        Die cronycke van Hollant, Zeelant ende Vrieslant. Dordrecht, Peeter Verhaghen, 1591, 1591, 1590. 3 volumes bound as 1. Small folio (30.5 x 20.5 cm). With 3 title-pages, each with a different woodcut full-length portrait (the first count of Holland Dirck I, the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and King Philip II of Spain), 1 double-page engraved map of Holland in part 2 (in its first state), and 36 woodcut portraits in text. Blind-tooled vellum (ca. 1740?).

      - Moes & Burger III, pp. 243-247; K. Tilmans, Historiography and humanism in Holland in the age of Erasmus: Aurelius and the Divisiekroniek of 1517 (1992); Typ. Batava 2994 & 2436; for the map: Blonk, Hollandia Comitatus 20 (2 copies). One of the four issues (differing only in the imprint) of the third major revision and extension of the famous Dutch national chronicle, known as the "Divisiekroniek", the first edition to include the important continuations by Ellert de Veer (to the year 1591), along with the double-page engraved map of Holland, drawn and engraved for the present edition (so here in its first state) by Jan Pieterszoon Saenredam, but often lacking. The work is beautifully illustrated with 36 woodcut full-length portraits in the text, depicting the counts of Holland and their coats of arms. The Christian humanist scholar and Augustinian monk Cornelius Aurelius lived with Erasmus in Paris in 1497-1498, working in his shadow. His chronicle serves as a foundation for the historiography of the Northern Netherlands and he imbued it with an unequivocal patriotism. His new division of Holland's history into the early "Batavian" period, the medieval history of the county of Holland, and contemporary Burgundian-Habsburg history (to 1517), and his critical research into the sources, gave the inhabitants of the Northern Netherlands a new collective historical identity, providing the beginnings of a national consciousness. His work marks the start of the Renaissance historiography of the Northern Netherlands.With owner’s inscriptions. With a small tear in leaf 230 of vol. 2 and leaf 56 of vol. 3, and margins of the first leaves and the map a bit frayed (not affecting the text or map image), but still in good condition. The front hinge has been repaired and the back hinge is cracked, but the binding is otherwise good. A foundational work for Dutch historiography.

        Accuraat geografisch kaart-boekje of zak-atlas van het keyzerryk en geheel Duytsland, de Oostenrykse Nederlanden, ...Haarlem, Bernardus Cleynhens, [ca. 1747?]. Small 8vo (16 x 10 cm). With 25 double-page engraved maps (2 overview maps), and an engraved plate with 8 scales, all hand-coloured, partly in outline. Half textured red cloth (ca. 1860?).

      Koeman I, Cle 1; STCN (2 copies); WorldCat (2 copies). A surprisingly rare pocket atlas illustrating the theatre of the "tegenwoordigen" (present) war, probably meaning the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748) but possibly the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). The title-page notes that it is suited for officers, travellers and lovers of geography to carry in a pocket. The text (in Dutch) gives a geographic description only of "Duytsland" (Germany), including Austria, Bohemia and a few other areas, whereas the maps also cover the Low Countries, the English Channel, northwest France and to the east as far as Warsaw, Krakow and Belgrade. The 23 detail maps were designed so that they could be assembled with the key map to make a single wall map, whose cartographic image would measure 53 x 90 cm.With a contemporary owner's, bookplate, embossed stamp and library labels. With the text leaves somewhat browned, not affecting the maps or the plate with scales, and the first 2 leaves slightly worn, but generally in good condition. A rare pocket atlas from the War of the Spanish Succession.

        LA PRIMA (-QUARTA) PARTE DELLE NOVELLE.

      per S. Harding. In-8 (mm. 236x183), 4 parti in 3 voll., p. vitellino coevo, dorso a cordoni (rifatto) con tit. oro su tasselli, tagli marmorizzati. L'opera, ornata da 4 frontespizi con vignetta inc. in rame e da pregevoli grandi iniziali figurate inc. su legno all'inizio di ogni novella, è così composta: - Parte I: 368 cc.num. E' una raccolta di 59 novelle introdotta da una dedica di Vincenzo Busdrago ad Alberigo Cibo Malaspina Marchese di Massa (il Busdrago aveva stampato a Lucca nel 1554 la prima edizione delle Novelle e questa del 1740 ne è una copia), cui fa seguito la lettera ai lettori del Bandello. - Parte II: 390 cc.num., 1 c.nn. con registro e data (Lucca, Busdrago, 1554 e di nuovo Londra, Harding, 1740), dedica di Busdrago a Luca Grilli e lettera di Bandello ai lettori; seguono le 59 novelle. - Parte III: 231 cc.num., dedica di Busdrago a Scipion Serdini, lettera di Bandello ai lettori; seguono 68 novelle - Parte IV: 4 cc.nn., 132 cc.num., 1 c.nn.

Pap. rares et recherchés". "Matteo Bandello (1485-1561), dominicano, condusse una vita piuttosto mondana e cortigiana che religiosa. La sua opera principale è costituita dalle sue 214 "Novelle" dove con una tecnica estremamente raffinata si narrano casi e vicende tolte in prestito dalla novellistica italiana e straniera, antica e contemporanea, ma presentate come originali e attuali mercè una lettera dedicatoria che precede le singole novelle e mercè vari accorgimenti narrativi". Così Diz. Autori Bompiani,I, p. 168. Nel ns. esempl. qualche lieve alone al marg. super.; 4 cc. leggerm. brunite nella terza parte, altrim. fresco e ben conservato. E' uno dei pochi esemplari su carta grande distinta, e ampi margini.

        Zamor oder der Mann aus dem Monde kein bloßer Roman. Erstausg.

      486 S., 8, Marmoriertes Halbleinen mit Rückentext Bloch 2/281 Wolfstieg 41510 Kloß 3961 Taute, Bundesromane 56: "Diese größtentheils aus Bahrdts Feder stammende Satire sollte die mit dem gröbsten Fanatismus und finsterem Katholizismus verhunzte deutsche Maurerei geisseln". - Carl Friedrich Bahrdt (1740-1792), radikaler evang. Aufklärungstheologe u. Schriftsteller. 1766 ordentlicher Professor der biblischen Philologie in Leipzig. 1768 musste er wegen Affären mit Prostituierten sein Amt niederlegen. Auf Betreiben von Christian Adolph Klotz erhielt er 1769 eine Professur für biblische Altertümer in Erfurt. Ungeachtet seiner Liebschaften heiratete er in Erfurt Johanna Elisabetha Volland, die Witwe des Fürstlich Sächsischen Weimar- u. Eisenacher Regierungssekretärs Christian Wilhelm Kühn. Allerdings erregte er durch seine Lehren bald wieder großen Anstoß, so dass er 1771, vermittelt durch Johann Salomo Semler, einem Ruf als Prediger u. Professor nach Gießen folgte. 1775 verlor er zum dritten Mal sein Amt, wieder auf Grund seines anstößigen Lebenswandels. 1777 trat er der Freimaurerei in England bei. Zunächst landesflüchtig, erhielt er 1779 durch Vermittlung des preußischen Ministers Karl Abraham von Zedlitz die Erlaubnis, in Halle zu leben, wo er als Schriftsteller tätig war u. allen Bestrebungen des Senats u. der orthodoxen Theologen zum Trotz in der philosophischen Fakultät Vorlesungen als Privatdozent hielt, an denen bis zu 900 Hörer teilnahmen. Nachdem er seine Frau verstoßen hatte, lebte er mit seiner Dienstmagd zusammen u. betrieb mit ihr in einem bei Halle gekauften Weinberg eine Gastwirtschaft, von der behauptet wurde es sei ein Freudenhaus. 1783 gründete er, mit Wissen Adam Weishaupts, die quasi-illuminatische Geheimgesellschaft "Deutsche Union der XXII", die 1788 durch eine Kampfschrift von Johann Joachim Christoph Bode aufgedeckt wurde. 1789 geriet Bahrdt als Verfasser des Lustspiels "Das Religionsedikt" erneut in Bedrängnis. Die Satire hatte sich gegen die restaurative Wende in der preußischen Kirchen- u. Kulturpolitik gewandt u. den preußischen König verspottet. Nach fast 8monatiger Untersuchungshaft wurde der äußerst umstrittene Theologe zu einjährigem Festungsarrest in Magdeburg verurteilt. Dort schrieb er seine Autobiographie "Geschichte seines Lebens". Er verstarb 1792 auf seinem Weinberg in Nietleben. - Barhdt schrieb über sich selbst: "Ich bin ein interessanter Mensch, bin berühmt in ganz Deutschland, habe Aufsehen erregt von der Düna bis zum Ursprung des Rheins und von der Weichsel bis an die Maas." (Kommentar, in: Pott, Briefe, Bd.I, Vorrede, S.V/VI. Siehe auch: Th. Hoeren: Präjakobiner in Deutschland Carl Friedrich Bahrdt) - Etwas bestossen u. berieben Aussengelenke leicht angerissen leicht schief gelesen Vorsatz mit Besitzervermerk von 1944 Schnitt u. einige Blatt etwas fleckig wenige Blatt mit "Eselsohr", sonst gut.

L'érudition de De Thou y est immense ; il a lu à peu près tous les historiens français et italiens, et il a recueilli beaucoup d'informations de première main. Il lui arrive cependant de commettre des erreurs de fait. Son impartialité est célèbre. On peut même dire qu'à force de vouloir tenir la balance égale entre les deux partis, De Thou l'a fait parfois pencher en faveur des huguenots, ou tout au moins des politiques. Il exprime les idées des royalistes parlementaires. C'est pourquoi son histoire fut, en 1609, mise à l'index. Afin de se justifier, il publia, la même année, ses Mémoires (1533-1601), rédigés par lui ou par Rigaut." (Hauser).

        Celeberrima ac Spatiosissima Thuringiae Metropolis Erfurtum./ Erfurt Die Hoch Berühmt und Grösseste Haupt Stadt Thüringens

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1740 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 49,5 x 57; - description: Gorgeous genaral view and city map of Erfurt. On the right and left side of the city view an figurative allegorical depiction of the river Gera and agriculture of the area.; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        An enquiry into the melancholy circumstances of Great Britain: more particularly in regard to the oeconomy of private families and persons, gentlemen, clergy, farmers, merchants, tradesmen, mechanicks, &c. With observations on the new methods of living and diversions in both city and country, with some remedies to prevent the ruin of private families; and remarks upon our trade in general, and especially of such commodities as are imported for luxury, or injurious to our manufactures. Also some hints to prevent the growing poverty of these nations.

      London: printed for W. Bickerton. n.d. ? 1740 - 8vo., (8) + 47 + (1)pp., including the half-title, recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A very good copy. First and only edition. An interesting 'enquiry' into trade, commerce and economic and social conditions among people in all walks of life. the essayist talks up buying British, comments on the hardship of some 'gentlemen of estates', smugglers 'their wickedness and their encouragers', extravagances in furniture and 'large retinues', the ruin of retailers about London, the 'expences and bad customs of retail traders', 'love of musick descended loo low, and occasions idleness', the danger of pawnbrokers. 'over-balance in trade', and 'His Majesty being a stranger to the poverty of his people'. He considers public and private education, and observes that 'youth intended for trade [are] not so properly educated as the Jew's children', and that if noblemen and citizens children [were] educated together', it would be 'advantageous to neither', and he makes thoughtful observations on the education of girls. 'Our female education at boarding schools teaches a false politeness, where children are too much instructed in visits, fashions, cards and assemblies, that they are strangers to all domestick oeconomy when they are settled in the world: often from thence proceeds discontents in their marriage states. . A good family education would be far more advantageous .'. Generally this is an astute view of mid-18th century domestic life. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      vari 1740-41, Genova - In 4, pp. (544) totali (presenti varie numerazioni, mentre quella generale e' manoscritta). Cartonatura rifatta. Importante raccolta di Responsa juris, Summarium Responsionis, Restrictus replicationis, facti, Responsio facti, Responsum pro veritateÂe Memoriale. In fineÂe' legata una osservazione critica relativa a due scrittureÂ'ultimamente stampate' in relazione a questa causa con riflessioni sulla differenza tra la causa in questione e quella Pallavicina agitata nel Pontificato di Clemente XI. Il matrimonio tra questi due cugini della famiglia Doria duro' per 10Âanni, al termine dei quali la Principessa intento' questa causaÂfinalizzata Âall'annullamento del matrimonio a causa dell'impotenza del Principe. Il processo che ebbe notevole risonanza e coinvolse moltissimiÂÂtra iÂmigliori medici dell'epoca (Pascoli, Tarozzi, A. M. Maggi, Clerici, Nicelli ecc.) si concluse con l'annullamento del matrimonio. Subito dopo, nel 1742, si risposo' con Lazzaro Maria Doria dal quale ebbe 2 figli. Anche il Principe, benche' in base all'esito del processo fosse risultato impotente, risposatosi anch'esso nel 1742 con Eleonora Carafa, ebbe, addirittura, 14 figli. Questo curioso processo, pieno di particolari intimi relativi ai rapporti sessuali tra i coniugi e di perizie mediche inerenti la supposta verginita' della principessa e l'impotenza del principe, descrive in modo esemplare questioni legate alla conservazione dello stato patrimoniale e genealogico di famiglie aventi allora enormi patrimoni e detentrici di grande potere.
