About this Item

Pp. 15 p.l., 234, [124] index. Copper-engraved frontispiece, woodcut printerís device, ornaments and initials. Contemporary full speckled calf with narrow gilt borders, spine gilt-tooled in compartments between raised bands. Extremities rubbed, joints split (but covers holding firmly on cords), spine label missing, but generally a good clean copy internally, in a still-serviceable binding. The original Delphin Classics edition of Sallustís works, edited by Daniel Crispin. It includes the Bellum Catilinae, the Bellum Jugurthinum, and the extant fragments of the Historiae covering the period 78-67 B.C. The founder and general editor of the famous series of Delphin Classics was Pierre Daniel Huet [1630-1721], who was coadjutor with Bossuet in the tutelage of the Grand Dauphin, the son of Louis XIV. In the years between 1670 and 1680, some sixty volumes of Latin classical texts were produced in usum serenissimi Delphini, employing the services of thirty-nine editors, including André and Madame Dacier, Jean Hardouin, Charles de la Rue, and Jacques de la Baune. In addition to a Latin commentary, each volume had an ordo verborum below the text, and a complete word index at the end. Handsomely printed and authoritatively produced, the Delphin Classics series "marks an epoch in the history of classical literature in France" (Sandys). Brunet (4th ed.) IV 184. Graesse VI 240. Size: Quarto. Bookseller Inventory # 21908
