8vo, pp. [iv], 342, [14, index & ads]. Contemporary brown morocco, boards bordered with a gilt toothed roll, spine divided by raised bands, second compartment gilt-lettered direct, the others elaborately gilt. A little foxed and browned throughout. Extremities just a touch rubbed. Modern bookplate to front pastedown, elaborate ownership inscription of John Williamson dated 1783 to flyleaf.


The single-volume issue with Greek and Latin text on facing pages. This is very likely a Foulis binding, though somewhat unusual in style - more heavily gilt than expected - with the distinctive cross spine pattern which Gaskell found on 'a surprisingly wide range of Foulis books, and... nowhere else' ('Early Work', The Library Fifth Series VII p. 87.) just visible amongst the other gilt tools on the spine.
