Height of text leaf: 14 cm. "MD" in date printed in apostrophic characters. One of two Elzevier editions dated 1669. The present ed. has the imprint date 1679 on the added engraved t.p., rather than 1663 (this latter engraving had been used in the previous ed. of that year). Also, the other ed. has "Elzeviriana" for "Elseviriana" in the imprint. Willems considers 1679 to be the correct date of the present ed., the date on the printed t.p. being a misprint. Cf. Willems and Rahir. Signatures: *¹² A-DD¹² (DD11,12 blank). Printer's device on t.p., head- and tailpieces, initials. Includes index.
Lib. copy bound in 2 vol. and interleaved in larger paper, with extensive ms. notes throughout. Notes possibly by Sir John Sinclair of Ulster (1754-1835). Binding: contemporary vellum boards.
