  • Brethren in Iniquity: by [ANON]
    [ANON]
    Brethren in Iniquity: Or, the Confederacy of Papists with Sectaries, for the Destroying of the True Religion, as by Law Establish'd, plainly detected.

    London: Randal Taylor, 1690. Although the Popish Plot was ten years gone by the time this polemic was published, anti-Catholic feeling still ran high. This pamphlet purports to show all of the ways that Papists had attempted to undermine the Church of England since the Reformation. As such, this is almost a literature review of the previous hundred years, summarising Bishop Burnett, Stillingfleet and others, whilst quoting from Parliament and Catholic peers. It is followed by A LETTER OF THE MINISTERS Of the CITY of LONDON, Presented the First of January, 1645. to the Reverend Assembly of Divines sitting at Westminster, by Authority of Parliament, against TOLERATION. [4], 67, [1] pp.

    Condition: This pamphlet has been abstracted from a collection, and so appears as a disbound item - with the binding marks and stab marks to the spine. No wrapper or cover (now held in a protective sleeve. The top edge of the first couple of pages is beginning to come away - although the binding is still holding securely. A touch of darkening to the front and rear pages, less so inside. There are pencil ticks throughout the work in the margins.

Owner's inscriptions to the inside front board and to the 2nd end paper.

Also lacking is leaf 3I2 (page 99/100) with the text here also lacking. Bizarrely, a full page plate, dating from 1814 has been laid in to face page 275. This is an engraving by Wm Craig and L. Brown, showing national liberty crushing the nations of Europe. This is perhaps laid in here as it is opposite an homily against Disobedience and Wilfull rebellion. This long homily, published in various forms, is important, as it was part of the celebrations following the failure of the rebellions against Queen Elizabeth. To the end of the work is "A thankesgiving for the suppression of the last rebellion." 1-98, [vi], 1-98 101-320 [iv].

He advocated that government protect liberty and property, the importance of toleration and of being a good Christian. Being a good citizen led to being a good Christian and vice versa. The emphasis on Toleration is particularly pertinent, given how soon after the French Revolution this text was written. xvi, 445 (1) pp.,

    Amsterdam: Jac a. Wetstein: 1754. Complete with index, autobiography and epitaph of Erasmus at Basel. Engraved frontispiece of Erasmus with three doctors. Dedication to Frobenius. Recent full mottled leather with gilt date, and title to a burgundy band. The binding is spotless and without flaws. The book itself is clean and tidy throughout, with fractional darkening only. A lovely copy. Erasmus expressed his views indirectly through the Colloquia, which had started as schoolboy dialogues but became a vehicle for commentary. For example, in the colloquy "Inquisitio de fide" (1522) a Catholic finds to his surprise that Lutherans accept all the dogmas of the faith, that is, the articles of the Apostles' Creed. The implication is that bitter disputes like those over papal infallibility or Luther's doctrine of predestination are differences over mere opinion, not over dogmas binding on all the faithful.
    Johann Heinrich Wettstein (1649–1726), had had an important printing and publishing business. From his office excellent editions of the classics were issued, as well as Gerard of Maastricht's edition of the Greek Testament. Complet avec index, autobiographie et épitaphe d'Erasme à Bâle. Frontispice gravé d'Erasme avec trois docteurs. Dédicace à Frobenius. Plein cuir marbré récent avec date dorée, et titre à un bandeau bordeaux. La reliure est impeccable et sans défauts. Le livre lui-même est propre et bien rangé, avec un noircissement partiel seulement. Un bel exemplaire. Erasmus a exprimé ses opinions indirectement à travers les Colloques, qui avaient commencé comme des dialogues d'écoliers mais sont devenus un véhicule de commentaire. Par exemple, dans le colloque « Inquisitio de fide » (1522) un catholique découvre à sa grande surprise que les luthériens acceptent tous les dogmes de la foi, c'est-à-dire les articles du Symbole des Apôtres. L'implication est que les différends amers comme ceux sur l'infaillibilité papale ou la doctrine de la prédestination de Luther sont des différences sur une simple opinion, pas sur des dogmes liant tous les fidèles.
    Johann Heinrich Wettstein (1649-1726), avait eu une importante entreprise d'impression et d'édition. De son bureau ont été publiées d'excellentes éditions des classiques, ainsi que l'édition du Testament grec de Gérard de Maastricht. [1-10], 11-524 (iv) pp.
