About this Item

Small 8vo. 247,(1)pp. This is the "Declamationum Liber", or part two (complete) of Quintilian's "Institutionum Oratoriarum Libri XII" and though it has its own title page and pagination, there is no publisher indicia; that was printed only in part 1. The final page is a woodcut of Gryphius' trademark griffin printer's device. Gryphius issued ten editions of Quintilian, all between 1531 and 1575. Of these editions we have eliminated five based either on personal inspection or catalogued pagination, leaving editions in 1534, 1536, 1540, 1544 and 1549, of which this copy is one. Later (18th cent.?) binding of full calf; spine in six compartments with raised bands, gilt; red leather lettering piece, gilt. Hinges neatly mended else a very good copy with a fine textblock. The copy of lawyer, scholar, Greek translator and editor of the Chicago Tribune Horace White (1834-1916), with his bookplate on the front pastedown. All editions of Gryphius' Quintilian are uncommon. In Latin. Bookseller Inventory # 17434
