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.

Vincenzo CORONELLI (Venezia 1650 - 1718)
Rarissimo almanacco per l'anno bisestile del 1688 di Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. L'opera è dedicata all'Abate Rezzonico, il cui ritratto è in alto a sinistra. Membro di una nota famiglia comasca, eletto governatore dello Stato Pontificio, nel 1687 assunse anche il titolo di patrizio della Serenissima. Per ogni giorno dell'anno sono ricordati gli eventi più importanti legati alla storia della Republica di Venezia. Il calendario è circondato da una bella cornice ornamentale incisa, nel tipico stile del Coronelli, dove entro delle monete sono raffigurate le piante di 24 città della Grecia, sotto il controllo di Venezia. L'opera, una separata pubblicazione, si vendeva presso la bottega dell'editore Domenico Padoani, situata a Rialto. Coronelli aveva già realizzato un calendario simile nel 1666. L'opera è assai rara e ne abbiamo riscontrato un solo esemplare conservato alla Marciana di Venezia. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Extremely rare almanac for the year 1688 by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. The work is dedicated to Abbot Rezzonico, whose portrait is in the upper left. Member of a famous family of Como, was elected governor of the Papal States, in 1687 he also assumed the title of patrician of Venice. This almanac, for each day of the year, remember the most important events related to the history of the Republic of Venice. The calendar is surrounded by a beautiful ornamental engraved frame, in the typical style of the Coronelli, where the coins are represented by plants of 24 cities of Greece, mostly in Morea, under the control of Venice.

BAXTER, Richard
London: for Thomas Parkhurst..., Ric. Chiswell..., and Dorman Newman., 1688. 1688 PURITANSaints Everlasting Rest Richard Baxter Bible Devotional on Heaven"Lay siege to your sins and starve them out by keeping away the food and fuel which is their maintenance and life."― Richard Baxter Richard Baxter's "The Saints' Everlasting Rest" has long been recognized as one of the great classics of Christian devotion, and it is by this book that he is best known.This important text was written during a bout of extreme suffering from a debilitating illness, perhaps the inspiration for the work. In this work, Baxter identifies four different religious parties that would emerge - Moderate Presbyterians, Independents, Episcopals, and Erastians. Baxter wrote this book for his own personal enjoyment at a point when he was unemployed. Lowndes mentions this book, and all editions, to include the incredible frontispiece.

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.

The French mathematician and theologian, who invented the first digital calculator, wrestled with the inability of reason to understand God. His work with Fermat on the nature of probability presaged the development of modern decision theory, on the basis of which he argued that belief in God, although not rational, is a good bet: "Le coeur a ses raisons que le raison ne connait point" (The heart has its reasons that reason does not know at all.). Pascal died painfully at the age of 39 from what was likely cancer. The owner was likely Edward Jarvis Hodgson of Prince Edward Island who was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1879 and who worked for the Prince Edward Island railway and other federal government departments between 1882 and approximately 1889. From 1891 until 1910, he was Master of the Rolls and an Assistant Judge of the Supreme Court of Judicature of Prince Edward Island, and from 1896 until his death in 1911, Chancellor of King's College University.

ESTC R36213; Ira D. Gruber, Books and the British army in the age of the American Revolution, p. 186; not in Sloos, Warfare. First and only edition of an account of the second year of what was to be known as the Nine Years' War (1688-1697), "written by an English officer, who was there during the last campaign" (title-page). The Nine Years' War was a conflict between France and the "confederate forces": England, the Holy Roman Empire, Austria, Spain, the Dutch Republic and Savoy. The author narrates the events in the Dutch Republic and Spanish Netherlands from 9 June 1689 to 4 October 1689. He lists places and cities where the army passed through or camped, often describing the cities in great detail, commenting on their fortification, prominent architecture, customs and more. Included at the end is "a list of our army as it was drawn up at Tillroy camp" (pp. 25-32), listing the horse- and foot-regiments and dragoons, together with the names and nationalities of their commanders, the colours of the soldiers uniforms, and the number of men.With an inscription in ink on title-page, dated 1871. Page 26-27 very closely trimmed, leaves browned, some faint and mostly marginal water stains, otherwise a good copy.

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. Il termine Siam è un esonimo usato dagli occidentali già dal XVII secolo, a denominare quello che allora era in realtà il regno di Ayutthaya, corrispondente all'attuale Thailandia. Esemplare tratto dal rarissimo ""Citta, Fortezze e, Isole, e Porti principlai dell'Europa in Pianta et in Elevatione, Descritte, e Publicate Ad uso dell'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti dal Padre Maestro Coronelli Lettore, e Cosmografo della Serenissima Republica di Venezia"" edito a Venezia da Domenico Padovani nel 1689. Incisione in rame, magnifica prova, con pieni margini, tracce di colla alla piega centrale, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione." "Scarce and historically important map of the Siamese capital of Ayutthaya, by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, issued immediately prior to the Siamese Revolution of 1688, which henceforth restricted European activities in the kingdom.

Glorious Revolution - Romeijn de Hooghe, 1688
1688. WILLEM III VERTREKT NAAR ENGELAND VOOR DE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION 'Vertrek van S.K.H. na Engeland; den 11. Nov. 1688.' en 'Aankomst van S.K.H.D.P. van Orangie, den 15. en 16. Nov. in Engeland.' Kopergravure vervaardigd door Romeijn de Hooghe. Afm. 43,5 x 53,5 cm. Uitgegeven door Johannes Covens en Cornelis Mortier te Amsterdam in 1730 als deel van 'Geschiedenis van Engelandt' door Isaac de Larrey. We zien een stukje van de Glorious Revolution, de machtsovername door de Nederlandse stadhouder Willem III van Oranje-Nassau en zijn echtgenote Maria Stuart als koning en koningin van Engeland, Schotland en Ierland in 1688'1689. Gedurende zijn drie jaar durende regeerperiode, raakte koning Jacobus II van Engeland (tevens neef en schoonvader van Willem) verwikkeld in de politieke gevechten tussen het katholicisme en het protestantisme. Als katholiek was hij vervreemd van de beide belangrijkste partijen in Engeland. Willem vertrok met een leger van 14000 huursoldaten in Nederlandse dienst en 7000 anderen (onder meer Hugenoten, en Engelse en Schotse vrijwilligers) uit Hellevoetsluis naar Engeland op 11 november 1688. De armada van Willem was, met 53 oorlogsschepen en een kleine 400 transportschepen, ruim drie keer groter dan de Spaanse Armada een eeuw eerder. De snelheid waarmee de hele operatie werd opgezet maakte diepe indruk. Willem ging bij Brixham in Devon aan land en spoedig werd duidelijk dat zijn leger sterker was dan dat van Jacobus. Hij vluchtte naar Frankrijk en de Engelse Lords vroegen Willem de orde te herstellen. Op de voorstelling bovenaan zien we de uitzeilende vloo … [Click Below for Full Description]
