Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1861. Hard Cover. Good / No Jacket. Item #039853
Language: Latin. Bound with alternating blank pages, presumably for scholars' notes, this copy remains clean except for prior owners' names at the front endpapers, a gentle water stain affecting the heel edge of the page block but not intruding into the margins, and modest age-toning in the margins. The binding is square and secure, though the hinges are exposed. The blue cloth hard cover shows rub-through at the corners and spine ends, all softened somewhat and turned in, as well as moisture staining across the front and at the right rear, a short tear starting at the top of the front joint, and some surface cracks in the pastedown title label at the spine, though the gilt of the titles remains bright against the red leather. 426pp. plus inserted note pages. Lines numbered (phew).
