The Medal of John Bayes A Satyr Against Folly and Knavery Thomas Shadwell 1682 Richard Janeway : London 8" by 6" [10], 1-23pp SUMMARY The first edition of this satirical piece aimed at John Dryden by Thomas Shadwell. This treatise is a rebuttal to Dryden's own work 'The Medall'. First Edition,Very Scarce Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed This book weighs 0.5 KG when packed UK Postage: £ FREE POSTAGE US Postage: £ 15.99 EU Postage: £ 13.99 European Postage: £ 14.99 Asia Postage: £ 18.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 19.99 DESCRIPTION A very scarce work. ESTC no R10443. With the signatures [1], A-D4. Thomas Shadwell was the poet laureate in 1689. Shadwell had close association with Dryden throughout his career. The two worked together on 'True Widow' for which Dryden produced a prologue. However, a once cordial relationship turned sour when Dryden joined the court party and published 'Absalom and Achitophel' and 'The Medal'. Shadwell made this attack in the form of 'The Medal of John Bayes' which brought Dryden's retort of representing Shadwell as Mac Flecknoe. In addition to this Dryden contributed to Nahum Tate's continuation of Absalom and Achitophel with Shadwell as Og. This work is in response to Dryden's poem 'The Medall' which was published following to the Whigs voting a medal to Shaftsbury after he was not indicted for treason. Dryden was in support of the King and 'The Medall' is highly critical of the Whigs. This very scarce treatise marks the start of a vitriolic public dispute between Shadwell and Dryden. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wilmer, John
London: Printed for Edw. Powell, 1682. [2],17pp. Folio. Modern tan paper spine and blue paper boards, manuscript title on spine. Moderate wear to boards, corners bumped, spine ends chipped. Minor foxing and tanning throughout. A few pages with small chips (no text affected). Very good overall. John Wilmer was a London merchant engaged in the West India trade, and the owner of a plantation in Jamaica. According to his testimony, he shipped a boy named Richard Civiter out to Jamaica at the request of the young man, who asserted he had no parents or family. Two years later the parents appeared and demanded damages, hauling Wilmer into a lawsuit that he claims was just a scheme to profit from his good will. The text contains much incidental information about the West India sugar trade and the state of labor in the colonies and in England, and provides a fascinating slice of Restoration life. Wilmer argues that indenturing English boys into trade in the American plantations offers a real opportunity for them to become planters in their own right. He argues that his willingness to take on a white apprentice was evidence of his good intentions, noting that African labor is much more cost effective than white labor. Wilmer asserts that African laborers cost less, work more and are more productive than Englishmen, and that the only reason that whites are ever employed in Jamaica is the government regulation demanding the employment of one white for every ten black servants, for the security of the island. Wilmer's self-defense gives a one-sided picture, of course, and it is ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

This treatise is a rebuttal to Dryden's own work 'The Medall'. A very scarce work. ESTC no R10443. With the signatures [1], A-D4. Thomas Shadwell was the poet laureate in 1689. Shadwell had close association with Dryden throughout his career. The two worked together on 'True Widow' for which Dryden produced a prologue. However, a once cordial relationship turned sour when Dryden joined the court party and published 'Absalom and Achitophel' and 'The Medal'. Shadwell made this attack in the form of 'The Medal of John Bayes' which brought Dryden's retort of representing Shadwell as Mac Flecknoe. In addition to this Dryden contributed to Nahum Tate's continuation of Absalom and Achitophel with Shadwell as Og. This work is in response to Dryden's poem 'The Medall' which was published following to the Whigs voting a medal to Shaftsbury after he was not indicted for treason. Dryden was in support of the King and 'The Medall' is highly critical of the Whigs. This very scarce treatise marks the start of a vitriolic public dispute between Shadwell and Dryden. Condition: Disbound. Externally, smart with a few handling marks and spots to the wraps. Internally, firmly bound. A1 and A2 are closely trimmed with a smaller leaf size to the rest of the text.

Wilmer, John
Printed for Edw. Powell, London, 1682. [2],17pp. Folio. Modern tan paper spine and blue paper boards, manuscript title on spine. Moderate wear to boards, corners bumped, spine ends chipped. Minor foxing and tanning throughout. A few pages with small chips (no text affected). Very good overall. John Wilmer was a London merchant engaged in the West India trade, and the owner of a plantation in Jamaica. According to his testimony, he shipped a boy named Richard Civiter out to Jamaica at the request of the young man, who asserted he had no parents or family. Two years later the parents appeared and demanded damages, hauling Wilmer into a lawsuit that he claims was just a scheme to profit from his good will. The text contains much incidental information about the West India sugar trade and the state of labor in the colonies and in England, and provides a fascinating slice of Restoration life. Wilmer argues that indenturing English boys into trade in the American plantations offers a real opportunity for them to become planters in their own right. He argues that his willingness to take on a white apprentice was evidence of his good intentions, noting that African labor is much more cost effective than white labor. Wilmer asserts that African laborers cost less, work more and are more productive than Englishmen, and that the only reason that whites are ever employed in Jamaica is the government regulation demanding the employment of one white for every ten black servants, for the security of the island. Wilmer's self-defense gives a one-sided picture, of course, and it is hard to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition originale, assez rare. Une vignette de titre et une figure in texte.Reliure en plein maroquin à grains long chocolat ca 1860. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Plats décorés de plusieurs filets et roulettes d'encadrement et d'une large frise florale. Frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Papier d'une fraîcheur parfaite, possiblement lavé. Très bel exemplaire en reliure de maître non signée.La seule espèce désigne la communion par le pain ou le vin. C'est en 1681 que Pierre Jurieu publia son traité sur la communion en une seule espèce au nom du protestantisme. Un an plus tard, Bossuet écrivait un traité rigoureux en prouvant pas des causes certaines que l'église pratiquait l'Eucharistie sous une ou deux espèces sans qu'on ait jamais songé que la soustraction de l'une ou de l'autre nuisit à l'intégrité du sacrement. l'auteur montre qu'il n'y a d'indispensable dans les sacrements que ce qui tient à leur substance ; qu'ainsi l'on n'est pas obligé de faire en les administrant tout ce qu'a fait le Sauveur en les instituant. Le Traité de la Communion, dit Bayle, « m'a paru fort délicat, fort spirituel, et d'une honnêteté envers nous qui ne peut être assez louée ; serré, judicieux, il est déchargé de tout ce qui ne fait pas à la question. » Il n'en résulte pas moins que Bossuet fut ensuite attaqué par plus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary spotted calf, rebacked, six raised bands and red morocco label to spine. Moderate wear to extremities of boards, spine rubbed; additional new end-papers; two ownership inscriptions, one dated 1736. London : for Philip Chetwind, Benjamin Tooke and Thomas Sawbridge, Heylyn?s Cosmographie was first published by Henry Seile in 1652. Heylyn (1600-1662) was a lecturer in historical geography, and churchman, appointed personal chaplain to King Charles I. The Cosmographie was the most substantial English geography of its day, an enlargement of the author?s Microcosmus, now expanded to near a thousand pages, with a suite of four maps of the continents, dated 1652. The book was a success, and much reprinted. This seventh edition appeared under the joint imprint of several leading English booksellers and publishers. The maps are now reprinted from replacement printing plates. The maps of Europe, Asia and Africa bear the imprint of Philip Chetwind, dated 1666, while the America is credited to Seile?s widow, Ann(e) (or Anna) Seile, and dated 1663. The map of America derives from John Speed?s map from 1627; it is one of the earliest English maps of the Americas, naming many English settlements along the east coast, and also depicts California as an island.

(...) Bossuet sut tirer profit de sa grande érudition et de ses connaissances juridiques et politiques ; en reconnaissance il le fit élire à l'Académie française en 1696. Mais l'influence de l'abbé Fleury fut plus grande encore sur Fénelon ; elle est en particulier sensible dans les vues politiques et économiques du Télémaque" (Encyclopedia Universalis).Ouvrage un peu manipulé, quelques taches, mais bon exemplaire toujours plaisant dans sa reliure de l'époque en maroquin rouge à la Du Seuil.

Monteage, Stephen
London: Printed by John Richardson for Ben. Billingsley, 1682. Second edition of this rare accounting book; one of the earliest in published in English for a general audience. Octavo, bound in full contemporary calf, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, woodcut frontispiece portrait of the author within a rich botanical border. In very good condition. Scarce. "Most of the writings on accounting then available were written for wealthy merchants, who kept a variety of journals, cash books, petty-charge lists, and invoice registers. Ordinary people were not familiar with such procedures, and if they kept accounts at all they probably used a charge-discharge system. Monteage's treatise addressed middle-class merchants. They were advised to keep detailed accounts in a simplified system, based only upon two records, a 'waste' book, or record of first entry, and a general ledger, where these entries were reconciled in a double-entry system" (DNB).

ATHENAGORAS, of Athens
Oxonii: Theatro Sheldoniano, 1682. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Athenagoras was a 2nd-century early Church Father from Athens. While few of his writings still exist today, those that do were highly influential on other early philosophers such as Eusebius. In his book 'Embassy for the Christians', Athenagoras pleads to Marcus Aurelius that he and his son Commodus show mercy to Christians and stop their unjust discrimination. This book also directly denounced paganism and sought to prove to the Roman rulers that God was the one and only true God. He also discusses the horrors of cannibalism, the evils of Gladiator contests, and the use of drugs. His other works all seemed to stem from 'Embassy' - defenses of his views and Christian doctrines. This 1682 Oxford edition of the works of Athenagoras was translated out of the Greek into Latin by Conrad Gessner. Printed in Greek and Latin on opposite pages. [Attributes: First Edition]
