B. G. Teubner 1900 Hardcover Very Good 
Fraying to spine ends. Pages tanned. Bookseller's tiny stamp to back endpaper. Faint crack to inner hinge. ; Preface in Latin; text in Greek. The so-called Letter of Aristeas or Letter to Philocrates is a Hellenistic work of the 2nd century BCE, one of the Pseudepigrapha. Josephus who paraphrases about two-fifths of the letter, ascribes it to Aristeas and written to Philocrates, describing the Greek translation of the Hebrew Law by seventy-two interpreters sent into Egypt from Jerusalem at the request of the librarian of Alexandria, resulting in the Septuagint translation. Though some have argued that its story of the creation of the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible is fictitious, it is the earliest text to mention the Library of Alexandria. ; Bibliotheca Scriptorum Graecorum Et Romanorum Teubneriana TEUBNER; 229 pages
