Description:

4to, pp. [xxviii], 432. Near-contemporary vellum boards, boards bordered in blind with a small centrepiece and cornerpieces of the same tool in blind, spine lettered in ink, front board lettered ‘MCG / 1614’ in gilt, edges blue. Lightly browned, some spotting. Vellum somewhat soiled and showing some creasing on spine and a few scratches to boards, hinge strained at title-page. Old stamp of a German school library to title-page, first 20 leaves of text with underlining in red ink and several annotations in black ink (most of them on the first page of text), a binder’s blank at the end also filled with notes in the same hand.


Notes:

The second Heinsius edition of Theocritus, which followed an octavo of 1603 that Heinsius reportedly tried to suppress. The second 'is preferable, and is, in fact, a very excellent edition.... Heinsius's readings are learned, sagacious, and ingenious' (Dibdin).
