About this Item

xvi, 541 (works by Lagarde: 542-44) p.; 24 cm. Esther, texts a-b in parallel with full apparatus, p. 512-41. [No more issued] 'Similar reasoning led Field to regard codd. 22, 36, 48, 51, 62, 90, 93, 144, 147, 233, 308 as presenting a more or less Lucianic text in the Prophets. Meanwhile, Lagarde had independently reached nearly the same result, so far as regards the historical books. He satisfied himself that codd. 19, 82, 93, 108, 118 [his h, f, m, d, p], had sprung from a common archetype, the text of which was practically identical with that of the LXX. as quoted by Chrysostom, i.e., with the Antiochian text of the fourth century, which presumably was Lucianic. Lagarde proceeded to construct from these and other sources a provisional text of Lucian, but his lamented death intercepted the work, and only the first volume of his Lucianic LXX. has appeared (Genesis-2 Esdr., Esther).' (Swete, Introduction to the Old Testament in Greek, p. 83) -- Darlow and Moule: brief note after no. 4920 -- 'There can be little doubt that without Lagarde the field of Septuagint studies would present today a much less ordered array, since to him is due that directive which in large measure has determined the disposition of its resources by laying down the principles for their effective use. Even with those who have reacted most strongly against his convictions and procedure the debt is no less weighty, for it is precisely on the 'Lagardian principles' that the fieid is so sharply divided.' (Jellicoe, The Septuagint and modern study, p. 5 f.) Good x-l half french morocco, joints worn. Pages lightly toned. Bookseller Inventory # 000134
