Modern morocco, gilt-stamped lettering and ornament on spine; 16mo (128x63mm); pp. [12], 338, [19] (index). Early Elzevir edition of Curtius Rufus' history of Alexander the Great, with engraved title-page of Alexander the Great riding roughshod over a fallen enemy, folding map of Macedonia, woodcut medallion portrait, and full-page plate of the Temple of Jupiter. Edmund Goldsmid call this the third printing, with 6 preliminary leaves (as usual), 11-leaf index (rather than 12), and the Temple of Jupiter plate on p. 75 (rather than 81). Binding is fine. Early hand-colored outlines to map; early ownership signature; faint dampstain to top edges of map and prelims; closed tear on last leaf. Graesse II:311; Brunet II:450; Rosenbach 33:117; Willems 381; Dibdin II:374. Curtius Rufus is believed to have written his life of Alexander during the reign of Claudius, using Clitarchus as his chief source. In it, "the career of the great Macedonian is regarded as a series of brilliant and romantic adventures" (Peck, 449). This printing is one of Bonaventura and Abraham Elzevir's famed pocket editions of Latin classics, initiated in 1629 during an expansion of the press. The aim was to ensure wide circulation of accurate texts for everyday use, and the books were printed with engraved title-pages, narrow margins, and a distinctive font of type, cut by Christoffel van Dijck, whose influence on subsequent typographers endured well into the 19th century. First published in Rome in 1470 and edited later by Erasmus in 1518; this edition with additional notes by Janus Rutgersius. N° de ref. de la librería D12796
