Scarce. ~III~ Richard Baxter (1615 - 1691) was an English Puritan church leader, poet, hymn-writer, theologian, and controversialist. Dean Stanley called him 'the chief of English Protestant Schoolmen.' He made his reputation by his ministry at Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England, and at around the same time began a long and prolific career as theological writer. After the Restoration he refused preferment, while retaining a non-separatist Presbyterian approach, and became one of the most influential leaders of the nonconformists, spending time in prison. Prior to the publication of this volume, 'The Nonconformists Plea for Peace,' Baxter was responding to attacks on nonconformists in a multitude of books. In these, Baxter said, nonconformists were accused of being 'adversaries of peace, lovers of contentions, guilty of schism, sedition and all uncharitableness.' The 'Plea for Peace' was intended to meet all these objections and to lay the true grounds of nonconformity before the world. It is therefore both a defensive and offensive work. From his own account, he wrote the book as much to pursuade mistaken friends as attacking enemies. 'Two old friends, whom I had a hand in turning from anabaptistry and separation . . . fell on writing against separation, more than any of the conformable clergy. In consequence of their old error, they now ran into the other extreme, especially Mr. [Thomas] Lamb. They wrote against our gathering assemblies, and preaching when we were silenced; against whose mistakes I wrote The Nonconformists Plea for Peace.' Baxter wrote 168 or so separate works, including major treatises such as 'Christian Directory,' 'Methodus Theologiae Christianae,' and 'Catholic Theology.' . Very Good. 1679.

        Fifty Comedies And Tragedies

      London: Printed by J. Macock for John Martyn, Henry Herringman and Richard Marriot,, 1679. London: Printed by J. Macock for John Martyn, Henry Herringman and Richard Marriot,, 1679. All In One Volume. Published by the Authors Original Copies, The Songs to Each Play Being Added. Folio (355 × 228 mm) Early twentieth-century lightly sprinkled calf by Zaehnsdorf, green morocco title label and date strip to the tail of the spine, narrow bands with gilt sexfoil roll, compartments gilt with arabesqued floral corner-pieces enclosing a floral centre-tool, panels of a dogtooth roll enclosing triple-fillet gilt with cinquefoil corner-pieces, foliate edge-roll, all edges rough gilt, floral roll to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Fletcher by William Marshall. Spine neatly repaired head, tail and at the joints, hinges lined with linen, endpapers tan-burned from the turn-ins, and quite heavily browned verso, but the contents just lightly so, a very good copy. Second collected edition "with no fewer than Seventeen Plays more than were in the former Edition [of 1647]" (The Booksellers to the Reader). There are in fact eighteen extra plays, The Wild Goose Chase has not been recognised as such in the "Catalogue". The publishers make some great claims for this "Second Impression" in their address to the "Courteous Reader"; "we were very desirous [that it] might come forth as Correct as might be. And we were very opportunely informed of a Copy which an ingenious and worthy Gentleman had taken the pains (or rather the pleasure) to read over; wherein he had all along Corrected several faults (some very gross) which had crept in … From the same hand also we received several Prologues and Epilogues, with the Songs appertaining to each Play …And whereas in several of the Plays there were wanting the Names of the Persons represented therein, in this Edition you have them all prefixed, with their Qualities; which will be a great ease to the Reader". And if this edition should "gratifie and oblige the Reader", the publishers suggest that they "shall be encourag'd to bring Ben Johnson's [sic.] two volumes into one … and also reprint Old Shakespear". Herringman was responsible for the first collected Jonson in 1692, and was instrumental in the publication of the Fourth Folio of 1685. Money-Coutts family bookplates dated 1889 signed J.D.B., i.e. John Dickson Batten, to the front pastedown.

        Brief mit Sekretärsunterschrift ("Louis").

      Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 18. II. 1679.. 9 SS. auf 6 (= 3 Doppel-)Blatt. Folio. Mit Adresse.. An den französischen Botschafter im verbündeten Schweden, Isaac de Pas (1618-1688), Marquis de Feuquieres, und tls. in Geheimschrift verfaßt, über der der Empfänger interlinear die Transkription notierte. Ludwig erklärt, daß Frankreich keine Schiffe zur Unterstützung Schwedens schicken könne, gibt Befehle zur Aufstellung der französischen Landstreitkräfte und stimmt dem Vorschlag zu einer Hochzeit des schwedischen Königs mit der Tochter des Herzogs von Braunschweig-Lüneburg zu. Da Ludwigs Armee den alliierten Streitkräften überlegen war, ging Frankreich aus dem von Ludwig angezettelten Holländischen Krieg als Sieger hervor; im "Frieden von Nijmegen", unter dem mehrere separate Friedensverträge zwischen 1678 und 1679 zusammengefaßt werden, wurde festgehalten, daß Frankreich den Großteil seiner Eroberungen behalten konnte, den Norden der besetzten Spanischen Niederlande aber zurückgeben mußte. "[...] [A] squadron of 20 or 30 ships that I might send to Sweden's aid would be too weak to withstand the forces of England; nor is it suitable to the state of my affairs to [...] support this war by putting to sea a flotilla equal to that Crown's [...] Sweden's affairs are everywhere in such a bad state, yet she does not blame her own ill conduct. I have even learned that her ruin in Prussia is so great that it is no longer possible to negotiate for peace with them until [Sweden is] convinced of the nearly invincible obstacles to naval assistance that they have expected from me [...] [S]ince the greatest interest of the K[ing of Sweden] in marriage is that it contributes to make peace and to reestablish him in the Empire, I would view somewhat indifferently the choice that he would make [...]" (Übersetzung a. d. Frz.). - Mitunterzeichnet ist Ludwigs Brief von dem Diplomaten und damaligen Außenminister Simon Arnauld, Marquis de Pomponne (1618-1699); etwas fleckig und angestaubt und mit kleinen Randläsuren.

H's Tod erschienenen Jugendgedichte, die er selbst nicht in dieser Ausgabe wissen wollte und 2 anderen, später erschienenen Schriften, enthält der vorliegende Sammelband alle Werke dieses Haupts der sogenannten zweiten schlesischen Dichterschule.- Unser Exemplar stimmt inhaltlich mit dem bei Faber du Faur 1281 beschriebenen überein. Der "getreue Schäfer" ist eine Übersetzung des Dichters in jungen Jahren von Battista Guarinis Pastor fido; der "sterbende Sokrates" wurde aus dem Französischen des Theophile de Viau übersetzt. Das orginellste Werk sind die "Helden Briefe", eine Imitation von Ovids Heroiden u. Draytons Heroic Epistles, aber meist auf Gestalten der deutschen Geschichte gewendet.- Von den dieser Sammelausgabe beigebundenen Epicedien ist Lohensteins Grabrede besonders wichtig als Quelle von Nachrichten über das Leben Hofmann's.- Die hübschen Kupfer Küsell's zum "Getreuen Schäfer", die nur in der ersten Ausgabe abgedruckt wurden, gehören zu den besten deutschen Illustrationen des 17. Jahrhunderts.- Es fehlen das Frontispiz u. der gest. Titel im "Sterbenden Socrates" sowie das gest. Porträt u. Epigramm in der Leichenrede Lohensteins.- Titel gestempelt, leicht gebräunt u. kaum fleckig, Ebd. etw. berieben.# First edition of this collection of Hofmannswaldau's principal works. He "frequently reached the high point of inspiring lyricism, in which he was to be rivaled by no one for the next hundred years." Faber du Faur p.325).- Melchior Küssell's engravings for the "Getreue Schäfer" belong to the best produced during the century.-

Durch einen seiner Schüler namens Frescheur ließ er eine Dissertation 'De artificio navigandi per aerem' verfassen, die sich fast wörtlich mit dem 6. Kapitel von Lanas 'Prodromo' deckt und nur einige erweiternde Vorschläge hinzufügt.

Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschildchen. Spiegel mit Türkischmarmor bezogen, dreiseitig gesprenkelter Schnitt. Folio.. Seltene, erste Ausgabe des Hauptwerks des italienischen Volksmissionars, "tradotta quasi subito in francese, spagnolo, tedesco, inglese, greco e arabo, la piu nota e la piu importante del l'autore" (Libr. Vinciana). Das schöne Frontispiz zeigt den Apostel Paulus bei der Verkündung der Lehre auf dem Areopag in Athen, nach dem Titel folgt die vom April des Jahres datierende Autorenwidmung an Cosimo III. - "Segneri entwickelte "die Methode der zentralen Mission auf dem Land. Diese fand nicht in jeder Siedlung statt, sondern erfaßte von einem Standort aus mehrere Orte mit Prozessionen, Bußzeremonien und Predigten im Freien. Segneri ging barfüßig (angeblich 4.000 Meilen pro Jahr), trug Dornenkronen und geißelte sich (wie auch viele Teilnehmer). In die Residenz- und Hauptstädte zog Segneri sobald die skeptisch-ablehnende Oberschicht dem Begeisterungsdruck des ländlichen Umfeldes nachgab [...] Mit Erfolg schlichtete er blutige Fehden und Racheserien. Regierungen in der Toskana (Cosimo III.), in Modena und Genua förderten die Missionen von Segneri. Die Frauenfeindlichkeit der früheen Neuzeit ("donna-danno") gab er als einer der ersten auf [...]" (BBKL, IX, 1316). - Die italienische Originalausgabe vollständig wie vorliegend sehr selten; kein Nachweis auf Auktionen der letzten Jahrzehnte, selbst dem Exemplar der Libr.

"The Books of Assises, first published by John Rastell in 1516, are reports in a style very different from that of the other Year Books from the reign of Edward III. They are more concise than the Year Books usually are, giving rather the gist of the argument and the decision than a report of the actual proceedings. They consist chiefly of reports of assizes of novel disseisin and mort d'ancestor and various pleas of the crown heard before justices of assize in the county. They also contain a considerable number of cases in trespass and error heard in the King's Bench, and a few cases in Chancery originated by bill. Thus they were supplementary to the ordinary series of Year Books, which chiefly contained cases heard in the common bench.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:536-537.

Engraved plates throughout. Single page front engraving shows David, sling in hand, facing the Philistines. 1st edition with engraved plates. Scarce Latvian imprint. An important early Lutheran devotional book. Johann Arndt (1555-1621) was a noted German Lutheran theologian. He is seen as a forerunner of pietism. Wahres Christentum (True Christianity) is his most famous book. In Wahres, Arndt deals with the mystical union between the believer and Christ. He endeavors to draw attention to Christ's life in his people, rather than some reformation theologies over-attention to Christ's death for his people. (per wiki) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The bawds tryal and execution: also, a short account of her life and travels. Written by Misomastropus. With Allowance.

      London, Printed for L. C. 1679 - [2],6p. Folio. Edges uncut. A very fine copy. Preserved in a fine elaborate purpose-made half red morocco slip case lettered in gilt. Sole edition. Wing B1166 L, O; CLC, MH, WF, Y. ESTC adds none. A lurid cautionary tale set in the form of a dream narrative in which an "unfortunate soldier of Venus, disgusted at having been Sold the French Commodity at so vast a rate", falls asleep and dreams of the fate that awaits his erstwhile paramour. After a trial in which a full account is given of the lady's life and behaviour, she is sentenced to rot: "thereupon her nose began presently to creep off her Face upon the backs of Maggots, her legs walk'd from under her, her Eyes (those once foolish Lovers Planets) became falling Stars, and dropt from their Orbs, lay like filthy Jelly upon the ground". Misogynistic tirades like this against the loathsome physical manifestations of mutability and decay in the bodies of women once admired for their beauty formed a minor genre in this libertine age and continued to flourish until well into the eighteenth century.

        Ginaeceum chimicum seu congeries plurium authorum. Volumen primum (= all published).

      Lyons, Jean de Treves, 1679.. 8vo (171 x 112 mm). (4), 727, (1) pp. Contemp. vellum with ms. title to spine.. Scarce French edition of the alchemical works by "The Princes of Chemical Art", Geber the Arab and Avicenna, as well as of John Belye, John Dastin, Georg Horn, Francesco Maria Santinelli, Giovanni Bracesco, and others. Abu Musa Jabir ibn Hayyan (known as "Geber" in the Latin tradition) is the name of an author whose historical existence is under debate, but who, according to Arabic culture, is said to have lived in the second half of the eight century, been the head of a hermetic school, and left an extensive body of works on natural philosophy and alchemy. The rediscovery of Geber for the history of chemistry and alchemy was introduced by Hermann Kopp in the 19th century. Geber was an enthusiastic believer in the possibility of the transmutation of base metals into gold, by using a special elixir that could be connected to the theories about the famous Philosopher's Stone. Conversely, Avicenna, after al-Kindi, was one of the first philosophers to prefer scientific chemistry over the obscurer sides of alchemy. Following his practical laboratory experience, he discredited alchemical belief in the transmutation of substances, though acknowledging that they can produce the appearance of such a change. He described the process of steam distillation, used to obtain alcohol and essential oils, and invented the refrigerated coil, which condenses aromatic vapors. - Contemp. ms ownership of Jean Jacques Alferi to title page.

        A Treatise of Taxes and Contributions

      London: Obadiah Blagrave, at the Sign of the Bear in St Paul?s Corth-Door, 1679. Quarto, calf, red morocco label gilt, 20 x 15cm, pp.(16) + 72, an excellent, fresh copy with wide margins, leaf edges of lower margins entirely uncut.Keynes, no.10. Wing P1940. Kress 1499. Goldsmith 2302. See David McNally:Political Economy & the Rise of Capitalism, 1990 p.35.Third edition of William Petty?s first economic treatise. A reprint of the second edition of 1667 with minor alterations to the title page. It was first printed in 1662. This third edition was published against Petty?s wishes. All editions of this book are now rare.The seminal eco­nomic work of William Petty, in which he con­siders the best tax policies for pro­moting growth. He pro­poses use of the tax and spend method, with emphasis on taxing con­sumption and imports rather than income. In his view tax policy should be used to finance public spending by the State while keeping the accounts balanced. ?Petty is widely acknowledged to be a founder of classical political economy. Marx dubbed him "the father of English political economy" and praised his "audacious genius." Max Beer described Petty as "the pioneer of the English economics of production" and claimed that "he must be regarded as the initiator of classical English economics: he laid the foundations on which his successors?Smith and Ricardo?could erect their structures." In the view of Eric Roll, Petty is "the most important, as well as the earliest, English economist who prepared the way for the classical system," while writers such as Schumpeter, Spiegel, and Meek have praised him as the originator of the concept of economic interdependence through the division of labour and of modern income analysis. In The Origins of Scientific Economics, William Letwin has written of Petty's major economic work, A Treatise of Taxes and Contributions, that "its basic structure must stand as a work of surpassing originality. The quality of its analysis makes it an unmistakable masterpiece of early economic science."? David McNally

Their subsequent amours are the stuff of legend. Maria was the first romantic love of Louis XIV, while Hortense, after many vicissitudes, became the mistress of Charles II. She, Hortense, however fell from favour with Charles, as she continued with extra adventures, including, possibly, one with Aphra Behn. Curiously enough, in the advertisements included in the first work here, after a full-page one for a vehemently anti-catholic work, are ‘Plays by Madame Behne’, as well as the second work here. The Lincence leaf to the first work has a 19th-century inscription: ‘very rare - containing many singular anecdotes of the private life of the lady in question.’For a full account, see The Kings' Mistresses by Elizabeth C. Goldsmith, recently published. (ESTC R15149 and R19039)

P. William Penn (1644-1726) famous English Quaker is one of the founding fathers of the United States and the only one among them to have single-handedly created a democratic constitution and ruled a huge territory, Pennsylvania, a century before 1776. This work is one of Penn's longer pamphlets which deals with the argument for religious liberty. It is a powerful exposition of the doctrine of pure tolerance and a protest against the enforcement of opinions as articles of faith. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.
