. 4to. Pp. (xxiv), 398; 1 blank leaf, 286, (10) index. Contemporary limp vellum, worn and stained. Some very light staining to first few leaves. Contains three parts: i. the Lexicon; ii. Dissertation critica and; iii. Notae. The last two by Jacob Maussac. Valerius Harpocration was a Greek grammarian of Alexandria, probably working in the second century. His "Lexicon of the Ten Orators" contains information about events and persons mentioned by the orators, and explanations of legal and commercial expressions. As most of the lexicons to the Greek orators have been lost, Harpocration's work is of special value. Provenance: Joannes Vollenhove (1631-1708), a Dutch preacher and poet and previously owned by Abraham Bocstad. Their signatures on front endpaper. Graesse iii,213. Hoffman ii,195.
