A treatise on church government,  Formerly called Anarchy of the Ranters, &c., being a two-fold apology for the church and people of God, called in ... good order and discipline in the church, Barclay, Robert
4 Barclay, Robert A treatise on church government, Formerly called Anarchy of the Ranters, &c., being a two-fold apology for the church and people of God, called in ... good order and discipline in the church
Philadelphia PA S. W. Conrad 1822 Later Printing; First Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
The original 1822 edition. Leather cover worn but contents tight and complete. Some foxing to pages. "Being a two-fold apology for the church and people of God called, in derision, Quakers. To which is added and epistle to the National meeting of Friends in Dublin concerning good order and discipline in the church" Very Rare. We provide delivery tracking on US orders. Robert Barclay (23 December 1648 3 October 1690) was a Scottish Quaker, one of the most eminent writers belonging to the Religious Society of Friends and a member of the Clan Barclay. He was also governor of the East Jersey colony in North America through most of the 1680s, although he himself never resided in the colony. The Ranters were one of a number of nonconformist dissenting groups that emerged around the time of the English Commonwealth (16491660). They were largely common people, and there is plenty of evidence that the movement was widespread throughout England, though they were not organised and had no leader.[Wikipedia]Ranters were regarded as heretical by the established Church and seem to have been regarded by the government as a threat to social order. They denied the authority of churches, of scripture, of the current ministry and of services, instead calling on men to listen to the divine within them. In many ways they resemble the 14th century Brethren of the Free Spirit. Rare.; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 124 pages

16 Hammond, Lamont BURKE'S SPEECH ON CONCILIATION WITH AMERICA
Ginn & Co. 1897 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Green cover some writing inside otherwise very good. Concerning the imperial controversy at the time Burke (Edmund) argued that the British government had acted in a both unwise and inconsistent manner. Again, Burke claimed that Britain's way of dealing with the colony question was strictly legal and he urged that also "claims of circumstance, utility, and moral principle should be considered, as well as precedent"(...432). In other words, if the British, persistently clinging to their narrow legalism, were not to clash with the ideas and opinions of the colonists on these matters, they would have to offer more respect and regard for the colonies' cause. Burke called for "legislative reason" in two of his parliamentary speeches on the subject; On American Taxation (1774) and On Moving His Resolutions for Conciliation With America (1775). However, British imperial policy in the controversy would continue to ignore these questions. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 152 pages
