"This is not only the most beautiful, but the most accurate and complete edition of Lucian that has ever been published: the editors were Hemsterhusius, J.M. Gesner, and Reitzius. The greater part of the first voulme was particularly the production of Hemsterhusius, and it contains a rich fund of the most curious and profound criticism relating to Lucian; the second and third volumes were chiefly by J. Reitzius; the fourth volume, published at Utrecht in 1746, and containg the "Lexicon Lucianeum", was compiled by Conrad Reitzius, the brother: Gesner had the care of the Latin version, which is a very excellent one, and accompanied with useful notes..."(Dibdin II:194). - Brunet III:1207 "Édition la plus estimée de cet auteur." - Graesse IV:278
