Description:
Londini [London]: Impensis Kearsley, 1796. LARGE PAPER COPY, 2 vols., 8vo, pp. [iv], 274, [34]; [iv], 301, [27]. First and last leaf of vol. 2 blank. Contemporary marbled calf, boards bordered with a gilt roll, spines divided by gilt rolls, red and green morocco labels, marbled endpapers, edges yellow. Some light spotting and soiling. Neatly rebacked preserving original spines, corners a touch worn, some light scratches to boards. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to front pastedown of vol. 1. The luxuriously-margined large-paper issue of the scholar and controversialist Gilbert Wakefield's (1756-1801) edition of Virgil, part of a frantic run of work to support himself following his resignation from Hackney College. Despite the haste involved in his rate of output, his classical editions 'established Wakefield as one of the two leading British scholars of his time, the other being Richard Porson' (ODNB).

Ludg. Batavor. [Leiden]. Ex officina Elzeveriana. 1636. 12mo (130x70mm), pp. [xl], 411 + [xliii index]. Engraved title, small woodcut vignette with author's portrait on [*]4, and an extending map of Aeneas's voyage. Title dusty with ink splash, minimal spotting, lower outer blank corner of T torn.Contemporary vellum, yapp edges, later endpapers. Rubbed, spine tanned, corners bruised. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to front pastedown, few 18th century editorial annotations throughout. Black instead of red ink in the passage printed in capital letters, 'EGO VERO FREQVENTES [...]' facing p.1 of Bucolics and the dedication 'SI MIHI SUSCEPTUM [...]' on p.92, shows this to be a copy of one of the two 'false' reprints of the first edition, also 1636. The absence of Errata on p.411 further distinguishes it as a copy of the second, less beautiful, of these reprints. Willems 450

Leovardiae [Leeuwarden]: excudit Franciscus Halma, 1717. 2 vols., 4to, pp. [ccxxxiv], 717, [1] + frontispiece; [ii], [719]-1308, [192]. Contemporary blind-panelled vellum, spines lettered in ink. A little light spotting and soiling. Bindings strained at front hinges, flyleaf of vol. I almost detached, vellum somewhat soiled and marked, spines darkened. Masvicius's sumptuously-illustrated edition of Virgil, "held in estimation by scholars of no mean fame" (Dibdin). It includes a large index to Servius. Dibdin remarked on the book, "the notes of the old commentators, placed under the text, are sometimes curious and amusing", and "the punctuation of the text differs considerably from what is commonly received: but this is a subject on which the greatest literary figures will disagree". He included it in his list of best quarto variora in the third edition of his 'Introduction to the Greek and Latin Classics'. Dibdin (4th edn.) II 550. See also 3rd edition,… Read more
