In many respects, his proposal was similar to Chamberlen?s, and appeared around the same time in 1694. The bank was once again based on the future rental income that could be expected from land. Rather than 100 years income, however, Briscoe only used 20. Unsurprisingly, he was accused by Chamberlen of plagiarism (Horsfield, 1960: 180). Despite the fact that Horsfield describes Briscoe?s major contribution, A Discourse of the Late Funds, as "a lengthy and chaotic work" (1960: 181), it contains some modern theory that puts it ahead of any of Chamberlen?s writings. Briscoe believed that the new investment opportunities offered in the forms of the Million Act, the Lottery Act, and most importantly the Bank of England were drawing money out of trade and into the government?s accounts. In his opinion, his bank would allow trade to flourish and give the government the opportunity to borrow at a lower rate than they were able to from the Bank of England. The rate at which the government was borrowing money, he believed, would lead to the "ruin [of] the trade of the kingdom" (Briscoe, 1694: 3).As with Potter and Chamberlen, Briscoe made the link between an increase in the supply of money and greater economic activity. According to him, the new bills would be "to all intents as useful as money; it will be (as it were) an introducing so many fresh-monied men into the Kingdom with several millions more than was before, for the supply of their majesties" (1694: 7). Motivated by finding a means for the government to borrow at a low rate of interest, he was simultaneously concerned with improving the capital of the land owners: "gentlemen will have an opportunity of improving their estates by building, planting, draining or watering their land" (1694: 8). It is not until we get to Nicholas Barbon that the idea of capital is explored in greater detail, but there is an implied understanding of the link between investment and increased productivity here. Briscoe managed to secure over £100,000 in land subscribed to his bank, but it ultimately failed after 1696 as a consequence of a lack of liquidity in much the same way that Chamberlen?s did (1960: 194)"Antoin Murphy notes that "Briscoe?s proposals involved money creation and debt management. Law was to pursue both these policies in France between 1717 and 1720."

This his only known published work. Termed by some as 'ambitious, it have been described as "one of the most interesting, but now completely forgotten, treatises on natural law to be printed in late-seventeenth-century England. Despite its many qualities, the treatise was published, albeit very handsomely by Richard Chiswell, in a very limited edition... and it simply failed to reach the relevant audience", a circumstance which, no doubt, accounts for its scarcity in the modern antiquarian law market.

      STCN (3 copies); WorldCat (6 copies mixing at least 2 eds.); cf. Knuttel 18367a. First edition of a treaty concluded between the Dutch States General and Abdullah bin Ismail (1694-1757), Sultan of Morocco on and off from 1734 to his death in 1757. The pamphlet is entirely in Dutch but the treaty itself was originally written in Spanish, to be translated into Arabic for posting in all Moroccan ports and published and posted (in Dutch) in lands under Dutch authority. The 23 articles of the treaty itself are followed by a form for the passports that Dutch ships were to carry, a note on the treaty's ratification at Fez, and a translation of a letter (originally in Arabic?) from the Sultan of Morocco to the States General. The treaty was negotiated by Mohamed Lucas, governor of Tétouan, acting for Morocco and Francisco and Louis Butler, granted power of attorney by the States General. With a few wrinkles and small marginal tears or chips, but still in very good condition and with generous margins, preserving the tranchefiles. First edition of an important document of trade relations between the Dutch Republic and Morocco.

It will be given in 2 sections, first the full title and prior owner's notes including citation/points, lastly structure.Title page continues, "With his Reasons for turning Roman Catholick; published by K. James. Found in the Strong Box.Printed in the Year MDCXCIV." Owner notes on loose browned paper, "Port, 12mo, old calf, (London) 1694. Nice copy of this scarce work. The famous portrait of King Charles knelling (sic, kneeling), of which it is said 'he is worshipping his Mistress Nellie Gwynn in a cloud above him, instead of his maker.' " There is ancient penned 1/2 page note top verso first endsheet re authorship (attributes Chas. II) and avoiding confusion of this item with the Basilike of Charles I. Below this are penciled notes re Almack page 82, Wing #E312 and placements. Below title page date in R.N. is script penned '1694'. At top of TOC is very old penned name 'John Francis Gwyn'. Not sure I am reading the middle name correctly.Regarding structure, size is duodecimo, collation is octavo in the main. Spine has 4 ribs, stamped label, date at bottom in standard numerals. The archivist who has seen the piece feels the date indicates reworking as does the marbling of the pastedowns and their facing ensheets. First PD has had ex-libris plate removed and the abrasion is large and goes through the marbled paper.Numbers 320 pages and at the bottom of last page is 2 line errata note. The verso of first marbled endsheet is blank (exc. above refd. noting), second blank endsheet w/ verso showing the scandalous illustration, title page with verso blank then TOC. Page 320 is followed by one endsheet blank verso marbled. The text has one 'flaw' that I noted in scanning through, the last page of TOC is cut partially short at fore-edge, body of text unaffected, dog ear minimal. Text has the customary ripple and a bit of age darkening, very minimal foxing to my eye. Remarkably legible. Text edges have some red stain visible but darkened, top darker. The leather boards and spine are aged and scarred but richly attractive in their age. Hinging seems stout with no internal gap and no notable exterior cracking. The archivist feels any restoration is very old and utilized original materials where possible. Photo will be provided of the book's exterior shortly, Book

        A TRUE ACCOUNT OF THE PROCEEDINGS, SENCE AND ADVICE OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS. AT THE YEARLY MEETINGS OF FAITHFUL FRIENDS AND BRETHREN BEGUN IN LONDON ON THE 28th OF THE 3d MONTH, 1694, AND HELD BY ADJOURNMENT UNTO THE 11th OF THE MONTH FOLLOWING, IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO THE DIVISIONS AND DIFFERENCES AMONG SOME OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS IN AMERICA

      London: R. Levis, 1694.. [4],16pp. Small quarto. Early 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Extremities lightly rubbed. Minor soiling and wear to text. Very good. A major rarity of 17th-century Philadelphia and New Jersey, this pamphlet relates details of the schism amongst the Quakers caused by George Keith. Keith (1639?- 1716) was an early and important convert to Quakerism, but then began an attempt to reform Quaker theology in the early 1690s during an extended sojourn in America. This sparked a famous controversy in Philadelphia, which fueled some of the earliest productions of the press in Philadelphia and New York, and led to the first trial of freedom of the press in America, decades before Zenger. Disowned by the Friends on both sides of the Atlantic, Keith returned to England and entered the Anglican church in 1700, later returning to America as an Anglican missionary. "Whether it was a long-brewing dispute or a short-term conflict is debated, but at the yearly meeting of Quakers in Philadelphia in 1691 a row occurred that caused much acrimony between Keith and his Quaker brethren. William Stockdale, one of the early Quaker settlers, accused Keith of heresy, of preaching two Christs because he overemphasized the two separate natures of the Saviour" - DNB. Tensions and events escalated in 1692 and 1693, fueled by Keith's published attacks, printed by Philadelphia's first printer, William Bradford. Keith and Bradford were then tried for sedition, but the case against them collapsed when the evidence - Bradford's set type of an inflammatory broadside - was dropped by a juror. Keith and Bradford then moved to New York, where the former wrote and the latter printed a summation of the whole business, TRUTH ADVANCED IN THE CORRECTION AND MANY GROSS AND HURTFUL ERRORS, the first book published in New York. In the present work, the author condemns the schism as detrimental to the Quaker faith as a whole, and he urges Keith to do everything in his power to smooth things over. The text includes a missive from the Yearly Meeting at Burlington, New Jersey, addressed to "Our Friends and Brethren in Truth, both in Pennsylvania, East and West-Jarsey, and elsewhere, as there may be occasion, to be read in their Monthly and Quarterly Meetings, as they in the Wisdom of God shall see meet." The letter exonerates Keith from charges leveled against him and is signed in type by thirty-nine members of the Meeting. The present work is of the greatest rarity. We can locate copies at the Huntington Library, Library of Congress, New York Public Library (imperfect), and the British and Bodleian libraries in England. This would appear to be the only copy in private hands. ESTC R12805. WING H656. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 694/80. SABIN 30235.

        A VOYAGE TO THE WORLD OF CARTESIUS. Written originally in French. Translated into English by T. Taylor M.A

      London, Thomas Bennet, 1694.. SECOND ENGLISH EDITION 1694 (first published in 1692, the original French edition Voyage du Monde de Descartes first published in 1690). 8vo, approximately 185 x 115 mm, 7½ x 4½ inches, 16 woodcut images and diagrams in the text, pages: [16], 298, [6], with advert and errata on last prelim leaf, bound in full modern panelled speckled calf, gilt decorated raised bands, richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Author's name written neatly on title page, light browning throughout, small piece missing from 2 lower corners, no loss of text, tiny hole in 1 page, all still legible. A very good copy of a scarce book. Gabriel Daniel (1649 - 1728) born in Rouen was a French Jesuit scholar, author of books on history, philosophy and religion. In this book, called a romance by the translator and sometimes classed as science fiction, he visits the moon and explores the cosmos of rotating vortices hypothesized by Descartes circa 1640, a cosmos recently confirmed by studies of the origins of the solar system, of spiral galaxies, and of accretion disks around black holes. Pere Daniel's efforts are directed to satirising the Cartesian system and theories. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Ruffs in a Landscape

      - Christopher Huet (French, 1694-1759) Ruffs in a Landscape Oil on canvas Canvas size: 20 1/2” x 17 3/8” Literature: Christine E. Jackson, Bird Painting - The Eighteenth Century (Woodbridge, Suffolk, 1994), p. 76 Christopher Huet’s informal and intimate painting places male and female specimens of the species Philomachus pugnax in their natural habitat of marshy wetlands. The bird was first introduced to the English in 1586 when an anonymous writer published an attack upon the large frilly lace ruffs currently the fashion among Elizabethan men and woman. He scornfully likened these extravagant collars to the ruff worn around the neck of the male ruff bird when in breeding plummage. Huet’s charming painting was most probably designed to appeal to members of the French aristocracy among whom he found continued employment. He specialized in the depiction of natural history subjects as well the interior decoration of houses. His skills were such that his name can be found along side that of Watteau in the account books of the Prince de Conde documenting work completed at the family castle in 1741.
