Verlagsfrisch New copy Studies in European Urban History (1100-1800) SEUH 17 For the Common Good State Power and Urban Revolts in the Reign of Mary of Burgundy, 1477-1482 J. Haemers XII+319 p., 16 b/w ill., 178 x 254 mm, 2009 ISBN: 978-2-503-52986-8 Languages: English Paperback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 65,00 In 1477, the Low Countries were in chaos. On 5 January Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, was killed in the battle of Nancy. His political adversaries used this fortuitous opportunity to reverse his much-hated policies. The late duke's confidents were executed, as nobles fled from court. The French king declared war on Charles' heir, Mary of Burgundy, and the cities rose in rebellion against the duchy. United in their opposition to the ducal court, the Estates-General instituted a new state structure which severely reduced the power of the central state. The duchess' new husband, Maximilian of Austria, was never able to dictate war policy nor appease the discontent of the populace, because his first priority was to strengthen the power of the Habsburg dynasty. In 1482, when Mary of Burgundy died after a tragic fall from her horse, revolt again spread across the county of Flanders. In this dramatic crisis that would last for a decade, central authority was again challenged by a political alternative, the Flemish regency council. This book examines the people behind the revolt. From a murky background of conflicting loyalties, it identifies the principal allies of the Habsburg dynasty and key political adversaries of Maximilian in the Flemish cities. An in-depth analysis of their lives and their socio-economic and cultural backgrounds on the eve of the Flemish Revolt elucidates their reasons for rebelling or remaining loyal to court. By focusing on disloyal nobles at court and urban dissenters in the county of Flanders, this book goes beyond previous studies of the revolt and offers new insights into the social history of medieval politics. In the end, readers will discover whether the court, the nobility, and the urban rebels were really striving for the goal they claimed, the common good. Jelle Haemers is a post-doctoral research fellow at Ghent University (IAP-project 'City and Society in the Low Countries, 1100-1800'). His research interests focus mainly on urban history of the Late Middle Ages. !Winner of the Frans Van Cauwelaert Prize for 2008!. Buch. Artikel-Nr. 2936

Buchbeschreibung London: printed by Thomas Harper, for Richard Collins, and are to be sold at his shop, 1632, 1632. Quarto (212 × 168 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, tawed skin ties (all but one broken), both covers with gilt initials "Sr T B" as supralibros. A little dampstaining to final quire and rear cover, else a very good, fresh copy with ample margins. Complete with first and last blank leaves; in this issue, the title is a cancel. First edition in English; rare. The translation is actually by the Hispanophile James Mabbe, though Edward Blount, as was his habit, signs the dedication as if he were its translator. (A variant issue of the same year has Blount's name instead of Richard Collins's in the imprint: the two booksellers were close neighbours in St Paul's Churchyard.) Edward Blount [Blunt] (bap. 1562, d. in or before 1632) is best known to posterity as the chief publisher of the first Shakespeare folio (with commendatory verses by his friends Mabbe and Leonard Digges). In other respects too, he was the most important English publisher of the early seventeenth century. He was a remarkably secular bookseller – he rarely published sermons, for example, popular and profitable though they were – and his list shows a decidedly international bent, with European histories and European travel books; dictionaries of Italian, Spanish, and Latin; and works translated out of French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Greek, Latin, and neo-Latin. He also developed relationships with English ambassadors abroad, like Sir Dudley Carleton, ambassador to Venice and The Hague, and involved himself in the Italian art trade, as well as dealing in currencies, cloth, seeds, and foodstuffs. He was a regular correspondent of William Trumbull, English agent in Brussels, and a close friend of his fellow stationer John Bill, Sir Thomas Bodley's agent in acquiring books printed abroad. A relatively late entry in the genre, Juan de Santa María's manual of advice to princes, República y policía christiana (first published in Madrid, 1615), was of particular interest in England at this time, as Charles I had set about reforming court manners on the Spanish model. Though no relation to the publisher, the supralibros is likely that of Sir Thomas Pope Blount (1556–1639) of Tittenhanger, Hertfordshire, whose well-travelled son, Sir Henry, was the author of A Voyage into the Levant (1636). Sir Henry was a supporter of Charles I; he attended the king at York and took part in the battle of Edgehill, supposedly being entrusted after it with the care of the young princes, the future James II and Charles II.
