Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1827 edition. Excerpt: ...at Milan in 1498, 4to. of which book, and of the ensuing edition (about 1500) a full notice will be found been carefully published from a collation of MSS. the editor has been censured by Barthius (in Stat. v. viii. p. 1585) and Heyne, for occasionally corrupting the text, from some ancient scholiast on Lycophron, Homer, Apollonius, and Diodorus: in some places, however, judicious readings are introduced.

Lat. vol. ii. p. 467. The reprint of this edition at Amsterdam in 1709, 8vo. by Janson ab Almeloven, containing the various readings of Reinesius and Vander Linden, with an excellent edition, is called by Harwood " the best." The readings from an old Vatican MS. furnished by Ernesti, at the end of this edition, are reprinted by Bernholdus; as well as the various readings from the edition of Gabriel Humelberg, published at Zurich, in 1542, 4to: --which latter, up to the period of its publication, is considered to be the best edition--and was in fact the basis of Lister's.
