        Enslaved Native Americans in Massachusetts Bay Colony: 1695-6 document recording 3 Native Americans sentenced to bond slavery and another "sentenced to be sold" for non payment of fines (Barnstable, Massachusetts )

      Barnstable, Massachusetts:. 1695 -6.. Very good condition. A remarkable early Old Colony (Massachusetts) legal document which records the sentencing to bond slavery of three Native Americans, Ralph Sands, and John & Robin Sopitt, to English settlers, for terms of two years each (another slavery record is on the verso). These Native Americans were charged with "takeing of a Chest with goods cast on shoar on Sandwich Beach belonging to Nathaniel Orvis who was drowned...". They appeared before Barnabas Lothrop, John Thacher, and John Gorham, justices of Barnstable County, were convicted and fined, and being unable to pay their fines, were ordered to serve terms of two full years to the individuals who "paid down" the amounts owed. & & The individuals who paid these amounts are named as Joseph (Housedy or Halsey?) who paid the fine and obtained Robin Sopitt; Joseph Bartlett who paid the fine and obtained John Sopitt, and Edmond Freeman and Ebenezer (Ebinge?) who jointly paid the fine and obtained Ralph Sands. Written in another hand below this record, is "a [true] coppy --- Barnabas Lothrop Justis of peiz 13th of fe---ary 1696". Below this another note in pencil, "Slavery in 1695-6 Kg. Wm 3rd". This amounted to imposed enslavement of Native Americans, a practice rarely recognized in the official version of the colonial history of the North. In fact, slavery was legal in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and Governor John Winthrop helped craft the laws known as the "Massachusetts Body of Liberties" (1641), which made this enslavement possible. The following quote is from item 91, "Liberties of Forreiners and Strangers": "There shall never be any bond slaverie, villinage or Captivitie amongst us unles it be lawfull Captives taken in just warres, and such strangers as willingly selle themselves or are sold to us."& & On the verso is another record of a Native American being sentenced to be "sold" for having stolen a lace "handkercher", according to the local Justice of the Peace, Stephen Skiffe: & "This ninth day of July 1695. Stephen Wampom, Indian was brought before me Stephen Skiffe Esq. Just of the peace, & there was convicted by his own confession, of stealing a lace handkercher from Joseph Jenkins, value ten shillings, and not having wherewithall to make satisfaction is sentenced to be sold to any of there (sic) majesties subjects for one year from the day of the date hereof. Witness Stephen Skiffe."& & 7 1/4 x 6 3/4", handwritten in ink. Blind stamp from the library which deaccessioned the item; a few traces of paper to which this document was laid down, at verso.

        Relation de Voyage Mysterieux de L'Isle de la Vertu, ? Oronte

      Paris,: Christophe Remy,, 1695.. Small octavo; a very good copy in contemporary calf, slightly worn. Second edition of this rare spiritual romance. First published in Rouen in 1684, this educational novel is written as an allegorical voyage to the imaginary island of "Virtue" on the River Orontes, the chief Syrian river, and the standard route to Egypt since antiquity. The island proves to be a peaceful religious utopia, presented as a model for the reader. Its tenets are suggested by the work's preface, the poem "Epistre ? Damon", that is, Damon of Syracuse, who selflessly pledged his life to Dionysus of Syracuse in return for the freedom of his friend.This work has long been attributed to Juan de Palafox y Mendoza (1600-1659), an important figure in Spanish Catholicism. He spent much of his life as envoy and bishop to Mexico, where his reluctance to convert by any means other than persuasion gained him the title "Protector to the Indians". He returned to Spain after a long-running dispute with the Jesuits, whose privileges he sought to temper. His writings, consisting largely of ascetic, pastoral, and historical treatises, were published in Madrid in the eighteenth century, not long after he narrowly missed out on canonisation.Negley has a Paris 1696 edition.

        Virginiae Partis Australis, et Floridae Partis Orientalis, Interjacentinumq[ue] Regionum Nova Discriptio

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1695. Circa 1695. Double-page hand-colored map. Map is approximately 19" x 15"; the sheet is approximately 24" x 20.5". This map is a re-issue of Jan Jansson's map of southern Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, which was first printed in 1621. Jansson's map was, in turn, a very close copy of Willem Blaeu's identically named map, which was published in 1620.

        Histoire de L'edit de Nantes

      ONT>In Three Volumes, 1695 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce and earlyset accounting the history of the the Edict of Nantes, issued by Henry IV of France, and the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Written in French. In the Edict, Henry aimed primarily to promote civil unity. The Edict separated civil from religious unity, treated some Protestants for the first time as more than mere schismatics and heretics, and opened a path for secularism and tolerance. In offering general freedom of conscience to individuals, the Edict offered many specific concessions to the Protestants, such as amnesty and the reinstatement of their civil rights, including the right to work in any field or for the State and to bring grievances directly to the king. It marks the end of the religious wars that had afflicted France during the second half of the 16th century. Volume one features a beautifully engraved plate to the endpaper. With particular focuson theRevocation of the Edict of Nantes, which was issued by Louis XIV of France in October 1685. By the Edict of Fontainebleau, Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes and ordered the destruction of Huguenot churches, as well as the closing of Protestant schools. This policy made official the persecution already enforced since the dragonnades created in 1681 by the king in order to intimidate Huguenots into converting to Catholicism. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed with heavy wear to extremities. All boards are detached but present, aside from volume ones front board. Internally, all are generally firmly bound, with some light off-setting and spotting. Armorial bookplate andlabelto the front pastedown of two volumes. Some neat ink annotated notes throughout each volume. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

EARLY ISSUE OF SIR RICHARD BLACKMORE’S EPIC POEM OF THE ARTHURIAN LEGEND. Blackmore was the personal physician to both William III and to Queen Anne, but these important duties did not stop him from being a prolific and popular writer. The author says this work, arguably his best, was written “for the greatest part in coffee-houses” during what free time and precious moments of leisure his career permitted him. The poem begins with Arthur returning to England to claim his throne after the Saxon overthrow of Uther. It tells of Lucifer’s attempt to defeat Arthur’s purpose and serves like an analysis of the development of Christianity in Northern Europe. The final telling of the combat between Tollo and Arthur for the hand of Ethelina, and thus the control of the Kingdom is highly climactic. The work found a great admirer in Dr. Johnson who replied to John Dennis’ biting criticism of it with by stating that Dennis was "more tedious and disgusting than the work he condemns." Johnson would later write a “Life of Blackmore”. The work won the equal admiration of John Locke. Blackmore found a large audience with this poem, enough so that the second and third editions were all done within this same year. See DNB

Ad Jus Feudale Utrumque Germanicum et Longobardicum Introductio seu Institutiones ex Genuinis Principiis Succincte Concinnatae, Et ad Fori Feudalis Hodierni Usum Directa. Strassburg: Sumptibus Jo. Friderici Spoor, 1695. [xvi], 108, [2] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 3-1/2). Contemporary (or near-contemporary) three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece. Wear to spine ends, corners bumped and lightly worn. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light browning, occasional light foxing. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. Derived in part from Roman models but otherwise based on Germanic law, the Lombard Laws were introduced by the Lombard kings after their conquest of Italy in 568CE. It was a successful system that became more sophisticated during the following decades, especially after the union of the Lombards with the Frankish kingdom. This body of law was a decisive influence in Italian law and legal study into the seventeenth century and did not wholly disappear until the introduction of French-based codes in the nineteenth century. Schilter, a Ratskonsulent in Frankfurt and professor of law at the University of Strassburg, was a sophisticated jurist and a pioneering scholar of comparative law and legal history. The ground-breaking Ad Jus Feudale was one of the first modern studies of its kind. A standard work, it went through nine editions by 1750. OCLC locates 1 copy of the 1695 edition in a North American library (Harvard Law School). Stintzing/Landesberg, Geschichte der Deutschen Rechtswissenschaft III:1, n. 35.

Wing L2741. Yolton 63. Pforzheimer 599 and PMM 164 (for first edition). & Third Edition of the "most popular and enduring of all Locke's writings (Yolton)," a line-by-line reprint of the Second Edition (1694) with only minor adjustments and the errata corrected, but still with many misprints. First published in 1690, the Essay attracted immediate attention, both favorable and not, much of it directed toward Locke's concept of the mind as tabula rasa. "This was unacceptable—even shocking—to many of Locke's readers, including the most profound of his early critics, Leibniz. For Locke the human understanding was initially like ‘white Paper, void of all Characters': all the ideas which it subsequently contains are derived from experience, either external or internal. The account of how the mind puts together various complex ideas from the material provided by sensation and reflection occupies Book 2, the longest in the Essay. Book 3 is on words, which have meaning only by acting as signs of ideas; Book 4 is on knowledge and opinion. . . . Perhaps the most original aspect of the Essay is, however, the conception of philosophy which it embodies. Locke abandoned the whole enterprise of first philosophy as practised from Aristotle to Descartes: he did not see himself as laying a metaphysical foundation on which natural philosophers could then build, but rather (as he put it in the ‘Epistle to the Reader’) ‘as an Under-Labourer … clearing Ground a little, and removing some of the Rubbish, that lies in the way to Knowledge’. (ODNB) In the substantially revised second edition, published May, 1694, the section in the chapter ‘Of power’ dealing with freedom was entirely recast, and there was a new chapter, ‘Of identity and diversity’, in which Locke equated personal identity with continuity of consciousness, and not with continuity of any spiritual substance." According to Pforzheimer, "The importance of few philosophical books have been so quickly recognized . . . It passed through many editions in English and has several times been translated." (Yolton tallies 56 different editions and translations by 1800, not counting abstracts and abridgments.) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.

Together with several other excellent Poems by the Earls of Rochester and Orrery, Sir Charles Sedley, Sir George Etheridge, the Honourable Mr. Montague, Mr. Granvill, Mr. Dryden, Mr. Chetwood, and Mr. Tate. To which is added several Poems of the Honourable Madam Wharton. The second Edition corrected

      Printed: 1695. 1659-1685 Octavo, 4.25 x 7 inches. Despite the edition statement on the title-page, this is a reissue of the sheets of the much-enlarged third edition of 1693 with a cancel title-page. It is the only edition with the familiar title "The Temple of Death" instead of "A Collection of Poems by Several Hands." The first edition had appeared in 1672, the second in 1673. A-S8,T4, E8, F1, S8 with the publisher's advertisements at the end, text continuous despite mispagination; E8, F1 and S8 cancels, as usual. This copy is bound in full modern calf with gilt lettering on spine. The title page is stained and chipped along the edge. Interesting contemporary notes appear in the margins written by Hannah Robson and Mary Turner. The 1693 sheets include the first appearance in print of seven poems by Anne Wharton (1659-85), only two of which have possible manuscript sources ('On the Storm between Gravesend and Die[p]pe' and 'The Lamentations of Jeremiah'). The niece of Rochester, Wharton was revered during her short lifetime for the piety of her poetry. Gilbert Burnet, with whom she corresponded from 1682, advised her against any association with Aphra Behn, fearing that it would taint her reputation: 'She is so abominably vile a woman. that I am as heartily sorry she has writ any thing in your commendation as I am glad, (I had almost said proud) that you have honoured me as you have done.' The 'commendation' to which Burnet refers, Behn's 'To Mrs. W. on her Excellent Verses', was written in response to Wharton's poem 'To Mrs. A Behn, on what she Writ of the Earl of Rochester', included in this collection. The other poems by Wharton challenge the contemporary portrayal of her as a rather one-dimensional 'demure, pious child'. 'To Melpomene Against Complaint' and 'Wit's Abuse' display her satirical streak; 'My Fate' is charged with a religious scepticism that Burnet encouraged her to suppress (he once reproached her for writing the line 'In death's dark mists the working soul's dissolved'); 'On the Storm between Gravesend and Diepe' suggests the unhappiness of her personal life, in particular her marriage to the future Whig leader Thomas Wharton, as she looks forward to the oblivion of death as a release from the 'dread and harm' of 'tempestuous life'. The miscellany's title-poem is a translation by the Earl of Mulgrave of Philippe Habert's elegy 'Le Temple de la Mort', in spite of the scorn expressed in the publisher's preface for the French nation, and 'the Servile way of following their Modes'.

        Amerique Septentrionale Divisée en ses Principales Parties

      Paris: 1695. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 21 1/4 x 28 inches. 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 abraded 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 abraded 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. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 709; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island 101; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 695.5; Tooley, "California as an Island," 38 in Tooley, The Mapping of America.

        Partie de la Nouvelle France

      Paris: 1695. Engraved map. 21 1/4 x 28 1/2 inches. 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.

      Amsterdam: P. & I. Bleau, 1695. Vellum. Very Good. Six volumes (in seven), 8vo., pp. [ff 1] (engraved title) + [xxii] + 706 + [2]-114 + [2]-174; [2]-596 + [2]-112 + [151] (indexes); [ff 1] + 744 + [2]-142; [ff 1] +624 + [2]-170 + [127]; [ff 1] + 958 + blank + [2]-204; [ff 1] + 784; 785-1022 + blank + [2]-234 + [162] + [1] (addenda); all contemporary vellum somewhat soiled and darkened, especially at spines (some with abrasions, one with minor loss); ex-library labels removed from spines with minor recoloring; library stamps to top edges; library ink stamp to front pastedowns; library stamps or markings to title leaf recto and verso; card pockets at rear pastedowns; browning to some leaves throughout; else a clean and complete ex-library set. Justly celebrated edition printed by Bleau, with the engraved title showing Cicero orating. Dibdin cites Dr. Harwood who wrote: "The text of this edition is beautifully and correctly printed, and the notes of Graevius a wonderful treasure of just criticism and elegant erudition." Dibdin also writes: "After all the labors of subsequent Editors, and the efforts of subsequent Printers, I am not sure whether, for commodiusness, accuracy, and beauty, any advantage will be gained by the exchange of this, for any other separately printed, impression of the Orations of Cicero.

        Miscellaneorum Sacrorum Libri IV. Quibus De Prophetis & Prophetia, de Tabernaculi Levitici mysteriis, de Collatioine Sacerdotti Aaronis & Christi, de Synderiis Hebraeorum, de IV Bestiis Danielis, de cultu Molochi, de Seculo hoc & futuro

      Amsterdam: Apud Johannem Wolters, 1695. Vellum. Very Good. Thick 4to., pp. [ff 2] + [54] + [1]-859 + [48]; contemporary vellum, lightly soiled; erasure to early holograph on spine; title leaf in red and black; decorative initials and head- and tailpieces; scattered foxing throughout; a sound, attractive copy. Bookplate on front pastedown marked Stowe, possibly biblical scholar Calvin E. Stowe, whose name and the date 1825 are written in pencil on the front flyleaf. Second edition (so stated). Illustrated with engraved frontispiece, an engraved vignette to the letterpress title, and eight engravings in the text, three of which are double-pape. Six of these appear in the text on Jewish law and ritual ("de Tabernaculi Levitici mysteriis"), and one includes an overflap showing the Ark of the Covenant. Witsius (1636-1708), a Dutch scholar of systematic theology, became embroiled in trying to reconcile reigning orthodoxy and Covenant theology, pleasing neither side. The work that he is best-known for is entitled "Economy of the Covenants between God and Man," first published 1677. Full title: Miscellaneorum Sacrorum Libri IV. Quibus De Prophetis & Prophetia, de Tabernaculi Levitici mysteriis, de Collatioine Sacerdotti Aaronis & Christi, de Synderiis Hebraeorum, de IV Bestiis Danielis, de cultu Molochi, de Seculo hoc & futuro, de sensu Epistolarum Apocalypticarum, de Schismate Donastistarum, Diligenter & polixe disseritur.
