12mo. 3.5 x 5.5 inches.  + 292 +  Index pp.;  + 431 (pp. 313-14 not present, but text is continuous) +  pp. Index. Text in Latin with occasional Greek. Bound in contemporary vellum with yapp edges and handwritten spine title. A little age wear to extremities and occasional spotting, but otherwise a very good copy. Some pages uncut. 1765 and 1863 signatures on first free endpaper. Decorated by devices on title pages, by initials and by head and tailpiece vignettes. Commentaries by the German classical scholar, Gronovius (a Latinized form of Gronow) (1611-71). Born in Hamburg, he became professor of rhetoric and history at Deventer and in 1658 professor of Greek at the University of Leiden. These two volumes bound together are Books III and IV of a series, the first volume being largely concerned with Early Christian authors who wrote in Latin, like Cyprian and Tertullian; the second volume concentrates on classical historians, including Livy and Tacitus.
