        Kurzer, aber doch hinlänglicher Auszug der aller merkwürdigsten und wichtigsten, in dreyen Hauptmaterien und Abtheilungen zusammen gezogenen Stellen aus den Schriften des in Ternario Sancto hocherleuchtet gewesenen, und nun in der Glorie seyenden Jacob Böhms. Wovon die Erste Abtheilung den verkündigten Untergang Babels, die grosse Bekehrung der Juden und Heiden, und das darauf folgende herrliche Reich Jesu Christi; die Zweyte Abtheilung aber, die rechte, einem jeden Menschen nöthige, Wiedergeburt; und die Dritte und lezte Abtheilung die Bereitung des Steins der Weisen in sich enthält. [1. Aufl.]

      Frankfurt u. Leipzig, o.V., 1762. - 15 Bll., S. [31]-288 [so kmpl.], Kl.-8°, Pappband d. Zt. mit Rückenschild Ackermann III/109. - Der ungenannte Kompilator der vorliegenden Ausgabe soll der hessisch-darmstädtische Oberlandkommissar Sigmund Heinrich Güldenfalk gewesen sein, was sich allerdings nicht belegen lässt. Der Anhang enthält ein "Philosophisches Sendschreiben, Vom rechten und wahren Steine der Weisheit: Worinnen der ganze Proceß des philosophischen Werks aufrichtig angewiesen wird." Die Basis des von Hermetikern sehr geschätzte Werk erschien 1747 (vgl. Brüning 4519) als Nachdruck der "Idea Chemiae" von 1690. Dazu schreibt Hermann Fictuld im "Chymisch-Philosophischen Probier-Stein" bei seinen Kommentaren zur alchemistischen Literatur unter Nr.30: "Der Author davon ist bekannt, er hat als ein ehrlicher, kluger und weiser Mann gehandelt, und hat der Ordnung nach des sel. Mannes Schriften extrahirt, und in gewisse Classen getheilet, so daß, was alldorten weitläufig zertheilet ist, allhier in die Nähe gebracht worden." - Jakob Böhme (auch Jacob, 1575-1624) griff auf seinen Gesellenwanderungen mystische u. alchimistische Gedanken auf, las die Schriften von Kaspar Schwenckfeld u. wurde bei seinen Schriften auch von paracelsischen Ideen beeinflusst. - Einband leicht bestossen u. berieben; Rücken mit Teil einer Standortnr.; Vorsatz mit kl. Klebemarke; Titel mit kl. Stempel, sonst ein gutes Expl. - Sehr selten.

        The Matrons. Six short histories.

      Dublin: printed by Dillon Chamberlaine, in Smock Alley. [1762] - vii, [7], 15-148pp, engr. frontispiece. 12mo. Small old stain to lower edge of three leaves. Full contemporary calf, raised band, red morocco label. Armorial bookplate of the Marquess of Headfort. ESTC N504099 recording one copy only at Dublin City Libraries. The first London edition was also published in 1762. Edited, and in part translated by Thomas Percy, the dedication to The Matrons reassures them to not be 'alarmed at this address; no rude commonplace invective is here intended: and though the following stories may be thought to bear somewhat hard upon your sex, a moment's reflection will convince you that this miscellany is in effect a real panegyric; since to compile it (short as it is) we have been obliged to ransack the mouldy volumes of antiquity, and to take a voyage as far as China' It forms a collection of stories about widows who were false to their vows of faith to their dead husbands. The first two stories, The Ephesian Matron from Petronius, and the Chinese Matron from P.du Halde, are noted as 'new translations', and others are taken from G. Etherege, Benjamin Victor, and an unidentified Turkish manuscript. [Attributes: First Edition]

Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor.

The firm remained in being until the next century and had a wide influence on map publishing in Germany. Apart from the atlases the firm published a very large number of individual maps. The Homanns produced a Neuer Atlas in 1714, a Grosser Atlas in 1737, and an Atlas Maior with about 300 maps in 1780. They also issued a special Atlas of Germany with full sized plans of principal cities, school atlases and an Atlas of Silesia in 1750 with 20 maps. Condition: Good, given age.

        [halftitle: DU CONTRACT SOCIAL;] PRINCIPES DU DROIT POLITIQUE

      Amsterdam: Marc Michel Rey, 1762. (4), VIII, 323, (1) pp. 8to (192*126 mm). []2 *4 A-V8 X2. 1st edition, 3rd and final issue. Recent brown quartercalf with brown marbled boards and gilt title on spine. New plain endpapers. Edges sprinkled blue (not recent). A fresh, crisp and unpressed copy. Our copy of the Contract Social conforms to Dufour's Type B issue, with the title-page having the vignette of Liberty seated and the contentious section on marriage in the second corrected state. The publishing history of the Contract Social is a complicated one. When the press was set up and the first copies already printed, Rousseau received a proof of the title-page which he disliked. He had also decided to tone down his note on marriage where he criticised the monopoly of the Catholic clergy. He therefore instructed his publisher, Rey, to change the title-page and the final section. Printing and the Mind of Man 207; Dufour 133; Tchemerzine V 543. See also Leigh, Unsolved Problems in the Bibliography of J.-J. Rousseau, Cambridge, 1990, who refines the printing history to 3 issues: (1) original title and note on marriage, (2) same note omitted and (3) new title and note omitted. 3 copies in NCC (Leiden missing halftitle (autopsy), Utrecht and UVA)..

Leveau, Ourvrier, et. al. One plate is apparently from a different copy. 12mo (in 8s). 185 mm. Attractive contemporary French red morocco gilt bindings, with only very slight defects. First Edition. The world famous tales and fables of Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695), neatly printed in verse, are joined by a 'Dissertation sur la Joconde' by Nicolas Boileau Despreaux (1636-1711); and the best work of the great illustrators & engravers Charles Eisen (1720-1778) and Pierre-Philippe Choffard (1730-1809). Justly considered one of the greatest examples of French rococo illustration. The Fermiers Generaux, an entrepreneurial financial association responsible for gathering and banking certain kinds of taxes, commissioned this edition of La Fontaine's zesty tales. Determined that the book should be the best of its kind, they allowed their agent, the Chevalier d'Agincourt, unlimited resources. It is still provocative to consider that patronage of the arts by this new plutocracy produced the greatest monument and triumph of this renowned age of illustration.

        Principes du Droit Politique [Du Contract Social]

      Amsterdam: Michel Rey 1762 - Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, tan leather label. A fine, fresh, wide-margined copy in a very well-preserved binding. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION, type B, the definitive authorized version. Observing in his opening words that “man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains,” Rousseau offered this work as a yardstick with which to judge existing governments. He argued that the central problem is to “find a form of association which can defend and protect with all the power of the community the person and possessions of each associate, and by which each person unites himself with all, but only obeys himself and thereby remains as free as before.” “The Contrat Social remains Rousseau’s greatest work . . . his fundamental thesis that government depends absolutely on the mandate of the people, and his genuine creative insight into a number of political and economic problems, give his work an indisputable cogency. It had the most profound influence on the political thinking of the generation following its publication . . .” (Printing and the Mind of Man 207). Before publication Rousseau expressed dissatisfaction with the title-page and objected to its vignette in particular. The publisher offered an alternative title-page with a large vignette and with the phrase “Du Contract [sic] Social” moved to the half-title. At the same time, Rousseau suppressed a concluding passage on civil marriage. The requested changes were made, and thus only a handful of copies survive with the type A title-page. David Hume wrote to Rousseau on the publication of this work, “Of all the men of letters in Europe, since the death of Montesquieu, you are the person whom I most revere, both for the force of your genius and the greatness of your mind.” The book remains the bible of popular sovereignty, egalitarian government and, above all, the preservation of individual liberty within civil society. The Contrat Social was an immediate sensation, and both the original publisher and several pirates brought out additional printings in 1762. Fine copies of the first edition in contemporary bindings are now scarce. Printing and the Mind of Man 207. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Wien, Artaria, 1762 (recte um 1790). - Grenzkolorierte Kupferstichkarte von Anton Weinkopf in 4 Blättern (jeweils ca. 49 cm x 54 cm). Die wichtigste Vorarbeit zum Atlas Tyrolensis des Peter Anich und Blasius Hueber. - Dörflinger S. 61 (Spergs) und 309 (Artaria). - Joseph von Spergs (auch Sperges), der an den langwierigen Verhandlungen zur Festlegung des umstrittenen Grenze zwischen Tirol und der Republik Venedig beteiligt war arbeitete in den 1750er Jahren an einer Karte des südlichen Tirol, die auf eigenen Vermessungen beruhte. Da Spergs überraschend nach Wien versetzt wurde, beauftragte er auf Empfehlung von Weinhart Anich, die ausstehenden Vermessungen vorzunehmen und abzuschließen. Die Gebiet von Klausen über Bozen bis Meran sowie das Sarntal wurden daraufhin 1759 von Anich vermessen. Die Karte von Spergs, die das Fürstentum Trient bzw. die Grafschaft Tirol südlich der Linie Vinschgau und Grödental im Maßstab ca. 1 : 121.000 darstellte, wurde 1762 als Kupferstich publiziert. Daraufhin wurden Anich in den 1760er Jahren vom Staat die finanziellen Mittel bewilligt, das nördliche Tirol zu vermessen und darüber eine Karte zu anzufertigen. Es sollte ein Pendant zur in Ausarbeitung befindlichen Spergschen Karte des südlichen Tirols geschaffen werden. - Die Kupferplatten der Spergs-Karte wurden 1759 von Anton Weinkopf in Wien angefertigt und erstmals im Jahre 1762 in Innsbruck verlegt. Gegen 1790 gelangten die Kupferplatten in Besitz der Fa. Artaria in Wien. Diese druckte einige wenige Exemplare dieser Karte unverändert mit dem Zusatz "Vienna apud Artaria & Soc" (hier vorliegend). Etwas später (um 1805) verlegte Artaria die Karte mit französischem Titel "Le Tyrol Meridional" wiederum nur in wenigen Exemplaren und ohne sonstige Veränderungen. - Kaum fleckig. Breitrandige und klar gedruckte Kartenblätter.

        Nic. Machiavells Regierungskunst eines Fürsten. Mit Hrn. Amelots de la Houssaye historischen und politischen Anmerkungen, und dem Leben des Machiavells (u. 2 Anhängen).

      Hannover & Leipzig. Schmidt.1762. 3 Teile in 1 Bd. 17,5 x 11 cm. 1 Bl., 397 S., XXIII, 1 Bl. Zwischentit.; 1 Bl., 136 S. Halbleinen des 19. Jahrhunderts mit marm. Buchschnitt.

Papierverlust, Titelblatt fleckig, stellenweise etw. stockfleckig. Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli (* 3. Mai 1469 in Florenz, Republik Florenz; † 21. Juni 1527 ebenda) war ein florentinischer Philosoph, Politiker, Diplomat, Chronist, Schriftsteller und Dichter. Vor allem aufgrund seines Werkes Il Principe (Der Fürst) gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Staatsphilosophen der Neuzeit. Machiavelli ging es hier – im Ansatz neutral – darum, Macht analytisch zu untersuchen, anstatt normativ vorzugehen und die Differenz zwischen dem, was sein soll, und dem, was ist, festzustellen. Er orientierte sich in seiner Analyse an dem, was er für empirisch feststellbar. Sein politisch-philosophisches Werk Discorsi ist darüber in den Hintergrund getreten. Der später geprägte Begriff Machiavellismus wird oft als abwertende Beschreibung eines Verhaltens gebraucht, das zwar raffiniert ist, aber ohne ethische Einflüsse von Moral und Sittlichkeit die eigene Macht und das eigene Wohl als Ziel sieht. Sein Name wird daher heute häufig mit rücksichtsloser Machtpolitik unter Ausnutzung aller Mittel verbunden. Niccolò Machiavelli entstammte einer angesehenen, jedoch verarmten Familie. Er wuchs zusammen mit drei Geschwistern Primavera, Margherita und Totto Machiavelli bei seinen Eltern Bernardo di Niccolò Machiavelli und dessen Frau Bartolomea di Stefano Nelli im Florentiner Stadtviertel Santo Spirito südlich des Arno auf. Über seine Mutter ist nur bekannt, dass sie belesen war und kleinere Schriften verfasste. Der Vater arbeitete hauptsächlich als Anwalt, war aber in dem Beruf erfolglos und verarmte. Mit seinem geringen Gehalt unterhielt er eine kleine Bibliothek und ermöglichte seinem Sohn Niccolò eine umfassende humanistische Bildung. So lernte Machiavelli schon früh autodidaktisch die Werke antiker Klassiker kennen, unter anderen die Werke von Aristoteles, Boethius, Cicero (De officiis) und Claudius Ptolemäus. Er wurde von Privatlehrern in den Sieben Freien Künsten unterwiesen und lernte Grammatik und Latein früher als heute üblich. Sein Biograph Volker Reinhardt schreibt, dass er unter der Herrschaft der Medici eine tiefe Abneigung gegen diese mächtige Familie und deren politische Manipulationen entwickelte. Er erkannte früh das Wesen der politischen Macht als „Ringen von Interessen und sozialen Schichten“. Seine Briefe unterschrieb er mit unterschiedlichen Varianten seines Namens wie „Niccolò“, „Nicolò“, „Nicholò“, und „Machiavelli“, „Macchiavelli“, „Machiavegli“, „Macchiavegli“.; Quelle Wikipedia.; - Mit 1 Porträt v. Machiavelli. Versand D: 6,00 EUR 18. Jahrhundert; Geisteswissenschaften; Philosophie; Staatsphilosophie, Florenz; Humanisten; Italien; Machiavelli; Mann; Renaissance

Nel complesso esemplare discreto e genuino. Hugues Doneau (1527-91), celebre giureconsulto francese, fu uno dei maggiori rappresentanti della scuola culta; insegnò a Tolosa, Ginevra, Heidelberg, Leida ed Altdorf. Doneau (o Donello), schematicamente e frettolosamente accostato a Cuiacio ed agli esponenti fautori del metodo esegetico finalizzato alla storicizzazione del diritto romano, si distingue invece da questi per una forte impronta sistematica che lo colloca in un contesto di minore discontinuità rispetto al mos italicus ed alla tradizione di diritto comune.

Berti war "ein gelehrter Augustiner, welcher zu Seravezza 1696 gebohren war, sich sehr frühe in verschiedenen Städten Italiens durch Predigen hervor that, in seinem Orden die Philosophie und Theologie lehrte, und hernach nach Rom berufen ward, ein System der Theologie nach dem Geschmacke seines Ordens auszuarbeiten, worauf er Bibliothekarius di S. Spirito zu Florenz und darauf Lehrer der Kirchengeschichte zu Pisa ward" (Jöcher/Adelung I, 1774). - Papierbedingt durchgehend braunfleckig. Einband gering berieben (Hinterdeckel etwas stärker); die Rückenvergoldung oxydiert.

Als Philosophieprofessor und Universitätsrektor in Salzburg machte sich Vogl um die Modernisierung der zuvor noch ganz aristotelisch-scholastischen Lehrpläne verdient und führte die neuere Philosophie, die Experimentalphysik und die Mathematik als Grundlagen ein. Als Abt "beförderte er [die ernsten Studien] an den Schulen seines in der Geschichte der Wissenschaften so hervorragenden Stiftes, vermehrte und erweiterte die Lehrfächer, führte öffentliche Prüfungen ein und widmete insbesondere der Akademie seine Fürsorge; die Sternwarte verdankt ihm ihre kostspielige Ausstattung [.]; auch die astronomische Bibliothek bereicherte der Prälat mit den kostbarsten Werken [.], und die Klostergeschichte zählt den Prälaten [.] zu den besten Aebten von Kremsmünster" (Wurzbach LI, 167).

Contemporary mottled calf, brown morocco label, raised bands, compartments elaborately decorated in gilt with central flower tools, all edges red, marbled endpapers, title pages in red and black, woodcut historiated capitals, head- and tailpieces. Engraved frontispiece and 5 other plates. Front joint starting and with insect puncture but still holding firm, the occasional minor blemish or short closed tear but overall contents bright and fresh. A very good copy. First Jean Swart edition and fifth edition in French of Gulliver's Travels, which was first published in French in 1727, one year after the first edition in English. The text of the first two volumes is abbé Pierre François Guyot Desfontaines's abridged adaptation, the same as that of the Paris editions. Included as part of this edition are "parts of the spurious Volume 3 of the English edition - the 'Second Voyage à Brobdingnag,' 'Voyage des Sevarambes;' and the Four Letters to the Dean, each with a separate t.p. Other editions by the same publisher were issued in 1765 and 1778" (Lucius L. Hubbard, Contributions Towards a Bibliography of Gulliver's Travels, p. 165). "Goulding records 14 editions of Desfontaines's translation before 1797 and over 180 since 1813" (New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature).
