Item Description: Brandenburg, zu finden bey Johann Ernst Wohlfelden, Buchhändlern. Gedruckt by Christian Hallen, Kön. Preuss. privil. Buchh, 1729., 1729. 8vo. (XLVIII, including frontispiece),624 p. Vellum 17.5 cm (Ref: Not in Schweiger, Brunet, Ebert, Graesse; not yet in VD18) (Details: Nice copy; 5 thongs laced through cover; shorttitle in ink on frontcover; frontispiece by Daniel Fincke depicting the historian Nepos at work, while Mars and Athena keep guard. Title in red and black. Latin text on upper half, and German commentary on the lower half of the page. Good quality paper) (Condition: Vellum somewhat soiled; small stamp and a name on the verso of the frontispiece; front flyleaf renewed) (Note: This is an edition with accompanying commentary in German of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium'. It is the first collection of biographies from antiquity. It contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. An ancient editor added to this collection the lives of M. Porcius Cato, and of Pomponius Atticus, the friend and correspondent of Cicero. Already in late antiquity this collection was ascribed to the grammarian Aemilius Probus, and the 'editio princeps' of 1471 bears his name. In his edition of 1569 the French classical scholar Dionysius Lambinus proved on stylistic grounds that this work must have been written by the contemporary of Cicero, Cornelius Nepos alone. Later editions often mention both names, and combine the names of the authors with 'vel', 'seu','sive', or 'vulgo'. The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. The German scholar and historian Caspar Gottschling, 1679-1739, is the author of a great number of publications. He used many pseudonymes, among which 'Carolus de Gaule', or 'Charles de Gaule'. Since 1710 he was Rektor of the gymnasium of Neustadt Brandenburg. Best known are his editions of the school authors Nepos, Pliny, Cicero and Horace. In 1717 he published in Halle his German translation of Nepos. This was followed by his edition of Nepos with a commentary in German. Wellknown is also his contribution to the Land of Cockaigne legend, 'Der Staat von Schlaraffenland' which he published in 1710. (See for Gottschling 'Handbuch Gelehrtenkultur der Frühen Neuzeit', Bln., 2001, p. 310/11)) (Provenance: Stamp and manuscript name, dated 1874, of 'Dollinger' on the verso of the frontispiece) (Collation: a-c8, A-2Q8) (Photographs on request) 2000 gr.

Item Description: Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Apud Samuelem Luchtmans, 1734., 1734. (XVI including frontispiece),765,(187) p. Half calf 21.5 cm (Ref: Schweiger 2,300/1; Dibdin 2,246; Moss 2,320; Ernesti/Fabricius I,107: 'Optima hodie et nitidissima est') (Details: Back gilt and with 5 raised bands; black morocco shield in the second compartment; covers marbled; margins preserved uncut; frontispiece, executed by J. Visscher, depicting Clio with a pen in her hand, receiving advice from Kronos, scythe at hand, Fama blows her trumpet; title in red and black; printer's mark on title, depicting Athena, motto: 'Tuta sub Aegide Pallas'; small engravings of portraits and objects in the text on 11 pages) (Condition: Head and tail of spine damaged; cover rubbed and scuffed; small library label on the frontcover; half of front flyleaf cut off vertically; flyleaf in the rear gone; 12 gatherings are somewhat browning) (Note: This is an edition with commentary of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium'. He is the author of the first surviving ancient collection of biographies. 'De excellentibus etc.' contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. Nepos corresponded with Cicero and was close with Cicero's friend Atticus. The collection served probably as a model for Plutarch's Vitae Parallelae. In his own days and in late antiquity Nepos was considered to be a source of importance. The churchfather Hieronymus, included him in his 'De viris illustribus' (392 A.D.) in his list of great authors and historians. Already in late antiquity this collection was ascribed to the grammarian Aemilius Probus, and the 'editio princeps' of 1471 bears his name. The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. The biographies provided the pupils also models of behaviour. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. This edition is a socalled Variorum edition, an edition which contained everthing a student required. Such an edition offers the 'textus receptus' which is widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. The Dutch schoolmaster who skillfully excerpted, compared and contrasted the material of brighter minds is Augstinus van Staveren, 1704-1772. He was rector of the schola latina at Leiden since 1750. He is known for this edition of Nepos, which saw several later editions, and his 'Auctores Mythographi Latini', which was published in 1742. The frontispiece, or rather the copper plate for this frontispiece and the text engravings which belong to this edition, have a long history. The same plates were used for almost 150 years by different publishing firms. The plates were first used for by Hackius edition of 1658 and then the reissue of 1675. The next users were the Blaeu brothers, in 1687, thereupon probably Mortier, in 1704 (not seen by us), then Janssonius van Waesberge in 1705, and then by Samuel Luchtmans, who seems the last owner, in 1728. Luchtmans used the plates in 1734 again for his new edition of Van Staveren, next for the second edition of 1773, and finally for the 'editio minor' of Van Staveren, which was published in 1793) (Collation: *- 2*8, A-3N8, 3O4) (Photographs on request) 2000 gr.

Item Description: Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Apud Sam. et Joan. Luchtmans, 1773., 1773. 8vo. (XXXII, including frontispiece),832,(176, index) p.; text-illustrations on 11 p. Vellum 22 cm (Ref: Schweiger 2,302: 'vielfach verbesserte und bereicherte Ausgabe'; Dibdin 2,246: 'a very elaborate edition', 'It is in great repute'; Moss 2,320; cf. Ernesti/Fabricius I,107; Spoelder p. 490, Amsterdam 9) (Details: Prize copy, including the printed prize; back gilt; 6 thongs laced through both hinges; borders gilt, with gilt corner pieces; on both covers the gilt coat of arms of Amsterdam; engraved frontispiece (dated 1794), executed by J. Visscher; engraved printer's mark on the title, depicting Athena, motto: 'Tuta sub Aegide Pallas'; small text engravings (portraits, illustrations) on 11 p.) (Condition: Vellum soiled; all 4 ties gone; excellent paper) (Note: This is an edition with commentary of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium'. He is the author of the first surviving ancient collection of biographies. 'De excellentibus etc.' contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. Nepos corresponded with Cicero and was close with Cicero's friend Atticus. The collection served probably as a model for Plutarch's Vitae Parallelae. In his own days and in late antiquity Nepos was considered to be a source of importance. The churchfather Hieronymus, included him in his 'De viris illustribus' (392 A.D.) in his list of great authors and historians. Already in late antiquity this collection was ascribed to the grammarian Aemilius Probus, and the 'editio princeps' of 1471 bears his name. The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. The biographies provided the pupils also models of behaviour. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. This edition is a socalled Variorum edition, an edition which contained everthing a student required. Such an edition offers the 'textus receptus' which is widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. The Dutch schoolmaster who skillfully excerpted, compared and contrasted the material of brighter minds is Augstinus van Staveren, 1704-1772, was rector of the schola latina at Leiden since 1750. Nevertheless he proudly announces in the preface that he also has consulted in his search for 'variantes lectiones' 4 manuscripts of the Library of the University of Leiden, and the collations of 2 English manuscripts. This second edition of Van Staveren's Nepos was published posthumously. In the short 'dedicatio' to the second edition, written by Carolus Antonius Wetstenius J.C., we read that Van Staveren, who was already halfway, asked him, short before his death to complete the second corrected and augmented edition. Van Staveren, whom he calls 'vir amicissimus' was once his teacher, Westein tells us. Van Staveren had already skipped 'quaedam, suaque non pauca', to prevent the book from being too overloaded. Van Staveren is known for this edition of Nepos, which saw several later editions, and his 'Auctores Mythographi Latini', which was published in 1742. Not much known of Carolus Antonius Wetstein, 1742-1797. He was a Leyden lawyer and also an accomplished Neolatin poet. (Van der Aa 20,159) The bibliographers donot mention his involvement in the editing of his teacher's Nepos. The frontispiece, or rather the copper plate for this frontispiece, has a story of almost 150 years. It was first used in 1658, then 1675, 1687, 1704 (?), 1705, 1728, 1734, this book of 1773, and finally in 1793) (Provenance: The prize is for Henricus Oort: 'Ingenuo optimaeque spei adolescentulo Henrico Oort. Hoc. Bookseller Inventory # 130139

Item Description: London - Scatchard & Letterman, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, et al, 1820. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. A scarce first edition of Carey's corrected Dauphin Nepos. Bound in leather with gilt spine decoration. Very scarce. This scarce work is a corrected edition of the 1765 original quarto edition printed for the use of Dauphin on the order of Louis XIV. This taskwas intrusted to Carey by The Proprietors, as stated in the Preface, as latter editions of the Dauphin Nepos had been rendered corrupt by accidents of typography and unauthorised alterations. On the whole, Gentle Reader, I think I may safely venture to say, that, however few and slender my improvements, I here nevertheless present you with a better edition of the Dauphin Nepos, than was originally presented to the dauphin himself, by order of the Grand Monarque. Advertisement by John Carey, 1819Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The front free-endpaper has been removed. The front board is held by the cords only, and the rear is just starting but still firm. There ismild wear to the extremities, includingmild rubbing and edge wear. Internally the pages are generally bright with only slight browning and theoccasional spot or handling mark. With slightly browned tidemarks from the front to page xvii, and from page 225 to the rear. Overall the condition is good only with a very good interior. Bookseller Inventory # 009614
