Item Description: Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex Officina Joannis du Vivié, 1691., 1691. 4to. (XXXII),766,(26) p., frontispiece. Vellum 23.5 cm (Ref: Brunet 6, no. 29063; Goldsmiths'-Kress, library of economic literature 02895,1) (Details: 6 thongs laced through joints; short title in ink on the back. Frontispiece designed and executed (fecit) by the Dutch illustrator Anthony van Zylvelt (died ca. 1695). Depicted is a gathering of classical scholars behind a long table. Left at the head of the table is seated Gronovius himself, proudly fingering some coins. At the right sits Joseph Justus Scaliger, in front sits Justus Lipsius. Behind the tables are standing 22 other 'lesser' scholars. On the table is written: 'centesimae usurae', in Roman law, the highest rate of interest, amounting to 12 percent a year; and 'foenus unciarium', in the law of the XII tables this was a rate of interest of 1/12, the highest legal interest in the early republic. Both terms refer to a book on interest in antiquity which Gronovius had published in 1661. In the background on the wall a frame with the text: 'Ioannis Frederici Gronovii, Pecunia Vetus'. Woodcut printer's device on the title, motto: 'Ab Uno vita') (Condition: Vellum soiled; faint stain on frontcover) (Note: The Dutch classicist of German origin Johann Friedrich Gronov, or Gronovius, 1611-1671, was the successor of Daniel Heinsius at the University of Leiden. He was influenced by Vossius, Grotius, Heinsius and Scriverius. His editions mark an epoch in the study of Livy, of Seneca, Tacitus & Gellius. His interest in textual criticism of Latin poetry was due to the discovery of the Florentine MS of the tragedies of Seneca. In his riper years 'the acumen exhibited in his handling of prose is also exemplified in his treatment of the text of poets such as Phaedrus and Martial, Seneca and Statius'. (Sandys, History of Classical Scholarship, 2,321) Gronovius had more interests than editing, commenting and textual criticism. During his academic career he published also important works on numismatics and on money in the ancient world. In 1643 he published 'Commentarius de sestertiis', in 1656 the first edition of 'De Sestertiis, seu subsecivorum pecuniae veteris Graecae & Romanae libri IV', and in 1661 'De centesimis usuris et foenere unciario'. In the preface of this book on offer, the son of J.F. Gronovius, Jacob, who himself was also professor of Greek at Leiden (1645-1716), tells his readers that he collected and edited these works of his father at the request of the publisher for a second edition. This included also the short treatises on numerical divisions, weights & measures of the late and obscure antique authors Maecianus and Balbus Mensor, which his father had edited previously. Jacob Gronovius added some small unpublished works of his father, inter alia on the 'Hyperpyron' (superrefined), a devaluated gold coin, which was introduced in 1092 by the Byzantine emperor Alexius Comnenus (1056-1118). Jacob included also a letter of the French scholar Salmasius to his father, and an edition made by his father of a work of the same Byzantine emperor, Alexius Comnenus, the 'Vetus et novum rationarium', which he couldnot publish, due to illness. This Byzantine treatise contains an inventory of the revenues of the State, and was later published by the French scholar Montfaucon in Paris in 1688. We add also a 4-page manuscript which we found loosely inserted into this book. It is entitled 'De pecunia veteri Romanorum', and seems to consist of college notes. The hand is 18th century, and is of a Dutchman, for he mentions somewhere 'stuferus', which is a Dutch coin, een 'stuiver', value 5 cents. In the margins of the manuscript are written in ink occasional scholarly remarks, also made by a Dutchman, but in the 20th century) (Collation: *-4*4; A-5G4) (Photographs on request) 1500 gr.
