Fabricius. Bibliotheca Latina Mediae. 1734.

John Albert Fabricius (1668-1736) was a bibliographer who organized vast areas of philological knowledge of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in a series of extensive and admirably documented studies, made possible in large part by his own rich library of 32,000 volumes. He produced both the Bibliotheca latina in 1697 and this later Bibliotheca latina mediae et infimae aetatis in 1734. Fabricius also made pioneer studies of the apocrypha of the New Testament (1719) and the pseudigrapha of the Old Testament (1713). He also edited the works of Sextus Empiricus, Hippolytus, and Filastrius.[NCE]
