        Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest and Raising the Value of Money. In a Letter to a Member of Parliament.

      Small octavo, 16.0 x 9.6 cm contemporary mottled calf, worn, covers with blind rule, rebacked, red morocco label lettered gilt, pp(2) + 4pp + 192 + (2), title within double ruled border, complete with the licence leaf and the printed errata, errata corrected throughout in ink in a contemporary hand, engraved armorial bookplate of Stephen Martin Leake.Provenance: Stephen Martin Leake [1702-1773] herald and numismatist, author of Nummi Britannica historia: An historical account of English money. 1726Wing L2760. Kress 1792. Goldsmith 2491. Attig, Works of John Locke 494. Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, pp.132-134. Erich Roll, History of Economic Thought, pp.114-118First edition of John Locke?s first book on economics - Locke?s most important contribution to mercantile and monetary theory. It was an attempt to influence Parliament to defeat a bill to lower the legal rate of interest from 6% to 4% - it was fixed by law at 5% on January 23rd 1692. "Locke followed William Petty closely in deriving his theory of interest from an analysis of rent. He still regarded rent as the only surplus, and inquired how money, which was by nature barren, could have the same productive character as the soil, which did produce something useful. His conclusion was that just as the unequal distribution of land enabled those who had more than they could cultivate themselves to take a tenant from whom they obtained rent, so the unequal distribution of money enabled its owners to obtain a tenant for it from whom they could receive interest" Erich Roll p.115"It was, however, Locke?s emphasis on the medium of exchange function of money which was the starting-point for his further discussion. This was based on the quantity theory of money...Against the prevailing mercantilist view that a low rate of interest would raise prices, Locke pointed out that prices were determined by the amount of money in circulation. This view was based on a supply and demand theory of price...Locke, in spite of occasional inconsistencies, held the view that changes in the amount of money were bound to affect prices". Erich Roll, p.117The book was published anonymously: "This pre-occupation with anonymity, this inability to be open with the world, his friends or even himself about what he had written and why he had written it, is a trait of Locke?s" Peter Laslett, The Library of John Locke.

        Philosophi Opera Omnia accessit a viris doctis ad Senecam annotera delectus.

      apud Thomas Fritsch 1702 - Lipsiae [Leipzig], apud Thomas Fritsch, 1702. 2 tomes en 1 fort vol. in 12 de [10]-584-837-133 (index)pp., reliure en pleine peau de truie sur ais de bois de l'époque, dos à 4 nerfs, pièce de titre de papier marron postérieure, encadrée d'une petite frise noire et d'un double filet, titre tapuscrit noir, plats richement ornés de filets, de roulettes d'encadrement, de fleurons, d'une mosaique centrale estampés, légères salissures et taches sur le dos et les plats, petit manque de cuir à la bordure inférieure du premier plat, fers absents; attaches noircies à la marge latérale du second plat et reste d'une attache sur la partie inférieure de la coupe supérieure, une rousseur sur la marge des dernières pages de l'index, papier bruni, petite étiquette rouge marquant la marge de la page de titre du tome II., rousseurs éparses et quelques petites taches marron touchant parfois le texte sans gravité, papier bruni à certains feuillets, signature d'appartenance à l'encre noire sur le premier contreplat et sur la première page de garde; Aquilini Haecker 1728 et Joach. Haecker, frontispice orné d'un portrait de Sénèque, bon et bel exemplaire. Sénèque naquit dans l'actuelle Cordoue en Espagne vers 4 avant Jésus Christ et décéda en 65 après Jésus Christ. Il fut conseiller à la cour impériale sous Caligula, Conseiller de Claude et précepteur de Néron. Il joua un rôle très important de conseiller auprès de ce dernier avant d'être discrédité et compromis dans la conjuration de Pison, l'acculant au suicide. Il fut un philosophe stoïcien, sans doute le plus complet, ceci pouvant principalement se vérifier dans ses dernières oeuvres: ''De Ira'' (De la colère) (41-49 après Jésus Christ), ''De brevitate vitae'' (De la briéveté de la vie) (49-55 après Jésus Christ), ''De vita beata'' (Sur la vie heureuse) (58 après Jésus Christ), et enfin ses lettres à Lucilius (63-64 après Jésus Christ). Sénèque place les passions humaines au premier rang de sa doctrine. Les péripatéticiens se bornaient à les ''règler'', Sénèque et les stoïciens les supprimaient. L'âme jouissait alors de cet heureux état qu'ils appelaient insensibilité, sérénité. Les passions, pour ce courant philosophique, sont un mal. Seules la vertu et la raison permettent à l'homme de s'affranchir et à s'élever. Face au polythéisme officiel, Sénèque voulut placer l'homme, non pas l'homme commun, mais l'homme sage, affranchi de ses passions, au centre du système. Celui qui est devenu sage est même supérieur à Dieu. L'homme de coeur et de raison se fera Dieu, il tendra vers une vertu parfaite, âme inacessible à toute passion et très éloignée de toute préocupation métaphysique. La sagesse doit amener à la perfection humaine ultime tendant à égaler puis à dépasser Dieu. Ainsi le stoïcien décide de sa propre mort, tel Sénèque qui fit le choix de se la donner plutôt que de devoir la subir. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CITY OF NEW-YORK...[blank] ESQ; MAYOR OF THE CITY OF NEW-YORK. TO THE SHERIFF, CONSTABLES, AND OTHER HER MAJESTYS OFFICERS WITHIN THE SAID CITY, GREETING. KNOW YE, THAT I HAVE LICENSED...[blank] OF THE CITY AFORESAID, [blank] TO SELL WINE, BEER, BRANDY RUM, SYDER, OR ANY OTHER SORTS OF STRONG LIQUORS BY RETAIL

      [New York: Printed by William Bradford, 1702-1714].. Broadside, 7 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches. Light foxing. Very good. An unrecorded printed blank form for a retail alcohol sales license in New York city, produced for the Mayor's office during the first two decades of New York printing. The final lines of the form date the printing to the reign of Queen Anne (1702-14), during which time William Bradford was the only working printer in New York. William Bradford (1663-1752) was the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies" (DAB) - the first in both Pennsylvania and New York. He originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Various controversies led to significant legal hassles there, including the temporary seizure of his types and paper in 1692, and in 1693 Bradford answered a call to come to New York and print the acts of assembly and other official papers for the colonial council. No records have been found locating an alcohol license form printed in New York earlier than the present document, making this the first known example of its kind. DAB II, pp.563-64.

      apud Waesbergios, Boom & Goethals 1702 - Amsterdam, apud Waesbergios, Boom & Goethals, 1702. 3 vol. in 8 de [XII]-832-[14]pp., 805-[10]pp., 810- [9]pp., reliures en plein vélin rigide de l'époque, dos lisses avec manuscrit à l'encre noire le nom de lauteur, le titre et le numéro de tomaison, chaque volume avec le titre gravé, volume II. avec quinze planches gravées et illustrées par Mulder à pleine page, chaque partie ayant son propre frontispice gravé, double filet et frises d'encadrement estampés sur les plats, fleurons losangés estampés au centre des plats, intérieur très frais, volumes très purs, bon et bel exemplaire. Ovide (43 avant Jésus Christ - 17 avant Jésus Christ), vécut durant l'emergence de l'empire romain. Il naquit un an après l'assassinat de César et assista à la phase de transformation de la république romaine en Empire sous le règne d'Auguste. Après des études de rhétorique, il abandonna une carrière administrative et juridique, se consacrant pleinement au metier d'écrivain, obtenant un grand succès avec ses différentes oeuvres: ''Les amours'', ''L'art d'aimer'' et ''Les remèdes de l'amour''. A l'âge de quarante ans il débuta l'écriture des ''Métamorphoses'', poème composé de 12 000 hexamètres en 16 livres, reprenant et s'inspirant des récits mythologiques grecs et romains. Ovide fut contraint à l'exil sur une petite île de la mer noire en Roumanie, pour des raisons d'ordre privé qui restent encore floues; sanctions du pouvoir conservateur sur un plan moral, contre l'auteur pour avoir écrit ''L'art d'aimer'', relation amoureuse prohibée d'Ovide avec une fille de l'Empereur ou bien que ce dernier aurait été surpris par le poète dans une situation équivoque avec un jeune homme dénomé Heinsius.

In his works and compilations of others’ works on assaying and metallurgical chemistry he attempted to “free this literature, and indeed all scientific publication, from the fantasies of alchemists. To this end he wrote for a lay audience and for future scientists, rather than for an exclusive circle of initiates” (DSB). Author of a number of serious “contributions to the science of assaying [in which he] sought to state, as clearly as possible, prescriptions and methods for experimentation,” he also wrote a rare comedy on alchemy which is “nowhere mentioned by historians of German literature” (op. cit.). Kellner has been equally neglected by historians of science and his works would deserve further study: “there is no secondary literature of any value that deals with his importance as a physician or ? and here the omission is more surprising ? with his contribution to the development of specialized literature in the field of metallurgy” (ibid.) & & I: A compilation treating saltworks and the chemistry of salpetre, bringing together material from Wilhem von Schroder’s Fürstliche Schatz- und Rentkammer, and from works by Johannes Mathesius, Peter Eichholtz, Johann Friedrich Suchland, Johann Ludwig Glaser, and Jan Baptiste van Helmont.

Vander Gucht (including additional engraved title page), double-page map showing the travels of the children of Israel out of Egypt, and double-page plan of Old Jerusalem. (According to ESTC, plates vary among different copies.) Contemorary Cambridge-style paneled calf tooled in blind, rebacked to match, spine in seven compartments between raised bands, mustard-colored morocco lettering piece gilt. An excellent copy with handsome, expertly restored period binding; deep, rich impressions of the plates, and fresh, bright pages free of foxing. First Edition of this translation. The additional engraved title page shows four portraits, of Vespasian, Titus, Josephus, and L’Estrange, above which are images of the Garden of Eden, the Ark of Noah, the Ark of the Covenant, and the Temple. The two plates depict various religious and cultural accouterments. Titus Flavius Josephus was a first-century Jewish scholar and historian, born in Jerusalem—then part of Roman Judea—to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry. He fought against the Romans during the First Jewish–Roman War, surrendering in 67 after the six-week siege of Jotapata to Roman forces led by Vespasian. When Vespasian became Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, and Josephus assumed the emperor's family name of Flavius and was granted Roman citizenship. He later became an advisor and friend of Vespasian's son Titus, serving as his translator when Titus led the Siege of Jerusalem, which resulted in the city's destruction and the looting of Herod's Temple. Josephus recorded Jewish history, with special emphasis on the first century AD and the First Jewish–Roman War, including the Siege of Masada. His most important works were The Jewish War (c. 75), which recounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation, and Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94), which records the history of the world from a Jewish perspective.

      Finely engraved added title (very slightly cropped at outer edge) & several woodcuts in the text (one cropped at foot). 5 p.l. (incl. double-page printed title which is printed in red & black), 562, [20] pp., one leaf of instructions to the binder. 8vo, cont. fine smooth vellum over boards. Frankfurt & Leipzig: C.C. Neuenhahn, 1702. First edition of this very rare collection of texts on mining, metallurgy, and glass-making gathered and reworked by the little-known yet important Kellner (fl. 17th cent.). He took his doctor's degree in Helmstedt in 1670 and later worked in Nordhausen. He wrote a number of works on assaying and a comedy which excoriated alchemy. Kellner has used here the texts of Mathesius, Eichholtz, Suchland, Löhneysen, J.L. Gläser, and Paracelsus as well as his own writings. "Kellner's interest in scientific writing manifested itself mainly in the field of metallurgical chemistry. He wished above all to free this literature, and indeed all scientific publication, from the fantasies of alchemists. Toward this end he wrote for a lay audience and for future scientists, rather than for an exclusive circle of initiates...Among those who wrote on science in his time, Kellner was one of the more serious authors and was certainly so considered by his contemporaries...Most of Kellner's writings...were meant to be, as their titles indicate, contributions to the science of assaying. Kellner sought to state, as clearly as possible, prescriptions and methods for experimentation."-D.S.B., VII, p. 284. Fine and fresh copy. ❧ Hoover 474. See Ferguson, I, pp. 455-57-(no copy in Young collection). .

        MAGNALIA CHRISTI AMERICANA: OR, THE ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY OF NEW-ENGLAND, FROM ITS FIRST PLANTING IN THE YEAR 1620. UNTO THE YEAR OF OUR LORD, 1698. IN SEVEN BOOKS

      London: Printed for Thomas Parkhurst, 1702.. Double-page engraved map of New England and New York. Without errata leaves, as usual. Folio. Expertly bound to style in 18th- century calf, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, brown morocco label in the second compartment, the others with overall repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Expert restoration to title and map, else very good. Provenance: William Clarke (signature on title); Samuel Breck (signature on fly leaf). The first edition of what Howes calls the "most famous 18th century American book": a sentiment echoed by Streeter, who describes it as "the most famous American book of colonial times." Mather's opus is rightly considered an indispensable source for the history of New England in the 17th century, both for its biographies and its history of civil, religious, and military affairs. The seven books include: 1) the history and settlement of New England; 2) the lives of its governors and magistrates; 3) biographies of "Sixty Famous Divines"; 4) a history and roll of Harvard College; 5) a history of the Congregational Church in New England; 6) a record of the remarkable providences revealing God's direct influence in particular events in the colonies; and 7) the "War of the Lord" dealing with the devil, the Separatists, Familists, Antinomians, Quakers, clerical imposters, and the Indians. Much of the book's value rests in its incomparable wealth of detail regarding daily life in early colonial New England. David Hall has referred to it as "a mirror of the 1690s," the decade in which most of it was written. Far from being a dull chronicle of events, the MAGNALIA... is full of lively biographical pieces, vivid descriptions of the times, and many surprising sidelights. It has been mined by all modern scholars of social history for its unsurpassed view of New England at the end of the 17th century. The map, known as the "Mather map," is actually titled "An Exact Mapp of New England and New York." Labeled "the first eighteenth- century general map of New England" by cartographic historian Barbara McCorkle, it depicts an area from Casco Bay, west to the Hudson, then south to Manhattan and northwest past Long Island to Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod, before heading north again past Boston to Casco Bay. The information concerning the early roads is particularly valuable, and the early versions of the spelling of the towns and rivers cast a fascinating light on the early topographic nomenclature of colonial America.

        [GROUP OF THREE MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE ACTIVITY OF FRENCH CANADIAN AND PENNSYLVANIA FUR TRADER AND EXPLORER PETER BISAILLON]

      New York & Philadelphia. 1702, 1712, 1714.. 3pp. Folio. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling, earliest document more heavily so. Good plus. Three significant early manuscript documents relating to French Canadian trapper and Indian trader and interpreter Peter Bisaillon and his trading activities in North America, including an official license from the Province of Pennsylvania. Bisaillon (1662-1742) - whose name appears in the documents spelled variously Besallion, Bizaillon, and Beselion - came to Canada with his four brothers in the late 17th century. He was part of Henri Tonti's expedition down the Mississippi that went in search of La Salle in 1686. Two or three years later he moved to Pennsylvania where he engaged in business with Jacques Le Tort as an employee of Dr. Daniel Coxe near present-day Spring City. Coxe ceased business in 1692, but Bisaillon and his associates continued to trade in the wilds of Pennsylvania and the western provinces, maintaining ties with various Indian tribes and Canadian trappers. Jealousies and competition within the fur trade and between the colonies was fierce and Bisaillon frequently ran into trouble when his competitors' patrons were in power. In 1712, Bisaillon finally found some measure of security in the patronage and employ of James Logan, the secretary of the province, who was consolidating control over both political power and the Indian trade. This endeavor would eventually help precipitate the French and Indian War, as Pennsylvania challenged France for control over the trade in the Ohio country. The first document chronologically is a letter written to Bisaillon by a young girl claiming to be his daughter. It is dated at New York, August 27, 1702 and is addressed "Beloved father." Jahanna Beselion, who makes her mark by her name at the end of the letter, pleads with Bisaillon to acknowledge her in some way, as her mother has given her away. She writes, with spelling as it appears in the letter: "Beloved father, My only desier is, that my dier father would be pleast to remember me, for I understand that you are my only father, my mother Jannaihe Scoute shee taks noe care of me for shee gave me away hwen I was a litle child to Anna Couvenowen, whar I have bin these 12 yeare and a halfe and have bin well brought up and mantand that I can do in the house wat belongs to it. Now my only desier is that my beloved father would be pleas to remember his diere child, and sand me few word back again that should mak me glad and satisfigd in my mind that I had a father in life; my homley respect to my diere father for ever Petter Beselion." The second document is a bond release between "John Treson of Philadelphia Skinner" and Bisaillon. The document, signed with Treson's mark and in the presence of two witnesses, releases "Peter Besallion of Philadelphia Indian Trader" from any judgments, transactions, quarrels, controversies, trespasses, or any other damages and demands which might be brought by Treson or his heirs. It is dated June 27, 1712. Treson and Bisaillon clearly had some sort of partnership or business accord. Bisaillon was licensed by the colony of Pennsylvania, although as a French national and a Roman Catholic he was considered an alien. Through his position with Logan, he maintained significant trading activities among the Conestoga Indians, the Delaware, and other tribes in the area. The third piece is perhaps the most interesting of the three, being an official Pennsylvania colonial license issued to Bisaillon as an Indian Trader in the province. It reads: "By the Commissioners of Property. We doe hereby authorize and allow Peter Bizaillon Indian Trader to seat him self at Peshlang or any other Indian Town or Place on Sasquehannah within this Province & to erect such buildingd as are necessary for his Trade, and to inclose and improve such quantities of land as he shall think fitt for the accommodation of his family and creatures not exceeding two hundred and fifty acres to be held during his Trade there or till further order shall be given herein by the Proprietor or his Commissioners provided alwayes that the said Peter shall not act or proceed in any thing under colour hereof but by the free leave & approbation of the Indians amongst whom he dwells or resides. Given under our hands and seal of the Province at Philadelphia the 15th day of October AD 1714." It is signed by Richard Hill, Isaac Norris, James Logan and bears the paper and wax seal of the colony. A collection of fascinating and early documents relating to the life of this important trapper and trader in early frontier Pennsylvania.

        Anabaptisticum et Enthusiasticum

      Kothen [] - No Publisher Given, 1702 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce copy of this controversial pro-Lutheran work from the early eighteenth-century in fourteen pamphlets. In German and Latin, written inGothic script. Illustrated throughout with fifty-three engraved plates. From the antiquarian library of Emeritus Professor David A. Palin of the University of Manchester (signature to front pastedown), collected over a period of almost forty years. The work is a collection of items, each with its own title-page and pagination. Although the attribution to Johann Friedrich Corvinus as the compiler is according to a note on the front pastedown citing R. Foth writing in The Mennonite Encyclopaedia and is followed by the Oxford catalogue, on the blank opposite the title page there is a note in German from about the end of the 18th century saying that the catalogue of the library of Abbot Molanus ascribes the work to Henry George Neuss (who was the author of the final item in the compilation. ) [From the catalogue of David Palin's private library]. Tipped-in ink description reads, 'A strange pamphleteering volume, large folio in size, with over 1,000 pages, was compiled in 1702 by a certain Johann Friedrich Corvinus (Rabe), a Lutheran minister of Hornburg (died 1724). The volume contains 14 different pamphlets attacking practically everyone who was not of the strict Lutheran orthodoxy of about 1700. It attacks above all the Quakers, but also Mystics, Pansophists (Rosicrucians), all kinds of Pietists (e. g. , Labadie), philosophers such as Descartes, Spinoza and Hobbes, Jews, Cromwell and his Puritans, and, last but not least, the old and new fanatics of Anabaptist spirit (pamphlet II). Yet, in the text proper, only Thomas Mntzer is discussed. Condition: In a vellum binding. Externally, a little worn, with marks and slight wear to the extremities. Hinges are slightly strained. Internally, generally firmly bound although strained in places, with one plate detached. Institutional ink stamps to front pastedown and endpapers, with ink inscription and tipped-in synopsis of the work, along with a second tipped-in synopsis attributing the work to a different author to the front free-endpaper. Evidence of past worming to first few pages. Pages are quite bright considering the age, though with some light background foxing and some offsetting. Overall: GOOD..
