Koller's Orbis Pictus Latinus

Post by naturalphilosopher » Thu Jul 26, 2018 5:03 am

I recently stumbled across this in a university library. It's a pictorial dictionary of latin. I never heard of it before, but it looks like it would mesh well with Orberg's LLPSI. Even the style of illustration looks similar.

Cannot find a preview of the Koller's book, is it very different from other illustrated Latin dictionaries, such as The illustrated companion to the Latin dictionary and Greek lexicon (Rich, 1849) or is more like Orbis sensualium pictus by Comenius?

I own a copy. It is a short iillustrated dictionary of Graeco-Roman and medieaval objects, concepts, mythological figures, etc. Interesting oddity.

Transcript of "A Smaller Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities" (William Smith, 1884) is in the final stage since 2014. I wish one hero could complete it…
