London-Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1715. Book. The first edited edition of Spenser. Bound in calf with gilt frame and lettering. Edmund Spenser (c. 1552 13 January 1599) was an important English poet best known for The Faerie Queene, an epic poem celebrating, through fantastical allegory, the Tudor dynasty and Elizabeth I. He is recognised as one of the premier craftsmen of Modern English verse in its infancy. This edition was compiled by the poet John Hughes (1677-1720) who was an English poet noted for his editing of and commentary on the works of Edmund Spenser. Writing at the very end of 17th Century and at the beginning of the 18th, he also translated French drama and poetry, including Molire. With engravings by Ludwick Du GuernierCondition: The binding of the text blocks are tight and firm, however, volume vi's front board is missing and some of the hinges are strained and starting.

Fellow says theses Malebranche (in search of the truth) lead to the Thomist theory of the determination of our actions. Malebranche said that our actions are free, God can not be determined. Malebranche defines the very first page of physical premotion: 'A physical standby, before the determination of the will, and makes it freely determined, and with indifference.' This is a work of importance on Free Will and physical determination of the Will. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Purshull, Conyers:
[London? 1715].. Small folio broadside. Dbd. Closely cropped, with loss of first line of title and portion of printed signature. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Overall very good. An extremely rare petitionary leaflet relating to the historic longitude prize, evidently printed in the first two years after the creation of the Board of Longitude. In 1714, responding to a problem that had continued to beleaguer sailors and cartographers well into the age of navigation, Parliament passed the Longitude Act, establishing awards from £10,000 to £20,000 for developing an accurate method of determining longitude, and a panel, the Board of Longitude, to judge submissions. The author of the present document, Conyers Purshull (for whom no biographical information has been discovered), had submitted a plan for finding longitude at sea by "measuring the Distance which the Ship runs from Place to Place, with a Wheel fixed thro' the Bottom of a Boat towed by the Ship." His plan was rejected by the Board based on three major objections, for which Purshull offers various solutions here. The petition was discovered in a bound volume of similar documents, nearly all of which date with some certainty to 1714 and 1715, and there is no reason to believe that this document is an exception. It is among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC records no copies; OCLC lists one, at Yale.

[Gregory, Robert]:
[Dublin? circa 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [2]pp., including table and printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Last line of text on recto and half of docket title on verso lost to close trimming. Light foxing. Overall very good. A rare petitionary leaflet relating to the Siege of Derry and fraudulent claims made to Parliament for compensation. The author, Captain Robert Gregory, defended Londonderry during the siege by Jacobite forces during the Williamite War in Ireland in 1688-9, as certified by Governors John Michelburne and George Walker, in a document dated December 10, 1689 and reproduced at the conclusion of this petition. When, a quarter-century later, Gregory arrived in London to seek the pay due for his service, he discovered that massive fraud had been committed by various people claiming to have served as officers in the same siege. He prints here an abstract of pay due to the Garrison of Londonderry for the four months of the siege (Parliament was currently mistakenly basing their pay on six months) and decries the frauds' cost to the true defenders and victims of the city: "[S]everal Thousand Persons suffered by that Siege; many of them now Old and Lame, and many Widows, and the Orphans of them that died there, are now in great Misery and Distress: All whose Hopes and Dependence is on this Honourable House for Relief; which otherwise must perish, after 26 Years patient Attendance.

[Burke, John]:
[London? ca. 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early stab holes in left margin. Moderately soiled and foxed. Else very good. A petition to Parliament by Montagu Venables- Bertie, Earl of Abingdon, and Robert Shirley, Earl Ferrers, the guardians of the children of John Burke, 9th Earl of Clanricarde. Burke had fought in Ireland in the army of James II against William of Orange and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Aughrim in 1691. His estates in Ireland were forfeited and his children given to the care of the Earl of Abingdon and Earl Ferrers with instructions that they receive a Protestant education. After Burke was acquitted by an act of Parliament in 1701 and restored to his estates, the taxes that had accrued on his property hindered the flow of payments the English lords required for the care and education of his children. In the present document those lords seek a sale of Burke's lands to fund a situation "whereby the younger Sons of the Earl will be educated in the Protestant Religion, the old Incumbrances which Papists have upon the Estate will be discharges, and the Protestant Interest strengthened." An early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. Rare, with ESTC recording only one copy, at Oxford.

[Taggert, William]:
[London? 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Most of first line of caption title lost to close trimming. Light foxing. Overall very good. A rare political leaflet relating to the Reverend Doctor John Leslie, a Williamite landholder in Ireland who claimed to have performed "extraordinary service" in the Siege of Derry. Shortly after the Glorious Revolution, King William made a grant to Leslie of £400 per year, which Leslie, according to William Taggert, the author of this leaflet, maneuvered into a grant of forfeited Irish estates worth nearly six times that amount per year. Following a recent act of Parliament recalling William's Irish grants, Leslie appealed to the Parliament to allow him to keep the estates because of his heroic service at Londonderry. He persuaded Parliament, writes Taggert, that "he was the Man who had saved Londonderry out of the Hands of the Papists, when besieged by the late King James's Army, and that by his Management and extraordinary Service in that city, the War was shorten'd, and this Kingdom saved thereby from a vast expense of Blood and Treasure." Taggert, however, declares that Leslie had never in fact been at Londonderry during the siege and had defrauded the British government of fifty thousand pounds in land, when actual defenders of the city and widows and orphans were living in extreme states of poverty and deprivation. He writes that during Queen Anne's reign he had traveled from Ireland to London several times to expose Leslie but, "for want of … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Hertford Elections]:
[London? 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [2]pp., including printed docket title on p.2. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A rare leaflet relating to the controversial Hertford Parliamentary contest between Charles Caesar, Richard Goulston, Sir Thomas Clarke, and John Boteler in 1715. During the first quarter of the 18th century, debates raged over issues of election fraud in the borough of Hertford, which elected two members of the House of Commons. Disagreements over whether non-resident freemen could cast valid votes led to various abuses, charges and countercharges, and, in the election of 1715, an overturning of the election results by petition. The present document defends the election of Caesar, a prominent Tory and Jacobite, and his long- time ally Goulston over Clarke and Boteler, both Whigs. Clarke and Boteler petitioned against the results, declaring that the mayor of Hertford refused legal votes of "occasional residents" cast for them. This leaflet argues in response that the mayor acted within bounds set by Parliament and that Clarke and Boteler sought election through threats and bribery and points out that the "first Time Occasional Inhabitants were brought in at Hertford, was at the Election in 1710; they were brought in by Sit Thomas Clarke, and his Friends; he sent his own Waggon down the Goods to Furnish Houses, and Roomes, for such Voters, Two or Three Days before that Election." Clarke and Boteler were ultimately successful in overturning the election, however, and joined the historic 1715 sweep of the Whigs in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moll, Herman (c. 1654 - 1732)
London, 1715. THE FIRST MAP TO DEMONSTATE THE POTENTIAL COHESION OF THE BRITISH COLONIES IN AMERICA Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 42" x 25" Reference: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 135. Herman Moll's "New and Exact Map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on Ye Continent of North America" was the first large-scale map to show English developments in North America and the first to show the American postal routes. This particular example is particularly notable for its sumptuous original color, which is of a quality rarely seen in English maps from this period. Moll was one of the most well-known cartographers in England in the generation before Thomas Jefferys came to prominence in the mid-eighteenth century. A native of the Netherlands, he came to England around 1680, settling in London, where he established his own shop in 1689. Moll's style grew increasingly distinctive as his career progressed, and his maps remain noted for their elaborate design and clarity of lettering. He was also known for including numerous legends on his maps that give historical information about the geography, inhabitants and general features of the areas shown. Moll's impressive body of maps and atlases constitute some of the finest examples of early British cartography and a summation of British geographical knowledge at the time. Meticulous and finely engraved, this map includes some of the most thorough and exact detail to grace any eighteenth-century map. It is notable for being among the first and m … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Bugg, Francis]:
[London? 1715].. Broadsheet, 14 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches. [2]pp. including printed docket title. Printed in two columns. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of lower inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A scarce and highly informative letter to Parliament offering a critical history of the Quakers' "solemn affirmation." In 1696, after experiencing decades of exclusion and imprisonment for conscientiously refusing to take loyalty and court oaths, Quakers were granted the right by Parliament to take a "solemn affirmation" in legal situations in place of an actual oath. Over the next two decades many Quakers continued to object over the use of God's name in the affirmation, and various non-Quakers continued to express their resentment over the entire matter. In 1715 a bill was under consideration in Parliament to renew indefinitely the Quakers' right to the affirmation. The author of this document, Francis Bugg, recommends against passing it "Without a Universal Obligation upon them...without a Penalty upon every Quaker that shall neglect or refuse to take it in due Form," pointing to hypocrisy and disingenuousness he has perceived among that community. Bugg (1640-1724?) was a Quaker apostate who published numerous writings against Quakerism from about 1680 through the 1720s. Dated May 5, 1715, and signed in print by F. Bugg.

[Soap]:
[London? 1715].. Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. An early lobbying leaflet petitioning Parliament to lift the duty on domestic green soap. The authors argue that the soap is being twice-taxed, as the oil and potashes from which it is made amounts to fifty percent of the duty already being paid on the soap itself, and that the resulting high prices have created a black market in soap. The petition is among the earliest examples of commercial lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons around the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715.

Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament to review the case of Robert Blackburne and others connected to the so-called "Lancashire Plot" who were imprisoned in London without charges, trial, or opportunity for habeas corpus. Robert Blackburne (d. 1748), a scion of prominent Roman Catholic families in Lancashire, and his companions were arrested in 1695 on suspicion of connection to an assassination plot against William III and held at Newgate prison, where "no person but our Jaylor and his Servants were permitted to speak with us. We were denied the Use of Pen, Ink, and Paper, debarred of all Comforts and Conveniences, and under great Hardships as to the very Necessaries of Life; out Confinement being so strict, that even our Food and Linnen were searched, to prevent the least Communication." When after many years of being held without trial they finally managed to enter a request for habeas corpus, their petition was denied because they had not claimed it during the first parliamentary session after their imprisonment. This, they note, had been impossible to do, as they had had no access to pen, paper, or friends beyond the prison walls. Around 1715, following the accession of King George I and the election of a new Whig Parliament, the prisoners learned of a new bill in Parliament which they hoped would at last secure thei … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Fishing]:
[London? 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A rare petition to Parliament relating to a current bill concerning the mesh size of fishing nets used along the coast of Great Britain. The fishing lobby here argues that the clause limiting mesh size to four inches, except for use with "Herrings, Pilchards, Sprats and Sardenas," will prevent the catching of various larger fish and lobster and thereby ruin much of the national fishing industry. They claim that the fishmongers, who support the regulation, would prefer "to bring in Foreign Fish caught in Foreign Bottoms" and profit from the higher prices.

[British Elections]:
[Leicester? 1715].. 10pp. Dbd. Early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good, untrimmed and unopened. A fascinating political pamphlet relating to charges of fraud, intimidation, and violence in the Leicestershire election of February 1714. The author of the pamphlet rebuts recent charges made in the "Flying Posts and other printed News Papers" that William Baresby, Under-Sheriff and overseer of the election, was attacked by partisans of the two winning candidates, attacked and forced from the polling station, and sent fleeing with a bounty on his head. It is responded that numerous witnesses can verify that no such violence occurred and that Baresby, in fact, had attempted to commit voting fraud in favor of his friends, George Ashby and Thomas Bird, who were overwhelmingly losing (and ultimately lost) to the baronets Sir Thomas Cave and Sir Jeffrey Palmer. Baresby's injuries, further, are said to have been caused by a drunken night at a pub: after cordially drinking wine with the baronets, Baresby "left the Court, and went to a Publick House hard by, call'd the Round- Head's Inn, with some of his Friends, he Supt there, and drank plentifully of strong Ale, and was very merry; and a young Woman Daughter of the Mistress of the House, coming about her occasions to the Kitchen Fire, where he was Drinking, he fell to Kissing her very eagerly, and in that action (not regarding the Fire that was near him) burnt his Coat...and it is Credibly reported in the Country, that this burnt Coat has been shewn, as a Proof of the Dangers and Sufferings he underwent, for faithfully … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Maine]:
[London? ca. 1715].. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Small folio. Antique-style three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Ornamental upper border. Minor foxing. Very good. A rare and early petition relating to British settlement in the eastern part of present-day Maine. The authors refer to petitioning "his Majesty in Council, on the 6th Day of December last, for having a Colony settled between New England and Nova Scotia" with "over one thousand disbanded men" and to be funded with the proceeds of a proposed coinage operation. The only copy of this document listed by OCLC and ESTC is at the New-York Historical Society, which estimates merely that the document was printed during the 1700s. The historical context, the text cited above, and discovery of this broadsheet among similar petitions dating almost exclusively to 1714 and 1715, however, make 1715 an extremely likely date of printing. In the Treaty of Utrecht (1713) the French ceded the land east of the Kennebec River (presumably the area in question here) to the British; this event and the reference to "disbanded soldiers" suggest that the War of the Spanish Succession had recently ended, which it finally did in 1714. George I succeeded Queen Anne in late 1714, meaning that the petitioning of "December last" could not have been earlier than that year. With the new monarchy and a major upheaval in the House of Commons following the general election of 1715, petitionary literature distributed in the lobby of Parliament surged, with this document almost certainly among the examples from … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gregory, Robert]
[Dublin, 1715. Small folio broadsheet. [2]pp., including table and printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Last line of text on recto and half of docket title on verso lost to close trimming. Light foxing. Overall very good. A rare petitionary leaflet relating to the Siege of Derry and fraudulent claims made to Parliament for compensation. The author, Captain Robert Gregory, defended Londonderry during the siege by Jacobite forces during the Williamite War in Ireland in 1688-9, as certified by Governors John Michelburne and George Walker, in a document dated December 10, 1689 and reproduced at the conclusion of this petition. When, a quarter-century later, Gregory arrived in London to seek the pay due for his service, he discovered that massive fraud had been committed by various people claiming to have served as officers in the same siege. He prints here an abstract of pay due to the Garrison of Londonderry for the four months of the siege (Parliament was currently mistakenly basing their pay on six months) and decries the frauds' cost to the true defenders and victims of the city: "[S]everal Thousand Persons suffered by that Siege; many of them now Old and Lame, and many Widows, and the Orphans of them that died there, are now in great Misery and Distress: All whose Hopes and Dependence is on this Honourable House for Relief; which otherwise must perish, after 26 Years patient Attendance."

[Hertford Elections]:
[London? 1715].. 3pp. plus printed docket title on verso of second leaf. Dbd. Folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of left margin excised, with no loss to text. Light foxing, else near fine. A rare and interesting document relating to the ongoing controversy between Sir Thomas Clarke, Charles Caesar, and others in their elections to Parliament during the early 18th century. Charles Caesar (1673-1741), a Jacobite and Tory from a prominent Hertford family, first entered the House of Commons in 1701 as a member for the borough of Hertford. Subsequent elections for the same seat resulted in petitions to the House of Commons from opponents over conflicting views on whether non-resident freemen could cast valid votes. After serving with Sir Thomas Clarke in 1707-08, Caesar lost to Clarke in 1708, regained his seat from Clarke in 1710, and, after being re- elected in the important 1715 election that swept the Whigs into power, lost his seat by petition amidst charges of bribery and fraud. Caesar won his seat back from Clarke in 1722, whereupon a year later his election was again overturned and Clarke took his place. In 1727, Caesar ran instead to stand for the county of Hertfordshire, a position he won and held for the remainder of his life. An early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC records only three copies, two at Oxford and one at Harvard.

Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A rare document lobbying Parliament for payment to Francis Beaumont, who supplied British troops in Flanders with fodder during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1711 and 1712. Beaumont had contracted with the Duke of Marlborough to provide the forage with the understanding that he would receive an advance payment before the winter of 1711 and the remaining payment due one month after delivery. Although he never received the advance payment, Beaumont still provided the forage, yet still had not received any payment three years after the fact. As a result, Beaumont, "as well as many more families in Holland, Flanders and Brabant," were left in crippling debt and faced ruin. An early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715.

Den blev en viktiga handbok och utgavs i en mängd upplagor under 1600- och 1700-talet. En svensk översättning utkom 1747. Den första utgåvan med Emmanuel Webers tillägg utkom 1700, och porträttet, som är graverat av Peter Fehr, tillkom till 1705 års utgåva. Emmanuel Weber (1659-1726), var tysk jurist i Giessen.
