Notes

A rare Irish schoolbook edition of Epictetus' Enchiridion printed in both Greek and Latin. William McKenzie (d.1817) was printer to Trinity College Dublin and produced several small-format classical texts for the student market, all naturally heavily used and now scarce. ESTC locates just five copies of this one, with only the BL outside Ireland.
