The scarce first edition of this selection of Greek texts (with a following section of Latin translations) for the use of Eton students. A rather smaller selection had appeared from Pote's Eton press in 1755 but this expanded version became the standard, seeing half a dozen reprints before the end of the century. ESTC locates only four copies: BL, Oxford, Rylands, and Madrid.
