HAZART, Cornelius
T'Antwerpen: Michiel Knobbaert, by het professen-huys in S. Peeter, 1683. 1683 Dutch Hazart Church History JESUIT Missions TORTURE Martyrs America AfricaCornelius Hazart was a 17th-century Dutch Jesuit priest and controversialist writer. His "Ecclesiastical History of the Whole World" delivered on the 'controversial' side of church history, as Hazart explored some of the most detestable acts of the church including tortures, imprisonments, wars on religion, and brutal executions, such as drowning, hangings, beheadings, and burnings.This 1683 Dutch printing is taken from the first Antwerp edition from 1667. This book covers church history throughout Europe, including Germany, France, Netherlands, and England,with parts dedicated to the Americas and Africa.

Wijnands, "The Botany of the Commelins" (1983). Corners lightly bumped and rubbed, trivial spots to leather, faint wear to joints, a couple of leaves at the end with pale marginal dampstains, other trivial imperfections, but still a fine copy, quite clean, fresh, and even bright inside, in an unsophisticated binding that is firm and pleasing.This is the rare first edition of the first Dutch flora, composed by a man who came by his knowledge of botany from the marketplace rather than the academy. Jan Commelin or Commelijn (1629-92) was a purveyor of pharmaceutical plants to apothecaries and hospitals, whose success as a businessman led to a position in city government as director of the Amsterdam botanical garden, originally devoted to medicinal plants. His prosperity allowed him to collect exotic plants from the Indies and other Dutch colonies and cultivate them at his estate south of Haarlem. His catalogue of flora indigenous to Holland is arranged alphabetically by the botanical name of the plant in Latin, followed by the common name and information in Dutch about where it grows.

The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli 1683 RARE The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli Published by: Chex Henry Wetstein Printed in: 1683 Pages: 229 ----- Features ----- · Rare Early Printing from 1683 · Frontspiece of the Author Condition The book is in good condition. There are no signatures, bookplates or markings of any kind. The book has been bound in three quarter leather binding. The outside boards have some wear and rubbing, as to be expected given the books age. There is some light foxing. This is an early edition, printed in French by Chex Henry Wetstein in 1683. A rare early copy of Machiavelli's classic. Synopsis The Prince is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics. Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of Machiavelli's works and the one most responsible for bringing the word "Machiavellian" into usage as a pejorative. The descriptions within The Prince have the general theme of accepting that the aims of princes -- such as glory and survival -- can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends. "He who neglects what is done for what ought to be done, sooner effects his ruin than his preservation." ---------- About the Author----- … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli 1683 RARE The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli Published by: Chex Henry Wetstein Printed in: 1683 Pages: 229 ----- Features ----- · Rare Early Printing from 1683 · Frontspiece of the Author Condition The book is in good condition. There are no signatures, bookplates or markings of any kind. The book has been bound in three quarter leather binding. The outside boards have some wear and rubbing, as to be expected given the books age. There is some light foxing. This is an early edition, printed in French by Chex Henry Wetstein in 1683. A rare early copy of Machiavelli's classic. Synopsis The Prince is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics. Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of Machiavelli's works and the one most responsible for bringing the word "Machiavellian" into usage as a pejorative. The descriptions within The Prince have the general theme of accepting that the aims of princes -- such as glory and survival -- can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends. "He who neglects what is done for what ought to be done, sooner effects his ruin than his preservation." ---------- About the Author----- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Troili (Giulio).
Bologna, per Gioseffo Longhi. 1683. 3 parts bound in one, small folio 230 x 325mm, 9 x 13ins bound in original carta rustica - 17th century Italian rough limp boards - sewn as issued, fine repairs to backstrip retaining most of the original lettering, small section to head of top board strengthened, split carefully closed, inner rear board slightly stained, overall fine presentation still, and a thrilling survival. pp (vi), 48 (Parte Prima), 49-120 (Parte Seconda), separate title-page for Parte Terza, pp 64. In all 68 fine wood-cut plates, many delightful and impressive head and tail piece decorations. Head of title-page very slightly waterstained, a few pages slightly yellowed, however overall remarkably clean and crisp. Second Edition. Signed carefully on verso of top cover by Giacomo Ganalloni (?Ganassoni). Having apprenticed with Michaelangelo Colonna, Trioli worked as scenographer at the Farnesi theatre in Bologna. The treatise demonstrates through the fine woodcut plates - each handsomely presented with its decorative border - the practice of perspective in drawing the eye into the stage scene, creating illusions, shadows, buildings, and finally fortification, often using optical instruments, grids, and exercises to transform the purely theoretical, mathematical and geometrical into the practical of stage design and scene-painting. Such works originating in Italy were hugely influential in the large scale Masques of Louis XIV and the beginnings across Europe of modern Opera and Theatre. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
