Modern quarter dark calf, marbled boards, edges speckled red. Nice copy. Second edition of the first collection (1673) of Plato's dialogues printed in England, edited by Joannes North and translated into Latin by Marsilius Ficinus. John North, D.D., 1645-1683, professor of Greek and master of Trinity College, Cambridge. "He was a diligent student from his boyhood, and, after proceeding to the usual degrees, he was made fellow of his college in September 1666, and began to get together a huge library, which he continued to add to during all his life. "Greek," says his brother Roger, "became almost vernacular to him." ...There can be no doubt that North read himself to death, and overtaxed powers which appear to have been of a high order." Brunet IV, p. 700. See: James Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica: A Library Manual of Theological and general literature ..., (1854-59), Volume 2, col. 2215.
