"This is the very scarcest of the Delphine Classics." - Moss. "Circumstances hitherto unknown have come to interrupt the impression of that part of the Cicero, from which the only existing volume will probably not have been put up for sale, and will have even [been] destroyed, with the exception of a few copies. This is why this volume is certainly the rarest of all those in the ad usum series." - Brunet II, page 16; Goldsmith 1055; Schweiger I,173 "Sehr seltne Ausg." Moss I, 337.
