[Charles I, King of England 1600 - 1649]. [Gauden, John]
[London]:: Reprinted in Regis Memoriam for John Williams,. 1649.. 24mo: A - H12; ¦12 - 2¦12. 3-13/16" x 2". 1st issue of this edition of Eikon (Madan 34; Almack 37; Wing E-301). 3rd edition of the Papers (Madan 99; Wing C-2535B; cf. Goldsmith 1143, for the 8vo edition), and the one oft found with this miniature edition of Eikon. [8], 175, [9]; [4], 42, [2] pp. Eikon t.p. printed in red & black.. Period brown full calf binding; flat back with 3 raised bands.. Binding worn, with front joint tender. A1 detached. Some leaves. closely trimmed, occasionally affecting running title. A Good copy.. An unusual & scarce edition of this famous Royalist publication, purporting to be the memoirs of the recently executed King. So controversial was it that Parliament commissioned an answer with John Milton's Eikonoklastes. Milton was the first to cast doubt on its authorship, and Madan's New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike demonstrated that while Dr. John Gauden was the author, he worked closely from Charles' manuscripts. . Folding frontis (22, second state), preceded by Explanation I. Folding portrait (11: King, Queen, Charles & James).

ROGERS, Daniel, et al.
1649. (ROGERS, Daniel, et al.) THE ESSEX WATCHMEN'S WATCHWORD to the inhabitants of the said county respectively, dwelling under their several charges, by way of Apologetical Account, of the true Grounds of their first Engagement with them in the Cause of God, King and Parliament, for their Vindication from unjust Aspersions. Also by way of faithful Premonition of the dangerous evil latent in a printed Paper, entituled, The Agreement of the People, intended to be Tendred to them for Subscription. London: Printed for Ralph Smith, at the sign of the Bible near the Royal Exchange, 1649. First edition. The last two pages are a printed list of 63 ministers, beginning with Daniel Rogers, who endorsed this publication. The imprimatur (Ja. Cranford, 15 February 1648) is printed at the bottom of the last page. Small quarto. A-B4 18.2 x 14 cm.

Ex library, with minimal marks: an oval ink stamp on the outer margin, and a small library number on the inner margin of p. 1. This tract was written in support of `The Agreement of the People,' the army's petition for tolerance, when it was sent down for the Essex ministers to sign. Daniel Rogers (1573-1652) drew up `The Essex Watchmen's Watchword' on behalf of the presbyterians, and was the first to sign it, protesting against the toleration of any who refused to sign the 'Agreement.' A couple of small spots on the t.p., else a clean and very good copy. Rare. (D.N.B.; Wing E3342A).

GALILEI, Galileo
Ravenna: Stamp. Camerali, 1649. Rare first edition in the original Italian of Galileo’s early treatise on mechanics, a precursor to the research that he would present in his Discorsi. This popular treatise, widely circulated in manuscript form, is effectively a “bridge between statics and dynamics,” and according to Drake, “far superior to other available works on the subject” (Galileo on Motion and Mechanics, p. 137).<br/><br/> & & “Galileo presents… the analysis of simple machines… in an unusual way. He is justly celebrated in this tract for his use and explication of the principle of virtual velocities” (Clagett in Drake, viii). Incorporating elements from Aristotle, Archimedes, Pappus, Philoponus, Jordanus and others, Della Scienza Mecanica offers “a coherent and illuminating exposition of the foundations of mechanics.” Drake explains that while little of the content of Della Scienza Mecanica found its way into the Discorsi (with the exception of a discussion of the lever, Galileo omitted the time-honored topic of simple machines, choosing to emphasize his newer findings on dynamics), the Scienza shows “unmistakable novelty,” and represents an important stepping stone in Galileo’s intellectual development; early investigations into conservation of energy and the principle of inertia can be traced here. <br/><br/>& & Della Scienza Mecanica is based on a series of lectures on aspects of statics and of simple machines delivered by Galileo for his pupils at Padua in the 1590s. In Drake’s estimation, … [Click Below for Full Description]
