Contemplations moral and divine by Matthew Hale ( Book )
161 editions published between 1675 and 1986 in English and held by 2,456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The author of these writings, is a person of great learning, great judgment and wisdom, and of great virtue and piety. He hath written diverse learned and compleat works upon other subjects, but for these writings here published, they were written, as were also many others of the like nature, "ex tempore" and upon this occasion, it hath been his custom for many years, every Lord's Day in the afternoon after evening sermon (between that and supper-time) to employ his thoughts upon several subjects of divine contemplations: and as things came into his thoughts, so he put them into writing; which he did for these two reasons. 1. That he might the more fix his thoughts, and keep them from diversion, and wandring. 2. That they might remain, and not be lost by forgetfulness or other interventions. And as this was the occasion and manner of his writing them, so this doubtless was all that he intended in them, unless moreover to communicate them to his children or some particular friends in private upon occasion: but for publishing them, certainly he had not the least thoughts of any such things much less hath he revised them for that purpose; nor so much as read over some of them since he wrote them; nor indeed so much as finished some of them. Nay so far was he from any thoughts of publishing them, that when he was importuned but to give his consent to the publication of them, he could not be prevailed with to do it. And therefore that they are now published, the reader must know that they are published not only in their native and primogeneal simplicity, but without so much as the Author's privity to it"--Preface.

The primitive origination of mankind : considered and examined according to the light of nature by Matthew Hale ( Book )
22 editions published in 1677 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This text explores mankind's origins, as considered and examined in light of nature, with particular emphasis on the following parts and assertions: I. That according to the light of nature and natural reason, the visible world was not eternal, but had a beginning; II. That if there could be any imaginable doubt thereof, yet by the necessary evidence of natural light it does appear that mankind had a beginning, and that the successive generations of men were in their original form; III. That this truth is evident by demonstrative reason and arguments; IV. That there are moral evidences of the truth of this assertion, which are herein particularly expanded and examined; V. That those great philosophers that asserted this origination of mankind, both ancient and modern, that rendered it by hypothesis different from that of Moses, were mistaken--here the hypotheses of Aristotle, Plato, and others are examined, and the absurdity and impossibility of their theories are detected; VI. That the current author's theory explaining the creation of man and of the world, in general, abstractly considered without relation to the divine inspiration of the writer, is according to reason, and preferable to the sentiments of other philosophers; and VII. That the author has concluded the whole of this work with certain corollaries and deductions, necessarily flowing from the things thus asserted, as well touching the existence, the wisdom, power, and providence of Almighty God, as touching both the duty and happiness of mankind"--Préface.
