Spine gilt titled. Upper edge a bit foxed. Signature on free endpaper. 'A well-written Introduction discusses the relationship of the book to the whole work, its value as a social document, its philosophical alinements, treatment of oratorical style, relationship to the 'Dialogus', internal arrangement, and manuscript tradition (including a useful 'conspectus' of variant readings). (...) the translations offered are always vigorous, often quite racey. (...) the explanatory notes are clear-cut and often remarkably apt (...). Professor Austin's (...) edition is an excellent one, and will long remain standard.' (S.F. BONNER in The Classical Review (1949), pp.108-109). € 30.00 (Antiquarian)
