Thesaurus Graecae Linguae

Estienne, Henri, 1531-1598. Thesaurus Graecae Linguae ([Genevae]: Henr. Stephani oliva., [after 1572]).

The great Renaissance scholar-printer Henri Estienne (1531-1598) is justly famous for his Greek dictionary, an acknowledged masterpiece of humanist philology. This is a five-volume work that has been bound by a previous owner into four massive volumes, all of which have detached covers and other signs of damage and wear.

Proposed treatment: Rebind in full archival leather in 16th century style with hand-sewn headbands and acid-free endsheets.

Estimated cost of treatment: $2,900 ($725 each)
