Glanvill, Joseph
London: Printed by R.W. for H. Mortlock..., 1676. London: Printed by R.W. for H. Mortlock... 1676 First edition. Contemporary calf. Gilt-decorated spine with morocco label. . Small octavo. . Both joints starting to crack, a couple of small stains on back cover. Early ink ownership signature (G. Courthop... 1720/1") on front free endpaper; the same owner's signature on the title-page and a terminal blank. A very good copy. Glanvill (1636-1678) established himself as a skeptic with the publication of his first book, The Vanity of Dogmatizing (1661). This and numerous later publications investigated philosophical and religious views from a skeptical point of view. Glanvill is generally referred to as a disciple of Henry More, the Cambridge Platonist, and as a precursor of David Hume, whose theory of causation is said to owe something to Glanvill. (See "Joseph Glanvill: Precursor of Hume," an article by Richard Popkin in Journal of the History of Ideas, 1953, pp. 292-303. See also the Popkin biography of Glanvill in Dictionary of Seventeenth-Century British Philosophers). Despite his importance, Glanvill still seems to have been studied very little by historians of philosophy in the past fifty or sixty years. The present work is presented in the form of four sermons: I. "The Sin and Danger of Scoffing at Religion;" II. "The Church's Contempt from Prophane and Fanatick Enemies;" III. "Moral Evidence of a Life to come;" and IV. "The serious Consideration of the Future of Judgement." Glanvill's works are generally well represented in libraries and other repositories.

COLLINS, Captain Greenville.
[v.p., May-August 1676] Manuscript folio (14 x 9 inches) 2 full-page maps handcolored in outline, one in-text map of the Shetland Islands, one double-page map in ink and wash of "Mount Missery," 3 ink and wash text illustrations, including one of a walrus and her calf, 18 pages of text within rules. Eighteenth-century marbled wrappers, strips of marbled paper pieced along lower margin and fore-edge of lower wrapper (edges somewhat worn and frayed), in half red morocco case. Provenance: Bookplate of the Duke of Hamilton. AN EARLY FIRSTHAND ACCOUNT OF THE QUEST FOR THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE. In 1493 to defuse trade disputes Pope Alexander VI split the discovered world in two between Spain and Portugal, leaving France, the Netherlands and England without a sea route to the trading nations of Asia. The desire to establish such a route motivated much of the European exploration of both coasts of North America. When it became apparent that there was no route through the heart of the continent, attention turned to the possibility of a passage through northern waters. It was not until 1906 that passage from Greenland to Alaska was successfully navigated. At the command of King Charles II, the expedition set out from Deptford 6 May 1676. It consisted of two ships, the Speedwell, commanded by Captain John Wood with Greenville Collins as its master, and the Prosperous, commanded by Captain William Flawes. As shown by Collins's map, they sailed north toward Greenland, and then east along the ice north of Russia, through the Barents Sea. On 29 June, the Speedwell ran aground and was wrec … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hubbard, William:
Boston: Printed by John Foster, 1676.. [8],63pp. Small quarto. 19th-century speckled calf, ruled in gilt, spine gilt, gilt morocco label, gilt inner dentelles. Two small closed tears in foredge of titlepage, with no loss. Scattered foxing. Very good. A rare and early American election day sermon, published in the second year of printing in Boston. In this sermon, delivered on May 3, 1676 and dedicated to John Leveret, governor of the colony of Massachusetts, William Hubbard, the minister of Ipswich, urges those eligible to vote to exercise their rights and cast ballots for their rulers. Hubbard supports his exhortation with biblical and historical precedents. He says that "you are now called to the exercise of your civil liberty (wherein much of your other libertys are bound up)," and urges "the regular, conscientious proceeding in this business of Election," by which the people "have the liberty to choose their own rulers." With much of New England being engaged in wars with the local Pequot Indians, Hubbard spends quite a bit of time offering council on the proper way to prepare for and undertake conflict: "war ought not to be made without good advice." The literary critic Sacvan Bercovitch calls it a "brilliant election-day oration," emphasizing Hubbard's belief that the Puritan faith will turn "the rough and barren wilderness" of New England into a "fragrant Sharon." The sermon was delivered before the governor, council, and deputies of the Massachusetts colony. Hubbard is best remembered for his history of King Philip's War, published in 1677. EVANS 214.

Speed, John:
London, Basset and Chiswell, 1676. Copper engraving, 39 x 52 cms, recent hand-colour, small area of restoration to either side of centrefold, inset plan of Nottingham. English text on verso. John Speed (1552-1629) is unquestionably the most significant English map-maker of the seventeenth-century. A brief note, from Granger's Bibliographical History of England (1779) contains most of the information we have about Speed's life: "John Speed, who was bred a Tailor, was by the generosity of Sir Fulk Grevil, his patron, set free from a manual employment and enabled to pursue his studies, to which he was strongly inclined by the bent of his genius. The fruits of them were his Theatre of Great Britain, containing an entire set of maps of the counties drawn by himself, his History of Great Britain, richly adorned with seals, coins & medals, from the Cotton collection; and his Genealogies of Scripture, first bound up with the Bible, in 1611 which was the first edition of the present English translation. His maps were very justly esteemed & his History of Great Britain, was, in its kind incomparably more complete, than all the histories of his predecessors put together ..." The first edition of Speed's "Theatre" was published in 1612. It was the first atlas of the British Isles, and the first attempt made by an Englishman to match the achievements of the great continental publishing houses - although much of the engraving of the copper plates was performed in Amsterdam by Jodocus Hondius. Speed was an antiquary, and intended that his atlas should be read in conjunction with his hist … [Click Below for Full Description]
