However, he also published a work entitled 'De Emendatione Temporum', a work which gave direction to organizing ancient chronology. This book covers histories of ancient kingdoms - Persia, Babylon, Egypt, Jews - and discusses their processes of chronological history keeping.According to "Printing and Mind of Man","The De Emendatione Temporumrevolutionized ancient chronology; it showed that ancient history was not restricted to that of the Greeks and Romans, but also involved that of the Persians, Babylonians and Egyptians, and that of the Jews, hitherto treated as sacred history."This 1629 Geneva edition is complete with charts and tables, dating systems, and even grammar tables.Item number: #12102Price: $950SCALIGER, Joseph JustusIosephi Scaligeri iuli Caesaris F. opus de emendatione temporum.Genevae : Typis Roverianis, 1629.Details: · Collation: Complete with all pageso [16], LII, [4], 784, [48], 59, [1]· References: PMM 98; · Language: Latin· Binding: Leather; tight & secure· Size: ~13.75in X 9.25in (34.5cm x 23.5cm)· Very rare and desirable with auction records and price comparisons at over $2,000Our Guarantee:Very Fast.
