Lvgd. Batav. [i.e., Leiden]: apud Elzeverios, 1638. First Elzevir edition, second issue; 12mo, pp. [8], 336, [16]p. index; handsome engraved title page showing Romulus and Remus nursed by the wolf by C. C. Duysend, decortive initials, head- and tail-pieces throughout; late 18th-century red straight-grain morocco, gilt-lettered direct on gilt-decorated spine, a.e.g.; rubbed, lacking front free endpaper, early ownership inscription on verso of the title page showing through to title; all else good and sound. An abridged Roman history, with special reference to the wars waged up to the time of Augustus, tracing the rise of Rome's military power, and its subsequent fall. Dibdin states: "Few editors have been more distinguished than Salmasius; and as the present condition contains the Liber Memoralis of Lucius Ampelius, published the first time, from a MS., the critic will perhaps be anxious to secure it" (Dibdin, Introduction to Greek and Classic Authors, II. p. 10). Copinger 1737; Willems 467. Item #27597
