         1664 Machiavelli PRINCE & Art of War Italian Renaissance Philosophy Politics

      A Rouen ; Et se vend a Paris : Par la Compagnie des libraires du Palais, 1664. - 1664 Machiavelli PRINCE & Art of War Italian Renaissance Philosophy Politics “The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.” Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th- and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work “The Prince” has infamously coined the term ‘Machiavellianism’ regarding politics and dishonest politicians. It has often been considered the first work of modern philosophy, mostly because it conflicts so strongly with Catholic doctrines concerning politics and ethics at the time. In ‘The Prince,’ Machiavelli treads a line between accepting tyranny and supporting free republic. He advises leaders on ‘acceptable’ tyranny, justifying many immoral actions taken by kings and princes; however, this point likely was written to encourage medieval Catholicism to be less strict in their relationship with the law. Ultimately, Machiavelli was seeking to provide rulers with a guide on how to be accepted by their subjects – however necessary – be it commanding respect, demanding actions through law, using bribery, or even imparting fear. This printing of the works of Macchiavelli features ‘The Prince’ translated into French by Sieur de Briencour.

         Grammaire Générale et Raisonnée. Contenant les fondemens de l'art de parler; expliquez d'une manière claire et naturelle. Les raisons de ce qui est commun à toutes les langues, et des principales différences qui s'y rencontrent. Et plusieurs remarques nouvelles sur la Langue Françoise. Seconde édition reveuë et augmentée de nouveau.

      A Paris, chez Pierre Lepetit, 1664. - in-12. 157pp. 2ff. (1f.blanc). Plein veau moucheté, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque, petits défauts aux coiffes). Seconde édition, en grande partie originale et fort rare, de la célèbre grammaire de Port-Royal qui fut rédigée par Claude Lancelot (1615-1695), mais dont l'inspiration revient au grand Arnauld (1612-1694). "La 'grammaire de Port-Royal' est l'un des textes les plus célèbres de l'histoire des théories linguistiques. ( ) Elle constitue la première présentation conséquente (dans le sillage du rationalisme cartésien) d'un programme scientifique qui va dominer l'Europe des Lumières, jusqu'à ce que la grammaire comparée le remette en question. Le langage est l'expression de la pensée qui correspond en tout homme à une structuration universelle. Les règles qui gouvernent les mots dépendent de celles qui régissent les idées que ces mots expriment. Par là, la grammaire de toute langue possède un fond rationnel qui la rapproche de la logique; c'est au reste dans leur logique que les Messieurs de Port-Royal exposeront leur théorie du verbe et des propositions incidentes" (En Français dans le Texte). Papillon manuscrit ancien glissé dans l'ouvrage: "Extrêmement rare, beaucoup plus rare que la Logique". Ex-libris manuscrit ancien d'un séminaire sur la page de titre. Très bon exemplaire. En Français dans le Texte, 99 (pour l'édition originale de 1660). [Attributes: First Edition]

         Habiti antichi, overo raccolta di figure delineate dal gran Titiano, e da Cesare Vecellio suo fratello... -

      Venezia, Combi e La Nou, 1664. In-8 (188 x 114 mm.). Bella legatura recente in pieno marocchino blu scuro, dorso con titolo e ricchi fregi impressi in oro. Con 415 costumi a tre quarti di pagina inc. in legno. (14), 415, (1) pp.; piccola abrasione al frontespizio e qualche insignificante macchiolina: esemplare molto ben conservato, con incisioni nitide e ben impresse, in una legatura sobria ed elegante. La più ampia e celebre raccolta di costumi del periodo, originariamente pubblicata nel 1590 e ristampata nel 1598 con l'aggiunta dei costumi americani. Questa è la terza edizione in cui, per la prima volta, è citato Tiziano (1480-1576); il celebre artista fu molto vicino al suo parente Cesare Vecellio, ma è improbabile che abbia contribuito a disegnare i costumi (sembra che l'attribuzione sia dovuta a motivi commerciali). 294 costumi riguardano l'Europa (di cui 190 l'Italia), 50 la Turchia, e 71 l'Africa, l'Asia e l'America; sotto ogni figura c'è un breve commento. Olschki, Choix, 258. Sabin 98732. UCBA II, 2041. Colas 2978. Lipperheide 23. Third edition of the most complete of the early costume books. With 415 woodcut costumes. Title with small abrasion and some rare and very mild soiling; overall an attractive copy with good and neat impressions of the plates, nicely bound in modern dark blue morocco, richly gilt spine.

         Habiti antichi overo raccolta di figure delineate dal Gran Titiano, e da Cesare Vecellio

      per Combi and LaNou (al colophon: in Venetia, appresso Capo Francesco Bodio), 1664. Cm. 19, pp. (14) 415 (1) [carta preliminare bianca assente]. Con 415 splendide ill. xilografiche a piena pagina (ciascuna accompagnata da didascalia esplicativa) raffiguranti antichi costumi, dei quali circa 300 europei (un centinaio veneziani) e i rimanenti asiatici, africani e americani; marchio tip. a frontespizio e colophon, capilettera ornati e graziosi finalini. Preziosa legatura ottocentesca in pieno marocchino verde; dorso a cinque nervi con titoli in oro, dentelles interne e tagli dorati. Qualche trascurabile e sporadica macchietta. Bellissimo esemplare, caratterizzato da una non comune freschezza delle carte. Cesare Vecellio (Pieve di Cadore, 1521 â€" Venezia, 1601) fu pittore e disegnatore; figlio di Ettore cugino del grande Tiziano, imparò l'arte pittorica nella bottega tizianesca. Magnifico esemplare della più ampia raccolta di costumi edita nel Cinquecento. In questa edizione per la prima volta è citato proprio Tiziano come coautore dei disegni, anche se la critica è tralatiziamente discordante in merito al suo effettivo operato (la tesi ad es. è respinta in Tiziano e la xilografia veneziana del Cinquecento. Catalogo a cura di Michelangelo Muraro e David Rosand, Vicenza 1976 p. 143-144). Terza edizione, curata da Salustio Piobbici. Cfr. Brunet V, 1104; Olschki, Choix, 258; cfr. R. Colas, Bibliographie generale du costume et de la mode, Paris 1933 n. 2978..

         Du respect deu aux Eglises et aux Prestres.

      Caen, Jean Cavelier, 1664. - in-12. 12ff. 185pp. 9ff. Plein vélin souple, dos lisse, inscription manuscrite à l'encre et étiquette papier au dos (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale rarissime, imprimée à Caen où l'auteur résidait, de ce petit traité historique, par le célèbre abbé Michel de Saint-Martin (1614-1687). Fils d'un commerçant qui avait fait fortune en Amérique et qui avait acheté des lettres de noblesse l'autorisant à porter le titre de "Marquis de Miskou en Canada", Michel de Saint-Martin (1614-1687) fut l'une des personnalités les plus originales de son temps. Il se faisait non seulement remarquer par sa tenue vestimentaire, habituellement composée d'une superposition de sept chemises, sept bas et sept calottes, mais aussi par son extraordinaire crédulité qui lui attira bien des moqueries de la part de ses contemporains. "Voici l'écrivain le plus excentrique, le plus bizarre, le plus divertissant, le seul qui puisse enlever à Catherinot ou à Bluet d'Arbères, comte de Permission, le sceptre de l'originalité" (Dinaux). Sa vanité legendaire lui valut d'être la victime d'une célèbre supercherie: au moment du retour du premier ambassadeur de France en Siam, Alexandre de Chaumont, on fit croire à l'abbé que l'Empereur, ayant eu vent de ses qualités exceptionnelles, avait demandé au Roi de France la permission de le faire venir pour convertir à la foi chrétienne la population du Siam. Marque d'appartenance manuscrite à la page de titre. Petit manque à un feuillet, sans atteinte au texte. Assez bon exemplaire par ailleurs de cet ouvrage rarissime. Manque à Brunet.

Het is bekend dat de VOC veel aandacht besteedde aan de Heidelbergse Catechismus. Deze catechismusverklaring was dan ook een van de standaardwerken welke meegegeven werd aan boord van de Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, de ziekenbezoeker was gewoon om uit het Schatboek van Ursinus te lezen als men op zee was en tevens werd het werk gebruikt als evangelisatiemateriaal onder de bewoners van de koloniën van de VOC. Het tweede deel is dan ook o.a. opgedragen aan de 'Bewindthebberen der Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie' en prijst hun werkzaamheden om 'het Licht der H. Waerheyt voort te setten tot die blinde Heydenen &c.'. Dit exemplaar heeft een VOC-M band, wat betekend dat het verstrekt is door de VOC kamer van Zeeland welke gevestigd was te Middelburg. De kamer van Zeeland exporteerde één boek op elke drie boeken welke de kamer van Amsterdam exporteerde. Daarnaast werden de boeken voor het gebruik op het schip zelf voornamelijk vanuit Amsterdam geleverd. Hierdoor zijn boeken met het VOC-embleem van de kamer te Middelburg bijzonder schaars.

The front and back cover are gold-stamped with the VOC-monogram of the chamber of Zeeland which was situated at Middelburg. Explanation of the Catechism by the reformed theologian from Germany Zacharias Ursinus, 1534-1583. It is known that the VOC gave a lot attention to the Heidelberg Catechism. Hence this explanation of the catechism was one of the standard works aboard the ships of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The visitors of the sick were accustomed to read from the 'Schatboek' by Ursinus while being at sea and the work was also used as evangelisation-material among the inhabitants of the colonies of the VOC. The second volume is dedicated to the Principal Lords of the VOC ('Bewindthebberen der Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie') and praises their activities for bringing the light of the holy truth to the blind pagans ('het Licht der H. Waerheyt voort te setten tot die blinde Heydenen &c.'). This copy has a VOC-M binding, which means that it was provided by the VOC Chamber of Middelburg. The Chamber of Zeeland (Middelburg) exported one book to every three books the Chamber of Amsterdam exported. Usually the books for the ship's chest were also provided from Amsterdam. Due to these reasons books with the VOC-monogram of Middelburg are exceptionally rare. A fine copy.) The Landwehr, J. (1991). VOC.

In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with English County Maps, a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name Atlas Major, there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of most of the cities of the world (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German.

         KLEEDINGE VAN CANADA

      [Np, but probably Holland, 1664. Engraving, 12 x 7 1/2 inches. Old crease mark across lower left corner, closely trimmed at upper left margin of print. Remnant of tape in upper right corner. A good copy. A fine engraving of an American Indian family consisting of a father, mother, and baby. The man, dressed in decorated shoes, leggings, and cape, is holding a bow and arrow and carries a quiver. The woman, carrying the child at her breast, is also handsomely dressed and is wearing jewelry on her wrists, arms, and across her chest. Although the natives are identified as being from Canada, a palm tree is in the background. The engraving is derived from an illustration originally published in François Du Creux's HISTORIAE CANADENSIS, published in Paris in 1664. The work from which this particular print derives is presently unknown, although the artist and engraver are identified, respectively, as A.a. Diepenbeck and A. Melaer, and "fol. 405" is engraved in the upper left corner. A delightful European representation of an Indian family, most probably produced before 1700.

      Bayreuth, Johann Gebhard, 1664. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe des seltenen und heute wenig bekannten ökonomischen "Bestsellers" des Barock, in dem die Ursachen des Geldwertverfalls nach dem dreißigjährigen Krieg untersucht werden: der Rückgang der Bevölkerung, die "Ausfuhr" von Geld als Kriegsbeute, zu hohe Zölle und Steuern, erhöhte Münzprägung und dabei insbesondere die Prägung nicht vollwertiger Münzen, mangelndes Kreditwesen, Betrug sowie allgemein die schlechte Justiz und Regierung. Das Buch stellt eine Fundgrube ersten Ranges zur Sozial- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte des Barock dar. Das schöne Frontispiz zeigt 12 emblematische Darstellungen unter dem Motto "Das Land voll Segen ist". Das Werk ist eine sehr frühe Veröffentlichung des Erasmus Francisci (1627-1694). Dieser lebte vorwiegend in Nürnberg, wo er im Endter'schen Verlagshaus tätig war. "Durch seine schwächliche Natur an den Schreibtisch gefesselt, erlangte er binnen kurzer Zeit einen bedeutenden Ruf als Autor und Polyhistor." Er gilt als einer der ersten "vollberuflichen Schriftsteller Deutschlands" und wurde von Gottsched zu den "einflußreichsten Autoren der Barockzeit" gezählt (Dünnhaupt). – Das Buch wird heute irrtümlich auch Gottlieb Hosmann zugeschrieben (vgl. Mauser 321 und HAB A 3755). Francisci selbst gibt sich in seinem "Verzeichniß meiner . Schrifften" von 1691 als Autor zu erkennen, dort allerdings mit leicht anderem Titel. Die Zuschreibung an einen G. Hofmann bei Holzmann-B. S. 303 geht wohl auf einen Druckfehler Jöchers zurück, der in Band 4, Spalte 1818 zwar auf diesen Namen verweist, ihn jedoch nicht an der entsprechenden Stelle aufführt; im Ergänzungsband 2, Spalte 2154 dagegen nennt er Gottlieb Hosmann mit diesem Werk. – Sehr schönes, frisches Exemplar, nur gelegentlich minimal gebräunt. Einige zeitgenössische Unterstreichungen in Rot und Schwarz. Ein vorderer Pergamentbund gebrochen. – VD17 23:283473R (nennt Johann Friedrich Schweser als Autor); Dünnhaupt 9; Humpert 65 (ohne Auflösung des Pseudonyms); Kress S. 1268 (inkomplett) und Kroker 722f. ohne Zuschreibung.

At the same time Blaeu was planning a major atlas intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the whole of the known world but progress on so vast a project was slow and not until he bought between 30 and 40 plates of the Mercator Atlas from Jodocus Hondius II to add to his own collection was he able to publish, in 1630, a 60-map volume with the title Atlantis Appendix. It was another five years before the first two volumes of his planned world atlas, Atlas Novus or the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum were issued.

Engraved title-page within broad historiated engraved border depicting scenes of the Spanish conquest, 17 copperplates originally issued by De Bry, engraved by “Iodo. a Winghe” = Jodocus van Winghe (1544-1603), graphically depicting horrors and cruelties; first three leaves, including title, with careful neat paper repairs, title upper margin trimmed with loss of border. Modern half vellum, German paste-paper, title label on upper cover. Ink notation on title: “Ex Biblio Barcheous[?]. 30”; early ownership inscription, “. Archiqnerbgter Buenovicente” [Antigüedades . Bueno Vicente??]” Very good copy. RARE. First Heidelberg printing of this famous and controversial graphic depiction, description and recording of the horrors made by the native Central Americans subjugated by the Spanish conquerors in the 16th century. Parts of the text refer to Mexico, Guatemala, Yucatan, Cuba, Nicaragua, Hispaniola (today Haiti and the Dominican Republic), Jaragua [Xaraqua], Jamaica. The extraordinary illustrations depict scenes of mistreatment, torture and atrocities that were actually done to native Americans under the representatives of Prince Philip II of Spain. The Spanish Dominican friar Bartolomà de las Casas was an eyewitness to some of this and made this record. The original text dates from 1552. In the text the author tells that some 15 million indigenous peoples of the Americas were murdered. This work was part of a larger group of anti-Spanish literature called The Black Legend, that demonized the actions of Spain during this period. / The publishing history of this book is detailed by MacNutt, who tells that the Brevissima Relacion was translated into French, Latin and Italian. The French edition of 1579 contains these same 17 engraved plates, also issued in Amsterdam in 1620; Paris in 1635, Lyons in 1642, and two more French issues in 1697 and 1701. The Italian editions were printed in 1626, 1630, and 1643. A Latin editions, [title vary] were printed in 1582, 1597 and the present issue of 1664. An English edition is recorded in 1583. The famous plates printed by Theodori de Bry, & Ioannis Saurii, were issued in Frankfurt. The present issue contains impressions of all 17 of the remarkable plates printed by De Bry in 1598. / “Despite the fact that Las Casas was the first and most vehement in denouncing the Spanish conquerors as bad patriots and worse Christians, whose acts outraged religion and disgraced Spain, his evidence against his countrymen was diligently spread by all enemies of his country, especially in England and the Netherlands, while Protestant controversialists quoted him against popery, and discovered in the conduct of the conqueors the evidences of Catholic depravity.” â€" McNutt, p. xxvii. Las Casas’ account was largely responsible for the passage of the new Spanish colonial laws known as the New Laws of 1542, which abolished native slavery for the first time in European colonial history and led to the Valladolid debate.
