        Delle mutationi de' regni

      per Giacomo Scaglia, 1629. Cm. 19,5, pp. (4) 142 (14). Bel marchio tipografico al frontespizio e alcuni capilettera xilografici. Ottima legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con traccia di titoli manoscritti lungo il dorso. Qualche lieve e marginale alone, sporadiche fioriture/arrossature. Esemplare ben conservato. Ottavio Sammarco (15??-1630), barone originario di Rocca d'Evandro (Caserta), fu autore di alcuni importanti scritti politici che s'inseriscono nella vasta tradizione di opere dedicate al tema della Ragion di Stato. Mosso da uno spirito apologetico nei confronti del Regno e del Viceré di Napoli (destinatario della dedicatoria), Sammarco teorizza l'importanza della stabilità di governo e i pericoli di rivoluzioni e discordie politiche. Il saggio è diviso in dodici capitoli incentrati sulle mutazioni dei regni: rivolte dei sudditi, cause, odio verso il principe, tirannide, caratteristiche di chi guida una rivolta, modalità ed effetti, ecc. Rara seconda edizione, uscita un anno dopo l'originale edito a Napoli nel 1628 da Scoriggio. Cfr. Iccu; Bozza, Scrittori politici italiani, nr. 132; Graesse, VI, p. 255; Piantanida, 435 per un'altra edizione; Gamba (2078) erroneamente censisce questa come la prima edizione..

      London: Henry Seile, 1629. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (325 x 210 mm). [34], 536 (i.e. 535), [11] pp., including engraved title page by Thomas Cecill, two engraved plates, three engraved maps (one folding, two bouble-page), decorative headpieces, tailpieces and initial letters, text in lined border, bound without the final blank 3z6.

Light marginal browning to text, occasional very minor spotting, preliminary leaf A1 soiled and chipped at blank corners, gathering (a) little frayed at fore-margin, paper flaw in leaf 3M1 not affecting text, closed tear in folding map without loss, two leaves browned stronger. Provenance: Robert Biddulph Phillipps (with his bookplates to front pastedown). A near fine and wide-margined copy. ---- STC 24058; ESTC S117705; Pforzheimer 493. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, of Hobbes' translation, his first book, and the first English translation from the Greek. "In his verse autobiography Hobbes explained that Thucydides was his favourite ancient historian; what apparently attracted him was the cool dissection of political motivation and the 'realist' approach to power, together with the peculiarly Thucydidean analysis of the role of rhetoric in political debate. This translation was an important achievement, establishing Hobbes at a stroke as one of the leading Grecianists of his day. Hobbes also drew the elaborate map of ancient Greece which accompanied the text" (Noel Malcolm in ONDB). "Thucydides' history of the Peloponnesian war (431-404 B.C.) is renowned as much for establishing historical methods and standards as for its record of one of the most important events in Greek history. Thucydides states that he limited his sources to either personal knowledge or close scrutiny of the evidence of others. In seeking to set forth the facts of the war untainted by hearsay, he created a lasting record which was, as he himself called it, 'a possession for ever'."

Et prima di quelle materie, che sono appartenenti a fabricare, come pietre, legnami, metalli, and alla dispositione secondo le parti celesti. Con alcune diffinitioni de' principii geometrici, metereologici, e mathematici, and regole nella prospettiva and della simmetria humana

      Bolzetta Francesco, 1629. Segue (a numerazione continua e con autonomo frontespizio): ZANINI GIUSEPPE VIOLA. Della nuova simmetria de gli cinque ordini d"architettura... Opera necessaria ne gli adornamenti delle fabriche, come colonne, cornici, base, capitelli, pedestilli, archi, intercolunnii; il tutto con approbate ragioni vien descritto, e mostrato nelli dissegni. Due parti in un volume di cm. 21, pp. (20) 1-252; (4) 253-497 (3). Con bei marchi tip. ai frontespizi e 93 vignette xil. a piena pagina raffiguranti elementi architettonici. Legatura ottocentesca in mezza pergamena ricavata da antico manoscritto con titoli ms. al dorso; tagli e sguardie marmorizzati. Antica firma di possesso. Minimi segni del tempo alla legatura, alcune cc. lievemente brunite, trascurabile alone limitato al margine delle ultime cc. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato.

        De dis Syris syntagmata II. Adversaria nempe de Numinibus commentitiis in veteri instrumento memoratis ... reliqua Syrorum, prisca porro Arabum, Aegiptiorum, Persarum, Afrorum, Europaeorum

      Bonaventura et Abraham Elsevir, 1629. Cm. 14,5, pp. (40) 373 (1). Frontespizio in rosso e nero con bel marchio tip. elzeviriano. Testo latino intercalato da frammenti in arabo, ebraico, greco e gotico. Legatura antica (verosimilmente inglese) in piena pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso, piatti inquadrati da elegante cornice impressa a secco. Sottile fenditura ad una cerniera, mancanza di pochi mm. ad una cuffia, alcune lievi spellature, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. John Selden (1584-1654), definito forse enfaticamente da Grozio la "gloria dell'Inghilterra", è ritenuto ad ogni modo uno dei più originali intellettuali del Seicento inglese. Le sue posizioni sulla condizione ebraica, la difesa della libertà di stampa e l'elaborazione di un sistema di diritto naturale incardinato sulle leggi ebraiche, gli procurarono inimicizie politiche, l'avversione della chiesa anglicana e soprattutto numerose incarcerazioni. Quest'opera, di grande importanza nell'ambito della storia delle religioni e delle civiltà, si propone come un'originalissima riflessione sulle diverse divinità nelle tradizioni e nei rituali di Europa, Africa, Siria, Persia, Egitto ed ovviamente pone in primo piano l'interpretazione ebraica. Da segnalare inoltre le frequenti digressioni di taglio esoterico, soprattutto in relazione alle divinità egizie. Seconda edizione, non comune e ricercata. Cfr. Brunet, V, 267 e Graesse, VI, 343..

        Icones Precantium. Das ist: Christliche Figuren/ zur Gebetstund angesehen/ in welchen die Exempla der rechtschaffnen Beter und Bussfertigen Hertzen auss heiliger Schrift abgemahlt/ und zur Erweckung grösserer Andacht vor Augen gestellt werden/ mit beygefügter Erklärung.

      Nürnberg, Endter, 1629. 8vo (ca. 15,8x10 cm). Truly magnificent contemporary embroidered German silver thread binding - from 1630 - of claret satin over wooden boards. The figure of Faith, with crucifix, within an oval frame to front board and the figure of Justice, with scales and sword, within an oval frame to back board. Both "frames" are richly decorated with birds, insects, and ornamentations, and both boards are sprinkled with tiny sequins. The embroidery is remarkably well preserved, is in very high relief, and is wrought predominantly in silver tread, with green, red and blue threads intertwined. Both figures are standing on green bases, and the "filling" of the frames are red. The birds are blue. The spine is divided into four panels, by three broad silver bands. Each compartment is richly decorated, again predominantly in silver thread, with red, green and blue threads intertwined, and in high relief. The four lovely, large ornaments are, from the bottom: a basket of fruit; an ornament introducing a scallop shell; fruit-composition (apple, pear, grapes); another decorative ornament. All edges gilt. The thread of the arms of Faith on the front board, and of the most protruding parts of Justice on the back board are a bit worn, and the satin on the very edges of the boards is worn, so that the edges of the wooden boards are visible. But all in all, the binding is in splendid condition, and the embroidery is clear and in high relief. The delicate burgundy satin background is almost completely preserved, as are all the tiny sequins sprikled out over the binding. Also internally, the book is in excellent condition. The lower corner of the engraved title-page has been torn off, and there's a closed tear (no loss) the top; the leaf has been mounted at an early date. A book plate to inside of front board announces that the book has been displayed at the "Art Treasures Exhibition 1928" (the catalogue of the exhibition is enclosed). One of the front free end-papers contains a beautifully written, decorative, full-page contemporarily handwritten declaration in German from Nicolaus Klaumann, stating that the book was an engagementpresent for his bride-to-be Mechtilde Motzfeldtz, in 1630. Engraved title-page, (20), 764, (2) pp.With 20 full-page engraved illustrations of Christian fugures in prayer. A beautiful printing, with each leaf set within a broad decorative woodcut border. ¶ Exceedingly scarce first edition of Saubert's important series of images of Christian figures to be contemplated during prayer hours, bound in an outstanding strictly contemporary German embroidered binding of the highest quality, made as an engagement present in 1630. Saubert's beautiful work is highly important in the tradition of religious imagery and the growing notion of the 17th century that the straightforward contemplation of religious figures in e.g. prayer will engage the soul quite differently than the viewing of frivolous paintings like those of Venus. Saubert sets out to depict "the examples of honest supplicants and penitent hearts from sacred Scripture... and put [them] before the eyes to awaken greater devotion" (from the title-page of the present work) and thus inscribes himself in the very beginning of the budding pious tradition of religious imagery of the period. "Like Merian's "Icones biblicae", Saubert's work appeared during the traumas of the Thirty Years' War. In his preface, Saubert writes of the "troubled times (when nothing is more necessary than prayer)", and states that to meet this need he has portrayed praying figures from Scripture "so that Christian eyes take delight, are refreshed, and may be helpful to the heart for greater devotion to prayer". The book contains a series of images of Old Testament figures such as Jacob, Moses, Samson, and Samuel at prayer, with relevant biblical texts and explanations taken from "distinguished evangelical teachers", from Luther to Arndt." (Bridget Heal: A Magnificent Faith: Art and Identity in Lutheran Germany, p. 115). The work is of the utmost scarcity, and OCLC lists only five copies in all, of both the first edition (2 copies) and the second of 1638 (3 copies). One of the copies is listed as a 1626-printing, but we assume that this is an error in the database, as we can find no mention of an edition from 1626, and the only proper reference we can find to the first printing is in Heal, which states that the first edition is from 1629. This also corresponds with the libraries mentioning that they have the second printing, which is from 1638.

Précurseur du premier journal français (la Gazette de Théophraste Renaudot), le Mercure Français est une publication annuelle fondée par l"imprimeur Jean Richer. Relatant faits divers et nouvelles du monde entier, elle comptera au total 25 volumes, dont 20 publiés de 1611 à 1638 chez Richer avec une périodicité presque annuelle. Ce quatorzième tome est essentiellement consacré aux guerres de religion dans le sud-ouest de la France. Les protestants sont soutenus par les Anglais qui contrôlent la côte Atlantique et occupent l"île de Ré. La ville de La Rochelle se soulève, mais l"île de Ré est reprise aux Anglais et Richelieu organise le siège de La Rochelle, et repousse l"armada anglaise venue secourir la ville. En Languedoc, à Montpellier et à Castres, le pouvoir royal combat également les protestants soutenus par les seigneurs de Rohan. Par ailleurs est créée en 1628 une nouvelle compagnie pour le peuplement et le commerce au Canada, dont les statuts et obligations sont largement détaillés. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

"Curiositez inouyes" is Gaffarel's most important and influential work, dealing with Oriental Talismans, Hebrew, Egyptian and Arabic Astrology, the Kabbalah and star reading.

Ottima legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con traccia di titoli manoscritti lungo il dorso. Qualche lieve e marginale alone, sporadiche fioriture/arrossature. Esemplare ben conservato. Ottavio Sammarco (15??-1630), barone originario di Rocca d'Evandro (Caserta), fu autore di alcuni importanti scritti politici che s'inseriscono nella vasta tradizione di opere dedicate al tema della Ragion di Stato.

      Amstelodami, Bonaventura et Abraham Elsevir 1629 - Cm. 14,5, pp. (40) 373 (1). Frontespizio in rosso e nero con bel marchio tip. elzeviriano. Testo latino intercalato da frammenti in arabo, ebraico, greco e gotico. Legatura antica (verosimilmente inglese) in piena pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso, piatti inquadrati da elegante cornice impressa a secco. Sottile fenditura ad una cerniera, mancanza di pochi mm. ad una cuffia, alcune lievi spellature, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. John Selden (1584-1654), definito forse enfaticamente da Grozio la "gloria dell'Inghilterra", è ritenuto ad ogni modo uno dei più originali intellettuali del Seicento inglese. Le sue posizioni sulla condizione ebraica, la difesa della libertà di stampa e l'elaborazione di un sistema di diritto naturale incardinato sulle leggi ebraiche, gli procurarono inimicizie politiche, l'avversione della chiesa anglicana e soprattutto numerose incarcerazioni. Quest'opera, di grande importanza nell'ambito della storia delle religioni e delle civiltà, si propone come un'originalissima riflessione sulle diverse divinità nelle tradizioni e nei rituali di Europa, Africa, Siria, Persia, Egitto ed ovviamente pone in primo piano l'interpretazione ebraica. Da segnalare inoltre le frequenti digressioni di taglio esoterico, soprattutto in relazione alle divinità egizie. Seconda edizione, non comune e ricercata. Cfr. Brunet, V, 267 e Graesse, VI, 343.

        CHRISTIAAN HUYGENS: C. HUYGENS.

      Pencil and white chalk on blue paper (soft folds and small tear in the margins, old repaired tear in the lower part of the image, verso another portriat and traces of white paper and glue in the margins, otherwise in a good condition), 38 x 29 cm (14.9 x 11.4 inches). - [18th century]. A hand-drawnd portrait shows the astronomer, physicist, probabilist and horologist Christiaan Huygens (1629 –1695), with a globe in the back. The portrait is not signed, but was based on a draft by a Dutch portrait painter Bartholomeus van der Helst, according to a 18th or 19th century hand-written note at the bottom right. A contemporary of Rembrandt Van der Helst became the most popular painter of portraits in Amsterdam. We were not able to locate a portrait of Huygens by van der Helst, but the style of the portrait matches the manner of his work. We could also not trace any engraving that matches the appearance of the present work. Perhaps it is based on a painting or drawing that is now lost.

        Stich Castelhun ufm Hunsrück / Kastellaun / Castellaun 1629

      Sehr gut erhaltener Stich aus dem Jahr 1629. Originales Blatt mit alter Notiz. Blatt: 18.0 cm x 15.0 cm Originales Scan kann angefordert werden. Der 17. September 1689. Der Hunsrücker Zerstörungs- und Jammertag. Am 17. September 1689, dem Hunsrücker Zerstörungs- und Jammertag wurden zahlreiche Ortschaften im Hunsrück vollständig zerstört. Mit dieser Politik der "verbrannten Erde" versuchte Ludwig XIV. Erbansprüche auf die Pfalz durchzusetzen, die er im Namen seiner Schwägerin Elisabeth Charlotte erhob. Die französische Expansionspolitik auf pfälzischen Boden führte zu dem sogenannten pfälzischen Erbfolgekrieg, der sehr schnell europäisches Ausmaß erreichte. Klicken Sie hier, um die ganze Quelle zu sehen. Kastellaun, Stich von Meisner, 1629 (LHAKo Bestand 710, Nr. 2042) Wie zahlreiche andere Gebiete und Regionen in Deutschland war die Kurpfalz "verwüstet und elend" aus dem 30jährigen Krieg hervorgegangen. Der Westfälische Frieden von 1648 hatte den Machtbereich der Pfalz deutlich eingeschränkt. Hinzu kam, dass das expansive und nach europäischer Vormachtstellung strebende Frankreich unter Ludwig XIV. zum einflußreichsten Nachbarn der Pfalz geworden war. Der seit 1649 regierende Kurfürst Karl Ludwig versuchte mit allen Mitteln sein Land wieder aufzubauen und die politische Situation zu stabilisieren. Karl Ludwig wollte dies durch eine Annäherung an Frankreich erreichen, das finanzielle Unterstützung gewährte und Hoffnungen auf ein Königreich "Austrasien" machte. Um das Bündnis zu festigen, wurde 1671 die Eheschließung zwischen Elisabeth Charlotte, der Tochter Karl Ludwigs, die als Liselotte von der Pfalz bekannt wurde, und dem verwitweten Herzog Philipp von Orleans, dem Bruder Ludwigs XIV., in die Wege geleitet. Klicken Sie hier, um die ganze Quelle zu sehen. Bericht über die Zerstörung der Stadt Kastellaun 17.9.1689 (LHAKo Bestand 33, Nr. 8331) Die Hoffnungen des Kurfürsten auf eine Sicherung seines Territoriums durch ein Bündnis mit Frankreich wurden allerdings schnell enttäuscht. Bereits im Sommer 1674 wurde die Pfalz während des Holländischen Krieges von französischen Truppen unter Marschall Turenne verwüstet. Die Expansionspolitik Ludwig XIV. hatte ihren Höhepunkt aber noch lange nicht erreicht. Mit der sogenannten "Reunionspolitik", die seit 1679 die "Wiedervereinigung" von Frankreich mit auf Grund z. T. zweifelhafter Lehensverhältnisse beanspruchter Reichsgebiete anstrebte, erhielt sie eine neue Dimension. Die Reunionskammern, in Metz, Breisach und Besancon eingerichtete spezielle Gerichtshöfe, sprachen der französischen Krone Gebiete zu, die in irgendeiner Form einmal zu derzeit französischem Gebiet gehört hatten oder von diesem abhängig gewesen waren. Zahlreiche Herrschaften an der Westgrenze des Deutschen Reiches waren von diesen "Gerichtsaktionen" der Franzosen betroffen. Die Pfalz verlor das Amt Germersheim, Teile der vorderen Grafschaft Sponheim und das Kloster Eußerthal. Erst als die Annexionspolitik mit dem Fall der freien Reichsstadt Straßburg im September 1681 ihren Höhepunkt erreichte, versuchte das Reich diesen Bestrebungen Einhalt zu gebieten. Da die notwendigen Machtmittel für einen Konflikt gegen Frankreich fehlten, kam es aber lediglich zu einer Anerkennung aller Reunionen seit 1681 in dem Regensburger Stillstand von 1684. Diese Vereinbarung sollte allerdings keinen sehr langen Bestand haben. Auf dem Höhepunkt der französischen Annexionspolitik war es in der Kurpfalz zu einem Regierungswechsel gekommen. Seit 1680 regierte Kurfürst Karl II., dessen Schwester Herzogin Elisabeth Charlotte von Orleans mit Ludwig XIV. verschwägert war. Als Karl II. bereits 1685 kinderlos starb, entwickelte sich die als Segen geplante eheliche Verbindung mit dem französischen Herrscherhaus zum Fluch für das Land. Obwohl die Erbfolge nach Reichsrecht eindeutig geklärt war und den katholischen Philipp Wilhelm von Pfalz-Neuburg als neuen Kurfürsten vorsah, erhob der französische König im Namen seiner Schwägerin Erbansprüche auf Teile der Pfalz. Völlig ignoriert wurde hierbei ebenfalls, dass bei der Eheschließung ein vollständiger Verzicht Elisabeth Charlottes auf alle staatlichen Erbansprüche vereinbart und akzeptiert worden war. "Weder Land noch Leute sollten ihr oder ihren Nachkommen je zufallen." Von Anfang an stieß der französische König allerdings mit diesen Absichten auf die massive Gegenwehr der Reichspolitik. Es kam zum Krieg. Der pfälzische Erbfolgekrieg oder Orleansche Krieg (1688-1697) nahm bald europäische Ausmaße an. Obwohl Kaiser und Reich durch den Kampf mit den Türken gebunden waren, entwickelte sich in Europa ein breites Bündnis gegen Frankreich. "Um möglichen Aktionen der zusammentretenden Koalition zuvorzukommen, eröffnete Frankreich im September 1688 die Feindseligkeiten." Der Krieg wurde im "Rheingebiet, dem Prinzip der verbrannten Erde folgend, mit einer Brutalität geführt, wie sie zwischen christlichen Gegnern bis dahin unbekannt war. Elisabeth Charlotte mußte vom Versailler Hof aus die systematische Zerstörung und Einäscherung von Städten, Dörfern, Burgen und Schlössern in der Pfalz, die auch vor der Residenz Heidelberg und den Kaisergräbern im benachbarten Speyerer Dom nicht haltmachte, hilflos mit ansehen." Obwohl die Feindseligkeiten bereits 1688 einsetzten, gipfelten sie am 17. September 1689 in dem sogenannten "Hunsrücker Zerstörungs- und Jammertag". Zu diesem Zeitpunkt erreichten sie ihren "grausigen Höhepunkt". Zahlreiche Chroniken, Augenzeugenberichte und andere zeitgenössische Dokumente machen das Leiden und die Ängste der damals betroffenen Bevölkerung auch heute noch nachvollziehbar. Ungezählte Dörfer und Städte wurden an diesem Tag von den französischen Truppen verwüstet und dem Erdboden gleich gemacht.
