Re-issue of the first edition, also favorably noted by Willems [with the siren on the head of the dedicatory page and the pagination error of 238 misnumbered as 248]. “One of the neatest and rarest Elzevier editions, and greatly sought after. A less fine reprint of the same date is distinguished by having the right page, 149.” – Ebert, ?Universal bibliography. (1837), I, (English ed.), no. 3273. Willems gives details on the issue points, also describing a second edition with 526 pages instead of the 561 herein. The copies I have read about contain 5 engravings (6 are present here). “Il y a deux réimpressions sous la même date. La première, qui est admirablement exécutée, copie ligne pour ligne l’édition originale; elle se reconnaître à la sirène qui est en tête de l’épître dédicatoire, et à la page 238 cotée par erreur 248.” – Willems. ¶ This work comprises Cauis Julius Caesar’s commentaries on the Gallic and Civil Wars of 100-44BC, including the campaigns in Gaul (France), Africa and Hispaniae (Spain). ¶ Brunet, I, 1455; Friedrich Adolf Ebert, Allgemeines bibliographisches Lexikon, Volume 1, Leipzig, (1821), no. 3273; Graesse, II, 7; Édouard Rahir 409; Alphonse Willems, Les Elzeviers, 420.
