PAULLI, Simon -- Catalogi librorum in bibliopolio Argentinensi Simonis Paulli Venalium. Strassburg, 1670.
Four parts in one volume, 12o (170 x 99 mm). Contemporary vellum.
Bookseller's catalogue of Simon Paulli. Paulli appears to use the term "literary history" (historia literaria) in order to refer to the entire scope of information and knowledge contained in books, i.e., within those categories of books which he is offering for sale. Classes 1, 2, and 3 (comprising the first three parts of the catalogue) within this classification by Paulli have their parallel in the theology, jurisprudence, and medicine faculties at Central European universities. Paulli's class 4, i.e., miscellaneous (miscelleanea) is roughly equivalent to "philosophy and the arts."
