Ignatius of Antioch, Saint: (Smith, Thomas, & John Pearson, eds.:) Epistolae genuinae, juxta exemplum Mediceum denuo recensitae [...] accedunt acta genuina martyrii S. Ignatii, epistola S. Polycarpi ad Philippenses, et Smyrnensis ecclesiae epistola de S. Polycarpi martyrio; cum veteribus latinis versionibus, & annotationibus Thomae Smithi. Oxonii [Oxford] e Theatro Sheldoniano 1709. First edition thus. 4to., pp. [xiv] 117 [iii]. Text in double column, Greek and Latin. Horizontal tear in one leaf partly through one line of text (no loss), some light spotting. Contemporary calf, panelled in blind, plainly rebacked and corners repaired, old leather rather scratched, red morocco label, old endpapers preserved. Small old ownership inscription of John Maddocks(?) to title-page, one leaf with a long manuscript note in an old hand. The letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch, second bishop after St. Peter of Rome; the edition contains notes by John Pearson (1613-1686), "probably the ablest scholar and best systematic theologian among Englishmen of the seventeenth century" (CDNB), author also of an important defence of the authenticity of Ignatius's letters (1672). Thomas Smith, editor (1638-1710), sometime fellow of Magdalen College Oxford, was librarian of the Cottonian library. Dibdin calls it "A very excellent edition; with some new and inedited notes of Pearson." Dibdin (4th edn.) I 178.   Ref: 39548  show full image..

Isocrates: Orationes et Epistolae. Parisiis [Paris]: Apud Sebastianum Chappelet, 1631. 8vo., pp. [vi] 66 [vi] 902 [xlii]. Title page in red and black. Intermittent marginal worming, for a stretch of c. 20 leaves becoming a small trail touching one or two characters, browned, some spotting and marginal dampstaining, marginal repairs to title and following leaf (covering old inscriptions), woodcut title vignette crudely coloured in red. Early vellum boards, long sides overlapping, title inked to spine in a later hand, spine a bit darkened. The second of two notably early editions of an interlinear translation of Isocrates printed by Chappelet, the first in 1621, with this one newly edited by A. Pezier. Both are rare, with COPAC listing this edition in the BL and Newcastle only (and CCFr adding 4 locations in France), and the 1621 in those two and Cambridge (with 2 locations in CCFr).

Isocrates: Scripta, quaequidem nunc extant, omnia, Graecolatina, postremo recognita. Basileae [Basel]: Typis Conradi Waldkirchii, 1613. 8vo., pp. [xvi] 927 [lix]. Woodcut device to title, text in Greek and Latin on facing pages, dampmark to upper corner, intermittent browning (mostly light). Early vellum boards, long sides overlapping, title inked to spine, edges sprinkled blue, a few small stains. Early ownership signature to title: 'Christianus Bartholotti ab Henne(?)'. An uncommon reprint of an edition of the Greek rhetorician Isocrates (one of the 10 'Attic Orators') that Waldkirch first published in 1602. Both Waldkirch printings are scarce; COPAC records four locations for the 1613 (Oxford, University of London, Manchester and the BL) and three for the 1602 (Nat. Lib. Scotland, Oxford, and Glasgow). The Latin translation is by Hieronymus Wolf. Schweiger I 181.   Ref: 25093
