About this Item

First edition: Pieter Burmann the younger?s edition of Propertius, based primarily on Brouckhusius?s text and ? after Burmann?s death ? edited and completed by Laurentius Santen with commentary on the final elegy. Graesse points out some flaws in the text and exposition, but says that ?les notes de Burmann sont de nouvelles preuves de son ?rudition,? and Dibdin agrees that the commentary is ?a treasure of critical and philological learning.? Binding: Prize binding of contemporary vellum, covers framed and panelled in gilt rolls with gilt-stamped corner fleurons and gilt central vignette with the crest of the city of Amsterdam, spine with gilt-ruled raised bands and gilt-stamped decorations in compartments. The partially printed, partially inscribed, bound-in prize certificate reads ?Ingenuo magnaeque spei adolescenti, Henrico Gerteler propter insignes in artibus humanioribus progessus, in classe tertia . . .
