ROSENKRANTZ, Gunde.)
Köpenhamn, Petri Morsingii, 1660. 4:o. (18),+ 326,+ (10),+ 174,+ (6) s. Genomgående med små fläckar, något större på sid. 161 och solkig sid. 185-192 i första pagineringsföljden. Samtida pergamentband med textad ryggtitel i bläck. L. F. Rääfs exlibris. Bibl. danica III, sp. 148. Warmholtz 4674. Med det "Odensehische Vertrag" från 1579 och tryckfelslistan, vilka saknas i somliga exemplar. Gunde Rosenkrantz (1604-75), son till Holger Rosenkrantz, var danskt riksråd. Från 1657 propagerade han ivrigt för att påbörja ett nytt krig mot Sverige och skrev ett antal mycket hårda skrifter mot det nordliga grannlandet och dess krigsförbrytelser mot Danmark, bl. a. denna som författades på danska regeringens uppdrag. 1664 hade han dock kreditorer efter sig och såg ingen annan utväg än att fly till Sverige, och 1670 ansökte den tidigare så ivrige danske patrioten om att bli svensk undersåte, men förgäves. I misär dog han i Helsingborg, inte välkommen vare sig i Danmark eller i Sverige. Vid sidan av politik bedrev han ivrigt teologiska och klassiska studier, och publicerade även en del uppbyggelselitteratur, som delvis även översattes till svenska.

RUSCONI, GIO. ANTONIO. - [EXCEPTIONALLY NICE COPY]
Venetia, Apresso il Nicolini (Francesco Valuasense), 1660. Small folio. Completely uncut in orig. well preserved boards, kept in a protective cloth-box. Title in a large woodcut-border. (12),148 pp. With more than 150 fine engraved woodcuts in the text, half-page and full-page. The content in near mint condition.. The rare second edition of this important and beautiful treatise, which constitutes a summary of Vitruvius' "De Architectura", with 150 large beautiful woodcuts. The work is a successful marriage of highly effective illustrations and concise text.Giovanni Antonio Rusconi (1520 - 1587) was a naval architect and designer of several palaces and churches in Venice. After a fire he worked on the rebuilding of the Doges' Palace supervised by Palladio. He wrote extensively on architecture and played a dominant role in the development of Renaissance architecture; his architectural reputation was however hurt after a cult developed around the architect Palladio, mainly due to his Baroque style with which the stripped down classical style of his erstwhile mentor seemed to compare badly."The most complete architectural library know to us from the sixteenth century is that of the Venetian architect Giovanni Antonio Rusconi. [...] Rusconi´s library included a variety of titles on architecture, geometry, military, agriculture, arithmetic, and poetry." (Anderson, Christy. Inigo Jones and the classical tradition, 2006, p 63)

[Great Britain-Spain Relations]:
London: Printed by John Bill and Christopher Barker, 1660.. Broadside, 13 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches. Affixed at corners to a slightly larger sheet. Near fine. Archivally matted, protected with mylar sheet. An early diplomatic proclamation by the recently restored British monarch, King Charles II, and part of his efforts to encourage British colonial and commercial expansion. Though not formally at war, hostilities existed between Britain and Spain, especially concerning the harassment of commerce at sea and colonies in the Caribbean. Five years earlier, the English under Cromwell had seized Jamaica from Spain, and in 1656, Spain lent their support to Charles II's restoration to the throne. In this document Charles II proclaims that "all prisoners, ships, goods, merchandize [sic], or whatsoever else taken upon one another, either by any of our subjects, or the subjects of our said dear brother, since said time of our arrival in England, be, and shall be, upon due proof thereof, redelivered and restored." At the same time, Charles II was negotiating with the Portuguese against Spanish interests in the New World, especially with regard to Jamaica, which the British ultimately retained. WING C3287.
