About this Item: Oxonii Oxford E Theatro Sheldoniano imprensis Jacobi Fletcher. Londini: apud C. Rivington J. & P. Knapton R. Manby J. Nourse; & Gul. Thurlbourn Cantab, 1741. 8vo in 4s, (195x1223mm), [8],349,[19]p. engraved frontispiece portrait by M Burg, title page in red and black; a tear in the foremargin of N1 (without loss), otherwise internally a clean and crisp copy. Contemporary calf, rubbed, split at the joints and worn at the corner tips, a small piece of leather inlaid, by way of repair, on the front cover, but a much better copy than it sounds! (Morrison, Bibliography of editions, translations, and commentary on Xenophon's Socratic writings 502). The first edition of B. Simpson's edition of Zehonophon's Memorabilia, including the 'apology,' and with J. Leunclavius' Latin translation. The Greek text is printed in the top half of the page in what, to this cataloguer's untutored eye, appears to be the Fell Type Double Pica Greek capitals and Great Primer Greek No 1; being Robert Granjon's Paragon Greek cut for Plantin in 1565, with additions and replacements cut for John Fell by De Walpergen; together with one of the three-line Pica Capitals used as an initial letter at the start of Liber primus. (Morison, `Fell types' pp. 98-103, 108) The Latin translation is printed below the Greek, there are two attractive wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces, and the final verso carries a list of publisher's titles.

About this Item: Excudebat Henricus Middletonus, London, 1580. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut title vignette, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Later tree calf in a contemporary style, spine with raised bands and "Biblia Sacra" in gilt; very narrow strip cut away from top of title page affecting manuscript ownership signature. Lacking the final two parts as well as the separate title pages for the second through fourth individual parts. Contemporary annotations. First edition of the first complete Latin Bible printed in England, one of five imprints of the 1580 edition. The Latin translation from the Hebrew and Syriac was the work of Immanuel Tremellius (1510-1580), an Italian Jewish convert, first to Catholicism, then to Protenstantism. In 1547 he was invited to England by Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556), the Archbishop of Canterbury. In 1549 he succeeded Paul Fagius as Regius professor of Hebrew at Cambridge. He was assisted by Franciscus Junius (the Elder) (1545-1602), his son-in-law. Tremellius' translation first appeared in 1569 in Geneva, and portions relating to the Old Testament were published at Franfurt between 1575 and 1579. He here improved on the work of Thomas Berthelet's 1535 partial printing of the Vulgate to such an extent that he ultimately exerted considerable influence in England and on the Continent ("Although his version was far from faultless, it evinced very thorough scholarship, and for long, both in England and on the continent, was adopted by the reformers as the most accurate Latin rendering. With some alterations it even received the sanction of the universities of Douai and Louvain"; see ODNB). STC 2056.8. Seller Inventory # 14001
