[REVICZKY, Károly Imre Sándor (count)] "Periergus Deltophilus." Bibliotheca Graeca et Latina. Berlin: privately printed by Johann Friedrich Unger for the author, 1794.
8o (216 x 140 mm). With half-title, divisional title and final blank. Contemporary German green half roan, flat spine gilt, with two paper labels (slightly defective), edges uncut.
LARGE-PAPER COPY of the second edition. Count Reviczky was proud enough of his catalogue to have it reprinted, even though he had already sold the collection. The title-page claims emendations for this reprint, which is exaggerated, but it does contain an index for the first time. This issue is on wove paper and is as RARE as the original edition of ten years earlier (see the previous lot).
