TITUS, Content; Moore Family of Newtown[e], Long Island, New York
Manuscript Document Signed. One page, edges untrimmed. 12.25" x 8". Newtown, Queens County, Long Island, New York. June 19, 1688. Document Signed by Gorsham Moore, Samuel Moore, Joseph Moore, Content Titus, etc. with their black wax seals. Also signed and affirmed by Lambert Woodhull and Daniell Phillips, clerk. Verso with slightly over ten lines of text docketed by Daniell Phillips, signed again by Samuel Moore and Content Titus. Old fold lines, small paper defects, else very good to near fine. Content Titus (1643-1730) was one of the first three elders of the First Presbyterian Church of Newtown (one of the oldest churches in Queens) and a prominent citizen of this Long Island community. On several occasions Titus was sent to the island of Jamaica to protest a tax forced upon Newtown. Titus lived first in Oyster Bay, then Huntington, and then moved to Newtown in 1672 where he purportedly married Rev. John Moore's daughter, Elizabeth Moore. This colonial New York manuscript document shows Content Titus as purchaser of a portion of land once owned by Rev. John Moore, and shows the four sons of the reverend, his heirs, as recipients of an award of property previously held by their father. The agreement also shows that all five men were to receive equal lot shares. A very nice 17th Century American document pertaining to Newtown [a.k.a. New Town and Newtowne] Long Island, and some of its earlier illustrious citizens. .

Romae: Joannis Jacobi Komarek, 1688. 4to. 39 pp. Giovanni Ciampini (1633-98) studied law and was subsequently appointed "Magister" at the Apostolic Chancery, thus providing him with a secure job (i.e., sinecure) and allowing him to devote himself to scholarship, as for example, here in his studies of papal biographies and the letters from Pius II to Charles II of France. Both works are printed in roman type with large woodcut initials featuring cherubs and each has its title-page printed in black and red. The Examen is divided into two parts, each with its own collation and pagination, with the second part being "Sanctae romanae ecclesiae bibliothecariorum catalogus, iuxta chronologicum ordinem. . . ." Evidence of readership: In the first part of the Examen an early reader has underlined in sepia ink passages or phrases s/he found significant but added no marginalia.

Garcilaso de la Vega, "El Inca":
London. 1688.. London. 1688.. [8],1019,[8]pp. plus frontispiece portrait and ten plates. Folio. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked in vellum at an early date. Some scattered darkening and dust soiling, else a very nice copy, untrimmed. Garcilaso de la Vega's major work, the source from which all later writers on the subject have drawn. It consists of two parts, the first describing the origins, religion, laws, and many other details regarding the Incan empire and policies before the invasion by the Spanish. The second part describes the conquest by the Spanish. The engravings provide a vivid picture of the brutal life of the period in Peruvian life and of the conquest. This is the first English language edition, translated by Paul Rycaut, whose portrait appears as the frontispiece. Garcilaso de la Vega, "El Inca," a distinguished 16th-century mestizo Peruvian and a descendant of the Spanish poet of the same name, was born in Peru and spent his formative years there, living out his later life in Spain. Garcilaso's contemporary record of the early Spanish period in Peru is most valuable, as it is based on eyewitness testimony and personal observation. WING G217. SABIN 98760.

"FONTENELLE, BERNARD LE BOUYER DE"

"First edition of this translation by John Glanvill; two other English translations appeared about the same time, one by Aphra Behn, the other by Sir William Domville. & & ""Fontenelle undertook to set forth to a marquise who questioned him during evening promenades in the garden the different astronomical systems: those of Ptolemy, Copernicus, and Tycho Brahe. He spoke to her of the moon and other worlds -- Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the fixed stars -- and discussed the possibility that they might be inhabited.

SCHOONEBEEK, Adriaan.
Amsterdam, Adriaan Schoonebeek, 1688 - 12mo. [4]f including engraved allegorical frontispiece + 73 + [1 blank + 4]f. 73 engraved plates included in collation. Vignettes on title and first page of text which also has a grotesque initial made up of 2 monks. Contemporary calf, re-hinged. A historical guide to the principal male religious orders compiled and finely illustrated with costume plates by a pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe. Each engraving is a portrait of a member of a different religious order whose habit is carefully shaded to indicate its various colours for the interest of the reader and as an aid for artists. In his preface the compiler points to the lack of literature with precise information on the religious orders and their dress, stating that he has added the arms of each order to his image of the individual member portrayed, where ever he was able to trace them. The last plate represents a specimen dress only marked with shades in order to distinguish between colours. Schoonebeek, a highly accomplished engraver, was a pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe from 1676 to 1679. He gave lessons in etching to Peter the Great during his stay at Amsterdam in 1698, and later accompanied him to Moscow, where he spent his final years teaching a number of pupils.

TITUS, Content; Moore Family of Newtown[e], Long Island, New York
Manuscript Document Signed. One page, edges untrimmed. 12.25" x 8". Newtown, Queens County, Long Island, New York. June 19, 1688. Document Signed by Gorsham Moore, Samuel Moore, Joseph Moore, Content Titus, etc. with their black wax seals. Also signed and affirmed by Lambert Woodhull and Daniell Phillips, clerk. Verso with slightly over ten lines of text docketed by Daniell Phillips, signed again by Samuel Moore and Content Titus. Old fold lines, small paper defects, else very good to near fine. Content Titus (1643-1730) was one of the first three elders of the First Presbyterian Church of Newtown (one of the oldest churches in Queens) and a prominent citizen of this Long Island community. On several occasions Titus was sent to the island of Jamaica to protest a tax forced upon Newtown. Titus lived first in Oyster Bay, then Huntington, and then moved to Newtown in 1672 where he purportedly married Rev. John Moore's daughter, Elizabeth Moore. This colonial New York manuscript document shows Content Titus as purchaser of a portion of land once owned by Rev. John Moore, and shows the four sons of the reverend, his heirs, as recipients of an award of property previously held by their father. The agreement also shows that all five men were to receive equal lot shares. A very nice 17th Century American document pertaining to Newtown [a.k.a. New Town and Newtowne] Long Island, and some of its earlier illustrious citizens. .

"Histoire des Variations des eglises protestantes, ouvrage de controverse religieuse compose par Bossuet contre le Protestantisme. Il y expose l'origine de la Reforme, fait l'histoire de ses diverses confessions, combat ce qu'il considere comme leurs erreurs, et analyse la multitude de leurs professions de foi, toutes differentes ( ). Son ambition est de ruiner la pretention des novateurs de se rattacher aux premiers jours de la religion, ce qu'ils ne faisaient, affirme-t-il, que par l'intermediaire de quelques heresies. Il s'attache ensuite a montrer que leurs dissidences, entrainant l'instabilite, ont pour effet infaillible de rendre toute doctrine incertaine, et de conduire a l'indifference en matiere de dogme, puis a la negation de tous les dogmes chretiens. Bossuet deploya dans cet ouvrage une immense erudition, et un talent superieur comme dialecticien et comme ecrivain; 'c'est le chef-d'oeuvre de la methode parfaite, dit M. Villemain, et de la parole precise et simple, dans l'orateur qui a le plus d'enthousiasme et de genie' " (Imago Mundi). (Tchemerzine-Scheler, I, 859. Brunet I … [Click Below for Full Description]

London - Nathanael Ranew and Jonathan Robinson, 1688 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An important pamphlet documenting the reasons the Dutch William of Orange arrived in England and became its ruler. A very scarce pamplet, last seen at auction in 1981. In November 1687, James II's wife, Mary of Modena, was announced to be pregnant. That month, to gain the favour of English Protestants, William of Orange wrote an open letter to the English people in which he disapproved of James's religious policies. Seeing him as a friend, and often having maintained secret contacts with him for years, many English politicians began to negotiate an armed invasion of England. William at first opposed the prospect of invasion, but most historians now agree that he began to assemble an expeditionary force in April 1688. In June, James's wife, Mary of Modena, bore a son (James Francis Edward Stuart), who displaced William's wife to become first in the line of succession. Public anger also increased because of the trial of seven bishops who had publicly opposed James's religious policies and had petitioned him to reform them. On 30 June 1688 the same day the bishops were acquitted a group of political figures known afterward as the Immortal Seven, sent William a formal invitation. William's intentions to invade were public knowledge by September 1688. With a Dutch army, William landed at Brixham in southwest England on 5 November 1688. He came ashore from the ship Brill, proclaiming the liberties of England and the Protestant religion I will maintain. Condition: Disbound foli … [Click Below for Full Description]
