Excellent, as new condition (We only removed the publishers satin paper for protecting the dustjacket with Mylar).

When Printing an the Mind of Man was first published in 1967, it became soon established as a major reference work for book-collectors, booksellers, librarians and scholars. Today the initials PMM as the standard abbreviation for Printing and the Mind of Man are probably more often used than any other formula wherever important and influential books are described.
This second edition of Printing of the mind and Man has been substantially revised and enlarged. A new bibliographical section has been added by a well-known bibliographical scholar. Here, no fewer than 550 new bibliographies or bibliographical references are given. Furthermore, the original index has been revised and some 350 errors, misprints as well as wrong page references have been corrected.

"A work justly held in high estimation by all antiquaries in literature (250 copies printed) . . . The articles . . . under their separate heads of Poetry, History, &c., with a general index to the whole, give the new edition a great superiority over the first edition." - Lowndes.

Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges, 1st Baronet (30 November 1762 – 8 September 1837) was an English bibliographer and genealogist. He was also Member of Parliament for Maidstone from 1812 to 1818.
Educated at Maidstone Grammar School and The King's School, Canterbury, Brydges was admitted to Queens' College, Cambridge in 1780, though he did not take a degree. He was called to the bar from the Middle Temple in 1787. He wrote some novels and poems, now forgotten, but rendered valuable service through his bibliographical publications, Censura Literaria, Titles and Opinions of Old English Books (10 vols. 1805-9), his editions of Edward Phillips's Theatrum Poetarum Anglicanorum (1800), Arthur Collins's Peerage of England (1812), and of many rare Elizabethan authors. He was a founding member of the Roxburghe Club, a publishing club of wealthy bibliophiles. He was elected a Knight Grand Commander of the Equestrian, Secular, and Chapterial Order of St. Joachim in 1807, at a Chapter held in Franconia.
In 1789, the Chandos barony became dormant. Egerton Brydges attempted to claim the title, initially on behalf on his older brother Rev. Edward Tymewell Brydges, then later on his own behalf. The litigation continued from 1790 to 1803, before the claims were ultimately rejected, but he continued to style himself per legem terrae Baron Chandos of Sudeley. It seems likely that not only was the claim groundless but that the evidence was forged. He was made a baronet on 27 December 1814. He died in Geneva. (Wikipedia)

  Ritter, Gerhard. Verzeichnis der Schriften von Gerhard Ritter. Zusammengestellt von Klaus Schwabe. München, Oldenbourg, 1958. 8°. 19 Seiten. Broschur. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur geringen Gebrauchsspuren.

Gerhard Ritter (* 6. April 1888 in Bad Sooden-Allendorf; † 1. Juli 1967 in Freiburg im Breisgau) war ein bekannter deutscher Historiker.
Der Sohn eines reformierten Pfarrers besuchte das Gymnasium in Gütersloh. Nach dem Abitur studierte er an den Universitäten von München, Heidelberg und Leipzig. Ab 1912 war Ritter als Schullehrer tätig, und im Ersten Weltkrieg kämpfte er als Infanterist.

1919 heiratete er Gertrud Reichardt, mit der er drei Kinder haben sollte. Er war Professor an den Universitäten Heidelberg (1918-1923), Hamburg (1923-1925) und Freiburg im Breisgau (1925-1956). 1925 veröffentlichte Ritter eine Biografie von Martin Luther, die Luther positiv darstellte. Später verfasste Ritter Biografien von anderen historischen Persönlichkeiten, u.a. des preußischen Staatsmannes Karl Freiherr vom und zum Stein und des preußischen Königs Friedrich der Große. Ritter schrieb in den Fünfziger Jahren auch eine Biografie seines Freundes Carl Friedrich Goerdeler, der als Widerstandskämpfer nach dem 20. Juli 1944 hingerichtet worden war. Die Schwerpunkte von Ritters Arbeit schlossen die politische, militärische, und kulturelle Geschichte Deutschlands ein.

Ritter gehörte zu den Nationalkonservativen. Er befürwortete für Deutschland eine aristokratische Staatsform. Am Anfang der NS-Zeit billigte Ritter das neue Regime und seine Außenpolitik. Jedoch wandte er sich von den Nationalsozialisten ab, weil er gegen die Kirchenverfolgung war. Ritter war selbst Lutheraner und schloss sich der Bekennenden Kirche an. Diese versuchte sich den Bemühungen der Nationalsozialisten, die Kirchen gleichzuschalten, zu entziehen. Ritter gehörte der konservativen Opposition an und war in den Staatsstreich vom 20. Juli 1944 gegen Hitler eingeweiht. Nach dessen Scheitern wurde er vorübergehend festgenommen.

Nach Kriegsende schrieb Ritter sein Werk Europa und die deutsche Frage. Er lehnte die These ab, dass das Dritte Reich die unumgängliche Kulmination der gesamten deutschen Geschichte sei. Ritter glaubte eher, dass der Nationalsozialismus nur ein Teil eines allgemeinen Trends war. Nicht nur Deutschland, so Ritter, strebe nach dem Totalitarismus. Wenn man diese Tatsache in Betracht ziehe, sei es unrecht, die Deutschen zu heftig zu kritisieren. Nach Ritters Auffassung war die Schwäche der Weimarer Republik ihre überschüssige Demokratie. Eine kraftlose Demokratie ließ sich von den Appellen des Packs übernehmen. Hätte das Kaiserreich, welches Ritter befürwortete, den Ersten Weltkrieg überlebt, wäre der Nationalsozialismus nicht stark geworden. Ritter wurde deswegen der vehementeste Kritiker Fritz Fischers, der Kontinuitätslinien zwischen Kaiserreich und Nationalsozialismus hergestellt hatte. Ritter lehnte kategorisch Fischers Behauptungen ab, dass hauptsächlich Deutschland die Verantwortung für den Ersten Weltkrieg tragen müsse. Diese Diskussion wurde zum Bestandteil der historiografisch eminent bedeutsamen Fischer-Kontroverse. Gerhard Ritter, der sein Lebenswerk gegen die deutsche Kriegsschuldthese in Gefahr sah, bezeichnete Fischers Buch Griff nach der Weltmacht als Gipfel in einer politisch-historischen Modeströmung unserer Tage, womit er die angebliche "Selbstverdunkelung des deutschen Geschichtsbewußtseins" seit 1945 meinte. Ritter kritisierte an Fischers Methode, er habe nicht zwischen einzelnen Träumen bzw. Hoffnungen und ernsten Zielen, zwischen taktisch richtigen Ambitionen von Diplomaten und nackten Forderungen der Alldeutschen und Militärs unterschieden. Ritters 3. und 4. Band von Staatskunst und Kriegshandwerk wurden quasi eine Apologie Bethmann Hollwegs und eine einzige Schematisierung der innerdeutschen Politik im Weltkrieg; - der guten Staatskunst Bethmann Hollwegs steht das böse Kriegshandwerk Ludendorffs in angeblich grundsätzlichem Gegensatz gegenüber. Ritters Kritik an Fischers Untersuchungen blieb jedoch grundsätzlich im Biografischen. Die Fehler der deutschen Diplomatie und Staatsführung tat Ritter als bloße, von den Militärs aufgezwungene, Formfehler ab. Fischer meinte sogar überspitzt, Ritter stelle Bethmann Hollweg als eine Art Widerstandskämpfer gegen Kaiser, Militär, Industrielle, Parteiführer, Junker, Alldeutsche und konservative Presse dar. Ritter distanzierte sich bei extremen Randerscheinungen verbal vom deutschen Imperialismus und Militarismus, um so die Hauptkräfte der deutschen Geschichte als gemäßigt zu retten.
Ritter starb 1967 in Freiburg im Breisgau. Er war einer der letzten traditionellen Historiker des Deutschen Idealismus. Diese Gruppe betrachtete die Erfassung von Geschichte als eine Kunst. Ihre Angehörigen bemühten sich, sich kreativ mit den menschlichen Subjekten der Vergangenheit zu identifizieren. Anstelle einer Geschichte „von unten“ betonten sie hauptsächlich die besondere Bedeutung politischer und militärischer Ereignisse sowie die Handlungen „großer Männer“. (Wikipedia)

Francesco Antonio Zaccaria (March 27, 1714 - October 10, 1795) was an Italian theologian, historian, and prolific writer.
Zaccaria was born in Venice. He joined the Austrian province of the Society of Jesus on 18 October 1731. Zaccaria taught grammar and rhetoric at Gorizia, and was ordained priest at Rome in 1740. He spent some time in pastoral work in Ancona, Fermo, and Pistoia, gaining renown as a preacher and controversial lecturer. In 1751 he succeeded Muratori as ducal archivist and librarian of Modena, but was removed in 1768, owing to his Antifebronio, in which he strenuously defended the rights of the Holy See.
He was then appointed librarian at the Jesuit professed house in Rome. Clement XIII allowed him an annual pension, continued under Clement XIV, and increased by Pius VI, who appointed him professor of church history at the Sapienza and director of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy. He was a member of at least 19 Italian academies. He died in Rome, aged 81. (Wikipedia)
