Notes commenting upon the writings of Seneca the Younger (BCE 4 - 65 CE) & Seneca the Elder (BCE 54 - c. 39 CE) by German classical scholar Gronovius (1611-1671). This little volume joins the 2nd edition of the Elzeviers' three-volume series of the works of the Senecas, also printed 1649; Gronovius's notes did not appear with the first Elzevier edition from 1640 (as per Willems, no. 664 and 672).

Leather shows significant wear, rubbed to edges and covers, with insect damage to back cover. Spine square. Binding sound. Marbled endpapers.

Item Description: Amsterdam (Amsterlodami), Apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios, 1658., 1658. 12mo. (XXIV),490,(25 index),(1 blank) p. Overlapping vellum 14 cm (Ref: Willems 1228; Berghman 1280; Rahir 1257; Copinger 1974; Schweiger 2,912) (Details: 6 thongs laced through the joints. Woodcut printer's mark of Louis and Daniel Elzevier on the title, depicting Minerva under an olive tree. She holds a banner with the motto: 'Ne extra oleas', to be understood as 'Stay within the bounds of wisdom'. The Amsterdam Elseviers Louis and Daniel Elsevier produced more than 600 editions, and 256 of them have this motto 'ne extra oleas'. It seems more or less the equivalent of the printer's mark (a philosopher under an olive tree) and the motto of the famous French scholar/printer Robertus Stephanus 'noli altum sapere', 'Be not high-minded'. Stephanus' printer's mark and motto clearly inspired the Elseviers. (See for the motto and its sources ((www))jstor.org/stable/289286?seq=6#page_scan_tab_contents) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly worn) (Note: The classical scholar of German descent Johann Friedrich Gronov (1611-1671), or Johannes Fredericus Gronovius, was the successor of Heinsius at the University of Leiden, and was influenced by Vossius, Grotius, Heinsius & Scriverius. His editions mark an epoch in the study of Livy, of Seneca, Tacitus & Gellius. The pages 1-351 contain Gronovius' notes on the Dialogues, the Letters, Quaestiones Naturales, and the Apocolocyntosis, of the Roman author, statesman and Stoic philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca, ca. 4 B.C. - 65 A.D. Pages 352-492 contain Gronovius' notes on the Suasoriae and Controversiae of Seneca's father, the rhetor Marcus Annaeus Seneca, ca. 55 - ca. 39 A.D., also known as Seneca Maior or Seneca Pater. § A year later, in 1659, the Elzevier brothers published a reissue of Gronovius' edition of the Opera Omnia of Seneca. (Willems 1251) The Opera Omnia and the Notae were first published in 1648 in Leiden. The volumes of 1648 and 1658, containing the Notae, were published separately, and are often added as volume 4 to these 3 volume sets) (Provenance: On the front pastedown in pencil: 'J. v. Dijck') (Collation: *12, A-X12, Y6 (leaf Y6 verso blank) ) (Photographs on request) 500 gr. Bookseller Inventory # 120161
