Notes & contents:

  • 1st edition
  • Includes multiple other titles with half-title pages
    • Diatribe in Statii poetœ Sylvas, la Haye, 1637, in-8°. Cet écrit lui a mérité une place parmi les érudits précoces, et l’engagea malgré lui dans une querelle avec Cruceius. Celui-ci l’attaqua, caché sous le nom de Mercurius frondator ; Gronovius lui répliqua par Elenchus anti-diatribes Mercurii frondatoris, Paris, 1640, in-12. Les pièces de cette querelle, devenues très rares, ont été reproduites par les soins de M. Ferdinand Handius, Leipzig, 1811, 2 vol. in-8°.
    • De sestertiis sive subsecivorum pecuniœ veteris Grœcœ et Romanœ libri IV, Deventer, 1643, in-4° ; Amsterdam, 1656, in-8° ; Leyde, 1691, in-4° : ouvrage savant et estimé sur le système monétaire et pondéral des anciens Romains. La dernière édition, due à Jakob Gronovius, est augmentée de plusieurs morceaux intéressants (dont l’édition du traité antique de Lucius Volusius Maecianus sur les divisions de l’as).
    • 2) Flora Virginica
    • Observationum libri IV. Les trois premiers livres parurent d’abord à Deventer, 1662, in-12. Frédéric Plainer en donna une bonne édition, augmentée du quatrième livre, Leipzig, 1785, in-8°.

Johann Friedrich Gronovius (the Latinized form of Gronow; September 8, 1611 – December 28, 1671) was a German classical scholar, librarian and critic.

Born in Hamburg, he studied at several universities and travelled in England, France and Italy. In 1643, he was appointed professor of rhetoric and history at Deventer, and in 1658 to the Greek chair at Leiden, where he remained until his death. In 1665, Gronovius succeeded Antonius Thysius the Younger as the 6th Librarian of Leiden University (see also Raffaello Fabretti).

Gronovius edited and annotated Statius, Plautus, Livy, Tacitus, Aulus Gellius and Seneca’s tragedies. In addition, he was the author of Commentarius de sestertiis (1643) and of an edition of Hugo Grotius’s De jure belli et pacis (1660), amongst numerous other works. His Observationes contain a number of brilliant emendations. His son Jakob Gronovius was also a classical scholar.
