Caesar, Gaius Julius: (Clarke, S., ed.; Hirtius, A. ed.:) C. Julii Caesaris et A. Hirtii De Rebus a Caesare Gestis Commentarii cum Fragmentis. Accesserunt indices [?] Omnia ex recensione Samuelis Clarke fideliter expressa. Glasguae [Glasgow]: in Aedibus Academicis excudebant Robertus et Andreas Foulis, 1750. Folio, pp.[iv], 378, [xiv]. Large paper copy, wide margins. With half-title. Very faint sporadic foxing, faint dampstain to bottom fore-edge corner towards rear. Contemporary dark brown calf recently rebacked in a slightly lighter shade, raised bands, title tooled directly to 2nd compartment, edges sprinkled red, endpapers renewed. A bit rubbed, scrape to upper board, corners a bit worn, very good overall. The Foulis' 1750 edition of Caesar appeared in three forms: 8vo., 4to., and folio. The 8vo edition is in 3 vols. and is distinct from the others, which correspond line for line though the folio holds more lines per page. Described by Schweiger as very clean, and by Brunet as a beautiful edition. Gaskell 139; Brunet I, 314; Schweiger II pt.i, 47-8   Ref: 54559  show full image..
