        Luciani Samosatensis Opera

      Lipsiae - In Aedibus B. G. Teubneri, 1901. Lipsiae - In Aedibus B. G. Teubneri, 1901 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The works of Lucian of Samosata, edited by Karl Jacobitz. Complete in three volumes. In Greek with Latin title pages and preface. Lucian of Samosata (c. AD 125 after AD 180) was a rhetorician and satirist who wrote in the Greek language. He is noted for his witty and scoffing nature. Although he wrote solely in Greek, he was ethnically Syrian. Lucian almost certainly did not write all of the more than eighty works attributed to him declamations, essays both laudatory and sarcastic, satiric epigrams, and comic dialogues and symposia with a satirical cast, studded with quotations in alarming contexts and allusions set in an unusual light, designed to be surprising and provocative. His name added lustre to any entertaining and sarcastic essay: over 150 surviving manuscripts attest to his continued popularity. The first printed edition of a selection of his works was issued at Florence in 1499. His best known works are A True Story (a romance, patently not true at all, which he admits in his introduction to the story), and Dialogues of the Gods and Dialogues of the Dead. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper ofvolume II. Binder's label to rear pastedown of two volumes, of W. C. Henderson and Son, St Andrews. Condition: In half calf bindings with cloth covered boards. Externally, slight wear and bumpingto extremities. One rear board detached and one jointtender. Twobackstrips lifting. Two hinges strained.
