(BETWEEN OLIVER CROMWELL AND HUGH PETER, FROM HELL)

Naer de Copye, per Costi uyt de Hel gesonden / No place or publisher, 1661. Without wrappers, formerly a part of a convolute. 20 p. Very good condition. 'Tusshen' is a typo in the title, it should be 'tusschen'. "Discussion between Oliver Cromwell and Master Peter, about the business and present condition in England. In Cromwell's city, in the newly built Hell, by the fabric and invention of the Lord Protector. After the copy sent to you from Hell". This pamphlet in Dutch contains a posthumous, history-laden dialogue between the Puritan preacher Hugh Peter and the former ruler of Britain. Peter lived in Boston 1635-1641 and came back to Britain in the expectation to further the cause of Cromwell. He was enthusiastic about the execution of Charles II and, as an army chaplain, attended the execution of many of Charles' allies, not without relish. After the Restoration, Master Peter was executed himself as a regicide in 1660. This pamphlet also treats the peace talks with the Netherlands and the intended marriage of Charles II with Catherine of Braganza. Knuttel 8451.

 PAMPHLET ABOUT KING JAMES II, Nieuwe tydingh uyt de lught.
PAMPHLET ABOUT KING JAMES II
Nieuwe tydingh uyt de lught.
No place, no publisher ("Gedruckt met volkomen Consent van alle de Goden, op den Bergh van Parnas" = Printed with Full Consent of the Gods, on the Mountain of Parnassos), 1688. 19 x 15 cm. No wrappers (taken from a convolute). 24 p. Fine. In Dutch. "New Message from the Air". Satire on the superstitions of the Roman Catholic Church, in the cause of the struggle against the King of England, James II. Starting with an elaborate sketch of the astrological expectations for 1688 (including the birth, in June, of a child that might rob a rightful heir of his property, while the Kingdom of England has to fear an invasion: June 10, 1688, King James's son James Stuart was born). Followed by a letter of "Pater Peters", i.e. Edward Petre, the King's confessor, to François de la Chaise, the confessor of Louis XIV. Peters suggests that he fathered James Stuart, and sums up the comical contents of his suitcases that are to be sent to the Continent ("Thirty-four Drops of Sweat of a Severe Sinner, Collected by Eating Oil Cakes, as Penitence given to him by Father Mark for Killing a Living Chicken"). A well-written anti-Catholic pamphlet amidst the surging controversies leading to the Glorious Revolution, full of delightful absurdities and jokes aiming at Papism. It probably dates from the beginning of 1688, but predicts some of the dramatic happenings later that year. Knuttel 12990.
