Penn, William:
[London]. 1670.. 71pp. plus errata. Small quarto. Modern red calf. Uniformly tanned and foxed. About very good. One of the most important incidents in the early life of William Penn was his trial in September 1670 on charges of unlawful assembly and disturbing the peace. He and another Quaker, William Mead, were tried in the Old Bailey. The bench attempted to intimidate the jury into a guilty verdict, and although both men were found not guilty, they both served time in jail. In 1670 a pamphlet on the trial was produced, loosely attributed to Penn and called THE PEOPLES ANCIENT AND JUST LIBERTIES ASSERTED.... Samuel Starling, the Lord Mayor of London and one of the judges in the trial, responded with a pamphlet of his own the same year. In the present pamphlet Penn, assisted by Quaker lawyer Thomas Rudyard, offers his spirited response to Starling's work. "This pamphlet reflects a new side of [William Penn], for instead of the reasonable and cultivated gentleman and Quaker, we find a deeply incensed young man defending his father's honor [Penn's father helped secure his release from prison] and slashing out at his persecutor" - Bronner & Fraser. Penn defends his father's honor and military record, reviews the facts of his trial, and considers the power and role of juries. An important and scarce early work on the role of the judiciary, by the future founder of Pennsylvania. BRONNER & FRASER, PENN BIBLIOGRAPHY 11. SMITH, FRIENDS' BOOKS II:286. WING P1392.

Ferrer de Valdecebro, A.
- Madrid, M. Alegre, 1670. 4to, 20 ll, 205 numbered leaves (a few inconsistent), 15 ll of tabla general (general index), and one engraved portrait of San Vicente Ferrer and 18 engravings in the text, all of the birds discussed. Limp vellum with beautifully contemporary calligraphed title on the spine. New flyleaves.* Rare first illustrated edition. An interesting mixture of fact and fancy that throws much light on popular ideas regarding the ornithology of Spain in the 17th century, in which (with some information of value) one finds the usual pious adjuncts to be expected from this author. Although Wood only quotes 17 plates, we think it should have 18 as our copy has. It deals with the Aguila (eagle), Buytre (buzzard), Cigueña (stork), Garza or Garça (heron), Cisne (swan), Fenix, Pelicano (but the illustration suggests that the writer did not know this bird), Halcon (falcon), Gavilan (harrier), Buho (owl), Grulla (crane), Papagayo (parrot), Ansaron (goose), Avestruz (ostrich), Pavo Real (peacock), Cuervo (crow), Paloma (pigeon), and the Gallo (chicken). Some marginal foxing and one right corner of the text (p. 143) with some slight loss of paper, but without touching the text itself. New flyleaves and a library stamp on the title-page. Palau 90597 mentions a first, unillustrated edition from 1668. However, we find no references to that edition elsewhere. In any case, this is the first illustated edition, with an engraved portrait of the author. The Licencia de la Orden is dated 30 de Setiembre 1669, the Aprobation Octubre 23 de 1669. Several later editions appeared. Casey … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blake, William, Housekeeper (not the poet)
[London, 1670]. 8vo, 292, (1) pp. with 4 engraved plates at the front. Original black morocco with simple gilt decorated panels of ornaments on the covers, a fine copy. First edition. A famous example of a publication for charity. Several copies were bound for presentation in an elaborate fashion, with individual presentation gilt stamps on the covers (See Mirjam Foot, "The Charity School Binder," The Book Collector, Spring, 1983). William Blake (not the poet) was the founder and keeper of the Ladies Charity School, a boarding house school for homeless or destitute children which was entirely dependent on charitable contributions. Here Blake thanks his patrons and appeals to other ladies for charity. The second part of the text, Silver Drops, or Serious Things, is a treatise by Blake on charity. Wing B-3152.

Four tiny worm-holes to upper front hinge, just touching front free end-papers and nothing else. Minor edge-wear, but a nice, clean, and tight binding. Ex-libris stamps to title-page (one being R.D.-E. Gelin's, the other unlegible but probably a theological library). Mostly very faint marginal dampstaining to lower margin thorughout, not touching text. Neat old owner's name to inside of front board (Soldner). Without the two blank leaves between the end of the dedication and the beginning of the text (there is clearly no leaf with any text lacking; there is either a pagination-error, or there has been one or two blank leaves between the end of the dedication and the beginning of the work. In the other copies that we have been able to find collations of, there has been no leaf a4 nor A1 either - there is no doubt that the text is complete), and without the blank leaf after the end of Part One, but with two blanks at the end of Part Two.

Cambridge: Printed by John Hayes, 1670. [8],296pp. Octavo. Modern three quarter tan calf and marbled boards. Some occasional light foxing or mild spotting, otherwise a very good copy, quite neatly bound. First edition. One of the naturalist and theologian's most significant out-of-genre works, assembled over a span of at least a decade, and drawing upon his own observations, the works of Fuller, Howell, Camden, Herbert and others, as well as oral and unpublished sources to compile as comprehensive as possible a collection of "short Sentence[s] or Phrase[s] in common use containing some Trope, Figure, Homonymy, Rhythme, or other novity of expression" - Preface. Its publication raised considerable interest, and submissions from readers and friends swelled the second edition of 1678 by "some hundreds" of additions. However, from the second edition he omitted a significant number of proverbs that proved offensive to "sober and pious persons...." KEYNES 10. ESTC R13689. WING R386.

Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey. Fine+. 2009. First Edition; First Printing; Signed by Artist. Hardcover. The edition is 40 numbered copies: The Press copies (numbers 16 - 40) , this copy, are quarter-bound in leather by Claudia Cohen with a unique paste paper for the boards, incorporating a repeating calligraphic HM pattern. These copies have been signed by artist Andrea Taylor. A Press copy, numbered 38; Printed by the author with a Washington press, on dampened sheets of Heavenly Monkey Text paper made specially for this project. The text is set in Dante and Dante Titling, and printed in two colors. Rather than a manual concerned with how to print damp, the text draws on sources such as Eric Gill, Porter Garnett, William Everson and Harry Duncan to focus on why. The essay that forms the core of the bulk - the discussion of damp printing - focuses on how changes in printing methods and materials over the past century are (and are not) reflected in contemporary letterpress publishing. Differences in printing techniques (primarily the results of dry vs damp) will be demonstrated, augmented by four sample leaves spanning four centuries interspersed through the essay: one sample of early printing ( Praestantium Ac Eruditorum Vivorvm Epistoae Et Theologoicae, Henriuvm Dendrinvm, Amsterdam 1670) ; a leaf from a mid-19th century book that combined steelpoint illustration with (dry) letterpress on a coated "art paper" of the period (Poems by Jean Ingelow, Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, London 1867) ; a leaf from a book printed damp under Bruce Rogers' direction at the Riverside … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reeve, John, & Lodowick Muggleton.
1670. John Reeve (1608-58) and his cousin Lodowick Muggleton (1609-98) were the founders of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching. In this piece Reeve argues for his view of the passion of Christ, and explains how God suffered in it. Appended is a short essay by Muggleton, explaining his view of the fall and of the mortality of the soul. The text of the lacking pp. 7-8 is supplied on three leaves in manuscript in a pretty and clear 18th-century hand. Opinion seems evenly divided as to whether this piece was published in 1670 or 1719.

Dryden, John
London: Printed for H. Herringman, at the sign of the Blew Anchor in the Lower Walk of the New Exchange, 1670. First edition. First issue with original leaf F3 intact. Quarto (215 x 170 mm), collates: title, [8], 66, [1]. Signatures: A4, a2, B-I4, K2. Lacking leaf A1, the blank preceding the title page. Bound in marbled wraps to style. Title page with some pulp fills, mainly along inner margin. Other pages with inner marginal worming, rarely affecting the text. Page 64 with lower corner missing, affecting final four lines with loss of a few words. Most pages with dog-eared corners, staining or some other minor defect, but text legible and complete. & & Dryden's tragedy, in rhymed couplets, of St. Catharine of Alexandria and her martyrdom at the hands of the lusty Roman Emperor Maximinus. Nell Gwyn (aka Ellen Guyn), mistress of Charles II, originated the role of Valeria, the tyrant's daughter. The rather pious and stately tragedy ends with a truly Restoration flourish, when stagehands come onstage to carry off the dead Valeria's corpse at the play's curtain and Gwyn jumps up to deliver "what must be the most amusing epilogue ever written" (Maximillian E. Novak, "The Works of John Dryden," University of California, 1970), chiding the "damn'd dull Poet" for killing her off and mocking his "godly out-of-fashion Play."

London 1670 - This is a very old book. This book was published in 1670. Most likely this is a First Edition but the actual title page is missing, but it has been supplied in manuscript. The book was rebound in the 1830's, because on the cover in Roman numerals it reads "1832". The binding is black leather with gold tooling. The gold tooling on the front and back covers are very elaborate. On the spine it has the title, below that a symbol or shield of some sort and below that is a date of the book in gold "1670". The binding is completely in tact, but has some scuffing and rubbing. For its age it is in great condition. Both boards are together and there are no tears to the pages. Two or three pages in the beginning of the book are detached. The printing of the pages, some are not straight, and some pages, the printing goes almost to the bottom of the page. There are 284 pages. The fore-edge is most likely from the 1830's. The edge is of a tavern scene with two men and a dog.!!!FREE SHIPPING!!! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Paris: Thomas Jolly, & Simon Benard, rue st. Jacques, 1670. 2 volumes. Contemporary (original) 17th century full calf leather binding with raised bands and elaborate gilt compartments on spine. Spines have chips at the top & bottom and there is moderate to heavy wear but still very presentable -- especially for the age. Decorative gold rolled edges to the cover has been mostly worn away. Volume 1: [xxii] + 420 + [78] notes and indexes. Volume 2: This book mispaginated. [1-8] + 9-72 + 83-445 + [45] notes and indexes. Both volumes have been collated and are complete Nicolas Perrot d' Ablancourt (April 5 1606 in the Châlon-on-Marne - November 17 1664 in Paris) was a French translator. A malicious remark on one of his translations spawned the saying "les belles infidèles (the beautiful inaccurate ones)." Some of Nicolas Perrot d'Ablancourt's works are still being repinted today. Great gift item for someone who reads French and loves Roman history. Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus (c. 56 – c. 117) is one of the important historians of Roman Antiquity. The surviving portions of his two major works—the Annals and the Histories—treat the reigns of the Roman Emperors Tiberius, Claudius, Nero and those that reigned in the Year of the Four Emperors. These two works span the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus in 14 to (presumably) the death of emperor Domitian in 96. There are significant lacunae in the surviving texts. Other surviving works by Tacitus treat Oratory (in dialogue format, see Dialogus de oratoribus), Germania (in De origine et sit … [Click Below for Full Description]
