Description:

Title page, Engraved portrait of Prince Frederick, xxv, 444p, new titlepage, engraved frontispiece, [6], 87p. Contemporary calf with a richly gilt spine and along the edges of the boards. Marbelised end papers. Old professional rebacking preserving the original spine. An extra engraved title page from the 1669 Hackius edition has been inserted on first blank. Half title, Engraved frontis piece, title page, engraved portrait, [28], 444p, Index, engraved plate, title page, [8], 87p. Index. Contemporary polished calf with a richly gilt spine. The first edition edited by Richard Bentley (1662-1742), Master of Trinity College, Cambridge which to some extent ranks above his Horatius because this is where he laid the courner stones of all subsequent work on the Latin comic metres. R.J. White p200 writes that "Not only did he suggest about a thousand corrections in the text of the plays, with a running commentary on the notes of Doctor Hare's edition but he added a dissertation on the Terentian metres, showing with his celebrated 'divination' just how (in his view) the ancient comedians spoke their lines". Bartholomew & Clark #175. Schweiger p1067. From the Library of Sir Edmund Hartopp with bookplate and Joseph Cradock (1742-1826) with signature on the inside front blank. A fresh clean copy in excellent condition. Bookseller Inventory #
