GESNER, JOHANNES MATTHIAS
Novus linguae et eruditionis Romanae thesaurus post Ro. Stephani et aliorum nuper etiam in Anglia.
Casp. Fritschii Vidvae et Bernh. Chr. Breitkopfii, Lipsiae, 1749. Folio, 4 volumes in 2, pp. [44], 1346 columns, [2], 1272 columns; [2], 1196 columns, [2], 1148 columns, [2], 292 columns (index); engraved frontis portrait, title-p. printed in red and black, sprinkled edges; occasional spots and stains but overall a very good, sound copy in full contemporary vellum, neatly lettered in ink on spines. Gesner (1691-1761), a classical scholar, was professor of rhetoric at Gottingen and was subsequently its librarian. "This is an improved edition of [Robert Estienne's] Thesaurus, and is a very valuable publication. It is magnificently published . The works of Gesner and Facciolatus are so comprehensive, and executed with such indefatigable industry, that it may not perhaps be too much to assert, that if every other book on the subject had perished, these two alone might have supplied all the materials for an excellent treatise on Latin synonymes" (Dibdin). Ebert 8244; Vancil, p. 98; Zaunmuller, 254.
