De vera peccatorum remissione, adversus humanas satisfactiones et commentitium ecclesiae Romanae purgatorium, theologica et scholastica disputatio. Authore A. Sadeele.
First edition, rare. This work, bearing the imprint of the small Swiss town of Morges, is the third of three treatises by Chandieu (1534–1591) which reiterate Calvinist standpoints on key aspects of theology. Concerned with the remission of sins and the existence of Purgatory, it is divided into six chapters, the fourth and largest of which systematically refutes Catholic criticism of Protestant doctrine.
The French Reformed theologian Chandieu ‘took an active part in the deliberations of the first national synod of the Reformed Church in France which was held at Paris May 26–28, 1559, and assisted in preparing a confession of faith … In the religious war of 1585 he was field-chaplain to Henry of Navarre; but in May, 1588, he returned to his family at Geneva, where he died three years later, lamented by the Protestants of Geneva and France and by Beza. Chandieu was a prolific author, writing under the pseudonyms of Zamariel, Theopsaltes, La Croix, and, after 1577, of Sadeel’ (New Schaff-Herzog, III pp. 1–2).

PRIESTLEY AND PAINE PRIESTLEY, Joseph.
Lettres au Très-Honorable Edmund Burke, au sujet de ses réflexions sur la Révolution de France.
I. First edition in French of Priestley’s response to Edmund Burke’s influential manifesto of conservatism, Reflections on the Revolution in France; one of the first of thirty-eight replies made by contemporary authors. The work was well received in revolutionary France, so much so that the National Assembly declared Priestley a citizen in 1792 (an honour he declined). His pro-civil and religious liberty ideas were not as well appreciated in England where a ‘patriotic’ mob ransacked his home, library and laboratory in the so-called Priestley Riots of 1791. In 1794 he moved to America where he was well regarded by men like Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, not least for his scientific work.

First and only edition, rare, of this presentation of the constitutions of the restored Bourbon monarchs seen as the culmination of the Revolutionary struggle for liberty, and as such framed within the declarations of the rights of men and citizens.
