FIRST EDITION of Oudendorp’s presentation of Appuleius’ Metamorphoses, with notes and commentaries. “One of the best editions of Apuleius is that published at Leyden, in 4to. in 1786” (Dict. Univ. Hist. Crit. et Bibl. t. i., p. 442). “La meilleure édition des Métamorphoses d’Apulee” (Moss, p. 84). “Ruhnkenius has favoured us with a preface to this volume, which ranks among the completest of the Variorum quarto classics. The entire works of Colvius, Wower, Godeschalcus, Stewechius, Elmenhorst, and others, are inserted in it, and the judicious observations of Casaubon and Pricaeus have not been neglected. There are various readings from nine Mss. which occasionally differ from those selected by preceding critics” (Dibdin). PROVENANCE: Duncan Black MacDonald (1863-1943) “was an American Orientalist. He studied Semitic languages at Glasgow and then Berlin, before teaching at the Hartford Theological Seminary in the United States. His main scholarly interest was Muslim theology, which led him to the study of the One Thousand and One Nights, as he believed that the Nights stories reflected the Muslim popular piety” (Wiki.pedia). REFERENCES: Brunet I, 363; Dibdin (4th ed.) I pp. 286-87; Graesse I, 171-72; Joseph William Moss, A Manual Classical Bibliography, (1837), p. 84. . . First Edition.
