About this Item

Titles of first four volumes in red and black, text in double columns. Engraved frontispiece portrait in first volume. Contemporary paneled calf; light browning and some faint marginal damp-stains to Volumes I and II, but generally an excellent set. From the library of American bibliophile Denis Duveen with his bookplate, and with the armorial bookplate of the "Comes de Solms" First edition of this major collection of biographies containing hundreds of details otherwise unavailable, covering persons of all time periods and nationalities. One of the richest repositories of anecdotes, strange occurrences and characters of the Baroque, it is an indispensable reference work to this date.Jöcher (1694-1758) was a German historian, biographer and professor of philosophy and history at the University of Leipzig. He conceived of the idea for this work after contributing two augmented editions to Mencke's Compendioses gelehrten-lexikon, which he found to be quite inadequate. He spent seventeen years researching the work, writing approximately 60,000 entries.Adelung (1732-1806) was a German grammarian and philologist who greatly contributed to the standardization of the German language. He was a voluminous writer whose works include various grammars and dictionaries. The thick two volumes of supplements that he contributed to this work included biographies of many of great thinkers from the second half of the eighteenth century. Bookseller Inventory # 10942
