[Plunkett, Thomas]
[S.l: s.n], Re-printed in the Year, 1689. First separate edition (?). 10, [2, blank] pp. A4-B2. 1 vols. Sm. 4to. William of Orange's Infantry Manual. The text of William III's drill manual for infantry was also included in Plunkett's THE CHARACTER OF A GOOD COMMANDER (L., William Marshall, 1689), with a separate t.p. and pagination (12pp.). This edition, however, would appear to be a different setting of the text (in 10pp); and is possibly the first to be issued separately, as well, as it isn't clear whether the 12pp. setting was ever intended to be issued separately. In either case, it is very rare: only three copies only are located by ESTC (the Folger, NLS and St Andrews). Wing N483B; ESTC R230744. Disbound, sewing perished, taped at spines with paper adhesive.

First edition of a work central to the political theory of the Glorious Revolution, rebutting the Royalist claim that the King alone might dispense with laws as he saw fit, and propounding that only both King and Parliament jointly may do so. Modern blind-tooled goatskin, definite browning, but a sound copy. Printed for Timothy Goodwin . . . in Fleet-street, London, 1689.

DE BRITAINE, William
London: Printed by J. Rawlins, for R. Sare, 1689. 12mo, contemporary full calf, blind-ruled. [iv], 359, [1 (ads)] pp. Covers thoroughly rubbed, tears to three leaves (with partial loss of a few letters at E12 & I6), but generally clean and sturdy. Fifth Edition (the first in 1680). One would not expect a book that passed through at least thirteen editions between 1680 and 1730, that was first printed in America at Dedham, Massachusetts, in 1806, and that was reprinted as recently as 1897, to have lapsed into utter oblivion. But, while the suave epigrams of Marcus Aurelius and Balthasar Gracian y Morales seem never to go out of print, the homely maxims and anecdotes of William De Britaine are forgotten. The author is overlooked by DNB, EB, and all other general biographical compendia; while his book is an outcast from NCBEL, Lowndes, etc. Perhaps the cause is the general mediocrity of his philosophy; perhaps it is the uncertainty as to whether to list him under 'D' or 'B'(we follow BMC); or perhaps the thought police have condemned him for including such sallies as the following: "A Woman is a Book, and often found / To prove, far better in the Sheets than Bound."

Johnson, Samuel
London: For J. Watts at the Angel in St. Pauls Churchyard, 1689. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Presume 1st. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Balance of title, "That Resistance may be Used, in case our Religion and Rights should be Invaded." It seems possible that the title page is missing. Wing asserts that that item should give "for J. Watts 1689," and this information appears last page. The prior owner has penned Johnson's name, Wing #J836 , and the institutional placements, small, in pencil at the upper margin of page one. The item, a pamphlet placed in newish hardcovers measuring 8 x 6 3/8", begins at page 1 with title and text, concluding at page 11, verso blank. Two issues re text, the corner of the first page has a penned O circled upper corner, about postage stamp size. Also the number at the last pages top has been cropped, perhaps as made, perhaps in restoration. Page seems a bit off center in its original making. The text is legible but small print and wavy, scars and corrected dog ears are present. Much Latin is used. Boards are gray/black unbumped, not quite newish but handsome. As I did the research for these Johnson pieces I came upon a wonderful story where he spoke of the martyrdom of Chas. I. He spoke, scandalizing the courtiers by commenting at Whitehall that if Kings were accountable only to God, the rump Parliament did right in sending Charles I to him..

Hunton, Philip
London: Richard Baldwin, 1689. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. 3rd Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The owners notes and my observation agree with Wing number H3783. This 73 page pamphlet has been placed inside hard red cloth boards, with a gilt lettered black spine label. The boards measure 8'' X 6 1/2'', The text measures 7 3/4'' X 6'' fore-edge to gutter. Collation is primarily quarto. After the restored endsheet (no preliminary sheets appear) is the title page. There is a small penned circled D at the upper right corner. Opposite this in the gutter margin is pencilled "edn., Wing number and placements." Verso title blank, followed by a 2 page TOC. Page 1 through 73 appear next followed by another blank beige replacement endsheet. The text has minimal foxing and two characteristics worth noting. The paper is a bit thinner then customary for the era so the read-thru is more pronounced. Additionally, the top edge is in places 3/8 of an inch to a scant 1/8 of an inch from the top edge of the sheets. Hunton's name does not appear in the text, authorship is given as ''Done by an earnest desirer of his country's peace.'' Printing ''London: printed for, and sold by Richard Baldwin in the old Baily. MDCLXXXIX.'' The grade above maybe thought of as a compromise between the newish boards and the aged text..

Atkyns was Russell's legal advisor.

[Hennepin, Louis]:
[Nuremberg. 1689].. Engraved map, 7 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches. Near fine. Matted and laid into a folding cloth box. The extremely rare German edition of Father Louis Hennepin's landmark map of North America, from his DESCRIPTION DE LA LOUISIANE.... This version of the map was issued with the 1689 Nuremberg edition of Hennepin's work, and the cartouche translated from French into Latin. As in the original, the German map shows the significant new details of the upper headwaters of the Mississippi. By removing the extraneous European continent, the German map focuses solely on North America and even tends to magnify the Great Lakes region. Hennepin's map was the first to use the name Louisiana, and the Atlantic Ocean is called "Mare Canadense." "[It shows] for the first time La Louisiane, Sault de St. Antoine de Padou (on the site of present-day Minneapolis), and Lac de Pleurs [Lake of Tears], present Lake Pepin. A faint dotted line indicating the surmised course of the lower Mississippi River is approximately located" - Schwartz & Ehrenberg. This line is of particular note. As Wheat points out, La Salle and later French cartographers recorded the course of the river as progressing further west, making Hennepin's map remarkably accurate in this regard for its time. As a significant version of one of the best cartographical depictions to that date of the Great Lakes region and the upper Mississippi, it is surprising that this German edition of Hennepin's map has been overlooked by most carto-bibliographers. "An important cartographic stepping stone...[presenting] … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dialogues appeared anonymously between "1688 and 1691 are pasquinades satirical dialogues between two characters arlequinesques Pasquin and Marsorio. Pasquin is leading the subject, his sidekick asking questions. The whole is treated with due lightness, easily read, the humor and satire are often irresistible. These dialogues were published separately, and each contain a title page, with a publisher often fanciful name and a different city, it goes without saying that there is only one editor really. It was published 19 dialogues, it is naturally very rare to see together. The subjects of each dialogue are different and are, as the title indicates, the main business of the time, and the situation of European countries. Only the first dialogue of the book: the bedroom Innocent XI accounts, do not put in a situation both regular characters, because it is a dialogue between the Pope and Saint-Pierre, the dialogue is nevertheless the fifth pasquinades dialogue.
