Título: A Treatise of Humane Reason. London: printed...
Condición del libro: Very Good
12mo, [iv], 91 pp., contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, a very good copy from the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with the armorial Sapere Aude bookplate and blindstamps to the first two leaves. Second edition of a controversial work first published the previous year, by Martin Clifford (b. 1624), who was Master of the Charterhouse from 1671 until his death in 1677. 'In 1674 Clifford published anonymously in London A Treatise of Humane Reason, which stirred up a ten-year controversy by advancing the hypothesis of salvation even for an honest erring conscience. It was frequently reprinted. Not long after its publication Bishop Benjamin Laney of Ely dined with many ‘persons of quality’ in the Charterhouse, when he was asked about his opinion on that book. Undoubtedly unaware that he was in the presence of its author, the bishop answered that "twas no matter if all the copies were burnt and the author with them, knowing by what he had read in the book that the author makes every man's private fancy judge of religion". In 1682 the Unitarian author William Popple published a French translation of Clifford's treatise introduced by a longer preface justifying the opinions in it, with the title Traité de la raison humaine traduit de l'anglois. This aroused great interest among the Huguenot refugees in Holland' (ODNB). N° de ref. de la librería ABE-13381330707
