        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.

        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.

        PRINCE ARTHUR. AN HEROICK POEM. In Ten Books

      London: Awnsham and John Churchil, 1695. The Second Edition, corrected. Same year as the first printing. Folio (320 x 205mm), in contemporary full speckled calf, the boards with a central panel design featuring a roll tooled frame in blind using a design of tulips and with large floral cornerpieces in blind, the spine with raised bands and lined compartments, one compartment with a red morocco lettering label and with multiple rules in gilt. [xxiv], 296 pp. A very pleasing, fresh, crisp and unpressed copy in a handsome period binding. The binding very attractive and well preserved with just light aging or evidence of shelving at the extremities, hinges tight and strong, endleaves renewed to style. 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

        Catoptricae et dioptricae sphaericae elementa.

      Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford 1695 - First edition of this rare work, famous today for its suggestion that an achromatic compound lens might be formed by combining simples lenses of different media. The use of ‘achromatic doublets’ was a crucial step in the further development of telescopes and microscopes.From Marischal College, Aberdeen, David Gregory (1659-1708) entered Edinburgh University, graduating M.A. on 28 November 1683. A month prior to his graduation he was elected to the Chair of Mathematics, at one time occupied by his uncle, the great mathematician James Gregory, whose Optica promota (1663) had described a reflecting telescope which used parabolic mirrors. As a professor, David Gregory was the first to lecture publicly on the Newtonian philosophy. His lecture notes show that they covered a broad range of subjects including geodesy, optics, dynamics, and various branches of mathematics. Increasingly under attack by his fellow professors at Edinburgh for his radical political views, in 1691 he went to London where he was introduced to Newton and recommended to John Flamsteed, the first astronomer royal. In that same year, Edward Barnard retired from the Savilian professorship of Astronomy at Oxford; backed by Newton’s recommendation of him as ‘very well skilled in Analysis & Geometry both new & old . understands Astronomy very well . & is respected the greatest Mathematician in Scotland’, and with Flamsteed’s support, Gregory was elected to the chair in face of strong opposition from Edmond Halley. As Gregory tells us in the preface, the present work is the printed version of lectures delivered at Edinburgh in 1684, adapted to the teaching of Oxford undergraduates. The passage in which Gregory uses the analogy with the human eye to suggest the construction of an achromatic lens occurs on p. 98: in English translation, ‘Perhaps it would be of service to make the object lens of a different medium, as we see done in the fabric of the eye; where the crystalline humour (whose power of refracting the rays of light differs very little from that of glass) is by Nature, who never does anything in vain, joined with the aqueous and vitreous humours (not differing from water as to their power of refraction), in order that the image may be painted as distinct as possible on the bottom of the eye.’ Whiteside (DSB) suggests that Gregory may have had this insight from Newton. The work was reprinted at Edinburgh in 1713. An English translation followed two years later with notes by William Browne on refracting telescopes and microscopes; this was republished in 1735 by Desaguliers with an added appendix on the history of the reflecting telescope. In addition to the present work, Gregory published in 1684 at Edinburgh his Exercitatio geometrica de dimensione figurarum in which, with the assistance of his uncle’s work, he extended the method of quadratures by infinite series; and in 1702 Astronomiae physicae & geometricae elementa, the first textbook of astronomy based on Newtonian gravitational principles. ESTC R16816; DSB V: 520-1; Honeyman 1550; Poggendorff I, 948; Vagnetti CB1. 8vo (177 x 110 mm), pp. [iv], 99, [1], with engraved vignette of Sheldonian Theatre on title and numerous woodcut diagrams in text.

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.
