DETAILS

A very scarce copy of the Bibliotheca Classica by Georg Draud.

The original work was split into four continuously paginated sections and a supplement, in two volumes.The four sections had separate headers and were as follows: Libri Theologica, Libri Iuridici, Libri Medicorum and Libri Historici, Geographici et Politici.

This volume contains the complete first section, Libri Theologica.

In Latin.

Though not the complete multi-volume work, any volume of this work is scarce.

Might benefit from some work to the binding.

Georg Draud, also styled George Draudius, was a German author and bibliographer. This work, his magnum opus, is a comprehensive catalogue of the titles of works which had, until the year 1624, appeared for sale at Frankfurt book fairs. A useful work, particularly as relates to early printed German texts, it updates Draud's earlier work of 1611 and arranges it more structurally and completely.
