SKU: 3985 Category: Tags: ,


8vo, pp. [iv], 92, [2]. Contemporary sheep, boards bordered with blind rolls. A little spotting. Binding worn at extremities with some nibbling to leather of lower board, flyleaf partially torn away, joints cracking but sound. Armorial bookplate of Henry Lyons to pastedown, along with cypher stamp (‘HH R&G’).


A rare printing of the Greek text of Epictetus, with a scattering of Latin notes, almost certainly for use of students. ESTC records the editor as Thomas Waldgrave - perhaps Thomas Waldegrave (1721-1784), who had been Gibbon's first tutor at Magdalen - and locates just four copies, at the BL, Oxford, Winchester, and New South Wales.
