Historia Bibliothecae Fabricianae - (FABRICIUS, Johann) - 1717. 
Titles in red & black. Six vols. 4to, cont. vellum over boards (a few bindings a little warped). WolfenbÃ¼ttel: 1717-18-19-21-22-24. First edition of this catalogue which rarely appears on the market. Fabricius (1644-1729), was a leading classical philologist and inspector of the schools of the Duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg. This is "a biobibliographical dictionary. It is a roughly classified list of books owned by Johannes Fabricius, with brief but very valuable accounts of the life and writings of the various authors. Since larger and more recent reference works often do not mention these authors, who were chiefly minor sixteenth- and seventeenth-century scholars, Fabricius is likely to give helpful information. Fabricius was obviously more interested in giving this information than in making a catalogue of his library, for the Historia does not claim to be a complete catalogue."ÂTaylor, Book Catalogues, p. 7Â(& see pp. 11, 108, 186, & 204). Minor browning but a fine set. Brunet, II. 1154Â"Cet ouvrage, travaillÃ© avec soin et qu'on a souvent citÃ©."
