A scarce near-miniature Anacreon, an Edinburgh cousin of sorts to the Glasgow Foulis production of 1751, but with a Latin translation along with the Greek original. (It was also issued as just the Greek text, similarly rare.) ESTC locates copies in the NLS, Paxton House, Rylands, Leeds, Winchester, and three private collections, plus the Newberry and Stanford in the USA.
