        Istoria del Concilio di Trento Scritta

      - Faenza - Nella Stamperia di Gioseffantonio Archi, 1792 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete collection of 'Istoria del Concilio di Trento Scritta' or 'The History of the Council of Trent' by Padre Sforza Pallavicino. Pietro Sforza Pallavicino (or Pallavicini) (1607, Rome - June 5, 1667, Rome), was an Italian cardinal and historian. Having taken holy orders in 1630, and joined the Society of Jesus in 1638, he successively taught philosophy and theology in the Collegium Romanum. These texts follow the history of the Council of Trent, a highly significant 16th-century Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church. It is considered to be one of the Church's most important councils. It convened in Trent (then capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Trent of the Holy Roman Empire, in Italy) between December 13, 1545, and December 4, 1563 in twenty-five sessions for three periods. The council issued condemnations on what it defined as Protestant heresies and defined Church teachings in the areas of Scripture and Tradition, Original Sin, Justification, Sacraments, the Eucharist in Holy Mass and the veneration of saints. It issued numerous reform decrees. By specifying Catholic doctrine on salvation, the sacraments, and the Biblical canon, the Council was answering Protestant disputes. The Council of Trent, delayed and interrupted several times because of political or religious disagreements, was a major reform council and the most impressive embodiment of the ideals of the Counter-Reformation. It would be over 300 years until the next Ecumenical Council. When announcing Vatican II, Pope John XXIII stated that the precepts of the Council of Trent continue to the modern day, a position that was reaffirmed by Pope Paul VI. Includes a bookplate from the monastic library of St Augustine's Abbey in Ramsgate. In Italian. Condition: In half vellum bindings with marbled boards. Externally, sound with slight rubbing and marks and rubbing to the boards. A dent has been left to the board of Volume IV.

        Plan of the City of Washington

      Philadelphia: Thackara & Vallance, 1792 [but later impression printed on 19th century wove paper]. Engraved map by Thackara & Vallance. 21 3/4 x 29 inches. A fine copy of the first of "official" plan of Washington, D.C. First published in November 1792, this plan is the fifth recorded engraving of the L'Enfant/Ellicott city plan, three of the four earlier engravings were issued in periodicals, making the present large scale work only the second separately issued engraving of the planned lay-out of Washington. The first appearance of the plan (also engraved by Thackara & Vallance) was in March 1792, when it was produced to illustrate an article "Description of the City of Washington, in the territory of Columbia, ceded by the States of Virginia and Maryland to the United States, by them established as the Seat of their Government after the year 1800" which was included in the March issue (pp.155-156) of the periodical The Universal Asylum and Columbian Magazine (Philadelphia: William Young, March 1792). The first folio separately issued plan was engraved by Samuel Hill: it does not include the soundings in the Potomac that are included in the present map. The national capital city, as depicted in the present plan, is laid out according to a plan originally proposed by Pierre Charles L'Enfant (1754-1825) and modified by Andrew Ellicott (1754-1820). L'Enfant "was born in Paris where he trained to be an architect. He came to America in 1777, and served George Washington as an engineer during the Revolutionary War. In 1791 President Washington asked L'Enfant to design the new capitol city in the District of Columbia. L'Enfant designed a city similar in layout to the then French capitol city of Versailles ... The Commissioners of the City of Washington wanted to have a printed copy of the plan when they began to sell building lots. L'Enfant irritated them by working slowly and releasing only sketchy plans . On instruction from President Washington, Thomas Jefferson on February 27, 1792 wrote a letter to L'Enfant dismissing him as city planner." (Washington Map Society, online). Ellicott " trained to be a mathematician and surveyor. He conducted several large surveys with David Rittenhouse, the Philadelphia astronomer, mathematician, and clockmaker. President Washington in 1791 asked Ellicott to survey the bounds of the District of Columbia. The following year Washington asked him to complete L'Enfant's plan for the city. Ellicott made some changes to L'Enfant's plan. He changed the alignment of Massachusetts Avenue, eliminated five short radial avenues, added two short radial avenues southeast and southwest of the Capitol, and named the city streets... A few months later Ellicott, like L'Enfant, found himself at odds with the Commissioners and resigned from the project." "The authority to establish a federal capital was provided in Article One, Section 8, of the United States Constitution, which permits a 'District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States'. James Madison explained the need for a federal district on January 23, 1788 in the Federalist No. 43, arguing that the national capital needed to be distinct from the states, in order to provide for its own maintenance and safety ...The Constitution, however, does not specify a location for the new capital. In what later became known as the Compromise of 1790, Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson came to an agreement that the federal government would assume war debt carried by the states, on the condition that the new national capital would be located in the South. On July 16, 1790, the Residence Act provided for a new permanent capital to be located on the Potomac River, the exact area to be selected by President Washington... Both Maryland and Virginia ceded portions of their territory to form the new capital. A new 'federal city' was constructed on the north bank of the Potomac ... On September 9, 1791, the federal city was named in honor of George Washington and the district was named the Territory of Columbia... Congress held its first session in Washington on November 17, 1800." (Wikipedia) James Thackara (1767-1848) "was curator for the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1816 to 1828, and he is listed as an engraver in the Philadelphia City Directories from 1791 to 1833. His partnership with John Vallance [1770-1823] is listed in the 1794 City Directory. He and his son William formed the firm of Thackara and Son in 1832. Thackara was elected Commissioner of the District of Southwark Philadelphia in 1797, and served as clerk of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from 1807 to 1810". Burr The Federal City Depicted pp.69-70; Evans 24296; Stauffer II, 3153; Streeter Americana-Beginnings pp.35-36; Wheat & Brun 531; Reps, Washington on View p. 38

        CONSTITUTIONS DES TREIZE ETATS-UNIS DE L'AMÉRIQUE. Nouvelle edition

      Paris. 1792.. Two volumes. [4],324; 317pp. Original blue-grey wrappers. Remarkably fresh, beautiful copy in original state. Very fine, untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth box. The first French edition of the 1787 Federal Constitution, printed with the second French edition of the constitutions of the thirteen states. The original French edition of the state constitutions was inspired by Franklin and appeared in 1783. Franklin was then ambassador to the French Court and had just completed negotiations with Great Britain for the independence of the United States. The work was translated by the Duc de la Rochefoucauld, at Franklin's suggestion, and includes over fifty footnote annotations explicating the text. This edition, publishing the Federal Constitution for the first time, also includes the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the treaties between the United States and France, the Low Countries, and Sweden. This 1792 edition in two volumes is significant for including the text of the Federal Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights (using the twelve amendments proposed to the First Congress, only ten of which were passed). The date of this edition of the American constitutions is significant, coming in the midst of the French Revolution, and at a point when the French revolutionaries were drafting their own constitution. This edition was probably created to aid in that project. HOWES C716. SABIN 16120.

Si tratta della terza edizione di questa vasta opera apparsa in originale nel 1714-19 e che è considerara come standard per ogni studio storico sugli ordini religiosi. Accanto alla precisa raffigurazione delle divise che distinguono i vari ordini, troviamo un ampio apparato testuale che offre una notevole quantità di notizie storiche sugli stessi. Il frontespizio annuncia 812 tavole, ma la numerazione delle tavole segue l'ordine e il presente esemplare ricalca esattamente il numero delle tavole dell'edizione originale (con l'aggiunta di una tavola non numerata al terzo volume).

        Delle historie di spoleti sopplimento di quelle del regno d'italia nella parte, che tocca al ducato spoletino, a' principi di esso, and alla citta' che ne fu' capo. di bernardino de' conti campello. tomo primo.

      Cm 21x15. In pergamena coeva, titolo al dorso. Esemplare con nota di possesso di Fran[cis]cus Passavinus all'occhiello. Unica parte pubblicata, secondo il Ranghiasci Bibliografia storica delle città, e luoghi dello Stato Pontificio, Roma 1792, p. 258, il manoscritto del II tomo era inedito presso il Conte Paolo di Campello. Bernardino Campello nacque a Spoleto il 28 marzo 1594, terzo di dieci figli del conte Solone e di Rotilia Capecio. Si laureò a Perugia il 13 maggio 1615 e dal 1620 fu nomiato tra i Priori di Spoleto, poi nel 1623 divenne auditore della Congregazione dei vescovi e regolari a Roma; l'elezione al soglio pontificio Maffeo Barberini con il nome di Urbano VIII, che lo aveva conosciuto ed apprezzato mentre era vescovo di Spoleto, lo portò ad avere compiti politici e nel 1624 divenne auditore di Mons. Lorenzo Capeggi, nunzio apostolico presso la corte sabauda di Torino e poi lo seguì a quella di Madrid. A questo periodo si deve la Relazione di una Nunziatura in Savoia (1624-1627) scritta quale uditore per il Nunzio Apostolico edita nel 1893 da F. Pagnotti nel quale sono importanti notizie sulle nunziature di Torino e Madrid. Nel 1639, deposto l'abito ecclesiastico, tornò a Spoleto, dove dopo il matrimonio con Vittoria Pagani si dedicò ad un'intensa vita di studio e di ricerche. Morì a Campello 24 marzo 1676. Oltre all' Historie di Spoleti, la sua opera maggiore, fu autore di due tragedie, Albesinda e Gerusalemme cattiva, di un Edipo e di un altro poema epico, La presa del Messico, rimasto incompiuto. Ebbe corrispondenza con il Magliabechi, il Rinuccini, Francesco Redi e Johannes Kepler.

      London: [first two works] Printed for J. Ridgway; [third work] Printed for H.D. Symonds... and Thomas Clio Rickman 1792.. Three works bound in one, "Miscellaneous Articles" first edition, 33, (3 advertisement), 36, 40 pp. Some light browning and minor tears, one corner torn away without loss. 20th century boards."Miscellaneous Articles" collects 8 pieces; letters to the Marquis of Lansdowne, the Authors of the Republican, Abbé Syeyes, Lord Onslow the people of France and two to Henry Dundas as well as his "Thoughts on the Peace". "A Letter to Abbé Raynal" first appeared in 1782 and remains one of Paine's most important works, disputing an earlier account of the American revolution, and indeed the definition of "revolution" itself. The "Letter to the Addressers..." concerns the government's warning against "wicked and seditious libels" in May 1792, directed chiefly at the second part of "The Rights of Man" and follows on from his letters to Dundas and Onslow. This response was at the printers even as he fled the country in September of the same year. Gimbel pp83, 72, 74. Sabin 58222 notes similar editions of "Abbé Raynal".
