        La monarchie aristodémocratique, ou le gouvernement composé et meslé des trois formes de legitimes républiques.

Large woodcut title-vignette, one large and several smaller woodcut initials, woodcut headpieces marking the beginning of each part. (20], 562, (10 - index + errata).. The very rare first edition of this milestone work of political science, which contains the first noted occurrence in any modern language of the phrase "political economy", otherwise thought to have been coined by Montchrétien in 1615, four years after the present work. In fact, the present work constitutes a precursor to Montchrétien in almost all ways. Not only does Mayerne-Turquet's masterpiece "La Monarchie" constitute the first attempt at re-creating civil order by activating governmental authority, the first work to re-define the worth of the Old Nobility and establish the Reason State, it also founds the entire "culture of merit" and is furthermore one of the first utopia-programmes for a police-state. "The author of this treatise was a prophet without honor in his own time - indeed, Marie de Médicis's regency banned the essay immediately after its publication in 1611 - but he nonetheless set the essential sociopolitical agenda for the entire ancien régime." (Bailey Stone, The genesis of the French Revolution: A Global Historical Interpretation, 1994, p. 64).It is in fact Mayerne-Turquet's "La Monarchie" that marks the beginning of one of the most important political-economical enterprises, which continues to this day, namely the attempt at generalizing Aristotle's "economics" to the level of "state". "The term "Political Economy" seems to have entered modern discourse for the first time in 1611 in a treatise on government by L. de Mayerne-Turquet. Four years later a fellow "Consultant Administrator", Antoyne de Montchrétien, Sieur de Watteville (c.1575-1621), published his "Traicté de l'oeconomie politique" [1615]". (Waterman, "New Political Economies" Then and Now. Economic Theory and the Mutation of Political Doctrine, p. 1). Like Montchrétien, Turquet de Mayerne wrote his work in response to the horrors of mutually destructive religious conflict. Turquet de Mayerne, who was a protestant, is said to have written the work already in 1591, i.e. seven years before the Edict of Nantes, although it was not published until 1611. As he put it, the "ruins of my own homeland and the miseries of neighboring provinces" led him to investigate the possibilities for repairing the damage and re-creating civil order. And this outline of the recreation of civil order by activating governmental authority and implicitly redefining utility, service, and merit is published four years before Montchrétien publishes his attempts at the same. Both thinkers had the following in mind: "To protect the interests of the entire body of state, the king must establish an efficient and comprehensive political administration. He should broaden his perspective and acquire knowledge of each individual member of his realm. To make full use of his people's strengths, he had to "uncover a thousand sources ... of utility." This implied looking beyond the nobility, honoring all vocations, and, especially for Turquet de Mayerne, recognizing that all subjects had a potential for utility in the royal service. Indeed, Turquet de Mayerne made it clear that "nobility" should be seen not as a qualifying mark of social status but only as a reward awaiting those who crossed the line from private life to public service." (Jay M. Smith, p. 101). "In bringing the government's role into sharper focus for society, Montchrétien and Turquet de Mayerne simultaneously showed the king a society defined by its available resources." (Jay M. Smith, p. 96). "In 1591, a political theorist named Louis Turquet de Mayerne penned an eerily prophetic essay entitled "De la monarchie aristodemocratique". In it, he "proposed a form of government in which the king was the executive and the symbol of the state and presided over the Estates General, the representative body which was the voice of the people, the true seat of sovereignty, and the legislative power." As the "authentic radical" among the old regime's political thinkers, Turquet de Mayerne also "proposed to improve the political system by altering the social structure" - that is, by replacing the primordial clergy, nobility, and Third Estate with a novel social elite of industrious and meritorious Frenchmen. The author of this treatise was a prophet without honor in his own time - indeed, Marie de Médicis's regency banned the essay immediately after its publication in 1611 - but he nonetheless set the essential sociopolitical agenda for the entire ancien régime.If the French Bourbon state wished to compete successfully with its rivals, it would at the very least have to emulate them in harnessing domestic elitist energies to the purposes of foreign policy. In itself, this might not secure the international greatness of the historic Gallic realm, but it was a prerequisite toward that end. Accordingly, the Bourbon monarchs would have to discharge at least three interrelated tasks. First, they would have to admit significant numbers of articulate and ambitious Frenchmen from all three orders into national and local governance..." (Bailey Stone, The genesis of the French Revolution: A Global Historical Interpretation, 1994, p. 64).Turquet's concept about the police and its role in society is also of groundbreaking character. His "La Monarchie" constitutes one of - if not the first - utopias for a policed state. "[w]hat the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century authors understand by 'the police' is very different from what we put under the term. [...] What they understand by 'police' isn't an institution or mechanism functioning within the state, but a governmental technology peculiar to the state; domains, techniques, targets where the state intervenes. To be clear and simple, I will exemplify what I'm saying with a text which is both utopian and a project. It's one of the first utopia-programmes for a policed state. Turquet de Mayenne drew it up and presented it in 1611 to the Dutch States General. In his book "Science in the Government of Louis X I V" , J. King draws attention to the importance of this strange work. Its title is "Aristo-Democratic Monarchy"; that's enough to show what is important in the author's eyes: not so much choosing between these different types of constitution as their mixture in view to a vital end, viz., the state. Turquet also calls it the City, the Republic, or yet again, the Police.Here is the organisation Turquet proposes. Four grand officials rank beside the king. One is in charge of Justice; another, of the Army; the third, of the Exchecquer, i.e., the king's taxes and revenues; the fourth is in charge of the "police". It seems that this officer's role was to have been mainly a moral one. According to Turquet, he was to foster among the people "modesty, charity, loyalty, industriousness, friendly cooperation, honesty." W e recognize the traditional idea that the subject's virtue ensures the kingdom's good management. But, when we come down to the details, the outlook is somewhat different.Turquet suggests that in each province, there should be boards keeping law and order. There should be two that see to people; the other two see to things. The first board, the one pertaining to people, was to see to the positive, active, productive aspects of life. In other words, it was concerned with education; determining each one's tastes and aptitudes; the choosing of occupations - useful ones: each person over the age of twenty-five had to be enrolled on a register noting his occupation. Those not usefully employed were regarded as the dregs of society. The second board was to see to the negative aspects of life: the poor (widows, orphans, the aged) requiring help; the unemployed; those whose activities required financial aid (no interest was to be charged) ; public health: diseases, epidemics; and accidents such as fire and flood. One of the boards concerned with things was to specialise in commodities and manufactured goods. It was to indicate what was to be produced, and how; it was also to control markets and trading. The fourth board would see to the 'demesne', i.e., the territory, space: private property, legacies, donations, sales were to be controlled; manorial rights were to be reformed; roads, rivers, public buildings, and forests would also be seen to. In many features, the text is akin to the political utopias which were so numerous at the time. But it is also contemporary with the great theoretical discussions on reason of state and the administrative organisation of monarchies. It is highly representative of what the epoch considered a traditionally governed state's tasks to be.What does this text demonstrate?1. The "police" appears as an administration heading the state, together with the judiciary, the army, and the exchequer. True. yet in fact, it embraces everything else. Turquet says so: "It branches out into all the people's conditions, everything they do or undertake. Its field comprises justice, finance, and the army."2.The police includes everything. But from an extremely particular point of view. Men and things are envisioned as to their relationships: men's coexistence n a territory; their relationships as to property; what they produce; what is exchanged on the market. It also considers how they live, the diseases and accidents that can befall them. What the police sees to is a live, active, productive man. Turquet employs a remarkable expression: "The police's true object is man."3....What are the aims pursued? they fall into two categories. First, the police has to do with everything providing the city with adornment, form and splendor. Splendor denotes not only the beauty of the state ordered to perfection but also to its strength, its vigor... Second... to foster working and trading relations between men... There again, the word Turquet uses is important: the police must ensure "communication" among men, in the broad sense of the word-otherwise, men wouldn't be able to live, or their lives would be precarious, poverty-stricken, and perpetually threatened... And here, we can make out what is, I think, an important idea. As a form of rational intervention wielding political power over men, the role of the police is to supply them with a little extra life-and, by so doing, supply the state with a little extra strength. This is done by controlling "communication," that is, the common activities of individuals (work, production, exchange, accommodation). (bold emphasis my own)(Michel Foucault: "Omnes et Singulatim": toward a critique of political reason. In Power, ed. JD Faubion, pp. 318-319. 1979).The idea of economy dates back to the ancient Greeks and their thoughts on the proper management of estates. The term later came to signify all that we now understand by economy in a broader sense. The first important modification of the term which comes to play a seminal role in the further development of what we now understand by "economy" is the definition "political economy". The first person to use the term, as far as anyone has been able to determine, was Louis de Mayerne-Turquet, in his "La Monarchie". The work was hugely significant in the 17th century and was banned immediately upon its appearance. Later on, Mayerne-Turquet has been somewhat forgotten and only recently, in the mid 20th century, has his role in the history of political science come to attention. Up until then, Antoine de Montchrétien had been credited with coining the term, in his "Tract of Political Economy", published in 1615, four years after Mayerne-Turquet's "La Monarchie". Like Montchrétien does later, Mayerne-Turquet here scales up the ancient works on estate management in order to show how a ruler should manage a larger estate - here meaning the entire state. In short, with Mayerne-Turquet and later Montchrétien, people became the objects of political economy rather than the subject.After Mayerne-Turquet's coining of it in 1611, "Political economy" retained the same meaning and defined the common effort of public administrators and political thinkers across Europe for nearly two centuries. Only with Adam Smith's "Wealth of Nations" in 1776 is a different meaning suggested, obscuring the normative character of the common interpretation and defining political economy as the set of theories by which we attempt to explain economic facts.In 1572, when the St Bartholomew's day massacre spread to Lyons, Louis Turquet, who had become a protestant, fled with his wife to Geneva. Louis Turquet was an active supporter of Henri of Navarre, afterwards Henri IV of France. He assumed the name of de Mayerne-Turquet, allegedly from a former property in Piedmont. Under that name he published translations of Latin and Spanish works, and political pamphlets, one of which, "De la monarchie aristo-démocratique" (1611), was banned as seditious by the regency of Marie de Médici.The work is now very rare. The title-page is recorded in two states with variations in the imprint (Cambridge University Library catalogue); the present copy bears the version "chez Iean Berjon ... Et chez Iean le Bouc"

        Histoire Universelle des Indes occidentales et orientales, et de la conversion des Indiens. Divisiee en trois parties

      Douai: chez François Fabri, 1611. 3 parts in one volume, folio. (11 7/8 x 7 1/2 inches). 3 letterpress titles within engraved surrounds, woodcut printer's device on the final page of the first and third parts. 23 engraved maps on 20 sheets (19 double-page, 4 small maps printed on a single double-page sheet). (First two titles and some text leaves misbound). Early 18th-century calf, spine gilt in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat pattern in gilt (joints weak, corners bumped). A fine copy of Wytfliet's description of the Americas (the third edition in French), here with the addition of Magini's valuable description of the West and East Indies and Japan. The first edition of Wyfliet's work is "the first atlas of America" (Burden), and was first published in Latin as Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum in 1597. As the title suggests, it was marketed as a supplement to Ptolemy's Geographia, with text based on the writings of Ramusio, Hakluyt, de Bry, Acosta and others. The work was evidently popular as two further Latin editions appeared in 1598 and 1603. The work was then translated into French and combined with the work of Magini and others and first published under the present title in 1605. Further editions of this compilation appeared in 1607 and 1611 (the present edition). The nineteen double-page engraved maps of the American continent appeared in all of the Latin and French editions (but with some changes of state). The first map (a double- hemisphere world map) is based on Mercator's influential map of 1587. There then follows ten maps of South America (the north coast of South America with the Caribbean islands, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica, Chile, Peru, two maps of Brazil, two maps of central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Antarctica/Tierra del Fuego (notable as one of the earliest maps of Antarctica) and eight important maps of North America. In addition to the large double-page maps there are also four small maps on one double-page sheet in Magini's supplement showing the East Indies, Japan, China and the Philippines. Philip Burden gives full details of the American maps in his The Mapping of North America.. 1. Conibas Regio. Burden 100 ("the first printed map of present day central Canada"). 3rd state of 3, with Higuater reading. 2. Estotilandia et Laboratoris Terra. Burden 101, 1st and only state. 3. Nova Francia et Canada. Burden 102 (the first map "to use Canada in its title, and the first to concentrate on the river and Gulf of St. Lawrence"). 2nd state of 2, with date 1597 removed. 4. Norumbega et Virginia. Burden 103 ("only the second [map] to use Virginia in the title). 2nd state of 3, with date removed but latitude mark reading 30 instead of 39 at left side. 5. Florida et Apalche. Burden 104. 1st and only state. 6. Hispania Nova. Burden 105 ("takes in all of present day southern Texas"). 1st and only state. 7. Granata Nova et California. Burden 106 ("the first printed map devoted to California and the south-west of the present day United States"). 1st and only state. 8. Limes Occidentis Quiuira et Anian. Burden 107. 2nd state of 2, with date removed. The map titled Floride et Apalche is of particular note. Largely derived from a map by Ortelius, the source for both maps was the Spanish geographer Geronimo Chaves. "Privy to all of the official reports of the Spanish explorers, Chaves's map recorded the discoveries of Cabeza de Vaca, de Soto, and Moscoso ... The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations, and its reproduction in Wytfliet's popular work helped to correct the previous imaginary concepts of the area" (Martin & Martin).

Des Muliers s'intéressa particulièrement dans ses études à la chronologie, mais il fit également de nombreuses observations astronomiques au moyen d'un télescope personnel. L'ouvrage est loin d'être seulement une compilation, il s'agit d'un relecture et toutes les dates furent recalculées, et Muliers s'intéresse aux éclipses mais également aux méthodes de calcul des différents astronomes. Muliers comprit surtout que l'astronomie n'était pas que des théories basées sur de savants calculs, mais que les calculs astronomiques révélaient la réalité de corps astronomiques, et qu'elle n'était pas non plus ce qu'enregistrait notre perception. - Excudebat Iacobus Meesterus, typographus ordinarius, apud Wilhelmum Ianssonium, Alcmariae, veneunt Amstelrodami _MDCXI., Pet. in 4, 464pp. (28) 77pp. (2), relié. - relié
