2 vols., folio, pp. [viii] 683 [i]; [ii] 687-1388 178 [x] + 1 folding plate. Half-title to each volume, to vol. I. an engraved title and engraved frontispiece with Amsterdam coat of arms, vol.I title page in red and black, woodcut initials, parallel Greek and Latin texts. Fold-out plate of coins before p.1027 in vol. II. The first page of text in each volume has a portion of its fore-edge margin excised, seemingly to remove ms. Occasional faint staining to fore-edge margins, a few wax spots, upper half of r.f.e.p. excised. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum, titles inked to spines, edges sprinkled red. Spines a little darkened, slightly grubby with a few small stains but a very good set. To the front of each volume a partially erased ownership inscription dated 1837. An interesting and important edition of the 2nd-century AD Greek thesaurus of Iulius Pollux, which had been begun and abandoned by Jean-Henri Lederlin (1672-1737). His replacement as editor, Tiberius Hemsterhuys (1685-1766), professor at Amsterdam, has "the honour of reviving the study of Greek in the Netherlands" (Sandys). For this edition he wrote for advice to Richard Bentley, the expert on Greek metre, but received his suggestions after the book went to press. Bentley later sent a long letter giving corrections to the texts of the fragments of comedy as found here in book 10. "So deep was [Hemsterhuys's] distress that he determined to abandon Greek for ever, and for two months did not dare to open a Greek book" (ibid.) Pollux is a source of information on many subjects, including theatre, the Athenian constitution, and the thirty-three terms of abuse for a tax-collector. The text survived only in interpolated copies of an early interpolated epitome. Schweiger I 270: "Gute Ausg." Sandys II 449; Hoffmann III, 262. N° de ref. de la librería 50152
