Objektsbeskrivning
PLUTARCH. Plutarchi Chaeronei, gravisimi et philosophi et historici, Vitae comparatae illustrium virorum, Graecorum & Romanorum, ita digesta ut temporum ordo seriesque constet, Hermano Cruserio... Et ne quid ad perfectam antiquitatis in hoc genere cognitionem deesset, sex alias etiam virorum illustrium vitas adiunximus, sed ab alius authoribus conscriptas: tum separatim librum Aemylii Probi de Vita excellentium Imperatorum adiunximus, quem ille Romano plane, hoc est, eleganti & puro sermone conscriptum reliquit. Quanta autem sit in huiusmodi scriptionis genere vtilitas, ne nos hic te humanissime Lector diutiu`s detineamus, ex Interpretis praefationibus abunde` cognosces. Illud quidem tacere nolumus, aspersa esse in toto hoc per margines opere, scholia, quibus magnam lucem innumeris locis allatam esse, negare nemo possit. Vale & fruere, Lector amice. Accesserunt his indices locupletissimi. Basileae (apud Thomam Guarinum) 1573.
