    More Information:

    Groschuff (died 1709) edited the first three fascicles of this rare collection of obscure and rare scholarly curiosa, described by Jocher as "kleine aber ungemein nette und auserlesene Bibliothek" ("a small but extremely nice and exquisite library"). The twenty-one pieces cover a variety of subjects but many are of classical Greek and Latin subjects and were published in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.


    The next two fascicles are edited by Tilgner and are of similar content but include a few longer pieces. Such as, G. Burton, Historia linguae Graecae (pp. 597-708, after the London 1657 edition), and J. Hasaeus, De Beryti jureconsultorum academia (1-119).


    Apparently, the series was successful enough to be continued with a change of name and now edited by  Johann Philipp Hein, whose Observationum sacrarum liber primus was the first fascicle (not present here but the second part is) and the long work by Paganinus Gaudentius, which occupies the rest of both parts.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
