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
5 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 Impression 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 (1649–1660). 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" - 7½" tall; 124 pages

A History of the Bahamas, Craton, Michael
11 Craton, Michael A History of the Bahamas
London Collins 1963 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Map endpapers. Dust and book in excellent condition. Dust in mylar protective cover. Michael Craton, who died in September 2016, was an English/Canadian historian who made a major contribution to the historiography of the English-speaking Caribbean. He was born in London in 1931, and educated at Christ's Hospital in Horsham, West Sussex, and at University College London, where he graduated with a B.A. in History in 1955. He spent six years after graduation teaching at the Government High School in Nassau, The Bahamas, before emigrating to Canada in 1963, obtaining his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at McMaster University in Ontario. The earliest arrival of humans in the islands now known as The Bahamas was in the first millennium AD. The first inhabitants of the islands were the Lucayans, an Arawakan-speaking Taino people, who arrived between about 500 and 800 AD from other islands of the Caribbean. Recorded history began on 12 October 1492, when Christopher Columbus landed on the island of Guanahani, which he renamed San Salvador Island on his first voyage to the New World. The earliest permanent European settlement was in 1648 on Eleuthera. During the 18th century slave trade, many Africans were brought to the Bahamas as slaves to work for free. Their descendants now constitute 85% of the Bahamian population. The Bahamas gained independence from the United Kingdom on July 10, 1973. ; Photographs, Maps; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 319 pages

C-66 A World War II Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company, Emery, Weston Lewis
13 Emery, Weston Lewis C-66 A World War II Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company
Weston Lewis Emery 1992 0929539303 / 9780929539300 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine with No dust jacket as issued Signed by Author
Blue (Infantry color) cover with gold illustration and print. Inscribed to former owner and signed "Muscles" the nickname of author and also signed by author on title page. This is the story of 512 men who worked for a common goal during a period of 155 days. Few of them were together during all those days, but all of them belonged to the same group. Many were no longer there when the job was done. Some gave their lives early - Some were taken prisoner - Some were hospitalized - Some gave their lives later - Some were with the group for 155 days.This brief record of their service in World War II is dedicated to all of them. ADD This is a remarkable record of one unit of an armored division during the last five months of the the war in Europe. It is carefully researched from official documents of the National Archives, and is laced with letters written home. This saga has been compiled by one of the enlisted men who never missed a day of duty and whose first hand view point as a company commander's combat radioman gives us a broad inside view of the company. Several helpful reviews: "We are placing C-66 in the Military Academy Library as an excellent resource for our cadets." Lieutenant General, U.S. Army, Superintendant United States Military Academy West Point May 4, 1994, "Works of your calliber are especially important.... I'm placing your book in the Armor School Library." -- Major General, U.S.Army, Commanding General. Headquarters U. S. Army Armor Center and Fort Knox. May 23, 1994 Rare signed copy. "W.L. Emory takes a different approach in bringing us the history of Company C (Hqs. Co.) of the 66th Armored Infantry Battalion of the 12th Armored Division from November, 1944 to war's end. Most of the other ex-infantrymen authors who have published accounts of World War II relate personal experiences of the excitement, terror, humor, and even boredom of combat. Sgt. Emory takes a more structured and factual approach in this self-published work. He relies on military records found in various Government archives to form the foundation of his book." Reviewer's account. Fully indexed. ; Photographs and illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 519 pages

17 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" - 7½" tall; 152 pages
