[Greek letters] De Sublimitate Commentarius, quem qova versione donavit, Perpetuis Notis illustravit, & partim Manuscriptorum ope, partim conjectura, emendavit (additis etiam omnibus ejusdem Auctoris Fragmentis).
Third edition. 8vo., pp. xliv, 372, including engraved frontispiece. Title-page in red and black, woodcut initials and tail-pieces, large engraved head-piece to p.v. A few annotations in an old hand, e.g. p.15. A very light marginal dampstain to lower fore-edge corner from frontis to approx. p.xxxv but generally clean within. Contemporary dark brown calf, gilt spine label, gilt thistle and shelf mark at tail of spine, edges lightly sprinkled red. Headcap neatly repaired, upper joint a little worn but holding firm, upper fore-edge corner bumped with slight creasing. A few small paper repairs to ffep where it was previously stuck to the bookplate. A very good copy.Published in the same year in both Dublin and Edinburgh, this Dublin edition appears to be the rarer, COPAC finding only the ESTC listing plus copies at Trinity College Dublin and Glasgow University. First published in 1724 in London in 4to. format, Dibdin recommends Pearce's edition as 'the true text', praising its 'elegant and erudite notes' and adding that the subsequent 8vo. editions contain 'advantageous corrections and additions'. He records the second London edition of 1732 (the first 8vo.) and Foulis' 'very elegant' 4to. of 1763, but omits this Irish production.
