GIP number: J34
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), p. 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”, J35/2) for £1.13.0 according to the annotated British Library 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 goatskin (“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: England, 18th-century gold-tooled red sheep;  covers decorated with a chain-pattern roll border;  gold-tooled spine;  marbled endpapers;  gilt-edged leaves;  front and rear flyleaves have a Pro Patria watermark and “G R” 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.
