An extremely scarce sammelband trio of post-incunable works regarding grammar. The first work is Wildenberg’s Hieronymi Cingularij Aurimontani Tersissima Latini, an annotated German-Latin collection of synonyms of the Latin language and therefore also suitable for those who not only write letters but also want to write poetic texts, with a scholarly exposition.
The second work is Cingularius’s De vocum proprietatibus seu terminorum differentiis, another text regarding the properties of words, and the differences of terms in regard to synonyms. Examples are used from the works of Cicero, and other famous orators and classical poets, organized alphabetically.
The final work is de Garlandia’s Incipiunt verba deponentalia Joannis Synthis prolongata et bene, focusing on the depositional words of Joannis Synthis.
There is an early lengthy detailed inscription to the front endpaper, and a bookplate for one Edward Seymour Forster.
USTC records 3 copies of the specified edition of the first work in existing libraries. Worldcat records 1 copy of the second work, and 2 copies of the third work in existing libraries.
Three works bound in one vellum volume, 40, 14, 14 leaves
This volume is in good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the binding. The title page of the Garlandia has been crudely repaired at some point, with slight letter loss to the verso. The gutters at sig. c of the Garlandia are exposed. There is some damp staining to the lower margins of the last 10 leaves. There is some foxing and staining throughout, heavier to the Garlandia. There is some ink staining to the very edges of the margins.
