Opera: ad fidem optimarum editionum expressa.
Apud Bell & Bradfute, J. Dickson, et T. Duncan, Edinburgi [Edinburgh] 1792 - 2 vols, 12mo, pp. xii, 384; [ii], 410. Contemporary tree calf, spine divided by double gilt rules, red morocco labels. Some minor spotting, a dampmark to foot of index in vol. 2. Extremities a touch rubbed, slight cracking to ends of joints. Ownership stamp of Robert Montgomery, Convoy, to front pastedowns, with his ownership inscription to title-page of vol. 1. A pleasant and unsophisticated binding, perhaps Irish, on a scarce Edinburgh printing of the works of Tacitus. The early owner Robert Montgomery is from a significant family of Ulster Scots who settled in Convoy, County Donegal.
