Geschichte der Hohenzollernschen Staaten Hechingen und Sigmaringen von den ältesten Zeiten bis auf unsere Tage, durchaus nach Quellen bearbeitet … I. [– VIII.] Heft.
First edition. Perched on the Zollenberg, just south of Hechingen, is the castle of Hohenzollern, which gave its name to the ruling house of Brandenburg–Prussia from 1415 to 1918, arguably the most powerful family in German history. The ancestral lands were divided in 1575 by Count Karl I among his three sons, thereby founding the three lines Hohenzollern-Hechingen, Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, and Hohenzollern-Haigerloch (this last dying out in 1634 and its territory absorbed by Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen). The present work charts the early history of the area and the men who ruled it. In 1849, the two remaining principalities were united to form the Province of Hohenzollern, at the time the smallest in Prussia.
Johan Lockes oförgripelige tankar om werldslig regerings rätta ursprung/gräntsor och ändamål.
First edition in Swedish. The first translation into Swedish of Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, this edition – of the Second treatise – was translated, following order of the Swedish Ricksdag, by Hans Harmens from Mazel’s 1691 French edition. It was only the second time that any of Locke’s work had been translated into Swedish. Significantly, the Ricksdag’s interests focussed on the part of Locke’s work which addressed the topics of natural rights and the social contract.
