Untouched and unrestored in completely original condition. A magnificent copy. Exceedingly scarce first edition of the first Scandinavian translation of Machiavelli's "Il Principe", namely the first Swedish translation.
Through its Scandinavian translation, the work came to have an immense impact on Scandinavian politics and philosophy and was considered a breakthrough work of political thought, albeit highly controversial and not at all acceptable at the time. Even though antedating some other European versions by more than two centuries, the first translation into a Nordic language came to signify substantial changes in the political climate of the Nordic countries and sparked a debate that was to last another century, until Machavelli was finally accepted in the North.
Klingenberg's work, however, remained an isolated fact for more than a century. Actually "The Prince" as a separate work, was translated only in by Rudolf August Helfrid Afzelius ; by that time the debate over Machiavelli had been settled, and the value of "The Prince" finally Acknowledged. The first Danish translation of the whole work dates back to only Therefore the first Scandinavian translation of "The Prince" was completed in Sweden around the middle of the eighteenth century, during the "frihetstid" The "Age of Liberty", , a period full of political, social and cultural turmoil: These are the years of the making of a political conscience and of the spread of new political theories, of the development of rhetoric, of the foundation of reviews and literary associations, as well as of scientific and cultural academies; these years marked a new openness to foreign cultures and the diffusion of Enlightenment ideas.
The "Age of Liberty" is also a period full of political and cultural conflicts and uncertainty.

The Encyclopedia Britannica observes that this study represents the pioneer "example in Italian literature of a national biography, the first attempt in any literature to trace the vicissitudes of a people 's life in their logical sequence, deducing each successive phase from passions or necessities inherent in preceding circumstances, reasoning upon them from general principles and inferring corollaries from the conduct of the future.

First Printing, Rebacked with matching recent leather and with the inner hinges reinforced. Lacking some of the original endpapers. Some rather clumsy paper patch repairs to mostly margins of pp. The letter as Neville had written it, contained statements potentially treasonous and so the offending part was left out of the letter by the publisher when the book was printed and a blank space was left in the text block of the letter by the printer.
Buyers at the bookshop of the publisher, John Starkey, were supplied with a copy of the offending text and encouraged to insert it into the text. This copy of the works has the first and part of the second sentence of the treasonous text hand written in ink in the space provided in the text block which would have made it a dangerous volume to possess in those politically turbulent English times.

Vignette of Machiavelli's portrait on title. Separate dated title pages to all parts except the Historie fiorentine which begins the volume. Dell'arte della guerra contains typographical figures depicting military formations and a double-page woodcut illustration depicting an army camp, and a manuscript table of contents following L'asino d'oro.
Contemporary half vellum and marbled boards, manuscript titles on spine. Despite some browning and damp-staining, an excellent copy with an ownership inscription dated on the paste-down. Early edition of the political works of Machiavelli, which include: --Gli otto libri delle Historie Fiorentine. Livio a Zanobi Buondelmonti et a Cosimo Rucellai. La vita di Castruccio Castracani. This particular publication is called the Edizione Testina, named after the author's woodcut portrait on all the half-titles. Five variant editions are known, all showing as the fictitious year of printing on the title page, but which in reality are seventeenth-century forgeries.
The Testina edition constitutes an interesting bibliographic case because of the particular difficulties of identification for the presence of variants, omissions and rearrangements. Machiavelli's masterpiece, Il Principe, is the work with which he "founded the science of modern politics" by analyzing Cesare Borgia's much-admired "mixture of audacity and prudence, cruelty and fraud, self-reliance and distrust of others" PMM. Machiavelli firmly believes in the separation between politics and ethics, as each have different objects and goals.
