        Amsterdam - Hugues Picart + Jean Boisseau, 1647.

      UITERST ZELDZAAM PROFIEL VAN AMSTERDAM?Profil de la renommee ville et port demstredam cappitalle des estats de Hollande?. Ets met droge naald gedrukt op 2 bladen, vervaardigd 1647 door Hugues Picart en uitgegeven door Jean Boisseau. Afm.: 24 x 73 cm (afbeelding), 27,5 x 73 (incl. tekst).De gravure komt voor in het Théâtre des Citez, een van de zeldzaamste Franse boeken met stadsgezichten. Hiervoor maakte meester graveur Hugues Picart tussen 1641 en 1648 achtentwintig grote profielen van Europese en Aziatische steden. Vanaf 1648 werden de bladen ook los verkocht.Bij het Amsterdamse stadsarchief ligt een exemplaar met rechtsonder de voorstelling de vermelding ?A Paris chez Jean Boisseau 1647?. Ons exemplaar vermeldt slechts ?A Paris Chez?, conform nr. 42 van A.E. d?Ailly?s ?Repertorium van de profilen der stad Amsterdam? (1953). D?Ailly noemt als vervaadigingsjaar ca. 1630. Het is echter waarschijnlijker dat het hier om een vanaf 1648 los uitgegeven blad gaat.We zien van links naar rechts het bolwerk Rijzenhoofd, de Peperwerf, de Montelbaans-, Zuiderkerks- en Regulierstorens, de Waag op de Nieuwmarkt, ?l?hotel Dieu?(Diaconie Oude Mannen- en Vrouwenhuis, thans Hermitage Amsterdam), de Waalse Kerk, de Scheierstoren, de Oudezijdskapel, de Oude Kerk, de Beurs, de Engelse Kerk, de Vismarkt, de Dam, de Waag op de Dam, het Stadshuis met stompe toren, de St. Jacobskapel, de Nieuwe Kerk, de Roodenpoorts- en Haringpakkerstorens (?lieu ou on encaque le hareng?), de Wester- en Noorderkerk, het Bickerstorentje, de Haarlemmerpoort, de zoutziederijen (?saline ou on blanchit le sel?, tegenwoordig is hier de zoutkeetsgracht) en het Blauwhoofd. Voor de stad de ?Rivierre de lye?met daaran twee tolhuizen en de stadsherberg (?maison publique?). Het Nieuwe Waalseiland (gebouwd in 1644) is nog niet aangegeven, het gebouw op de Herenmarkt is als Westindisch Huis aangeduid (het werd in 1657 als Herenlogement ingericht). Het Westindisch Pakhuis (gebouwd in 1641) komt ook nog niet voor op de prent.Van Jean Boisseau (actief tussen 1637-1658) weten we dat hij in 1631 werkte als ?meester verluchter? [dus iemand die handschriften met miniatuurschilderingen verfraaid] en vanaf 1635 als ?afsetter?: ?Enlumineur de cartes marines?/? ?Enlumineur du Roy pour les cartes geographiques ? [kleurder van kaarten dus].Prijs: ?2.950,-.

Title page soiled and browned with erased stamp (paper restored) and shelf number A.142.4 in ink, text only mildly toned throughout, small dampstaining to upper corner. A fine copy. ----Brunet III, 1662; Sotheran II, 11782; Honeyman 2217; Sotheby's Macclesfield Cat. V, 1374. - The very rare supplement in first edition to Mersenne's Cogitata physico-mathematica and Universae geometriae mixtaeque mathematicae synopsis, which form vols. 1 and 2 of the series published in 1644. This 3rd volume is a collection of essays concerning mechanics, pneumatics, hydrostatics, navigation, the techniques for establishing weights and measures and an examination of Aristarchus' heliocentric theory. As one of the most fascinating intellectual figures of the seventeenth century, Mersenne is well known for his relationships with many outstanding contemporary scholars as well as for his friendship with Descartes. Moreover, his own contributions to natural philosophy have an interest of their own. Mersenne worked on the main scientific questions debated in his time, such as the law of free fall, the principles of Galileo's mechanics, the law of refraction, the propagation of light, the vacuum problem, the hydrostatic paradox, and the Copernican hypothesis. Mersenne contributed to spread Galileo's writings in France as well as the ideas of thinkers such as Hobbes and Roberval. He dealt with almost every one of the mixed and pure mathematical sciences and first collected a number of treatises on geometry and mixed mathematics in the two editions of his Synopsis (Synopsis Mathematica, 1626; Universae geometriae synopsis, 1644). He composed several treatises on music (Traité de l'harmonie universelle, 1627; Questions harmoniques, 1634; Les preludes de l'harmonie universelle, 1634; Harmonie universelle, 1636; Harmonicorum libri XII, 1648) and optics (De Natura lucis, 1623; Opticae, 1644; L'Optique et la catoptrique, 1651). (Malet and Cozzoli, Mersenne and Mixed Mathematics, 2010, pp.1-8). Whereas the first two volumes of this series are fairly well represented in libraries, this third volume is of considerable rarity. Only one copy of this volume has appeared at auction in the past 30 years (the Macclesfield copy). Very Good.

Contemporary full calf boards paneled in gilt, spine rebacked in period style with red morocco lettering piece gilt, marbled edges and end papers. A Fine copy, tightly bound, pages fresh and bright, with excellent impressions of the plates; minor marginal staining to first few leaves, repairs to explanatory leaf opposite first frontispiece. Pforzheimer 390 and 92 (for first editions). Lowndes 847 (citing this edition of The Holy State as "best"). Wither to Prior 386 and 387. Wing F2438 and F2444. Allibone, p. 643. Fine The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English. In his judgment, the Papacy, in waging them, had spent European lives and wealth for nothing more than a faraway plot of land and a few relics. The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller's celebrated studies in virtue and vice?"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)?provides rule of conduct, offering as exemplars a rich collection of model characters, along with short biographies of historical figures from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis Drake to St. Augustine and Joan of Arc. Allibone calls it, "Perhaps . . . the best of his works; and certainly [it] displays to better advantage than any his original and vigorous powers of thinking."

        Syntagma anatomicum. Locis plurimis auctum, emendatum, novisque iconibus diligenter exornatum.

      Padua: P. Frambotti, 1647. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (250 x 195 mm). [16], 274, [14] pp, including additional engraved title page depicting the anatomical theater at Padua, and 24 engraved copperplates (one outside pagination). Contemporary half tanned leather (extremities worn, corners of boards heavily scuffed), paper shelf label to spine. Internally only very little browned, faded dampstain to gutter of a few leaves. Extensive ink marginalia in a neat early hand throughout. Provenance: D.G.Seidel (signature on title-page); Library of the Count of Solms-Wildenfels (armorial bookplate inscribed "Comes de Solms" to front pastedown). Internally a fine, crisp copy. ----NLM/Krivatsy 12328; Waller 9931; Osler 4166; Choulant-Frank p.243; Roberts & Tomlinson, p.236-239. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION (after the octavo first edition of 1641) with plates by Giovanni Georgi. Remarkably, the first edition was not illustrated, reflecting the reality that it was still possible to sell books on anatomy at this time without reference to images. Notably, the copperplates in this first illustrated edition bear little or no relationship to the powerfully influential woodcuts of Vesalius' Fabrica. In spite of its aesthetic limitations, Vesling's book found a ready market, and was reissued numerous times and translated into the main European languages including English. The plates were "intended for the commonest needs but are mostly original engravings and represent some organs of the human body more correctly than their predecessors. They were very popular at the time of their appearance and have been frequently re-engraved" (Choulant-Frank, p.243). This true first edition is scarcer than previosuly assumed, as most copies belong to a generally unsuspected counterfeit edition printed by the atlas publisher Johannes Janssonius of Amersterdam (F. Oyens, Jan Janssen as counterfeiter and pirate, Quaerendo vol. IX, 1979, p.351). In December 1632, Johann Wesling (1598-1649) was appointed professor of anatomy and surgery at Padua University. In 1638, he was appointed to the chair of botany, and left the chair of surgery but retained the chair of anatomy. Wesling was born in Minden, Westphalia. His Catholic family had probably left Vienna to escape religious persecution. (A. Porzionato et al., The Anatomical School of Padua. The Anatomical Record, Vol. 295, no. 6, 2012, p.908). Very Good.

        Epigrammatum. Editio Postrema, correctissima, & posthumis quibusdam adaucta.

      Amsterdam: Elzevier, 1647. 18mo (9,6 x 5,2 cm). (4), 212 pp. Full calf, covers with gilt filets, board edges with gilt-decorated elements, spine with 3 gilt fleurons, green morocco gilt-lettered label and 3 raised bands. With engraved title page and engraved portrait as frontispiece. John Owen [c.1560 - 1622] was a Welsh Latin poet. He was a headmaster of Henry VIII's school at Warwick for some years but then moved to London and became a professional poet. Altogether, he published 10 books of epigrams. His epigrams became almost overnight very popular throughout Europe. Dutch and German publishers were the first to gather the different books together into a single, unified publication. Because of his perfect mastery of the Latin language, his epigrams earned him an enduring reputation as the "British Martial", after the Roman poet Marcus Valerius Martialis. This is an interesting and unique copy. There are probably at least four editions of this 1647-Elzevier-edition. Willems states that there are three and our copy is certainly not mentioned by him. This edition also not in the Elsevier Heritage Collection. This is the third of the four Louis Elzevier-1647-editions that are mentioned by the STCN; curiously however, the portrait in our copy is not mentioned there by the STCN, as is also conform the collation-formula of that copy. The engraved title page, unsigned and as frontispiece an engraved portrait of Owen, also unsigned. With a headpiece and an endpiece. Fine antiquarian condition. Small damage to upper spine compartment, name on first flyleaf, otherwise fine. A charming, very small, miniature Elzevier-edition, vey nice binding, excellent copy of a rare edition.

        Watercolour of a wallflower and a double hyacinth, with inchworm moths, larvae and pupae].[Amsterdam, ca. 1700]. Watercolour drawing (38 x 29 cm) on extremely fine white parchment, said to be uterine lamb, showing a wallflower and a double hyacinth with two inchworm moths in the air (2 different species) and two inchworms and two pupae on the leaves and flowers. Framed.

      - Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian & dochters, ill. 110 (p. 147; a nearly identical drawing of the same wallflower specimen with 1 butterfly); Wettengl, Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, kunstenares en natuuronderzoekster, no. 120 (ill. 44 on p. 85; a similar watercolour including the same wallflower specimen, with no insects). Characteristic original watercolour botanical drawing by Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-post 1721), the eldest daughter of Maria Sibylla Merian and Johann Andreas Graff. It shows a wallflower (Cheiranthus cheiri) and double hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) with two inchworm moths (Geometriae) in the air, two inchworms and two pupae. She probably drew it in Amsterdam around 1700. Though she still remains in the shadow of her mother, she was a fine flower and insect artist in her own right and there is growing appreciation of her work. Her watercolours, more baroque than her mother's and often with brighter colours, radiate vigour and vivacity: the flowers, painted with intensity in every detail, really come to life. Reitsma, p. 135, notes that the prices for the flower watercolours increased with the number of insects, so the present watercolour must have been unusually expensive. Most of Herolt's work is numbered and the present watercolour is numbered "145"[?] on the back. The published catalogues rarely note the numbers, but we understand the highest number known is 164.Characteristic watercolour in fine state of preservation, with certificate of authenticity from Dr. S. Segal, Amsterdam. Herolt herself may have revised the upper part of the hyacinth.

Three rare editions in one volume, two by Cartesian physicians on medicine and pharmacology, the third on practical chemistry, also with medical applications:Ad 1: First edition of a general introduction to medicine and pharmacology by the Dutch Cartesian physician Cornelis Bontekoe (1647-1685). It reflects the modern scientific method that had made Bontekoe a controversial figure, beginning with matters of chemistry before moving on to medicines derived from minerals, animals and plants, then discussing various ailments. Part 2 comprises a 58-page pharmacopoeia.Ad 2: First edition of a Latin adaptation of a Dutch handbook of practical medicine by the Dutch Cartesian physician, chemist, pharmacologist and entomologist Steven Blankaart (1650-1704). It discusses a wide variety of ailments and their treatment, giving recipes for medicines. Blankaart was an early user of Van Leeuwenhoek's new microscopes, and the blood vessels shown in one of the plates may have been based on microscopic views. Ad 3: Rare third edition of a Latin treatise on practical chemistry by Giovanni Francesco Vigani (ca. 1650-1712) from Verona, who apparently had no university education but was to become professor of Chemistry at Cambridge in 1703.With an early owner's name at the head of the title-page struck through and another written below it by the medical writer Jacob(us) l'Hommart (1666/67-post 1702). All three works somewhat browned, but otherwise in good condition, ad 2 with a small marginal tear in 1 leaf and the foot of the margin of the outer 2 bifolia of its last quire cut 1 to 6 mm short. The binding good. Rare editions spreading what were then considered radical ideas concerning medicine.

        Gabrielis Naudaei... [Pentas] Quaestionum iatro-philologicarum

      [4] feuillets, 322-[4] pages Genevae, Apud Samuelem Chouët, 1647, in-8, [4] feuillets, 322-[4] pages, vélin souple de l'époque, dos recouvert au XVIIIe siècle de veau brun fleuronné portant une pièce de titre rouge, Première édition collective de ces travaux médicaux de Naudé, publiés à l'origine séparément dans les années 1630, sous forme de quaestiones : I. An magnum homini a venenis periculum ? II. An vita hominum hodie quam olim breuior ? III. An matutina studia vespertinis salubriora ? IV. An liceat medico fallere aegrotum ? V. De fato et fatali vitae termino ; La cinquième question se rapporte à la controverse philosophique qui opposa Naudé au médecin hollandais Jan Beverwijk au sujet de la détermination du moment de la mort. Gabriel Naudé (1600-1653) fut l'ami de Guy Patin (1601-1672), qu'il rencontra au cours de ses études de médecine. Il fut le bibliothécaire du cardinal de Richelieu, puis de Mazarin. Cet exemplaire aurait été donné par l'auteur à son ancien propriétaire, comme l'atteste l' "Ex dono auctoris" manuscrit au titre. Par ailleurs, il provient de la bibliothèque du chirurgien Sauveur-François Morand (1697-1773), avec son étiquette ex-libris, et de celle de l'aliéniste Jules Falret (1824-1902), fils du célèbre alinéniste Jean-Pierre Falret ; Jules Falret fut de même un très bon médecin, réputé.

        BIBLIA En Lengua ESPANOLA, [BIBLIA DE FERRARA, 1647]

      - Traduzida palabra por palabra de la verdad Hebrayca, por muy excelentes letrados. Vista y examinad a per el officio de la Inquisicion. Con Privilegio del Illustrissimo Señor Duque de Ferrara. En Amsterdam. Impressesadorie de Gillis Ioost, en el Nieuwe-straet, 5606 [aliás 1647], [data errada, e corrigida para 5416, na era cristã de 1655]. [Colofón: «FINIS: a loor y gloria del Dio fue reformada. A 15. de Sebath, 5390 [na era cristã de 1630]. In folio [36x22,5 cm] com [20], 605 pags. [o primeiro fólio não numerado em branco pretence à edição e encontra-se presente]. Encadernação da época inteira de pele sobre pranchas de madeira de casquinha; gravadas com ferros rolados a seco em esquadrias concêntricas de motivos florais. Corte das folhas carminado. A lombada com nervos apresentando os cantos e as coifas danificados e as charneiras cansadas. As pastas pouco solidas em relação à lombada. A encadernação deve ser restaurada ou seja consolidada. Obra adornada com magnifico frontispício gravado ilustrado com cenas biblicas assinado por Cornelius Muller. Esta edição da Bíblia de Ferrara encontra-se impressa em caracteres romanos dispostos em duas colunas. Exemplar com asinaturas de posse da época manuscritas nas folhas de guarda apresentando tambem Menorás e as suas medidas sagradas. O exemplar apresenta vestígios d e humidade e alguma acidez propria do papel com mais incidencia nos primeiros e nos últimos fólios. As folhas das guardas anteriores encontram-se coladas às pastas por efeito da humidade. Quarta edição da Bíblia de Ferrara publicada em Amesterdão em 1646. Não são conhecidos exemplares desta edição na BNP. O frontispício é uma bela gravura de Cornelius Muller, contendo representações de Adão e Eva no Jardim do Éden; a sua expulsão do Paraíso; as figuras de Moisés e Aron, etc. No reverso da folha de rosto encontra-se o Prefácio da edição de 1553, seguido do ordenamento da Haphtorah, uma Tabela da Ordem dos Livros, Capítulos, etc., e o Catálogo de Juízes, etc., tal com na primeira edição desta bíblia. Depois do Catálogo dos Juízes existe uma tabela da divisão da Bíblia em Paraschae, de acordo com os Hebreus. Na folha de rosto existe uma alteração manuscrita na data, originalmente tipografada 5606; um erro inusitado visto tratar-se da era cristã de 1846. Notar que este ano de 5606 é uma data assumida na antiguidade para a cronologia da redenção dos judeus. Trata-se de uma reedição feita a partir da terceira edição impressa 1630 da Bíblia de Ferrara, ambas revistas e corrigidas por Manasseh ben Israel. As traduções da terceira e da quarta edição da Biblia de Ferrara são atribuidas ao famoso tipografo português e professor da comunidade hebraica portuguesa de Amesterdão Menasseh Ben Israel. No entanto, tipograficamente, estas edições são muito diferentes, principalmente pelo facto da terceira edição de 1630 apresentar uma folha de rosto simples (que é idêntica à da edição de 1611, ilustrada ao centro com a Arca da Aliança) e a quarta edição de 1647 ser adornada com um magnifico frontispicio gravado ilustrado com cenas biblicas da autoria de Cornelius Muller. A famosa Biblia de Ferrara ou Biblia dos Sefarditas (judeus de origem ibérica) foi traduzida de Hebraico para Ladino (dialecto do castelhano utilizado pelos sefarditas) e impressa em Ferrara no ano de 1553 pelo famoso impressor português Abrão Usque (de nome cristão Duarte Pinhel) irmão de Samuel Usque (autor da obra Consolação ás Tribulações de Israel) à custa de Yom Tob Atias (de nome cristão Geronimo de Vargas Hespanhol). A publicação das várias edições foi um trabalho realizado por judeus (cristãos-novos conversos de primeira geração) de origem portuguesa e castelhana, que ao serem expulsos da Peninsula Ibérica pela Inquisição, estabeleceram-se primeiro em Itália e depois na Holanda, aqui já fora do jugo da Inquisição. Na impressão da primeira edição desta obra, que saiu com licença da Inquisição, utilizaram-se belos caractéres góticos. A referida 1ª edição consta de dua

HAPPEL Eberhard Werner Guerner (1647-1690) Schriftsteller, Polyhistor u. Historiker. Der Sohn eines lutherisch reformierten Pfarrers studierte ab 1663 Mathematik, Medizin und später auch Jura in Marburg. Seit 1668 lebte er in Magdeburg, Harburg u. zuletzt in Hamburg, wo er seine schriftstellerische Tätigkeit aufnahm. Einem einjährigen Aufenthalt in Kiel, folgte 1674-79 eine Anstellung in Holstein. Danach kehrte er nach Hamburg zurück und lebte dort als Lehrer und Schriftsteller, bis er ebenda im Alter von 42 Jahren verstarb. Er schrieb umfangreiche höfisch-galante Geschichtsromane und gilt als einer der großen Romanschriftsteller des späten 17. Jahrhunderts. Goed. schreibt dazu wenig schmeichelhaft: "Seine Romane waren ihrer Zeit ebenso beliebt, wie die Luise Mühlbach in neuerer Zeit und ebenso wertlos wie diese." Daneben trat er als Übersetzer des Valerius Maximus und Autor historischer Werke, insbesondere der "Relationes curiosae", hervor. Vorliegender Roman erschien posthum. In der nicht unterzeichneten Vorrede wird H. nicht ausdrücklich als tot bezeichnet, doch deutlich gesagt, daß in seiner Manier fortgeschrieben sei. Es erschienen dann noch 2 weitere Werke unter seinem Namenschiffre im gleichen Verlag. Es fehlt eine in den Anweisungen für den Buchbinder angeführte Tabelle. Das Porträt zeigt den bayrischen Kurfürsten Maximilian II. Emanuel, der der Widmungsträger des vorliegenden Werkes ist.

        Amsterdam - Hugues Picart + Jean Boisseau, 1647.

      UITERST ZELDZAAM PROFIEL VAN AMSTERDAM'Profil de la renommee ville et port demstredam cappitalle des estats de Hollandeâ?'. Ets met droge naald gedrukt op 2 bladen, vervaardigd 1647 door Hugues Picart en uitgegeven door Jean Boisseau. Afm.: 24 x 73 cm (afbeelding), 27,5 x 73 (incl. tekst).De gravure komt voor in het Théâtre des Citez, een van de zeldzaamste Franse boeken met stadsgezichten. Hiervoor maakte meester graveur Hugues Picart tussen 1641 en 1648 achtentwintig grote profielen van Europese en Aziatische steden. Vanaf 1648 werden de bladen ook los verkocht.Bij het Amsterdamse stadsarchief ligt een exemplaar met rechtsonder de voorstelling de vermelding 'A Paris chez Jean Boisseau 1647â?'. Ons exemplaar vermeldt slechts 'A Paris Chezâ?', conform nr. 42 van A.E. d'Ailly's 'Repertorium van de profilen der stad Amsterdamâ?' (1953). D'Ailly noemt als vervaadigingsjaar ca. 1630. Het is echter waarschijnlijker dat het hier om een vanaf 1648 los uitgegeven blad gaat.We zien van links naar rechts het bolwerk Rijzenhoofd, de Peperwerf, de Montelbaans-, Zuiderkerks- en Regulierstorens, de Waag op de Nieuwmarkt, 'l'hotel Dieuâ?'(Diaconie Oude Mannen- en Vrouwenhuis, thans Hermitage Amsterdam), de Waalse Kerk, de Scheierstoren, de Oudezijdskapel, de Oude Kerk, de Beurs, de Engelse Kerk, de Vismarkt, de Dam, de Waag op de Dam, het Stadshuis met stompe toren, de St. Jacobskapel, de Nieuwe Kerk, de Roodenpoorts- en Haringpakkerstorens ('lieu ou on encaque le harengâ?'), de Wester- en Noorderkerk, het Bickerstorentje, de Haarlemmerpoort, de zoutziederijen ('saline ou on blanchit le selâ?', tegenwoordig is hier de zoutkeetsgracht) en het Blauwhoofd. Voor de stad de 'Rivierre de lyeâ?'met daaran twee tolhuizen en de stadsherberg ('maison publiqueâ?'). Het Nieuwe Waalseiland (gebouwd in 1644) is nog niet aangegeven, het gebouw op de Herenmarkt is als Westindisch Huis aangeduid (het werd in 1657 als Herenlogement ingericht). Het Westindisch Pakhuis (gebouwd in 1641) komt ook nog niet voor op de prent.Van Jean Boisseau (actief tussen 1637-1658) weten we dat hij in 1631 werkte als 'meester verluchter' [dus iemand die handschriften met miniatuurschilderingen verfraaid] en vanaf 1635 als 'afsetter': 'Enlumineur de cartes marinesâ?'/ 'Enlumineur du Roy pour les cartes geographiques â?' [kleurder van kaarten dus].Prijs: € 2.950,- .

        De l'état de l'homme apres le peche et de sa prédestination au salut. Où l'on examine les sentiments communs et où l'on explique ce que l'Ecriture Sainte nous en dit. [Text Französisch].

      (gering kratzspurig, innen am oberen Schnitt teils etwas knapp beschnitten ohne Textverlust, nur sehr wenig gebräunt oder braunfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten) Le Cène (um 1647 - 1703) war ein französischer Theologe von hugenottischer Herkunft, der in den Niederlanden und in England wirkte. Studiert hatte er in Sedan, Genf und Saumur, 1672 wurde er in Caen protestantisch ordiniert. Er wirkte in Honfleur und Charenton, bis er nach dem Widerruf des Ediktes von Nantes nach Den Haag floh. Die letzten Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er in England, wo er auch starb. Er war radikaler Rationalist, der den orthodoxen Theologen der reformierten Kirche entgegentrat. Le Cène ging von der Überlegenheit der menschlichen Vernunft aus und las aus der Bibel die Grösse des Menschen heraus, was im Gegensatz zur orthodoxen Lesart stand, die die Verdorbenheit des Menschen betonte. Seine rationalistische Kritik mündete wie bei Sozzini in eine ethische Akzentuierung des Christentums - teils frei zitiert nach Erich Haase, "Einführung in die Literatur des Refuge", 1959. Der Einband ist signiert "Bagguley", das ist George Thomas Bagguley (1860 - nach 1934), tätig in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.
