Chapter Summary

Hadrianus Junius' Animadversa of 1556 is subtitled 'a treasure-house of all sorts of erudition'. Junius was famous more for his influential book of emblems, his cultural history of Holland, Batavia, and his multilingual dictionary, Nomenclator, frequently reprinted and revised. Most of his editions of classical texts are left unmentioned in the prefaces of modern critical editions such as the Oxford, Teubner or Budé series, and his name survives in only a few critical apparatuses. This chapter gains insight into Junius' methods of scholarship. Nonetheless, the meagre legacy of his textual criticism, as far as practiced in the Animadversa, will also be traced piecemeal through the critical apparatuses of later editions in the famous Teubner series, and occasionally in other modern critical editions.
