ALBERGATI FABIO
In Roma, per Giocomo Dragonelli 1664 - Cm. 21,5, pp. (8) 288 (20). Marchio tip. al frontespizio, capilettera, testatine e finalini in xilografia. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con titoli ms. al dorso e fregi con filetti dorati ai piatti. Evidente alone limitato alla parte inziale del volume, bruniture e fioriture; lavoro di tarlo al margine basso delle ultime carte (margine bianco frastagliato nelle ultime due) con interessamento di alcune parole dell'indice (e in modo meno marcato al margine esterno delle carte preliminari senza interessamento del testo). Esemplare appena discreto, comunque completo e fruibile in ogni sua parte, ideale strumento di studio. Importante opera del letterato e legato pontificio bolognese Fabio Albergati (1538-1606), bolognese, esponente di spicco della tradizione politica della Controriforma. Questo trattato sul perfetto cardinale, pubblicato per la prima volta a Bologna nel 1589, delinea le prerogative politiche e i doveri istituzionali del cardinale; di particolare interesse i capitoli dedicati ad eresie, ruolo della religione, guerra e pace, milizia ecclesiastica, legge, legazioni ed elezione del pontefice. L'Albergati fu anche autore di altre importanti opere politiche: "Trattato del modo di ridurre a pace l'inimicitie private" (Bergamo, 1587); "La republica regia" (Bologna, 1627); "De i discorsi politici" (Roma, 1602); "Le morali" (Bologna, 1627). Raro e ricercato. Cfr. Piantanida, 316; Iccu e per la prima edizione, Adams, A, 435; non in Bozza. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Francisci, Erasmus; pseud.:) Gottlieb Warmund.
Bayreuth, Johann Gebhard, 1664. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe des seltenen und heute wenig bekannten ökonomischen "Bestsellers" des Barock, in dem die Ursachen des Geldwertverfalls nach dem dreißigjährigen Krieg untersucht werden: der Rückgang der Bevölkerung, die "Ausfuhr" von Geld als Kriegsbeute, zu hohe Zölle und Steuern, erhöhte Münzprägung und dabei insbesondere die Prägung nicht vollwertiger Münzen, mangelndes Kreditwesen, Betrug sowie allgemein die schlechte Justiz und Regierung. Das Buch stellt eine Fundgrube ersten Ranges zur Sozial- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte des Barock dar. Das schöne Frontispiz zeigt 12 emblematische Darstellungen unter dem Motto "Das Land voll Segen ist". Das Werk ist eine sehr frühe Veröffentlichung des Erasmus Francisci (1627-1694). Dieser lebte vorwiegend in Nürnberg, wo er im Endter'schen Verlagshaus tätig war. "Durch seine schwächliche Natur an den Schreibtisch gefesselt, erlangte er binnen kurzer Zeit einen bedeutenden Ruf als Autor und Polyhistor." Er gilt als einer der ersten "vollberuflichen Schriftsteller Deutschlands" und wurde von Gottsched zu den "einflußreichsten Autoren der Barockzeit" gezählt (Dünnhaupt). – Das Buch wird heute irrtümlich auch Gottlieb Hosmann zugeschrieben (vgl. Mauser 321 und HAB A 3755). Francisci selbst gibt sich in seinem "Verzeichniß meiner . Schrifften" von 1691 als Autor zu erkennen, dort allerdings mit leicht anderem Titel. Die Zuschreibung an einen G. Hofmann bei Holzmann-B. S. 303 geht wohl auf einen Druckfehler Jöchers zurück, der in Band 4, Spalte 1818 zwar auf diesen Namen verweist, ihn jedoch n … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Vier Ambachten are: Boekhouterambacht, Assenederambacht, Axelerambacht en Hulsterambacht. Copperplate engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Recent hand coloring. Description: This map was published by Joannes Blaeu in 1664. Artists and Engravers: Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) is a famous Dutch Cartographer. His most notable early work was a map of Holland (1604), a fine World Map (1605-06) and Het Licht der Zeevaerdt (The Light of Navigation), a marine atlas, which went through many editions in different languages and under a variety of titles. At the same time Blaeu was planning a major atlas intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the whole of the known world but progress on so vast a project was slow and not until he bought between 30 and 40 plates of the Mercator Atlas from Jodocus Hondius II to add to his own collection was he able to publish, in 1630, a 60-map volume with the title Atlantis Appendix. It was another five years before the first two volumes of his planned world atlas, Atlas Novus or the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum were issued. About this time he was appointed Hydrographer to the East India Company. When he died the business passed into the hands of his sons, Joan and Cornelis, who continued and expanded their father's ambitious plans. Condition: Fine.
