First performed in 1638. Quarto. 19th century marbled wrappers. Engraved title by Abraham Bosse dated 1639, verso blank; printed title, verso blank; 9pp. epistre to Cardinal Richelieu sgd La Calprenede; 2pp. priv dated 15 May and 2 July 1639; 1p. acteurs; 90pp. text. Errors in pagination. Collation:[A]4, B4, A-L4. Some darkening of text, minor dampstains bottom margin. Tchemerzine VI, 333-4. La mort des enfans d\'Herodes, ou, Suite de Mariane: tragedie is a sequel to or continuation of the Tristan l\'Hermite\'s La Mariane (written 1636, published Courbe, 1637 and again in 1639). The tragedy focuses on the character Herod I, King of Jerusalem, after he murders his three sons by Marianne I (whom he also kills in 29BC). As in Tristan\'s play, Herod is not a monster but a vain, passionate, and impetuous tyrant whose character drives him to murder. Calprenede\'s exposition dramatizes a number of scenes in the historical episode certain to engage the Parisian theatre-goer, who would prefer action to narration. La mort des enfans d\'Herodes is based on the historical record in Josephus and described by Father Nicolas Caussin (1683-1651; professor, preacher, dramatist and confessor to Louis XIII), where two of Herod\'s sons were executed in 7BC. The record of public works built by Herod was blemished by the savagery toward the large family produced by his ten wives. It is likely that … [Click Below for Full Description]

SALMASIUS, Claudius,
Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex officina Elseviriorum, 1639.. 8vo. Titelblatt mit Druckersignet in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, (52), 891, (92) S. Gut erhaltener zeitgenössischer Pergamentband auf drei Bünden geheftet, Papier sehr frisch.. Sehr schöner, stilvoller Erstdruck zu Zins und Wucher! - Das katholische Zinsverbot in der mittelalterlichen, agrarwirtschaftlich aufgebauten Welt war relativ einfach aufzustellen und durchzusetzen. Die frühkapitalistische Wirtschaftsordnung veränderte die Situation grundlegend, allein der kapitalintensive Buchdruck verlangte nach neuen Lösungen. Ein striktes Zinsverbot von Seiten der katholischen Kirche war beim besten Willen und auch intensiver Gewissensforschung nicht mehr aufrecht zu erhalten. Lebhafte Diskussionen ergriffen den europäischen Raum. Usura (Zins und Wucher) bildete oft den Gegenstand moralischer, religiöser, auch juristischer Bücher. Die wichtigste zinsrechtliche Schrift des 17. Jahrhunderts war das Werk von Claude de Saumaise (Salmasius), der in einem umfangreichen, einleitenden Vorwort einen historischen Ãœberblick über Zins und Wucher gibt. Salmasius (1555-1653) studierte ab 1604 an der Pariser Sorbonne und wechselte zwei Jahre später zu Dionysius Gothofredus, der zu dieser Zeit in Heidelberg lehrte, wohin er als Calvinist geflohen war. Dort trat er auch zum protestantischen Glauben über und suchte zunächst in Frankreich als Rechtsanwalt sein Glück. Die Heirat mit der Tochter Anne des Philologen Josias Mercier setzte ihn in die Lage, als Privatgelehrter zu wirken. Bald erwarb er sich als Gelehrter europäischen Ruh … [Click Below for Full Description]
