Dated July 13th, 1700. This is not what is written on the survey but yet a bio of John White. John White was born about 1649, the son on Nicholas and Susannah (Foster) White. He resided in that part of Taunton which became Raynham in 1731. John was a surveyor, clerk of the military company, one of the Selectmen of Taunton and a large owner of real estate. In 1704 he represented Taunton on a committee to settle the boundary line between Dorchester on the one side and Taunton and Bridgewater on the other. He married Hannah Smith, the daughter of Samuel and Susanna (Reed) Smith, on 24 Feb 1680. They had ten children all born in Taunton.

With some considerations upon what is pretended from the said principles, by the Author of a Treatise, intituled, Biathanatos, and Others London. Printed for Tho. Bennet, 1700. 8vo. [16], 320pp. Contemporary panelled calf, spine richly gilt, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. Short splits to joints at head of spine, slightly rubbed to extremities, else a fine, unpressed copy. With ink inscription and armorial bookplate of John Rolle, Baron Rolle of Stevenstone (1750-1842), to FEP. A remarkably well preserved copy of the only published work, his popular sermons apart, of English clergyman John Adams (1662-1720), provost of King's College, Cambridge and chaplain to King William and Queen Anne, dedicated to Henry Godolphin, provost of Eton College. An extensive rejection of suicide on the grounds that universal acceptance of it would be 'destructive' to the order of civil society, Adams' Essay also explores the arguments of those who 'maintain this Act, to be Lawful'; namely the 'Stoicks' and most controversially, John Donne, of whose Biantanatos this work is the first serious critical study. The latter, which had not been reissued since the 1640s, was entered into the term catalogues and printed (without imprint, in octavo format, and for last time before the twentieth-century) soon after this work: presumably by an opportunistic bookseller aware of this study, and looking to satiat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Limited edition of "not more that 100 copies", this one of only 2 copies printed on vellum, with printed limitation thus on verso of title-page, and with an inserted sheet at the front with a manuscript note "Only two copies of this book printed on vellum expressly for Mr Simonds Higgs of Kensington and Mr T. Gosden of St. Martin's Lane"The appearance of the Gosden tool on the boards would suggest that this was the copy given to Thomas Gosden. However, in the sale catalogue for the library of noted bibliophile William Simonds Higgs (Sotheby's 1830), lot 58 comprised this work which sold for 3 guineas. Frustratingly the binding is not described but there is a note of a manuscript leaf that is identically worded to that in this copy.Each copy may have had matching manuscript leaves, or Gosden may have also bound Simonds Higg's copy.

Peter Longueville
London, 1700's. A charming early publication of a popular tale relating a fictitious British hermit's escape and life on a deserted island off the coast of Mexico. The book remained anonymous until 1727 when a rare edition containing a dedication signed Peter Longueville was discovered and to whom the writing is now attributed. This publication is a seventh edition printed in London for the Booksellers. The first fly page is handwritten "Levi Willis His Book 1776", followed by a titled engraving then another hand printed notation reading "Levi Willis His Book Jan 14, 1815".Some believe this book (which was probably first published in the late 1600's) was the inspiration for Robinson Crusoe -- there are enough similarities to give validity to this theory.This may be one of the oldest surviving copies

Item #0155 "John Tutchin was a radical Whig controversialist and political journalist, who's many controversial pamplets and works landed in in court many times. 'Tutchin was convinced, throughout his life, that corruption was rampant and that people were trying to defraud the government or serve an anti-English master'...'He and Defoe quarreled in their public writings, with Defoe representing a more Puritan stripe of the whig party and Tutchin the more democratic and Cromwellian side'...'In May 1704, Tutchin fled to France briefly to escape being seized.'...'After he returned to England, Tutchin continued to rail at Jacobites and French agents everywhere. He accused the Navy of secretly supplying food for the French Navy. This got him arrested again. John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough wrote in a letter to Harley, of the matter, 'If I can't have justice done me, I must find some friend that will break his and the printer's bones.' Whether he did so or not, something terrible did happen to Tutchin in prison. He was beaten severely and died of his injuries in custody on 23 September 1707."
