Item Description: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1570 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original publisher: ex Officina Hervagiana, per Eusebium Episcopium, anno salutis humanae 1570. Bookseller Inventory # 155242894

Item Description: Apud Gaasbekios, Lugd. Bat & Amstel., 1670. Duodecimo. [24], 288, [84] pp. Engraved title. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin, clasps intact. Excellent copy. A nice example of a late edition. Gaius Julius Hyginus (ca. 64 BC AD 17) was a Latin author, a pupil of the famous Cornelius Alexander Polyhistor, and a freedman of Caesar Augustus. He was by Augustus elected superintendent of the Palatine library according to Suetonius' De Grammaticis, 20.[1] It is not clear whether Hyginus was a native of Spain or of Alexandria. Suetonius remarks that he fell into great poverty in his old age, and was supported by the historian Clodius Licinus. Hyginus was a voluminous author: his works included topographical and biographical treatises, commentaries on Helvius Cinna and the poems of Virgil, and disquisitions on agriculture and bee-keeping. All these are lost. Under the name of Hyginus there are extant what are probably two sets of school notes abbreviating his treatises on mythology; one is a collection of Fabulae ("stories"), the other a "Poetical Astronomy". The lunar crater Hyginus and the minor planet 12155 Hyginus are named after him. [hhmm. Wikipedia]. Bookseller Inventory # kfk417
