Charming and apparently unrecorded poem written on the occasion of the departure for the University of Halle of an unidentified Mr Ziegert by his disgruntled friend Johan Jakob Erlenbach (who, according to a footnote, did not expect his poem to be printed).

The poem concludes:

‘Va, reviens plus savant, mais encore plus ami:
Je serai ton Damon, tu seras mon Tircis’.

Not in OCLC or KvK.
