Folio, modern half vellum over boards covered by incunabula leaves, bookplate removed from front paste-down, first leaf with short title has neat early ownership inscription, very nice and preserved in new clamshell case. Translated by Georgius Trapezuntius, this is the final fifteenth century edition. Eusebius uses quotations from many classical authors, the Bible, and other sources to further his claim that Greek tradition is inferior to the Hebrew. Coincidentally, Eusebius has preserved in the classical quotations he used important material from authors and sources now lost to us except for this text. For this edition, the textual arrangement has been altered and the editor Hietonymus Boninus's letter as well as the Tabula have been moved to the end of volume. This edition is surprisingly uncommon, with only the Huntington copy located west of the Mississippi, and with other copies located at Harvard, Yale, Trinity, Walthers, Library of Conrgress, Dartmouth, and the University of Illinois.
