HOBBES, Thomas.
London, Printed for Andrew Crooke, 1651. Folio, pp. [vi], 1–248, 247–256, 261–396, with an engraved pictorial additional title (laid down) and a folding letterpress table; fore-edge of the printed title reinforced, paper flaw to p. 175-6 resulting in the loss of a couple of letters, some light waterstaining to the upper outer corner of the initial quires, some scattered foxing; withal a good copy in contemporary calf, rebacked with some repairs to the sides, endpapers renewed; ownership inscription of John Horseman (Oxford scholar, correspondent of William Godwin) dated 1797 to the title-page.Hobbes was very interested in the settlement of North America, and was even technically once a landowner there (as an aide to the earl of Devonshire, a prominent member of the Virginia Company in the 1620s). In Leviathan Hobbes refers to the government of Virginia, and, most importantly, he cites 'the savage people in many places of America' as a concrete example of one of his key concepts, the state of nature, 'where every man is enemy to every man', a condition of 'continuall feare, and danger of violent death; and the life of man solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short'.Yet Hobbes's references to America are sporadic: 'The problem of the American Indian in Hobbes's works . . . is akin to the problem of the dog that did not bark in the night: why did Hobbes make so little use of his special knowledge? The answer must lie mainly in his distaste for anything that might tie his argument to empirical questions of fact. But it may also be suspected that the data raised more difficultie … [Click Below for Full Description]

C.), autore di una storia di Roma dalla fondazione (ab Urbe condita libri) alla morte di Druso (9 a. C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754-53 al 293 a. C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a. C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti (come quello del libro XCI, su Sertorio, conservato in un palinsesto, e quelli del libro CXX, sulla morte e la figura di Cicerone, conservati da Seneca il Vecchio), cioè circa un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommarî (periochae) compilati nei secc. 3°-4° d. C., era costituita di 142 libri. Per la stesura di quest'opera, che cominciò tra il 27 e il 25 a. C. e cui attese per tutto il resto della vita, L. si giovò di fonti storiografiche di svariato valore Tito Livio intese scrivere l'epopea del popolo romano, con intenti sostanzialmente non diversi da quelli che spinsero, in pari tempo, Virgilio alla stesura dell'Eneide; per questo le poetiche leggende delle origini sono accolte nella sua storia in quanto rispondenti allo spirito della romanità e tali da avvolgere i primordî del popolo romano in un'aura di veneranda grandezza. L'imparzialità e la nobiltà d'animo di L., riconosciuta da Tacito e Seneca il Vecchio, ci fa maggiormente rimpiangere la perdita di quella sezione dell'opera ove L. trattava dell'età delle guerre civili, a proposito delle quali, come risulta dagli scarsi frammenti pervenutici, lo storico non esitava a dare giudizî, q … [Click Below for Full Description]

Professional paper repair to some pages including title and portrait. Old water stain and minute traces of old worming. Inscribed in Latin on front blank by Walter Kennedy.

"This book, which centred on religious controversies, was allegdly written by Thomas Bayly, a Church of England clergyman who became a convert to the catholic faith.

DESCARTES - LENTULUS, Cyriacus.
Herbornae Nassoviorum, 1651. FIRST EDITION. 12mo, pp. 369, [1] blank; apart from some light browning in places, due to paper stock, a clean copy throughout; bound in contemporary vellum, lightly dust-soiled with a stronger stain to lower board, nevertheless, still an appealing copy, with contemporary ownership signature on front pastedown. Rare first edition of this anti-Cartesian work by Cyriacus Lentulus (1620?-1678), set in the form of a dialogue between "Cartesius" and Lentulus. 'In 1647, Rene Descartes explained why he had chosen to leave France and live in Holland. Not everyone was convinced by Descartes' description of the Netherlands as a hideaway, or of himself as the retiring philosophical hermit cached within it. In 1651, for instance, the anti-Cartesian Cyriacus Lentulus insisted that Descartes' real craving had not been for seclusion, but rather for fame. He pointed out that no place on earth was better for garnering scholarly celebrity than the place in which Descartes has allegedly chosen to make himself invisible - a fact which, he insisted, Descartes knew better than anyone' (Carol Pal, Republic of Women: Rethinking the Republic of Letters in the Seventeenth Century, 2012, p. 27). Further still in the present work, Lentulus 'objects to the rejection of the syllogism in the Discours on the grounds that there is simply no alternative to the use of syllogistic logic for the derivation of conclusions from premises' (Tad M. Schmaltz, Early Modern Cartesianisms: Dutch and French Constructions, 2017, p. 81). On July 1, 1651 Count Louis Henry of Nassau sent a lette … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plein vélin ivoire à rabats, titre manuscrit au dos (reliure de l'époque, petit accroc à la coiffe supérieure). Rare contrefaçon hollandaise du célèbre texte de Milton écrit en réponse à l'Apologie de Saumaise, et publiée la même année que l'originale de Londres. Cette 'Défense du Peuple Anglais', "traduite dans toutes les langues de l'Europe, fit grand bruit et fut même brûlée par le Châtelet de Paris, à l'instigation des prêtres, preuve de la sensation qu'elle produisit en France où il semble que de tous temps ces sortes de condamnations aient été l'apanage des bons livres" (Larousse).

Jeremy Taylor
London: R. Royston. THE RULE AND EXERCISES OF HOLY DYING The extremely rare 1651 first edition of the most famous work by English cleric Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), one of the greatest prose stylists of the English language, often called the "Shakespeare of the Divines". The Rules and Exercises of Holy Dying is usually issued together with The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living, which Taylor published the previous year; but it was first issue here as a separate work. The subtitle reads: "in which are described the means and instruments of preparing our selves and others respectively, for a blessed death, and the remedies against the evils and temptations proper to the state of sicknesse: together with prayers and acts of vertue to be used by sick and dying persons, or by others standing in their attendance; to which are added rules for the visitation of the sick and offices proper for that ministery". The text is the 1651 original. The book was handsomely rebound in about 1909 (as dated in the owner's signature on the second page). The covers are fine leather with a ribbed spine; the inside of the covers are also leather, elaborately decorated; all text edges are gilt. The condition is very good. The covers show minor wear, the only significant flaw being a crack in the top inch of the front spine gutter. The text is firmly bound. An owner bookplate is affixed to the front endpaper. The text has slight soiling, a few water spots, a few light pencil marks; no serious flaw -- really quite well preserved for a text this age. Again, very, very scarce. At present there is no other … [Click Below for Full Description]

"There were a dozen editions of this popular work over two years: one dated 1650...and the remainder 1651 or 1652" [Wikenheiser]. It is worth noting that the 1650 imprint was published in 1651, due to the use of "the old style of dating, under which the year did not officially begin till 25 March. [Maden]. "This is the work which finally cost Milton his eyesight and which Warton characterized as 'the best apology ever offered for bringing kings ot the block.' In 1660, all copies were ordered to be surrendered and, along with Eikonoklastes, "to be burnt by the common hangman."" [Wickenheiser]; This work was commissioned by Parliament during Oliver Cromwell's protectorship of England, and Milton defends the parliamentary party against accusations that the rebels led by Cromwell were guilty of regicide for executing King Charles.; Wickenheiser 2567, Maden 2, Wing M2167, Coleridge 45, Not in Kohler;.

1651. GRANDE VOLUMEIN FORMATO 36 CM X 26 CM CIRCA OTTIMA LA RILEGATURA CONE DA FOTOLìvio, Tito (lat. T. Livius). - Storico latino (n. Padova 59 a. C. - m. 17 d. C.), autore di una storia di Roma dalla fondazione (ab Urbe condita libri) alla morte di Druso (9 a. C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754-53 al 293 a. C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a. C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti (come quello del libro XCI, su Sertorio, conservato in un palinsesto, e quelli del libro CXX, sulla morte e la figura di Cicerone, conservati da Seneca il Vecchio), cioè circa un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommarî (periochae) compilati nei secc. 3°-4° d. C., era costituita di 142 libri. Per la stesura di quest'opera, che cominciò tra il 27 e il 25 a. C. e cui attese per tutto il resto della vita, L. si giovò di fonti storiografiche di svariato valore Tito Livio intese scrivere l'epopea del popolo romano, con intenti sostanzialmente non diversi da quelli che spinsero, in pari tempo, Virgilio alla stesura dell'Eneide; per questo le poetiche leggende delle origini sono accolte nella sua storia in quanto rispondenti allo spirito della romanità e tali da avvolgere i primordî del popolo romano in un'aura di veneranda grandezza. L'imparzialità e la nobiltà d'animo di L., riconosciuta da Tacito e Seneca il Vecchio, ci fa maggiormente rimpiangere la perdita di quella sezione dell'opera ove L. trattava dell'età delle guerre civili, a proposito delle quali, come risulta dagli scarsi frammenti pervenutici, lo storico non esitava a dare giudizî, q … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wilde, Jeremias (17. Jh.):
Amberg, Schönfeld, 1651. Half-vellum. 8vo [105 x 160mm]. (11), 108 pp. With engraved vignette on the title page. Title page slightly lose in the lower part, otherwise in very good condition. Jeremias Wilde was a 17th century doctor from Augsburg, known for writing the first modern work on ants. The present book is based on the writings of classics such as Solomon, Horace, Ovid or Virgil on the subject of ants. De Formica is written in Latin and is divided into 15 chapters dedicated to various aspects of ants: the types of ants, their bodies, their minds (and also their supposed spirit and even religion), their seven admirable qualities, their economical and moral merits, their natural and moral utility. Even though ants are quite praised in Wilde's work, they are also placed unter the category of irrational animals, which, according to the author, does not prevent them from having memory and the capacity for imagination. While this work can, at best, be merely classified as quasi-scientific, it remains the first coherent writing about ants from the modern era. De Formica constitutes an early look into the field of ants, providing a first glimpse into the view of modern people on ants, their state as insects, their inner life, the manner in which they intersect with human life, as well as their importance. This work stands at the borderline between a scientifical work on ants and a spiritual take on the inner life of these praised insects. la Gewicht in Gramm: 550 [Attributes: First Edition]

Robert Burton
ont> Henry Cripps : Oxford, 1651 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very pleasing and scarce, sixth edition of Robert Burton's famous and encyclopaedic work on mental afflictions. With an illustrated title page depicting several individuals with various maladies. With half-title which contains 'the argument of the frontispiece' to the verso. This has an explanation of the images to the illustrated title such as hypochondriacs, jealousy, and the madman. In the contemporary binding. This work was first published in 1621 before undergoing many revisions and expansions in Burton's lifetime. 'The Anatomy of Melancholy' is a medical textbook, regarding melancholia. 'Melancholia' includes, but is not limited to, what is now regarded as clinical depression. Although it is pitched as a medical work, Burton also writes in a philosophical manner. Though talking about a series subject, there is a satirical tone to the work, for which the author, Richard Burton, was known for. The text is animated, often wandering into a sort of stream of consciousness. The work features many quotes from famous historical writers who had touched on the subject of melancholia. Burton was a scholar at Oxford University, and he is best known for this work. He was greatly accomplished in the sciences, also studying and dabbling in mathematics and astrology, as well as being a rector. This work received many popular admirers including Samuel Johnson, Holbrook Jackson and John Keats. This particular copy once belonged to Norman Douglas Simpson, the botanist.

Wilde, Jeremias (17. Jh.):
Amberg, Schönfeld 1651. Half-vellum. 8vo [105 x 160mm]. (11), 108 pp. With engraved vignette on the title page. Title page slightly lose in the lower part, otherwise in very good condition. Jeremias Wilde was a 17th century doctor from Augsburg, known for writing the first modern work on ants. The present book is based on the writings of classics such as Solomon, Horace, Ovid or Virgil on the subject of ants. De Formica is written in Latin and is divided into 15 chapters dedicated to various aspects of ants: the types of ants, their bodies, their minds (and also their supposed spirit and even religion), their seven admirable qualities, their economical and moral merits, their natural and moral utility. Even though ants are quite praised in Wilde's work, they are also placed unter the category of irrational animals, which, according to the author, does not prevent them from having memory and the capacity for imagination. While this work can, at best, be merely classified as quasi-scientific, it remains the first coherent writing about ants from the modern era. De Formica constitutes an early look into the field of ants, providing a first glimpse into the view of modern people on ants, their state as insects, their inner life, the manner in which they intersect with human life, as well as their importance. This work stands at the borderline between a scientifical work on ants and a spiritual take on the inner life of these praised insects. Versand D: 7,00 EUR
