[Bound with: Aristotelous Peri Poietikes = Aristotelis De poetica Liber]. [With a Preface by Theodor Goulston (Gulston)].
Oxford, Typographeo Clarendoniano, 1805. Large Octavo. Pagination of De Rhetorica: XXXI, 237 pages / Pagination of De Poetica: XVII, 104 pages. Modern, recent, stunning half-leather-binding by our bookbindery in Frankfurt / Germany, which included the whole bookblock and endpapers with pastedown. New marbled-paper-pastedown and endpapers and the original bookplate of Daniel Conner applied. In professional Collector’s Mylar. Very good condition with only minor signs of wear.
The annotations, doodles and drawings by Daniel Conner, the Diagrams he included, the study-notes he left on the interleaved pages, allow us a very rare and unusual insight into the patterns and accomplishment of an anglo-irish student from West Cork’s countryside in the early 19th century Halls of Oxford University.
