Stephani, Roberti. [Robert Estienne]
Lexicographorum Principis Thesaurus Linguae Latinae in IV. Tomos Divisus.
Typis & Impensis E. & J.R. Thurnisiorum, Basileae. Rare 1740 edition of Robert Estienne's "greatest monument of Latin scholarship", his Thesaurus Linguae Latinae. Folio, four volumes bound in full vellum with spine labels decorated and titled in gilt, woodcut printer's device portrait of Estienne to each title page. In very good condition. One of the foremost printers of his time, Robert Estienne was asked to either compile a dictionary from the best Latin authors or make one himself; in 1531 he published Thesaurus linguae latinae, which is considered by many scholars to be the foundation of modern Latin lexicography. Moreover, this dictionary made Estienne the "father of French lexicography". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
