Graecum Lexicon Manuale
by Benjamin Hederich
Hederich (1675-1748) was a German lexicographer and hellenist who lexicon was first published in 1722. Morell (1703-1784) was a classical scholar and librettist. He wrote the librettos for Handel's Alexander Balus, Theodora, and Jephtha, but he "never prospered materially - according to William Cole, because he kept low company, especially with musicians, and was irremediably improvident. In his lifetime [he] was chiefly known, and widely esteemed, as a classical scholar.
