About this Item

4 volumes, folio, including the 2 volume supplement (Lucca, 1731), vignette title pages in first two volumes, titles printed in red and black in the supplement, woodcut initials throughout, text in double column, 4 engraved folding maps (two of the Holy Land, 1 of the eastern Mediterranean basin, 1 of Babylon), folding plan of the ancient city of Jerusalem, 13 engraved plates, primarily of Jewish antiquities, 4 engraved numismatic plates; contemporary full paste-paper boards (soiled), uncut, manuscript titling on spine; some mild dampstaining, top of the spine of the first volume with a thumbnail-size chip out, but generally a good, sound set, or better. Calmet (1672-1757) was a French Benedictine scholar and teacher of philosophy and theology. "The erudition of Calmet's exegetical writings won him a reputation that was not confined to the Roman Catholic Church, but they have failed to stand the test of modern scholarship. His Dictionnaire historique is among the most noteworthy [and] as a pioneer in a branch of Biblical study, which received wide development in the 19th century, Calmet is worthy of remembrance" (EB-11). Calmet was the first to refrain from giving allegorical interpretations, confining himself to only the literal. This Latin translation is by Giovanni Dominico Mansi (1692-1769). The work was originally published in French in 2 volumes in 1722, and the supplement in 1728. The present set combines the second Latin edition of the first two volumes, and the first Latin edition of the supplement. Ebert 3359; this edition not noted by Brunet, Graesse or Vancil.
