IVLII SOLINI POLYHISTOR. CUM INDICE SUMMATIM OMNIA COMPLECTENTE. [bound with:] Mela, Pomponius: POMPONII MELAE GEOGRAPHIAE, LIBRI TRES
Vienna: Johann Singriener for Lukas Alantse, 1520. [8],151,[32]pp.; [56] leaves. Contemporary green-stained vellum. Some light wear and soiling, ties lacking. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good, in unsophisticated original condition. A contemporary sammelband containing a pair of works by two important early geographers. Solinus (ca. 250 A.D.) was a Roman geographer of some repute. His POLYHISTOR... was first published by Nicholas Jenson in Venice in 1473. Mela was the earliest Roman geographer, writing around 43 A.D. Both works have extensive indexes. Only four copies of either title are located by VD16 online. An interesting and handsome volume combining the two most important geographical sources of the ancient world. VD16 S6965, M2312.
