[AUSONIUS, Decimus Magnus. WORKS.] D. MAGNI AUSONII BURDIGALENSIS OPERA. Interpretatione et notis illustravit Julianus Floridus..., jussu Christianissimi regis in usum serenissimi Delphini. Recensuit, supplevit, emendavit, Dissertationem de Vita & Scriptis Ausonii suasque Animadversiones adjunxit Joannes-Baptista Souchay... Parisiis: Typis Jacobi Guerin, 1730. Engraved title-page by Mathey precedes the letterpress title; another engraved plate opposite p. 676, and wood-engraved vignettes and initials throughout the text. "Obscoena e textu Ausoniano resecta" and indices follow the works. One 4to. volume: lxvii, 684, , 16,  pp. Contemporary boards, skillfully rebacked, with original gilt-stamped spine laid-down, marbled endpapers, all edges red. Ex library; only a bookplate and a discreet embossed stamp to t.p, and no other marks. A few, random gatherings are lightly age browned, and the boards show some scuffing and wear. However, it is clean and fresh overall, and in very good condition in a handsome binding. According to Brunet, this is a highly regarded edition of Ausonius' work.
