Early vellum boards, long sides overlapping, title inked to spine in a later hand, spine a bit darkened. The second of two notably early editions of an interlinear translation of Isocrates printed by Chappelet, the first in 1621, with this one newly edited by A. Pezier.

Early vellum boards, long sides overlapping, title inked to spine, edges sprinkled blue, a few small stains. Early ownership signature to title: 'Christianus Bartholotti ab Henne(?)'. An uncommon reprint of an edition of the Greek rhetorician Isocrates (one of the 10 'Attic Orators') that Waldkirch first published in 1602.

The Latin translation is by Hieronymus Wolf. Schweiger I 181.   Ref: 25093
