[Wing H2238]. FIRST EDITION. A scarce Hobbes item comprising his his response to a bill proposed in the Commons that proposed an investigation of heresy and "in particular... the book of Mr. Hobbes called the Leviathan." Hobbes was so alarmed by this that he burned a number of his papers but also took to investigating the current statutes on heresy, the result of which was this text which argued that following the abolition of the High Commission Court prior to the Civil War, there remained no body in England able to rule on the committing of heresy. - Visit our website to see more images!
