"Iulii Pollucis onomasticon, hoc est instructissimum rerum et synonymorum dictionarium, nunc primum Latinitate donatum, Rodolopho Gualthero Tigurino interprete"
Basileae: Robertum Winter. 1541. "8vo, pp. 479, [15]; woodcut initials, printer's device on colophon; contemporary full vellum; vellum a little soiled and with some cracking along the upper joint; top black margin of title page clipped and infilled; all else very good. With a 1734 manuscript monastery ex-libris at the bottom of the title page. Pollux, the Greek grammarian and Sophist from Naucratis in Egypt, flourished in the second century A.D. The Onomasticon, the only work of his which survives, ""is a Greek dictionary in ten books...arranged not alphabetically, but according to subject matter. Though mainly a dictionary of synonyms and phrases, chiefly intended to furnish the reader with the Attic names for individual things, it supplies much rare and valuable information on many points of classical antiquity [and] numerous fragments of writers now lost"" (EB-11). Adams P1790; BM-STC German, p. 709; Vancil, p. 195."
