Frontinus, Sextus Julius.  Strategematicon libri tres. Lutetie: [François Ambroise Didot] apud Guilelmum De Bure, 1763. 12mo (14.5 cm, 5.75"). [1] f., xvii, [1], 212 pp., [2] ff.
$575.00

Frontinus’ classic first century work on military art and science here printed apparently for the first time by Didot. The colophon reads, “E typographia Fr. Ambr. Didot” and Schweiger calls the edition, “Sehr sauber.” The text was informed by the author's success as a general under Domitian, when he commanded forces in Roman Britain, and on the Rhine and Danube frontiers.
        Binding: Contemporary full red morocco, plain style. Side-combed nonpareil endpapers. All edges gilt. Silk place marker.
        WorldCat locates only five U.S. libraries (Society of the Cincinnati, University of Chicago, Library of Congress, University of Pennsylvania, University of Cincinnati) reporting ownership.

Schweiger, II, 369; Graesse, II, 639; Brunet, II, 1409. Bound as above; interior as "clean" as the edition. Very good copy.  (40322)   Please RESHELVE This.
