Hi sunt magistri qui nos instruunt sine virgis et ferula, sine verbis et colera,
sine pane et pecunia. Si accedis non dormiunt; si inquiris non se abscondunt ;
non remurmurant si oberres j cachinnos nesciunt si ignores.








L HE Editor of the Bibliographical Dictionary
*gain returns heartiest thanks to the public for their con-,
tinued encouragement of the work. He hopes he can
say, that his promise of keeping it in a progressive state of
improvement has been faithfully observed; and that the
present volume bears evident marks of superadded care
and attention. His aim and ambition have been to make
it, as far as time and circumstances would admit, in some
measure worthy of the public patronage with which it
has been favoured. It is to him an additional proof of
the good taste of the nation, and of the high esteem it
entertains for polite and useful liteiature, that a Dictionary
of Authors and their Works, such as the present, should
be so eagerly purchased by all classes. May a spirit, so
honourable to Britons, be ever cultivated, and crowned
with suitable success J

The subject of this work must appear to many at first
view as dull and uninteresting; but it has been the Editor's
constant aim, by inserting numerous criticisms from the
learned, with the best authenticated literary and bio-
graphical anecdotes, to render a work, necessarily dull in
itself, both entertaining and instructive ; and he flatters
himself his endeavours have not been unsuccessful.

It may be farther necessary to state, that it has been

the design of the Editor, from the beginning, to include

in his work an account, 1st, of all the ancient Classics,

both Greek and Latin, in all their principal Editions, from

/? O'C *> O* the


the invention of printing to the present time: 2dly, all
the primitive Fathers, Greek and Latin, with all ancient
and modern Ecclesiastical Writers in these Languages :
and, 3dly, all celebrated works in every department of
science and literature, published either in Greek, Latin,
Arabic, Syriac, &c. either at home or abroad. Books
in other languages could not have been included without
extending the work beyond all reasonable limits. Be-,
sides, the Editor hopes to be able to furnish his friends
and the public with something on a similar plan in the
more modern languages of Europe, after the present work
shall have been completed.

The fourth volume will be put to the press, and
printed with all convenient speed.

Liverpool, July I, 1803.

In vol. 2, p. 240, lin. 7, for 1473 read 473.
In vol. 3, p. 240, lin. antepenult, for Beparionem

The celebrated Gratian was the true author of this
branch of sacred literature : and although, in the 6 th
century, Dionysius Exiguus, Crescentius, and others,
had made similar Collections, yet Gratian, who was
a monk of Bologne about A. D. 1 140, was the first who
formed a regular series of sacred Canons, and re-


4 e o

duccd sacred jurisprudence to the form of a regular
science. The labours of the learned since, to amend
the work of Gratian, are a sufficient proof of the high
estimation in which the original has been held. Gra-
tian was undoubtedly one of the most learned men
of his age. The Glosses entitled Palea are the
work of a lawyer, who flourished a little after Gra-
tian's time.
