FIRST SEPARATE EDITION of this bio-bibliography of the works of the Polish Jesuit, Jesuiten Sarbiewski (1595-1640) compiled by Lebrecht Gotthelf Langbein (1727-1792). The work includes detailed entries on his publications and in works he contributed. "The Horace of Poland, b. near Plonsk, ... 1595; d. 2 April, 1649. He entered the novitiate of the Jesuits at Vilna on 25 July, 1612; studied rhetoric and philosophy during 1614-17; taught grammar and humanities during 1617-18 and rhetoric at Polotsk during 1618-20; studied theology at Vilna from 1620-22; was sent in 1622 to complete his theology at Rome, and was there ordained priest in 1623. ...was then made preacher to King Wladislaw, and was for four years companion in his travels. The fame of Sarbiewski is as wide as the world of letters. He was gifted with remarkable general talent, especially in music and the fine arts, but his chief excellence was as a poet versed in all the metres of the ancients. He was especially devoted to Horace, whose odes he knew by heart. He also made the lyrical poetry of Pindar his own." (Catholic Enc. New Advent) [8], CLXXIIII, [2] pp. With engraved twin portrait vignette on title of Horace and Sarbiewski. Some minor marginal damp marks and light browning; wide margined copy. § De Backer-Sommervogel VII, 645; Estreicher XXI, 55
