Barlow, Thomas [Lord Bishop of Lincoln] (1607-1691)
London: Printed by S Roycroft for Robert Clavel at the Peacock, 1681. [a2-a6]+[b-b7]+[c-c7]+[d-231]+[5] pages. Small square octavo (7 ¾" x 6 ¼") bound in full leather. Second edition. Thomas Barlow (1607-1691) was an English academic and clergyman, who became Provost of The Queen's College, Oxford and Bishop of Lincoln. He was considered, in his own times and by Edmund Venables writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, to have been a trimmer, a reputation mixed in with his academic and other writings on casuistry. His views were in fact Calvinist and strongly anti-Catholic, and he was one of the last English bishops to identify the Pope as the Antichrist He worked in the 1660s for the 'comprehension' of nonconformists, but supported the crackdown of the mid-1680s; and declared loyalty to James II of England on his accession, having strongly supported the Exclusion Bill which would have denied the Catholic James the succession. Pope Pius V's response to Queen Elizabeth I of England assuming governance of the Church of England included support of the imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots, and her supporters in their attempts to take over England "ex turpissima muliebris libidinis servitute". A brief English Catholic uprising, the Rising of the North, had just failed. Pius then issued a bull, Regnans in Excelsis, dated April 27, 1570, that declared Elizabeth I a heretic and released her subjects from their allegiance to her. In response, Elizabeth, who had thus far tolerated Catholic worship in private, now actively started persecuting them. Condition: Original bards with n … [Click Below for Full Description]

Penn, William:
London: Benjamin Clark, 1681.. [2],10pp. Folio. Blue crushed morocco by Riviere & Son, title in gilt on spine and front board, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Scratch on front cover, two bookplates on front pastedown. Expert restoration to the title- leaf with a few letters supplied; minor soiling. A few text leaves skillfully repaired. Very good. The primary tract in the foundation of Pennsylvania, and a bedrock piece of Americana. On March 4, 1681, to resolve the Crown's debt to the Penn family, Charles II granted the vast area west and south of New Jersey to William Penn, and Penn immediately began laying the foundations for his new colony. This included contact with numerous leading Quakers in England and Wales, the appointment of several agents, and, most importantly, the publication of this promotional tract "to describe the new colony and the opportunities that were available to persons wishing to settle there or invest in the venture...[It] is the basic pamphlet" - Bronner & Fraser. The successful settlement of Penn's new charter was due principally to William Penn's marketing of the region, beginning with this work. "Penn's advertising campaign for his new colony in the early 1680s was the most successful English colonial recruitment drive since the Puritans had founded Massachusetts fifty years before...and provided the necessary momentum that got the Quaker colony off to a successful start" - Dunn. The work is quite rare on the market. This copy is Bronner & Fraser's second state of the first edition, with the "Fifty Acres shall be allowed" readi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Including the engraved portrait on *4 verso, and the final leaf of instructions to the binder. Title printed in red and black. Eighteenth century half mottled sheep, red morocco label on spine, corners worn. Some very minor foxing, but a good copy. Initials B.D.L. in gilt on spine. FIRST EDITION of the Opera Omnia, which is in effect a second edition of his classic Tractatus Quinque (1674), as it contains only that work, consisting of the following five tracts: De Sal-nitro, De Respiratione, De Respiratione Foetus in Utero et Ovo, De Motu Musculari, and De Rachitide. See G&M 578 (physiology) and 2726.2 (cardiology, confusingly giving the date of the first edition with a note referring to the second): ?In the second edition of the Tractatus quinque Mayow recorded a case of mitral stenosis, probably the first description.? See also East, The story of heart disease, pp. 128?129 (giving the impression that the description is in the first edition). Duveen p. 397. Neville p. 158. Fulton, Two Oxford Physiologists, 109.

1681. [DRYDEN, John]. ABSALOM AND ACHITOPHEL. A Poem. London: Printed for J. T. and are to be sold by W. Davis in Amen-Corner, 1681. First edition. Folio: [-]2(the first blank and genuine); Sig. B is inserted between them. Contents: blank leaf; title-page, verso blank; To the Reader, in italic, Sig. numbered centrally in square brackets. A disbound copy, side sewn, with traces of backing at spine. 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches. The leaves are mostly clean, but with a few spots of soiling throughout. Slight horizontal crease at the center from folding. Housed in a fleece lined, blue cloth, clamshell box; title gilt-stamped at spine and upper board. This copy appears to belong to what Mcdonald calls the first edition, first issue because Sig. C contains all of the misprints in an uncorrected state. On page 5, line 10 'And serv'd' for 'As serv'd,' and on page 6, 'cuold,' 'Kold,' 'Kody' and 'Patron's' in lines 4, 8, 12, and 34, respectively, for 'could,' 'Bold,' 'Body' and 'Patriott's;' the catchword is 'Not' instead of'Oh.' Mcdonald notes that in most copies the four misprints in the text on p. 6 have been corrected in ink; only the final misprint in this copy has an ink correction. Also, the address leaf is unsigned. Mcdonald indicates that the signature 'A' was added in what he identifies as the third issue. This is the first of Dryden's great satires. It is an allegory based on 2 Sam. 13-9 and deals with certain aspects of the Exclusion crisis, notably the int … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAMSAY (Charles-Aloysius)
65, (1 bl.), 82 pp. Paris, chez l'auteur, 1681, in-12, 65, (1 bl.), 82 pp. (nombreuses erreurs de pagination), maroquin lie de vin avec un encadrement doré à la Du Seuil sur les plats, dos à 4 nerfs orné, tranche de tête cirée, gardes renouvelés, Première édition française de ce rare traité de sténographie, le second paru en France, après celui du prêtre Jacques Cossard, publié à Paris en 1651. La "Tacheographie" qui signifie "écrire rapidement" et que l'on connait aujourd'hui sous le nom de sténographie (écrire serré) connut un important développement en Angleterre au cours du XVIIe siècle. Charles-Aloysius Ramsay, un écossais expatrié à la cour de France (l'ouvrage est dédié à Louis XIV et vendu chez l'auteur à Paris), propose une synthèse et une simplification des méthodes anglo-saxonnes et des grands traités de sténographie anglais : Bright, Shelton et Willis, par exemple. En effet, avec ce traité, l'auteur réussit un tour de force de concision puisqu'en 40 pages et deux planches dépliantes, il enseigne "l'alphabet tacheographique", ses particularités et ses difficultés d'emploi. 2 planches repliées hors-texte présentent, en 6 tableaux, plus de 200 exemples de lettres simples, doubles ou triples, ainsi que des exemples de différents sons complexes ou de mots entiers. Sur la première garde, l'ex-libris imprimé et daté de 1956 de la bibliothèque Ferreira Lima, localisée à Rio de Janeiro. Ouvrage assez grand de marges pour un format in-12 et à l'intérieur propre.

Florence: Santi Franci, 1681. First edition of Baldinucci's biographical history of Italian art and architecture from 1260 to 1300. The author's son, Francesco Saverio Baldinucci, edited the remaining five volumes published in the years 1686-1728 and covering the period 1300 to 1670. This is a very handsome copy from the library of Nicolas Joseph Foucault (1643-1721), statesman and archeologist, with his arms in gilt on the covers and his armorial bookplate. Baldinucci's work was based on published sources as well as original research with unpublished manuscripts and documents and is considered by Cicognara to be a worthy successor to Vasari. Fine and crisp copy. ❧ Brunet, I, 622-"Cet ouvrage est difficile à trouver complet." .
