Ad lectiones probatiores diligenter emendatus et interpunctione nova saepius illustratus. Editio quarta.
in aedibus academicis excudebant Robertus et Andreas Foulis, Glasguae [Glasgow] 1760 - 4to, pp. [ii], xii, 307, [1]. Contemporary French red morocco, boards bordered with a triple gilt rule, spine divided by gilt rolls, orange morocco label, other compartments with central acorn tools and corner sprays all gilt, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Corners a little worn (one more chipped) and several touched up with red dye, joints a touch rubbed and head of spine just slightly worn. Armorial bookplate with slogan 'Pro Republica' (Nicholson of Balrath, County Meath) above booklabel with the initials 'WRHJ' (i.e. Wynne Rice Hugh Jeudwine). The luxurious 'large-paper' quarto imposition - using the same setting of text as the octavo, and therefore capaciously-margined - of the fourth Foulis edition of Horace, following on from the 1744 'Immaculate' edition and reprints of 1750 and 1756 (the latter a medal-winning printing). The process of rearranging the frames has not gone entirely smoothly, with pages 20 (C2v) and 24 (C4v) swapped. This copy appears to have bounced around the British Isles and nearby points in Europe somewhat, having been bound in France not long after its printing in Scotland, and later belonging to collections in Ireland and England. Gaskell 383; ESTC T46249. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
