ESTINNE, Henri.

Conciones sive orationes ex Graecis Latinisque historicis excerptae. Quae ex Graecis excerptae sunt, interpretationem Latinam adjunctam habent, nonnullae novam, aliae jam antea vulgatam, sed nunc demum plurisque in locis recognitam. Argumenta singulis praefixa sunt, lectori adjumento magno futura. Additus est index artificiosissimus & utilissimus, quo in rhetorica causarum genera, velut in communes locos, singulae conciones rediguntur.

Genève: Anno M.D. LXX, excudebat Henricus Stephanus. [1570]. First edition. Adams C2486. Schreiber 176.
