9781331139225: Behemoth or the Long Parliament (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Behemoth or the Long Parliament

My Lord,

I present your Lordship with four short dialogues concerning the memorable civil war in his Majesty's dominions from 1640 to 1660. The first contains the seed of it, certain opinions in divinity and politics. The second hath the growth of it in declarations, remonstrances, and other writings between the King and Parliament published. The two last are a very short epitome of the war itself, drawn out of Mr. Heaths chronicle. There can be nothing more instructive towards loyalty and justice than will be the memory, while it lasts, of that war. Your Lordship may do with it what you please. I petition not to have it published.

Descripción Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Behemoth or the Long Parliament I do here present you with a piece of Mr. Hobbes s writing, which is not published from an imperfect ms., as his Dialogue of the Civil Wars of England was (by some that had got accidentally a copy of it) absolutely against his consent, as you may see by some passages out of some of his letters to me which I have here inserted. In his letter of June, 1679, he saith: I would fain have published my Dialogue of the Civil Wars of England long ago, and to that end I presented it to his Majesty; and some days after, when I thought he had read it, I humbly besought him to let me print it; but his Majesty (though he heard me graciously, yet he) ?atly refused to have it published. Therefore I brought away the book, and gave you leave to take a copy of it; which, when you had done, I gave the original to an honourable and learned friend, who about a year after died. The king knows better, and is more con cerned in publishing of books than I am therefore I dare not venture to appear in the business, lest it should offend him. Therefore I pray you not to meddle in the business. Rather than to be thought any way to further or counten ance the printing, I would be content to lose twenty times the value of what you can expect to gain by it, c. To this now may be added the following unprinted passage from a letter, which was addressed at a still later date (august 19, 1679) by the aged philosopher to his friend John Aubrey (the end of it being inserted in Aubrey s Sketch of Hobbes s Life, published in Letters from the Bodleian, vol. Ii., ubz m d. P. Running thus: I have been told that my book of the civil war is come abroad. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
