Le Memorie di Philippe de Commynes (1447?-1511) rappresentano l'apice della storiografia francese del Quattrocento e fonte di primaria importanza per la comprensione della politica francese ed europea della seconda metà del XV sec. La recente storiografia ha inoltre ampiamente affrontato le influenze di quest'opera anche su pensatori politici quali Guicciardini, Machiavelli e Bodin e in definitiva ha consacrato Commynes quale ideale testimone del passaggio nevralgico fra tardo medioevo e piena età moderna.

        Virginiae partis australis, et Floridae partis orientalis, interjacentiumq regionum Nova Descriptio.

      1640. Mappa di Blaeu della parte sudorientale del Nord America. La mappa mostra la regione dalla Florida del nord alla baia di Chesapeake. La Francia è ancora indicata come stato regnante sulla parte meridionale di queste colonie sebbene fosse stata già da tempo sostituita dalla Spagna, mentre la parte nord-est risulta governata dalla Gran Bretagna. Come indicato da Burden, questa di Blaeu fornisce la migliore rappresentazione della regione fino al 1700, anche rispetto alla mappa di Hondius-Mercator. Il cartiglio decorativo con il titolo circondato da figure di nativi americani, in alto, e l'elaborata calligrafia contribuiscono a renderla una delle mappe di maggior successo artistico dell'America del XVII secolo. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Blaeu's map of the southeastern portion of North America. The map depicts the region from present day northern Florida to Chesapeake Bay. France is shown as governing the southern portion of this land (though they had been forced out in fact some time before by the Spanish) and Great Britain as ruler of the northeast. As pointed out by Burden, this map improves on the Hondius-Mercator map of the same region, and it provided the best depiction of the region until 1700. Its handsome cartouche surrounded by full figure Native Americans and its elaborate calligraphy contribute to make it one of the most artistically successful maps of 17th century America. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, very good condition. Cumming, 41; Burden, The Mapping of North America, 253; Goss, 31

        Nicholas Machiavel's Prince. ... Translated out of Italian into English; By E[dward]. D[acres]

      London: R. Bishop for William Hils & Daniel Pakeman, 1640 First edition in English of one of the great books of the Renaissance and a classic of political philosophy. Machiavelli, long a diplomat for the Florentine Republic, was personally acquainted with many of the great leaders of the Renaissance including Lorenzo de Medici (the dedicatee of Il Principe), Louis XII of France, Emperor Maximilian, Catherine Sforza, and Piero Soderini. In 1502 he was sent as the Florentine envoy to the court of Cesare Borgia, duke of Valentinois. In Borgia he found an audacious and strong willed leader capable of deception and violence to achieve his ends, yet a man who appeared at all times both controlled and diplomatically prudent. Borgia provided the model for Machiavelli's ideal prince, Valentino. His book addressed the problem of the unification of a self-reliant Italy. "It was Machiavelli's intense preoccupation with this problem- what a state is and how to found one in existing circumstances- which caused the many riddles of his speculative writings ... He was by no means indifferent to private virtue ... but in the realm of politics he postponed morals to political expediency" (Britannica 11th ed.). "The Prince is far more than a book of directions to any one of the many Italian princelings. ... Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind. ... Politics was a science to be divorced entirely from ethics, and nothing must stand in the way of its machinery. Many of the remedies he proposed for the rescue of Italy were eventually applied. His concept of the qualities demanded from a ruler and the absolute need of a national militia came to fruition in the monarchies of the seventeenth century and their national armies" (Printing and the Mind of Man 63). Machiavelli is universally regarded as one of the great thinkers in political philosophy. At the same time, Machiavelli's name has entered everyday usage, connoting sinister machinations and the dark side of politics and power. His name was a familiar part of the English language even in Shakespeare's time, for Hamlet says "I'll put the murderous Machiavel to school." Macaulay wrote, "Out of his [Niccolo Machiavelli's] surname they have coined an epithet for a knave, and out of his Christian name a synonym for the devil." Contemporary English gilt-ruled sheep. Some contemporary marginalia and highlighting. Some wear to spine. Fine.

        De iure naturali et gentium, iuxta disciplinam Ebraeorum, libri septem

      excudebat Richardus Bishopius, 1640. Cm. 32, pp. (40) 847 (1) + 1 c.b. Frontespizio in rosso e nero, graziosi capilettera e numerose incisioni xilografiche n.t. Testo in latino ed ebraico. Legatura coeva alle armi in piena pelle [armi di Chrétien-François de Lamoignon de Basville (1735-1789), magistrato e statista francese]; dorso a 6 nervi con titoli e monogrammi in oro agli scomparti; armi al centro dei due piatti inquadrati da triplice filetto dorato. Mancanze di pelle alla legatura (soprattutto in corrispondenza della cerniera anteriore ma con piatti ancora ben saldi, cuffie e punte). Sporadiche arrossature/fioriture, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. John Selden (1584-1654), definito da Ugo Grozio la "gloria dell'Inghilterra", è ritenuto uno dei più originali e influenti intellettuali del Seicento inglese. Le sue posizioni sulla condizione ebraica, la difesa della libertà di stampa e l'elaborazione di un sistema di diritto naturale incardinato sulle leggi ebraiche, gli procurarono inimicizie politiche, l'avversione della chiesa anglicana e soprattutto numerose incarcerazioni. Quest'opera è ritenuta di capitale importanza nell'ambito delle pubblicazioni seicentesche dedicate al giusnaturalismo e alla tradizione ebraica. Rarissima prima edizione in folio, seguita dalle edizioni in quarto stampate nel 1665, 1695 e 1712. Cfr. Iccu; Graesse, VI, 343..

      Artist: Janssonius/ Pitt Moses Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1640 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 39 x 50,5; - description: Map shows the island of Ruegen with decorative heraldic cartouche, windrose and sea monster.; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        De iure naturali et gentium, iuxta disciplinam Ebraeorum, libri septem.Londini, excudebat Richardus Bishopius, 1640.

      Londini, excudebat Richardus Bishopius 1640 - Cm. 32, pp. (40) 847 (1) + 1 c.b. Frontespizio in rosso e nero, graziosi capilettera e numerose incisioni xilografiche n.t. Testo in latino ed ebraico. Legatura coeva alle armi in piena pelle [armi di Chrétien-François de Lamoignon de Basville (1735-1789), magistrato e statista francese]; dorso a 6 nervi con titoli e monogrammi in oro agli scomparti; armi al centro dei due piatti inquadrati da triplice filetto dorato. Mancanze di pelle alla legatura (soprattutto in corrispondenza della cerniera anteriore ma con piatti ancora ben saldi, cuffie e punte). Sporadiche arrossature/fioriture, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. John Selden (1584-1654), definito da Ugo Grozio la "gloria dell'Inghilterra", è ritenuto uno dei più originali e influenti intellettuali del Seicento inglese. Le sue posizioni sulla condizione ebraica, la difesa della libertà di stampa e l'elaborazione di un sistema di diritto naturale incardinato sulle leggi ebraiche, gli procurarono inimicizie politiche, l'avversione della chiesa anglicana e soprattutto numerose incarcerazioni. Quest'opera è ritenuta di capitale importanza nell'ambito delle pubblicazioni seicentesche dedicate al giusnaturalismo e alla tradizione ebraica. Rarissima prima edizione in folio, seguita dalle edizioni in quarto stampate nel 1665, 1695 e 1712. Cfr. Iccu; Graesse, VI, 343. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Set of Six Peonies)

      Nuremberg and Eichstatt 1640 - Six copper engraved plates with hand-colour. Plate size: 50cm x 44 cm. Magnificent plates from "Hortus Eystettensis", one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. The Hortus Eystettensis is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. The garden was begun by Joachim Camerarius in 1596 and, after his death in 1598, completed by Basil Besler, a pharmacist from Nuremberg. A visitor, Philipp Hainhofer, in 1611 marvelled at the eight gardens, each containing 'flowers from a different country; they varied in the beds and flowers, especially in the beautiful roses, lilies, tulips.' The Hortus records this variety and beauty. The book is exceptional in every sense; in its variety and range of flowers, in its size, in its fine quality of engraving. It is also one of the earliest records of flowers from a specific, documented garden. Besler was asked to complete the work by Gemmingen in 1606; the huge nature of the task was clear to Besler and he enlisted the help of his younger brother Hieronymus and Ludwig Jungermann, a nephew of Camerarius. Printing the Hortus may have begun as early as 1607. Drawings were made in situ and from specimens sent by the Bishop to Nuremberg; the Bishop reported to Hainhofer that he had boxes of fresh flowers sent every week to Besler at Nuremberg for sketching. A team of at least 10 engravers were employed to translate the drawings to copperplates. The gardens, along with most of the town of Eichstatt, were destroyed by the invading Swedish troops under Herzog Bernhard von Weimar in 1633-4, although they were partially restored by later bishops. Many of the original drawings survive in the University Library, Erlangen. Nissen 158; Pritzel 745; Hunt 430; Blunt, pp 95-97; Stafleu & Cowan 497
