About this Item

Second and best Burmann edition. 4to. pp. [154], 760, [96]. With engraved frontispiece depicting the Argonauts. Title is printed in red and black with vignette medallion depicting an ancient rowing ship. Very faint library stamp in outer margin of title and on p. 101. Bound in attractive modern half calf with marbled boards and end papers. Original spine label is preserved. Interior is generally clean with periodic mild scattered foxing; occasional small tears are neatly sealed; some staining present on the bottom outer marginal corner of some leaves. Gaius Valerius Flaccus was a first century c.e. Roman poet. His surviving epic verse work, the "Argonauticon," describes the quest of Jason and the Argonauts for the legendary Golden Fleece. The work exists in eight books but was left incomplete by the author. This edition of the "Argonauticon" was edited by Pieter Burmann (1668-1741) a professor of History and Eloquence at Utrecht and Leiden. He compiled and included copious notes from previous scholars. Detailed indexes are given in the rear. Burman’s edition also contains the "Supplement of Pius" and the "Argonautica of Orpheus." [Schweiger II, p. 1100; Dibdin II, p. 516; Brunet V, 1046 – "Bonne edition"; Graesse VII]. Bookseller Inventory # 000423
