Bibliotheca Cyprianica, sive Catalogus Librorum - (CYPRIAN, Ernst Salomon) - 1733. 
15 p.l., 984 pp.,  leaves of index. Thick 8vo, cont. half-sheep & paste-paper boards. Leipzig: G.M. Knoch, 1733. The catalogue of the vast library of Cyprian (1673-1745), "one of the last important and influential representatives of the Lutheran orthodoxy."-N.D.B. He was librarian of the Ducal Library at Gotha, did much to improve it, and published a catalogue of its MSS. His library was certainly one of the most important "Gelehrtenbibliotheken" of his time; a considerable portion of it was, of course, devoted to theology - the title-page especially recommends it to the student of theology and ecclesiastical history - and the subject index of theological works alone occupies 29 pp., as opposed to that of all other subjects which only takes up 20 pp. This is the second edition of the catalogue, much enlarged with items acquired since the publication of the first edition (Gotha: 1726). The 1747 Gotha edition is no doubt the sale catalogue, published after Cyprian's death. At the end, on nine pages, we find the bibliography of Cyprian's forty-nine publications. Nice copy. ? A.D.B., Vol. 4, pp. 667-69. Loh, Vol. II, p. 17. Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 238.
