¶ The Bibliographia Antiquaria of Johann Albert Fabricius (1668-1736) is the first bibliography of archaeology. Fabricius began his career as the librarian to a private collection in Hamburg, and established his reputation with the Bibliotheca Latina (1697), a summary of all the classical Latin writings, and the monumental Bibliotheca Graeca (1705-28), a similar and more comprehensive survey of surviving classical Greek literature. The present work is perhaps more creative, in that it tackled classical archaeology from a practical, bibliographical point of view, pointing students to the most useful works on the subject. - Third, but best edition.
