About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Bibliotheca Classica; or, a Classical Dictionary Containing a Full Account of All the Proper Names Mentioned in Antient Authors. To which are subjoined, tables of coins, weights, and measures, in use among the Greeks and Romans by Lempriere, J. [John].

Description:

v, [1], ca. 800 pages (supposedly 807, but they are not numbered and I didn't count them); printed errata on final leaf. A dictionary of the Greek and Latin classics, with summaries of the major characters of myth. A profoundly influential book that stayed in print for a century. Many scholars believe that John Keats relied heavily on it when writing Endymion and Hyperion. Printing and the Mind of Man, 236: The first of a new kind of manual: the rendering of a body of knowledge not easily accessible in any other form into a system of alphabetical articles for the use of those who lack the time or the learning to seek out the original sources; the 'Oxford Companion' series is a distinguished descendant.' This, ESTC T98229, is one of two Reading imprints of the first edition. Both are scarce, with just one record at auction in recent years (1994, $1,150). First edition (first printing), bound in a contemporary calf binding with five raised bands on the spine and a morocco spine label. Front hinge cracked, but the cords are holding. Front blank detached but present. Spine ends chipped. But much nicer than usually found (i.e., not rebound). A scarce book. Bookseller Inventory #
