Item Description: Paris, Jean de Bonnot, 1971. 128 Seiten (6) Blattmit zahlreichen Abbildungen. sauberes und frisches Exemplar. Niccolò Machiavelli, eigentlich Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli, (* 3. Mai 1469 in San Casciano in Val di Pesa - + 21. Juni 1527 in Florenz) war ein italienischer Politiker, Philosoph, Geschichtsschreiber und Dichter. Sein Name wird heute vor allem mit rücksichtsloser Machtpolitik unter Ausnutzung aller (rechtmäßigen) Mittel verbunden. Der später geprägte Begriff Machiavellismus wird daher oft als Schimpfwort für ein politisches Verhalten gebraucht, das raffiniert, aber ohne jeglichen Einfluss von Moral und Sittlichkeit die eigene Macht und das eigene Wohl steigern will. Vor allem aufgrund seines Werks Il Principe („Der Fürst") gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Staatsphilosophen der Neuzeit. Sein politisches Hauptwerk Discorsi ist darüber in den Hintergrund getreten (Wikipedia) Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 758 8°, gebundene Ausgabe, illustrierter, blindgeprägter Ledereinband mit goldgeprägtem Rücken, Vollrotschnitt und Lesebändchen, Bookseller Inventory # 15052

Item Description: Amsterdam, Apud Janssonio - Waesbergios, 1699., 1699. Pet. in-8. Front. 9ff. 162pp. Parchemin de l'époque, titre manuscrit au dos. Edition Originale de la traduction latine du "Prince" de Machiavel, donnée avec des commentaires par le philosophe hollandais Gaspar Langenhert (né vers 1661). Langenhert avait connu la célébrité dans les milieux intellectuels et érudits de Paris, où il était arrivé vers 1697. Opposé à l'idéalisme de Berkeley il défendait l'idée qu'il n'y a d'autre réalité que celle perçue par l'individu. "Ce système sous le nom d'Egoïsme a été soutenu de nos jours et même à Paris, par un Sophiste Hollandais nommé Langenhert" (Lefèvre de Beauvray, cité par S. Charles). J.F. Adry (in : Oeuvres complètes de Malebranche) cite Langenhert en ces termes: "Gaspard Langenhert sophiste hollandois qui vint à Paris en 1700 répandre le système bizarre des "égomets" ou égoïstes dont il étoit le chef". Langenhert publia un ouvrage sur son système philosophique intitulé "Philosophus Novus. Dialogus primus [-quartus]" (Paris, 1701-1702). Le personnage de Caspar Langenhert et son cercle d'adeptes a inspiré un roman paru en 1994 ("La Secte des Egoîstes" par Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt). Frontispice allégorique gravé. Très bon exemplaire. Sur C. Langenhert cf. S. Charles, "Berkeley au siècle des lumières: immatérialisme et scepticisme au XVIIIs." (2003). Bookseller Inventory # 38382

Item Description: printed by Henry C. Southwick, Albany, 1815. Full Leather. Book Condition: Very Good +. Tall 8vo: 349,[1]pp, with 7 folding plans (one two-sided) in the main work of armies arrayed in varying battle formations and 10 woodcuts in the text of the final work illustrating aspects of torpedo warfare. Included in the pagination, with separate title page, is "Some anecdotes, relating to the life and writings of Nicolas Machiavel, collected from various authors" (pp. 287-322). Contemporary full sheep, spine in six compartments divided by double gilt rules, red morocco lettering piece gilt. A Very Good or better copy, binding secure and tight (boards pocked with one or two miniscule losses), pages toned but clean and supple, plans correctly folded and completely intact. Provenance: M. S. Hayes, in elegant contemporary script to first blank. Small ink stamp of Reuben Hayes to first and second blanks and edge of title page. Shaw & Shoemaker 35164. Translation of L'arte della guerra (first published 1521) and the first American edition of any work by Machiavelli. Essentially a series of seven Socratic dialogues between Cosimo Rucellai and Lord Fabrizio Colonna (probably Machiavelli himself), in which Fabrizio, who dominates the discussions, advocates adapting the form of the Roman Legion to the defense of Renaissance Florence and details how such an army should be raised, trained, organized, and deployed. The anonymous essay on torpedo warfare that fills the final 27 pages is introduced as follows: "The Author of the following Hints, has thought proper to take this method of giving private circulation to a description of some instruments of destruction . . ." Robert Fulton is referred to by name several times in the text and may, in fact, have been the author. British naval interference with American commerce had led Fulton to publish a work on torpedo warfare in 1810 (Sabin 26199), apparently before any other writer on the subject. But see the discussion in Alex Roland's Underwater Warfare in the Age of Sail (Bloomington, Indiana, 1978), pp. 120-21, which argues that the Author was, in fact, not Fulton but an annonymous gentleman whose "ideas revealed a thorough and acknowledged debt to Fulton" with a "sprinkling of original schemes as well. Some were merely fanciful, like a horse-propelled boat and a remotely controlled exploding ship. Others, such as a magnetic mine and a spar topedo, had the germ of important innoivations. . . . When the gentleman advanced the entriely practical idea of a chemical fuse, he confessed that he didn't know how it worked but had read it 'in old books' [by Fulton?] and heard it asserted.".

Item Description: London: Starkey, Harper, Amery (1680), 1680. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Written originally in Italian, and from thence newly & faithfully translated into English. The highly sought-after, incredibly scarce literary collectible by the father of modern political thought. Folio. Eleven works in one. Complete with general title and separate title for each work. Woodcut chapter initials and headpieces. This is the rare 1680 First Edition in English of the works of the genius Machiavelli including his two most famous works, The Prince and The Art of War. His writings forever changed how we look at politics and governance. It has become a true injustice that his name now retains such a malevolent association. Machiavelli (1469-1527) was a true Renaissance Man: a political philosopher, musician, playwright and poet. His most famous work, The Prince, espouses the earliest known realistic approach to maintaining rule (known today as realpolitik). Although he was maligned for proposing despotic rule, this interpretation of his work is inaccurate; what he stated is that evil actions are to be used only very sparingly, if at all. This stands in contrast to his other work, Discourses Upon the First Decade of Titus Livius, which strongly supported rule by a republic, including an entire system of checks & balances. Indeed, he felt that a republic was a far superior form of government than a principality. Regarding The Prince, it states in Printing and the Mind of Man [63, Wing M129]: “Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind — it should be remembered that a parallel work to The Prince was his historical essay on the first ten books of Livy. Politics was a science to be entirely divorced from ethics, and nothing must stand in the way of its machinery. Many of the remedies he proposed for the rescue of Italy were eventually applied. His concept of the qualities demanded from a ruler and the absolute need of a national militia came to fruition in the monarchies of the seventeenth century and their national armies. What Machiavelli forgot is that man is not only a political animal, and that any attempt to govern without reconciling the other sides of his nature is bound to fail. Nevertheless, he wrote as a patriot and a political scientist, and he better deserves to be remembered as such rather than as the Borgia-like figure which his name now connotes.” This beautiful copy is bound to style in full dark oasis morocco leather, double rule with period leaf decoration to boards, raised bands to spine with date gilt and red leather title label: a stately, tasteful, and beautiful presentation. This is a rare and highly important literary collectible. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-17545203958
