1797 George Macartney Embassy to CHINA Voyages British Trade Emperor Qianlong In 1793, George Macartney headed the first British diplomatic mission to China – The Macartney Embassy. This mission was established to set ports of trade between China and Britain and establish permanent relations between the two world powers. Unfortunately, the Chinese Emperor Qianlong did not see the need for trade with Britain. Details of the mission and voyage were published by Aeneas Anderson who reported on major details of the mission. This work, entitled 'A Narrative of the British Embassy to China' was a highly desirable work throughout Britain in the late 18th-century. So popular in fact that abridged versions were published. One such edition was 'An Accurate Account of Lord Macartney's Embassy to China' edited by Aeneas Anderson, a servant to Macartney on the mission. This 1797 printing of the abridged edition describes in detail aspects of Chinese culture, religion, temples, Chinese military and soldiers, reports ... Read more

1815 1ed Machiavelli ART of WAR American Rev Military Robert Fulton Torpedo "The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him." ― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th- and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work "The Prince" has infamously coined the term 'Machiavellianism' regarding politics and dishonest politicians. It has often been considered the first work of modern philosophy, mostly because it conflicts so strongly with Catholic doctrines concerning politics and ethics at the time. "The Art of War," Machiavelli's 1521 treatise on military science, was the only theoretical or historical work to be published during his lifetime. This book of 'high military' concepts discusses military discipline, civilian interactions, how to live without factions, how to define war, and how to conduct diplomacy during a ti ... Read more

1823 Martial Epigrams Roman Poetry Epigrammaton Corruption in Rome Delphini "I live in a little cell, with a window that won't even close, In which Boreas himself would not want to live." – Martial, Epigrams Martial was a 1st-century Roman poet from Spain most-known for his 'Epigrams.'

1864 1ed General McClellan Report Army of the Potomac CIVIL WAR Union MAPS "The Union, which can alone insure internal peace, and external security to each State, Must and Shall be Preserved, cost what it may in time, treasure, and blood." – George B.

He published a number of works on his involvement in the military, such as his 'Report on the Army of the Potomac'. This work is a collection of war reports from the Eastern portion of the Civil War.

1670 Theatrum Europaeum Matthaeus Merian German Illustrated Portraits MAPS WarsMatthaeus Merian was one of, if not the most important Swiss engraver from the 17th-century. He created maps and city plans in conjunction with other German geographers, and many of these illustrations would appear in 'Theatrum Europaeum' – the best 17th-century periodical on the history of German-speaking lands. This journal is filled with impressive engravings – mainly portraits and maps – and features articles and essays pertaining to a specific time period in Europe.This volume of 'Theatrum Europaeum' covers the years 1633-1638 and was written by Heinrich Oraeus.
