GREEK LIBRARY: THE KONSTANTINOS SP. STAIKOS BOOK COLLECTION HENCEFORTH THE ALEXANDER S. ONASSIS PUBLIC BENEFIT FOUNDATION LIBRARY.
Staikos, Konstantinos Sp.
Greek Library is a bibliography of the collection of Konstantinos Sp. Staikos acquired by the Library of the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation. This collection represents the entire spectrum of the intellectual pursuits of the Greeks of the Diaspora, extending over a period from the Early Renaissance until the late years of Neo-Hellenic Enlightenment. The books in this collection not only exemplify Greek printing and publishing activities, but they demonstrate the participation of Greeks in international politics and religious matters in the courts of empires such as Russia and Austria.
The collection includes more than 1,200 titles divided into five sections. The first section, Renaissance-Humanism, discusses first editions of Greek literature, grammaires, and Lexikons. The other sections examine Neo-Hellenic literature, liturgies, theology, and the Neo-Hellenic Enlightenment. Among these sections, poetry, novels, mythistories, gospels, psalters, the Old and New Testament, Works of the Greek Fathers, Dogmatic works, translations of European literature, and specimens of Greek typography in many places are examined.
For each listed book, full bibliographical notes, references in standard bibliographies, provenance, comments, notes, and descriptions by the writer are provided. There are over 700 printers' marks listed, as well as many title pages and portraits of writers, publishers, and editors. A general introduction, introductions for each section, a general index, and an index of printers are also included.
