The edition, Par. 1781. 12°. 5 vols. is enlarged with a diss. sur les troubadours, and a table générale. The dissertat. is also printed by itself in 8°. as an appendage to the first edition.-Le Grand d'Aussy edited the work only from the extracts of the marquis de Paulmy and Sainte Palaye, and without having the original before him, and has consequently often fallen into gross mistakes; see Notices et extraits, T. IX. P. II. p. 6. note 1.

[blocks in formation]

This work, an industrious performance, contains rather scientific than bibliographical reviews of 916 books (without reckoning those bound up with them), of which certainly almost the half consists of antiquated theological works. It was formerly transcribed with eagerness, and even now may be profitably used by any one who is not a mere material bibliographer. The arrangement is according to the sizes. Folio commences; Quarto follows, T. III. p. 323; and Octavo, T. VI. p. 144. Two vols. remaining in MS. have not appeared. 7269 FABRICIUS, J. Alb. Bibliotheca græca s. notitia scriptor. vett. græcor., quorumcunque monumenta integra aut fragmenta edita extant. Ed. III. Hmb. 1718-28. 4°. 14 voll.

A combination of knowledge of things and of literature, which since that time has scarcely appeared again, an immense acquaintance with books, and a multifariousness not satisfied with the mere object which he is discussing, are the character of all the works of this learned man, who was an honour to his country. On account of the mass and fulness of the notices, often given incidentally and not always in correct order, they can be used under continually fresh points of view, and even on account of this inexhaustibleness they are deserving of the most careful study of every one.


Ed. IV. curante Thph. Cp. Harles. Hmb., Bohn, 17901809. large 4°. 12 vols. (68 d. 16 gr., on writing paper 92 d. 16 gr.)

Harles has shewn, in the composition of this edition, which is enlarged to about half, extraordinary industry, yet but little judgment; consult the solid review of the 2nd vol. in the Allg. litt. Anz. 1796, No. 40 -45. It requires to be thoroughly digested, is deficient in arrangement and accuracy, much that is incorrect is copied from the commonest sources, and an unnecessary prolixity prevails throughout. My own experience has taught me, that the bibliographical part especially, as far as it belongs to Harles, is full of mistakes, and is very little to be depended upon. It is not yet finished. The

bibliotheca latina nunc melius delecta, rectius digesta et aucta diligentia J. A. Ernesti. Lps., Weidmann, 1773-74. large 8°. 3 voll. (3 d. 16 gr., on writing paper 4 d. 16 gr.)

The superintendence of this new edition was at the commencement undertaken by Cp. Saxe, who was hindered in it by his promotion in Holland, and often shews his dissatisfaction with Ernesti's performance in the Onomasticon. Mercier de St. Léger has also written on the title of his copy: Editio castrata, interpolata floccique faccienda; in illa tamen extant additiones alicujus momenti ( Millin Magas. encycl. 1815. VI. 276). In fact Ernesti has allowed himself in omissions and contractions, which are not compensated by his additions. The book is also very incorrectly printed, and the indices are wanting. Beck, counsellor and knight, has promised to give a 4th volume. It were desirable that he would be pleased to give instead a new edition of the entire work.

7273 bibliotheca latina mediæ et infimæ ætatis, cum supplemento Mansi correcta, illustrata et aucta. Ch. Schöttgenii. Editio a J. Dm. Patavii, 1754. 4°. 6 voll.

At first, Hmb. 1734-46. 8°. 6 vols. Mercier de St. Léger made collections for a new edition. His copy enlarged with many additions is still in the library of S. Genevieve at Paris. (Millin Magas, encycl. 1795, III. 179 not. 1815, VI. 277). A new edition or at least a serviceable abridgment is greatly to be desired, as Mansi's edition is scarce.
