Amsterdam: Henricum Wetstenium, 1702. First Edition. Hardcover. The first edition of Broekhuizen's Elegies of Propertius. Janus Broukhusius or Jan van Broehuizen (1649-1707) was an influential classical scholar and poet whose editions of Propertius and Catullus were long influential. Many 19th and early 20th century editions of Propertius drew heavily on him, including Pieter Burmann The Younger's 1780 edition (completed by Van Sanlen). Brunet speaks well of the scholarship of Broekhuizen's edition (Brunet III, p.847; Schweiger II, p.830-3). Square quarto. Cover measures 22.4 x 17.7 cm [8¾ x 7"]; leaves = 21.5 x 16.4 cm. Typographic title page in black and red; second title page, engraved by Mulder (signed in the plate). Errata list on p.[28]. Pagination: [28], 423 (1), [100] pp. Foliation: * - 3* (in fours) 4*(in two) A-3T (in fours) 3V (in two). Textblock trimmed (no loss). Full vellum binding (possibly original, certainly early) with two binders blanks. Covers have blind-stamped rules and gilt lozenges. The spine is ink lettered. Slits for ribbon ties present but the ties are now departed. Fifteen (possibly more) pages have scholarly notes (in Latin) in an early hand. Very clean copy with virtually no foxing and what is there is very light and unobtrusive. Cover gilt is rubbed, one small flaw in the top cover vellum. Item #66660
