Détails bibliographiques


Titre : Opera quae Exstant

Reliure : Vellum

Etat du livre : Very Good

Description :

Bound in calf-skin vellum-- spine has 6 ridges with the words TACITUS Curante GRONOVIO (clearly done with quill and ink). It appears some text has worn away below this. The leather binding is an ivory color, more discolored along the spine, where it has begun to wear away at 2 of the ridges. Front and back are embossed with floral diamond design-- shows signs of shelfwear but nothing the sturdy vellum wouldn't handle. The binding is tight. Outer edges of pages very brown with age, dust and sun. Based on other book descriptions, I believe this is volume 1 of a two volume set. There's some foxing throughout the book, and yellowing around the edges of pages, as would be expected of a book this age. Paper is thicker than paper of later books, and you can see that each letter in the text was arranged by a typesetter. First pages (the introduction) begin with larger font that gradually reduces in size. 756 pages in all. The title page reads as follows: C. Cornelii Taciti OPERA QUAE EXSTANT Integris BEATI RHENANI, FULVII URSINI, M. ANTONII MURETI, JOSIAE MERCERI, JUSTI LIPSII, VALENTIS ACIDALII, CURTII PICHENAE, JANI GRUTERI, HUGONIS GROTII, JOANNIS FREINSHEMII, JOANNUS FREDERICI GRONOVII, & felecti aliorum Commentariis illustrata. Ex Recensione & Cum Notis JACOBI GRONOVII (engraving of a woman and boy with the words VIRTUTIS GLORIA MERCES) TRAJECTI BATAVORUM Apud { JACOBUM a POOLSUM, } Bibliop. et { JOHANNEM VISCH. } cIc. Ic. ccxxi On the left-hand facing page is a full-page engraving of art, sculpture, and writing figures with the publisher's name along the bottom. N° de réf. du libraire 123531latin
