        James Steuarts answer to a letter writ by Mijn Heer Fagel, prisoner to the states of Holland and West-Frisland concerning the repeal of the penal laws and tests

      [Edinburgh] : London, printed and re-printed in Edinburgh: by John Reid, 1688. First Edinburgh Edition. 8vo. 39 pp. Signatures: A-E4, COMPLETE. Edges untrimmed (somewhat browned). Unobtrusive blindstamp on first and last leaves. Bound in recent quarter calf antique (Trevor Lloyd) THE REPEAL OF THE PENAL LAWS AND TEST ACTS DURING THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION. Whereas William of Orange supported repealing the Penal Laws, but opposed the repeal of the Test Acts, his predecessor James sought to repeal the Penal Laws AND the Test Acts, thereby allowing Catholics the right to hold public office. This is the rare first Edinburgh edition; ESTC lists only BL and NLS in the United Kingdom, and Huntington and Univ. of Illinois in the United States. James Stewart (1635-1713) was one of the leading Scottish radicals in the revolutionary movement. He was offered a pardon by James II, in return for which he sought to persuade his colleagues to return from exile in Holland. In the present pamphlet Stewart replies to a letter written by Gaspar Fagel (1634-1688) describing William's position on the repeal of the Penal Laws, the repeal of the Test Acts, and of religious toleration ("Letter writ by Mijn Heer Fagel, pensioner of Holland, to Mr. James Stewart, advocate"). "Fagel's letter provoked numerous replies and defences, and clearly established the international framework for the debate on toleration. The radical exiles in Holland, who were divided among themselves on the issue of support for, or opposition to, James' toleration policy, were placed directly in the midst of a propaganda and power struggle between James II and William, and ultimately between England and Holland. In very concrete and practical terms, the exiles' position on the issue of toleration was tied to their willingness to accept a pardon from James and return to Britain, as an endorsement of Stewart's claim that all was well there, or to remain in Holland and continue their fight against James, counting on the support and encouragement of William" (SOURCE: Richard Ashcraft, "Revolutionary Politics and Locke's Two Treatises of Government" p. 486). Ours is apparently the only copy currently on the market; no copies has appeared at auction in at least 30 years. Aldis 2821. Wing S5534.

        L' Afrique dressee sur les Relations les plus Recentes?

      Double page engraved map (28" x 20"), hand colored in outline, uncolored pictorial and title cartouche. Some meaningful foxing, especially in margins, wide margins, some wear at top and bottom of centerfold, mild creasing, lower left corner missing, but well away from map; strong impression. Robert De Vaugondy (1688-1766) was one of the leading cartographers in 18th century France. This map illustrates the African continent around 1756. Reflecting the available knowledge at the time, the map doesn't show as much detail in some portions of the interior, and tribal names are used in some areas. However, according to Norwich, the lakes and rivers appear quite accurate. The cartouche on this map illustrates a native woman reclining between two palm trees with a lion at her feet. Norwich 94.

        The Royal Commentaries of Peru

      1688. GARCILASO DE LA VEGA. The Royal Commentaries of Peru... Illustrated with sculptures. Written originally in Spanish, by the Inca Garcilasso de la Vega, and rendered into English, by Sir Paul Rycaut, Kt. viii, 1019, [9] pp. (pages 23-26 omitted in numbering). With an engraved portrait of the translator and 10 full-page engraved plates. Folio, bound in contemporary English mottled calf, spine gilt, recent red label. London: Miles Flesher for Jacob Tonson, 1688.|~| |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition in English. Garcilaso de la Vega's most important work, The Royal Commentaries of Peru, is a valuable source of information about the conquest of Peru and the lives and legends of the Inca. Garcilaso (1539-1617) was the son of the Spanish conqueror, Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega y Vargas, who had married an Inca princess named Chimpa Ocllo, the grand-daughter of the great Tupac Yupanqui, the last of the Incas. "The Inca mother taught her son the language of the ancient inhabitants of Peru, and suggested to him the idea of writing a history of these people. For this purpose, Garcilaso travelled over the entire empire of the Incas, got as much information suitable for his purpose as he could gather from both the natives and the new colonists, and consulted the few remaining monuments of that race... As a historian of Peru and its people, Garcilaso enjoyed singular advantages, for his mother, an Inca princess and her relations told him everything concerning their ancestors, omitting nothing, as they considered him one of their race. On the other hand, his father, who was the Governor of Cuzco, was on intimate terms with many of the conquerors, so that from them the historian heard the accounts of their deeds. Garcilaso, therefore, was in a position to get information at first hand from both the natives and their conquerors. His work is of great historic value, as it constitutes practically the only document we possess of the ancient civilization of Peru" (Catholic Encyclopedia). The work is arranged in two parts: the first concerns the original Incas, their religions, laws and government, and their reigns and conquests. The second part describes the manner by which the Incan empire was conquered by the Spaniards; it also relates the civil wars between the Piçarrists and the Almagrians. This folio volume contains numerous engravings which suggest admiration for Incan achievements, while condemning the Spanish destruction of Incan civilization. There are artistic renderings of Cuzco, Pizarro's arrival in Peru (which imitates numerous other depictions of initial encounters between Europeans and American natives), a vision of Spanish cruelty during their attack on Cuzco, the death of Atahualpa (while the Spaniards look on, innocently) and more. This is the first English translation of Garcilaso's Comentarios reales de los Incas (Part 1 of the Spanish original was first printed at Lisbon in 1608 (i.e. 1609); pt. 2 was first printed at Cordova in 1616). "... [Rycaut] had a very slight knowledge of the Spanish language and he did not scruple to make wild guesses at the meaning of sentences, and to omit whole chapters. Thus he only gives fourteen out of the twenty-six chapters in the first book, and sixteen out of the twenty-six in the second" (C.S. Markham's introduction to the First part of the Royal commentaries, 1869-71, v. 1, p. xvi). Of this first English edition, two other issues are known (priority indeterminate): one listing "C. Wilkinson" as publisher, the other "S. Heyrick." This copy formed part of the notable library of Arthur St. Leger, 1st Viscount of Doneraile and 1st Baron on Kilmayden, descendant of the Anglo-Norman house of St. Leger, and the owner of the fabulous estate at Doneraile Court (County Cork). Doneraile (d. 1727) was an active Freemason; his daughter was discovered witnessing a secret Freemason initiation ceremony in the Doneraile Library (over which her father was preciding). All present decided that the proceedings must remain secret; consequently the young woman herself was immediately initiated as a Freemason, and thus became one of only three female Freemasons in history.

        Paradise Lost A Poem in Twelve Books

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1688. Fourth edition overall, first illustrated and first folio edition. Folio (pages measure: 375 x 235 mm), collating: [4], 343, [7]. Complete with a frontispiece portrait of Milton and 12 plates, mainly by J B Medina. Contemporary English red morocco; covers with three concentric double fillet frames; spine with six raised bands, each compartment with a central lozenge and corner pieces; all edges gilt; contemporary combed marbled endpapers. Scattered slight spotting, stains, and age-toning; margins of a several early and late leaves worn and frayed, a couple of closed tears repaired not affecting text, occasional early marginal annotations. Extremities rubbed, lower corners a little worn, old repairs to the head and foot of the spine. A very good, authentic copy and quite scarce in a contemporary binding. And for what it's worth, I'd take this copy over one that's been washed, pressed, done-up and popped into a new binding with all the appeal of an aging call-girl in a prom dress. The first illustrated edition of Paradise Lost with a full page engraving at the beginning of each of the twelve books. The 1688 Milton was also one of the earliest examples of a subscription edition in England (together with the Shakespeare Second Folio), the copyright jointly owned by Jacob Tonson and Richard Bentley. This copy has an 18th century ownership inscription of George Downing on the title page - possibly a member of the Downing family of Cambridgeshire, two of whom are in the subscribers' list at the end of the book: Charles and William Downing, sons of George Downing, first baronet (1632-1684). If this is indeed a subscriber's copy, the red morocco binding would be consistent. Milton's magisterial epic, considered one of the finest works in the English language. According to Samuel Johnson Paradise Lost was "...a poem which...with respect to design may claim the first place, and with respect to performance, the second, among the productions of the human mind." Milton was in his late fifties - and blind - when the book was composed and so wrote the work almost entirely through dictation. He worked through incredible hardship, coping with the physical illness, gout, as well as the death of his young daughter and wife. Interestingly enough, Milton did not intend at first to write a poem about Satan and the creation of man but rather about King Arthur. Despite its genius, the book did not become immediately popular until the 1688 edition. It was the first edition that was accompanied by illustrations and one of the earliest copies of a book to be sold by subscription. Most of the plates were by John Baptist Medina, and the ones depicting Satan surveying his kingdom and the rebel angels in his court are particularly vivid and notable. PROVENANCE: (1) George Downing (inscription on title dated 1769). (2) Mary Frances Wright (inscription on title dated 1855). ESTC R15589; Coleridge 93b; Pforzheimer 720.

        A Short Account of the Authorities [Bound With] The Lord Chief

      1688. A Watershed Case Concerning Royal Prerogative at the Time of the Glorious Revolution Herbert, Sir Edward [1648?-1698]. A Short Account of the Authorities in Law, Upon which Judgement was Given in Sir. Edw. Hales His Case. Written by Sir. Edw. Herbert. Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, In Vindication of Himself. London: Printed for M. Clark, 1688. 39, [1] pp. [Bound with] A[twood], W[illiam] [c.1650-1712]. The Lord Chief Justice Herbert's Account Examin'd By W.A. Barrister at Law. Wherein it is Shewn, That Those Authorities in Law, Whereby he Would Excuse His Judgment in Sir Edward Hales His Case, Are Very Unfairly Cited, And as Ill Applied. London: Printed for J. Robinson, 1689. [ii], 72, [2] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 6"). Recent flexible marbled boards, printed paper title label to spine. Light toning to text, faint dampstaining along foot of text block, light soiling to title pages, internally clean. * Only editions. These two items, bound together in a previous deteriorated old binding, relate to a watershed case concerning royal prerogative. This case involved Sir Edward Hales, a Roman Catholic, who was convicted in 1686 at the Rochester Assizes for holding a military commission without taking the sacrament and the oaths of allegiance and supremacy of the Church of England, which were required by the Test Act. Hales said he was exempted because he was given a dispensation by King James II, a Catholic. Shortly afterwards, in a test action arranged by opponents of the king, Hales's coachman brought a collusive case against him in the Court of King's Bench, ostensibly to get a bounty for turning in a non-conformer. The case was argued before Herbert, who threw out the case. Moreover, his decision declared, without qualification, that kings of England are sovereign princes and that the nation's laws are his laws. The King is entitled, then, to dispense with penal laws in particular cases, such as Hales's failure to submit to the laws prescribed by the Test Act. Ultimately, the king himself is the sole judge of the laws of Great Britain. This verdict provoked a wave of controversy, and with it a torrent of pamphlets. A Short Account is a response to An Enquiry into the Power of Dispensing with Penal Statutes by Sir Robert Atkyns, which pointed out defects in Herbert's legal reasoning. Atwood's

Si tratta non della seconda parte della II ediz. - che ha caratteristiche tipografiche e contenuto diversi - ma di un?'aggiunta (probabilmente stampata dall?'ignoto editore che si cela sotto il nome francese) per completare l?'edizione originale di quei sonetti in più contenuti nella II edizione.

Chronicon Paschale; Brunet I,1435 & 1859; Ebert 3221,21) (Details: Dark blue spine with a red letterpiece and gilt fillets; wide uncut margins, thick paper; engraved printer's device of the Typographia Regia on the title; 4 beautiful engraved headpieces, 2 large initials, 2 engravings in the text; Greek text and Latin translation juxtaposed) (Condition: Cover worn, esp. at extremities; corners bumped; paper on covers grazed at places; letterpiece on the back damaged; some gatherings slightly browning) (Note: The Chronicon Paschale was compiled between 631 and 641 by a clergyman in the time of the emperor Herakleitos. Because the compiler is very interested in establishing the date of Eastern, Du Cange called it the Chronicon Paschale. The chronology starts with Adam, and ends in 628, where the manuscript breaks off. From 602 onward the compiler was eyewitness of the important events of his days. The historical data and the use of documents, records and charters make this book one of the most important sources of Greek christian chronology. Brunet mentiones that this work was number 4 of the series Corpus historiae byzantinae scriptores. Ebert however says that this is number 21 of the series. C. du Fresne du Cange, 1610-1688, best known for his large glossary on Medieval Latin, 'Glossarium ad scriptores Mediae & Infimae Latinitatis', was one of the greatest lexicographers of France, and his work in this field still remains unsurpassed. His work on byzantine history is best illustrated by his Historia Byzantina of 1680, and his edition of Ville-Hardouin's History of the Latin conquest of Constantinople, of 1657) (Provenance: Ex libris en codicibus Episcopi Brugensis XIX, 1863) (Collation: *6 (*1 blank) 2*4, â4 ê4 î4 ô4 û4, 2â4 2ê2, A - 4L4) (Photographs on request)

        The Free-Born Subject: Or, The Englishmans Birthright: Asserted

      1688. You May Be "Free-Born," But You're Still a "Subject" L'Estrange, Sir Roger [1616-1704]. The Free-Born Subject: Or, The Englishmans Birthright: Asserted Against all Tyrannical Usurpations Either in Church or State. London: Printed for Henry Brome, 1681. [ii], 30 pp. Quarto (8-1/4" x 6-1/2"). Recent stiff marbled wrappers, printed paper title panel to front cover, untrimmed edges. Light toning to text, some browning to margins of title page and following leaf, internally clean. A handsome copy of a scarce title. * Third edition. L'Estrange, a staunch Tory and defender of Royalist claims, was a prolific pamphleteer and author. He fought for the Royalists during the Civil War and ended the war in exile in Holland. His career flourished during the Restoration. He became the royal censor under Charles II, was knighted by King James II and became a Member of Parliament for Winchester from 1685 to 1689. First published in 1679, The Free-Born Subject, despite its Whiggish title, is a statement of absolutist political theory. It warns those who propose a "notion" like the law of nature rather than settling for the "fact" of customary obedience. What's more, too many stress being a "free-born" person rather than being a "subject." Failure to observe this distinction can only lead to trouble. He accepts the existence of legal limitations for subjects and kings, but to the latter only as far as his conscience determines. Other editions were published in 1680, 1681 and 1688. Few copies of any edition are held in North American law libraries, none of the third. Duncan-Page and Lynch, Roger L'Estrange and the Making of Restoration Culture 198.

The Legality of the Court Held by His Majesties Ecclesiastical Commissioners, Defended. Their Proceedings no Argument Against the Taking Off Penal Laws & Tests. London: Printed, And are to be Sold by Richard Janeway, 1688. [iv], 39, [1] pp. With a preliminary imprimatur leaf. Final page blank. Quarto (8-1/4" x 6-1/2"). Recent stiff marbled wrappers, printed paper title panel to front cover, untrimmed edges. Title page printed within ruled border. Light toning to text, soiling to recto of first leaf and verso of final leaf, internally clean. A handsome copy of a scarce title. * Only edition. Long an enemy of Catholicism and royal prerogative, Care shifted course in this pamphlet to support the right of King James II to exempt individuals from the requirements of the Test Act, which required university students, civil servants, elected officials and military officers to take oaths declaring allegiance to the Church of England and its supremacy and to partake in the Church's sacraments. Care's pamphlet relates to a recent controversy regarding Sir Edward Hales, a Catholic military officer who was granted an exemption to the Act's requirements by the king, an action deemed legal by Lord Chief Justice Sir Edward Herbert. Scholars are unsure why Care's wrote this pamphlet. Some believe he was making a case for religious freedom. Others detect a cynical desire for royal favor. If the latter is true Care made a poor decision; James II was deposed at the end of 1688. This is a scarce title.
