        Allegiance Not Impeached, viz. By The Parliament's taking up of Arms (though against the King's personall commands) for the just defence of the King's Person, Crown, and Dignity, the Laws of the Land, Liberties of the Subject;

      London: Rich. Cotes for Joh. Bellamy. 1644. First Edition. Hardcover. Three quarter calf over marbled boards, some bumping to corners, spine ends and corners rubbed, bookplate on front pastedown, title page within border of printer's flowers, pamphlet trimmed close to text at upper margin but with no loss of text, some toning to paper but text remain clear and unmarked. (Wing A4253), Robert Austine (bap.1593-1661) was am Anglican clergyman and political pamphleteer. This current work is his best known. In it he seeks to show that it was the Oath of Allegiance to the Crown that compelled Parliament and its supporters to take up arms against King Charles I. While such an argument sounds strange to us now, it was one which had been deployed in various forms in both the run up to and in the early stages of the Civil War. It seems even those opposed to the King either believed in the ideal of monarchy or felt the need to assert that they did and so disagreements with the King were attributed to his 'evil counsellors' rather than to any action of the King himself. Austine follows this pattern and in his 'Address to the Reader' states that he is motivated only by patriotism and that he looked forward to the time when the king would ‘return in safety and his throne be established in judgement and justice’. , 4to , [12] 49 [1] pp .

        Ortus medicinae. Id est, initia physicae inaudita; Opuscula medica inaudita.Amsterdam: Ludovic Elzevier,, 1648. First edition.

      A fine copy, heavily annotated in a contemporary hand, of this "masterwork of one of the most original geniuses in the history of science and medicine" (Neville). PMM 135; Norman 1048; Heirs of Hippocrates 409 & 409; Garrison-Morton 665.<br/><br/> "Helmont, who was himself an alchemist, marks the transition from alchemy to chemistry in the modern sense, and it is not surprising to find that he was much studied by Robert Boyle who adopted many of his ideas. Helmont therefore stands at the very beginning of the chemical revolution which was completed by Lavoisier in the eighteen century." (PMM). "Helmont was one of the founders of biochemistry. He was the first to realize the physiological importance of ferments and gases, and indeed invented the word 'gas'. He introduced the gravimetric idea in the analysis of urine. Helmont published very little during his life. The above work is a collection of his writings , issued by his son, Franz Mercurius. (Garrison-Morton). <br/><br/> "A Belgian mystic, Helmont was nonetheless the most prominent chemist of the first half of the seventeenth century. Originally an alchemist and a follower of Paracelsus in that his outlook was universal, he himself marks the transition from alchemy to the science of chemistry in the modern sense" (Heirs of Hippocrates). "In this work, Helmont established his name as one of the founders of biochemistry, although some authorities believe that he is perhaps overrated because of his vacillations between mysticism and science. In any event, his discovery of digestive juices in the stomach and intestine, and especially his first use of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes, mark him as a man of no insignificant importance in the history of medicine" (Heirs of Hippocrates). "Though separately paginated 'Opuscula medica inaudita' is considered a part of the whole volume, as indicated by the 'Index tractatum' on 5*5 - 5*6. Originally published as a separate work in 1644, 'Opuscula medica inaudita' contains reprints of Helmont's treatises on the stone, on fevers, on the errors of humoral pathology, and on the plague" (Norman).. 4to (200 x 155 mm), contemporary vellum, complete with the often lacking engraved double portrait of Helmont and his son, pp [36] 1-88, 87-158, 161-176, 175-382, 373-452, 457-800; [8] 1-110 [2], [1-2] 3-115 [1], [1-3] 4-88. Faint rubber stamp to the title. Inscriptions: Front end paper with a medieval poem, by Lucas de Penna, that answers the rhetorical question What is a book?, verso with quotation from the preface of William Gilbert's De Magnete, small piece of paper pasted on the page 'Olaus O(e?)strings Keric' [Obtains this on 28 Sept 1654], last page 'For the Glory of God alone // Finished annotating (imprinting)18 Sept 1655', 25-page manuscript index bound it at the end; rear paste down: these lines appear to be quotations from the book itself

Från Carl Gustaf Tessins bibliotek, med hans namnteckning på titelbladet och "til nya biblioth" på försättsbladet. Med Johan Henrik Schöders exlibris och troligen hans anteckningar på försättsbladet. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. VD17 23:256610T. Warmholtz 4154. Författarskapet är omtvistat. Oftast utpekas Leonhard Pappus som författare, men ibland även Johan Adler Salvius eller Thomas Carve. Leonhard Pappus (1607-77), var präst och historiker, verksam vid domkapitlet i Augsburg. Den första upplagan kom 1643 troligen under titeln "Compendium belli Germanici" och sedan utgiven i en mängd upplagor med varierande titlar. Carl Gustaf Tessins (1695-1770) stora bibliotek, huvudsakligen på Åkerö, skingrades liksom hans övriga samlingar vid flera olika tillfällen, genom donationer, försäljningar och utmätningar, redan under Tessins livstid, och via auktioner efter hans död. Det stora biblioteket såldes till kronprinsen redan 1757, och därefter skapades det "Nya biblioteket". Här har boken gått omvägen via Schröder till Ericsberg

Signatures: Engraved title-page, A4-K4, L6. Pagination: [1}-38, [2], 39-84, [7]; between E3 and E4 there is an unpaginated leaf with special instructions to the bookbinder to insert this leaf between the copper plates of old and new Oetingen ("Der Buchbinder wird hiemit erinnert diese Beschreibung..."). The work ends with a six-page index and a final page giving instructions to the bookbinder as to where maps and plates are to be placed. Decorative lead letters, head- and tail-pieces. Two maps and 52 plates showing 91 views, plans, buildings, and others when you count all illustrations including insets. ________ Binding is contemporaneous full vellum with rounded spine. Condition: Vellum covers soiled and evidence of ties, some soiling and light staining at places, a few plates mended at folds. Early remargin at bottom of leaf F1 (pages 41/42) affecting a few letters and some early brown spotting along the stub pasted to the Newstatt plate (between pp. 36/37); front fore-edge vellum turn-in beginning to pull away; a few marginal notations and ownership notation on front endpaper, all in an early hand, and small bookseller description pasted to verso of first endpaper. Even with these minor imperfections, overall the volume is a very sound and fine copy with nice sharp images of the fine engraved plates. ________ This exceptional picture book on Bavaria contains an engraved title page, a large armorial cut illustration (p. 69), two double-page maps, and 52 plates comprising 91 illustrations (some plates with insets) of town plans, views street scenes, and buildings, many being stub-mounted double page layouts (42) and some with additional foldouts (6) by the Swiss born engraver and publisher Matthaeus Merian (1593-1650). ________ Merian is best known for his twenty-one volume series with collaborator German geographer, Martin Zeiler (1589-1661) which is collectively called Topographia Germaniae series which is still regarded as one of the most important Seventeenth Century works of illustration. It&#146;s importance is belied by the facsimile edition of 1962 (Barenreiter Verlag, Kassel & Basel), This monumental achievement between 1642 and 1688 included over 2,000 plates etched and engraved by Merian and his sons Matthaus and Caspar. There are beautiful views of medieval Bavarian walled towns like Amberg, Auerbach, Bernau, Deckendorff, Erding, Fridberg, Mulldorff, Newstatt, Schrobenhausen, Weilmeim, and many others, All towns & cities are arranged in alphabetical order as one proceeds through the volume up to p. 71 at which point we begin with another alphabetical listing of smaller towns and villages including Dachau and many others.

        Lex, Rex: the Law and the Prince

      1644. first edition. The King Is Law!""No. The Law Is King""Then Burn That Book!" Said His MajestyRUTHERFORD, Samuel. Lex, Rex: The Law and the Prince. A Dispute for the just Prerogative of King and People. Containing the Reasons and Causes of the most necessary Defensive Wars of the Kingdom of Scotland, and of their expedition for the ayd and help of their dear Brethren of England. In which their Innocency is asserted, and a full Answer is given to a Seditious Pamphet, Intituled, Sacro-Sancta Regum Majestas, or The Sacred and Royall Prerogative of Christian Kings:... In XLIV Questions. London: Printed for John Field, and are to be sold at his house upon Addle-hill, neer Baynards-Castle, Octob. 7. 1644. First edition, complete. Quarto (7 1/8 x 5 3/8 in; 180 x 137 mm). 467 (i.e. 435) pp (A4, a-d4, B-Z4, Aa-Ii4, Kk-Rr2, Ss-Zz4, Aaa-Nnn4, Ooo2; error in pagination: nos. 281-312 omitted). Full late eighteenth century calf. Sprinkled edges. Margins trimmed to side notes with mild intrusion at a few leaves. Joints neatly, near invisibly repaired. Headcap restored A very good copy of a book rarely found in collectable condition, if found at all.The excessively scarce, enormously important treatise on limited government and constitutionalism, with only two complete copies falling under the hammer within the last thirty-five years.Lex, Rex [1644], along with Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos [Basel, 1579] and Locke&#39;s First Treatise of Government [1790], was responsible for the utter destruction of the divine right of kings as a political concept in Western civilization. In the turbulent times that were seventeenth century England, both the English monarchy and the Church of England underwent significant change, often brought about by bloody means. Rutherford&#39;s text was written at the height of conflict, when he spoke not only against monarchy as a form of government, but also spoke against both Roman Catholicism and the Church of England, in favor of the independence of the (Presbyterian) Church of Scotland. For his trouble, the publication of Lex, Rex was banned, and it was even made criminal to possess a copy. Rutherford himself was condemned to die, although he died of natural causes before sentence could be carried out.The first treatment of rule by law, not by men, based upon the separation of powers and covenant between king and subjects, (foreshadowing the social contract), and which laid the foundation for later political philosophers Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. As such, this volume sowed the seeds for modern political systems, including that of the United States."The title, Lex, Rex, is a play on the words that convey the meaning the law is king. When theologian Samuel Rutherford published the book in 1644, on the eve of the revolutions that rocked the English nation from 1645 through 1688, it caused a sensation, and provoked a great deal of controversy. It is ostensibly an argument for limited monarchy and against absolute monarchy, but its arguments were quickly perceived as subversive of monarchy altogether, and in context, we can perceive that it provided a bridge between the earlier natural law philosophers and those who would further develop their ideas: the Leveller movement and such men as Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Algernon Sidney, which laid the basis for the American Republic."This book has long been undeservedly neglected by scholars, probably because it is written as a polemic in the political and sectarian controversies that are distasteful to later generations, and many of its references are somewhat obscure, but a closer reading reveals how it laid the foundation for the contractarian and libertarian ideas that came to be embodied in the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution."Rutherford&#39;s main idea is that in the politic realm the real sovereign is the people, and that all officials, including monarchs, are subject to the rule of law, a phrase Rutherford uses only once, in Question 26, "Whether the King be above the Law or no", but this is the book that developed the contrast between the rule of law and the rule of men. He does not use the term social contract, but does develop the earlier idea of covenant in a way that leads naturally to the idea of the social contract. He also develops the idea of a separation of powers between legislative (nomothetic), executive (monarchic), and judicial functions, in a way that they can balance one another, in a mixed constitutional order that combines the best features of monarchic, aristocratic, and democratic forms of government."What made the book controversial was Rutherford&#39;s argument that not only does the magistrate lose his authority when he violates the law, but that it is a right, and perhaps even a duty, for the people to resist such violations" (Roland Jon. Introduction to Lex. Rex, 2002 edition, at Rutherford (c.1600&#150;1661) "published a number of major works, including Lex, Rex, or, The Law and the Prince (1644), a lengthy and sometimes bitter defence of armed resistance to Charles I. It was written in response to Sacro-sancta regum majestas (1644) by the deposed bishop of Ross, John Maxwell, and drew on Calvinist resistance theory and the political theory of Spanish neo-scholastics. It argued that legitimate government was grounded in a covenant between king and people. Because Charles I had violated his covenant with the Scottish people by trying to force idolatry upon them, they had been duty bound to resist him by force under the authority of lesser magistrates."The restoration of Charles II in 1660 augured ill for Rutherford. In September the committee of estates issued a declaration against Lex, Rex and copies of the book were burned in Edinburgh and outside New College in St Andrews. Rutherford was deprived of his position in the university, his charge in the church, and his stipend, and was confined to his own house. He was cited to appear before parliament on a charge of treason and his friends feared that he might well face execution. However, early in 1661 Rutherford fell seriously ill. On 8 March he issued a last will and testimony, and near the end of the month he died, at St Mary&#39;s College, St Andrews" (Oxford Online DNB).Wing R2386.

        Journal ou Suite du Voyage de Siam. En Forme des Lettres Familieres Fait en M. DC. LXXXV. Et M. DC. LXXXVI

      Small 8vo (6 1/4x4), period vellum, inked spine title, [4], 377, [3] pp. Vellum is a little stained and soiled, internally clean; a very nice copy. Choisy (1644-1724) was a missionary that was sent to Siam by Louis XIV to convert the king of Siam to Christianity. The format for this work is a diary that provides details of his trip. Prior to joining the missionary, Choisy appears to be an eccentric character, who was known to dress in woman's clothes. His memoirs were first published in 1732, and it appears they are still in print. The current work was first published in Paris a year earlier, and a second edition appears to have come out came out in that same year (1687).
