HOOFT, Pieter Corneliszoon.

Emblemata amatoria. Afbeeldinghen van minne. Emblemes d’amour.

First edition, complete with the rare accompanying collection of sonnets and songs (pp. 73–144), of one of the most important emblem books of the Dutch Golden Age and a masterpiece of Dutch literature by the prolific poet and dramatist Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft (1581–1648). All the emblems, illustrated with splendid engravings variously attributed to Simon Frisius, Pieter Servouters (see Praz) or Christoffel le Blon (see Landwehr), ‘are original in that they are not derived immediately from [Hooft’s] predecessors, but are freely inspired by the same or similar themes’ (Praz p. 124), and are accompanied by mottoes and distichs in Dutch, Latin and French.

RARE FIRST EDITION OF ALL FOUR PARTS OF ONE OF MENGER’S LIST OF SEVEN MATHEMATICAL-ECONOMIC READING RECOMMENDATIONS BUQUOY, Georg Franz August de Longueval, Freiherr von Vaux, Graf von.

Die Theorie der Nationalwirthschaft nach einem neuen Plane und nach mehrern eigenen Ansichten dargestellt …

First edition of all four parts of this very rare early work of mathematical economics. In a letter to Léon Walras of 28 June 1883, Carl Menger, after thanking Walras for sending him a copy of Théorie mathématique de la richesse sociale, encloses a select list of his own making of seven key mathematical-economic texts; this work is on that list. Die Theorie der Nationalwirthschaft, here with its three supplements, is Buquoy’s major work. Written at a time of great industrial, financial and economic change, it reflects, and benefits from, the wealth of material available to Buquoy as a non-specialist economic thinker.
