Arriani Nicomedensis Expeditionis Alexandri libri septem, et: ARRIANUS.

About this Item: Amsterdam (Amstelaedami), Apud Wetstenium, 1757., 1757. 8vo. XLVIII,637,(211) p., frontispiece, folding map of Europe and the Orient. Vellum 21 cm (Ref: STCN ppn 212310364; Hoffmann 1,377; Brunet 1,497; Dibdin 1,329: 'An excellent and commodious edition'; Moss 1,188; Graesse 1,227; Ebert 1236) (Details: 6 thongs laced through the joints. Frontispiece by I.K. Philips (in Greek letters), depicting an armed and winged Nike crushing 3 ennemies, a black African, an Asian and a European; in the air flies Fama with her trumpet. Title in red & black. Printer's mark on the title, depicting a hand sharpening a chisel on a whetstone, the motto is: 'Terar dum prosim'. The map is executed by N. Frankendaal. The text is printed in 2 columns, Greek and Latin side by side) (Condition: Vellum slightly soiled and wrinkled at the top of the spine. Paper clipping on Nicomedia from 'The Gentleman's Magazine' (Vol. 98, 1828, Supplement part 1, p. 627) tipped in on front pastedown. Old & legible ink annotations on the front flyleaf. Rear endpapers stained, and its pastedown is detached. Paper yellowing) (Note: This edition of Arrianus is more or less a 'parergon' of the German Lutheran theologian Georg Raphel, latinized as Georgius Raphelius, 1673 - 1740. He was 'Pfarrer' and Superintendent of the St. Nicolai church, and Inspector of the 'Scholae Johannaeae' at Luneburg. His interest in pagan antiquity and in the New Testament generated a series of works in which he compared the language and style of the New Testament with works of ancient historians. In 1709 he published in Hamburg, 'Annotationes Philologicae in N.T. ex Xenophonte collectae'. In 1715 appeared, also in Hamburg, 'Annotationes Philologicae in N.T. ex Polybio & Arriano collectae'. He published in Lüneburg in 1731 'Annotationes in S. Scripturam ex Herodoto collectae'. In 1710 Raphel had published a German translation of the Indica of Arrian, 'Arriani Indica, d.i. Indianische Geschichte oder Reisebeschreibung der Flotte Alexanders des Grossen, aus dem Griechischen ins Deutsche Übersetzt'. The three 'Annotationes Philologicae' were reprinted together in Leiden in 1747. This edition contains an extensive biography of Raphel, with at the end a list of his published works, and a short list of not yet published work: 'Scripta Rapheliana in MSC. adhuc latentia'. One of these 'scripta latentia' is 'Annotationes in Arrianum'. In the preface (Lectori) to our edition of Arrianus of 1757 the publisher Wetstein tells us that this manuscript with notes on Arrianus had lain tucked away ever since 1709 in a drawer ('in privatis scriniis'). (p. X) It had been offered in the meantime to German publishers, who however feared that they would not make a penny from it. Wetstein tells us that finally the son-in-law of Raphel, one Conr. Arn. Schmid (whom Ebert erroneously considers to be the editor), asked him to publish this work of his beloved and admired father-in-law. Raphel not only produced the annotations, but had made also a careful recension of the Greek text, especially with the help the new edition of the Leiden professor of Greek Jacobus Gronovius, who had discovered a new important manuscript of Arrian. ('textum quam potuit accuratissime castigavit, adjutus praesertim libris MSS a Jac. Gronovio consultis'. Preface p. VIII). The manuscript of Raphel contained also a corrected Latin translation. ('versionemque permultis locis pravam elegantissime correxit'. (Idem, ibidem) Wetstein probably here refers to the Latin translation of Bonventura Vulcanius which was printed in the 1704 edition of Gronovius. Wetstein ends with the assurance that all lovers of literature will thank the son-in-law for his troubles. § Raphel is also known for this pioneering work on deaf-muteness. Three of his children were deaf and dumb. 'Paternal affection had inspired him with zeal and skill in their instruction, and in 1718 he published, for the benefit of others, the result of his labours', 'Die Kunst Taube und Stumme reden zu lehren, am Exempel seiner eigenen Tochter'. It is said that his eldest daughter spoke so well that her deficiency was hardly noticed. The girl died however 20 years old) (Provenance: On the front flyleaf at the head of the manuscript notes the name 'Mitford', and 'White') (Collation: *-3*8; A-2S8, 2T-3Q4, 3R8, 3S4) (Photographs on request) 900 gr.

About this Item: apud Wetstenium MDCCLVII [1757], Amsterdam, 1757. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Raphael Edition. 8vo (206 x 127mm). xlviii, 637, [199] pages, 5 (ads.); including half-title in Greek and added engraved title in red and black. Full-page engraved frontispiece of the personification of Victory. Folding engraved map of Alexander s expedition to Asia (p. 4). Greek and Latin text in double columns, extensive footnotes; the translation and notes by Georg Raphel (1673-1740), German Lutheran theologian and writer. Contemporary vellum boards with spine title in ink: "ARRIANUS de Expedit. Alex: G. RAPHELII"; (spine lightly darkened, covers slightly warped; some marginal toning and foxing, otherwise sound with map fully in tact). Late 18th and 19th century armorial bookplates of antiquarians William Beloe, F.S.A. (1756-1817) and T. S. Gosset of Trinity College Cambridge, (fl. 1812 and later), to front pastedown and leaves. Rear armorial bookplate of R. P. L. Booker, an English bibliophile of the early 20th century whose main collecting interest was in maps. This copy very good and well cared for under lengthy academic ownership. First Raphel Edition of Arrian s early history of the campaigns (Anabasis) of Alexander the Great. First published three years earlier, this reprint adds a valuable Greek Index. Raphel organized and devised this work as a revision of the 1704 Gronovius edition. Though initially inspired by his hero, Alexander the Great, Arrian wrote this biography with a neutral and deft hand. He uses only the best primary source material, including Alexander s own letters, as evidence for his history. Together with the Historia Indica, this compilation volume exhibits great literary acuteness and is widely regarded as the one of the most authentic and accurate of early historical works. The Indica is a description of the voyage from India to Persia by the Alexandrian officer Nearchus. The text was usually united in manuscripts with the Campaigns, as an eighth book. Though is looked to be a supplement to the text of the Campaigns, Arrian often refers to each work separately and the Indica was composed sometime later in the second century. Written in the Ionic dialect, after Herodotus, the Indica highlighted things about India which were similar to Greece. Arrian s in-depth asides about the country revealed a great deal about the history, geography, and culture of the Indian subcontinent. With the Indica, Arrian wished to depose his own narrative among familiar books, which he found less than reliable. This important edition not commonly found outside institutional copies. Dibdin calls Raphel s edition, "excellent and commodious." -- Dibdin (4th ed.), I 329; Hoffmann I, 377. Seller Inventory # D11000

About this Item: Leiden Petrus Vander Aa 1704, 1704. First of the Edition and first with Gronovius' curation, the volume printed in both Greek and Latin in parallel columns. A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE, THE MACCLESFIELD COPY WITH THEIR PLATE AT THE PASTEDOWN. The title page printed in red and black and with engraved decoration, engraved decorated capital initials at the beginning of each book, both for the Latin and Greek texts. Folio, bound at the time in full contemporary polished calf, the covers with double gilt fillet rules at the borders, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, and with a red morocco lettering label gilt. (6 ff), 376, (6) pp. An excellent, well preserved copy, still very handsome and with slight strengthening at the hinges, the text block crisp and clean throughout, with some of the occasional browning usual to the paper stock evident on some leaves. Still as fine a copy one might hope to encounter. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT, A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE. THE FIRST OF THE EDITION AND A HIGHLY IMPORTANT CLASSICAL WORK. Upon his retirement Flavius Arrianus, a Greek soldier in the Roman army, completed his seven volume work on the campaigns of Alexander, and an eighth describing India was also penned, as well as his writings on the area of the Euphrates. All are included in the present volume. 'Arrian was born of Greek ethnicity in the coastal town of Nicomedia (present-day Izmit), the capital of the Roman province of Bithynia, in what is now north-western Turkey, about 70 km from Byzantium (later Constantinople, now Istanbul). He studied philosophy in Nicopolis in Epirus, under the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, and wrote two books about the philosopher's teachings. At the same time he entered the Imperial service, and served as a junior adviser on the consilium of Gaius Avidius Nigrinus, governor of Achaea and a close friend of the future Emperor Hadrian (circa 111-114). Very little is known about his subsequent career - though it is probable that he served in Gaul and on the Danube frontier, and possible that he was in Baetica and Parthia - until he held the office of Consul in 129 or 130. In 131 he was appointed governor of the Black Sea province of Cappadocia and commander of the Roman legions on the frontier with Armenia. Arrian wrote a military treatise called Ektaxis kata Alan n, which detailed battle against the Alans, and the Techn Taktik in which he described how he would organise the legions and auxiliary troops at his disposal, among which were legions XII Fulminata and XV Apollinaris. He wrote of deploying the legionaries in depth, supported by javelin throwers, archers, and horse archers in the rear ranks to defeat the assault of the Alan cavalry using these combined arms tactics. Interestingly, there seems to be no historical record of a battle between Romans and Alans that year. During this period Arrian wrote several works on military tactics, including Ektaxis kata Alan n. He also wrote a short account of a tour of inspection of the Black Sea coast in the traditional 'periplus' form (in Greek) addressed to the Emperor Hadrian, the Periplus Ponti Euxini or "Circumnavigation of the Black Sea". Arrian left Cappadocia shortly before the death of his patron Hadrian, in 138, and there is no evidence for any further public appointments until 145/6 when he was elected Archon at Athens, once the city's leading political post, but by this time an honorary one. It was here that he devoted himself to history, writing his most important work, the Anabasis Alexandri or "The Campaigns of Alexander". He also wrote the Indica, an account of the voyage by Alexander's fleet from India to the Persian Gulf under Nearchus. He also wrote a political history of the Greek world after Alexander, most of which is lost.' Arrian's history is a GREAT AND CLASSIC WORK which describes in intimate detail, the exploits of Alexander the Great, student of Aristotle and reader of Homer. By the age of sixteen, he had gained significant military experience but became estranged from his. Seller Inventory # 25926
