iesuits condemned to die: and the names of the other prisoners condemned, and the matter for which they suffer vvhereunto is added the names of those who deny the oath of supremacy. Shewed first to the officers of the prison and after to one of the iury that so the truth might be printed.

      London: printed by Thomas Paine: in Gold-smiths-Alley in Red-Crosse-streete 1641 - [2], 6 p.: ill. (woodcut) ; 4to. Fine full-page woodcut showing an execution on the reverse of the title page. Upper portion of the inner margin restored, not affecting the text. First and last leaf trimmed close at the top catching the top of the letter "A" at the head of the title and with loss of page numerals on the last page. Newly rebound in quarter calf, marble boards with vellum tips. Wing C6221 LT, LG; CH, CLC, WF. None added in ESTC on-line. This is the variant in which line 15 of title has "officers or the pri-". First is a list of catholic priests condemned to be hung drawn and quartered including Edmund Cannon, referred to as the Bishop of Calcedon. Then follow the names of 24 other prisoners, convicted and condemned with short physical descriptions and details of the offences. The descriptions, in fact, are unusually personal: Charles James "a handsome gentile young man"; John Davis "a lusty stout personable man"; Francis Middle-field "a pretty Youth"; William Bennet "a handsome personable young man" etc. Offences range from horse-stealing, the murder of a shoe-maker, highway robbery, coining, prostitutes conspiring to rob a client, and picking pockets. One lad "Edward Hartford, a Cookes Boy, sometime servant at the Castle in Pye-Corner" was sentenced for "Rape and buggry". Buggary and Sodomy are used synonymously to describe an unnatural sexual act between two males. Serious discussion of sexual offences is very hard to find in this early period. Accounts of trials are often the only sources to give factual evidence of sexual practices and what was considered abnormal sexual behaviour. By 25 Hen 8, c. 6, 2 and 3 Edw. 6, c.29, revived and confirmed by 5 Eliz c. 17 (1562) sodomy was a capital offence without benefit of clergy. If the victim was under fourteen years of age, it was not a felony in him, but only in the older party. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        From the Commissioners of Scotland, 24 February, 1640.

      n.p., n.d. [London? 1641] - Broadside. 26 x 29cm. Drop-head title. Elaborately decorated capital. With the old cancelled stamp of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana on the right hand bottom corner. A good copy. Sole editon. Wing S1001D. 5 UK; CH, CLC, Y in USA. "Concerning unity of the kingdom and asking for justice upon Stafford, the lord Lieutenant of Ireland: "We do long to see justice done upon the Lieutenant of Ireland, earnestly craving according to the famous and laudable custome of that grave and honourable Counsell, He may beare the punishment, which the atrocity of his Crimes doe deserve." Thomas Wentworth, first Earl of Strafford. (1593-1641). Stafford had been sent by the king as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. In councils at home he reportedly threatened to use the Irish army to reduce both Scotland and England if they resisted the will of the king. One of his plans had been to use the army to drive the Scottish Presbyterians out of Ulster. The Scots regarded Stafford as their chiefest enemy. In this broadside the Commissioners weigh in against Strafford. Despite the king's efforts to save him Stafford was condemned and beheaded on Tower Hill 12 May 1641. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Amstelredamensis Observationum medicarum libri tres. Cum aeneis figuris.

      Apud Ludovicum Eldevirum, Amstelredami, apud Ludovicum Eldevirum 1641 - Livre ancien (2) bl, (7), 1 bl, 279 pp. illustré de 14 figures gravées hors texte, et d'une 15e figure non chiffrée dans le texte (frères siamois). Edition originale très rare de ce traité médical, rédigé par Nicolas Tulp (1593-1674). Médecin anatomiste immortalisé par Rembrandt dans son tableau La Leçon d'anatomie, Nicolas Tulp aurait guéri le peintre de troubles mentaux ; en signe de gratitude, le peintre l'aurait choisi pour modèle dans sa célèbre composition. Nicolas Tulp, homme politique et médecin, était doté d'une forte personnalité; il le prouvera en tenant tête aux forces d'occupation française lors de l'invasion de la Hollande. Dans ce livre, connu à quelques exemplaires, Tulp expose ses découvertes anatomiques. Le dernier tiers de l'ouvrage est consacré aux monstres et curiosités, c'est dans cette partie que se trouve la première représentation d'un orang-outang, qu'il nomme Homo Silvestris. Il s'agit d'un singe, offert au prince d'Orange, que Tulp a eu loisir d'observer ; il décrit ses attitudes et capacités et s'émerveille sur la délicatesse avec laquelle, dit-il, l'animal est capable de se désaltérer comme un courtisant. La gravure qui illustre cette description est d'un réalisme frappant. Modeste exemplaire de ce livre introuvable. Condition : In-12. Reliure d'époque en plein veau, monogrammes I S placés dans un cartouche au centre des plats. Le feuillet A, déchiré dans sa partie supérieure, a été sommairement réparé d'un feuillet blanc, avec perte de texte. Traces de mouillures en fin de volume. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Secrets publichs. Pedra de Toch, de les intencions del enemich, y llum de la veritat. Que manifeste los enganys, y cauteles de uns papers volants que va distribuint lo enemich per lo Principat de Cathalunya

      (s.l.), (Barcelona) 1641 - Folio.(16) hojas. Plena piel, nervios, gofrados en lomo y planos. Estuche. Obra publicada anónima, y sin pie de imprenta, sobre la llamada Guerra dels Segadors de Cataluña, que según Palau se atribuye al religioso Gaspar Sala. Palau sitúa la primera edición en 1640 y cita una segunda de 1641. (P., 305646). Nuestro ejemplar no puede pertenecer a la primera edición ya que en el dorso de la hoja 9 se puede leer: "el primer de janer de 1641 arribaren los soldats en Santa Oliva y robaren la Esglesia". Podría tratarse por tanto de la segunda; pero observamos otra diferencia con Palau: él otorga 24 hojas en la edición de 1641, mientras en el presente ejemplar figuran 16. Por lo tanto consginamos con reservas la fecha de 1641. Historia de Cataluña. Historia de España. History of Catalonia. History of Spain.

      London: Printed by E.G. and are to be sold by John Williams. 1641. Sixth edition. Ownership Signature of Hester Maria Thrale. Quarto: [8], 264 [i.e. 270], [10] pp. Lacks gathering E (pp. 25-32). With four printer's blank leaves at the front and three at the back. Text interleaved throughout with printer's blank leaves. Bound in late 19th Century full black leather decorated in gilt, black suede endpapers, with modest wear at the spine ends, tidemarks visible on the first few leaves; a very good copy. With extensive manuscript annotations on many of the printer's blank leaves and marginal notes in a contemporary or 18th Century hand. Includes several owner's names (Ana Johnson, Edward [surname illegible] dated 1736, and Thomas Goodwin dated 1736, perhaps the author's son or another relation of the author), with an intriguing note in pencil on the first leaf (verso): "Pray give this Book to Mrs. Piozzi," presumably referring to Hester Lynch Thrale (later Mrs. Piozzi), the confidante of Dr. Samuel Johnson. This association is made all the more intriguing as the blank leaf following the title page is signed in ink: "H: M: Thrale, 1804," this being Hester Thrale's first born daughter Hester Maria "Queeney" Thrale, whom Johnson often addressed in his correspondence as "My sweet, dear, pretty, little Miss."

        Prattica manuale dell'artiglieria, opera historica, politica, e militare, dove principalmente si tratta dell'eccellenza, & origine dell'arte militare, e delle machine usate da gli antichi. Composta da Luigi Colliado ingegnero del Real' Essercito di S. Maesta Catolica in Italia .

      per Filippo Ghisolfi, & ad instanza di Gio. Battista Bidelli, In Milano, 1641 - Cm. 26, pp. (16) 328. Grande marchio tipografico al frontespizio (entro cornice gatto che tiene in bocca un topo), testate e capolettera in xilografie e 84 figure incise nel testo e su tavole fuori testo anche ripiegate. Legatura strettamente coeva in pergamena molle con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Una delle tavole fuori testo rifilata (ma verosimilmente con pochissima perdita di testo). Esemplare parzialmente slegato con qualche mancanza di pergamena alla cuffia superiore ed agli angoli dei piatti, peraltro genuino, marginoso e ben conservato. Si tratta della seconda edizione italiana (prima edita nel 1606) di un'opera composta in idioma spagnolo nel 1592. Ampiamente celebrato dalle principali bibliografie, questo trattato offre un ampio panorama sullo stato dell'artiglieria alla fine del XVI secolo. Munito di un affascinante apparato iconografico. Non comune. Cfr. Olschki: "Cet ouvrage donne mieux qu'aucun autre livre une idée de l'artillerie au XVI. siècle. Nombreuses figures fort intéressantes pour l'histoire des sciences militaires".

        Dell'antico Ginnasio Napoletano. Opera posthuma.

      S. n. t., (1641)., (Roma), - In-4° (230x165mm), pp. (6), 292, legatura di fine Ottocento in m. pergamena e angoli con dorso recante un tassello in pelle con titolo in oro, fiorellini policromi e filetti in oro e in nero. Frontespizio inciso. Testatine, finalini e iniziali istoriate. Qualche lieve brunitura. Ottimo esemplare. Rara edizione originale (il Graesse cita una fantomatica edizione del 1638, ma si tratta di una sua svista, in quanto di essa non esiste traccia da nessuna altra parte), pubblicata a Roma senza indicazioni tipografiche (la data è evincibile dalla sola dedicatoria). Lo studio riguarda il Ginnasio di Napoli in età romana, ed è ricco di notazioni sulla sua importanza socio-politica, sugli spettacoli in esso celebrati, tra cui i Giochi Capitolini, sull'archeologia del suo edificio, etc. "Opera di gran conto presso gli eruditi. Dopo aver parlato diffusamente di tutti i giuochi e spettacoli che si rappresentano a Napoli tanto ne' tempi precedenti ad Augusto, che ne' posteriori. dimostra che tutti i Ginnasi dell'Ellenistico mondo, e per conseguenza che quello di Napoli, fossero stati assolutamente fondati per gli esercizi corporali e non già per quelli dello spirito." (Giustiniani). Il Lasena (Napoli, 1590-Roma, 1636) fu celebre giurista, erudito e filologo. Vinciana, 4476: "Interessante trattato archeologico". Graesse, IV, p. 113. Lozzi, 3036 (ristampa del 1688).

        Diarium, oder Tage-Buch über dasjenige, so sich Zeit einer neun-järigen Reise zu Wasser und Lande, meistentheils in Dienst der Vereinigten Geoctroyrten Niederländischen Ost-Indianischen Compagnie, besonders in denselbigen Ländern täglich begeben und zugetragen.Jena, Urban Spaltholtz, 1668 [engraved title-page: 1669]. 4to. With engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, engraved title-page and 14 engraved plates (1 folding) with views from the voyage (topography, ships, people, plants, animals). Mottled vellum (ca. 1700), with the gold-tooled crowned script initials E.F.V.D. of Ernst Friedrich van Döring (1659-1726) of Schloss Börln in Saxony.

      Cat. KITLV, p.474; Cat. NHSM I, p. 174; Van Gelder, Het Oost-Indisch avontuur, p. 289; Landwehr, VOC, 309; VD17, 3:307812K. First (and only early) edition of a diary of a nine-year voyage to the East Indies, the Malabar coast in India, Persia and Ceylon, made as a soldier in a merchant ship under the command of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the years 1641 to 1650. It gives detailed information about the ships, captains and others, providing an intimate account of life onboard a VOC ship as well as the peoples in the exotic lands visited, describing food, drink (including rice wine), tobacco, flora and fauna. The illustrations include a folding view of Batavia (now Jakarta, Indonesia), views of Goa, Isle St Helena and other sites, a cinnamon tree, flying fish, numerous ships and much more. They set off on 21 January 1644 and continued from Batavia under Johan Maetsuycker to Goa, then to Ceylon and Persia and back to the Netherlands in 1650. While some information appears to have been taken from published sources, much of the information is clearly an eye-witness account. Bound for Ernst Friedrich von Döring. Somewhat browned, but otherwise in very good condition and with good margins. The outside corner of 1 leaf is torn off with no loss of text. The front hinge is cracked and there is minor damage to the spine, but the binding is also good. A fascinating account, with many personal details, of a soldier's nine-year voyage with the VOC to the East Indies, India, Persia and Ceylon.

        Memorial Informatorio en favor del Maese de Campo Don Antonio Urrutia de Vergara. Respondiendo a la contradiction hecha por parte de don Francisco de la Torre, y a los dos escritos que han presentado [follows] Copia de tres sentencias que en 18 del mes de Marzo pronuncio el señor Obispo de la Puebla

      1641 - Defense of a prominent businessman of Colonial Mexico; one of two known copies; with a rare sentence by Palafox. N.d. [1641]. N.p. [Mexico]. In 8vo. Fine 19th century red calf, boards heavily gilt, with fillets and corner pieces, raised bands to spine, tooled and lettered in gilt; spine with lower portion reconstructed. Edges stained red, a little cropped by the binder, overall fine. Exceedingly rare memorial, in defense of Don Antonio Urrutia de Vergara, against Francisco de la Torre; we have only found one other copy of this rare imprint, at the Real Academia de la Historia, Madrid. Medina did not know of it, and Palau only cites the copy held by Maggs in the 1920’s (this copy). Urritia de Vergara (1598 – 1667) was a prominent Spanish businessman in Mexico, he was involved in commerce, agriculture, and real estate; in fact, Viceroy Alburquerque portrayed Urrutia as the largest merchant of the Indies “el mayor mercader de las Indias” (Cf. “El poder del dinero en el Mexico del siglo XVII”, Virgilio Fernandez Bulete). His relation with the colonial administration appears to have been heterogeneous; however his relation to Viceroy Cerralvo was close and fruitful, it gained Urritia his post as Maestre de Campo, in 1632. Cerralvo’s successor, Cadereita, had Urrutia imprisoned (1637), for charges of fiscal fraud. Urrutia escaped and stayed at a Monastery. In 1639, the Consejo de las Indias ordered to stop the legal action against Urrutia and appointed Palafox to solve the issue. Palafox condemned Urrutia banning him from New Spain for two years; shortly after, he would be appointed Maestre de Campo, again. The imprint contains the sentence given by Bishop Palafox “Sentencia que dio el Señor Obispo don Juan de Palafox al Maefe de Campo don Antonio de Vergara sobre su salida de la carcel”. His business relation reached across the Pacific, with strong ties to Manila. This is clearly evidenced by the writer of this eloquent defense, Juan Grau y Monfalcon, the Procurator General for the Philippines. His involvement proves irrevocably the importance of the man held under trial. Grau y Monfalcon wrote other letters and memorials to the King of Spain, such as: “Señor. Don Iuan Grau y Monfalcon, Procurador general de [.] la ciudad de Manila, Cabeça de las Isla Filipinas, en nombre della dize. Que siendo la conservacion de las Islas el medio mas eficaz para la de todos los Estados que esta Corona tiene y posee en la India Oriental”, “Memorial informatorio al Rey nuestro Señor en su Real y Supremo Conseio de las Indias, por la insigne, y siempre leal ciudad de Manila, Cabeça de las Islas Filipinas” and another on Mexico “Memorial informatorio al rey . en su . Conseio de las Indias por la . ciudad de Merida, cabeça de la provincia de Yucatan sobre las pretensiones de aquella ciudad y provincia”. Palau, 108818 –only citing Magg’s copy, this copy. Not in Medina (Mexico). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cases of treason

      London: Pr. by the Assignes of John More, 1641. 4to (20 cm, 7.9"). [4], 35, [1] pp. First edition: His Majesty's Solicitor General (served 1606 to 1613) sets forth the law on treason, including sections on felony, abjuration and exile, and heresy. The title-page bears More's "Deus providebit" publisher's device, and the text is decorated with two headpieces and one decorative capital. The work, however, was not published until the early days of the English Civil Wars, when its reasonings were most apt. Evidence of readership: The section on "Cases of Felony" is => annotated in an early and rather challenging hand, on three pages. ESTC R16590; Gibson, Bacon, 198; Pforzheimer 25.3; Wing (rev. ed.) B272. Contemporary tan calf framed in triple blind fillets, later rebacked with brown sheep, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; sides and spine with small scuffs, edges and extremities worn. Front pastedown with London bookseller's ticket, slightly offset onto free endpaper. Title-page darkened and stained, with two early inked notations; text generally age-toned and waterstained though not weakened. Variable worming from p. 14 on, in some cases touching letters without generally obscuring sense; upper edges of several leaves ragged and chipped, some lower edges untrimmed. => A classic.

        LE PAZZIE DE' SAVI, OVERO IL LAMBERTACCIO, POEMA TRAGICOEROICOMICO DI BARTOLOMEO BOCCHINI. AL SERENISSIMO PRINCIPE DON LORENZO DI TOSCANA.

      VENEZIA, BERTANI, 1641Legatura coeva in piena pergamena; titolo manoscritto e sei nervi rilevati al dorso; tracce di titolo manoscritto al taglio inferiore. 406 pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo e fregio tipografico inquadrati entro cornice a duplice filetto, parte del fregio, del luogo e data di stampa integrati da antica mano a penna in luogo di mancanze risarcite. All'interno 12 tavole numerate fuori testo, comprese nella numerazione del volume, incise all'acquaforte e bianche al verso, aventi come soggetto il testo del canto di riferimento. Poeta bolognese e attore, il Bocchini fu autore di rime per lo più dialettali. L'opera è un poema eroicomico essendo minimali i tratti tragici pur citati nel titolo; tra questo genere è certamente il poema più assimilabile alla Secchia Rapita del Tassoni, come nel poema del Tassoni, l'autore narra delle lotte tra bolognesi e modenesi. Il testo è suddiviso in due parti: nei primi 4 canti vengono narrate le lotte tra i Petroni e i Gemignani, negli altri 8 canti le discordie sorte a Bologna tra le famiglie dei Lambertazzi e dei Geremei. Esemplare in buone condizioni, lieve uniforme ingiallitura delle carte, segnalata integrazione manoscritta al frontespizio.

        LEICESTER'S COMMON - WEALTH. Conceived, spoken and published with most earnest protestation of dutifull goodwill and affection towards this realme. Whereunto is added Leicesters - ghost.

      London, no printer named, Printed anno Dom. MDCXLI. [1641]EDITION UNKNOWN 1641, small 8vo, approximately 150 x 95 mm, 6 x 3½ inches, engraved portrait frontispiece signed: W Marshall sculpsit, pages: [8], 88, 81 - 128, 137 - 183, [1]; 34, jumps in pagination as in all copies, see ESTC R12740. LACKS THE TITLE PAGE TO LEICESTER'S GHOST, A1, bound in full brown morocco, gilt lettering and decoration to spine, gilt decoration to covers and edges of covers, all edges gilt and gauffered, marbled endpapers, binder has put the wrong date at bottom of spine. Binding slighty rubbed, title page slightly dusty, pale age - browning to margins, occasional small fox spot, otherwise a very good copy in an attractive binding. Leicester's Commonwealth (originally titled The Copie of a Leter wryten by a Master of Arts of Cambrige) (1584) is a scurrilous tract that circulated in Elizabethan England and which attacked Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. The work functioned as Roman Catholic propaganda against the political and religious policy of Elizabeth I's regime, in particular the Puritan sympathies fostered by Leicester. In doing so it portrayed Leicester as an amoral opportunist of "almost satanic malevolence", and circulated lurid stories of his scandalous deeds and his dangerous plots. The text is presented as "a letter written by a Master of Art of Cambridge to his friend in London, concerning some talk passed of late between two worshipful and grave men about the present state and some proceedings of the Earl of Leicester and his friends in England." The title "Leicester's Commonwealth" was first used in the 1641 edition. The book highly influenced Leicester's historical reputation in the ensuing centuries (Taken from Wikipedia).

        [TWO MANUSCRIPT VOLUMES CONTAINING PARLIAMENTARY PROTESTS FILED IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS FROM 1641 TO 1799]

      [London. 1641, 1660-1799].. Two volumes. [10],610; 311,[24]pp. Large folio. First volume in black morocco, elaborately tooled in gilt; second volume in dark green calf, also elaborately gilt. Hinges cracked, head and foot of spine worn; extremities rubbed, boards lightly scuffed. Internally fine, with very minor scattered foxing. Contemporary armorial bookplate of the Marquess of Rockingham on front pastedown. In matching blue half morocco clamshell cases, spines gilt. An exhaustive manuscript set of protests lodged by Members of the House of Lords over the period from 1641 to 1799, copied by the clerks in the Parliament Office and bound for Charles Watson- Wentworth, Second Marquess of Rockingham, with his bookplate. Peers had the right to protest decisions reached by Parliament into the journal or formal record of the House's proceedings, simply by signing their names against the record of the decision. Members could also add a protest consisting of a reason or series of reasons for their dissent; the first such protest originated in 1641. Such protests were not published at the time and would not have been available in printed form. This set includes, among other things, protests lodged against the Stamp Act and the Declaratory Act during the period preceding the American Revolution. Charles Watson-Wentworth, Second Marquess of Rockingham (1730-82) had long been a supporter of American rights and played a major role in the independence of the United States. He was Prime Minister first in 1766, and oversaw the repeal of the Stamp Act. His second stint as Prime Minister came in 1782, when he led Parliament in recognizing the independence of the United States at the end of the American Revolution. Rockingham always urged moderation in his government's treatment of the colonies, but nevertheless condemned the Boston Tea Party and other outrages, and in this respect did not differ from the rest of the British establishment during the time. Close connections with prominent British merchants influenced his support of the colonies, which were highly profitable for British trade, when not engaged in open rebellion. He was also the political mentor of Charles James Fox, the leading voice of American sympathy in British debates, and Edmund Burke was his personal secretary and political mouthpiece. Protest against the repeal of the Stamp Act takes up fourteen pages, covering the dissent over the second and third readings of the bill, on March 11 and 17, 1766. Among the reasons given for protesting the repeal in the second reading, the journal states that a bill could have been made to amend the Stamp Act, without repealing it, which the Lords would have considered "with a warm desire of relieving our countrymen in America, from any grievance or hardship; but with proper care to enforce their submission and obedience to the law so amended and to the whole Legislative Authority of Great Britain, without any reserve or distinction whatsoever." Likewise listed as reasons are the irrefutable authority of the power of taxation and the need for Americans to be taxed like all other British subjects, and the obvious ability of the Americans to bear their portion of the tax burden. Another point indicated is that if Americans are given the free trade they desire, the colonies will no longer be of any benefit to Britain, and would in fact be "in the highest degree prejudicial to the commerce and welfare of their Mother Country." The dissent on the third reading opens with the statement: "We think, that the Declaratory Bill we pass'd last week, cannot possibly obviate the growing mischiefs in America where it may seem calculated only to deceive people of Great Britain, by holding forth a delusive and nugatory affirmance of the legislative right of this Kingdom, whilst enacting part of it, does no more than abrogate the resolutions of the House of Representatives in the North American Colonies, which have not in themselves the least colour of authority; and declares that which is apparently and certainly criminal only, null and void." The dissent closes with the statement: "...repeal of this law, under the present circumstances, will we fear not only surrender the honour and essential interests of the Kingdom now and forever both at home and abroad...[but] we in effect annihilate this branch of the legislature and vote ourselves useless; or if by passing this bill, we mean to justify those who in America, and even in Great Britain, have treated a series of British Acts of Parliament, as so many acts of Tyranny and Oppression, which it is scarcely criminal to resist...we shall then give our approbation to an open breach of the first article of that great palladium of our liberties, the Bill of Rights...." The second volume contains numerous dissents related to the conflict with the American colonies, including an eloquent protest directed to the King regarding the imprudence and potential disgrace of hiring foreign mercenaries to fight the colonists. Additionally, protests against ceasing trade with the colonies and the impressment of American seamen. Altogether, a trove of British Parliamentary opinions, with important commentary on the American Revolution, with excellent and significant provenance.

        The Historie of the Reigne of King Henry the Seventh

      London: sold by R. Meighen, 1641. Quarto, portrait frontispiece and decorative woodblock title-page (a little shaved at fore-edge margin); some staining to first few leaves, light foxing, but a good copy in contemporary full polished calf, joints strengthened and rebacked, retaining original gilt lettered backstrip. Early edition of Lord Bacon's history of Henry VII, the first Tudor king of England who ruled 1485 to 1509. When impeached and imprisoned in the Tower during the winter of 1620, Bacon kept his promise to King James I to write a history of the English kings. The Historie of the Reigne of King Henry the Seventh was intended as the first such work, and Bacon is known to have commenced, but never completed, another volume on Henry the Eighth. Bacon drew on his extensive personal experience as a statesman within the Tudor court, blending hardened pragmatism with enlightened philosophical reflection. The Dictionary of National Biography records that Bacon 'wrote with breathtaking speed, presenting the manuscript to the king early in October…It should be seen in the context of humanist historiography rather than as a precursor of its modern methods. Bacon was keenly interested in the conventional topics of virtue and fortune, but was unconventional in placing a much stronger emphasis on fortune than virtue. The central lesson of The History of Henry VII was that a ruler must remain open to accident and ready to seize the opportunities it offered.'.
