One of several editions and issues of Virgil produced by the Didot dynasty in 1798, most by their newly perfected process of stereotyping. The imprint here includes the name of Firmin Didot, who had coined the term 'stereotype', while others have only his older brother's name, suggesting this is a later issue.
