One of the most important books published on the Low Countries in the 16th century by Lodovico (or Luduvico) Guicciardini, being the first detailed description of the principalities and cities of the region which assured the author instant fame. It was the first travel guide of the Netherlands divided into sections, each devoted to a particular region illustrated by engraved plans and views and became immediately popular, with over fifty editions in the 16th and seventeeth century alone. Guicciardini shows us the graduate change concerning the (politcal) situation of the Low Countries as a result of the enduring resistance against the king of Spain. The book covers all aspects of contemporary life in each area as well, including extensive treatment of the fine arts, trade and the commercial concerns of each region. Also an important source for early Dutch history. Lodovico Guicciardini (Florence 1521 - Antwerp 1589), was an Italian businessman and author. He left Italy for Lyons in 1538 and shortly afterwards settled down in Antwerp where, together with his brother Giovan-Battista, he started dealing in cloth, goldthread and similar commodities. As one of the many Italians in Antwerp who tried to make a living, Guicciardini would have remained unknown if in 1567 he had not published this 'Description of the Whole Netherlands'.

Its slogan was "None shall starve nor freeze". The drive was originally set up under the government of Heinrich Brüning in 1931, though Hitler would later claim sole credit. It ran from 1933-1945 during the months of October through March, and was designed to provide food, clothing, coal, and other items to less fortunate Germans during the inclement months.

Clocks: Their Origin and Development 1320-1880. 2 Volumes.
. Wilsele, Belgium, 1st. edition, 2004, 1032 pages and about 950 colour illustrations. bibliography, index; .small-folio sized, immaculate new set in box and still in shrink wraps.( 25 x 33.1 cm )
¶ A completely rewritten and vastly expanded version of an earlier publication in Dutch (Vehmeyer, Antieke Uurwerken - Een familienverzameling, 1994, 624 pages ) this work is therefore vastly more accessible to most collectors. It is basically a detailed history of the mechanical clock in Europe, illustrated primarily with examples from the extraordinary collection of the author's family. The 1994 edition showed 233 clocks in detail; the 2004 edition has grown to 330 clocks so shown. Therefore, the book is also a massive collection catalogue. Each clock in the family collection is catalogued on two (or more) large (13x10 inches) pages, with about half a page of text describing maker, dial, movement and case, half a page of colour photos of details, and a large, full page colour picture of the clock facing the initial page. The clocks are arranged by country (52 from Germany, 109 from the Netherlands, 94 from England, 83 from France. ). Within each country, they are in chronological order. Part I comprises a comprehensive introduction to the origins of clockmaking, while Part II presents a comparative horological history of the leading European clockmaking countries: Germany, England, France, Italy and last but not least, the Netherlands. The book has a lot more to offer than just historical and technical facts about clocks. On the basis of the Vehemeyer family collection of more than 350 clocks, which are illustrated at the end of each relevant chapter, it gives insight into the relative importance of each country and the mutual influence these countries exerted on each other. Owing to its large number of beautifully produced photographs of both the exterior and very often also the interior of the various artefacts, as well as the explanatory accompanying texts, which follow a set pattern, this book will prove to be of interest to both laymen and specialist alike. 9053494316 / ISBN-13: 978-9053494318. Very heavy set, postage for about 9 KG. PRICE REDUCED FOR THIS SET AS ONE CORNER OF THE SLIP CASE AND ONE CORNER OF ONE OF THE VOLUMES HAS BEEN SLIGHTLY BUMPED. REDUCED FROM £ 225.
