First edition of this recension, edited with notes by Samuel Musgrave. Text in Greek with Latin commentary. Classical scholar and physician Samuel Musgrave (1732-1780) enjoyed a prestigious career until falling afoul of English authorities following his publication of a pamphlet accusing certain members of the British government of having been bribed by the French to conclude the 1763 Treaty of Paris, which formally ended the Seven Years’ War in Europe and North America. Musgrave was unable to produce the required proof to substantiate the charge and was subsequently discredited, after which he lived in much-reduced circumstances. The “P. Wynter” whose autograph adorns the title pages of both volumes is likely English clergyman and academic Philip Wynter (1793-1871), President of St. John’s College, Oxford from 1828-1871 and Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University from 1840-1844.
