Online bibliographical references
Note 1 First edition of a collection of critical studies on passages of classic Greek and Latin authors and of short studies on Roman archaeology. Continuation of Electorum liber primus (first edition 1580; reprinted in 1585: cf. nos. 1540 and 1541).
Note 2 The work forms part of the Opera omnia quae ad criticam proprie spectant (see no. cp012406), but has its own title-page and pagination, which formally make of it a separate edition.
Note 3 It has been printed in the Officina Plantiniana in Leiden, but part of the edition received a title-page with Plantin's Antwerp imprint.
