A facsimile of the 1865 edition. In extremely good condition. For almost two hundred years, Lempriere's Classical Dictionary has been a handbook for teachers. a desktop reference for journalists and an inspiration to dramatists and poets, especially the romantic poets of the early nineteenth century such as Keats, who is said to have known the book almost by heart. In his preface to the original edition of 1788, Dr Lempriere expressed his wish "to give the most accurate and satisfactory account of all the proper names which occur in reading the Classics and by a judicious collection of anecdotes and historical facts to draw a picture of ancient times, not less instructive than entertaining". Many generations of enthralled readers since that time bear witness to his great success in that endeavour.
