1. Encyclopaedism from Antiquity to the Renaissance.

Price: USD 88.00
Dealer: ZVAB, Fundus-Online GbR Borkert Schwarz Zerfaß
Description: ISBN10: 1107038235, ISBN13: 9781107038233, [publisher: Cambridge University Press] Hardcover XV, 601 p. Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Wolfgang Haase, langjährigem Herausgeber der ANRW und des International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT) / From the library of Prof. Wolfgang Haase, long-time editor of ANRW and the International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT). - Schutzumschlag leicht berieben und mit leichten Randläsuren, Bleistifteintrag auf Vorsatz, eine Seite weist einen Knick auf, sonst sehr guter Zustand / dust jacket slightly rubbed and with slight edge wear, pencil entry on endpaper, one page has a big crease, otherwise very good condition. - There is a rich body of encyclopaedic writing from the two millennia before the Enlightenment. This book sheds new light on this material. It traces the development of traditions of knowledge-ordering which stretched back to Pliny and Varro and others in the classical world. It works with a broad concept of encyclopaedism, resisting the idea that there was any clear pre-modern genre of the ‘encyclopaedia’, and showing instead how the rhetoric and techniques of comprehensive compilation left their mark on a surprising range of texts. In the process it draws attention to both remarkable similarities and striking differences between conventions of encyclopaedic compilation in different periods. The focus is primarily on European/Mediterranean culture. The book covers classical, medieval (including Byzantine and Arabic) and Renaissance culture in turn, and combines chapters which survey whole periods with others focused closely on individual texts as case studies / 1 Introduction Jason Konig and Greg Woolf Part I ClassicalEncyclopaedism 2 Encyclopaedism in the Roman empire Jason Konig and Greg Woolf 3 Encyclopaedism in the Alexandrian library Myrto Hatzimichali 4 Labores pro bono publico: the burdensome mission of Pliny’s Natural History Mary Beagon 5 Encyclopaedias of virtue?
