Josephus, Flavius: (Gelenius, Sigismund, ed.:) Opera quae exstant, nempe. Geneuae [Geneva]: Jacobum Crispinum, 1634. Folio, pp. [viii], 1102, [xxviii]. Slightly toned, a little marginal worming to first few quires, blot from hot wax to p.610 affecting a couple of words and slightly marking the preceeding page, small marginal inkstain to several leaves at rear. Tan calf, gilt spine and borders. Rebacked retaining original spine, boards scratched with a little surface loss suggesting tape removal, a few worm holes to upper board, edges and corners worn, upper hinge neatly repaired. Ownership inscription of M.D. Macleod, The University, Southampton in pink ink to f.f.e.p.. Much older ink inscription of '[Glo?]espin' to front pastedown. The third Geneva printing of the second major edition of Josephus in Greek - the editio princeps appeared in 1544 and was followed by a 1591 Geneva edition reusing earlier Latin translations. There was also a printing in 1611; this is the last and by some accounts least accurate of the three, although it held its place until the next major editions appeared in the 1690s.   Ref: 46164

Josephus, Flavius: (Hudson, John; Havercamp, Sigebert, ed.:) Quae reperiri potuerunt, opera omnia Graece et Latine, cum notis & nova versione. [...] Amstelaedami, Lugd. Bat., Ultrajecti [Amsterdam, Leiden, Utrecht]: Apud R. & G. Wetstenios, Sam. Luc 1726. 2 vols., folio, pp. [viii] 28 [xxviii] 982; [ii] 520, 481 [lxiii] + additional engraved title to vol. I, 2 numismatic plates, and 1 folding chart. Half-title to each volume, vol. I title-page in red and black, parallel Greek and Latin texts, woodcut initials. Sporadic small inkspots and scorches, a few certain leaves lightly toned suggesting occasional use of inferior paper but generally bright within. Contemporary tan calf, rebacked with heavily gilt spines retained, 2 brown morrocco labels to each spine. Title labels cracking with small losses, occasional light marks and scratches, small loss to headcap vol. II, vol. I corners fraying with the lower 2 slightly bumped. A handsome set. To each volume's front paste-down, the armorial bookplate of John Putland with '1730' added in sepia ink. In addition vol. I has a tiny note, '2 vols. coll. & perf. FCB, Jany. 1848', at the very top of the front paste-down, plus '2 vols. D.J.M.' to ffep. The date of the collational note implies that these volumes were purchased at the five-day sale of John Putland's library held by Charles Sharpe of Dublin in 1847, at which 1650 lots were auctioned on the instruction of Putland's grandson George. John Putland (1709-1773) obtained his bachelor's degree at Trinity College, Dublin in 1731 and became a Master of Divinity there in 1734, though he was never a minister. He was very active in the life of the city as member of the Spiritual Society, a patron of the arts investing particularly in theatres, and a Mason. He served as a magistrate in the 1740's, and later as High Sheriff for the Country of Dublin. Havercamp's folio edition of Josephus, a monumental summing of the then-current state of Josephan scholarship. Dibdin reminds us that although not the most accurate edition, "this work contains the readings of two MSS contained in the Leyden library, and some observations of Vossius and Cocceus found in the margin of a copy of the editio princeps". It also prints treatises on Josephus, including Daubuz on Josephus's passages relating to Christ. Dibdin (4th edn.) II 132. Schweiger I 177. Brunet III 569. Graesse III 480: "Édition la plus complète et la plus recherchée".   Ref: 51323
