Innen sehr gut erhalten. Ein dekorativer Einband) Auf den Rückenfeldern des Einbands je ein goldgeprägtes Blütenornament. Die Deckel mit Randrahmen aus zwei schmalen blindgeprägten Linien und einer etwas breiteren goldgeprägten Linie sowie einem ebenfalls goldgeprägten rautenförmigen Mittelstück: auf Goldgrund Mauresken mit Blattwerk. Reste von Stehkantenvergoldung. Fein gepunzter Goldschnitt: auf dem Vorderschnitt entspringt einer Vase mauresk geformtes Blattwerk, das sich bis zu den Grenzen an Kopf und Fuß, die durch je ein Band mit Punkten gegeben sind, mittelachsensymmetrisch ausbreitet. Oberer und unterer Schnitt mit ähnlichen Blattwerkmustern. Grün/gelbe handgestochene Kapitale.

Il y a joint les diverses scholies des éditions manutiennes sur lesquelles celle-ci est copié, sauf quelques rectifications ou changements dans les textes" (Renouard). Cf. Elizabeth Armstrong: Robert Estienne Royal Printer. Cambridge: UP, 1954, p. 49 & A.F. Johnson: Type Designs: Their History and Development. 1934, p. 130. Updike: Printing Types. I, pp. 234-5 & 290: "His Italic he based, he admits, on the Aldine italic, and on examination there is a certain similarity, although it is much freer in effect, owing, among other things, to its sloping capitals. Garamond is nearer to Aldus in his italic than he is to Jenson in his roman. (...) a delightful unconventionality of design - free and spirited, yet noble full of contrast and movement, yet with elegance and precision of line that marks them as French."Provenienzen: 1.

"Cicero's astonishing energy can be seen in everything that he wrote, a body of work unparalleled among those that have come down to us from classical antiquity. The forensic speeches which made him the foremost lawyer of his time show him principally as an able advocate for the defence. His prosecution speeches, notably that against Verres, the corrupt governor of Sicily, are equally effective, and they rise to an unequalled height in the famous 'Philippics' - those onslaughts on Mark Antony, modelled on the speeches of Demosthenes against Philipp of Macedon, which Antony never forgave and which brought Cicero to his death. His political and philosophic works have been accused of lack of originality, to which Cicero would have been the first to confess: there were few philosophic work in Latin, except for the Epicurean work of Lucretius which Cicero, a Stoic, opposed. His moral treatises and dialogues are thus largely works of translation and adaption, but non the less influential for that." PMM 64.
