Niccolò Machiavelli
London: Starkey, Harper, Amery. Written originally in Italian, and from thence newly & faithfully translated into English. The highly sought-after, incredibly scarce literary collectible by the father of modern political thought. Folio.  Eleven works in one. Complete with general title and separate title for each work.  Woodcut chapter initials and headpieces.  This is the rare 1680 First Edition in English of the works of the genius Machiavelli including his two most famous works, The Prince and The Art of War.  His writings forever changed how we look at politics and governance.  It has become a true injustice that his name now retains such a malevolent association.   Machiavelli (1469-1527) was a true Renaissance Man: a political philosopher, musician, playwright and poet.  His most famous work, The Prince, espouses the earliest known realistic approach to maintaining rule (known today as realpolitik).  Although he was maligned for proposing despotic rule, this interpretation of his work is inaccurate; what he stated is that evil actions are to be used only very sparingly, if at all.  This stands in contrast to his other work, Discourses Upon the First Decade of Titus Livius, which strongly supported rule by a republic, including an entire system of checks & balances.  Indeed, he felt that a republic was a far superior form of government than a principality. Regarding The Prince, it states in Printing and the Mind of Man [63, Wing M129]: “Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind — it should be remembered that a parallel work to The Princ … [Click Below for Full Description]

KIRCHER Athanasius & KESTLER, Johann Stephan
Amstelodami, ex officina Janssonio-Waesbergiana, 1680. Fol. mayor (35,2 x 23 cm.) 4 h. inc. frontis grabado al cobre, 248 p., 4 h. de índice. Muchos grabados en texto en madera y al cobre. Piel de época sobre tabla, lomo en tela, esquinas rozadas. Primera y única edición. Publicado justo después de su muerte, reúne muchos de los experimentos a los que Kircher consagró su vida, en su afán por el conocimiento científico. Como curiosidad cabe decir que incluye el primer experimento registrado sobre hipnotismo en animales. Todos los experimentos, pruebas e inventos realizados por Kircher están presentes en este libro. Con numerosas ilustraciones, muchas de ellas en madera y otras al cobre, que muestran y representan instrumentos científicos y sus pruebas empíricas. “Thus in the most varied branches of science Kircher played the role of pioneer. Even medicine received his attention. His scientific activities brought him into correspondence with scholars laboring in the most different fields, as the numerous volumes of his extant letters show. It is to his inventive mind that we owe one of the earliest of our counting machines: the speaking-tube and æolian harp were perfected by him. He was also the inventor of the magic lantern which has since been brought to such perfection and is today almost indispensable.” [Catholic Encyclopedia] Encuadernación rozada en esquinas, cabeza y pie, injerto en esquina inferior externa de frontis, sin afectar al grabado.

Waar op de starren des hemels na 't oogh in 't plat gestelt zyn[.] Tot nut en vermaak van alle liefhebbers der wiskonsten. [c1680-1696]. Large engraved celestial chart with a rotating printed paper ring (volvelle or rete) on an off-centre axis to indicate the part of the sky visible at any date and time and to make a variety of celestial calculations, all for the Netherlands' latitude of 52 degrees. A string with two beads serves as a pointer for aligning the scales in the stationary and rotating parts. With engraved instructions also by Vooght. Coloured by a contemporary hand and mounted on contemporary boards covered with marbled paper, apparently by the publisher, so that it can be folded in half for carrying. The string may be a modern replacement. Vooght's rare star chart and astronomical calculator, here separately issued in portfolio form and in its first state. The chart shows the stars visible from 52 degrees latitude in a polar equidistant projection, with a rotating volvelle or rete to indicate the part of the sky visible at a particular moment. The circular border around the sky image and the outer part of the volvelle include scales with several kinds of data so that the chart can be used for various purposes. One can use the string to align the time in the volvelle with the date in the border of the chart, so that the part of the sky visible at that moment appears inside the volvelle. The chart with its volvelle, scales and string can also be used to calculate times for the rising … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam, 1680. Amsterdam,, 1680. en de andere Eylanden daer ontrent gelegen. [c1680] Double-page engraved chart with fine hand-colour in part and in outline. First large-scale Dutch chart of Cuba and Jamaica - published in Roggeveen's exceedingly rare sea pilot 'Het Brandende Veen'. Roggeveen, born in Delshaven, came to Middleburg, the seat of both the Dutch East and West India Companies, in 1658. He worked for both companies teaching the art of navigation and helped to maintain their collections of hydrographic manuscripts and charts, including Spanish portolans of the West Indies. In the mid-1660s, assisted by his access to these collections, Roggeveen embarked upon compiling a series of large-scale charts of the North American coastline, West Indies, and, later, West Africa. Many of his charts are based upon the earlier large-scale work of Hessel Gerritsz and Joan Vingboons, both cartographers for the Dutch East and West India Companies, but Roggeveen's work was the first to show the whole coastline of North America and the Caribbean. He called this pilot 'Het Brandende Veen' or 'The Burning Fen'; a pun on his name, as 'veen' means 'fen', and a heap of burning fen represents a fire on the coast to guide or warn ships. The first edition of the atlas was published in 1675 by Pieter Goos, however, due to the death of Goos in the same year, and that of Roggeveen four years later, a second edition would not be published until 1680, by which time the plates had been acquired by the chart dealer Jacobus Robijn. Robijn went on to republish the second edition in 1689, with a … [Click Below for Full Description]

As early as 1664 Meurs already received the privilege to publish both a Dutch and French edition of the Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen der Oost-Indische Maetschappy [...] aen de Kaisaren van Japan. The Dutch edition was published in 1669, shortly afterwards followed by translations in German (published by Van Meurs) and English (published in London with Van Meurs' plates). The French edition, however, was delayed until 1680. Presumably the translation got under way after the peace of 1678. Van 4500 voor 3000.

Hague: Very good. Light toning and occasional spotting or foxing. Some underlining and small side notes. A very nice copy, definitely attractive. Please view photos for additional details. Grotius, Hugo (1583-1645). Hugoni Grotii De iure belli ac pacis libri tres, in quibus Jus Naturae & Gentium, article juris pubi praecipua explicantur. - Editio novissima, cum Annotationis auctoris, ex postrema eius ante obitum cura ... - Hagae Comitis: Apud Arnoldum Leers, 1680.

Binding: brown leather with golden ornamental embossments and with a red ribbon, the edges of the book are painted in red; marbled paper sides. De jure belli ac pacis (On the Law of War and Peace) was laid in the 16th century by Spanish theologians Francisco de Vitoria, Francisco Suarez, Bartolomé de las Casas, and Ginés de Sepulveda as they struggled with the legitimacy of making war on the Indians of the New World. Grotius saw his book published for the first time in 1625 at Paris: It studies the legality of war and immediately established itself as a foundational work on the topic. Modern scholars regard it as foundational in international law. This edition contains added scholarship from Joannes Fredericus Gronovius. In addition to De jure belli ac pacis the reader will find two other important Grotius tracts at the rear of the volume: Mare liberum and Libellus singularis de aequitate, indulgentia et facilitate, meaning the volume treats not just of law of war, but natural law, international law, mariti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartolomeo Zappata, Torino, 1680. Volume in folio antico (30x21 cm), legatura coeva in piena pergamena (minime mancanze agli angoli esterni), titolo manoscritto ab antiquo al dorso, bianca, frontespizio con impresa tipografica in silografia, prefazione, sommario degli argomenti di ciascun libro, 8 cc., 1082 pp. Testatine, iniziali e cul-de-lampe ornati. Settima edizione (la prima è del 1656 di Venezia, col titolo Storia delle guerre d'Italia dal 1635 al 1655), notevolmente ampliata, di questa pregiata opera storiografica, strutturata annalisticamente ed in parte fondata sull'esperienza diretta, che procurò all'autore l'invito a recarsi a Torino come storiografo e consigliere di corte nel 1676. I libri VII-XIII trattano delle guerre civili in Piemonte e contengono animate descrizioni degli assedi di Ivrea e Torino. Lo scrupoloso lavoro di ricerca e rigoroso vaglio delle fonti, rende quest'opera una fra le più apprezzate ed accurate descrizioni della storia d'Italia, a cui attingerà ancora, nel secolo XIX, Carlo Botta. Sostanzioso trattato, esteso e prezioso di notizie e conoscenze, assolutamente degno d'attenzione. Il volume presentato è in più che buono stato, malgrado la carta povera secentesca, è del tutto esente da bruniture, rarissime le mende, solo una lieve gora al margine bianco, esterno, inferiore, alle prime carte. D'altissimo valore e di buona rarità.

Frederick de WIT (1630 - 1706)
Seconda edizione della carta nautica del 1680 di Frederick de Wit con mappa marittima delle Indie Occidentali, dell'America Centrale, del Golfo del Messico e della Florida. La mappa offre una rappresentazione abbastanza dettagliata delle isole delle Indie Occidentali, della Florida e dell'America centrale. La costa americana a nord della Florida è esageratamente inclinata verso nord-est, un errore che sarebbe stato corretto all'inizio del XVIII secolo. Allo stesso modo, lo Yuchatan appare in una rappresentazione errata comune alla maggior parte delle mappe olandesi fino alla fine del XVIII secolo. Si noti che il delta del fiume Mississippi non è stato ancora identificato, ma numerosi nomi di luoghi lungo la costa sono rappresentati, seppur in modo congetturale. Il tutto è pieno di linee lossodromiche e illustrazioni di galeoni. Cartograficamente la mappa è parzialmente derivata da quella di Hessel di Gerritsz del 1631 con gli aggiornamenti derivati ??dalla mappa di Joannes van Loon del 1661. Questa mappa fu pubblicata nell'Orbis Maritimus ofte Zee Atlas di de Wit del 1680. Fu incisa da Romeyn de Hooghe. La seconda edizione può essere identificata dalla presenza della costa occidentale del Centro America e dall'aggiunta di New Amsterdam nel quadrante in alto a destra. Due edizioni successive furono pubblicate da L. Renard e dalla famiglia Ottens. Tutte le edizioni di questa mappa sono rare. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva con picocle ossidazioni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A fine and rare old color example of the second edition of Frederick de Wit's 1680 nau … [Click Below for Full Description]

En Brusselas, por Francisco Foppens, 1680. in-4. Titre gravé. 4ff. 455pp. 2ff. Plein vélin postérieur, titre inscrit à l'encre au dos. Première édition espagnole de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes par le militaire, diplomate et homme d'Etat espagnol Juan de Borja y Castro (1533-1606), fils de Saint François de Borgia. Parue en latin en 1581, l'édition originale avait vu le jour à Prague, où l'auteur était ambassadeur d'Espagne. L'ouvrage est richement illustré de 220 planches d'emblèmes gravées, en regard desquelles figurent des notices où sont explicitées les implications morales et philosophiques des emblèmes, dans une langue aux accents poétiques. Le frontispice et les emblèmes furent gravés par Richard Collin (1626-1687), graveur du roi Charles II d'Espagne à Bruxelles. "Juan de Borja fue el primero en España en publicar un libro de Empresas, cuando la ingeniosidad todavía no era el objetivo principal de la literatura. Él está en los inicios de un género -anteriormente muy difundido en Italia- que durante un siglo en España va a tener continuadores" (Bravo-Villasante) Brunissure généralisée du papier, plusieurs feuillets réparés sans manque. Praz, 282. Palau, 33113: "Bella impresión en gran papel". A propos de R. Collin, voir Benézit, I, 986. Sur Borja, cf.

Carta geografica per la prima volta inserita nel'operal Atlas Major, circa 1680. Adornata da cartigli contenenti le vedute e piante di Messina, Palermo, Catania e Trapani, oltre ad una pianta di Messina indicata per errore come Milazzo. Dato il successo che riscosse, la carta fu ristampata nei primi decenni del secolo successivo dagli editori Covens e Mortier e dagli Ottens. Per qualità della coloritura e tipologia della carta assegnamo questa lastra alla tipografia Ottens, datando la tiratura intorno al 1730. Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Map published for the first time in the Atlas Major, 1680 circa. It is decorated with cartouches depicting views and plans of Messina, Palermo, Catania and Trapani, and a plan of Messina erroneously called Milazzo. Due to the great outcome, the map was reissued in the first years of 1700 by Covens and Mortier and by the Ottens. The quality of the colour and the paper make us presume it was published by Ottens, around 1730. Copper engraving, in excellent codnition. L. Dufour - A.

DAPPER, Olfert
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Olfert Dapper was an important 17th-century Dutch physician who made his name from his geography books, even though he never left the Netherlands. "Naukeurige beschryving van Asië" or 'Description of Asia' was Dapper's attempt at describing the Middle East and Western Asia. He discusses important aspects of Arabs particularly their religious affiliations to Mahomet. He also covers cities and ports, trade and goods distributions, animals, cultural and social aspects, government and politics, and national alliances. This 1680 Dutch edition is beautifully illustrated with 30 incredible copper engravings and maps. While all of the illustrations are stunning, the double-page city view of Nineveh is particularly desirable. Other nations described include Iraq, Assyria, Babylon, and Yemen. Special attention is paid to the botanical interests in these areas, including illustrations of indigenous plants and flowers. [Attributes: First Edition]

Comprising what appears to be a full manuscript of a final work on legal reform authored by Jean Baptise Colbert. It is separated into two parts, Civil and Criminal. The first page is a table that describes the work as containing "Des Titres de la nouvelle Ordonnance Civile de L'annee 1667" or the titles of the new civil laws for the year 1667 (1-709pp.) followed by "de Titres Conenua en cette Ordonnance pour le Matieres Criminelle" or criminal law (710-1052pp). Contains articles on prisons, verbal torture, sentencing, par le judgement de mort on Page 997: death sentence. Similar hand-writing samples provide no firm conclusion; likely in the hand of Colbert or possibly his scribe, Nicolas Joseph Foucault. Provenance: stamped "Bibliotheque Henri Rameau" on the front endpaper. (Henri Rameau Library) Jean-Baptiste Colbert (1619 - 1683) was a French politician who served as the Minister of Finances of France from 1665 to 1683 under the rule of King Louis XIV. His relentless hard work and thrift made him an esteemed minister. He achieved a reputation for his work of improving the state of French manufacturing and bringing the economy back from the brink of bankruptcy. Historians note that, despite Colbert's efforts, France actually became increasingly impoverished because of the King's excessive spending on wars.

Wit, Frederick de (1630-1706)
MAP OF CRETE "Insula Candia Ejusque Fortificatio. "Copper engraving by Frederick de Wit, published in Amsterdam c. 1680, with original hand colouring. Size: 46 x 54,5 cm. One of the most decorative maps of Crete, based on the map by S?bastian de Pontault Beaulieu, a French military engineer who had mapped the fortifications of many Mediterranean islands. His map of Crete was published in 1674, only five years after Crete had fallen to the Ottomans after a 21-year siege (the longest siege in history). The Siege of Candia [modern Heraklion], the capital of Crete, was the central event of the sixth Turkish-Venetian War, better known as Cretan War, or War of Candia. It was a conflict between the Republic of Venice and her allies (the Knights of Malta, the Papal States, French volunteers, and pirates from Mani) against the Ottoman Empire and the Barbary States, fought over the Venetian possession of Crete. The war lasted from 1645 to 1669, and was fought in Dalmatia, Crete, and in numerous naval engagements in the Aegean Sea. On the map the seas around the island are filled with galleons and galleys representing this epic struggle. Above the map the title is on a banner held aloft by putti, and the corners have plans of the towns and fortifications of Chania and Heraklion. Under the map are plans of the fortifications of Spinalonga, Rethymno, Tylissos [Thine] and Suda. Price: Euro1.450,- ? ?.

First edition of a very elaborate basic writing course and copy book, minutely explaining the composition of the various calligraphic hands (fran?oises, b?tardes, financieres), as well as pen decorations and drawings. The engraved title-page reads, "L'art d'?crire ou Le moyen d'exceler en cet art sans maistre" (suggesting a break with the ancient tradition of learning by apprenticeship or under a school master) and spells the author's name "Allais", while the letterpress title-page spells it "Alais". The course was designed by Jean Baptiste Allais, dit le Beaulieu, and engraved by Louis Senault, who was a leading writing master in his own right and therefore ideally suited to engrave his colleague's writing book. Some copies were issued with 12 letterpress leaves and many copies are missing letterpress leaves or plates.Lacking five engraved leaves and browned along the edges.
Bookseller: ASHER Rare Books (Since 1830) [Netherlands]
