[two lines in Greek, then] Isocratis Orationes et epistolae cum Latina interpretatione Hier. VVolfii, ab ipso postremùm regognita. Henr. Steph. in Isocratem Diatribæ VII: quarum van observationes Harpocrationis in eundem examinat. Gorgiae et Aristidis quædam, eiusdem cum Isocraticis argumenti. Guil. Cantero interprete
Geneva: Excudebat Henricus Stephanus Folio. [14] ff., 427, [1 (blank)], 131, [1 (blank)], xxxiiii pp., [1 (blank)], [4] ff., 31, [1 (blank)] pp., [9] ff. (without the final blank).. 1593 Here is Henri Estienne's last major work and his final folio edition of any classical work. Schreiber considers it an "important edition" as did Dibdin. The text is Hieronymous Wolf's—first published in 1551—as revised by Estienne, who also supplied seven Diatribae (Dissertations). These latter are found on pp. 3–31 at the end of the volume. The texts of the orations and "letters" of the great Athenian orator (436–338 B.C.) are printed in double-column format, with the Greek presented in exquisite Greek type in the inner columns and the Latin translation in roman type in the outer ones. A version of the famous Estienne printer's device graces the title-page. 18th-century plain calf, recently rebacked; round spine, raised bands accented with gilt ruling. Gilt-tooled center devices in spine compartments. Two gilt-lettered spine labels. Title-page dust-soiled; a library's blind pressure-stamps; properly deaccessioned with no additional stamps. A covetable exemplar.
