LANCELLOTTI SECONDO
Venezia, appresso Giovanni Guerigli 1627 - Cm. 17, pp. (32) 701 (1) + 1 c.b. Marchio tipografico al frontespizio. Ottima legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con titoli ms. al dorso e tracce di legacci. Sporadiche e trascurabili arrossature. Esemplare ben conservato. Secondo Lancellotti (1583-1643), scrittore perugino di buona fama, sostenne in quest'opera la superiorità degli storici moderni sugli antichi, tesi ribadita in altre opere e che ben si allineava al suo spirito arguto e anticonformista che gli procurò non pochi guai e persecuzioni.Così Piantanida (51): "Opera famosa, assai significativa nella polemica per la superiorità dei moderni sugli antichi, ricca di giudizi curiosi ed interessanti sulla mentalità del secolo e di riferimenti a problemi di critica e polemica letteraria" e Gamba (1954): "è scritta l'opera con le esagerazioni del secolo, ma è dottae ingegnosa, e come tale òodata da Gabriele Naudè, dal Bayle ecc." Terza edizione, uscita quattro anni dopo e dai medesimi torchi dell'originale. Cfr. anche Iccu; Graesse, IV, p. 93. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

SPEED, John
London: Sold by Tho:Bassett in Fleetstreet and Richard Chiswell in St. Pauls Church Yard(1627-[76]). 420 x 540 mm., trimmed affecting the neatline in the two lower corners, otherwise a good dark impression.; A very attractive example from the most prestigious English world atlas of the seventeenth century by John Speed (1552-1629). Orientated with the north to the right this map features the Low Countries in the seventeenth century before they became present day Belgium and the Netherlands. The carte-a-figures bears various national dress flanking both sides and above are found eight views of towns including Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Ghendt, Middelburg, Groeningen, Zutphen, Utrecht and Atrecht. Speed is the most famous of all the English map-makers. His two most celebrated publications are 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain' covering the British Isles, first published in 1611[12] and the 'Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World', first published in 1627. Speed was a tailor by profession with a great interest in history and maps. He wanted to produce an English atlas of the same high standards and quality as those published on the continent. The 'Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World' was published in 1627, two years before the death of Speed. Ownership of the atlas passed through various hands until sometime after 1668 when Roger Rea sold the rights to Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell. Bassett was a specialist in legal books and Chiswell was the publisher for the Royal Society. The final 1676 edition of the 'Prospect' includes eight further maps on s … [Click Below for Full Description]

CARACCIOLO, Marino II, Prince of Avellino
Naples, 1627. Manuscript in brown ink on fine vellum (56 x 76 cm), 42 lines including ornamental heading gilt, ornate floral decorations in blue, magenta and orange, in a legible humanist minuscule, several words in gilt capitals, outer and upper margins with wide ornamental borders in five colours and gilt, incorporating two coats-of arms, two portrait medallions in corners and one medallion depicting the Virgin consoling Christ on the Cross; small hole in lower margin and semi-circular from lower edge slightly, affecting ornamental border (perhaps due to loss of seal). A very good copy, lightly spotted in places; mounted, framed and glazed. This splendid late humanist document conferring a law degree from Naples University to the 21-year old Giovanni Tomaso Compara (of the Neapolitan family now known as Acampora, or D’Acampora) was issued under the auspices of Marino Caracciolo, member of one of the most powerful Neapolitan patrician families. Marino II was Lord High Chancellor of the kingdom, and as such had the right to grant the doctor’s cap or laurea. As Prince of Avellino (1617-30) his Southern Italian town grew considerably and developed into a regional cultural centre. The court attracted artists and writers, such as Giambattista Basile, renowned for one of the earliest collections of fairy tales in Europe, the Neapolitan Cunto delli cunti. Campora passed his degree of canon and civil law ‘summo cum honore, maximisque laudibus’ and this certificate, intended for display, entitles him to ‘lecture on both laws, interpret, comment and practice it’. One of the coat-of- … [Click Below for Full Description]

LITTLETON, Thomas.
London: Company of Stationers, 1627. Small Octavo. Bound in period-style full panelled calf; with decorative blind tooling to boards, raised bands and gilt titles to spine. Binding is tight and shows well. Internally clean, with two very minor incidents of worm damage, showing in margin from title to p.37 and at hinge pp.12-105. A pleasing seventeenth century copy of one of the most significant works in the British legal tradition, commonly understood to be the first textbook on property law. Written during the reign of Edward IV and first published in 1481, Edward Coke, the supreme jurist of the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras, described it as "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science", which may suggest something of the esteem in which it has been held.

1627. Folio. 1 p. With address. To his confidant, the colonel (and later field marshal) Hans Georg von Arnim, dating from the time of their victorious advance on the Danes and the occupation of Mecklenburg, following Wallenstein's creation as Duke of Mecklenburg: "Dieweil der ob[erst] Hausman itzt zum herren reisen thuet als hab ich nochmahls den herren bitten wollen er wolle ein scharfe disciplin halten auf das die länder nicht ruinirt undt per consequens sie undt nacher die arme in desperacion gebracht.

Keep a close grasp on the contributions and taxes from the towns, such as the 4000 men from Rostock and the 1000 horses from Stralsund and Stettin, so that we may use them in case of need.

SETTALA, Lodovico
appresso Gio. Battista Bidelli, Milano. In-4°, pp. (12), 272, marca tipografica incisa in rame al frontespizio, ritratto dell'autore in ricca cornice architettonica, legatura posteriore in piena pergamena con nervi passanti, titolo manoscritto al dorso, legacci. Ottimo esemplare, fresco. Edizione originale. La Ragion di Stato è una teoria sviluppatasi sulla base del pensiero politico rinascimentale e della Controriforma, alla fine del ’500. Assai diffusa in Italia, si propagò poi nel resto d’Europa. Sul significato teorico e pratico da attribuire alla locuzione Ragion di Stato si discusse vivacemente, sin dalla metà del sec. XVI. Soprattutto, nella «ratio» dello Stato venne fatto confluire il concetto di interesse, ossia di utile politico. Nell’interesse così inteso si identificò il criterio che doveva guidare il principe nelle sue decisioni e la norma a cui dovevano conformarsi le azioni di governo. La Ragion di Stato può essere considerata come lo studio delle condizioni dell’esistenza dello Stato, da cui ebbe origine il processo di astrazione e di distinzione dello Stato stesso da coloro (i governanti) che lo impersonano. La trattatistica sulla Ragion di Stato prese le mosse dall’ampio dibattito aperto da Il Principe di Machiavelli e dalla rinnovata fortuna di Tacito durante il XVI sec. La ricerca si indirizzò verso l’esplorazione del rapporto tra politica e morale. La prima esposizione sistematica della teoria della Ragion di Stato si deve all’ecclesiastico piemontese Giovanni Botero, che nell’opera Della Ragione di Stato (1589) intese ripristinare i valori dell’etica s … [Click Below for Full Description]
