Sir James Stewart was a lawyer and political opponent of the Stuarts. He was exiled for some time, before receiving a pardon from James II of Great Britain in 1687. Following the Glorious Revolution he was appointed Lord Advocate. This work regards the repeal of the Penal Laws and Test Acts during the Glorious Revolution. William of Orange wished to repeal the Penal Laws but opposed the repeal of the Test Acts. James II had wished to repeal both which would have allowed Catholics to hold public office. Gaspar Fagel was responsible for authoring correspondence from and on behalf of William III during the English Revolution of 1688. This work is Sir James Stewart's reaction to one of Gasper Fagel's letters. William used Fagel and his letters to reassure English Nonconformists or Dissenters that they would be allowed to practice religion. The 'Letter writ by Mijn H … [Click Below for Full Description]

Enjoyed. With Brief Observations Thereupon
ont> George Larkin : London, 1688. A very scarce third edition of the political journalist Henry Care's interesting pamphlet looking at the penal laws of the Church of England, and the persecution of the laws against dissenters. An interesting work on the lead up to the Glorious Revolution The third edition of this work. A very scarce work. ESTC citation number R13546. Collated from the ESTC, complete. This work is a quarto, the signatures run as [A4], B-C4. 'Draconica' is a compendium of the penal laws, a series of laws that sought to uphold the Church of England against Catholics and Protestants. The laws imposed punishments, civil penalties, and civil disabilities upon 'dissenters'. This work lays out the laws, with the author's intent to expose the persecutory practices in the Anglican church towards dissenters. The author urges dissenters to support King James II, after James II's Declaration of Indulgence, in which the King tried to take a step towards establishing freedom of religion in Britain. The Church of England were greatly opposed to the Declaration of Indulgence, as it meant that their penal laws enforcing the public to conform to the Church of England would be suspended. This is an important and interesting work, as it shows the state of Britain in the lead up to the Glorious Revolution, which happened in November of 1688, in which James II was deposed. Written by Henry Care, who was a court propagandist alongside L'Estrange and William Penn after James II came to the throne. He was a political journalist, and his publications include 'English Liberties'. He … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Dissenter
ont> G. Larkin : London, 1688. A very scarce copy of this anonymous pamphlet discussing James II's Declaration of Indulgence, one of the factors that led to his deposition in the 1688 Glorious Revolution. A very scarce work. This work is quarto, with the signatures running as A-C4. ESTC citation number R10242. Printed by G. Larkin, at the Two Swans without Bishopsgate in London. Collated from the ESTC, complete. This work discusses King James II's Declaration of Indulgence, a proclamation issues to try and start establishing the freedom of religion in Britain. The intention was to suspend penal laws enforcing people to conform to the Church of England, giving them the right to worship in their own homes or chapels as the saw fit. The declaration granted toleration to Christian denominations, Catholic, and Protestants. This possibly shows James' intention, as he was a Catholic, which was a minority religion at the time, and was reviled by the majority of his subjects. Some of the reasons that this declaration was controversial by the British public was because they thought that the toleration would extend to paganism, Island, or Judaism, which the Anglicans in England opposed. Very few clergy read the declaration in Church, and this work was written in reply to those clergy, in particular to the author of a work titled 'The Vanity of All Pretensions for Toleration'. In response to James' delaraction, seven bishops, alongside the Archbishop of Canterbury, presented a petition to the King declaring the declaration illegal. This was seen as a rebellion by James, and he had the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes BLAEU (Alkmaar 1571 - Amsterdam 1663)
1688. "Mappa del Giappone e della Corea dall'Atlas Sinensis di Joan Blaeu. Anche se intitolata ""Iaponia Regnum"", la caratteristica più interessante di questa mappa è che si tratta della prima a mostrare correttamente la Corea correttamente come una penisola, a differenza delle precedenti che la raffiguravano come un'isola. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva, piccoli restauri visibilie al verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione." Nice example of Blaeu's map of Japan & Korea from Joan Blaeu's Atlas Sinensis. While titled as a map of Japan, perhaps the single most noteworthy feature of this map is as the first map to show Korea correctly as a peninsula, as opposed to an island on earlier maps.

Engraved armorial title-vignette by Francesco Nacci which includes a figure holding a football, two folding engraved plates, the first by Alexander Cecchini showing the players lined up for the start of play in the Piazza Sante Croce and the second a diagram of their positions. [6]ff. 180 pp. 4to., contemporary vellum over paste-board, spine ruled and lettered in gilt with floral device in 6 of the 7 compartments. A few small wormholes in the binding, otherwise a superb, bright and crisp copy. Housed in a later tan leather clamshell box (with some wear but still attractive). A superb copy of the first edition of Pietro Bini's anthology of works on Florentine football, published to commemmorate the game played during the wedding festivities of Ferdinando de' Medici and Princess Violante Beatrice of Bavaria in December to January 1688-9. The players in this celebratory game were all members of the Florentine aristocracy and they are all listed as teams at the end under 'Europei (color Rosino) and Asiatici (Color Verde)'.

1688. " Rara e storicamente importante mappa dell'antica capitale del Siam, Ayuthaya, ideata dal Coronelli immediatamente prima della rivoluzione siamese del 1688, che limitò le attività europee nella regione.
