'This work is not remarkable for its correctness, although, according to Wesseling, it is much preferrable to some editions which profess to give a very accurate text. It appears by an extract of Obsopoeus, that these books were only transcribed by him, as they were delivered to him by Petreius, from Brassicanus, a learned man, who corrected and altered them from the original state in whcih they were found by Janus Pannonius.'

[Estienne, Henri] Stephanus, Henricus: (Hase, Charles Benedict; Dindorf, Wilhelm; Dindorf, Ludwig August, et al, eds.:) Thesaurus Graecae Linguae, ab Henrico Stephano constructus. Post editionem Anglican novis additamentis auctum ordineque alphabetico degestum tertio ediderunt Carolus Benedictus Hase [...] Parisiis [Paris]: excudebat Ambrosius Firmin Didot, 1831-1865. 8 vols in 9 (i.e. vol. I is in 2 parts). Folio, pp.[vi], iv, cols.1616, pp.[ii], 6, 12, xxiv; pp.[iv], xi, [i], cols.2794, pp.[i]; pp. [iv], [viii], [iv], 2, cols.1830, pp.[v]; pp.[ii], cols.2644; pp.[iv], cols.2216, pp.14; cols.2498, pp.[xiii]; pp.[iv], cols.2462, pp.[i]; pp.[ii], cols.2266, pp.[i]; pp.[ii], cols.2152, 366, pp.[v], xlix. Introduction in French, text in Greek and Latin. Decorative headpiece and initial to the beginning of each volume. Vols. V and VII lack title-pages, vols. III, V and VIII lack half-titles. First and final few leaves of each volume tend to be grubby and creased with ragged edges, some of which have been heavily repaired. Occasional light foxing and the odd light dampstain and ink smudge. Red ink blot to bottom corner of vol. I, part II not affecting text. Vol. VIII has some gatherings unopened at head edge. Twentieth-century blue library cloth, gilt titles to spines, edges uncut, endpapers replaced. Spines a little faded, slight creasing to endcaps and a few light scuffs but still very good. A robustly rebound set of this important work, with interesting annotations and additions. Marginal scholarly annotations in pencil throughout with occasional additional notes tipped in or loosely inserted. To vol.I (part I) title-page a small inkstamp reading 'Delegates of the Press Secretary's Office'. Vol. II has two extra printed leaves bound in at the front of the volume, plus a journal review from Zeitschrift für die Alterthumswissenschaft no.41, dated 5th April 1835. The most celebrated work of Henri Estienne (1528 or 1531-1598), first published in four volumes with two supplements in 1572. From its publication right into the 19th century it formed the basis of Greek lexicography. This later edition is chiefly the result of the prodigious efforts of Karl Wilhelm Dindorf (1802-1883) and his brother Ludwig (1805-1871). Ludwig never held an academic position and led so quiet a life that he was for a time thought to be a pseudonym of Wilhelm's, though his important contributions to this edition were authenticated by his own signature.   Ref: 50849
