About This Item

Four works bound as one (Simplicius’ Commentary on Epictetus’ Enchiridion, or compilation of practical precepts; Claude Saumaise, Commentary on Epictetus and Simplicius; parallel Greek, Latin, and Arabic texts arranged by Johan Elichman of the Tabula of Cebes (Anon.) together with the Aurea Carmina of Pythagorus). Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Johannis Maire, 1640 ([xviii], 332, index; 329, indices; [xxxii], 88; 15). Quarto (20 cm.) in modern calf, titles to spine, five raised bands; new endpapers, headbands. Epictetus (c. 55- 135) was the Stoic philosopher and teacher concerned with questions of ethics (as in, how to live one’s life), and the Enchiridion, a collection of his teachings and sayings, was compiled and preserved by his student Arrian. Simplicius of Cilicia (c. 490- 560), said to be one of the last neo-Platonists, also wrote commentaries on Aristotle. Claude Saumaise (1588- 1653) was professor at Leiden and something of an academic controversialist for hire, as witness his duel with Milton over the rights of monarchs (and Charles II in particular). He evidently never was at a loss for words (in any of several languages) and as another description, citing Brunet, notes much given to ‘commentaire prolixe’. An attractive copy bound in suitably plain seventeenth century fashion, a few period ms. notes in Greek.
