Gr. Lat. Basileae. Sebastien Henri Petri. 4 vol( ~s ) small 8 vo. I want the 4 th. only to complete my set: but if it cannot be had separately, send the whole .”
Lucianus, c. A.D. 120-180, Greek satirist of Samosata. The first edition of his works (of which his True History suggested the Gulliver’s Travels of Swift, the Voyage of Pantagruel of Rabelais, and the Journey to the Moon of Cyrano de Bergerac) was printed in Florence in 1496. In this edition of 1563 the editors made use of the translations of Erasmus, Sir Thomas More, Jacob Molsheym and Vincent Opsopaeus.
