Hardcover. Small 12mo. Two books bound together. Full contemporary vellum. 1.) J-C. Scoti, Monarchia solipsorum. Second Edition. pp. 158, [4]. First printed in Venice, 1645. This second edition was printed by Elzevier. Pages are generally clean. A bibliographical note (listing several references) and an old ownership inscription - "ex bibliotheca Kripperdorfia" - are written in old hand on the front blank. The Monarchia solipsorum is bitter satire written against the Jesuits which, in its day, caused quite a sensation. The author describes a secret society of "Solipsen" (those who wish to govern entirely) understood to mean the Jesuits. The supposed laws, secret instructions and clandestine operations of the organization are discussed. The author's name is given as Lucius Cornelius Europaeus which is a pseudonym. Authorship is usually attributed to an ex-Jesuit named Jules Clement Scoti. Some, however, believe Melchior Inchofer (who's name appeared on a later edition) is the true author. The book also contains a dedication to the Greek scholar Leo Allatius by Timotheus Cursantius.
