Isaaci Vossii variarum observationum liber

apud Robertum Scott, Londini (Londres) 1685, in-4 (23,5x18,5cm), (8) 397pp., relié.

First edition. With some illustrations. Brunet V, 1374.
Contemporary vellum. Faint spotting to title.
Vossius (1618-1689) was one of the learned Huguenots who emigrated to England, where he became Canon of Windsor, and had the finest private library in the world. He also provided books for Queen Christina of Sweden. This work presents the results of his research in a number of fields, most notably the Classical world, on which Vossius was a noted authority. These include observations on Rome, Alexandria, Babylon and so on, as well as writers, such as Virgil and Tertullian, but also subjects like travel to the Indies and Japan, Jews, among others.
