1 A Compleat History of the Whole Proceedings of the Parliament of Great Britain Against Dr. Henry Sacheverell: With His Tryal Before the House of Peers, for High Crimes and Misdemeanors
London: J. Baker, 1710. A Compleat History of the Whole Proceedings of the Parliament of Great Britain Against Dr. Henry Sacheverell with His Tryal Before the House of Peers for High Crimes and Misdemeanors; the Reasons of Those Lords That Enter'd Their Protests; etc. London: J. Baker, 1710. 12mo, contemporary calf with five raised bands and gilt lettering and decoration on spine.. An important document for the history of the Anglican Church. Sacheverell had attacked the Queen, the Whigs and the Bishop of Salisbury in two controversial sermons. He was then summoned before the House of Lords for trial. He was judged guilty and suspended for three years; and the two sermons ordered to be burned at the Royal Exchange. This made him a martyr in the eyes of the populace and (along with heavy taxes on Londoners) resulted in several riots in London and other areas of the country. The rioting in turn led to the downfall of the government ministry later that year and the passing of the Riot Act in 1714. This treatise contains the most important speeches of the month-long trial and a list of the individual peers with their decision for or against Sacheverell. Covers are edgeworn with several small stains, but generally clean and tight; partial separation inside front cover at edge of paste-down but has not detached. Text block clean and tight with only minimal toning and little foxing..

5 [ENGLISH CIVIL WAR, 1642] TWO TRACTS: A machavillian plot, or A caution for England / A declaration a...for the disarming of all popish recusants...
London: A.N. for Ed. Husbands and I. Franke, 1642. A machavillian plot, or A caution for England, presented in a time when princes were so pious and judges durst bee valiant to declare against vunhonest slaverie. Attributed to Sir Robert Heath. London: printed Anno Dom. 1642; printed wrappers. 14 pp. Good. 6 copies in OCLC. ##### A declaration of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament : for the disarming of all popish recusants, and that it shall be lawfull for any of His Majesties subjects to seize upon the persons of all such as shall execute the illegall Commission of array : together with a declaration of the Lords and Commons in Parliament that all persons whatsoever which shall assist His Majesty in this vvar with horse, arms, or money shall be traytors to His Majesty, the Parliament, and kingdom. London: Printed by A.N. for Ed. Husbands and I. Franke ..., August 24, 1642 8 pp. 6 copies in OCLC. ##### When Charles I came to the English throne in 1625, he inherited the rocky relationship his father had with Parliament. Charles I was a strong believer in the divine right of kings and resented Parliamentary objections to his tax-raising efforts and his marriage to a Spanish Catholic princess. In 1629, Charles locked the doors to Parliament and refused to allow them to meet. By 1640, however, Charles needed Parliament to approve new taxes so he could continue his fight against Scottish rebels. Parliament’s demands that Charles curb his power in exchange for approving taxes, and public criticisms of the king and his marriage to a Catholic by some members of Parliament led Charles to call for the arrest of five of his most vocal critics in the spring of 1642. Parliament members had been tipped off of the impending arrests and managed to flee to safety. Over the next months, tensions increased as both sides raised forces. They met in battle at Edgehill on October 23, 1642. Over the next ten years, war ravaged the country as the Parliamentarians (also known as the roundheads) slowly gained ground over the Royalists (also known as the cavaliers), ultimately resulting in the trial and execution of Charles I, the exile of his son Charles II, and the establishment of the English Commonwealth under the rule of Oliver Cromwell.

The atlas is illustrated with 105 plates by Gerard de Lairesse, showing the human figure both in living attitudes and as dissected cadavers. The book was later plagiarized by English surgeon William Cowper for his Anatomy of the Humane Bodies (1698), which gave no credit to either Bidloo or de Lairesse. This led to a number of vitriolic exchanges between Bidloo and Cowper, including several pamphlets published in each anatomist's defense. William III, Dutch stadholder and king of England, asked Bidloo to become his personal physician in 1695. The king died in his arms on 8 March 1702..

88 d'Hohlbach, BaronCommon Sense: or, Natural Ideas Opposed to Supernatural
8vo, full-calf, 204 pp. Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach (8 December 1723 – 21 January 1789) was a French-German author, philosopher, encyclopedist and a prominent figure in the French Enlightenment. He is best known for his atheism and for his voluminous writings against religion, the most famous of them being The System of Nature (1770), which presented a core of radical ideas that prompted the Catholic Church in France to threaten the crown with withdrawal of financial support unless it effectively suppressed the circulation of the book. The list of people writing refutations of the work was long. The Roman Catholic Church had its pre-eminent theologian Nicolas-Sylvestre Bergier write a refutation of the Système titled Examen du matérialisme (Materialism examined). Voltaire hastily seized his pen to refute the philosophy of the Système in the article "Dieu" in his Dictionnaire philosophique, while Frederick the Great also drew up an answer to it. Its principles are summed up in a more popular form in this present volume "Common Sense", which was first published in Amsterdam in 1772. This translation into English is the first American edition. Fair-Good: text block is clean and tight with light foxing throughout. Penciled marginalia on some pages. Front hinge is partially split. Covers heavily rubbed and chipped with 1-1/2" split at top and bottom of front spine. Pasted inside the front cover is a 19th century advertisement for another book entitled Common Sense, by John Meslier. While the condition is not great, the work is quite scarce..

Tan paper wrappers with glassine dust jacket, 11 text pages, followed by 10 color plates and 30 duotone plates; in tan cardboard slipcase. Text is in French. The color plates are protected with tissue guards and are fine overall; however, the two plates used as frontispiece are detached and trimmed approx. ½” at bottom -- but still with very healthy margins. The duotone plates are fine, but they were not tissue-guarded and several have toning or browning to the margins. The front and back covers are good, still in their original glassine dustjacket -- however there is a 1” closed tear at mid-spine. The glassine jacket is browned with several tears on spine. The slipcase is toned on spine and edges with some light soiling, , 3” split at top rear..
