VIRGIL - P. VIRGILIUS MARONIS. - [IN A LOVELY CONTEMPORARY DATED BINDING]
Opera Omnia. : Bucolica, Georgica, Aeneis; Ciris et Culex: Cum Commentario Frid. Taubmanni. Curate & edente Christiano Taubmanno Frid. F. Additi sunt Indices necessari.
(Wittenberg), Zacharias Schurerus, 1618. 4to. Bound in a lovely, charming contemporary 3/4 pigskin binding, richly blindtamped to boards - undoubtedly the book's first binding. The binding is dated in the front board - 1620 - and is with the initials of the the original owner "CFRH", namely Christian Frideric Reich(h)elm from Halle in Saxony, who has written his full name and acquisition details to the title-page, stating that the book was bought by him in 1620 (same year as it was bound) and the price that he paid for it. A bit of wear to extremities, but all in all very nice. Woodcut title-vignettes to all three title-pages. A few neat underlinings in the text. A very nice and clean copy with only mild occasional brownspotting.

In fact, the two were almost exact contemporaries, Reichmann having been born five years after Taubmann, who died one year after Reichmann. Generally speaking, the two had much in common. The present work was made by the then only 21-year-old jurist and is among his earliest works.Christian Friedrich Re … [Click Below for Full Description]
