Xenophontis de Cyri Expeditione Commentarii
A Greek language 1813 edition of Xenophon's Anabasis
Early edition, full leather with new spine. 22 × 14cm, 460pp + index. Greek text with notes in Latin.
Xenophon's Anabasis provides an enthralling eyewitness account of the attempt by a Greek mercenary army (the Ten Thousand) to help Prince Cyrus overthrow his brother and take the Persian throne. This edition has the text of Anabasis printed in Greek and the notes, introduction and indices in Latin.
Good condition for age. As mentioned, the spine has been replaced with new leather but using the original title label. The endpapers are also new. The main body of text is in good order with some light foxing and frequent pencil annotations throughout to the margins but these do not affect the text.
