About this Item

Octavo, contemporary stiff vellum, light collector's stamp on back of title, light age tanning, few small ink spots, occasional light watermarking, quite decent and with the original blank leaf a8 present. Estienne (Henricus Stephanus II) apologises for the quality of the printing which was not up to his own high standards; he had farmed out this work to a yet unknown printer during the period of 1584-1585 when his own press was shut down in Geneva because of his precarious financial situation. He has used the scholarly Camerarius text of Macrobius, which was then corrected by the noted Flemish scholar Louis Carrion, to which Estienne has then incorporated his own revisions and corrections based on his own work with further ancient manuscript material. It is, as Schreiber notes, "an important edition.". Adams M 71; not in Brunet; Graesse IV, 330; Schweiger II, 587; Schreiber The Estiennes, 213. The first Henri Estienne II edition. Rare. Because of the value of this item, extra postal insurance or registry fees may be required. Bookseller Inventory # 1101
