Opera graece et latine quae extant.
Lutetiae Parisiorum: Typis Regiis Tall folio (32.7 cm, 12.9"). [28], 854, 74 (lacking 75–79 [index]) pp. (some pagination erratic; 823/24 repeated).. 1641 Works of the second-century Greek theologian Clement of Alexandria (ca. 150–215), reissued from the 1616 Patius printing and here handsomely printed by the French Royal Press. This edition was apparently also issued with the title-page in a different state, sporting the imprint as "Apud Matthaeum Guillemot, via Iacobaea, sub signo Bibliothecae."Set forth is Heinsius's edition of the text, with Greek and Latin in parallel columns, additionally offering the earlier revisions and alternate readings by Friedrich Sylburg; the title-page is printed in red and black, with an impressive sailing ship publisher's device, while the main text pages are ornamented with head- and tailpieces and decorative capitals.Provenance: Title-page with inked inscription "J.D. Michaeli," presumably Orientalist, biblical scholar, and Göttingen professor Johann David Michaelis (1717–91). Later manuscript notes as below in the hand of the early 19th-century scholar August Neander; his library sold to the Colgate (Rochester Crozer) Divinity School, properly deaccessioned.Evidence of readership: Three pages completely covered in Neander's hand with annotations in Greek and Latin, tipped in at the front; pencilled marks of emphasis, inked underlining, and inked marginal annotations in what appear to be two different early hands. Period-style quarter speckled calf and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label, all edges red; final three index leaves (only) lacking. Trimmed closely, in some instances touching headers and often the marginalia; approximately 30 leaves with a finger's-breadth portion of upper edge chewed, affecting headers but never text; several leaves with repaired tears or reinforced margins; one leaf with flaw in outer margin touching three letters. Markings as above; occasional small areas of light staining or inkblots, one small burn hole, and two pages with dripped red wax. => A solid and very readable copy in an attractive recent binding, with provenance worthy of note.
