ISTC ij00618000;  Goff J618;  BMC V 221;  Bod-inc J-295.

Shelf-mark: Sp Coll Hunterian By.2.9 (see main library entry for this item)
Provenance: Robert Hoblyn (1710-1756), politician:  'Bibliotheca Hoblyniana' (Londini: 1769), 364;  Hoblyn sale, 2 Mar. 1778 onwards;  lot 4008 (“Justini Historia, compact. in corio turcico, Venet. per Phillip. Condom Petre, 1479”.
William Hunter (1718-1783), physician and anatomist:  purchased by Hunter at the Hoblyn sale along with lot 4007 (“Justini Historia, et Florus sine Anno vel Loco”) for £1.13.0 according to the annotated BL copy of the Hoblyn sale catalogue - shelfmark S.C.S. 11(4).
University of Glasgow:  Hunterian bequest, 1807;  Hunterian Museum bookplate and book label on front pastedown, with former shelfmark “N.1.7”.
Note: Hunter apparently had a second copy of this edition, which he purchased through his agent, Jean-Baptiste Dessain, for 21 livres at the Gaignat sale - lot 2681 in Guillaume de Bure, 'Bibliographie instructive:  supplément ... ou catalogue des livres de feu M. L.J. Gaignat', 2 vols (Paris: 1769);  see 'Dessain-Hunter correspondence' (University of Glasgow Library, MS Gen. 36, f.23r);  it too was bound in red morocco (“mar. r.”) but the only copy now in the Hunterian Library is more likely to be the Hoblyn copy (from evidence of the gold-tooling on the covers and spine and from the watermarks of the flyleaves).
Binding: 18th-century gold-tooled red sheep, covers decorated with chain-pattern roll border;  gold-tooled spine;  marbled endpapers;  gilt-edged leaves;  front and rear flyleaves have a Pro Patria watermark and “GR” countermark surmounted by crown.   Size:  312 x 211 mm.
Leaf size: 300 x 201 mm.
Annotations: Copious marginal annotations in a humanist hand (heavily washed, but mostly still legible);  frequent underlining (heavily washed);  number "25" on n10v and number “500” on first front flyleaf.
Decoration: None.
Imperfections: Wanting the blank leaf a1.
