Item Description: Amsterdam (Amstelodami), Typis Ludovici Elzevirii, 1652., 1652. 24mo. 715,(5) p., engraved title. 19th century half calf. 13.5 cm (Ref: Willems 1152, note; Bergmann 2214; Rahir 3319; Schweiger 2,766; Ebert 17196; Brunet 4,709; Graesse 5,329) (Details: Back gilt, and divided in 7 compartments, in 4 of them gilt lozenges filled with tiny floral motives. Marbled endpapers. Uncut right and lower margin. Engraved title, depicting the playwright Plautus pointing with his left hand to a performance, in his right hand he holds a jester staff) (Condition: Binding slightly scuffed. Head of the spine very slightly damaged. Boards somewhat scratched and corners somewhat bumped) (Note: M. Accius Plautus, ca. 250-184 B.C., better known as Titus Maccius Plautus was a playwright of great talent, 'one of the highest type of dramatists, worthy to rank with Sophocles, for example, or Shakespeare'. (Rose,H.J. A handbook of Latin literature, London, 1967, p.40). 21 of his plays, the socalled 'fabulae Varronianae' survive more or less complete. His Vidularia survives only in mutilated fragments, and is not incorporated in this edition. This 1652 edition seems to be a reissue of the edition of 1630, which was produced by the Dutch scholar Johan Isaac Pontanus, 1561-1639. It was repeated in 1640 by the Blaeu Brothers, and in 1652 by Louis Elsevier, but only the text of the comedies, the short notes of Pontanus printed at the end were omitted. There exist however counterfeits of the Elsevier edition of 1652, and this book is one of them. This fake Elzevier edition was probably printed on a later date by Johan Blaeu. It has exactly the same original engraved (Elzevier) title, the same number of pages, and the same 5 pages at the end with a short biography of Plautus and testimonia. The only differences are the ornaments on the first and the last page, and the number of verses per page. Rahir supposes that Johan Blaeu or another printer, might have bought the copper plate of the engraved title of the 1652 edition, once used by the Amsterdam establishment of Lodewijk (Louis) Elzevier, at the sale of its material, after it had been closed down. If Rahir is right, Blaeu might have misused the good reputation of the Elzeviers, to sell his own product) (Provenance: A 19th century engraved armorial bookplate on the front pastedown: a seated fox, above his head a crown. The text reads 'Holland House'. Holland House was one of the first great houses built in Kensington in London. It was bought in 1768 by Henry Fox, First Baron Holland. This huge mansion was destroyed during the Blitz in 1940. On the verso of the front flyleaf in ballpoint the name 'Lennart Hakanson', 1939-1987, professor of Latin at the university of Uppsala) (Collation: A-2Y) (Photographs on request) 500 gr.

Item Description: Leiden (Lugd. Batavorum), Ex officina Hackiana, 1664., 1664. 8vo. (XVI),1154,(52 index) p. Calf 20.5 cm (Ref: STCN p.p. 840013841; Schweiger 2,766; Dibdin 2,312: 'Gronovius by the assistance of 6 ancient MSS. and his own sagacious conjectures, has improved the text in many places, and given some ingenious and successful explanations of difficult passages'; Moss 2,461/2; Fabricius/Ernesti 1,21; Neue Pauly, Supplement Band 2, Geschichte der antiken Texte, Darmstadt 2007, p. 477; Graesse 5,329; Ebert 17202) (Details: Gilt back with 5 raised bands. Engraved title. Commentary in 2 columns beneath the text) (Condition: Binding scuffed and scratched. Shield on the back gone. Paper of the front pastdown wrinkled. Titlepage cut out, and mounted on blank flyleaf expertly, with removal of the blank margins. Small hole in blank lower margin of the second leaf. Lower margin of the second half partly and very faintly waterstained) (Note: The 21 surviving comedies of the Roman playwright Titus Maccius Plautus, ca. 254-184 B.C., have never been out of fashion since the publication of the 'editio princeps' in 1472. Plautus' influence on world literature is huge. The comedies feature stock situations and characters from everyday life. 'Plautine comedy is inventive, exuberant, varied, full of rollicking eavesdropping scenes, lyrical meters, slapstick, and verbal fireworks.' Early editors, commentators and translators ransacked the plays for rhetorical and moral examples. Ever since the first post-classical performances at the end of the 15th century Plautus never left the stage. The Italian 'commedia erudita' and the popular improvisatory 'commedia dell'arte' developed through imitations of the Roman New Comedy. Probably best known is Carlo Goldoni's adaptation of the Menaechmi (1748) 'I duo gemelli veneziani' (The Venetian Twins). Spain saw the development of 'comedias elegíacas', Latin verse that incorporated Plautine passages into dialogue. Authors like Calderón adopted many New Comedy stage conventions to Spanish taste. In Germany the great dramatist Andreas Gryphius adapted the Miles Gloriosus. And in France Molière, the greatest comic playwright of his age, imitated Plautus in his Amphitryon and in l'Avare. English playwrights like Ben Johnson and Shakespeare reworked plays of Plautus. 'Plautine comedy provided Shakespeare with character and action throughout his career, beginning with direct imitation of the Menaechmi with the Comedy of Errors'. A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, The Merry Wives of Windsor, The Tempest, they all adapt themes, situations and persons of Plautus. During the Golden Age of the Netherlands P.C. Hooft wrote Warenar (1617), an adaptation of Plautus' Aulularia. Plautus enjoyes also a new modern life on the screen. Rodgers and Hart created the music for the Boys from Syracuse (1938). Big Business (1988), inspired by the Menaechmi, tells the story of 2 sets of female twins (Bette Midler & Lily Tomlin) separated at birth. Pseudolus and Miles Gloriosus can be found in the hilarious musical and film A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum (1962) (Source of the quotations: The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, s.v. Plautus) § At school Plautus was never in fashion. The plays were full of immorality, and Plautus' language was too indecent, and too difficult for young boys. Plautus was studied however widely in the 17th century at universities throughout Europe. Schweiger lists 37 editions of the Opera of Plautus for this (17th)century, 15 were published in Germany, 13 in the Netherlands, 5 in Geneva and 4 in France. Popular among scholars and students were the socalled 'Variorum editions'. They offered the 'textus receptus' which was widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. This Plautus edition was produced by the Dutch classicist of German origin Johann Friedrich Gronov, or Gronovius, 1611-1671. He was the successor of Heinsius at the University of.

Item Description: (Wittenberg), Apud Zachariam Schurerum (typis Johannis Gormanni), 1612., 1612. 4to. 2 volumes: (XVI,XXIV),1320,(122 index),(1 printer's mark)(1 blank) p. 19th cent. boards. 24 cm (Ref: VD17 1:043513Q. Schweiger p. 764/5: 'Gänzliche Umarbeitung seiner Ausg. (.) T.'s Commentar ist höchst schätzbar'. Dibdin 2,311: Taubmann 'has greatly contributed towards the restoration of the true text of Plautus'. Fabricius/Ernesti, Bibl. Lat. 1773, I,19/20: 'Praestantissimae ad intelligendum hunc Comicum sunt editiones Taubmannianae, (.) contextum pluribus locis exhibent meliorem, ac praeter luculentos commentarios, omnium, quique ante Plauto manus admoverant, industriam delibantes ac vincentes'; Brunet 4,708/09; Graesse 5,328; Ebert 17191) (Details: 19th cent. uniform black boards with red morocco letterpiece on the back. Printer's mark on the title, which depicts an intertwined snake, feather & laurel, with a soaring bird, a pigeon? on top, and is repeated at the end, with the addition 'Wittenbergae, typis Johannis Gormanni'. The motto reads: 'Simplicitas astu bene fermentata triumphat') (Condition: Binding very scuffed, worn at extremities. Paper on the boards & the backs partly worn away. Joints of the second volume cracking. Small inkstain on the upper edge of the first 100 pages. Title browned. Regularly old ink underlinings, occasional ink annotations by a German hand. Ownership entries on the front endpapers) (Note: The German humanist Friedrich Taubmann, 1565-1613, a man of humble origin, was 'Professor Poeseos' (Latin) at the University of Wittenberg from 1595. He was also an accomplished Neolatin poet. His favorite author (meum poeticum cor) was the Roman playwright Plautus, ca. 250-184 B.C. He considered his much critized first edition of Plautus of 1605 a disaster, and asked the publisher to destroy the remainder (2/3) of the copies printed, and to replace it by a revised second edition, which was indeed published in 1612. Taubmann was above all a compiler of the commentaries of others. He employed the Plautus text of Camerarius for his edition, and new material provided by the Flemish classical scholar Janus Gruterus, or in Dutch Jan Gruter, since 1602 Keeper of the Bibliotheca Palatina at Heidelberg. Gruter had bought from the sons of Joachim Camerarius (1500-1574) for his library 2 manuscripts, the 'codex vetus' and 'codex decurtatus', because he realized more than Camerarius himself the exceptional worth of both manuscripts. Taubmann received valuable help from the Keeper, who collated the Palatine manuscripts, and made good use of them in his second edition. 'In der That beruht der Werth der Taubmann'schen Edition in dem ausserordentlichen Reichthume der commentatorischen Parallelen; nach dieser Hinsicht mag sie heute noch mehr als geschichtliche Aufmerksamkeit beanspruchen. Die zweite Ausgabe war textlich viel sorgsamer und übertraf in Correctheit, Typenwahl und Ausstattung die über alle Maassen liederliche erste erklecklich' (ADB 37,433-440). This second edition of 1612 receives also much praise from Schweiger, Dibdin and Fabricius/Ernesti. At the end are added 2 treatises, the first by J. Camerarius 'De Fabulis Plautinis' and the second by J.C. Scaliger 'De carminibus Comicis'. Taubmann died the year after the appearance of this great edition, leaving a wife and 5 young children. His edition's fame survived him) (Provenance: On the front flyleaf: 'Laurenz Lersch, 1835'. Johann Heinrich Laurenz Lersch, 1811-1849, was a German archaeologist and classical philologist. He has a lemma in Wikipedia § Also the name of 'Paul Weiland stud. phil. 1883') (Collation: a-b4, 2)(-4)(4; A-4Z4; a-4t4, 4u2) (Photographs on request) (Heavy set, may require extra shipping costs) 3000 gr.

Item Description: [Wittenberg?], gedruckt von Wolfgang Meissner für Zacharias Schurer [Schürer] 1605., 1605. 4°. [4] Bll., VIII, 1306 [recte 1304], [72] S. Blindgeprägter Schweinslederband über Pappe auf 4 Bünden, Deckel mit 3 Rollen und Blindlinien kassettiert, Querriegel und Platten als Mittelstück. Ein Gelenk restauriert, kl. Fehlstellen (Ecken) farblich angepaßt ergänzt. Wenige Wurmlöcher am Deckel. Teils etwas gebräunt, viele farbige Unterstreichungen (offensichtlich älter). Die Platten mit Judith, Schwert und Haupt(?) des Holofernes sowie mit Lucretia (und ihrer Selbsttötung); die Frauengestalten im zeitgenössischen Kostüm. Beide Darstellungen dat. '1560' und monogrammiert 'H.H.'. Die Querriegel des Vorderdeckels monogrammiert 'I.F.M.' und datiert '1605'. Die mittlere Rolle mit kl., wiederholten Portraits der Erasmus von Rotterdam, Jan Hus, Martin Luther und Philipp Melanchthon. Einband aus Wittenberg? - Das Exemplar später dann in der Roloffschen Bibliothek, entsprechendes Exlibris am Spiegel und hs. Besitzvermerk von 1734 am Vorsatz. Ein weiteres gestochenes Exlibris (Kalligraphie, Monogramm?) von mir nicht entschlüsselt. Ein hs. Besitzeintrag 'Stryk'(?) am Titel. Am Ende große Druckermarke von Wolfgang Meissner. - Der Taubmann'schen Bearbeitung war keine positive Aufnahme beschieden, er selbst veranlaßte den Verleger, die Restauflage (2/3 der Gesamtauflage) einzustampfen (vgl. ADB XXXVII.437). Dagegen Schweiger S. 764: "mit vielen eigenen, werthvollen Anmerkgg. ausgestattet. [.] - Seltne Ausg.". Die Seite 747 weist entgegen Schweiger und Graesse V.328 keinen Zwischentitel(?) aus (mir unklar, nach Bogenzählung und Paginierung vollständig). Bookseller Inventory # 35918AB

Item Description: Schurer, Wittenberg, 1621. Volume in 4° antico legato in pergamena con piccole ali (mende e restauri), sguardie (scritte a pennino), frontespizio con bella marca tipografica, 25 carte, 1557 pp., 62 ulteriori carte d'indici. Le venti commedie di Plauto analizzate, notulate, glossate ed interlineate dai due più accreditati studiosi del tempo in un'edizione assolutamente esaustiva. La ricerca filologica è minuziosa quanto dotta, il riscontro ricercato nei manoscritti più attenti ed attendibili è costante. Un Plauto riscoperto e messo in nuova splendida luce, una lettura entusiasmante. Poche le mende da sottolineare: tracce d'umidità alle prime carte, segno chiaro di gora al margine superiore interno della seconda parte del volume più incisivo sulle ultime 150 carte, qualche sporadicissima arrossatura, minime tracce di tarlo ai primi ed ultimi fogli (solo nel margine bianco), mancanza del capitello superiore (cucitura allentata). Bella l'impressione e l'impaginazione, forte, chiara e frusciante la carta. Di assoluto prestigio ed importanza, notevole. Bookseller Inventory # 7220
