Novus Orbis, seu descriptionis Indiae Occidentalis

by Arader Galleries

June 13, 2015, 1:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $12,000

Description: LAET, Johannes de (1593-1649). Leiden: Elzevir, 1633. One of the most famous contemporary descriptions of the natural history of A New World. Folio (13 2/8 x 8 6/8 inches). Half-title, engraved architectural title-page, dedication to Charles I of Britain, France and Ireland, 14 engraved double-page maps by Hessel Gerritsz (maps quite brown and repaired on verso), numerous woodcut illustrations of plants, animals and inhabitants of the New World in the text. Contemporary vellum over paste-board, the spine in six compartments with 5 raised bands, title in manuscript in the second, a little rubbed); preserved in a modern brown morocco backed slipcase and chemise. First Edition in Latin, first published as "Nieuwe Wereldt ofte Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien" in Leiden in 1625. "One of the most famous contemporary descriptions of the natural history of the New World. The work was highly praised a century later by Charlevoix, attesting to its accuracy... Winsor referred to Laet's book as the standard seventeenth-century work on New Netherland" (Streeter sale I:37). De Laet was a director of the Dutch West India Company, and so had access to the latest information, both from the company's personnel and from the archives. Although an important record - and perhaps the best seventeenth-century account - of the Americas, the real significance of the book is the suite of maps used to illustrate it, drawn by Hessel Gerritsz, official mapmaker to the Dutch West India Company and to the East India Company, chosen in preference to Willem Blaeu. Alden & Landis 633/65; Borba de Moraes p. 451; Burden 229-232; Cumming "Southeast" 34; Phillips 1149; Sabin 38557; Schwartz and Ehrenberg, p. 105; Willems 382.

Apostolic Tribunal of the Roman Sacred Rota: is the highest appellate tribunal of the Roman Catholic Church, with respect to both Latin-rite members and the eastern-rite members and is, with respect to judicial trials conducted in the Catholic Church, the highest ecclesiastical court constituted by the Holy See. The court is named Rota (wheel) because the judges, called auditors, originally met in a round room to hear cases. The Rota was established in the 13th century. It was set up to receive judgments in second and further instances from any other regional and diocesan tribunal; it was composed of auditors and chaired by the dean. Gilles de Bellemère (1337-1407), often italianized in Egidio de Bellamera, was a French Catholic bishop. Auditor of the Roman Rota at Avignon and auditor litterarum contradictarum from 1376. This work contains 755 Conclusiones spanning the entire legal universe and for the period 1374-78. Pietro Benintendi (active in the mid-sixteenth century, from Cesena), was a judge of the Rota in Bologna; just refer to this activity the 98 Conclusionesof the Sacra Rota of Bologna, written by Benintendi between 1540 and 1545. Guillaume Cassador (Gulielmus Cassiodorus, 1477-1527) was a canonist, bishop of Barcelona and Alghero and chancellor of the Sacred Council of the kingdom of Catalonia; his decisiones were the most notable for his prudence and value of the doctrine. Archdiocese of Toulouse: the decisiones taken by this Archbishop's seat (Decisiones capellae Tholosanae) were collected by Etienne Aufreri (14??-1511), a Toulouse jurist, who was the author of a famous collection of 501 quaestiones, developed after 1483 and all on the Toulouse Archbishop's seat.

[Natural Law] Wolff, Jus Naturae et Gentium, 1792

Milano, Italy

Estimated Price: €300 - €350

Description: ONE OF THE MOST EMINENT THINKERS OF NATURAL LAWWolff, Christian. Institutiones Juris Naturae et Gentium in quibus ex ipsa Hominis Natura continuo nexu Omnes obligationes et jura omnia deducuntur auctore Christiano L. B. De Wolff [...]. Venetiis, Apud Josephum Orlandelli nomine q. Francisci ex Nicolao Pezzana, 1792.8vo (180x115 mm), half calf on marbled paper in red and blue tones, gilt decorations and titles on green label at spine, edges sprayed in blue ink, pp. xii, 460. Xylographic headletters and decorations. Brief and complete compendious of the juridical theories of Christian Wolff, probably the most important German scholar lived between Leibnitz and Kant. The treatise synthetizes the rules of the civil law according to the natural law. Among the most important follower of the Natural Law theory, with Wolf we find Grotius, John Locke, Samuel Pufendorf and Kant.Christian Wolff (1679-1754) was a German jurist and philosopher, remembered for is wide scientific production both in Latin and German in many different fields, form philosophy to theology to law. The Natural law, or the law of nature (Latin: lex naturalis), is a system of law that is determined by nature, and, for this reason, is considered universal (as to say, valid for every people). Classically, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature — both social and personal — and deduce binding rules of moral behavior from nature. Natural law is often compared with the positive law of a given political community, society, or state. In legal theory, on the other hand, the interpretation of positive law requires some reference to natural law. On this understanding of natural law, natural law can be invoked to criticize judicial decisions about what the law says but not to criticize the best interpretation of the law itself. Some scholars use natural law synonymously with natural justice or natural right (Latin ius naturale), while others distinguish between natural law and natural right.Although natural law is often conflated with common law, the two are distinct in that natural law is a view that certain rights or values are inherent in or universally cognizable by virtue of human reason or human nature, while common law is the legal tradition whereby certain rights or values are legally cognizable by virtue of judicial recognition or articulation. Natural law theories have, however, exercised a profound influence on the development of English common law, full citation needed] and have featured greatly in the philosophies of Thomas Aquinas, Francisco Suárez, Richard Hooker, Thomas Hobbes, Hugo Grotius, Samuel von Pufendorf, John Locke, Francis Hutcheson, Jean Jacques Burlamaqui, and Emmerich de Vattel. Because of the intersection between natural law and natural rights, it has been cited as a component in the United States Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States, as well as in the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. Declarationism states that the founding of the United States is based on Natural law.References: IT\ICCU\MILE\008761. OCLC, 65111847.
