  Third-rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In the British Royal Navy, a third-rate was a ship of the line mounting 64 to 80 guns, typically built with two (thus the related term two-decker).
When the rating system was first established, in the 1670s, the third rate was defined as 70 guns, with second-rates having 90 guns, and fourth-rates 54-60 guns.
As time passed, and different ships were built with greater or fewer numbers of guns, the term was expanded to include the whole range from 64 to 80.

 Critical Issues in Modern Religion And England in the 1670s by John Spurr, ISBN 0631192565
The 1670s were the heyday of Restoration England -- a period of experimentation, politicization, and strife.
However, even though the decade was a crucial period in England's history, little has been written about it.

England in the 1670s fills this gap in the literature by exploring the richness and complexity of the decade, and by challenging existing assumptions about it.

Drawing on maps, sermons, diaries, tracts, news, and a range of literary sources to explore subjects as diverse as prostitution, piety, cartography, commerce, heroism, and the "talk of the town", England in the 1670s paints a revealing and vibrant portrait of a society grappling with change.

 Ephelia Hermaneutics
Furthermore, Etherege was not "worne out of Fashion" in the late 1670s; he was still vigorous and in demand in the opening years of his fourth decade (New CBEL II [1971]: 741).
Indeed, Etherege was spry enough in the late 1670s to have been involved in the famous bloody brawl at Epsom (1676), as broadly documented ('Old' DNB, "Etherege," p 908, etc.).
But another George, George Villiers, entering his fifth decade in the late 1670s, was, indeed, a pitiful spectacle of a deteriorating and disgraced aristocrat, said to be worn to a thread from whoring.

 H-Net Review: Andrew Walkling on England in the1670s: This Masquerading Age   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Of the three decades that encompass the reigns of Charles II and James II, the 1670s are easily the least understood by historians, and often receive short shrift in surveys of the Restoration era.
These are complemented by five thematic chapters (4-8) that explore a variety of social, cultural, and technological aspects of English life during this decade, including heroism and wit; agriculture, trade, and technology; mapping, travel, and the dissemination of news; sex and love; and politics and religion.
Spurr's brief is not an easy one: not only are the 1670s an underappreciated period within the larger Restoration era, but they lack the kind of neatly defined boundaries that the events of 1660 and 1688-89 provide for those writing on the entire period or on the neighboring decades.

The rather battered pottery bust sat on her aunt's mantelpiece from the 1920s until she died age 94, says the owner.
John Sandon assumes the subject is a Turk because of his turban and explains that it is delftware, made in the 1670s, and that "anything from that age is quite a rare piece." But if it is English delftware then it is very rare indeed.
He doesn't mind the fact that it's chipped because that indicates that it's more likely to be genuine, and he stresses that it is important to find out if it was made in Europe or in England.

A connection by marriage with the architect and engraver Jean Marot I, who was working for King Louis XIV, may have led to Gole’s first known royal commission in 1661.
Gole’s style developed quickly: his earliest cabinets, in ebony, followed the mid-century style of rich sobriety, but for his first royal commission he decorated a cabinet (untraced) with floral marquetry and during the 1660s and 1670s he used such exotic materials as tortoiseshell, japanning and brass and pewter marquetry with amaranth wood.
Among his most exotic pieces were tables with an ivory ground in imitation of porcelain, supplied in the 1670s to the Trianon de Porcelaine at Versailles.

 Covenant Chain :: The Encyclopedia of New York State :: Syracuse University Press
Prior to that date, the Iroquois had made treaties with Dutch traders and officials but had not used the term.
At a council in 1659 between the Mohawk and Dutch, official reference was made to a 1643 treaty in which the Mohawk claimed that they had metaphorically bound themselves to the Dutch by an "iron chain." By the late 1670s the term Covenant Chain was increasingly used to convey that sense of alliance.
At meetings in Albany and various Iroquois villages, participants renewed alliances, claiming that they came to "polish" the chain.

 Political Philosophy of John Locke [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Thus prior to the change of wind in the Two Treatises, Locke’s conservative, moral authoritarian philosophy is highly apparent in various comments throughout the 1670s and 80s.
This, incidentally, is symptomatic of a mind-body dualism (as it affects the political realm), in which a philosopher asserts the primacy and hence freedom of the mind while accepting the subjugation of the body, a dichotomy that Locke only gradually moves away from.
In the 1670s under Shaftesbury’s patronage, Locke expounded a mercantilist philosophy of trade and a hard-money policy.
