Final leaf with repaired tear, a little fingering to title but overall quite fresh; spine and corners dry and worn.

RARE SECOND EDITION. In this second edition Robert Estienne expands his project of making Latin texts available to Francophones by "adding French words from his own reading (including words taken from Rabelais) and inviting his readers to contribute words 'ès Rommans et bons autheurs François,' an acknowledgement that he was interested not only in translating the treasures of Latin but also in collecting the treasures of French" (Considine pp 44-45). Adams S1813.
