Book Description
London. Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1804. Quarto. Unpaginated. Contemporary half-vellum, marbled boards, contrasting black morocco lettering-piece. Extremities rubbed and discoloured. Marbled endpapers, armorial bookplate of Joseph Neeld to FEP, foxed. An early nineteenth-century edition of classical scholar John Lempriere's (c. 1765-1824) first work, published whilst an undergraduate at Reading aged twenty-three. First printed in 1788 (and thereafter frequently revised), Lempriere's dictionary has remained popular due to its accessibility; the information it contains is more accurately recorded elsewhere, but the concise nature of the articles and their often witty tone make for entertaining reading. The work was widely used by writers in the nineteenth century, although its influence on Keats (who possessed two copies) is now disputed. PMM 236.
Author LEMPRIERE, J[ohn].
