Condition Report

First edition, edited by Jacobus Lectius. "Il corpus più completo pubblicato finora della poesia epica greca classica, alessandrina e bizantina, sebbene il colophon attribuisca chiaramente la stampa del volume a Pierre de la Roviere, questo può essere stato eseguito presso la tipografia Estienne, o almeno, con il materiale tipografico Estienne".
