        Della perfetta poesia italiana spiegata, e dimostrata con varie osservazioni.In Modena, nella stampa di Bartolomeo Soliani stampator ducale, 1706.

      In Modena, nella stampa di Bartolomeo Soliani stampator ducale 1706 - Due volumi di cm. 23, pp. xii, 599 (1); xii, 483 (1) + (8) [le 8 pagine n.n. in fine, contengono l'aggiunta al secondo volume con una raccolta di sonetti di Giovanni Battista Zappi]. Alcuni bellissimi capilettera istoriati. Legatura coeva in piena perg. rigida con titoli ms. al dorso. Macchiette e minime tracce d'uso alle legature, fioriture sparse, lievi e sporadici aloni (soprattutto all'angolo della seconda metà del secondo volume). Esemplare nel complesso genuino e in buono stato di conservazione. Ludovico Antonio Muratori (1672-1750), nativo di Vignola, è considerato il padre della storiografia italiana. Così la voce M. a cura di Giorolamo Imbruglia a proposito di quest'opera (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, volume 77): "Il Della perfetta poesia italiana apparve a Modena nel 1706. Per cogliere la verità della poesia Muratori propose non esempi ma «difetti» da evitare (I, 2); insofferente per il gretto purismo e attento alla lingua come fenomeno dinamico, polemizzava contro la rigidità del classicismo arcade e contro i trattati rinascimentali e del marinismo. Nell'arte risplende un aspetto della verità del mondo (I, 5), dal quale deriva una nuova percezione della realtà (I, 6), che il poeta deve «perfezionare» (I, 8), e le azioni umane vi hanno così senso universale (I, 8-12). Contro il razionalismo cartesiano e la tesi del rispecchiamento, trovò la radice della poesia nell'espressione di uno stato d'animo da parte del «furore poetico», secondo l'espressione largamente usata. Il libro II studia l'ingegno e il giudizio. Vi prevale il compromesso arcadico. L'ingegno produce le metafore e la poesia; il giudizio circoscrive il bello e produce la prosa. Il III libro analizza l'arte non come diletto, ma come utile (III, 7 e 1) e come «soggetta alla politica, come parte o ministra della filosofia de' costumi» (III, 1)". Non comune prima edizione. Cfr. Iccu; Gamba, 2359. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hollands aeloude vryheid, buyten het stadhouderschap, by deszelfs eerste vorm van staats-bestier, door de eedelen en steeden verdeedigd, tegen velerhande dwingelandyen; tot na de dood van Willem de Derde, koning van Groot-Brittanië. [.] Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1706.

      - [NL] Coll.: 4º: *-2*4 (*3 als A3) A-O4 P6 (-P5) Q-T4 V2, 2A-3F4, 3A-Y4, gepag.: [16] 156, 413 [3], 153 [23] pp. Met een gegraveerde titelpagina, een kopvignet boven de opdracht aan Wilhem de la Palma en 6 uitslaande platen (30 x 18 cm), alle door Romeyn de Hooghe. Ex.: Leer, geribde rug met titelschild, platten gemarmerd, hoeken beschadigd, verder goed exemplaar. Bibl. verw.: Haitsma Mulier/Van der Lem 232b; Landwehr 102; Lit.: NNBW VIII, 786; Te Winkel IV, p.450. Van der Hoeven, geboren omstreeks 1660 in Amsterdam, heeft daar waarschijnlijk gewerkt als koopman; hij trad - zo blijkt uit de titelpagina - ook op als vertegenwoordiger van de hertog van Saksen. Eén jaar voor 'Hollands aeloude vryheid' had Ten Hoorn een ander omvangrijk historisch werk van hem uitgegeven, 'Leeven en dood der doorlugtige heeren gebroeders Cornelis de Witt [.] en Johan de Witt', waarvoor Romeyn de Hooghe ook de titelpagina had geleverd. Wilhem de la Palma, aan wie het werk is opgedragen, was van 1702 tot 1705 directeur-generaal van de West-Indische Compagnie op de Goudkust, waar hij het hoog gezag by zulke Volkeren voerd, die in tegenstelling van ons, de volkomene voorbeelden van de slaverny zijn, schrijft Van der Hoeven onbekommerd in de opdracht, waarmee hij ongetwijfeld de algemene opinie verwoordde. Ook het toneel had zijn belangstelling: hij was lid van het toneelgenootschap 'In magnis voluisse sat est' en heeft een zestal toneelstukken geschreven, deels oorspronkelijk, deels bewerkt naar het , 523, . Hij moet in of na 1727 zijn overleden, want zijn laatste stuk, de klucht 'De drie Hamburgers', dateert van dat jaar. [EN] Coll.: 4º: *-2*4 (*3 als A3) A-O4 P6 (-P5) Q-T4 V2, 2A-3F4, 3A-Y4, gepag.: [16] 156, 413 [3], 153 [23] pp. with engraved title page and head-piece above the dedication to Wilhelm de la Palma and six folding plates (30 x 18 cm), by Romeyn de Hooghe. Ex: Leather, ribbed back with title label, sides in marbled paper, corners damaged, otherwise good exemplar. Bibliography: Haitsma Mulier/Van der Lem 232b; Landwehr 102; Lit.: NNBW VIII, 786; Te Winkel IV, p.450. Van der Hoeven, born in Amsterdam around 1660, perhaps worked there as merchant; he was also - according to the title page - agent of the duke of Saksen. One year before 'Hollands aeloude vryheid' Ten Hoorn published another extensive historical work by him, , 'Leeven en dood der doorlugtige heeren gebroeders Cornelis de Witt [.] en Johan de Witt', for which Romeyn de Hooghe made the title page. Wilhelm de Palma, to whom this work is dedicated, was general director of the Dutch West India Company on the Golden Coast. He was also member of the theatrical company 'In magnis voluisse sat est' for which he himself wrote pieces or translated some from French. He died perhaps after 1727, since his last known piece 'De drie Hamburgers' is dating from that year. RdH013

        Den Danske Vitruvius ... | Le Vitruve Danois ... | Der Dänische Vitruvius.Copenhagen, Ernst Henrich Berlings, 1746-1749. 2 volumes. Imperial folio (48 x 30.5 cm). With richly engraved architectural frontispiece, and 281 engraved and etched plates, including 5 double-page, with architectural plans, designs and views of the Danish castles, manors, public buildings, churches, etc., including beautiful bird's-eye views of houses and gardens, views of the city of Copenhagen, etc., as well as interior architectural designs for mantelpieces, doorways, altars, pulpits, etc., by Michael Keijl and C.L. Wüst, after the drawings by L. de Thurah (Thieme-Becker attributes the views to J.J. Bruun). 20th-century half brown goatskin, gold-tooled spine.

      BAL 3317; Berlin Kat. 2259; Millard arch. coll. III, 131; not in Fowler. Beautiful atlas of Danish architecture, with the text in Danish, French and German in parallel columns. It shows an abundant wealth of plans and interior and exterior architectural designs, explained in the text. The fine overall views show the castle and gardens of Rosenburg, Christiansburg, Charlottenburg, Amalienburg, etc., and the country-seats Sorgenfrey, Fredensburg, Iägerprijs, Fraidenlund, Scanderburg, Nyekiöburg, Herlufsholm, Walloë, etc. The title-page names no author, but Laurids de Thurah (1706-1759), who signed the dedication to King Frederick V, was the most influential Danish architect of his generation and a leading proponent of the late Baroque style in northern Europe. He was appointed court architect in 1733. In 1735 the new Danish king, Christian VI, made Thurah a grant specifically for the purpose of compiling Den Danske Vitruvius, but he died only months before the first volume appeared, so Thurah dedicated the book to his young son and successor. Vol. I depicts the royal palaces and public buildings of Copenhagen; vol. II the castles and other notable buildings outside the capital. A planned third volume never appeared. With bookplate. Frontispiece bound in vol. II. With some faint stains and minor restorations in the first and last leaves, but still in good condition, with only occasional and mostly marginal spots or small stains. A monumental celebration of Danish architecture, with 282 very large plates.

Second edition. - 1706 NAVIGATION of Jean Bouguer Voyages Star Charts Illustrated MAPS Compass A rare second edition of Jean Bouguer’s “Complete Treaty of Navigation”. According to Pierre Bouguer, Jean’s son, on this book, “I believe that I will not be denied by anyone when I saw that this treaty is regarded, for a long time, as the most unique book on these matters.” Jean Bouguer was sailor and voyager on the King’s ships, sadly, he lost a leg in 1698 and became inactive from the Navy. He then began teaching and writing. His navigation expertise was recorded in this book which illustrates general rules of navigation. It also deals with marine charts, understanding tangents & secants, use of logarithms, demonstrations and interpretation of scales and equivalencies, avoiding false routes, and using the Sun and stars to accurately navigate. This 1706 edition includes 11 plates depicting these navigational tools and techniques. The first edition of this book, 1698, was so popular and quickly exhausted that it needed a reprint. Unfortunately, one was not made available until 1706. Item number: #1297 Price: $1,500 BOUGUER, Jean.

        THREE YEARS TRAVELS FROM MOSCOW OVERLAND TO CHINA: Thro' Great Ustiga, Siriania,

      London 1706, Freeman. Contemporary tooled calf, small 4to, 18 x 25 cm cm., 210p., engravings: title page and 30 plates, large folding engraved map and frontispiece or short title page. Q U I T E R A R E FIRST ENGLISH EDITION . . THE FIRST ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDITION . . PETER THE GREAT SENT IDES [A DANE] AS AMBASSADOR . . AS AMBASSADOR TO THE EMPEROR OF CHINA 1693-1730 . . This is the First English language translation, of this title, published in 1706. . * WRITTEN IN THE "OLDE" ENGLISH: . This work like most of its contemporaries of this period were always written in "Olde English." That means instead of using "s" where we now would spell that word correctly, "Olde English" always used "f" to replace all "s" spellings. This is a common feature for books from around 1500 onwards until it was changed to use "s" in the modern epoch. This book being printed more than 300 years ago uses that old style and format.. . *** SUBTITLE continued: "... and the Cusftoms of the Barbarous Inhabitants; with Reference to their Religion, Government, Marriages, daily Imployments [sic], Habits, Habitations, Diet, Death, Funerals &c. Written by his Excellency E. Ysbrants Ides, Ambaffador from the Czar of Mufcovy to the Emperor of China. Illuftrated with a large map of the countries, drawn by the Ambaffador upon his journey, and many curious cuts ["cuts" = engravings]." . *** WHO WAS THE AUTHOR: Evert Ysbrants IDES: [1657-ca.1708] Everard E. Isbrant was a Dane, he was appointed the Czar of Moscovy's [Russian] Ambassador to China in 1692. . This work covers his travels to China beginning in 1692 through 1694, taking some two years and 10 months to complete, successfully ending in 1695 with his arrival at Peking. . Ides was one of the most important early Europeans to describe the Gobi Desert. His account appeared in French translation, along with a work by Cornelis de Bruijn. See below. . *** CONTAINING THE SECOND BOOK: . A second book is also added: "TO WHICH IS ANNEX'D AN ACCURATE DEFCRIPTION OF CHINA, DONE ORIGINALLY BY A CHINEFE AUTHOR: With Feveral Remarks' by Way of Commentary, Alluding to What our European Authors have Writ of that Country." . *** . WITH A SECOND TITLE PAGE: "A Short Description of the Vast Empire of China by Dionysius Kao, a Native of That Country." . *** TRANSLATION FROM DUTCH INTO ENGLISH: "Printed in Dutch by the direction of Burgomaster Witzen, formerly Ambassador in England; & now Faithfully done into English." . *** WITH 30 ENGRAVED COPPER ETCHINGS: . This work contains engraved copper-etchings and a large folding map: . This is a lovely and charming early primary source, with 30 superb copper-etched engravings, 8 are folding, plus the large engraved folding map. . THE MAP: Commonly this book is found lacking the map. Our copy has the large etched map which is very decorative. It is in fairly nice condition for a work printed over 315 years ago. There is a bit of dark at the top one-third, some small, expertly mended tears, and remains in the large size: 68 x 51 cm. A good number of these maps were trimmed. All in all an excellent item. . The map has an elaborate cartouche, showing all of China, from Moscow East to the Pacific Ocean, The North and down South to India, Laos & the Southern provinces of China, including Formosa. Also shown are Ryukyu, Corea, Japan both of which are shown as islands, and all that falls inside this great square. . Famous coastal cities as Canton, Fokien, Suchon. Famous inland cities: Nanking, Peking and other major cities nicely shown. . Nicely illustrating geographical features: mountains, rivers, provincial lines, deserts, lakes, inland seas, to the Mediterranean Sea are shown. . *** THE CHAPTERS: . Chapters cover the journey from Moscow through Siberia and Tartar lands, with great accounts of the areas traversed, crossing of great rivers, with the entry to the border of China in Xixigar [Mongolia], Tartarian desert, with good description of Chinese buildings, Great Wall, music, diet, furniture, idols, transportation mode, their elaborate reception at the Court of Peking with entertainment by the Emperor [of China]. Description of the fabulous palace, the foreign Jesuits and the rare animal collection. *** . A THIRD PART: "SHORT DESCRIPTION OF CHINA" . To which is added a "SHORT DESCRIPTION OF CHINA" covering the provinces of that great land: Peking & the Imperial Court and metropolis. With a brief essay on each of the provinces cited, with products and attributes: [sic] Xanthun, Xansi, Xiesi, Honan, Leaotung, Nanking, Chekiang, Kiangsi, Huquang, Suchuen, Queicheu and Junan, Quaoangsi, Quoangtung, Fokien: covers some five pages as an important province with much war and suffering, where the Emperor's forces drove out the Dutch from Formosa or Tajoan [sic for Taiwan].

With a major essay on early Fokien province, and Taiwan, with discussion of Ginseng and other medicinal plants. The second essay is a fascinating DESCRIPTION OF CHINA by a Chinese doctor, Dionysius Kao, who practiced in Siam and India, and was a Roman Catholic convert. . *** THE ENGRAVINGS & THE LARGE ENGRAVED MAP: Complete with all engraved illustrations and the RARE map: . FINELY ENGRAVED COPPER-ETCHED MAP: . This copy also contains an exceptionally clean and bright folding copper-engraved map. Commonly this book is found lacking the map. *** . A NOTE ON COLOR SCANS POSTED TO OUR WEBSITE: . Some of the color photos or scans posted to our website may show a darker or slightly different, or a bit discolored color than is actual.

The paper and all copper-etched engravings are very clean and bright. . *** CONDITION: The book is nicely bound in period original full brown tooled calf, 5 raised spine bands, with gilt decorations and covers with paneled cover designs. The covers have a tooled-design with a darker vertical oblong area in the center, with blind-stamped gilt design. The spine has a red leather label with gold-stamped titles.

"Ides, who was a Dane in the service of Peter the Great, set out from Moscow March 14th, 1692 . Traveling as a public character, he had the leisure to observe anything of note...He composed his journal for the information and satisfaction of Peter the Great who was well pleased with the results and rewarded the author with the post of Privy Councilor. The Russian embassy had less trouble with the enormous self-esteem of the Chinese than many earlier and later embassies. Before the Tartars became masters of China, it was almost impossible for foreigners to find admittance to the Imperial court. . Under the Emperor then ruling, Kanghi, ministers were courteously received and enabled to transact their business as at any other court. This accommodation was contrary to the temper & traditions of the old Chinese, who opposed it as much as they dared. Kang-hi was desirous of preventing Russian encroachments upon his territories and the Czar was anxious to establish a regular commerce with China. The exp- edition added considerable geographical knowledge to the little that was known about Northern Manchuria and China." * Oriental Library: CATALOGUE OF THE ASIATIC LIBRARY OF DR. G.E.

Wasserrand. Brunet V, 1398; Sabin 100944 (1709 edition); Cox II, 247 - Französ. Erstausgabe. - Lionnel Wafer (1640-1705), war ein walisischer Entdecker, Seeräuber und Privatier. Als Schiffsarzt unternahm Wafer (Waffer) mehrere Reisen in die Südsee und nach Südostasien. Schließlich ließ er sich auf Jamaica nieder um dort als Chirurg zu arbeiten. 1677 überzeugten ihn die bekannten Seeräuber John Cook und Linen bei ihnen als Arzt tätig zu werden. Bei einer Überlandreise wurde er verwundet und bei Cuna-Indianern am Istmus von Darien zurückgelassen. Er sammelte Informationen über deren Kultur, auch über ihren Schamanismus und studierte die Naturgeschichte des Istmus. Im nächsten Jahr verließ Waffer die Indianer mit dem Versprechen der Rückkehr und der Heirat der Schwester des Hauptmannes und Hunde aus England mitzubringen. 1690 war Wafer wieder in England und veröffentlichte fünf Jahre später dieses Werk. Die französische Erstauflage liegt hier vor. Wafer kehrte nicht mehr nach Zentralamerika zurück.

        Optice; sive de reflexionibus, refractionibus, inflexionibus & coloribus lucis libri tres

      London: Samuel Smith and Benjamin Walford, 1706 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. First Latin edition. 219 leaves, [14] 1-348, 1-24, [2] 1-24, 21-43 [1] pp. 19 folding engraved plates, some damp spots to first few leaves, wormtrails and holes in margins and just affecting last two or three plates, contemporary vellum, remnants of leather spine label. ---- Babson 137; Wallis 179, Norman 1589. - The first edition of OPTICKS was printed two years earlier in English and without Newton's customary use of editorial assistance. He then employed Samuel Clarke to make a Latin translation with the addition of seven new Queries. At the end of the book are two mathematical treatises, DE QUADRATURA and ENUMERATIO LINEARUM TERTII ORDINIS, which Newton added to establish his priority over Leibniz in the invention of the calculus. Next to the PRINCIPIA, the OPTICKS stands as Newton's greatest work. Much of the a OPTICKS was written thirty years earlier and finally put into print in 1704, just a few months after Newton assumed the chair as President of the Royal Society. It summarized his discoveries and theories concerning light and color, the spectrum of sunlight, the degrees of refraction associated with different colors, the color circle, the invention of the reflecting telescope, the first workable theory of the rainbow, and interference effects in conjunction with Newton's rings. It expounds his corpuscular or emission theory of light..

      Leiden, Pieter Vander Aa, 1706.. omswervingen. Van Anno 1607, tot in 't Jaar 1611. Nu aldereerst uyt 't Engelsch vertaald. Text in Dutch or Flemish, translated from the English, 1706, 8vo, approximately 180 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, vignette on title page, folding map of middle east and India, 2 folding engraved plates, printed in black letter, pages: [4], 1-61, [5], bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label to spine, new endpapers. Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.

Provenance: Scheler v. Lorenz M. Rheude with his color-lithographed armorial bookplate to front pastedown (see Schutt-Lehn 38.202). ---- I. Cushing, VI A-12; NLM/Blake, p.473; Waller 9905; Osler 572; Choulant, p.184-5; Roth 309. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION. The Augsburg printer and publisher, Andreas Maschenbaur, acquired the original woodcut blocks of Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica, to use 19 of them in his editions of 1706 and 1723. After publication of the second edition of the Fabrica in 1555, the whereabouts of these woodcut blocks remained unknown until Maschenbauer used them in the present work. The book was intended for painters. "On the title-page we find the five skulls from the principal book, at the end five other illustrations pertaining to the skulls, beside these, three skeletons, and four muscle-manikins from the same book, also four other muscle-manikins, and the two nude figures from the Epitome." (Choulant). II. Choulant, p.257; NLM/Blake, p.83. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST GERMAN EDITION, first published in Rome 1697 under the title 'Anatomia dei pittori. Cognizione dei muscoli del corpo umano per il disegno'. Cesio's anatomy for painters was published after his death (1686) by the Dutch painter-engraver Arnold van Westerhout who worked in Florence for Grandduke Ferdinand of Tuscany and came to Rome about 1700 where he also died. Cesio was a pupil of Pietro Berrettini da Cartona and lived mainly in Rome. His large designs are of great beauty and in their flowing manner reminiscent of Annibale Caracci after whom he engraved some pieces. The present 16 anatomic plates include 2 skeletons and 14 myologic plates, among them 5 complete muscle-manikins.- Visit our website for more information and additional images.

[junto a:] Notae in Jacobi Gaffarelli curiositates.

      1706-1676. . 1706 - Impreso por Benjamin Schiller/Godfried Schultz (apud Gothofredum Schultzen). Hamburgo, Alemania. . 1 Vol. . Frontispicio+portada+62 H.+290 pp.+9 H.+498 pp.+25 H. pp. Octavo. Pergamino de época. . Volumen que contiene dos obras diferentes encuadernadas conjuntamente. La primera de ellas es la edición hamburguesa de 1706 del Curiositates Inauditae de Gaffarel, sacerdote y teólogo francés, máximo representante de la Cábala Cristiana en el siglo XVII. Este movimiento trató de conciliar el cristianismo con algunos aspectos de la tradición judaica, siguiendo el sendero abierto por Ramón Llull tres siglos antes y seguido por Pico della Mirandola en el s. XV. Esta obra defiende que el hebreo era la lengua hablada por Adán o que las estrellas forman en el cielo palabras en hebreo con mensajes de Dios. Sufrió censura por parte del gobierno francés, que obligó a Gaffarel a retractarse, aunque con posterioridad su autor fue nombrado asesor de Luis XIII y posteriormente encargado por Richelieu para mediar entre católicos y calvinistas. La segunda obra es una refutación de la primera a cargo de Gregoire Michel, contemporáneo del autor y uno de sus mayores críticos, junto a Gabriel Naudé o Mersenne. El libro se presenta muy bien conservado, con un frontispicio grabado correspondiente a una edición anterior de 1678, dos láminas desplegables que muestran las claves para interpretar las estrellas mediante el alfabeto hebreo y 15 ilustraciones fuera de texto que muestran diferentes figuras mitológicas. Buen estado. .

        William Penn to James Logan, Future President of Council of Pennsylvania, Mayor of Philadelphia, Chief Justice of PA Supreme Court, and Founder of the Library Company

      1706 - Autograph Letter Signed to James Logan. n.p. [London?], June 27, 1706. 1 p., 6 1/4 x 7 1/2 in. bifolium with integral address leaf with panel in Penn's hand. Penn, writing from England, asks his trusted secretary in Philadelphia to assist Thomas Haywood regarding his lands and debts. Penn was in the midst of his own ongoing dispute about ownership of all of Pennsylvania, which had originated with the crowning of William and Mary in 1688, and trumped-up charges of treason due to Penn's championing of religious freedom, which led to an opportunity for Penn's manager to, in effect, embezzle the entire colony from him. (See below for more details). A month after Penn wrote this letter, Logan advises Penn to avoid ruin by selling the government "for a valuable consideration" as the only "probable method of clearing thy debts." Penn did not heed Logan's advice, and the court placed Penn in debtor's prison from January 1707 to August 1708. Penn eventually settled the Ford claim with a payment of £7,600, and then began negotiations to sell the colony to the Crown. Unfortunately, a series of strokes from 1711 to 1713 interrupted his negotiations, and he died in poverty. His family (after its own dispute between step-sons) retained ownership of the colony of Pennsylvania until the American Revolution. Complete Transcript 27 4 1706.[1][James] Logan /with my love, desireing thy utmost care for my Concerns, & thy comfort into the bargain,shew the bearer Thomas Haywood, wt Just Kindness thou canst, be it abt Land, or debts due to him in ye country.

Haywood[Endorsement:] William Penns Letter to his Seretary in Pennsylvania to assist Tho Hayward about Land and debts he having both ? in EnglandHistorical BackgroundPenn had founded his colony in 1681 on principles of democracy and religious freedom, and made his first visit to America in 1682, and returned to England in 1685 to aid his oppressed fellow Quakers there. He convinced King James II to allow Quakers to practice their religion in England as well as in America, but the King was soon exiled and William and Mary ascended to the throne in 1688. With Penn continuing to speak out against religious persecution, in 1690, Penn was imprisoned in the Tower of London for two weeks. In 1692 Penn was charged with treason, and Pennsylvania was taken away from him. Before going into hiding, Penn attempted to protect the colony and his interest in it by signing a deed (today it would be a considered a power of attorney - consistent with the practice of the time it was written as a sale deed, with the unwritten understanding that it was only meant to go into effect in the event of the death or disability of the transferor) to his friend and fellow-Quaker Philip Ford for the "entire province and territories" of Pennsylvania.[4] The Quakers petitioned King William for a fair trial, and eventually Penn was cleared of all charges, with his ownership restored by the king in 1694.During William Penn's second visit to the colony of Pennsylvania from 1699 to 1701, he brought James Logan with him to serve as the secretary of the colony. But Penn apparently did not re-claim his deed from Philip Ford, who died in 1702. Ford's widow soon began a lawsuit against Penn, arguing that her husband had bought Pennsylvania from Penn, and that Penn's three-year lease had expired without Penn having paid rent; she was determined to take the colony. In October 1705, Logan informed Penn of the legal troubles, and noted that the colony's Assembly resolved "to do all in their power for thine and the country's good, and will endeavour to put things in the .
