Lucretius "
De rerum natura libros sex, ad exemplarium Mss. fidem recensitos, longe emendatiores reddidit, commentariis perpetuis illustravit, indicibus instruxit; et cum animadversionibus Ricardi Bentleii, non ante vulgatis, aliorum subinde miscuit Gilbertus Wakefield."
London, A. Hamilton, 1796-97. 3 vols. L-4to. (26, 7x19, 9cm). [viii], xxxv, 382 - [xii], 404, [4] - [xii], 396, [100 indices]. Full calf, double gilt fillets; blind-stamped borders; gilt (board) edges and inner dentelles. (spines rebacked; gutters strengthened with linen; a few pages foxed/browned, esp. in vol. I and Iii) ¶ Provenance: bookplates of the bookseller William Henry Lunn of Lunn's Classical Library, Soho Square, London; and Samuel Robinson, Blackbrook cottage, Wilmslow, (the Persian scholar? 1794-1884). According to an accompanying letter this book was given to Robinson by Richard Heywood. ¶ Neue, treffl. Recens. nach 5 Hdschr.u. alt. Ausgg. Die krit. Hulfsmittel sind jedoch nicht genau verglichen u. der Text durch manche kuhne Conjectur verunstaltet [?]. Die Erlauterungen sind sehr schatzbar. Die alten Wortformen sind sorgfaltig hergestellt. Sehr schun u. selbst auf kl. Pap. selten, da durch e. Brand ein grosser Theil der Aufl. zu Grunde ging. (Schweiger Ii.577) ¶ Gordon 115."
