Philosophia S. Scripturae interpres; exercitatio paradoxa.
Eleutheropoli [Amsterdam]: no printer/no publisher [J. Rieuwertsz] 4to (20 cm;7.9"). [12], 105, [1 (blank)] pp., [7 (2 final blanks) ff.. 1666 Uncommon first edition with a false imprint: Important hermeneutical treatise, arguing that the Bible should be interpreted through Cartesian rationality. Originally published anonymously, the work was for some time attributed to Benedictus de Spinoza, who was both a personal friend and mentor to Meijer (also sometimes called Ludwig or Louis Meyer); it rapidly gained a fair amount of notoriety, was condemned, inspired a number of rebuttals and defenses, went through several editions in both Latin and Dutch, and influenced Spinoza's writings. Famously, it called for a response from Spinoza, nothing less than his Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, published anonymously in 1670. Provenance: Ownership signature of "A. Schülin," Amsterdam, [16]92. An undeciphered 18th-century ownership "ex libris" opposite the title-page. Contemporary vellum over boards, binding lightly age-toned. Gatherings F, G, H, & I browned or foxed, otherwise a very nice copy, with a few old notes and marks in pencil.
