Lexicon Manuale Graeco-Latinum & Latino-Graecum
Cornelius Schrevel (1608-1664) was a Dutch linguist who was headmaster of the "gymnasium" (secondary school) in Leiden. Not a scholar himself, he specialized in publishing editions of all the major Greek and Latin authors, sometimes with notes of his own but mainly reprinting commentary from others. This Lexicon was first published in 1661 but, being extremely popular, was reissued right into the 19th century.
