Nomenclator Latinograeco-Germanicus, in gratiam tironum Graecae linguae ... Accessit de verbis anomalis, defectiuis & poeticis commentariolus, multis locis correctus & auctus

by GRETSER, Jacob, S.J


Ingolstadt: Adam Sartorius. 1598. Contemporary limp vellum made from early manuscript leaf (with neat repair and without ties) 8vo . Greatly enlarged edition of this Latin-Greek- German dictionary which has a second volume added that almost doubles the size of the first edition of 1595. The work is organized into thirty subject areas: e.g. God, the heavens (moon, planets and stars); nature; time; the four elements; meteorology; metals, stones and gems; fruits; plants; sea animals; land animals; arts and sciences; government; family; war and peace, etc. Also included here is a very detailed ninety-eight page index for the first part which greatly enhances the works usefulness. The second volume (Commentariolus verborum anomalorum et defectiuorum poëtis legendis admodum utilis), appearing here for the first time, deals with a study of irregular Greek and Latin verbs to aid in the proper reading of the Greek and Latin poets. Jacob Gretser (1562-1625) was "A celebrated Jesuit writer ... He entered the Society of Jesus in 1578, and nine years later he defended publicly theses covering the whole field of theology. Ingolstadt was the principal scene of his work; here he taught philosophy for three years, dogmatic theology for fourteen and moral theology for seven years. ... He was recognized as one of the best controversialists of his time, and was highly esteemed by Pope Clement VIII, Emperor Ferdinand II, and Maximilian I of Bavaria. Some of the greatest lights of his age, such as Cardinal Bellarmine and Marcus Welser, corresponded with him and consulted him in their difficulties. He edited or expanded many works of the patristic and medieval writers, and composed erudite treatises on most diverse subjects" (New Catholic Encyclopedia). The rarity of the present work reflects, no doubt, on its usefulness with university students who would have literally worn them out through heavy use. The OCLC locates only the University of Toronto copy in North American Libraries 2 parts in 1 vol. [2], 274, [98], 201 pp. Woodcut vignette on title-page with woodcut headpieces and initials; Latin, Greek and German text; contemporary ownership inscription on title; title-page a little dusty; some minor marginal foxing. § VD 16, G 3223; de Backer- Sommervogel III, 1757-58, no. 36; Stalla, Ingolstadt 1851; not in Vancil
