Milton, John
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 Geor … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chronicon Paschale; Brunet I,1435 & 1859; Graesse 1,586; Ebert 3221, XXI) (Details: Dark blue spine with a red letterpiece and gilt fillets. Wide uncut margins & thick paper. Big 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 with parallel Latin translation) (Condition: Binding worn, especially at the extremities. Corners bumped. Paper on the boards grazed at places. Letterpiece on the back damaged.

It was compiled between 631 and 641 by a clergyman in the time of the Byzantine emperor Herakleios (Heraclius). Because the compiler is very interested in establishing the date of Easter, the editor Du Cange called it the 'Chronicon Paschale'. It is both a rather dry chronicle and a computation of years, months and moons, in order to find the days to celebrate Easter, though it is not shy of relating anecdotes, delineating portraits of the chief characters, and recording prodigal events, such as comets and earthquakes. 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, cove … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Care, Henry
1688. A Plea for Religious Freedom (Or a Play for Royal Favor) Published on the Eve of the Glorious Revolution Care, Henry [1646-1688]. 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.

(WITH) Eusebii Pamphili Caesareae Palaestinae Episcopi Praeparatio evangelica. FRANCISCUS VIGERUS ROTHOMAGENSIS, SOCIET. JESV PRESBITERS ex MMSS. CODD...(2 VOLUMES)Size: 24cm x 37cm, Includes his LIBER CONTRA HIEROCLEM and ADVERSUS MARCELLUM ANCYRAE EIPSCOPUM. Two volumes. Folio.

Bound in full period vellum with hand-lettered spine titles, 2nd volume with repair to cracked vellum on spine and joint. Moderate foxing to title page, else clean, minor soil to cover with bumped corners. Joint on 1st volume is cracked but still holding. Eusebius, Greek ecclesiastical historian, is known as the father of church history. "The apologetic writings of Eusebius are the Praeparatio Evangelica... and the Demonstratio Evangelica... They are both, but especially the former, a rich storehouse of information on antiquity, particularly on the philosophy and religion of the Greeks." (Seyffert. Dictionnary of Classical Antiquities. p. 231). "The Praeparatio evangelica ('preparation for the gospel'), in which he shows that the Greek tradition is inferior to the Hebrew and the best of Greek philosophy merely coincided with or was derived from biblical teaching, is incidentally valuable in that it includes many quotations from classical authors now lost."

Halifax, George Sevile, Marquis of
By the Honourable Sir W. C., London, 1688, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good+, Dust Jacket Condition: None, 3rd EditionSize: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall, This is a 43 page item originally done as a pamphlet (so our restorer surmises) and now superbly laid into full leather boards. Restorer advises me that this is not a sewn in making and that the glue is reversible. In addition to lavish gilt stamping of the boards, the spine and the boards interior edges, it has marbled pastedowns and endsheets that have been used to excellent effect. First pastedown has Ex-libris plate from the scholar William Appleton Aiken. Collation is in quarto, primarily. The boards of the book measure 8'' x 6 1/4''. Structure is as follows, there are two restored endsheets the first of which has small pencilled notes from prior owner (re-Halifax, Wing H296, and placements). Next appears title page giving the date in Roman Numerals, MDCLXXXVIII, verso blank. Next is a 2 page preface, unpaginated. Following this the text begins, paginated 1 through 43. Text measures 7 3/4'' x 5 3/4'', fore-edge to gutter. I note darkening of the blank verso of page 43 and one dark foxing spot, about pencil eraser size page 15/16. Text is otherwise remarkable for its suppleness and legibility. The grade given above maybe thought of as a compromise between the beautiful restoration and the age of the pamphlet, Book

Dellon, Charles
France: Daniel Horthhemels, 1688. This book was written by a physician, C. Dellon, who was imprisoned during the Inquisition. It is an account of his experience. The book is in French. All the illustrations are intact including those that are foldout. Full leather binding. Raised bands on spine. On front pasted down endpaper is a notation (ostensibly by a former owner) who informs as to author and some details of his life. The binding is showing wear and some cracking but is intact. This is, possibly, a very early rebind of this work. Assumed first French edition.. Full-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.

Diogenes Laertius
London: Edward Brewster, 1688. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. 2 volumes in similar, but not identical, contemporary calf (due to the gap between the 1688 date of volume one and 1696 when the second volume was finally published. Volume one is also slightly larger.). Modest wear, hinges a little rubbed and starting, wear at spine ends - both quite sound overall. Scattered foxing and staining, a few minor tears in the margins, mostly in volume one. Clean overall and a nice pair with the armorial bookplates of Thomas Cartwright of Aynho. (xiv), 589pp; (iv), 460pp with the attractive frontis portrait in volume one. & & Though often uncritical, uneven, and unphilosophical, Diogenes Laertius was widely read and profoundly influential through his portrayal of the human side of the ancient philosophers. Size: Octavo (8vo). 2-volume set (complete). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Philosophy; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 045180.
