Lyon: Vander Aa, 1692.

Eleven volumes, duodecimo, the first with four engraved folding plates, and all eleven volumes embellished with charming ornamental title-pages; a handsome set in mid eighteenth-century panelled calf with original labels.

Handsome uniform panelled calf binding

Attractively bound set of Cicero in eleven volumes, noted as 'respectable and correct' by Moss. The title-page boasts that the accuracy of the text arises from the editorial finesse of Dutch classical scholar Jacob Gronovius, whose portrait comprises the frontispiece to the first volume (curiously, the English literary lion Thomas Dibdin claimed the editorial attribution to Gronovius was spurious). Jacob Gronovius was the father of botanist Jan Frederik Gronovius, correspondent and patron of Carl Linnaeus and the author of a treatise on the native plants and herbs of Virginia.

This is a considerable publication, continuously paginated for a total of 3611 pages. The folding engraved plates include the detail of an epigraphic tribute to Cicero and numismatic relics relating to the famed Roman orator.
