        De rebus gestis Antonj Caraphaei Libri Quatuor Excellentissimo Domino Hadriano Caraphaeo inscripti.

      Napoli, Excudebat Felix Musca, 1716. 4to. Nice contemporary Italian full vellum binding with gilt title to back. A bit of soiling and averall wear. Internally occasional brownspotting, but overall a very nice copy. Title-page in red an black, full-page engraved portrait of Hadrianus Carafa, full-page engraved portrait of Antonius Carafa, six beautiful large engraved vignettes, and six beautiful large engraved initials. Tissue-guards inserted later. (2) ff. (being half-title and title-page), portrait, (12) ff. (dedication), portrait, 501 pp.. The very rare first edition of Vico's intriguing account of the deeds of Antonius Carafa, the historical biography which the highly influential Enlightenment philosopher, historian, and jurist was commissioned to write about the important seventeenth-century statesman. The work is more than a beautifully printed work by a highly influential thinker about an important Italian statesman, though; it is a rich and enlightened reconstruction of many major historical events and aspects of the contemporary history of Vico, mixed with numerous of Vico's personal opinions. As such, the work is of the greatest interest to historians, philosophers, jurists and political historians, as well as anyone interested in early modern European history; it furthermore gives us a unique insight into the thought of a thinker, whose ideas and opinions, both philosophical and political, have greatly influenced the likes of Marx, Hegel, Goethe, etc. The commission of the work is also that which caused Vico to become interested in the question of the law of nations, and that which led him to discover Grotius' "On the Law of War and Peace" (1625), which came to influence him greatly. The biography of Antonio Carafa is the next major work that Vico writes after his magnum opus, the "Scienza Nouva". "The life of Carafa was a commissioned work, undertaken at the request of Don Adriano Carafa, the nephew of the subject and a former pupil of Vico, and for its composition access to the family archives was given him. It appeared in 1716, in magnificent format, as Vico says "in the Dutch style", and won for its author the praise of Pope Clement XI as well as the friendship of the Italian scholar Gianvincenzo Gravina"." (Camponigri, Time & Idea: The Theory of History in Giambattista Vico, p. 22). Vico later married one of Carafa's daughters, and he has himself said of the work that it was "tempered by honour towards the subject, reverence towards the princes and the just claims of truth." (The Autobiography). Antonio Carafa (1646-1693) was a Neapolitan statesman and diplomat, who immigrated to Vienna in 1662 to serve the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I of Habsburg, in whose service he stayed throughout most of his life. Carafa spent years at the Viennese court, familiarizing himself with the intrigues and learning the secrets of the state and the art of governing here. He became a favourite of the emperor and the Habsburg princes (Charles of Lorraine and Maximillian of Bavaria ) and came to serve as a statesman and diplomat of Leopold I in Vienna, Poland and Hungary. He kept rising through the ranks, as his military experience grew, and he was known for his courage, wisdom, strategic skills and political diplomacy. Eventually he rose to the highest rank in the Austrian military and was appointed Military Governor of, first, Upper Hungary, then Transylvania as well as General Commissary of all imperial armies on all fronts, namely the Rhine, Danube, and Po; he was integral in Leopold's wars against the Ottoman Empire. Towards the end of his career, he came to suffer from infamy, according to Vico due to the jealousy of his rivals, and he was dubbed the "butcher of Eperjes"; he was thus sent back to Vienna, where he died shortly after.The present text by Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) is a historiographical work which sets out to delineate the biography of Antonio Carafa, a statesman much admired by Vico. The work touches on numerous events, in which the important statesman and diplomat was involved, and Vico thus describes in detail, from a contemporary point of view, many highly interesting historical events. These events include THE ALLIANCE'S WAR AGAINST THE TURKS BETWEEN 1683 AND 1694, THE SECOND ENGLISH REVOLUTION OF 1688-1689, THE WAR OF THE AUGSBURG LEAGUE, etc., etc. These events are also valuably commented upon by Vico, for whom they were contemporary and vivid. For a modernist, the present work possesses a rare source of information on a number of important European events, presented in the most interesting manner, by one of modern Europe's great thinkers, and it is thus probably of greater interest to us today than it ever has been. "In his own time, Vico was relatively unknown, but from the nineteenth century onwards his views found a wider audience and today his influence is widespread in the humanities and social sciences." (SEP). In 2004 the first English translation of the work appeared, bearing witness to the renewed interest in this important and interesting work by one of the leading Enlightenment philosophers. "Vico's next major work [after the "Scienza Nuova"], "The Life Of Antonio Carafa" (1716), although somewhat of a by-way in the development of his general thought, contains one relevant point. Whereas, in "On the Study Methods of our Time", he had emphasised the importance of wisdom, virtue and eloquence in training the intellectual to guide the masses, in his biography of Carafa he attributes Carafa's success to his natural, rather than acquired, shrewdness and suggests that formal culture is likely to hinder rather than to promote effective action. This was not a view that he was to maintain in its generalised form, but it is indicative of decreasing confidence in the capacity of the intellectual to bring about political well-being by the methods advocated earlier. At this point it is necessary to turn to the importance of Grotius's influence on Vico, though this is a highly debated matter. Vico may have known something about Grotius's doctrines, probably through discussion, as early as 1708, but as part of his preparation for "The Life of Antonio Carafa", he had undertaken a thorough reading of "The Law of War and Peace"." (Introduction to Vico's "The First New Science" by Leon Pompa, p. XXIII).First editions by Vico are generally of great scarcity, and the present work is no exception, as it is almost impossible to find

        Aus dem Frantzösischen übersetzt.

      Köln, Peter Marteau, 1716. 8:o. (8),+ 198 s. Lättare lagerfläckar från s. 129. Samtida hfrbd, ryggen med tre lätt upphöjda bind, stänkmarmorerade pärmpapper. Ur Carl Gustaf Nordins bibliotek, med hans namnteckning och ur Ericsbergs, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Med ett äldre signum "224" med rött bläck och en "duplet"-anteckning med blyerts. Warmholtz 6835, not. Carlander II, 775f. Första tyska separat tryckta översättningen av den berömda "Les anecdotes de Suède", som utkom samma år. En ny titelupplaga utkom 1722 med titeln "Samuel von Pufendorfs historische Nachlese". En annan tysk översättning publicerades dock redan tidigare 1716, i nummer 25 och 28 av J. J. Schmauss "Bücher und Staatscabinet". Författarskapet till "Les anecdotes de Suède" är fortfarande omtvistat även om den numera oftast tillskrivs Johan Olivekrantz. Den har tidigare oftast tillskrivits Samuel Pufendorf, men han är ej författaren konstaterar Bo Lindberg i SBL. Den har även attribuerats till Samuels bror Esaias, Lapiquetière och Mauritz Wellingk. Historikern Carl Gustaf Nordins (1749-1812) boksamling var enligt Pehr Tham dåtidens största privatbibliotek inom historieämnet. Det såldes på auktion 1815

        Sous le regne de Charles XI.

      A la Haye (Ulm), Charles Charpentier, 1716. 8:o. (4),+ 186 s. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Liten fläck på s. 114 och titelbladet med en bortraderad anteckning. Mycket rikligt med samtida understryckningar och marginalanteckningar med bläck. Samtida halvpergamentband, något nötta marmorerade pärmpapper. Ur Carl Gustaf Nordins bibliotek, med hans namnteckning, och ur Ericsbergs, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Enligt bläckanteckning på frampärmens insida är marginalanteckningarna "ditsatte af en Grefve Dohna". Även en L. Wenners finns omnämnd. På titelbladet finns anteckningen "Zu Wolfenbuttel 24 jan." Warmholtz 6835. Det finns två franska upplagor tryckta 1716, denna tryckt i Ulm med den fingerade tryckorten Haag, och en tryckt i Utrecht med den fingerade tryckorten Stockholm. Denna Ulmupplaga med något sämre franska, räknas som den första, medan Utrechtupplagan är en förbättrad. Ett nytryck av den senare utkom 1718 i Kassel. Författarskapet till "Les anecdotes de Suède" är fortfarande omtvistat även om den numera oftast tillskrivs Johan Olivekrantz. Den har tidigare huvudsakligen tillskrivits Samuel Pufendorf, men han är ej författaren konstaterar Bo Lindberg i SBL. Den har även attribuerats till Samuels bror Esaias, Lapiquetière och Mauritz Wellingk. "Les anecdotes de Suède" är ett kritiskt inlägg mot både högadeln och enväldet. I dess historieskrivning kritiseras aristokratins strävanden att försvaga kungamakten och påstår t.ex. att Johan Gyllenstierna planlagt enväldets införande enbart för att göra kungamakten så förhatlig att ett högadligt oligopol skulle kunna införas. Författarens eget ideal är ett arvrike med begränsade monarkistiska befogenheter (Björn Asker i SBL). Texten har i sin slutliga form troligen tillkommit i slutet av 1690-talet, men tryckts först 1716, efter Olivekrantz död. Möjligen är det fråga om en grundtext av Olivekrantz som sedan kompletterats av den okända utgivaren. Johan Olivekrantz (1633-1707) hette före adlandet Johan Larsson Paulin, och var son till ärkebiskopen Laurentius Paulinus Gothus. Han var en lärd jurist och gjorde en snabb karriär, dels inom diplomatin, dels inom Kanslikollegiet. Bland annat representerade han Sverige vid förhandlingarna i Nijmegen. Hans karriär avbröts dock 1680 och under enväldet hade han endast mindre uppdrag men fortfarande ett stort inofficiellt inflytande, inte minst inom utrikespolitiken. Det finns förstås åtskilliga greve Dohna som skulle kunnat ha använt boken och gjort anteckningarna. Carlander nämner Carl Fredrik Dohna på Tidö (1722-84) men troligen är anteckningarna något äldre. Kanske Fredrik Christoffer (1664-1727) som år 1720 var svensk generallöjtnant och från 1722 president i wismarkska tribunalet. Historikern Carl Gustaf Nordins (1749-1812) boksamling var enligt Pehr Tham dåtidens största privatbibliotek inom historieämnet. Det såldes på auktion 1815
