[Economics and Politics] [Charles Davenant:]
London: Printed for James Knapton, at the Crown in St. Pauls Church-yard, 1698. First edition. Good overall in original leather boards. Front board is detached and the leather binding is quite scuffed, but the contents are near fine - and this is a work deserving of restoration. The second - and more interesting - part (complete in itself) of Davenant's monumental two-part work, both parts published in the same year. While Part I dealt primarily with "political arithmetick," Part II focuses on the somewhat more lively subject of foreign trade and consists of: "four Discourses... viz. (I.) That Foreign Trade is beneficial to England and (II.) On the protection and Care of Trade, (III.) On the Plantation Trade, (IV.) On the East-India Trade; to which is added the late Essay on the East-India Trade." (with a separate title page and pagination.) The last-mentioned, first published a year earlier, is Davenant's famous essay opposing the protection of English textiles from Indian competition. The essay "On the Plantation Trade" contains a great deal of material on America and the West Indies, the use of slaves and more. ...Index. 434, 64 pp.

Las Casas, Bartolomé de:
Amsterdam. 1698.. [10],402,[2]; [4],51,[1]pp. plus frontispiece. 12mo. 20th-century green morocco by Brugalla, gilt, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Spine lightly sunned. Minor scattered foxing. Near fine. An interesting combination of Montauban's account of his buccaneering voyages against the slave ships off Guinea, and Las Casas' stirring tracts against the brutal treatment of the West Indies natives. Sieur de Montauban was a member of the group of French pirates who took the name "Freres de la Cotes." His hatred for the Spanish and English impelled him to terrorize their slave ships off the West African coast. He became famous for freeing African slaves and for his demonstrated respect for their humanity. Las Casas, the first great historian and humanist of the New World, arrived in Cuba in 1502 and spent most of his time in the Caribbean and Mexico until his return to Spain in 1547. An early critic of Spanish policy, he nonetheless rose to be Bishop of Chiapas. After his return to Spain, he launched a series of attacks on Spanish Indian policy. His tracts, first published in 1551-52 and printed in the present volume in an English translation, denounce Spanish cruelty to Indians in the West Indies and Mexico. This is a translation of four of the nine Las Casas tracts, softened in some of the cruel parts "which might have given pain to delicate persons" (Sabin). The third work, L'ART DE VOYAGER UTILEMENT, is a short, rare, anonymous piece extolling the virtues of "le Voyager." Its author discusses what it takes to join their ranks - courage and rugged strength to endure the … [Click Below for Full Description]

II: Engr. title-page, [1] f., pp. 265?-550; 51 plates, [6 (ads)] ff.. 1698 Ripa's Iconologia first appeared in 1593 in Italian, published at Rome and although unillustrated was an instant success with several subsequent editions and translations into German, Dutch, English, and French. The French is the work of Jean Baudoin (1590??-1650) and it first appeared in 1636. The => 80 leaves of engravings each contain 6 emblems and are restrikes/reengravings of those created by the Dutch painter and engraver Jacob de Bie for the first French edition.

Par J.B. Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt spine extra, rubbed at corners and two spine tips; age-toned and otherwise the occasional spot or instance of light foxing only. => A delightful little duo.

SIDNEY, Algernon
London: Printed, and are to be sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster,, 1698. Published from an original manuscript of the author. Folio (315 × 205 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, blindstamp rule border to covers, neatly rejointed, new contrasting spine label. Joints and spine ends neatly restored, new red morocco label. Front free endpaper with neat tape repair. A few leaves browned; an excellent copy. First edition of this major text of republican theory written between 1681 and 1683 and originally circulated as a manuscript. "Although long and sometimes repetitive the Discourses places Sidney alongside Milton as the master of republican eloquence. It is the power of its prose, as much as any aspect of its content, which helps to account for the work's exceptional subsequent impact in Britain, continental Europe, and America. Polemically a refutation of Sir Robert Filmer's Patriarcha (1680), the practical purpose of the Discourses is again to argue for armed resistance to oppression ... for subsequent influence in Enlightenment Britain, America, the United Provinces, Germany, and France he had no seventeenth-century rival except John Locke" (ODNB). "Sidney was executed in 1683 for complicity in the Rye House Plot, his papers, including the [unpublished] Discourses, being used against him. The indictment cited sentences saying that the king is subject to law, is responsible to the people, and may be deposed, as a 'false, seditious, and traitorous libel'… Sidney's Discourses Concerning Government was not published until 1698" (Sabine, 512).
