EURIPIDES. De Fenicische vrouwen. Treurspel, naar Euripides, door P. Camper, Ph. Th. M. & L.H. Doctor. Zutphen, Bij H.C.A. Thieme, 1823. (I),4, XLVIII,140,(4) p. Red morocco. 21 cm (Ref: Geerebaert XXXVII,11; not in OiN) (Details: Back ruled gilt and with a beige shield in the 'second compartment'. Boards with borders consisting of a row of gilt floral motives. Edges of the boards and of the bookblock also gilt. Oval engraving on the title page, designed bij P. Camper and engraved by D. Veelwaard. Marbled endpapers) (Condition: Binding somewhat soiled and worn at the extremes. An extra flyleaf, once bound before the title, has been removed. On this disappeared flyleaf Camper probably wrote a dedication. Faint ink traces of this dedication are still visible on the verso of the flyleaf. (The Royal Library in The Hague has a copy of this title, bound in exact the same binding, but still having Camper's dedication to the Minister of Education) (Note: Verse translation into Dutch of Euripides' Phoenissae', made by the conrector of the 'schola latina' at Zutphen, Petrus Camper, 1797-1852. 'Zij is getrouw, vloeijend, schoon. Ook de achter aan geplaatste aanteekeningen, doen den Dichter eere aan. Deze lettervrucht, is derhalve eene gunstige onderscheiding waardig'. ('Boekzaal der geleerde wereld: en tijdschrift voor de Protestantsche kerken', Amsterdam 1829, p. 193)) (Photographs on request)
