Justus LIPSIUS; Polybius
Iusti Lipsi De militia romana libri quinque : commentarius ad Polybium; Iusti Lipsi Analecta sive Observationes reliquae ad militiam et hosce libros
Officina Plantinian, Apud Ioannem Moretum, Antwerp 1602 - Although title pages dated 1602, some place this printing as 1598. Quarto, modern plain vellum to period style, recent endpapers, pp. 366 (2), xxix, (5), with separate title page for Analecta. Collated complete with 5 engraved plates in first volume, one of which is folding, some in-text illustrations, Analecta also illustrated including three small in-text fine engravings. Binding very good, contents good to very good with mild tanning to pages, dampstaining to bottom margin of text, hardly visible except to pp. 193-203 where there is a definite brown-edged tide mark to bottom margin that goes into the bottom of the text just slightly. Otherwise, nice clean copy, quite rare. Text in Latin but there is a section in which the text from Polybius' De Romanorum militia in original Greek with Latin translation appear in parallel columns. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
