- The dictionaries of Robert Estienne marked the beginning of a new approach to lexicography in Europe. Using quotes from well known authors, his aim was to reproduce the vocabulary of classical Latin as closely as he could.

- This is a reprint of the Basel edition, 1740-43, which is actually a revised

version of the London edition, considerably augmented and corrected. The new entries were collected from an autograph, in Geneva, of Henry Estienne, 1531 - 1598, son of Robert and rival lexicographer. Antoine Birrius, the publisher, added his own share to the collective Thesaurus. This edition amounts to a unique compilation of interpretations, observations and additions.
