Frankfurt, Ex Officina Paltheniana sumtibus heredum Petri Fischeri, 1603. - 8vo. 276 unnumbered leaves. 18th century red morocco. 19.5 cm (Ref: VD17 12:129968D; Brunet 4,833; Ebert 17828; Graesse 5,421) (Details: Back elaborately gilt with floral motives in the compartments, and with 5 raised bands; covers with an elaborate wide gilt floral border; inside gilt dentelles; edges of the boards and of the book gilt; marbled endpapers; woodcut printer's mark on title, depicting a winged stag that jumps over an hourglass, on its back a man, who holds in his left hand a coiling serpent, and in his right a sickel, and above their head the word 'tempus'; Greek and Latin text printed in double column) (Condition: The back is restored in a most tasteful and skillful way, hardly visible for the naked eye; some scratches on the covers, a bigger one on the frontcover; 2 small wormholes in lower margin of the first 75 leaves; partly with browning paper, else a very handsome copy) (Note: Aemilius Portus, 1550-1614, was a famous classical philologist of Greek-Italian descent. His father came from Crete to Italy to teach Greek. Aemilius was appointed professor of Greek at the University of Heidelberg in 1596. He published a great number of works, translations, commentaries and editions of Aristophanes, Thucydides, Xenophon, Dionysius Halicarnessensis, Homer. He even found time to do lexicographic work. In 1603 he published a Dictionarium Ionicum graecolatinum and a Dictionarium Doricum graecolatinum, and in 1606 a lexicon Pindaricum. No wonder that his works show signs of haste. Nevertheless, his editions and translations into Latin form a substantial progress compared to preceding editions.
