Pallas, Peter Simon (Editor)
SRAVNITEL'NYE SLOVARI VSEKH YAZYKOV I NARECHIY... / LINGUARUM TOTIUS ORBIS VOCABULARIA COMPARATIVA ("Comparative Dictionaries of All Languages and Dialects"). Two volumes. First Edition
St. Petersburg: Typography of Shnoor, 1786/1787-1789


Two volumes (all published). A research into the possible common origin of all languages in one root language. Toward that end Pallas planned a polyglot dictionary of simple terms compared to their analogues in the languages of the Russian empire and the rest of the world. The publication of the results reached only as far as these two volumes.

Editor: Peter Simon Pallas.

Text in Russian. Two volumes. [20], 411, [1] + [8], 491, [1] pp. Quarto (10-3/8" x 8"). Calf backed marbled boards, raised bands, gilt labels. Each volume has dual title leaves, in Russian and in Latin, and the preliminaries include a guide to transliteration and a bibliography. Only 40 copies (of published 500) were allowed for sale (Source).

Very Rare, especially in such a beautiful condition.
