Jakob Borovskij. Opera philologica. St. Petersburg: Bibliotheca classica Petropolitana, Dmitry Bulanin, 2009. – P. 642. ISBN 978-5-86007-618-1
The present volume contains an impressive selection of works by an eminent St. Peters¬burg Classical scholar and Neo-Latin poet Jakov M. Borovskij (1896–1994).
Being a connoisseur of ancient Greek and Latin, J. Borovskij, due to the life circumstances as well as to particular qualities of his research behaviour, did not write any monograph. His numerous articles and paragraphs often published in editions difficult of access or of limited circulation had been never previously brought together. The book in question for the first time brings the works of J. Borovskij together and is aimed at demonstration of breadth as well as of profundity of his careful studies. J. Borovskij’s files were handed down by the heirs to Bibliotheca Classica Petropolitana, which enabled the editors to publish some of his manuscripts and to define more exactly some points in the scholar’s previously published works.
