Fuktrand i nedre hörn genom H- och I arken och med lagerfläckar mot slutet. Mycket fint samtida pergamenband med guldornerad rygg med handtextad titel, guldornerade pärmar med dubbla ramlinjer, blommor i hörnen och medaljong i mitten. Med D'Antivaris pärmstämpel "C:T:A." pressad i svart på frampärmen. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Collijn sp. 528f. Almqvist s. 115. Björne s. 27f. Carlander II, s. 301 resp. III, s. 568. Träsnittsramen är densamma som användes till Nya Testamentet 1549-50 (i Hiertakatalogen (post nr. 1190) kallad för den "Lamensonska ramen", vilket troligen är felskrivet för "Laurentssonska"). Fint exemplar av första upplagan av Loccenius första större rättsvetenskapliga arbete! Det tillkom när Loccenius var professor i romersk rätt och var avsedd att vara en handbok i detta ämne. Det är även hans första bok som dessutom behandlar svensk rätt, även om den delen är av ringa betydelse. En andra upplaga av "Exercitationes" trycktes som bilaga till den andra upplagan av hans "Synopsis" (1653), med separat paginering, och sedan arbetade han in texten helt till den tredje och kraftigt utökade upplagan av "Synopsis" (1673). Johannes Loccenius (1598-1677), som föddes i Holstein, blev jur. dr. i Leiden 1625 och inkallad till Sverige av Gustav II Adolf till en professur i historia i Uppsala samma år. 1628 blev han professor Skytteanus, 1648 universitetsbibliotekarie, rikshistoriograf 1651 och 1667 assessor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Francis Bacon
London - William Lee 1639 - An early copy of Francis Bacon's Sylva Sylvarum. Fifth edition with alphabetical table of the principle things contained within the work, featuring decorative head and tail pieces, and illuminated capitals. To which is added Bacon's A New Atlantis a Worke Unfinished. Autopian workoriginallyreleased in 1627,depicting Bacon's ideas of an ideal land where generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety and public spirit were the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants of Bensalem. The name Bensalem means Son of Peace, having obvious resemblance with Bethlehem and is referred to as God's bosom, a land unknown, in the last page of the work. There has been much speculation as to whether a real island society inspired Bacon's utopia. Scholars have suggested numerous countries, from Iceland to Japan,a city named Bensalem was actually founded in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1682. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific enquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. The Sylva Sylvarum is particularly fascinating as it contains numerous passages dealing with medical treatments for the prolongation of life and the preservation of flesh. Sylva Sylvarumlacks the frontispiece and engraved title page. New Atlantis lacks last leaf. … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]
