Amsterdam - G. P. & J. Blaeu, 1683 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A great early edition of this very important work. Very scarce. Leatherbound volume with gilt detailing to the spine, andmarble paper pastedowns. Paolo Sarpi (August 14, 1552 January 15, 1623) was an Italian patriot, scholar, scientist and church reformer. His most important roles were as a canon lawyer and historian active on behalf of the Venetian Republic. In 1619 his chief literary work Istoria del Concilio Tridentino (History of the Council of Trent), was printed at London. It appeared under the name of Pietro Soave Polano, an anagram of Paolo Sarpi Veneto (plus o). The editor, Marco Antonio de Dominis, did some work on polishing the text. He has been accused of falsifying it, but a comparison with a manuscript corrected by Sarpi himself shows that the alterations are unimportant. Translations into other languages followed: there were the English translation by Nathaniel Brent and a Latin edition in 1620, and French and German editions. Its emphasis was on the role of the Papal Curia, and its slant on the Curia hostile. This was unofficial history, rather than a commission, and treated ecclesiastical history as politics. [5] This attitude, bitterly realistic for John Hale, was coupled with a criticism, that the Tridentine settlement was not concilatory but designed for further conflict. This book, together with the later rival and apologetic history by Cardinal Pallavicini, was criticized by Leopold von Ranke (History of the Popes), who examined the use they have respectively made of their manuscript materi … [Click Below for Full Description]

TURNER, Sir James
London, Printed by M.W. for Richard Chiswell, , 1683. Military Essayes of the Ancient Grecian, Roman, and Modern Art of War. Written in the Yeares 1670 and 1671. Folio (308 × 192 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked, red morocco label to spine. Engraved portrait frontispiece, title page printed in red and black, wood-cut headpieces. Light browning, corners worn, else very good. First Edition. Inscribed the front free endpaper, "For His Grace, My Lord Duke of Hamilton." This would refer to William Douglas-Hamilton, 3rd Duke of Hamilton, who had married Anne the daughter of James Hamilton, 1st Duke of Hamilton, with whom Turner had served in the invasion of England in 1648. Described as "one of the most valuable authorities for the history of military sciences", Pallas Armata was the work of man with a wealth of practical experience to draw upon. Turner had graduated as a Master of Arts from Glasgow before joining Lumsden's levies for the Swedish service, seeing much service in the Thirty Years' War and thereafter in Britain in both the Covenanter and Royalist forces. His experiences inculcated in him a brutal but honest freelance ideology; "I had swallowed without chewing, in Germanie, a very dangerous maxime, which militarie men there too muche follow, which was, that so we serve our master honestlie, it is no matter what master we serve." Captured at the Battle of Worcester in 1651, he escaped and fled the country and joined the King in Paris, spending the next "few years in a mixture of royalist intrigue and the search for employment, offering his services ag … [Click Below for Full Description]

War diese Schulreform »dem Wort Gottes konform« im Sinne des mit ihr zugleich eingeführten »Compendium locorum theologicorum« von Leonhart Hutter (1610), so empfand K. dagegen intuitiv richtig »die neuen Geister«, d.h. einige der Reformer um Herzog Ernst den Frommen (1626-1675) von Gotha als Anfang einer Moralisierung der Rechtfertigungslehre im Bunde mit absolutistischer Staatskontrolle: daher setzte er der seit 1636 vorbereiteten Generalkirchenvisitation passiven Widerstand entgegen.

Thorton, John
London, 1683. Engraving with original hand color Framed size: 31 1/8" x 40 1/8" Paper size: 19 ¾" x 29" John Thornton was an English chart-maker and map publisher who revised the earlier work of Edward Wright, Robert Morden and William Berry to construct his excellent ".Mapp of the World." Thornton's beautifully colored map comprises of two sheets and uses Mercator's projection. In this way, it contrasts greatly with contemporary maps by Dutch and French cartographers who characteristically presented the world in two hemispheres. In Thornton's work, the coastlines of the continents are as detailed as seventeenth-century cartographical knowledge would permit. As such, areas in the Indian sub-continent, the north-east parts of Asia, the northwest parts of America, and Australasia are rather loosely delineated. California is also falsely represented as an island, and Novaya Zemlya is shown as a peninsula (in keeping with a 1674 map by Nicolas Witsen). In addition, the interior of North America lacks much detail, and the Great Lakes system is only moderately defined. The most significant feature of the map, however, is the marking of two observations of the magnetic variation just east and west of the straits of Magellan. These observations were made in 1650 during the expedition of Sir John Narborough. On the upper-right corner of the map is also a dedicatory cartouche to Sir James Hayes, Kt., deputy-governor of the Hudson's Bay Company. This is an extraordinarily rare first state example of Thornton's monumental map, and was originally included in his Atla … [Click Below for Full Description]
