, Eis ta baia logos
Borcht, Petrus van der, 1545-1608
Antverpiae :Ex officina Christophori Plantini ...,1588.
A re-issue of the 1587 Rome ed. by Zanetti & Ruffinelli.
The 2nd-century Physiologus was wrongly attributed to Epiphanius; see Voet. It served as a source for emblem writers; see Praz.
The ill. are preceded by captions in Greek and Latin, and followed by Greek and Latin texts and interpretations in parallel columns, and by Consalus Ponce de Leon's notes in Latin in single column. Eis ta baia logos is printed in Greek and Latin on facing pages, and followed by 1 p. of Latin scholia.
Plantin's device on t.p. (compasses). A port. of Epiphanius appears on p.  following the "Vitae S. Epiphanii compendium ex Metaphraste." It is said in the caption to have been copied from an icon in the Sula monastery at Constantinople by Joannes Adolus. The port. and 25 ill. of animals, birds and insects are etched, and appear within decorative woodcut frames. Voet assigns them to Pieter van der Borcht on stylistic grounds. Decorated initials.
