        Political Discourses... Patriarcha. BOUND WITH: Free-Holders

      1680. FILMER, Robert.Political Discourses of Sir Robert Filmer, Baronet. CONSISTING OF: Patriarcha: or the Natural Power of Kings. AND: The Free-holders Grand Inquest.London, 1679-80.First edition of Filmer?'s 1680 Patriarcha, his most famous work, together with other Filmer works under a new general title page, Political Discourses. Filmer?'s posthumously-published Patriarcha supported the divine right of kings to absolute power, and two landmark works were written to refute it: John Locke?'s 1690 Two Treatises on Government and Algernon Sidney?'s 1698 Discourses Concerning Government.Sir Robert Filmer was the chief 17th-century proponent of the view that patriarchal authority was derived from God and rulers similarly had "fatherly power over their subjects… kings are accountable to God alone" (Somerville, Patriarcha, 1991:ix). Patriarcha, Filmer's most "celebrated work" (Lowndes, 797), draws extensively on biblical and classical sources and is "the fullest presentation of his political ideas… He explored the implications of patriarchal political theory in greater detail than any previous writer" (Somerville, ix-xv). First authored circa 1630, Patriacha "circulated thereafter in manuscript for nearly 50 years and exercised an immense influence on English royalist thinking" (Paul Rahe). Patriarcha was first published in 1680, nearly 40 years after Filmer's death, and it inspired two landmark works, which were written to refute it: John Locke's 1690 Two Treatises of Government, heralded as "the basis of the principles of democracy" (PMM 163), and Algernon Sidney's Discourses Concerning Government, published posthumously in 1698. "It is difficult to understand Locke unless we understand Filmer, for Locke's Two Treatises were not written as the abstract reflections of a detached philosopher, but were a polemical refutation of Filmer's case… It is hard to grasp the nuances of Locke's reply unless we know something of what Filmer asserted… He is arguably at his most interesting, and challenging, when he attacks democratic theory, and… much of what Filmer had to say against contractualist theories of government remains compelling" (Sommerville, 1991:xxiv).Wing F922, F914, F925. Allibone, 596.Text fresh with only light scattered foxing, very faint occasional dampstaining rarely affecting text. An extremely good copy of a major work in constitutional theory, handsomely bound.

First published in America in 1721, it had a profound influence on several colonial readers, including the founding fathers.

        L'Adone, poema del Cavalier Marino: con gli argomenti del Conte Fortuniano Sanvitale, e l'allegorie di Don Lorenzo Scoto

      Amsterdam: No publisher/printer 12mo (16.5 cm, 6.5"). 2 vols. I: [18] ff., 660 pp. (i.e., 662). II: 658; 34 pp.. 1680 Giambattista Marino (Giovan Battista Marino, 1569?-1625) was => Italy's greatest Baroque poet. His extravagant style became known as Marinism, or Seicentismo, inspiring a century of lyricists known as Marinisti. However the poet's reputation suffered in the 18th and 19th centuries when critics dismissed many fruits of the Baroque period as "all form no substance" (Guardiani, 74). It was not until the mid?-20th century that Baroque literature was reevaluated and Marino's work was newly admired by scholars. First published at Paris in 1623 and => placed on the Index in 1627, L'Adone is a complicated narrative based on the myth of Venus and Adonis from Ovid's Metamorphoses, combined with other myths and passages imitating Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, and French writers. These elements are intertwined with novelties, including a lyrical autobiography modeled on Ovid's (canto IX, 59?-91), and a eulogy for Marino's contemporary => Galileo and his telescope (canto X, 42?-47). Composed of over 5,000 octaves in 20 canti — almost 41,000 verses, Marino's complicated, ornate poem is => one of the longest epics ever written in Italian. The edition in hand is printed in roman and italic, with factotum initials and a handful of woodcut tailpieces. The title-page in the first volume is printed in red and black, and black only in the second, with both volumes featuring the printer's device of an armillary sphere: mark of the Elzevirs, who printed the 1678 edition in Amsterdam? Quarter calf over paper-covered boards, recently rebacked with original spine leather laid down; spine tooled creating compartments accented with gilt center ornaments, author and title gilt on black morocco spine in second one. Scuffed, chipped, and soiled but sturdy; foxed throughout though never more than moderately; edges uncut.

        The humble address of the House of Commons, presented to His Majesty, upon Tuesday the 21th. day of December, 1680. In answer to His Majesties gracious speech to both houses of Parliament, upon the 15th. day of the same December

      London: John Wright & Richard Chiswell Folio (27.1 cm, 10.75"). [4], 133–43, [1] pp.. 1680 [with] England & Wales. Sovereign (1660–1685: Charles II). His Majesties declaration to all his loving subjects, touching the causes & reasons that moved him to dissolve the two last parliaments. London: Pr. by the assigns of John Bill, Thomas Newcomb, & Henry Hills, 1681. Folio. 10, [2] pp. First editions of two significant documents, one from Parliament and one from Charles II, regarding the furor over the Exclusion Bill. In the first work, the tone is indeed almost aggressively humble, as per the title, but the position is utterly unyielding: The Catholic Duke of York will not be accepted in the line of succession, as Charles II's life will (allegedly) be in constant, deadly danger as long as there is any possibility of "a Popish Successor" (p. 135). In response to the "Humble Address," Charles dismissed the Parliament and called another, which also refused to do his bidding, after which he issued the second piece here — an attempt at justification which invokes the Fitzharris treason case. Provenance: These two copies were joined together by a contemporary reader who marked the recto of the printing permission of the first piece with "The Address" and the verso of the permission of the second piece (that is, that piece's final page) with "The King's Declaration. This read in ye Parochial Church of Thrandeston May ye first Anno Domini 1681. [?] Tho. Mael." Mael served as rector of Thrandeston from 1670 until his death in 1709. Disbound from a nonce volume. Pages slightly age-toned with scattered light spots; inscriptions as above. => A nice pairing, from the library of a clergyman who presumably had a strong interest in the outcome of the struggle.

        The Conversion & Persecutions of Eve Cohan, Now called Elizabeth Verboon, A person of Quality of the Jewish Religion, who was Baptized the 10th of October, 1680, at St. Martins in the Fields, by the Right Reverend Father in God, William, Lord Bishop of St. Asaph

      London 1680 - Printed by J.D. for Richard Chiswell, at the Rose and Crown in St. Paul's Church Yard, 1680. [3]f., 27 pages. Roth MAGNA, page 282, #39: pages iv, 27. 4to. London, 1680*.

The celebrated English divine Gilbert Burnet (1643 - 1715) wrote this account of a Jewish heiress from Holland who braved her mother¿s pleas and her former co-religionists¿ persecution to convert to Christianity.

        Naukeurige Beschryving van Asie:

      Amsterdam: Jacob van Meurs,, 1680. behelsende de Gewesten van Mesopotamie, Babylonie, Assyrie, Anatolie, of Klein Asie: beneffens eene volkome Beschrijving van gansch Gellukigh, Woest, en Petreesch of Steenigh Arabie. 2 parts bound in 1, folio (317 x 194 mm). Contemporary vellum, title inked on spine, three-line blind tooled border on sides enclosing a large arabesque blind stamp, red speckled edges. Letterpress title printed in red and black; engraved pictorial title, 12 double-page engraved view (2 also folding), 3 double-page maps, 22 half-page plates. Bookplate of Heyse-Tak; front board has "sprung", 19th century repair to fore-edge of engraved title. First edition of Dapper's Asia Minor and Mesopotamia; a German edition followed in 1681. The Atabey Library copy has 16 plates but one of these is an additional botanical plate not called-for in the collation. In common with many of his contemporaries such as John Ogilby, the Dutch physician Olfert Dapper (1639?-1689) never travelled to visit the lands he wrote about, instead compiling extant translations and others' eye-witness accounts to produce lavish and encyclopaedic books for the northern European readership. His and others' work thus both reflected and directed growing public interest in distant places and foreign peoples. Dapper was meticulous in using hundreds of published sources and several unpublished ones for each of his books; he did not lift whole passages from one book, but often based a single paragraph on two or three different sources. In this sense his work is indispensible to modern scholarship, as it reflects manuscript sources that have since been lost. Central to the contemporary appeal of Dapper's works were the engravings, which ranged beyond the geographical interest served by maps and views. Clothing, eating habits, religious beliefs, court ceremonies, and judicial practices were all subjects discussed by travellers and missionaries in letters and travel books and were reproduced by Dapper. The plates (which are excellent strong impressions) include superb views of Baghdad, Abydos, Ephesus, Smyrna, Magnesia, Muscat, and Mecca. Among the half-plates are attractive botanical subjects, including the coffee tree (p. 62 in the second part). An attractive copy in a contemporary binding.

(This with its own titlepage: A Cymical Paradox, Grounded upon new Experiments, making it probable, that Chymical Principles are Transmutable: So that, out of One of Them, others may be Produc'd).

      London, Tho. Snowden, 1680. - London, Printed by R.E. for B. Tooke, 1681/2. Bound together in one contemp. full calf. Raised bands. Spine somewhat worn. Lacking some leather on backcover along hinge. Binding tight and not loose. (6),(1 leaf errata),109,2 lvs. blank,(14),104,(8),113-150,(1 leaf errata). Internally a fine clean and broadmargined copy, printed on good paper.. The very scarce first editions of both these milestone works in the history of chemistry. Boyle was one of the first to investigate the preparation of phosphorus ("the stuff that gives fireflies their glove"), and he gives a detailled description of its production. The phosphorus was collected underwater to prevent it from catching fire. He thus demostrated that something is present in air (i.e. oxygen) and he also described the Bolognian Stone. In the second work he describes further experiments with luminescent and chemical properties of phosphorus. The work "A Cynical Paradox" is importent as it confirms that Boyle believed that transmutation of one substance (not element) into another could occur."Boyle was unique in realizing the continual need for meticulous care in examining purity, testing composition, and searching for chemical differences and similarities. How methodical he could be is amply demonstrated in his two investigations into the nature of phosphorus, The Aerial Noctiluca (1680) and New Experiments and Observations Made Upon the Icy Noctiluca (1682), in the course of which he discovered the chief chemical and physical properties of phosphorus and phosphoric acid, and in Short Memoirs for the Natural Experimental History of Mineral Waters (1685), an admirable set of analytical directions. Few other chemists of his day seem to have been sufficiently patient to elaborate an analytical procedure, although it became commonplace in the next century."(DSB).Fulton Nos 138 a. 139 (having 'Finis' at end of p. 104). - Neville pp. 190-91. - Duveen p. 96 (only the first work). - Partington II: pp. 542 ff

Antiporta allegorica inc. in rame, 10 illustrazioni inc. in rame e numerose inc. in legno n.t. (8, incl. l'antiporta), 248, (8) pp.; lieve uniforme arrossatura della carta. Prima edizione di questa raccolta di studi, esperimenti ed osservazioni compiuti dal noto erudito in vari campi delle scienze naturali. "This work, edited by one of Kircher's pupils, Johann Stephan Kestler, is a codification of Kircher's observations and experiments across the entire spectrum of his researches in physics. Naturally there are large sections in light and shadow, magnetism, acoustics, and music; but there are also experiments and observations in hydrolics, alchemy, and a myriad of other topics. This compendium was perhaps a response to entreaties from Kircher's fellow scientists, who appreciated his keen observations and experiments but did not care to wade through some 40 volumes to glean them. The book is an example of what Kircher's writings could have been like at the hands of a good editor. Kircher died the year the book was published, and it is uncertain to what extent he was involved in its publication. The Physiologia is not only a measure of Kircher's scientific curiosity and the vast range of his scientific researches, but also a barometer of his age, a catalogue of scientific concern of his time" (Merrill, Kircher, 29).

        Oraisons Funebres Composées Par Monsieur Flechier, Abbe De Saint Severin De L Academie Francoise

      Paris: , 1680. Seconde Edition. Good in a 17th century binding of full leather covered boards with five raised bands on the spine with only fragments of the backstrip remaining, but enough to show gilt tool work and gilt text in the compartments. In subsequent years to preserve the binding the spine area was heavily varnished. In the area where the backstrip has been lost the underlying sewing supports (cords) are visible. The front and rear joints seem to be cracked but the varnish continues to hold the book together with the aid of the still strong front and rear hinges. A 16mo measuring 6 1/4" by 3 1/2" with two recent prior owner's names on the first free end page. 326 pages of text.
