From Wikipedia: "Egidio Forcellini (August 26, 1688 – April 5, 1768), Italian philologist [. . .] He died at Padua in 1768 before the completion of the great work on which he had long co-operated with Facciolati. This was the vast Latin Lexicon, which has formed the basis of all similar works that have since been published. He was engaged with his Herculean task for nearly thirty-five years, and the transcription of the manuscript by Luigi Violato occupied eight years more." "Jacopo Facciolati (1682–1769) was an Italian lexicographer and philologist." [NB: No additional postage will be required on this heavy set, just our usual postage rate per book.] ; Folio.
