1696 Hebrew Republic Judaism Judaica Republican Government Semitism Cunaeus Petrus Cunaeus was an early 17th-century Dutch scholar whose 'Hebrew Republic' is considered, according to Tuck, "the most powerful statement of republican theory in the early years of the Dutch Republic." (Tuck, 169) "De Republica Hebraeorum" describes ancient Hebrew kingdoms and portrays it as the model of republican governments. This book was highly influential on the formation of the Dutch Republic, even though Cunaeus foresaw the Dutch government falling just as Rome did. Ultimately, Cunaeus sought for the book to instill tolerance toward 17th-century Jews through the publication of 'Republica.' This 1696 edition features a charming full-page frontispiece.

1822 Greek Literature Phaedrus Fables Aesop Stoic Philosophy Morality Delphini "Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden." – Phaedrus Phaedrus was a 1st-century fabulist and Roman poet known for his five books of verse fables. Many of his tales are adaptions of Aesop's famous tales, but he does include his own new stories as well. One major difference between Aesop and Phaedrus, however, is Phaedrus's treatment of the moral. Phaedrus emphasized the moral of the story much more than Aesop did. This edition is the collected works of Phaedrus from the series 'Scriptores latini in usum Delphini.'

1874 BEAUTIFUL 1ed Picturesque America Illustrated Scenery Landscapes AMERICANA 'Picturesque America' is one of the best and most thorough works on the history of America. According to Rainey,"'Picturesque America' was a conspicuous presence in the popular culture of the United States in the post-Civil War years. First published as a magazine series in Appletons' Journal, then as a subscription book, in parts, from 1872 to 1874 it reached a huge audience. Its voluminous text and over 900 pictures represented the first comprehensive celebration of the entire continental nation. By testifying to the variety, uniqueness and potential wealth of the American landscape and the advanced civilization of its cities, 'Picturesque America' laid the foundation for a resurgence of nationalism rooted in the homeland itself, rather than in institutions of democracy as would have been the case earlier in the century."Edited by William Cullen Bryant, 'Picturesque America' was proudly displayed by Appleton and Co., at their bo ...

1800 TRUE 1st ed Pigafetta on MAGELLAN Italian Voyages Exploration Amoretti Map First edition of the first complete account of Magellan! Antonio Pigfetta was a 16th-century Italian explorer who famously accompanied Ferdinand Magellan on his expedition to the Spice Islands. During this voyage, Pigfetta kept a detailed journal of the events as well as first-hand accounts of the Cebuano language. This journal is the primary source for much of what is known today about Magellan and the first circumnavigation of the world. Curiously though, this journal was written in a combination of broken Venetian, Spanish, and Italian was first translated into Italian in Milan in 1800 by Carlo Amoretti. This 1800 first edition is extremely valuable and desirable – a rare account of perhaps the most important expedition of the 16th-century. Prior to this edition, editors collected translations from various places and pieced together insufficient and "unsatisfactory" editions, according to Ebert. This work includes charming ...
