HOBBES, Thomas
London: for Andrew Crooke, , 1651 [but actually c.1695-1702?]. or, The Matter, Form, and Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiastical and Civil. Folio in fours (325 x 199 mm). Contemporary mottled calf at some time neatly rebacked with the original decorative gilt spine laid down, early 19th century green morocco label, red speckled edges. Engraved allegorical title page, folding letterpress table. Armorial bookplate (on verso of letterpress title) of Sir Simon Harcourt, first Viscount Harcourt (1661?-1727), lawyer and politician, solicitor-general under Queen Anne; early 19th century armorial bookplate of Harcourt on front pastedown, possibly that of Field Marshal William Harcourt, 3rd Earl Harcourt (1743-1830). Front joint partially split but sound, head of spine chipped, small wormhole through blank lower margin of first two gatherings, scattered foxing, one or two gatherings browned, a good wide-margined copy. First edition, third state, of one of the most famous books of the 17th century: "This book produced 'a fermentation in English thought not surpassed until the advent of Darwinism'" (Pforzheimer quoting DNB). This is the so-called "Ornaments" issue. "The true first edition of the English Leviathan is the so-called 'Head' edition (the name of this and the other early editions is taken from the printer's devices which appear on the title page), published in April or May 1651... Although three editions bear the date 1651, it seems that only one edition was actually published in that year... [Noel Malcolm] argues that the 'Ornaments' [edition] dates from 1695-1702 on the b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Couverture en papier.. Avec privilege du Roy. Represente pour la premiere fois au mois de mai 1651 au Theatre du Marais. [La Scene est Madrid.] Thomas Corneille (20 August 1625 - 8 December 1709) was a French dramatist. Born in Rouen some nineteen years after his brother Pierre, the "great Corneille", Thomas's skill as a poet seems to have shown itself early. At the age of fifteen he composed a play in Latin which was performed by his fellow-pupils at the Jesuit school in Rouen, the College de Bourbon (now the Lycee Pierre Corneille). His first play in the French language, Les Engagements du hasard, was probably first performed at the Hotel de Bourgogne in 1647, although not published until 1656. Le Feint Astrologue, imitated from the Spanish of Pedro Calderon de la Barca, and itself imitated in Dryden's An Evening's Love, came the following year. After his brother's death, Thomas succeeded his vacant chair in the Academie francaise. He then turned his attention to philology, producing a new edition of the Remarques of CF Vaugelas in 1687, and in 1694 a dictionary of technical terms, intended to supplement that of the Academy. A complete translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses (he had published six books with the Heroic Epistles some years previously) followed in 1697. In 1704 he lost his sight and was constituted a "veteran," a dignity which gave him the privileges of an academici … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hobbes, Thomas
London: Andrew Crooke, 1651. First issue, with "head" ornament (rather than "bear") on letterpress title page, additional engraved title, and folding table. Wing 2246. Pforzheimer 491. Macdonald & Hargreaves 42. Folio, bound in full brown calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, red morocco spine label, raised bands. In near fine condition with some of the usual browning to the page edges, small paper repair. A very nice example of this highspot. Leviathan ranks as a classic western work on statecraft comparable to Machiavelli's The Prince. Written during the English Civil War (1642?-1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature. "This book produced a fermentation in English thought not surpassed until the advent of Darwinism. Its importance may be gauged by the long list of assailants it aroused. It was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum 7 May 1703, though all Hobbes's works had previously been condemned in toto, and it still remains a model of vigorous exposition, unsurpassed in the language" (Pforzheimer). "Hobbes had a fundamentally pessimistic view of human nature… [which] had a powerful influence on the framers of the [American] Constitution… During the early years of the Revolutionary period, American leaders found Locke's revolutionary compact ideas more useful than Hobbes' view of the unlimited authority of the state. But as the political and social experience of the 1780s seemed to bear out Hobbes's pessimistic view that men are essentially self-in … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOBBES, THOMAS
London: for Andrew Crooke, 1651. First edition of Hobbes’s Leviathan, a classic of political philosophy and social contract theory. “This book produced a fermentation in English thought not surpassed until the advent of Darwinism. Its importance may be gauged by the long list of assailants it aroused. It was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum 7th May 1703, though all Hobbes’s works had previously been condemned in toto, and it still remains a model of vigorous exposition, unsurpassed in the language” (Pforzheimer). The first edition has the head ornament on the title-page. The bear and triangle ornaments are found on the later editions, which are sometimes mistakenly referred to as later issues. Hobbes’s greatest work, Leviathan is the first comprehensive political system produced in England and one of the most important books in the history of political philosophy. Hobbes argued in part that men must give up certain rights by submitting to the state in order to avoid the “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short” lives resulting from the state of nature’s war of all against all. The frontispiece is one of the most famous illustrations in the history of ideas. Hobbes himself designed the etching in collaboration with the French artist Abraham Bosse. It depicts a giant crowned figure towering over the landscape, clutching a sword and a crozier, beneath a quotation from the Book of Job, “Non est potestas Super Terram quae Comparetur ei” (There is no power on earth to be compared to him). The torso and arms of the figure are composed of over three hundred men, all faci … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Typis Du-Gardianis : Impensis Octaviani Pulleyn, 1651. FIRST EDITION. Small 4to. Engraved allegorical title-page (Zeus) + title-page + 14 ff., 301, [1] pp. Signatures: pi4 a4 B-S4 (including blank leaf C4, but without blank leaves pi1 and Ss4). Evidence of browning and brittleness throughout (frontispiece and first gathering is quite brittle), several leaves at end with a number of edges frayed with loss of text at upper corner of final leaf. Rarely seen with the engraved portrait (present in our copy but worn around corners with significant loss). Very sympathetically bound in recent calf antique, covers decorated with "cat's paw" motif, double gilt fillets around sides, five raised bands on spine, compartments richly gilt, red morocco label in the second. First Edition of the foremost English contribution to Embryology and Reproduction, "the background to the whole of Harvey's work, the source which can amplify his views on many subjects, particularly on topics not fully explained in 'De motu cordis,' such as blood, spirit, innate heat, the soul and the heart" (Whitteridge p. xxiv). Our copy belonged to Etienne Le Moyne and contains numerous MS annotations by him throughout the text. "In 'De generatione,' Harvey's contribution to the future study of embryology was, first, to provide the method which his successors could follow, and this was the method of slow and careful observation many times repeated... His second contribution is his hypothesis that the chick in the egg and the fetus in the uterus both develop alike by epigenesis and in no other way. From this … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hobbes, Thomas
Printed [by Roger Norton and Richard Cotes] for Andrew Crooke, London. First edition (with the distinguishing title-page ornament of a winged head). Allegorical engraved title-page, one folding table at p. 40. [vi], 396 pp. A-2Z4 3A-3D4. 1 vols. Folio. First Edition of Hobbes' Classic of Political Theory. There were three separate editions (not "issues," as they are sometimes mistakenly referred to) of Hobbes' classic, with a title-page dated 1651. This is the true first, with the "head" ornament on the title-page, and the errata uncorrected. A second printing, actually produced abroad with a false imprint, has a bear surrounded by foliage; and a third edition, actually printed around 1680, has a triangle of type ornaments on the title-page and modernized spelling. Hobbes' famous essay on the origin of the State created (and still creates) a storm of controversy, since for Hobbes even the most repugnant authoritarian government is to be preferred over that celebrated Hobbesian state of nature in which anarchic life is "nasty, brutish and short." For Hobbes "the State ? might be regarded as a great artificial monster made up of individual men, with an existence which could be traced from its generation through human reason under pressure of human needs to its destruction through civil strife proceeding from human passions. The individual (except to save his own life) should always submit to the State, because any government is better than the anarchy of the natural state" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

The work was printed and published in Sweden and dedicated to Queen Christina. This is the first work after Boyceau to be devoted entirely to the pleasure garden. The plates were engraved after Mollet's own designs, and greatly influenced the development of the art of gardening all over Europe; the engravings show a variety of arabesque parterres, grand scale landscaping as well as designs for small flower beds, and numerous designs for border shrubs, plants and flowers. They are all delicately executed, most of them by Van Velde. "Andre Mollett was the first to advocate the planting of avenues of trees on an extensive scale. The Mollet family were forerunners of the splendours of Le Nôtre whose work also had wide-spread influence over the Royal Gardens of the seventeenth century" (Hunt). In 1644 André Mollet is registered as "premier jardinier du Roi," living in a house near the new garden of the Tuileries.

Boschini, Marco
Greece: Venice "Marco Boschini Venetiano, al Serinissima Principe E Regal Collegio di Venetia" 1651. Black & white copper engraved map of Crete below the Lion of St Mark of Venice the frontispiece to Marco Boschini's "Il tutti di Regno di Candia" single page, verso blank. A minature map below a powerful engraving of a sword wielding Lion of of St Mark of Venice. The lion holds an open book on which are inscribed the words Pax tibi Marce, Evangelista meus [May Peace be with you, Mark, my evangelist.] It is considered that the lion symbolizes the power of the Evangelist's word, the wings symbolize the spiritual elevation, while the halo is the traditional Christian symbol of holiness. As the symbol of Venice the Lion express also the significance of majesty and power (drawn especially from the upward feline tail), while the book expresses the concepts of wisdom and peace and the halo gives an image of religious piety The open book is a symbol of the state's sovereignty and combined with a sword the two are considered as a symbol of public justice. Published during the the Fifth Ottoman -Venetian war, Boschini appears to be emphasizing the Venetian's valour in defending the Christian Island and all that being part of the Republic meant to the Island, in the face of the Ottoman invaders.

The Latin edition was published by Elsevier in 1644.Plein Scroll of time. Smooth spine with title and date in pen. Brown spots on the vellum. A yellow wetness high margin on the last layers. Lack cover sheets laminated on the parchment. Lack fried inférieur.C'est in 1644 Descartes wrote in Latin the Principa Philosophiae, with attention to clarify and give a sound and rigorous philosophy base to build the unshakable foundations. The first premise of philosophical inquiry, this is the reason, and his method of deduction. The Cartesian project is a universal science, not just philosophical. Principia follow the Disboard on Method (1636) and pétaphysiques Meditations (1641). The aim of the book is amazing, Descartes wants to provide a new metaphysics based on the cogito, which creates a new classification knowledge and new morals, thinking that it operates by the revolution, will give birth to the Enlightenment . --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
