1749 Spirit of the Laws Montesquieu Political Government USA Democracy LAW 2v

“Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.” ― Montesquieu, The Spirit of the Laws Charles-Louis de Montesquieu’s ‘Spirit of the Laws’ is one of the most famous treaties ever written, especially on political theory. This work was so influential that world leaders such as Catherine the Great and the United States founding fathers applied the methods taught in this book to their culture’s future. This famed work found itself on the infamous ‘Prohibited Book Index’ in 1751 even though it was well-respected and well-read around the world. Montesquieu lists a few major points in his work; points that have resonated with government for centuries. These include: Separation of power Liberty and democracy are one in the same The point of civil and criminal law is to ensure personal security Qualities and flaws of governmental types This rare two-volume French edition was published in 1749 by Durand in Paris – the imprint Barrillot in Geneva on the title page is false.

1799 Mungo Park Travels in AFRICA Mandingo Slaves Cannibalism Voyages Hunts

Mungo Park was an 18th-century Scottish explorer who was well-known for his voyages in West Africa and the Niger River Basin. The reports and accounts of this voyage are still quite popular today amongst game hunters and navigation enthusiasts. The origin of this voyage came when Park sought to discover the source of the Niger River, a goal that Daniel Houghton had originally set out to find. On his journey, Park encountered a group of Mandinka slaves – an encounter that inspired the work ‘Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa’. These slaves assumed Park and his men were cannibals and, like slave traders before them, were there to enslave, sell, and consume them. This book set the standard for future travels writers to follow and was important for providing Western Europeans with a view of life in Central Africa. According to the Printing of the Mind and Man, “Until the publication of Park’s [first] book in 1799 hardly anything was known of the interior of Africa, apart from the north-east region and the coastal areas. Park’s Travels had an immediate success and was translated into most European languages. It has become a classic of travel literature, and its scientific observations on the botany and meteorology of the region, and on the social and domestic life of the negroes, have remained of lasting value.” $550.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!
