      London: Printed by J. Bennet, for WIlliam Abington, 1684. - Rumbustious and Vitriolic, Satiric and SavageL’ESTRANGE, Roger. The Observator, in Dialogue. The First Volume [Nos. 1 (Wednesday April 13, 1681)-470 (Wednesday, January 9, 1683)]. London: Printed by J. Bennet, for William Abington, 1684.First collected edition of The Observator, Nos. 1-470. Folio (13 1/8 x 8 1/8 inches; 333 x 207 mm.). [2], [4, "To the Reader"], [8, "The Table"], [3, contents], [1, blank] pp. followed by The Observator Nos. 1-470 (unpaginated). Engraved frontispiece portrait of Roger L’Estrange, dated 1684, by R. White after G. Kneller.Modern antique-style panelled calf. Covers decoratively ruled and tooled in blind, spine richly tooled in gilt in compartments with six raised bands and red morocco gilt lettering label, board edges and turn-ins decoratively tooled in blind, marbled endpapers. An excellent copy."The Reader will find in the First Number of This Collection, the True Intent, and Design of the Undertaking; And he will likewise find, in the very Date of it, (April 13. 1681.) the Absolute Neccessity of some Such Application, to Encounter the Notorious Falsehoods; the Malicious Scandals, and the Poysonous Doctrines of That Season" ("To the Reader")."Rumbustious and vitriolic, satiric and savage, week after week for six years and through two million words, Roger L'Estrange's newspaper, the Observator, corroded the foundations of Whiggery "The Observator was the work of a compulsive writer, a feat of literary endurance L'Estrange was, said his enemies, the 'scribbler-general of Tory-land' Its prose hectic, its thoughts haphazard, the Observator lay, its author admitted, somewhere 'betwixt fooling and philosophizing.' It transposed to print the Restoration's fondest verbal facility, raillery, delivering a cascade of libel and abuse, tempered by seriocomic moralizing, and philosophy and political theory reduced to epithets and exclamations."Its deliberate coarseness puts it at an arresting remove from the high eloquence of Dryden. Polite it was not. The Observator was Toryism at its most unbuttoned and vulgar. It was routinely scatological, or, more precisely, urological. The Whig newsmonger Langley Curtis is 'the common piss pot [for] the fanatical clubs about town." Henry Care, 'holds up his leg and pisses upon the government "The relentless repetitiveness of the Observator is half-redeemed by its inventiveness. The Whigs are not just a faction: they are a 'cabal,' 'consult,' consistory,' 'confederacy,' conspiracy, ' This was politics by thesaurus" (Mark Goldie. Roger L'Estrange's Observator and the Exorcism of the Plot. In Roger L'Estrange and the Making of Restoration Culture, edited by Anne Duncan-Page and Beth Lynch, pp. 67-68).Roger L'Estrange (1616-1704) fought on the Royalist side in the English Civil War. In 1644 he led a conspiracy to deliver the town of Lynn to the king and was sentenced to death as a spy. He escaped and took refuge in Holland.In 1653, he returned to England. By 1659, however, he was making his presence as a Royalist known. He printed several pamphlets supporting a return of Charles II.As a reward for his propaganda, L'Estrange was appointed Surveyor of the Imprimery (Printing Press) in 1663. Thereafter, also appointed Licenser of the Press, he retained both positions until the lapse of the Licensing of the Press Act in 1679.As Licenser and Surveyor, L’Estrange was charged with the prevention of the publication of dissenting writings, and authorized to search the premises of printers and booksellers on the merest suspicion of dissension. L’Estrange excelled at this, hunting down hidden presses and enlisting peace officers and soldiers to suppress their activities. He soon came to be known as the "Bloodhound of the Press." He succeeded not only in checking allegedly seditious publications but also in limiting political controversy and reducing debate.Toward the end of 1680, he was forced to flee the country by the political opposition but on his return in 1681 he established The

A fascinating book, with an allegorical frontispiece engraving (accompanied by an explanation, in verse), and an engraving showing the seating arrangements of the trial court. Nalson, (d. 1686 author, historian and clegyman), perpetuates the Royalist point of view in his long introduction, this being followed by a fascinating transcript of the proceedings of the trial, together with speeches made by the king before his death. John Phelps was born in about 1619 in Salisbury, Wilts. In 1648-49, he was called by England's "Rump Parliament" to serve as Clerk of the High Court at the trial of King Charles I. On 14 May 1660 the House of Commons voted the arrest of Phelps and his fellow clerk Broughton. Phelps evaded pursuit and escaped to Lausanne, Switzerland in the company of Ludlow, one of the regicides. Wing N 116 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Calf c. 1684, rebacked, corners repaired. Marginal repairs to first and last few leaves, light soiling and toning, a few fox-marks, but very good. First and Only Complete Edition of Willis's Works in English, translated by the poet Samuel Pordage; the collection includes the First Edition in English of Willis's De anima brutorum. The volume is divided into six separately paginated sections, each with its own title-leaf. Included are English versions of Willis's three great works on the brain--Cerebri anatome, Pathologiae cerebri and De anima brutorum--as well as his clinical and pharmaceutical treatises. In addition to his invaluable work in the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, Willis was the first to distinguish true diabetes mellitus, and showed that the polyuria was not due to any disease of the kidneys. He anticipated the recognition of hormones in the circulation of his suggestion that the phenomena of puberty were due to a ferment distributed through the body from the genitals. He discovered the superficial lymphatics of the lungs, distinguished acute tuberculosis from the chronic fibroid type and gave the first clinical and pathological account of emphysema. Garrison-Morton notes that "the modern treatment of asthma really begins with Willis, who considered it to be of nervous origin" (Garrison-Morton 3165) and that "Willis was probably the first to report an epidemic of cerebrospinal fever" (Garrison-Morton 4673).

Al frontespizio, stemma calcografico all'Arcivescovo Charles Maurice Le Tellier, dedicatario dell'opera; il blasone del religioso è ripetuto sulla testatina incisa su rame dal Giffart che sormonta la dedicatoria, affiancato da putti, da un leone, da una figura femminile allegorica. Alla dedica fanno seguito un "Index Caesarum, et Augustarum", un indice dei nomi dei magistrati, dei pretori, dei pontefici, un indice delle cose notabili. Aloni marginali alle prime 2 cc. e alle ultime 20 p. ca., nonché alle ultime cc. bianche, al contropiatto e al piatto posteriori; sparse bruniture e fioriture; nell'insieme, più che discreto esemplare a pieni margini. Edizione originale di questa trattazione sulle monete di Grecia e di Roma antica. L'Hardouin (Quimper, Bretagna,1646-Parigi, 1729), sacerdote gesuita, è noto ancora oggi per le sue teorie sul mondo classico estremamente bizzarre e destituite di fondamento per la loro paradossalità già all'epoca; egli credette che la maggior parte delle opere dell'antichità classica (ad eccezione dei poemi omerici, di Erodoto, di Cicerone, di Plinio il Vecchio, delle "Georgiche" virgiliane, delle "Satire" e delle "Epistole" di Orazio) fossero falsi prodotti nel XIII secolo dai monaci benedettini. Bibliotecario del Collège Louis le Grand dal 1683, fu dapprima editore di classici (tra l'altro di una "Naturalis Historia" pliniana ad usum Delphini), poi si volse prevalentemente agli studi numismatici. Nonostante l'assurdità delle sue teorie, ampi e di notevole valore furono i suoi apporti alla storia della numismatica. Brunet, VI, 29760. De Backer-Sommervogel, IV, 84-111.

        SATYRAE [together with] SATYRARUM

      Amstelaedami (Amsterdam): Henricum Wetstenium. 1684. hb. Thick 8vo, . This is a new edition ("Editio Nova"), with commentaries, a life of Juvenal, and a bibliography of various editions. Decimus Junius Juvenalis, known in English as Juvenal, was a Roman poet (1st to 2nd century AD), who wrote a series of poems which, together, are called the "Satires" ("Satyrae"). He wrote at least 16 poems in dactylic hexameter form, which were divided between five books, and which covered many, if not most, aspects of life in pagan Rome. There is no complete list of Juvenal's manuscripts but at least 500 medieval copies are known to exist. This copy is bound in vellum with an eleborate device embossed in gilt on the front board. As was the practice then, the spine is hand-lettered with the title, year, and showing was appears to be a Roman soldier, flanked by two maidens in front of whom kneels a satyr. All 16 of the poems are present, followed by a comprehensive index. The text encompasses 525 pages, but the index is unpaginated. Bound-in after this is the "Satyrarum" (Satirarum) of the 1st century AD Roman satiric poet Auli Persii Flacci (Aulus Persius Flaccus); in six books of 112 pages with an unpaginated index at end. Text throughout is in Latin. All pages clean, althought there is some rippling. One small burn hole (?) to front cover, usual staining to vellum, althought less than might otherwise be expected. Binding is good, although front hinge starting. Overall, a good, to good plus, copy. .

Extremely well preserved, supple copy in original binding, with excellent impressions. Extremely rare copy of a classic work produced in 1661 during Japan’s intellectual awakening by the important mathematician Isomura Yoshinori (d. 1710). This much enlarged third edition (1684) includes new uses for pi, such as novel calculations of the surface of a sphere. It solves other practical problems, for instance, the best means of surveying difficult landscapes, and the determination of the volumes of solids. These pursuits are illustrated in a Western style with Eastern inflections. The surveying diagrams in particular could be copied directly from a Western manual, if it were not for local touches, such as the clearly-depicted bamboo canes the surveyors use to calculate the height of a tall willow or faraway misty peak.Isomura was known as "master of the abacus." He taught in a mathematical tradition that sharpened many notable minds over the centuries (including Machiavelli in 15th century Italy). Indeed, Japanese mathematics advanced so far during the seventeenth century that Isomura could complete the "rough approach to an integral calculus" in this book. A similar type of calculus would be developed in Europe by Leibniz. Isomura was also fascinated with the properties and combinations of numbers in "magic squares, magic circles and magic wheels." One experimental use of these formats formed the basis for the now popular puzzle game Sudoku, a discovery usually attributed to the 18th-century Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler. Isomura’s abacus and proto-Sudoku grids are illustrated throughout the volume, bringing an even more modern aspect to its design. This cutting-edge mathematical work demonstrates the graphical influence of the West, just as it absorbs and improves upon Western mathematics. A stunning copy of an extremely rare and important text.*D.E. Smith and Y.

        Historia de la Conquista de Mexico, Poblacion y Progresos de la America Septentional, Concida por el Nombre de Nueva Espana

      En la Imprenta de Bernardo de Villa-Diego, Madrid 1684 - [xvii]+548+[16] pages. Quarto (11 1/4" x 8 1/4") bound in old velum with original string ties still in place. From the library of George M Foster. 1st edition. Antonio de Solís y Ribadeneyra (1610 - April 19, 1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was born at Alcalá de Henares (less probably, Plasencia). He studied law at Salamanca, where he produced a comedy entitled Amor y obligación, which was acted in 1627. He became secretary to the count of Oropesa, and in 1654 he was appointed secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV. Later he obtained the lucrative post of chronicler of the Indies, and, on taking orders in 1671 severed his connexion with the stage. He died at Madrid on the 19th of April 1686. Of his ten extant plays, two have some place in the history of the drama. El Antor al use was adapted by Scarron and again by Thomas Corneille as L'Amour de la mode, while La Gitanilla de Madrid, itself founded on the novela of Cervantes, has been utilized directly or indirectly by PA Wolff, Victor Hugo and Longfellow. The titles of the remaining seven are Triunfos de amor y fortuna, Eurídice y Orfeo, El Alcetzar del secrete, Las Amazonas, El doctor Carlino, Un bobo hace ciento, and Amparar el enemigo. Amor y obligación survives in a manuscript at the Biblioteca Nacional. The Historia de la conquista de México, población y progresos de la América septentrional, conocida por el nombre de Nueva España, covering the three years between the appointment of Cortés to command the invading force and the fall of the city, deservedly ranks as a Spanish prose classic. It was published in 1684; an English translation by Townshend appeared in 1724. George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in. Condition: Lacks Foster stamp and acquiry date, soiled, extremity wear, repair to title verso, page 77 with marginal tear else a very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        AFRICA Secundum legitimas Projectionis Stereographic ae regulas

      Nuremberg: Homann Heirs. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 x 21.5". This decorative map of Africa provides then-contemporary knowledge about the coastal regions of the continent. Beginning with the example of J.B. Homann's 175 map of Africa, Haas then added additional cartographic information gleaned from the work of French cartographers Delisle and D'Anville. Significant details include the distinct regions of Egypt, Nubia and Abyssinia, the inclusion of Lake Nyasa as Lac Marawi, and the labeling of the Congo and the Dutch settlements of Castell Batov and Stellenbosch at the Cape. However, the map%u2019s most striking feature is its cartouche, a scene of Europeans and Africans interacting that fills the lower left corner of the map. Lions another indigenous animals resting in the foreground suggest this scene is a peaceful one, characterized--somewhat ficticiously--by cooperation and understanding rather than warfare. Table Bay and Table Mountain in Capetown are visible in the distance. With its incorporation of a descriptive text, the cartouche demonstrates how Europeans viewed Africa as an exotic land of both intrigue and potential. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears. Overall clean impression. Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1724) was a mathematician, astronomer, and cartographer. He published many of his maps under the firm of the Homann Heirs, who carried on the work of mapmaker Johann Baptist Homann. This map illustrates the European view of African in the early part of the 18th century.

Reissue of the rare Latin translation first published in Utrecht, by Meinardus van Dreunen in 1684, of Swammerdam's famous work on the metamorphosis of insects. Since Aristotle, the theory on insects was based on three suppositions, insects lack internal anatomy, they originate by spontaneous generation and they develop by metamorphosis. The idea of metamorphosis was that a sudden and total change from one kind of creature into another, comparable to the alchemical transmutation of a base metal into gold. Swammerdam's thesis was fundamentally new and significant. He believed all three suppositions to be false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas.With a small tear, the first few pages heavily browned and foxed, one small tear and some occasional slight damp stains and foxing, but with the plates in very good condition. Binding re-backed and slightly rubbed near the edges. Good copy.

        L'Art de Peinture

      Peinture...Traduit en François. Enrichy de Remarques, reveu, corrigé, & augmenté. Troisieme Edition. Engraved vignette on title & 32 plates (incl. an engraved title). 6 p.l., 276 pp.; [62] pp. 8vo, cont. speckled calf (joints at head with very short cracks), dark red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: N. Langlois, 1684. Third edition, revised, corrected, and enlarged, of this famous and influential poem on painting in elegant Latin hexameter, translated by Roger de Piles (1635-1709). Dufresnoy (1611-68), a native of Paris, studied painting in Rome and Venice and, upon his return, was engaged to furnish the paintings for the magnificent Château du Raincy. He provided many paintings for the chapel, salons, and pavilion but suffered paralysis after two years and was obliged to retire. The present work was originally published in Latin as De Arte Graphica (1st ed.:1668); the work enjoyed many editions in the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. This edition contains the original Latin text with French translation on facing pages. Written during his Italian sojourn, it embodies Dufresnoy's observations on the art of painting and may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art, with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time though the poetical merits are slender in style (formed chiefly on Lucretius and Horace). Dufresnoy stressed the importance of color as an essential component of artistic beauty. This edition contains in the second part the valuable engravings -- engraved title and 31 plates -- by Sebastian Le Clerc (1637-1714), entitled "Figures d'Academie pour aprendre à désiner." Provenance: John Evelyn, (sale Christie's London, 30 Nov. 1977, lot 495) with his acquisition notes. Modern booklabel of Peter A. Wick. A fine and crisp copy. ❧ Benezit, Vol. 4, p. 1287.

        De Ratione Juris Docendi & Discendi Dialogus [bound with] De Jure

      1684. One of the Great Authorities on Roman-Dutch Law Huber, Ulrik [1636-1694]. De Ratione Juris Docendi & Discendi Dialogus. Franeker: Ex Officina Joh. Gyselaar, 1684.

Editio, Plus Tertia Parte, Nova Faciem Operis Oratio Praemissa & Argumenta Capitum in Calce Subjecta Exhibent. Franeker: Apud Johannem Gyselaar, 1684. [xxxviii], 605, [37] pp. Octavo (6-1/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary calf, raised bands to spine. Moderate rubbing with light wear to extremities, corners bumped, joints starting at head, front hinge cracked, later owner bookplate to front pastedown. Woodcut title vignettes, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text. Faint early owner annotations to endleaves, title page of Ratione Juris and a few other leaves in both works. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown. * Ratione Juris, only edition; Jure Civitatis, third edition. Huber was a well-known Dutch jurist and professor at the Universities of Franeker, Utrecht and Leyden. He was also a judge in Friesland and the author of numerous legal works on Roman and Roman-Dutch law including Heedendaagse Rechtsgeleertheyt (1686), which was later translated as The Jurisprudence of My Time. He was as important in his day as Grotius. Huber's work was renowned for his humanism and knowledge of life. It remains influential in South African law. Ratione Juris is an essay on legal reasoning. First published in 1672, his influential Jure Civitatis examines public law through perspectives drawn from jurisprudence and political science. As one would expect, Roman, canon and natural-law principles play a leading role. The laws of the Dutch states are also considered, though less extensively.

A good complete sturdy copy of the first edition. Thomas Burnet (1635 - 1715), theologian and writer on cosmology was educated at Cambridge, and became Master of Charterhouse and Clerk of the Closet to William III. This book on which his fame rests was first published in Latin in 1681 (Telluris Theoria Sacra) and was the most popular work of geology of the 17th century. It attracted much attention and was translated into English in 1684, going into many editions. In it Burnet suggested that the earth was a perfect hollow sphere with most of the water inside until Noah's Flood, at which time mountains and oceans appeared. He attempted to keep his argument as scientific as possible, carefully (but incorrectly) calculating the amount of water on Earth. By his calculations, there was not enough water on Earth to account for Noah's Flood. His explanation was that the water came from beneath the Earth's surface. Isaac Newton was an admirer of Burnet's theological approach to geological processes. Burnet had sought his aid and asked him to comment on the completed manuscript. Two letters from Newton to Burnet have survived. Newton wrote suggesting the possibility that when God created the Earth, the days were longer. However, Burnet did not find this explanation scientific enough. Shortening the days would require an intervention on God's part. Burnet held the belief that God created the world and all its processes perfectly from the start. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 94. When Burnet's book became a subject of greater controversy, he replied to the criticism with an expanded Latin edition published in 1689, and a similar English edition in 1691.

The volume is divided into six separately paginated sections, each with its own title-leaf. Included are English versions of Willis&#39;s three great works on the brain--Cerebri anatome, Pathologiae cerebri and De anima brutorum--as well as his clinical and pharmaceutical treatises. In addition to his invaluable work in the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, Willis was the first to distinguish true diabetes mellitus, and showed that the polyuria was not due to any disease of the kidneys. He anticipated the recognition of hormones in the circulation of his suggestion that the phenomena of puberty were due to a ferment distributed through the body from the genitals. He discovered the superficial lymphatics of the lungs, distinguished acute tuberculosis from the chronic fibroid type and gave the first clinical and pathological account of emphysema. Garrison-Morton notes that "the modern treatment of asthma really begins with Willis, who considered it to be of nervous origin" (Garrison-Morton 3165) and that "Willis was probably the first to report an epidemic of cerebrospinal fever" (Garrison-Morton 4673).

A good complete sturdy copy of the first edition. Thomas Burnet (1635 -1715), theologian and writer on cosmology was educated at Cambridge, and became Master of Charterhouse and Clerk of the Closet to William III. This book on which his fame rests was first published in Latin in 1681 (Telluris Theoria Sacra) and was the most popular work of geology of the 17th century. It attracted much attention and was translated into English in 1684, going into many editions. In it Burnet suggested that the earth was a perfect hollow sphere with most of the water inside until Noah&#39;s Flood, at which time mountains and oceans appeared. He attempted to keep his argument as scientific as possible, carefully (but incorrectly) calculating the amount of water on Earth. By his calculations, there was not enough water on Earth to account for Noah&#39;s Flood. His explanation was that the water came from beneath the Earth&#39;s surface. Isaac Newton was an admirer of Burnet&#39;s theological approach to geological processes. Burnet had sought his aid and asked him to comment on the completed manuscript. Two letters from Newton to Burnet have survived. Newton wrote suggesting the possibility that when God created the Earth, the days were longer. However, Burnet did not find this explanation scientific enough. Shortening the days would require an intervention on God&#39;s part. Burnet held the belief that God created the world and all its processes perfectly from the start. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 94. When Burnet&#39;s book became a subject of greater controversy, he replied to the criticism with an expanded Latin edition published in 1689, and a similar English edition in 1691.

        The Countermine: Or, a Short, but True Discovery of the Dangerous Principles, and Secret Practices of the Dissenting Party Especially the Presbyterians: Shewing That Religion Is Pretended, but Rebellion Is Intended

      Printed by H. Hills Jun. for Tho. Dring, 1684. Printed by H. Hills Jun. for Tho. Dring. Hardcover. B00JRDP3GC 1684 &#39;Fourth Impression with Additions,&#39; &#39;Printed by H. Hills Jun. for Tho. Dring, at Chancery-lane end in Fleet-street, and John Leigh at Stationers-Hall&#39; (London) 4 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches tall burgundy cloth hardbound, gilt lettering to spine, marbled endpapers, [4], lvi, 212 pp. With initial advertisement leaf (&#39;Books Writ by the Author&#39;) and both blank endpapers, complete. An important early anti-Presbyterian polemic. Very slight rubbing to covers. Paper repairs to upper tips of first five leaves, with slight worming to the upper margins of the next five leaves, not effecting text. 1879 ink prior owner name to front free-endpaper and top margin of page xv, by Dr. Charles Richard Earley (1823-1898), a well known physician in Ridgway, Pennsylvania. Crudely repaired two-inch closed tear to margin of one page, not effecting legibility of text. Rear free-endpaper foxed and edge-chipped, lacking the lower tip. Otherwise, apart from foxing or creasing to an occasional page, a nicely preserved copy of an exceptionally scarce edition of this controversial work. References: Wing (1996) N100; ESTC No. R232420. This is one of two issues of the fourth impression, both of which are rare - in the other, ESTC No. R37717, the edition statement reads &#39;The fourth impression with editions&#39; [sic]. The English Short Title Catalog records only three copies of each variant in collections worldwide. Only one copy of this imprint recorded in North America, at the Huntington Library, with the other two copies at the British Library and Oxford University&#39;s All Souls College. ~OOO~ Ian Higgins in &#39;Jonathan Swift&#39;s political confession&#39; (2010) discusses the influence on Swift (1667-1745) of writers such as John Nalson, who is one of those named as among the literary canon of &#39;ironical, satirical, and polemical Divines&#39; in the last work of English philosopher Anthony Collins (1676-1729), &#39;A Discourse Concerning Ridicule and Irony in Writing&#39; (1729). Higgins describes Nalson as &#39;a prolific polemical writer against Presbyterianism and the sects,&#39; and says his vitriolic works, especially against Catholicism, are &#39;part of the arsenal upon which Swift drew in his satire.&#39; John Nalson (1638?-1686) was an English clergyman, historian and early Tory pamphleteer. He was an active polemical writer on the side of the government during the latter part of the reign of Charles II. This work, &#39;The Countermine,&#39; first published in 1677, quickly went through three editions, and was highly praised by Roger L&#39;Estrange (1616-1704). Published anonymously, and once incorrectly attributed to John Bramhall, its real authorship was soon discovered, and the parliament of 1678, in which the opposition, whom he had attacked, had the majority, resolved to call Nalson to account. On 26 March 1678 he was sent for on the charge of having written a pamphlet called &#39;A Letter from a Jesuit in Paris, showing the most efficient way to ruin the Government and the Protestant Religion,&#39; in which the names of various members of parliament were introduced. After being kept in custody for about a month, he was discharged, but ordered to be put out of the commission of the peace, and to be reprimanded by the speaker (1 May). Nalson&#39;s major work is the &#39;Impartial Collection of the Great Affairs of State, from the beginning of the Scotch Rebellion in the year 1639 to the murder of King Charles I.&#39; His only other historical work was &#39;A True Copy of the Journal of the High Court of Justice for the Trial of K. Charles I&#39; (1684). Full title of the work for sale: &#39;The countermine: or, A short, but true discovery of the dangerous principles, and secret practices of the dissenting party especially the Presbyterians: shewing that religion is pretended, but rebellion is intended. And in order thereto the foundation of monarchy in the state, and episcopacy in the church, are undermined. The fourth impression with additions. By J. Nalson, LL.D.&#39; . Very Good. 1684. Fourth Edition.
