Dealer Notes
First words of title transliterated from Greek. Though he doesn’t comment directly on this edition, Dibdin notes Harwood’s observation on the first Foulis edition of 1744, that he has ‘read this edition twice through and affirm it to be one of the most accurate of the Glasgow editions of the Greek classics.’ He also notes that the later edition of 1770 is less accurate, according to Harles.
