LONDON: Printed for Sarah Harris ..., 1691 [published date: 1691]. Rare Early edition. 12mo. 5.75" x 3.5" inches (LxB). Pp. (6), 184 pages (the last Tables page incorrectly bound between pages 2 & 3). Fine original contemporary full calf leather boards, gilt decorated spine sympathetically rebacked in antique style, using matching brown calf leather, with 5 raised bands, 2 red & black gilt lettered morocco labels. Includes early printing of the Magna Carta, Petition of Rights and selected portions of the contemporary British penal code, including anti-Catholic provisions. Extensive discussion of the powers of parliament, the jury system, and various government offices. Compiled by Henry Care (1646-1688). Wing C518. First published around 1680, this assertion of English rights had a profound influence in the American colonies. (It was also one of the first legal books published in America.) George Mason used it when drafting Virginia's Declaration of Rights (1776). It may have influenced Jefferson, who owned two copies, when he wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Its influence is also evident in the Bill of Rights. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson 2702, 2703. Cited In: Goldsmiths' Lib. cat., 2905. Wing C518.
Benjamin Franklin did not mention Care's work in his Autobiography, but it is almost certain he worked on the edition since it was printed during the time he was apprenticed to his brother James. It thus may be regarded as an early exposure to the tenets of personal rights and liberty for Franklin. Church 880; Evans 2208; Sabin 10819. A classic work. Complete as issued.
