    Autograph letter signed to "my cozen Tunstall," most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall by Rokeby, John

    1537. Rokeby, John (d. 1573). Autograph letter signed to "my cozen Tunstall," most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall (1474-1559). 1 - 1/2pp. N.p., n.d. 223 x 184 mm. Fine apart from light soiling. From ecclesiastical lawyer John Rokeby, who acted as one of Henry VIII's counsel in his divorce from Katharine of Aragon and later served as a member of the Council of the North, a regional administrative body originally established by Richard III and later reinstated by Henry VIII in 1530 as a means of exerting control over England's pro-Catholic northern counties. His correspondent was most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall, who served as president of the Council in 1530 and 1537; Tunstall is best known today as the author of De arte supputandi libri quattuor (1522), the first book published in England devoted exclusively to mathematics. In his letter Rokeby asks Tunstall for a "contribution to enable me to go through with my presant Undertaking . . . I began this Method last yeare but was check'd by ill health & want of the proper Instrument Lond. being too expensive for me & some necessary Cloaths awanting however am now determin'd to goe by sea as soon as possablely I can . . ." Rokeby and Tunstall may have been related, as they were both from the same part of England and Rokeby addressed Tunstall as "cozen.

    History of the Reformation in the Sixteenth Century, (5 Volume set) by D'Aubigne, J H Merle; Henry White

    Edinburgh: Oliver and Boyd, 1856. 5 volume set [Author's revised edition). Bibliographic References and Index. While D'Aubigne was the most carefully read by 19th Century scholar as well as the general population, he fell out of favor in the early 20th Century. Today scholars note that he was among the finest of the Christian historiographers, that is, the new the methods of Leopold von Ranke though his Christian presuppositions shine through. While many scholars attempt to view the Reformation in an objective study of sources, it often is accompanied with presuppositions that do not recognize the possibility that God is active in history. Just as the critics of C.S. Lewis often minimize his writing which openly comes from a Christian point of view, the same criticism can be applied to D'Aubgine though modern students of historiography such as John B. Roney has brought his significance back into perspective. He notes in this 1846 edition: "I have revised this edition line by line and word by word, it is the only one I have corrected." Later on the Relgious Tract Society offered this in a very large one volume cheap edition which influenced those for whom the 5 volume set was too expensive.

    Forms of Prayer; Proper to be Used Before, at and After the Receiving of the Holy Sacramento; Some of Which May be Fitly Made Use of Upon Other Occasions to Which are added Some Meditations, Proper to Excite a Holy and Devout Frame of Mind by Barker, Benjamin

    London: Printed for Benj. Barker and Sold By A. Bettesworth and C. Hitch. J Osborn and Ten Others, 1732. 12mo. 8th edition. Frontispiece, 72 pages. While some mistakenly attributed this to Dr. Samuel Johnson, it was first issued in 1704 and became popular in 18th Century England so some copies were also designed to be bound in with The Book of Common Prayer. Dr. Johnson did have a later issue in his personal library that he referred to. By the early 19th Century copies had become uncommon so W. Ford in his Curious and Valuable Collection of Books Catalogue (London, 1811) lists it along with other "curious and valuable books." The frontispiece is an unusual engraving of the Last Supper. The iconography that has John resting his head against Jesus is not unusual but here the disciple was treated as a young man but here he appears as a small boy. The previous owner was Hanna Hurst who notes it was the gift of Mrs. Hester Palmer, June 30, 1746. Bound in full black morocco, both boards decorated in gilt, spine gilt, marbled endpaper, second blank with corner cliipped. A handsome little book.

    American States, Churches, and Slavery by Balme, Joshua R

    Edinbugrh: W.P. Nimmo, 1862. First Edition. Small Octavo. xii, 546 pages, errata page, 8 pages of ad sat the end. The anti-slavery crusade in England with much reported here that was not found in the American Press since even in the North there was a reluctance to describe the horrors of slavery. Here is the catechism taught the blacks which was based on how God wanted them to be slaves. The system where the white slave owner often found the pleasures of sex with slaves when the wife no longer wished to be bothered. Beginning on page 241 he list the denominations that not only approved of slave but their bishops and ministers owned them (Methodists, Baptists, and others. These were the predecessors of the evangelicals of the 20th Century who are comfortable with their defense of the Bible but blind to the ways in which they neglect is cries for social justice. It is understandable why this work was published in Great Britain since it would have been despised not only in the South but a large part of the North. The advertisements in the back also come from William Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Phillips and a host of ministers from England. Bound in purple cloth lettered in gilt, spine lettering gilt brown coated endpapers, contemporary owner's name, some fading to cloth, corners light wear to corners and spine ends, spine darkened, hinges just starting but not broken through. pages 321 and 323 have chips to upper margin most likely from careless opening.
