Schweiger II, 631. - Ebert 15372. - Dibdin II, 268: "Notwithstanding a few imperfections, this beautiful and erudit performance may be considered as the 'editio longe praestantissima' of Ovid. Its various readings, sagacious citicisms, and judicious selection of the most valuable parts of ancient editions, render it a work almost indispensable to those students who wish to enter minutely into the beauties and illustrations of the poet." (Dibdin) - Tlw. gering stockfl. (letzter Bd. etw. deutlicher). Schönes Exemplar mit Besitzvermerk des Klosters Benediktbeuern.
With 3 engr. frontisp. after B. Picart and J. Goeree. 19th cent. vellum with 2 labels on spine and gilt fillets. - Partly slight foxing. Fine copy, with ownership inscription of the monastery Benediktbeuern.
