Notes

First edition of Sallust published under the editorship of the classical scholar Henry Homer (17531791), a desirable edition in any form, here in a handsome early binding and in remarkable condition. Dibdin commended this edition: "A beautiful and correct book... The text is given with the same purity as are those of Caesar, Livy, and Pliny, by the same excellent scholar. It contains an index of the various readings according to Havercamp's edition. 'This edition', says a learned correspondent uncited, 'is absolutely immaculate; so are all Homer's editions; the accuracy of the editor was wonderful'" (Thomas Frognall Dibdin, An Introduction to the... Greek and Latin Classics, 1827, vol. II, p. 388).
