Oxonii: E Theatro Sheldoniano, 1726. Hardcover. Xenophon (c. 430 - c. 355 BCE) was a Greek philosopher, historian, and commander of the Greek army. He was also a student and friend of Socrates, and is considered to be one of the best writers of antiquity. This is his partially fictious biography of Cyrus the Great. The Greek and the later Latin translation have been revised and corrected by Thomas Hutchinson based on reviewing the Codex manscript at Oxford. This volume is printed in Greek and Latin. It includes a full page engraved frontispiece and one folding map showing Persia and the Middle East. Rebacked with modern leather spine over the original full leather boards. Black and gilt title label to spine reading simply: "Xenophontis." Gilt devices, rules, and raised bands to spine. Modern headbands, original endpapers, and modern linen cloth strips reinforcing both hinges. Wear and rubbing to boards, corners, and edges. Bookplate of George Benson Weston to front pastedown along with his ownership signature. Occasional spots of soiling and minor foxing, heavier on early and late pages. 695 pages plus errata, includes addenda and index. CLA/021323. Very Good.
