TOLAND, JOHN (1670-1722)
TETRADYMUS Containing I. Hodegus; or, the Pillar of Cloud and Fire, that guided the Israelites in the Wilderness, not miraculous .. II. Clidophorus; or, of the Exoteric and Esoterick Philosophy .. of the antients .. III. Hypatia .. IV. Mangoneutes: being a defense of Nazarenus .. against Dr. Mangey, Mr. Patterson ..
London, Brotherton & Meadows first edition 1720 Woodcut foliated inital capitals and tailpieces. . Octavo paper wrappers xxii +226pp +errata but Lacking 3 leaves (I3&6+L-1). Titlepage printed in red and black. From page 166 there is loss to the top corner at first only marginal corner, then affecting only the page numbers, but on final 9 leaves some corner loss of text. *Toland was called "the great Oracle of the Anti-Christians" by Swift. The 4 parts are unrelated essays the most important of which is "Clidophorus", the 1st published work on the esoteric/exoteric distinction. Here Toland offers important suggestions on how to read an esoteric text, throwing light on deistic and atheistic writers such as himself, who were forced to disguise their true meaning in order to evade persecution for blasphemy. Also of interest is the essay on the early female philosopher, Hypatia, and Toland's defence of his "Nazarenus".

TROLLOPE,ANTHONY (1815-1882)
THE WEST INDIES AND THE SPANISH MAIN.
London, Chapman & Hall (no edition but dated on titlepage year of first edition) 1859 Hand colored map of West Indies and northern part of South America. . Octavo red roan spined boards (leather mostly lacking but covers well attached) iv +395pp. Paper browned and 3 small tears without loss. *Based on Trollope's tour of the West Indies undertaken as a British Post Office official in 1858-9. The DNB entry on Trollope says that "Sir Rowland Hill .. Trollope's decided adversary in most things, has left it on record that Trollope's mission to the West Indies was fruitful in valuable results, and that his suggestions for the improvement of the packet services had the assent of nautical men. The expedition resulted in .. a highly entertaining book of travel, considered by the writer as the best of his work of this kind." It begins "I am beginning to write this book on board the brig ---, trading between Kingston, in Jamaica, and Cien Fuegos, on the southern coast of Cuba. At the present moment there is not a puff of wind .. It is now the 25th of January, 1859, and if I do not reach Cien Fuegos by the 28th, all this misery will have been in vain .." A rather worn copy in poor binding but probably the first edition, and complete.

London, W. Rogers, R. Knaplock, A. Bell & T. Cockeril 2nd edition corrected and somewhat enlarged. 1701 . Octavo original panelled leather with blind tooled darker and lighter panels, floral corner ornaments & swags, rebacked on 5 raised bands with gilt red spine label (tips worn) lxxii +380pp +[2]pp booklist. A crisp clean copy includes the final blank. *Tyrrell was a Whig theorist, friend and colleague of John Locke, whose writings were important for the history of liberalism. In this study of Moral Philosophy he concludes that the notion of "the Common Good" is not only the whole law of Nature but the revealed Law of Moses and the great design of Christ's coming into the World. The second part of the work is an interesting point by point comparison of Hobbes' Principles with the law of nature as he sketched it in the first part. Tyrrell was a popularizer who made the political theories accessible to the general public (see Julia Rudolph "Revolution By Degrees: James Tyrrell and Whig Political Thought in the Late 17th Century").

VINCENT OF LERINS, SAINT (DIED CIRCA 435) & AUGUSTINE, SAINT (BISHOP OF HIPPO)
Vincentii Lirinensis ADVERSUS PROFANAS omnium novitates haereticorum commonitorium. Cum notis V.C. Stephani Baluzii. Adjicitur S. Augustini LIBER DE HAERESIBUS.
Cambridge England, Printed John Hayes published William Graves (Bookselle) 1687 . Duodecimo (118x70mm) disbound lacking a1 which is a blank. Contains Titlepage within double ruled border + (68pp) of preface with errata + 2nd identical titlepage -verso blank +(10p) additional Preface with same errata as on C12 + 1-312p Is sometimes found without the first 68p preface, and in another variant with catchword on p269 Ste- when it leaves out p270-4 which is an Appendix. In our copy the catch word is Appen- and the Appendix is present starting on 270. The signatures are thus correct & as usual in 12's. The Saint Augustine begins on p169. The first TP has small tears but only affecting the outer of the two ruled borders it also has some uniform tanning. There are some early underlinings or marginal annotations else clean and square. *Little is know of St.Vincent, his work being far better known than his life. The Commonitorium stresses the importance of tradition and commonly understood practice in scriptural exegesis. He is, thus, opposed to the doctrine of St. Augustine. The Etienne Baluze commentary notes apply only to the St.Vincent work and are considered by many to be the best of the 17th century's many translations and printings of Vincent de Lerins. The long first Preface deals with the French editions which tended to allow Papal supremacy in these controveries. Here combining the Vincent and Augustine controversialists' on early Catholic heresies in one abridged volume (WING V453).
