        THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY, AND SUPREAM HEAD OF THE CHURCH. A SERMON, DELIVERED, IN PUBLICK, TO THE ASSEMBLY OF MINISTERS, AT THEIR ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION, IN BOSTON; WHICH WAS FOLLOWED WITH A COLLECTION FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE GOSPEL. JUNE 1. 1738.

      S. Kneeland and T. Green,, Boston: 1738 - [4], 34, [2 blanks] pp, with the half title [chipped at blank lower margin]. Disbound, scattered foxing and light wear, Good+. A Harvard graduate and Congregational Minister in Marblehead for over fifty years, Barnard was, according to Charles Chauncy, "equalled by few in regard either of readiness of invention, liveliness of imagination, or strength and clearness of reasoning" [so quoted in DAB]. His early work, 'Ashton's Memorial', was "a worthy and early American addition to the literature of castaways" [II Streeter Sale 671]. Here Barnard makes a powerful argument for the self-government of New England congregations, with obvious implications for self-government of American political institutions. Religious self-government profoundly differed from Anglican practices across the Atlantic. New England congregations reflect the early practice of "the Primitive Church." For "the first three hundred Years after Christ, the Churches consisted of particular Congregations, each having their own Pastor, to minister unto them in the holy Things of God; and every such Assembly of professed Christians. had entire Power within it self, to manage the Affairs of the Kingdom of Christ, and the holy Discipline belonging to it, without any Dependance upon any superiour Power upon Earth." This "was the Principle of our Fathers, who laid the Foundation of these Churches, in this Wilderness."Evans 4219.

Richard Bentley, universitaire et théologien renommé, correspondant et vulgarisateur de Newton, livre une critique qui fera date de "l'ouvrage-manifeste" d’Antony Collins paru la même année. Réfutation méthodique et érudite, reprenant point par point les arguments d’Antony Collins et critiquant ses sources, il tente de démontrer que le déisme de l’auteur du ‘Discours sur la liberté de penser’ n’est qu’un athéisme masqué.

These for a long time were the most widely read and prized agricultural essays in America. With President Ezra Stiles of Yale College, he introduced silk culture into the colony" - DAB. EVANS 4241.

An election sermon by Jared Eliot, based on a sermon delivered before the General Assembly of Connecticut on May 11, 1738, and published the same year in New London. Eliot graduated from Yale College in 1706 and was ordained as pastor of the Congregational Church in Killingworth (now Clinton) in 1709. He served in that position until his death in 1763. In addition to his religious role in the community, Eliot was actively involved in the natural sciences, medicine, and agriculture. "For more than forty years he never failed to preach at least once every Sunday, and was highly regarded in the colony as a minister and adviser in church matters. Without neglecting the duties of this office, he pursued his interest in natural science and achieved eminence in widely different fields...He bought considerable tracts of land, experimented wisely in their improvement, and embodied his results in an ESSAY ON FIELD HUSBANDRY IN NEW ENGLAND, published in six parts at intervals in the years from 1748 to 1759. These for a long time were the most widely read and prized agricultural essays in America. With President Ezra Stiles of Yale College, he introduced silk culture into the colony" - DAB. EVANS 4241.

        Apology for the Liberties of the Churches in New England

      1738. First Edition . Signed. MATHER, Samuel. An Apology for the Liberties of the Churches in New England: To which is prefix'd, A Discourse concerning Congregational Churches. Boston: T. Fleet for Daniel Henchman, 1738. Octavo, mid-20th century three-quarter green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $1800.First edition of Samuel MatherÂ’s vigorous defense of congregational church polity, inscribed opposite the title page, “For the Honorable Mr. Dummer from his most respectful obliged Friend and obedient Servant, The Author,” handsomely bound.Son of renowned Puritan clergyman Cotton Mather, Samuel ""represents the end of the 'Mather Dynasty' and its political and theological influence in New England"" (ANB). In this volume, he appeals to Scripture and patristic authorities to defend congregational churches' self-governance—including the rights to choose their officers and ordain their ministers, to set standards for receiving Communion, and to exercise private and public discipline—as the ecclesiastical polity ""instituted by their great Lawgiver and KingÂ… In their conforming to that Institution with inviolable Fidelity, they shine with superior Glory to others."" Ornamental woodcut head- and tailpieces; small historiated woodcut initial on page 1. Evans 4275. Sabin 46791. Old owner signature to title page. ""The Honorable Mr. Dummer"" of the inscription may be William Dummer, early 18th-century acting governor of Massachusetts who commanded armed forces during battles with the Wabanaki Confederacy on the Maine frontier (sometimes called ""Governor Dummer's War""). ""Notwithstanding his resolution of the war, Dummer's success in office depended upon currying favor in England and not in AmericaÂ… In 1725 Dummer approved the meeting of a synod of Congregational ministers in spite of the opposition of the local Anglican clergy. The Anglicans complained to the duke of Newcastle, who declared the meeting an infringement upon royal prerogatives and ordered the cancellation of the synod. Dummer's term as acting governor ended with the death of George I and the nomination of William Burnet to the governorship"" (ANB). A man ""of firm religious faith,"" Dummer ""appears to have been on terms of cordial friendship"" with Mather (Cleveland, First Century of Dummer Academy, 14). Dummer subscribed to Mather's 1729 biography of Cotton Mather.Scattered light foxing, dampstaining. Spine and extreme edges toned to brown. An extremely good inscribed presentation copy.

        Pharmacopoea Hagana ex auctoritate magistratus poliatrorum opera instaurata et aucta.The Hague, Frederik Boucquet, 1738. 4to. With frontispiece engraved by David Coster and 2 folding engraved tables of pharmacological symbols with their meanings. Contemporary vellum.

      Daems & Vandewiele, p. 113; STCN (9 copies). Second edition, extensively revised and in the original Latin, of the official pharmacopoeia of the municipality of The Hague in the Netherlands. The index lists about 500 medicines. In some cases the text simply gives the name of the medicine with a reference to a published source, in others it gives a full recipe with the ingredients and instructions for their preparation. The 2-page engraved table, printed on two leaves that fold out so that one can consult them while reading the book, shows 90 symbols and gives their meanings, in alphabetical order. The magistrates and Collegium Medicorum of The Hague initiated the first edition, compiled by a committee of doctors from the Collegium, but even before it was published there were already complaints about its many and serious errors. They concluded that it was too late to correct them, but urged their colleagues to correct them in their own copies and they would be set right in a future edition, but in the event they had to wait 80 years for Boucquet's present second edition, with the three plates newly engraved for it.With owner's label. With an occasional minor brown spot and some faint offsetting, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows 1 small worm hole and is very slightly rubbed, but still very good. An important and attractive pharmacopoeia with an engraved frontispiece showing Asklepios and exotic plants.

Rare dissertation by Goethe's father, a legal treatise on the law inheritance according to Roman and German law.

The poet Goethe would later follow in his father's footsteps and closely repeat his education. - Some browning near the beginning, otherwise a very clean and crisp copy of this very rare work.
