    A Country Gentleman [MENCE, Richard].
    A Full View of the Roman Catholic Question.

    Edition: First Edition

    London: 1813. An Anti-Catholic pamphlet, printed by J.J. Stockdale. An examination of the Claims of Roman Catholics, particularly those in Ireland, and concluding that "Too much is already conceded to the Papists." The initials W.L.J. appear in ink to the top of the title page. There are some annotations in ink throughout the text. These are in a contemporary hand, and appear to be proofing corrections - changing the grammar, correcting errors, and altering some footnotes. Perhaps this copy was being prepared for a second publication? If so, it came to nothing, as Copac cites only two holdings of this issue, with no others cited.Good clean, but with no wrappers (if any). This was once part of a larger work,…

Perhaps this copy was being prepared for a second publication? If so, it came to nothing, as Copac cites only two holdings of this issue, with no others cited.Good clean, but with no wrappers (if any). This was once part of a larger work, and has been removed from this - but was published alone (with price, printers details and colophon here). There is a touch of darkening to the outside pages. Internally clean, with the annotations as described above. This work was published anonymously, and there is no reference on Copac or in bibliographies of anonymous literature to any author. However, the name Richard Mence Esq. is written in a contemporary hand alongside the stated "Country Gentleman" This would certainly fit well. Richard Mence was a Barrister, at Middle Temple, who went on to write about the Law of Libel. He was active in writing at this time, and his dedication in the Law of Libel, was to those who oppose "Disloyal and Seditious Principles" These almost certainly included Catholic Emancipation. With his awareness of Libel laws, he was perhaps wise to remain anonymous! 49 [i]. pp

    [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. This pamphlet has been abstracted from a collection, and so appears as…

The second part (Coninciano le Lettioni) has a separate pagination, but was always intended to be part of the same work, the main part finishing the register at Nn8 - the continuation beginning Aaa. There are a large number of woodcuts throughout, and each new date / lesson, has a historiated capital. A very nice copy. The vellum binding is somewhat darkened and with a little marking, but is still flexible and has no cracks to it. The hand written spine label is still legible. Internally, clean and tidy throughout. There is a little darkening to the pages with the odd page having foxing spots. A few of the pages have tiny nicks to the edges and there is a tiny amount of worm damage to the rear of the book, but none affecting the text. Overall a very nice copy of this work. This is a reprint of this work. There were numerous editions, and variations of the work by different publishers. This work is translated by Remigio Fiorentino. His real name was Remigio Nannini. He was born in Florence (Firenze) Circa 1521 He died in 1581, and was a Dominican. This was his most popular work. Angelieri published his edition from 1590.

Introduction de l'éditeur, jours saints de l'année (avec une petite gravure sur bois pour chaque mois), contenu et texte. La pagination va jusqu'à la page 572. La deuxième partie (Coninciano le Lettioni) a une pagination séparée, mais a toujours été destinée à faire partie du même ouvrage, la partie principale terminant le registre à Nn8 - la suite commençant Aaa. Il y a un grand nombre de gravures sur bois partout, et chaque nouvelle date/leçon, a un chapiteau historié. Un très bel exemplaire. La reliure en vélin est un peu foncée et avec un peu de marquage, mais est toujours flexible et n'a pas de fissures. L'étiquette du dos écrite à la main est toujours lisible. Intérieurement, propre et bien rangé. Il y a un peu de noircissement sur les pages avec la page impaire ayant des taches de rousseur. Quelques pages ont de minuscules entailles sur les bords et il y a une petite quantité de dégâts de vers à l'arrière du livre, mais aucun n'affecte le texte. Dans l'ensemble, un très bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage. Il s'agit d'une réimpression de cet ouvrage. Il y avait de nombreuses éditions, et des variations de l'ouvrage par différents éditeurs.

    Encyclopaedia Britannica says: "Barclay's Euphormionis Lusinini Satyricon - a severe satire on the Jesuits, the medical profession, and contemporary scholarship, education, and literature - is modeled on the style of the Roman satirist Gaius Petronius Arbiter; it is an urbane and facile mixture of prose and verse. Filled with villains and rogues, it contributed to the later development of the picaresque novel". Premier Ainsi. Demi cuir avec planches texturées. Six panneaux en relief à décor doré d'époque. Pages de garde imprimées à la main. Tous les bords des pages sont rouges. Les plats et le dos sont en bon état, avec seulement de légers frottements. Coins et tranches légèrement émoussés. À l'intérieur, il y a un ex-libris de la bibliothèque hongroise à l'avant et quelques petits timbres de la bibliothèque hongroise. La page de titre comporte des notes manuscrites à l'encre et une zone qui semble avoir été brûlée par une bougie. Sinon, quelques rousseurs sporadiques, mais généralement très bien pour son âge. [24], 728 pages. 205 x 130 mm (8 x 5 pouces).
    L'Encyclopaedia Britannica dit : « Euphormionis Lusinini Satyricon de Barclay - une satire sévère sur les jésuites, la profession médicale et l'érudition, l'éducation et la littérature contemporaines - est calquée sur le style du satiriste romain Gaius Petronius Arbiter ; c'est un mélange courtois et facile de prose et de vers. Rempli de méchants et de coquins, il a contribué au développement ultérieur du roman picaresque ».

The rest of the book is clean and tidy, with just a touch of darkening. A tag has been fixed to the divisional title at the beginning of vol. II. This is still firmly in place, but has caused a little tearing to the edge of the page. Bezange was a Benedictine Monk. [xxviii], 1-216; [ii], 1-464, [xxiv]. pp. The register is separate for each vol. so A-Dd4; A-Ppp3. Plein cuir contemporain.

Détail du premier propriétaire sous un ex-libris de bibliothèque et un index de carte au recto collé vers le bas. Le reste du livre est propre et bien rangé, avec juste une touche de noircissement. Une étiquette a été fixée au titre divisionnaire au début du vol. II. Ceci est toujours fermement en place, mais a causé un petit déchirement au bord de la page. Bezange était un moine bénédictin. [xxviii], 1-216 ; [ii], 1-464, [xxiv]. pp. Le registre est séparé pour chaque vol. donc A-Dd4; A-Ppp3.

Final 3 pages, Psalms with very old repairs and one page inserted out of order. Psalms complete but Creed incomplete at end of book (So ends at page 92). All sections dated 1608. Robert Barker. The noted issues with this copy are: f68 marked as f96; f173 with pasted down border note; f329 (last of Ezekiel misbound in Daniel); f330 present but with loss of a large are of text; f434 mispaginated as f435; f435 has large ink stain to verso; f464 small closed tear; f483 torn with some loss; f490 mispaginated as f499; f534 complete but torn; Book of Psalms: 1st 10 pages unpaginated; p28 mispaginated as p27; p86 mispaginated as p66; pps 87/88 exchanged with pps 89/90; The final two leaves have been repaired, and the final leaf with moderate loss to the edges. As is inevitable with a Bible of this age, there are also tiny tears, nicks and edgewear, and a general darkening of the pages, nevertheless s a very nice example. This edition of the Geneva Bible received the nickname Breeches Bible, because on its erroneous translation of Genesis Chapter 3, Verse 7. The text reads: 'Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed figge tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches.' Each page is numbered to the recto only (if at all) so these are actually leaf numbers (so we refer to fn). To confuse matters further, the book of psalms numbers each page, not leaf. Full collation: [ii], 1-554, [1-98], [1]-91.pp Collation: [lacks blank q1], q2-Zzz10, A-L2, A-G3. Our copy substantially conforms to Darlow & Moule 225a. The states that it is substantially a close reprint of the 1605 quarto, with text ending on fo.554 (as does ours for the OT and NT) and with Gen. i. 3: 'Then God Sayd...' 240 by 170mm (9½ by 6¾ inches).

Reliure en plein veau moucheté du 20e siècle. Les pages de garde sont neuves et unies. 4 bandes surélevées au dos, décorations aveugles sur les compartiments. Bords de la planche à motifs. Pas d'étiquette ni de titre au dos. Toutes les pages de titre sont présentes. Les 3 dernières pages, Psaumes avec de très vieilles réparations et une page insérée dans le désordre. Les Psaumes sont complets mais le Credo est incomplet à la fin du livre (So se termine à la page 92). Toutes les sections sont datées de 1608. Robert Barker. Les problèmes notés dans cet exemplaire sont : f68 marqué comme f96 ; f173 avec une note de bordure collée ; f329 (dernière page d'Ezéchiel mal reliée à Daniel) ; f330 présent mais avec perte d'une grande partie du texte ; f434 mal paginé comme f435 ; f435 a une grande tache d'encre au verso ; f464 petite déchirure fermée ; f483 déchiré avec une certaine perte ; f490 mal paginé comme f499 ; f534 complet mais déchiré ; Livre des Psaumes : Les 10 premières pages ne sont pas paginées ; p28 mal paginée comme p27 ; p86 mal paginée comme p66 ; pps 87/88 échangées avec pps 89/90 ; Les deux derniers feuillets ont été réparés, et le dernier feuillet avec une perte modérée sur les bords. Comme c'est inévitable avec une Bible de cet âge, il y a aussi de petites déchirures, des entailles et un assombrissement général des pages, mais c'est un très bel exemplaire. Cette édition de la Bible de Genève a reçu le surnom de Bible à culotte, en raison de sa traduction erronée du chapitre 3, verset 7 de la Genèse. Le texte se lit comme suit : Les yeux de l'un et de l'autre s'ouvrirent, et ils connurent qu'ils étaient nus. Ils cousirent ensemble des feuilles de figuier et se firent une culotte. Chaque page n'étant numérotée qu'au recto (voire pas du tout), il s'agit en fait de numéros de feuilles (nous nous référons donc à fn). Pour compliquer encore les choses, le livre des psaumes numérote chaque page, et non chaque feuille. Collation complète : [ii], 1-554, [1-98], [1]-91.pp Collation : [manque le blanc q1], q2-Zzz10, A-L2, A-G3. Notre exemplaire est en grande partie conforme à Darlow & Moule 225a. Il s'agit essentiellement d'une réimpression proche du quarto de 1605, avec le texte se terminant sur fo.554 (comme le nôtre pour l'AT et le NT) et avec Gen. i. 3 : 'Then God Sayd...' 240 par 170mm (9½ par 6¾ pouces).

Between 1656 and 1658, Bonichon wrote three tracts on the subject of the authority of Bishops in the ecclesiastical hierarchy (over the authority of clergy). A hot topic in France at the time apparently! The hierarchy stood with Bonichon against the clergy. [xxviii], 776, [2] pp. 250 x 170 mm (9¾ x 6¾ inches). Première édition. Reliure plein cuir, avec sept panneaux surélevés au dos. Doré et titres sur le dos et les tranches des plats. Feuilles de garde marbrées. Cimier armorié d'un évêque inconnu sur le plateau intérieur. La reliure a des numéros de localisation privés sur papier jusqu'au dos. Un petit frottement/cognement sur les bords et coins des planches. Intérieurement un bel exemplaire. Impression propre et soignée. Les dernières pages ont une légère tache d'eau dans un coin. Bonichon (mort 1662) était un moine oratorien français. Entre 1656 et 1658, Bonichon écrivit trois tracts au sujet de l'autorité des évêques dans la hiérarchie ecclésiastique (sur l'autorité du clergé). Un sujet brûlant en France à l'époque apparemment ! La hiérarchie se tenait avec Bonichon contre le clergé. [xxviii], 776, [2] pp. 250 x 170 mm (9¾ x 6¾ inches).
