1732 This book is perbaps the most difficult and laborious that ever was undertaken by author

Lutet., 1773 “ The prolegomena of Villoison are ample and extremely erudite, accompanied with a multitude of notes and observations, the extensive and profound erudition of which (extremely rare even in laborious men who have grown old in study!) appears like a prodigy in a young man at the age of twenty-two, as was Villoison, when he edited this
