Venice: Aldus Manutius,
This Greek dictionary of Johannes Crastonus (ca. 1420–ca. 1498) would have been an important tool for a student learning the Greek language. Crastonus’s dictionary is complemented by Aldus’s own Latin-Greek dictionary and a long preface to students on how to use the text. The volume was edited by Marcus Musurus (ca. 1470–1517), a frequent contributor to Aldine publications. Bound by Ridge & Storr of Grantham in red goatskin for Sir John Hayford Thorold (1773–1831) of Syston Park.
From the collection of G. Scott Clemons.
