        A Free Discourse against Customary Swearing

      London: Printed by R. R. for Thomas Cockerill, , 1695. And a Dissuasive from Cursing. Octavo (179 x 109 mm). Contemporary black morocco, decorative gilt spine tooled with motifs of hops and flowers, red morocco label, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt panels with corner motifs of acorns and flowers, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplate of Hog of Newliston, probably James Maitland Hog (1799-1858), advocate. Lacking the engraved portrait frontispiece of Boyle, joints rubbed and partially split but sound, label chipped, internally a little dust-marking. An attractive copy with the terminal advertisement leaf. First edition, with an attractive early American provenance, a preliminary blank is inscribed: "Wm. Dummer's Booke, 3: May 1706, pretium 3 s[hillings]". This is the governor of the Province of Massachusetts Bay, William Dummer (1677-1761), after whom Dummer's War is named, a series of battles between New England and the Wabanaki Confederacy (1722-1725). His inscription evokes the short period that he is recorded as having spent in England, working with his extended family's merchant business in London. "Oaths were controversial in seventeenth-century England, for two reasons: one, because of those who took them too seriously, the other due to those who did not take them seriously enough. To deal with the latter first, there was much concern at the time that oaths were being trivialised by their casual use: indeed, Boyle himself had written a treatise on this subject in the late 1640s which was published after his death, his A Free Discourse against Customary Swearing. In it, he gave a series of arguments against such use of oaths in fashionable circles, echoing the views of many at the time that it was because oaths were so serious a matter - religious acts in which God was invoked as a witness - that their abuse was so offensive: 'the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain', in the words of the Ten Commandments" (Michael Hunter, Robert Boyle 1627-1691: Scrupulosity and Science, 2000, p. 65).

        Of the Consolation of Philosophy. In Five Books. Made English and Illustrated with Notes, by the Right Honourable Richard Lord Viscount Preston. London: Printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John ChurchillÉ[et al.],

      London: Printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John ChurchillÉ[et al.], 1695. - BoethiusÕ De Consolatione Philosophiae, which was written in prison shortly before the authorÕs death in 525 A.D. was long considered the last great classic work of ancient literature. It was one of the most popular literary works of the Middle Ages and was translated into many languages. Preston justifies this fourth English translation on the grounds that two seventeenth-century predecessors were too incomplete and imperfect, and that Geoffrey ChaucerÕs early translationÑitself an imitation of Alfred the GreatÕs Anglo-Saxon versionÑwas to incomprehensible to late seventeenth-century readers. Preston intended his translation to bring BoethiusÕ treatise on worldly suffering and the goodness of God within the understanding of ordinary people. He therefore compressed and minimized his notes so not to distract from the text. A life of Boethius and translations into English of early comments about him by Greek and Latin authors are prefixed to the text. Octavo. xxxii, 246, [1] pp., including the errata leaf. Engraved frontisportrait. Contemporary calf, rebacked, with gilt black morocco spine labels, gilt coat-or-arms on front cover Some browning to portrait, and small chip at fore-margin, last few leaves with uneven brown spotting, one leaf with chip at fore-margin, not affecting text. A good copy. First edition of this translation. Wing B3433. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Stockholm/ åhr 1695". Sist efter registret: "Fulländat förste gången anno 1695 den 16 april." Utgiven av Jesper Swedberg och förkortad för en yngre läsekrets. Klemming skriver om denna psalmbok: "En märklig plats i vår hymnologiska litteratur intager den Svedbergska psalmboken af år 1693, hvilken, som bekant, knappast färdigtryckt blef förbjuden och indragen i följd af biskoparnes missnöje. Lika bekant torde icke vara, att sju upplagor trycktes deraf och att dessa samtliga äro typografiska mästerverk, hvilka sannerligen ensamt för denna egenskap hade förtjent ett bättre öde än att multna i Riks-arkivets hvalf eller utskeppas till Amerika". Swedberg sände exemplar av psalmboken till svenska församlingarna i Delaware precis som han senare gjorde med Skarabibeln. Ett exemplar av denna upplaga var den dyraste av de Swedbergska psalmböckerna på Per Hiertas auktion och inköptes för 150 kronor av Göteborgs universitetsbibliotek

        An Act of the Parliament of Scotland for Erecting an East-India Company in that Kingdom.

      Edinburgh: Printed by the Heirs and Successors of Andrew Anderson... and Re-printed at London, for Sam. Manship... and Hugh Newman, , 1695. Folio (307 x 197 mm), pp. [4],8. Sometime overcast sewn, now disbound, preserved in a blue cloth folder, spine lettered gilt. Complete with the initial blank leaf. Stab marks from sewing in the gutter, lightly browned throughout; a very good copy. First London edition of this important act "for a Company trading to Africa and the Indies", the document creating the Company of Scotland, later to become the Darien Company. "The originator of this disastrous enterprise was William Paterson, the founder of the Bank of England... Without divulging the details of his scheme, he succeeded in exciting the speculative interest of his countrymen, and a bill to establish the new company was carried through the Scotch Parliament and received the sanction of the Lord High Commissioner on 26th June 1695. The 'Company of Scotland trading to Africa and the Indies,' was authorised to seize unoccupied territories in Asia, Africa, and America, to plant colonies, construct forts, wage war and conclude treaties; while the king was pledged to obtain reparation from any foreign state which molested the company. The company received a monopoly of the trade with Asia, Africa, and America for thirty-one years, and for twenty-one years their imports, except sugar and tobacco, were to be free of all duties. Scotchmen hastened to invest their scanty savings in the new venture, and £220,000 was actually contributed towards a nominal capital of £400,000." (Palgrave). English opposition to the company and Scottish determination to establish a colony at Darien, (with some 1200 colonists including Paterson and his wife departing Leith for Darien in 1698), resulted in the collapse of the company in 1700, ultimately leading to the Act of Union of 1707 and the payment by England to Scotland of £398,000 (the Equivalent) in compensation for the losses.

        Aurorens, Königlicher Princeßin aus Creta, Staats- und Liebes-Geschichte, Der galanten Welt zu vergönnter Gemüths-Ergötzung vorgestellet von Talandern (Pseud.). 1 Bl., 860 S. Mit gestoch. Frontispiz. Pappbd d. Z. (berieben, Gelenke beschabt) mit Rückenschild.

      Leipzig, Johann Ludwig Gleditsch und M. G. Weidmanns sel. Erben, 1695. - Erste Ausgabe des galanten Romans. "Talander is of importance for the history of the novel for two reasons: first, because he omits the scholarly element; and second, because, unlike Weise, he gives not just a series of andventures set forth one after another but one continuouos action" (Faber du Faur). Bohse (1661-1742), Hofmeister, Verfasser von Briefstellern, Jura-Professor und ab 1708 Lehrer an der Ritterakademie in Liegnitz, gilt als einer der ersten Autoren, die, mindestens für eine gewisse Zeit – als Berufsschriftsteller lebten. Er gehörte neben Christian Friedrich Hunold zu jenen Autoren, die im späten 17. Jahrhundert aus dem Handlungsmuster des höfisch-historischen Romans die neue Gattung des "galanten" Romans schufen. Im Gegensatz zum barocken heroischen Roman, wie etwa bei Lohenstein, verschiebt sich bei Bohse der Akzent vom Männlich-Heroischen auf das Moment des Weiblichen. In einer Zeit der Umorientierung schrieb er für ein informationsbedürftiges adliges Publikum und für eine aufstiegswillige und nach Belehrung suchende bürgerliche Leserschaft. – Wenig gebräunt, gutes Exemplar.

        Le marchand sincere ou traite general des drogues simples et composes.

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Folio (40 cm, 15.75"). Frontis., [12], 304 (i.e., 332), 108, 116, [38], 16 pp.; 5 plts., illus.. 1695 Second and => for the first time self-published edition of this groundbreaking, best-selling guide to botanically derived medicines, written by the chief pharmacist to Louis XIV. Highly influential in its time, Pomet's materia medica covers botanical, zoological, and mineral sources and is illustrated in this edition with => almost 200 copper-engraved, in-text images including many of the plants described along with subjects such as coral, ostriches, and fish, not to mention exotica like mummies, unicorns, and some extremely implausibly depicted rhinoceroses and whales. Also present are images of harvesting and processing sugar cane, indigo, and tobacco (all depicting black workers). In addition, the final addendum, "Remarques tres-curieuses sur plusieurs vegetaux, animaux, mineraux, & autres, que j'ai oublié d'inserer dans la premiere impression, ou que j'ai découvert du depuis," supplies information on mercury, cinnabar, antimony, etc., along with five tipped-in plates showing mechoacan, Virginia snakeroot, indigo, drakena, and an assortment of bezoars. The => Americana content is noteworthy, with discussion of cacao, chocolate, tobacco, jalap, and so on. Tea and coffee are present as well. This second edition was retitled by Pomet from the original Histoire générale des drogues, and is both less widely held and less frequently described in bibliographies (WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 locate only seven U.S. institutional holdings). It opens with a frontispiece portrait of the author, done by A. le Clerc the Younger, facing a title-page vignette by I. Crespy; sections open with decorative headpieces and capitals and many close with tailpieces. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt extra and with gilt-stamped leather title-label; ; binding rubbed and scuffed with leather pitted, front joint cracked but holding, spine refurbished with untooled leather replacing that lost in bottom compartment. First few leaves with edges darkened and slightly ragged; dedication and first leaf of preface with inkstains in upper margins; early portion with light waterstaining in upper margins. Several leaves with tears from margins, some extending into text without loss; a few leaves with small rectangular portion of lower inner margins cut away and two with corners torn away, one with loss of a few words and the other wish loss of about ten; two leaves each with a tiny burn hole affecting one letter. One leaf torn across, tear going through two images without loss; one leaf with small ink smears entering into an image frame (for "De la Colle de Poisson"), not approaching the images themselves. Clearly a much-read, pored-over example of this great 17th-century treatise, and also one => fit for much more enjoyment and "action.

VD17 23:641786Y; HKJL II, 407. - Sehr seltenes heraldisches "Lehrspiel" (über KVK für uns nur 4 Expl. nachweisbar, davon 2 ohne die Kupfer). Gegenüber der 1659 in Lyon erschienenen Originalausgabe sind erhebliche Änderungen vorgenommen worden. So wurden im deutschen Sprachraum mehr oder weniger unbekannte Adelshäuser durch einheimische ersetzt. Deshalb wird auf dem Titel auch darauf verwiesen, dass das Buch lediglich der Idee des eigentlichen Autors Claude Oronce Finé de Brianville (1608-1674) folge. Diese "Idee" ist recht einfach. Es gibt 52 Tafeln (Karten), die alle das Wappen eines Herrscherhauses zeigen. Dieses wird zusätzlich auf der Spielkarte heraldisch korrekt beschrieben. In der linken oberen Ecken des Blattes ist der Farbwert der Karte angebracht. Zu jeder Karte gibt es im Buch ein erläuterndes Kapitel zum Wappen selbst sowie zur Geographie und Geschichte der jeweiligen Herrschaften. Jedes Kapitel ist um die Zuordnung zu erleichtern in der Überschrift ebenfalls mit dem Farbwert gekennzeichnet. Eine interessante Interpretation der Kupfer liefert Hans Legband, der sie in Beziehung zur Ständeordnung des Deutschen Reichs setzt und dabei eine italienische Ausgabe ausführlich beschreibt (Zu den Quaternionen der Reichsverfassung. S. 495ff. In: Archiv für Kulturgeschichte, Bd. 3 (1905) - Online abrufbar). Da in der ersten französischen Auflage einige Adelige moniert hatten, dass ihre Wappen dem Kartenwert "Bube" bzw. "Valet" zugeordnet worden waren, änderte der Autor die Bezeichnung in der zweiten Auflage in "Chevalier". Dies ist in der deutschen Ausgabe übernommen worden ("Cavalier"). - Im Gegensatz zu den anderen für uns nachweisbaren und unkompletten Exemplaren fehlen hier nicht die Kupfertafeln, sondern das gestochene Frontispiz, 3 Bl. Titelei u. die Textseiten 1/2. Von diesem Mangel abgesehen, nur gering gebräuntes, gutes Exemplar.

        Partie de la Nouvelle France

      Paris, 1695. Engraved map. An important French mapping of Canada during King William's War and the "first printed information, however tenuous, on the geography of the region to the north and west of Lake Superior" (Kershaw). This important map of Canada by the French cartographer Jaillot, published in the midst of King William's War, focuses on the French possessions, and identifies the Hudson's Bay Company forts taken by the French: Fort Nelson, Moose River, Rupert House, and Albany Fort. Importantly, the map "offers the first printed information, however tenuous, on the geography of the region to the north and west of Lake Superior, relating in fact to present day Lake Winnipeg ... [Jaillot] has used the correct English version for the shape of Hudson Bay, and marks Port Nelson in roughly the correct location. He shows two large but unnamed lakes towards the source of the Nelson River which can be interpreted as Lake Winnipeg, and he gives a creditable version of Lake Nipigon ... The river to the south of Port Nelson is the first indication of the Hayes River system, and the relationship between the Ottawa River and Lakes Nipissing, Timiskaming and Abitibi is clarified for the first time. Similarly, the canoe route via the Saguenay River, Lac St. Jean and Lac Timagaming to James Bay is shown clearly on a printed map for the first time" (Kershaw, p. 158). This is the second state of the map, with the 1685 date altered to 1695 in the scale of miles cartouche.

        Amerique Septentrionale divisée en ses Principales Parties, ou sont distingués les uns des autres les Estats suivant qu;ils appartiennent presentemet aux François, Castillans, Anglois, Suedois, Danois, Hollandois

      Paris, 1695. Copper-engraved by Cordier, period hand-colouring in outline. Beautifully engraved map of North America, here in the rare first state, with California as an island. Although similarly titled to Jaillot's earlier map of 1674, this map is on a slightly smaller scale. Like Jaillot's earlier map, however, it is beautifully engraved and based on the mappings by Sanson. "The attractive title cartouche engraved by C. Simmoneau is adorned with two tropical birds" (Burden). Although Burden cites the first issue as having no date in the top right cartouche enclosing the scale of miles, close inspection reveals the date to have been abraided off. On the present copy, which includes a contemporary manuscript dating of 1695 in the title cartouche, the date "16 - -" appears in the upper right cartouche, with the terminal digits abraided off. Subsequent issues would add a title below Jaillot's name and amend the mapping of the region to reflect changing boundaries and the creation of colonies. The map would be reissued with such changes until the end of the 18th century. The first and early issues, however, are scarce.

        Le marchand sincere ou traite general des drogues simples et composes.

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Folio (40 cm, 15.75"). Frontis., [12], 304 (i.e., 332), 108, 116, [38], 16 pp.; 5 plts., illus.. 1695 Second and => for the first time self-published edition of this groundbreaking, best-selling guide to botanically derived medicines, written by the chief pharmacist to Louis XIV. Highly influential in its time, Pomet's materia medica covers botanical, zoological, and mineral sources and is illustrated in this edition with => almost 200 copper-engraved, in-text images including many of the plants described along with subjects such as coral, ostriches, and fish, not to mention exotica like mummies, unicorns, and some extremely implausibly depicted rhinoceroses and whales. Also present are images of harvesting and processing sugar cane, indigo, and tobacco (all depicting black workers). In addition, the final addendum, "Remarques tres-curieuses sur plusieurs vegetaux, animaux, mineraux, & autres, que j'ai oublié d'inserer dans la premiere impression, ou que j'ai découvert du depuis," supplies information on mercury, cinnabar, antimony, etc., along with five tipped-in plates showing mechoacan, Virginia snakeroot, indigo, drakena, and an assortment of bezoars. The => Americana content is noteworthy, with discussion of cacao, chocolate, tobacco, jalap, and so on. Tea and coffee are present as well. This second edition was retitled by Pomet from the original Histoire générale des drogues, and is both less widely held and less frequently described in bibliographies (WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 locate only seven U.S. institutional holdings). It opens with a frontispiece portrait of the author, done by A. le Clerc the Younger, facing a title-page vignette by I. Crespy; sections open with decorative headpieces and capitals and many close with tailpieces. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt extra and with gilt-stamped leather title-label; ; binding rubbed and scuffed with leather pitted, front joint cracked but holding, spine refurbished with untooled leather replacing that lost in bottom compartment. First few leaves with edges darkened and slightly ragged; dedication and first leaf of preface with inkstains in upper margins; early portion with light waterstaining in upper margins. Several leaves with tears from margins, some extending into text without loss; a few leaves with small rectangular portion of lower inner margins cut away and two with corners torn away, one with loss of a few words and the other wish loss of about ten; two leaves each with a tiny burn hole affecting one letter. One leaf torn across, tear going through two images without loss; one leaf with small ink smears entering into an image frame (for "De la Colle de Poisson"), not approaching the images themselves. Clearly a much-read, pored-over example of this great 17th-century treatise, and also one => fit for much more enjoyment and "action.

        Canada Orientale nell' America Settentrionale descritta

      Venice: V.M. Coronelli, 1695. Copper-engraved map. Decorative 17th century mapping of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, a Venetian scholar and Minorite Friar, became one of the most celebrated map and globe makers of his era. Throughout his industrious life he produced more than one-hundred terrestrial and celestial globes, several hundred maps, and a wealth of cartographic publications. In 1683, he completed the Marly Globes for Louis XIV, the largest and most magnificent globes ever made. In 1684 he founded the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, the first geographical society, and was appointed Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. He published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically. This fine map of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with parts of Labrador and Nova Scotia, appeared in the 1692-94 Corso Geografico and in the second edition of Atlante Veneto 1695-1697. The map closely follows Coronelli and Nolin's 1689 mapping of Canada and the American coast, though is more focussed on the Newfoundland and Gulf of St. Lawrence region. Derived from manuscript and printed sources, the map is remarkably accurate for its time. As with many of Coronelli's charts, elaborate cartouches provide decorative touches. Text concerning the Grand Banks appears at the bottom of the map, along with a note off the northeastern shore of Newfoundland concerning Cabot's discoveries.

        [Giuseppe Tortoriti] Joseph Tortoriti, faisant le personage de Scaramouche

      Augsburg: Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff, 1695. Engraving with superb early colour and rich gold highlights. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 5/8 x 6 7/8 inches. This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the celebrated Italian comic actor Guiseppe Tortoriti, in the character of Scaramouche Giuseppe Tortoriti, shown as Scaramouche, was usually Pasqariel, and was known by the latter name. He was one of the leading commedia dell'arte performers when Louis XIV closed the theatre in Paris in 1697 because of a supposed insult to Mme. Maintenon. Louis selected Tortoriti to form a new company, which was allowed to perform in France but not within 30 leagues of Paris. Tortoriti's troupe played mainly around Toulouse. Italian troupes did not perform in Paris again until after Louis' death. This bold print is from a colourful series of costume prints engraved and published by Jeremias Wolff at the beginning of the 18th century. The series depicts prancing figures in flamboyant theatrical costumes, and is a superb example of early costume prints. Costume and trade prints, such as this, became extremely popular in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century and continued to serve as a source of inspiration until the decadent days of the Art Deco movement in the 1920's. This magnificent series depicts the costumes of ballet dancers, and opera singers, as well as the vibrant apparel of a jester at a masque ball. As is typical of this genre of print, the figures are pictured in front of an architectural or pastoral background and richly coloured in thick opaque colour with vibrant gold highlights. The series was executed and produced by the prolific German publisher Jeremias Wolff. Wolff came from a family of engravers and became extremely successful, both as an engraver and as a publisher and printseller. He was one of the most prolific publishers and engravers in Augsburg and is responsible for some of the finest engravings to come out of the city. In addition to a number of other costume books and portraits, he was a successful map publisher and it is for his skill as a cartographic engraver that he is perhaps best known.

        A New Map of the English Empire in America Viz Virginia Maryland Carolina Pennsylvania New York New Jersey New England by Rob: Morden

      London: "Sold by Robt. Morden at the Atlas in Cornhill./ And by Christopher Brown at ye Globe/ near the Westend of St. Pauls/ Church: London", 1695. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with original outline colour. Paper toned and margins somewhat soiled otherwise in very good condition. A rare and important map of the American colonies, in the scarce first state. This is in effect a propaganda map, compiled during the War of the League of Augsburg, or King William's War (1689-97). Morden shows the English American colonies thrusting westward, at the expense of the rival French claims. In addition to the Midwest, much of Canada is shown as English. The English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on French sources, including the maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). Morden still preserves Lederer's configuration (1672) in his depiction of the interior of the Southeast. At lower right is a large inset map of the North Atlantic, the vital life line between Britain and its American empire. Just above is the title piece crowned by the Royal Arms, and an inset map of Boston Harbor based on Thomas Pound's A New Mapp of New England from Cape Codd to Cape Sables (1691).

        Document signed by Col. Dudley Bradstreet, son of poet Anne Bradstreet, who was accused as a witch and murderer. Ironically, as Justice of the Peace, he signed almost 50 arrest warrants for those accused of witchcraft - also signed by Minister Joseph Moody, subject of Hawthorne's "The Minister's Black Veil."

      Essex County, Massachusetts, March 28, 1695. 12.75" x 16.5". "Manuscript Document Signed ""Dudley Bradstreet Justice of peace,"" 1 page, 12.75"" x 16.5"". March 28, 1695. Also signed ""Jos. Moody Regr.,"" ""Samuel Ingolls Junr,"" ""Joseph Woodbridge,"" and ""John Law Tertius."" On watermarked laid paper. Holes and gaps at folds do not materially affect the appearance or legibility of the deed. Toned folds do not affect the darkly penned document. Folds expertly mended on verso. Very good condition.Col. Dudley Bradstreet (1647-1706), as Justice of the Peace, acknowledges ""this instrument to be his Act & Deed"" in an Autograph Endorsement Signed on March 28, 1695, nine months after Samuel Ingalls, Jr. sold Cocks-Hall, a 6 mile by 4 mile tract of land in Essex County, Massachusetts, to Serjeant Stephen Jaques. Joseph Moody (1700-1753), Registrar, signs an Autograph Endorsement Signed on May 30, 1727, attesting that the deed here offered was ""Recorded with the Records of Deeds &c for the County of York ... Compared by Jos. Moody Regr."" Moody was York?s registrar of deeds, county clerk, and judge. He later became minister of the Second Church of York. Moody was the veiled Puritan minister in Nathaniel Hawthorne?s fictional short story The Minister's Black Veil. He preached with a handkerchief over his face and kept a diary in coded Latin. Joseph Woodbridge (1657-1726) and John Law signed as witnesses. Law may be John Law (1635-1707) of Acton, Mass., just 35 miles southwest of Ipswich.BackgroundDudley Bradstreet was a son of Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672), the first woman to be recognized as an accomplished New World poet. He was an attorney, a Colonel in the militia, schoolteacher, and served as a selectman and town clerk in Andover, Mass. Though he opposed the entire witchcraft delusion, he found himself in the unenviable position of Justice of the Peace during the hysteria. In the eight weeks from July 15 to September 6, 1692, Col. Bradstreet granted out arrest warrants against, and committed, some 30 people to prison for supposed witchcrafts.On September 7, 1692, Rev. Thomas Barnard called a meeting of a portion of his congregation in Andover. After a short prayer, Rev. Barnard launched into a sermon describing the evils of witchcraft. Apparently 18 women and girls present were blindfolded and had their hands laid upon several children who were said to be afflicted by these women (the ""touch"" test). The men present encouraged the confused and upset women to confess they were witches as a way to eternal life. They were then seized by a warrant from Dudley Bradstreet and taken to Salem. Bradstreet then refused to grant any warrants. Not long afterwards, both he and his wife Ann were themselves, accused of witchcraft, with the ""afflicted"" claiming that they had killed at least nine people.Bradstreet and his wife fled but he later returned to Andover and his name appears first on the petition presented to the Superior Court of Judicature at Salem at its opening session on January 3, 1693. It was signed not only by Bradstreet, but also by Rev. Thomas Barnard, 39 other men, and 12 women. The petition affirmed the innocence of the women. Col. Bradstreet's brother, John Bradstreet, had met a few of the ""afflcted"" girls in the street when a dog ran out, barked at him then ran away. Immediately, the girls accused John Bradstreet of having afflicted the dog. John didn't wait for the inevitable complaint and fled to New York on the first available ship. The dog was tried, found guilty, and dog was hanged as a witch.The Land DeedThe land deed here offered, in part: ""To all People to whom these Presents shall come I Samuel Ingolls Junr of Ipswich in the County of Essex in the Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England America send Greeting Know ye that the sd Samuel Ingolls Junr for divers good Causes & Considerations me thereunto Moving but especially for & in Consideration of a valuable Sum in Hand paid unto me ye sd Samuel Ingolls Jun by Serjnt Stephen Jacques of Newbury in ye County aforesd the Receipt of all & every part thereof I do own my self to have received to my full satisfaction & content & do thereby for my self my heyrs Execrs & Administs acquitt exonerate & discharg the sd Serjnt Stephen Jaques his heyrs Execrs and Administs by these Present Have given granted bargained & sold enscoffed and confirmed and Do by these Presents fully freely clearly and absolutely give grant bargain and sell enscoffed & confirm unto the sd Serj Stephen Jaques two hundred Acres of Land being part of a Tract which my self and divers others as joynt Purchasers purchased of Mr Harlackenden Symonds of Ipswich in the County aforesd which sd Tract of Land is six Miles in length & four Miles in Breadth known by the Name of Cocks Hall in the County of York=shire in the Province of Maine...""...two hundred Acres of Land herein mentioned belonging as namely the Trees ,Woods, under woods standing or lying upon the sd Land whatsoever or wheresoever it shall be, against all Manner of Persons whatsoever having claiming or pretending to have any just or lawful Right or Title or Interest unto the sd bargained Premisses or any Part or Parcel thereof To have and to hold the sd bargained Premisses & every Part & Parcel thereof as aforementioned together with all Meadows Swamps Waters & Water Courses Mines or Mineralls in or upon sd Land To him the sd Serjnt Stephen Jaques his Heirs Execrs Adminisrs & Assigns for ever..."""
