About this Item

17th-century edition of Eutropius's much-printed history of Rome with commentary from German classical scholar and geographer Christoph Cellarius (1638?1707). The text is printed in double columns, one in Greek (being Paeanius' Greek version) and the other in Latin (Eutropius' original); Eutropius completed the Breviarium romanae by 369 and Paeanius' translation appeared before 380. While this book lacks the free endpapers and the printed title-page, it offers a => hand-colored engraved title-page, executed by M. Hailler's burin and embellished by a watercolorist in blue and yellow. Provenance: Unreadable inked ownership signature dated 1752 on pastedown and rubber-stamp of the Rev. Charles Woessner of Berkeley, CA, on back of title-page; later in the Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 8vo (16.8 cm; 6.625"). [42], 263, 268?74, 42, [26] pp. Lacks printed t-p & two endpapers. Dibdin, Greek and Latin Classics, vol. II, pp. 2?3; Schweiger, Handbuch der classischen Bibliographie, II, 346. Vellum over pasteboards, title inked on spine, all edges speckled red; soiled and scratched, ink spots on edges, joints cracked but textblock firmly attached. Ex-library as above, call number and five-digit accession stamp on front pastedown.
