Brunet summed this edition, saying; "Edition tres-estimee." And Dibdin echoes it: "This is the celebrated quarto variorum edition . . . by Snakenburg. . . . Th text is formed according to the frist edit. of Freinshem." Many hands and minds brought about this praise: "commentariis ac notis perpetuis Fr. Modii, V. Acidalii, T. Popmae, Joh. Freinshemii, Joh. Schefferi, Christoph. Cellarii, Nic. Heinsii. Selectis & excerptis Ph. Rubenii, J. Rutgersii ... [etc.] itemque Jac. Perizonii vindiciis, & aliorum observationibus, auctioribusque indicibus. Curavit & digessit Henricus Snakenburg."
The book is very heavy and will require extra shipping.
Brunet, II, 450l Graesse, II, 311/312; Dibdin II, 376; Schweiger, II,322 (long note). Contemporary mottled calf, worn, covers detached, spines worn. Ex-library with bookplates, call numbers in white on spines, charge pockets at rear. No stamps. Foxing, damp staining. Priced for it faults, but in our estimation something of a bargain.
