Amsterdam: Joannes Jansson, 1658. Hardcover. Editio Altera, edited by Joseph Scaliger. Compiled in the early 4th century, the Chronological Canons forms the second part of the Chronicon of Eusebius and furnishes a synchronism of the historical material in parallel columns, the equivalent of a parallel timeline, where each line is a year. It is the longest preserved list of Olympic victors, containing however mainly the stadion (running race) winners from 776 B.C. to A.D. 217. The text is in Latin and Greek. Folio: [xlviii], 197, [21], 85, 435, 260, [18] p. In a period full leather armorial binding (unidentified), with decorative gilt stamping and six raised bands. Faint evidence of moisture along the extremities of the first few leaves. The front joint is cracked, though the binding remains quite sound. Some general scuffing and shelfwear, with a bit of loss to the top of the front joint and spine head, and a few minor stains. Item #75855
