First edition of this work edited by Harless (originally Harles) who was a German classical scholar and bibliographer. He was an extremely prolific writer. His numerous editions of classical authors lack originality and critical judgment, but were valuable at the time because they summarised earlier scholarship for the benefit of the student. He is chiefly remembered for his work in connection with the great Bibliotheca Graeca of J. A. Fabricius, of which he published a new and revised edition (12 vols., 17901809, not quite completed) a task for which he was uniquely qualified. He also wrote much on the history and bibliography of Greek and Latin literature (Wikip.). Sylburg, whose notes are incorporated here, was another German classical scholar who lived about two centuries before. In 1591 he moved to Heidelberg, where he became librarian to the elector palatine. The Wechel series was continued by Hieronymus Commelinus (Jerome Commelin) of Heidelberg, for whom Sylburg edited Clement of Alexandria, Justin Martyr, the Etymologicum magnum, the Scriptores de re rustica, the Greek gnomic poets, Xenophon, Nonnus and other works. All Sylburgs editions show great critical power and indefatigable industry; the latter may well have caused his death (Wikip.). . 3 (Inventory #: LV2084)
