SKU: 2280 Category: Tags: ,


2 vols., 8vo, pp. lvi, [vi], 896; 752, [176] + engraved frontispiece in vol. 1. Contemporary speckled calf, smooth spines divided by double gilt rules, black morocco labels, other compartments with central gilt tools (or gilt numbered direct within a circular frame), marbled endpapers. Poor-quality paper rather browned and foxed. Leather somewhat rubbed and crackled but since polished.


An attractive copy of the second Ernesti edition after the first of 1757, being 'the more copious edition' of the pair; in both 'the preface, notes, and indexes, will be found interesting and useful; many obscure passages are explained' (Dibdin).
