Trajecti Batavorum [Utrecht]: Apud Jacobum Poolsum, et Joannem Visch, 1721. Two quarto volumes: [34], 756 [i.e. 764]; 578, [158] p., illus., index, errata; 25 cm. Title continues: Joannis Frederici Gronovii, & selectis aliorum commentariis illustrata. Ex recensione & cum notis Jacobi Gronovii. Johannes Fredericus Gronovius prepared this massively annotated edition; it was first published posthumously in 1672, the year after his death. His son Jacobus then included readings from Florentine manuscripts which much improved the original. Graesse VII, p. 9-10, note, states that this edition is preferable to an earlier one that contained a similar selection, Amsterdam 1672, and in which the text was "quelquefois chang sur des conjectures, mais sans consulter des mss. ..." In the edition at hand, "les mss. de Florence ont t collationns plus exactement." Title page, vol. 2: ...Operum, tomus secundus, in quo libri quinque historiarum, De moribus germanorum, Vita Julii Agricolae, et auctoris incerti dialogus de oratoribus. Vol. 1 has added engraved title-page Title-pages printed in red & black with engraved vignettes. On the front flyleaf of vol. I is the signature "I. Newton, A.M.,1739". Vol. II has an armorial bookplate. (Paging 425-432 repeated in Vol. I.) A copy of this edition was in the Hollis gift to Harvard College. Bound in contemporary full leather, repaired, with new spine with gold in the style of the original, by the Hope Bindery. Stock#NS0273. A fine and handsome set.
