Description
Lucretius Carus (Titus) De rerum natura libri sex recogniti, et perpurgati Accesserunt aliquot emendationes, edited by Denis Lambin & Adrien Turnèbe, collation: *8 *4 †8 A-S8 T4 V8, title within woodcut decorative border, woodcut decorative initials, lacking blanks †8 and V8, upper and lower margins of title trimmed, some water-staining, lightly browned, 17th century speckled calf, gilt spine in compartments and with red morocco label, foot of spine and upper corners worn, head of spine repaired, rubbed, small 8vo (107 x 75mm.), Paris, House of Rouillé, 1565.

⁂ Scarce first 'pocket edition' of Lambin's great Lucretius. His edition 'stimulated a demand for a pocket edition giving the scholar's text without the notes. This demand having come from 'men who were not only of high rank and famous but also learned...Lambin made haste to satisfy it and carefully reconsidered the text in the light of suggestions he had received from other scholars. The results were printed in 1565 and make the most attractive pocket edition of Lucretius that has ever appeared' (Gordon).

Literature: Adams L1662; Gordon 203.
