Description

8vo, pp. viii, 205, [3, ads]. Text in Latin and English in columns. Contemporary unlettered sheep, spine divided by raised bands. Some faint browning, corners of title-page creased. Binding rubbed, corners a little worn and spine ends chipped, no flyleaves, hinges cracked but joints sound.

Notes

A rare Edinburgh student edition of the perennial schooltext, Caesar's Wars, with an English translation facing the Latin text in columns and, somewhat unusually for the time, footnotes also translated into English (having been 'extracted from the best commentators'). Six editions are recorded in ESTC, all of them rare, though this and the subsequent 1770 fourth edition are the scarcest, with only one holding located for each. In the case of this edition, ESTC locates a copy in Columbia only, and COPAC adds just one in Glasgow.
