        Of the Nature and Use of Lots : A Treatise Historicall and Theologicall

      London : Printed by John Haviland, 1627-01-01. 2nd. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to. Bound in modern fine leather. Gilt spine. 4 raised bands. Fine binding and cover. Late 18th-century armorial bookplate and signature of Sir Richard Vanden-Bempde-Johnstone, 1st Baronet. Clean, unmarked pages with some toning. STC 11671; ESTC S102918. Originally published in 1619, Gataker’s landmark work on lotteries, provoked controversy for its alleged advocacy of the gambling and gaming. Using a great number of historical examples from the writers of antiquity and the Bible, he set out to distinguish the lot and casual events from divine lots. It was Gataker’s lenience towards lotteries for sport that drew the ire of his contemporaries, especially that of James Balmford. Balmford’s argument was the Puritan line that all lots were invoking the power of God, a stance that Gataker himself deplored, that therefore all lotteries were wrong. Gataker has the “distinction of being the first to suggest the employment of random-selection devices as a means of resolving the problem of indifferent choice in public policy situations” (Rescher, Studies in the History of Logic, 2006), a half-century prior to Pascal’s scientific treatise on probability and Fermat.

        Forma Bonum Fragile Est : Einsidlen in Schweitz [Einsiedeln].

Ansicht des Klosters und Umgebung (Siedlungspartien) in Original-Kupferradierung ('Kupferstich'; Blattgrösse 15 x 19 cm, Platte 10.3 x 14.8 cm, Sujet/Ansicht im gedruckten Rahmen 7.5 x 14.3 cm). Blatt marginal leicht stockfleckig (Sujet wenig sichtbar tangiert), in neueren Passepartout montiert. Gesamthaft recht gutes Exemplar in kräftigem Abzug, stellenweise mit feinem Plattenrand u. marginal zartem Plattenton.. Blatt 16 aus: Daniel Meisner et al., Thesauri Philopolitici Tomi Secundi, Pars Prima [od. oder 'Politisches Schatzkästleins Zweyten Buchs, Erster Theil', resp. Bd. 2.1; vgl. die digitalis.

Dies womöglich als Würdigung seiner Verdienste um den Wiederaufbau des Klosters nach dem Brand von 1577. - Lit.: Achtnich/Staudenmann, Schweizer Ansichten 1477-1786, Bern 1978, p. 49; W. u. A. B. Oechslin, Die Kunstdenkmäler des Kantons Schwyz. NA Bd. III.II, Bern 2003, p. 43 u. p. 217 m. Abb. 193 von Version 1638; ebenso bei J. Eberle, Das alte Einsiedeln, 1984, p. 16 f. -- Das Blatt stellt eine der frühesten gedruckten Darstellungen des Klosters von Süden in der quasi alt-neuen Gestalt dar: "Bis zum Brand von 1577 war das Kloster noch ein romanisch-gotisches Bauwerk." (Eberle, p. 18). Eine Ansicht von Norden in der Chronik des Diebold Schilling von 1513 veranschaulicht diese frühere Architektur (vgl. Oechslin, p. 205, Abb. 187). "Der fünfte Stiftsbau, der [nach dem Brand] erfolgte, glich dem vorausgegangenen bis auf einige kleine Abweichungen." (L. Birchler, Die Einsiedler Stiftskirche und ihr Architekt Bruder Caspar Moosbrugger. Augsburg 1924, p. 2). Die Darstellung des Dorfes als Staffage ist dagegen gem. Oechslin frei gestaltet (p. 217). - Die der damaligen Aktualität nicht mehr völlig entsprechende Zeichnung des Klosters durch Meisner/Kieser dürfte weitgehend von einem Kupferstich aus dem Jahre 1597, ausgeführt von Heinrich Stacker, inspiriert sein. Bereits unter Abt Ulrichs Nachfolger, Augustin I. Hofmann, Abt von 1600 bis 1629, wurden z.B. als augenfälligste Um- und Neubauten schon um 1611 ein neuer "Glockenturm auf dem Kirchendach über der Gnadenkapelle [und] ein runder Turm an der nordöstlichen Ecke der Klostermauer", das sog. Salztürmlein, errichtet (Oechslin, p. 217 u. 219). 1612 war ausserdem "der südliche Turmhelm heruntergestürzt. Der südliche Turm wurde im gleichen Jahr repariert, wenig später dann jedoch erneuert. Damals erhielt er seinen auf verschiedenen Ansichten erkennbaren barocken Helm." (Oechslin p. 219; vgl. dazu die beiden Abbildungen in P. Albert Kuhn, Der jetzige Stiftsbau Maria-Einsiedeln, 2. Aufl. 1913, p. 13 u. 17). - Die vorliegende Ansicht zeigt mit einer gewissen Authentizität das Erscheinungsbild des Klosters um das Jahr 1600. Abt Augustins Amtsnachfolger waren danach ihrerseits mit mehr oder weniger bedeutenden Renovationen, Um- und Neubauten beschäftigt, so dass das Fürstliche Stift Maria Einsiedeln als Work in Progress im 17. Jahrhundert ohnehin nur für relativ kurze Phasen einen abgeschlossenen Zustand darbot. Diese Dauerbaustelle "führte dazu, dass man in Einsiedeln im Jahre 1702 beschloss, unter vollständigem Abbruch des alten Klosters, den heutigen, sechsten Stiftsbau zu errichten." (Eberle, p. 17). "1703 begann der Neubau des Klosters nach dem Plane des Einsiedler Laienbruders Caspar Moosbrugger, den die Einsiedler Klostertradition von jeher als den Hauptarchitekten bezeichnete. [..] Vorläufiger Abschluss der Arbeiten am Kloster 1717. [..] 1719 Beginn des Kirchenbaues nach neuen, ganz andern Plänen." (etc.; Birchler p. 3; einlässlich und ausführlich dazu Kuhn, Kap. 3, Der Bau der Stiftskirche 1719-1735 u. Kap. 4, Der Ausbau des Stiftes 1734-1770).

Several leaves numbered incorrectly: 18 wrongly numbered 12, 53 wrongly numbered 48, 60 wrongly numbered 59, 62 wrongly numbered 61, 74 wrongly numbered 65, 91 wrongly numbered 61, 93 wrongly numbered 63, 106 wrongly numbered 103, 108 wrongly numbered 107, and 163 wrongly numbered 193. 4°, mid-twentieth-century polished sheep (only the slightest wear), spine richly gilt with raised bands in five compartments, red leather lettering piece in second compartment from head with gilt author and title, date in gilt near foot of spine, covers with border decorated in blind and gilt armorial super-libris of Miguel de Faria at center, marbled endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled red. Overall in very good condition. Bookplates of Miguel [Braga Leite] de Faria and J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira. ---- FIRST EDITION. This classic biography of Dom Duarte de Meneses deals at great length with the campaigns in North Africa of D. João I, D. Duarte and D. Affonso V. After the capture of Alcacer-Ceguer in 1458, the stronghold was placed under the command of D. Duarte de Meneses, under whom it withstood two sieges. The @Vida also has much information on the unsuccessful attempts of the Portuguese against Tangier, 1463-64. As Oliveira Marques points out in his @History of Portugal (I, 88), the Meneses family was one of the most powerful in Portugal during the fifteenth century, comparable in wealth, prestige and power to some of the typical feudal lords of France and Germany.Although the author of this work proclaimed his support for the House of Bragança, he was nevertheless executed in the Rossio Square in 1641, accused of being a conspirator against the person and government of D. João IV. Innocêncio felt that his works were of such merit and importance that it would have been a great injustice to exclude them from the @Diccionário on the basis of their having been written in Spanish.@Provenance: Both Miguel de Faria and J. Pinto Ferreira were distinguished Portuguese book collectors. Pinto Ferreira, a Portuguese army officer, had significant Camoniana and much on the Restauração, as well as a trove of other books on Portuguese military history. ---- Arouca V28. Innocêncio I, 18.

      Venice & Trevigi: Angelo Righettini, 1627. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo. [16.5 x 10.5]. 128 pp. including title and full-page woodcut of Polo. Bound in 18th C tree-calf with spine in five decorative compartments. Foxing and marginal waterstain to title, light foxing to first and last quires, marginal dye-staining to scattered leaves. Generally good, internally a very clean copy. Scarce early 17th C Italian-language edition of Marco Polo's Travels-"the most widely read" version of this classic travelogue, reprinted from the first published Italian text of Polo's masterwork (Venice 1496). While the Venetian explorer's tale was first circulated in a French-language manuscript, and was initially printed in German (1477), it was the edition in the so-called "Venetian dialect" that was most influential. According to Printing and the Mind of Man, "it is probable that the Italian text was the most widely read by the Mediterranean navigators and traders whose adventurousness so greatly extended our knowledge of the globe" (p. 23). "Marco Polo provided Europe with the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the East produced before 1550" (Lach). Additionally, from the standpoint of Italian literature, Olschki notes "the universal value of his book, the first text of an Italian author written in the vernacular to pass, in various languages, beyond the confines of its native land" (Marco Polo's Asia). In 1271 Marco Polo journeyed overland from Venice to northwestern China in the company of his father and uncle. The Italians spent the next twenty years based in Shantung at the court of Kublai Khan, traveling widely throughout the region as ambassadors before eventually returning to Venice in 1295. Not long after returning from the East, Polo was imprisoned by the Genoese after the Venetians' defeat at Curzola Bay, and it was while in prison that he dictated details of his travels to his fellow inmate Rustichello, a Pisan author of popular romances. Rustichello treated Polo's tale like his other epics, transcribing it in Old French generously sprinkled with Italianisms. The present Righettini edition is illustrated with a full-page woodcut on the verso of the Letter to the Reader, depicting Polo surrounded by four other men as he gestures to his works. The woodcut is possibly a restrike of the woodcut Righettini used for his much smaller (57 ff.) 1590 edition; if not, it appears in the present edition for the first time (see Yule). * Smithsonian (1611 ed.); Bell Library (1620 ed.); Cordier, Sinica, 1971 (mistakenly placing woodcut "hors texte"); Brunet III.1405 (no collation); Yule, The Book of Ser Marco Polo, pp. 560-3 (26-13); PMM 39 (1496 Italian ed.); Lach I.1.34-38

        Il passaggio di Venere sul sole dell'8 - 9 dicembre 1874 osservato a Muddapur nel Bengala. -

      In - 4. Legatura originale in tela marrone, titolo impresso in oro sul piatto superiore. Con 13 tavole litografiche f.t., 3 ripiegate e 8 stampate a colori. (8), 119 pp. Edizione originale di questa non comune relazione. Il primo a calcolare il transito di Venere tra la Terra e il Sole fu Giovanni Keplero nel 1627 e questo raro avvenimento, che si ripete due volte a breve distanza di tempo ma solo ogni 110 anni all?incirca (l?ultimo è del 2012 e il prossimo sarà nel 2117), è sempre stato sfruttato per importanti osservazioni astronomiche. Il passaggio del 1875 non era visibile in Europa, per cui l?Italia organizzò una significativa spedizione scientifica in India diretta dall?astrofisico modenese Tacchini, spedizione che si distinse in particolare per l?utilizzo della nuova tecnica spettroscopica. First edition of a scarce work. The first to calculate the transit of Venus was Kepler in 1627 and this rare event, which happens twice within a few years time but then over a century goes by before it occurs again, has always been used for important astronomical observations. The transit of 1875 was not visible in Europe, therefore a group of Italian scientist led by Tacchini went to India. «The principal aim of this expedition was to make extremely accurate observations of the contacts of the disk of Venus with the limb of the sun by using the spectroscope» (DSB XIII, 232). With 13 lithograph plates, 3 folding, 8 printed in colour. Orig. cloth slightly worn.

        Of the Nature and Use of Lots : A Treatise Historicall and Theologicall

      London : Printed by John Haviland 1627 - 4to. Bound in modern fine leather. Gilt spine. 4 raised bands. Fine binding and cover. Late 18th-century armorial bookplate and signature of Sir Richard Vanden-Bempde-Johnstone, 1st Baronet. Clean, unmarked pages with some toning. STC 11671; ESTC S102918. Originally published in 1619, Gataker?s landmark work on lotteries, provoked controversy for its alleged advocacy of the gambling and gaming. Using a great number of historical examples from the writers of antiquity and the Bible, he set out to distinguish the lot and casual events from divine lots. It was Gataker?s lenience towards lotteries for sport that drew the ire of his contemporaries, especially that of James Balmford. Balmford?s argument was the Puritan line that all lots were invoking the power of God, a stance that Gataker himself deplored, that therefore all lotteries were wrong. Gataker has the ?distinction of being the first to suggest the employment of random-selection devices as a means of resolving the problem of indifferent choice in public policy situations? (Rescher, Studies in the History of Logic, 2006), a half-century prior to Pascal?s scientific treatise on probability and Fermat. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Chilias logarithmorum ad totidem numerous rotundos, praemissa demonstration legitima ortus logarithmorum eorumque usus ... [Bound with:] Supplementum chiliadis logarithmorum, continens praecepta de eorum usu.Marburg: Caspar Chemlin, 1624-1625.

      First edition of Kepler's logarithmic tables, the basis of his monumental Rudolphine Tables, constructed by means of his own original method. Of the greatest rarity, especially complete with the correction leaf and the second part, which gives examples of the application of logarithms and details of their construction. Only one other copy of this work has appeared at auction in the past fifty years.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: The Earls of Macclesfield, Shirburn Castle, with engraved bookplate, shelf-mark on front pastedown, and blind-stamped Macclesfield crest on blank margins of first three leaves. <br/><br/> It was through the use of these tables that Kepler was able to complete his monumental <i>Tabulae Rudolphinae</i> (1627), the superiority of which "constituted a strong endorsement of the Copernican system, and insured the tables' dominance in the field of astronomy throughout the seventeenth century" (Norman). But logarithms played an even more important role in Kepler's astronomical work, since without them he may never have discovered his third law of planetary motion. Kepler discovered this law early in 1618, at the same time that he first had access to tables of logarithms (see below). Moreover, his initial formulation of the third law was (to use modern terminology) in terms of a log-log plot, rather than the more familiar terms of squared periods and cubed distances: "The proportion between the periodic times of any two planets is precisely one and a half times the proportion of the mean distances" (<i>Werke</i> VI, 302). "In a sense, logarithms played a role in Kepler's formulation of the Third Law analogous to the role of Apollonius' conics in his discovery of the First Law, and with the role that tensor analysis and Riemannian geometry played in Einstein's development of the field equations of general relativity. In each of these cases we could ask whether the mathematical structure provided the tool with which the scientist was able to describe some particular phenomenon, or whether the mathematical structure effectively selected an aspect of the phenomena for the scientist to discern" (Brown, p. 555).<br/><br/> After painstakingly extracting from the observational data of Tycho Brahe his first two laws of planetary motion around 1605 (first published in <i>Astronomia nova</i>, 1609), there followed a period of more than twelve years during which Kepler searched for further patterns or regularities in the data. "Then, as Kepler later recalled, on the 8th of March in the year 1618, something marvelous 'appeared in my head'. He suddenly realized that <i>The proportion between the periodic times of any two planets is precisely one and a half times the proportion of the mean distances...</i> why, after twelve years of struggle, [did] this way of viewing the data suddenly 'appear in his head' early in 1618? ... It seems as if a purely mathematical invention, namely logarithms, whose intent was simply to ease the burden of manual arithmetical computations, may have led directly to the discovery/formulation of an important physical law, i.e., Kepler's third law of planetary motion ... Kepler announced his Third Law in <i>Harmonices Mundi</i>, published in 1619, and also included it in his <i>Ephemerides</i> of 1620. The latter was actually dedicated to Napier, who had died in 1617. The cover illustration showed one of Galileo's telescopes, the figure of an elliptical orbit, and an allegorical female (Nature?) crowned with a wreath consisting of the Napierian logarithm of half the radius of a circle. It has usually been supposed that this work was dedicated to Napier in gratitude for the 'shortening of the calculations', but Kepler obviously recognized that it went deeper than this, i.e., that the Third Law is purely a logarithmic harmony" (Brown, p. 555). Kepler further illustrated the importance he attached to logarithms in the famous frontispiece to <i>Tabulae Rudolphinae</i> (which he designed himself): one of the muses standing on the temple is 'Logarithmica', and in her halo shines the number 69314.72 (100,000 times the natural logarithm of the number 2).<br/><br/> "Kepler first saw Napier's tables [<i>Mifirici logarithmorum canonis description</i>, 1614] in the spring of 1617, but he examined them only superficially at that time. Not until 1619 did Kepler have a copy of Napier's tables, but by then he was more familiar with the logarithms in a book of 1618 by Benjamin Ursinus [<i>Trigonometria logarithmica</i>], his former assistant at Prague and Linz, who had adapted Napier's logarithms, abbreviating the tabular data to two places. The value and significance of the new tables now became clear to Kepler" (Belyi, p. 655). "However, he was not content simply to accept the new mechanical aid as he found it. Napier, in his work, had simply presented the tables of numbers without stating how his logarithms were to be computed. So in the first instance his "wonderful canon" must have operated like a magic trick. In fact, in the beginning, mathematicians as serious as Maestlin mistrusted the new aid to calculation. Was it permissible for a rigorous mathematician to utilize numerical tables about whose construction he knew nothing? Was there not danger that employing them might lead to false conclusions, even if the calculation was proved to agree in many cases? When Kepler, during his visit to Württemberg in 1621, discussed these questions with Maestlin, the latter even ventured so far as to observe "it is not seemly for a professor of mathematics to be childishly pleased about any shortening of the calculations." Kepler differed. He wanted to prove and interpret the new aid to calculation by solid methods and subsequently calculate logarithms himself. <br/><br/> "In the winter of 1621-1622 he carried out his plan and composed a book about the subject in which he again demonstrated his fine mathematical instinct. The work was an achievement completely independent of Napier's" (Caspar, <i>Kepler</i>, pp. 308-9). By this time Kepler had received a copy of the work in which Napier described how to construct his logarithms, <i>Mirifici logarithmorum canonis constructio</i> (1619), but he had decided on his own method of construction. "Whereas Napier had approached the logarithms of numbers on the basis of geometrical or, so to speak, kinematical considerations (two points are in linear and parallel motion, one moving uniformly from zero and the other slowing down at a rate proportional to its distance from the end point of the motion), Kepler starts from a purely arithmetic basis ... Kepler writes that for him logarithms were not associated "inherently with categories of trajectories, or lines of flow, or any other perceptible qualities, but (if one may say so) with categories of relationship and qualities of thought"." (Belyi, p. 656). As Gronau (p. 8) states, Kepler was the first to introduce the natural logarithm as a function in the modern sense. He started with the functional equation for the logarithm, <i>L(xy) = L(x) + L(y)</i>, and solved it in a constructive way to compute the values of the logarithm. <br/><br/> "The printing of the logarithm book has an unusual history. Kepler sent the completed manuscript to Maestlin to have it printed in Tübingen. But Maestlin was not interested and postponed the matter. It took considerable effort on the part of Kepler's friend, William Schickard, to get the manuscript back from Maestlin. When this was finally successful in September 1623, Kepler had just been requested by Landgrave Philip of Hesse-Butzbach to remove certain objections in the carrying out of logarithmic calculation. Therefore, he felt obliged to leave the printing of the work to this prince, to whom it is dedicated, and to leave it to him whether he wanted to order it printed in Tübingen under Schikard's guidance or whether he had some fit person in Frankfurt, who would correct carefully, "because there are lovely types there." Thereupon, Kepler heard nothing further about his opus until, to his great astonishment, he read in the catalogue of the 1624 autumn fair that it had appeared. The Landgrave had had it printed in Marburg without getting in touch with Kepler again" (Caspar, pp. 309-10). Although paginated continuously, the Supplement was published independently the following year, and is not always present. Both Caspar and Zinner give separate references. <br/><br/> With the help of his logarithms Kepler quickly completed the calculation of the Rudolphine Tables. They were ready in December 1623, but publication took a further four years. <br/><br/> Caspar 74 & 75; Cinti 75 (first part only and with the note: 'a quest'opera doveva sequire un supplement nel 1625'); Parkinson, <i>Breakthroughs</i>, p. 72; Zinner 4983 & 5007.

        The Martyrs of Japan.

      [France]: 1627. - Single sheet, float mounted and framed (sheet size: 6 5/8 x 4 ½ inches; framed size: 11 ¾ x 9 ½ inches). Extremely fine etching of the Martyrs of Japan, with faint but visible thread lines and a watermark of an anchor, signed and identified within the plate. Provenance: With the collector's mark of Robert Hartshorne (d. 1945) on the verso (Lugt 2215b), his sale, October 1945, Parke-Bernet. First edition, first state (of 2). L. 594. M. 155. A strong impression of Callot's famous depiction of the 26 Christian martyrs of Japan, produced on the occasion of their beatification. The martyrs are displayed on crosses, their sides pierced by a lance. In the foreground on the left is a man on a horse; to the right there are soldiers sitting in the shade. In the sky, cherubim are guided by St. John the Baptist, preparing palms and crows for the martyrs. In the left corner within the plate it is signed "Callot fec." Along the bottom margin it reads, "Le Pourtraict des premier 23 Martire mis en Croix par la predicaon. de la S. foy au Giappon | soubs l'Empe Taicosam en la Cité de Mongasachi, de lordre des freres mineurs Observantin de S. Francois." " [Emperor] Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-90) who had unified the country [Japan] in 1587, had suddenly issued an order to expel all foreign missionaries. Because Hideyoshi formerly had shown a favorable attitude towards the Kirishitan [Japanese Christian converts], this turn in policy after he had brought the country under a unified regime came like a bolt out of the blue. The town of Nagasaki was confiscated and put under the government's direct control. The expulsion order was not strictly followed, however, it forced the missionaries to avoid activities that might catch the public eye "In 1593 the Governor of the Philippines sent a group with the Franciscan friar Pedro Baptista (1545-97) as ambassadors to Japan. They met with Hideyoshi and received permission to build a monastery in Kyoto, while they were in Japan. While he was negotiating, Baptista was busy doing missionary work claiming that the expulsion order was issued against the Society of Jesus and, therefore, did not concern the Franciscan Order. At this time the Pope in Rome acknowledged the exclusive right of the Society of Jesus to do mission work in Japan. As a consequence, a confrontation began between the Society of Jesus that was under the patronage of the Portuguese monarch and the Franciscans and other mendicant orders who were under the patronage of the Spanish monarch. "Just at that time, in 1596, the Spanish ship San Felipe on a voyage from Manila to Mexico encountered a typhoon and became stranded at Tosa, the island of Shikoku. Hideyoshi, in need of resources for his Korean adventure, seized the rich cargo of the San Felipe. However, seizure of the ship's cargo was unlawful in terms of the Japan-Spain friendship treaty concluded between Hideyoshi and Baptista. In order to turn it into a lawful action Hideyoshi renewed his order to expel the foreign missionaries in 1587 and ordered that the leaders of the Kirishitan in Kyoto and Osaka be executed. "As a consequence of this, six priests and brothers, including Baptista, together with fourteen of their helpers, were arrested in Kyoto. In Osaka three members of the Society of Jesus were arrested, and this brought the total number of those arrested to twenty-four. They had their ears cut off and were sent off to Nagasaki after they had been paraded through the streets of Kyoto, Osaka, and Sakai as a warning. On their way there they were joined by two more. They were all crucified at Nishizaka in Nagasaki, on 5 February 1597. This is known as the martyrdom of the twenty-six Japanese Saints" (Mullins, ed., pp. 10-11). Callot "was one of the first great artists to practice the graphic arts exclusively. His innovative series of prints documenting the horrors of war greatly influenced the socially conscious artists of the 19th and 20th centuries.

        Helvetiorum Respublica: Diversorum autorum quorum nonnulli nunc primum in lucem prodeunt.

      Ex officina Elzeviriana, Lugd[uni] Bat[avorum]. 1627 - Josias Simler (Kappel, 1530-Zurigo, 1576), pastore protestante e teologo, fu autore del primo libro dedicato unicamente alle Alpi, De Alpibus commentarius, e curatore della riedizione della Bibliotheca universalis del Gesner. Dal 1552 professore di esegesi neotestamentaria al Carolinum di Zurigo, dal 1560 occupò la cattedra di teologia. L&#146;autore, aveva risposto inoltre in maniera affermativa alla domanda se la Svizzera fosse uno Stato o meno; la sua riflessione si basò su modelli concettuali analoghi a quelli del federalismo. Nella sua opera De republica Helvetiorum libri duo sostenne che, sebbene la Confederazione fosse priva di un organo esecutivo supremo, uno degli elementi distintivi dello Stato, essa era composta da membri il cui livello di coesione permetteva comunque di parlare di uno Stato svizzero. Nel 1691 Franz Michael Büeler definì la Svizzera uno Stand confederale, ossia come uno Stato, secondo la terminologia di quel tempo. Quando nel 1735 Johann Jacob Leu pubblicò un&#146;edizione rivista dell&#146;opera di Simler, riprese l&#146;idea di Confederale quale Stato federale; la sua presentazione introduttiva della Svizzera costituisce un primo esempio di dottrina federalista. Bel frontespizio figurato. Legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorso a nervi con titoli in oro e decorazioni ai piatti. Formato: 535, [17] p., 11 cm, piena pelle. Buono, ordinari segni d&#146;uso e del tempo, segni d&#146;uso alla legatura ed alcune sezioni di carte un po&#146; brunite, peraltro ben conservato.

"Second edition, fourth issue (STC 17947), and according to Kennedy, ""a mere reprint"" of the first issue of 1625; folio, collating *1-*2, A1-2H6 (in 6's), 2I1-2I4, and paged [4] & 760 columns; internally a very good copy, a bit foxed; later full paneled calf, neatly rebacked, maroon morocco label on gilt-paneled spine; very good. A famous polyglot dictionary, noted for its emphasis on etymology. ""There are many fanciful etymologies, such as ""stepmother,"" one who steps into the place of a mother; and also etymologies that have been confirmed by subsequent historical study. A considerable number of long items are devoted to the exposition of law terms. ""Quite apart from word-lore,"" writes Ernest Weekley, ""Minsheu's work contains vast and various information for every kind of archaeologist, and I can think of few better single volumes for an intelligent Robinson Crusoe""."" (Starnes & Noyes, p. 248). Although this second edition omits two languages contained in the first edition of 1617 (Welsh and Portuguese), it is ""preferred by some for its additions and corrections"""" (see Lowndes, 1569). The book is also a typographic wonder. The liberal use of fonts and design mark the beginning of the conscious design of the lexicon, as such. Kennedy 2719; Alston II, 107; Zaunmuller, p. 304; Graesse IV, p. 533; Vancil, p. 165."

        Helvetiorum Respublica: Diversorum autorum quorum nonnulli nunc primum in lucem prodeunt, unito a Belgii confoederati respublica: seu Gelriae. Holland. Zeland. Traject. Fris. Transisal. Groning. chorographica politicaque descriptio.

      Ex officina Elzeviriana, Lugd[uni] Bat[avorum]. 1627 - Josias Simler (Kappel, 1530-Zurigo, 1576), pastore protestante e teologo, fu autore del primo libro dedicato unicamente alle Alpi, De Alpibus commentarius, e curatore della riedizione della Bibliotheca universalis del Gesner. Dal 1552 professore di esegesi neotestamentaria al Carolinum di Zurigo, dal 1560 occupò la cattedra di teologia. L&#146;autore, aveva risposto inoltre in maniera affermativa alla domanda se la Svizzera fosse uno Stato o meno; la sua riflessione si basò su modelli concettuali analoghi a quelli del federalismo. Nella sua opera De republica Helvetiorum libri duo sostenne che, sebbene la Confederazione fosse priva di un organo esecutivo supremo, uno degli elementi distintivi dello Stato, essa era composta da membri il cui livello di coesione permetteva comunque di parlare di uno Stato svizzero. Nel 1691 Franz Michael Büeler definì la Svizzera uno Stand confederale, ossia come uno Stato, secondo la terminologia di quel tempo. Quando nel 1735 Johann Jacob Leu pubblicò un&#146;edizione rivista dell&#146;opera di Simler, riprese l&#146;idea di Confederale quale Stato federale; la sua presentazione introduttiva della Svizzera costituisce un primo esempio di dottrina federalista. Esemplare unito Belgii confoederati respublica: seu Gelriae. Holland. Zeland. Traject. Fris. Transisal. Groning. chorographica politicaque descriptio di Laet Johannes geografo olandese nato ad Anversa nel 1581. Formato: 359, [10], 535, [16] p., [17] p., 11 cm, perg.
