Reliure : Hardcover
8vo, pp. 454. Frequent underlining and marginal notes in pencil. Contemporary half dark brown roan, marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. Rubbed, particularly to joints and spine bands, corners and edges worn. Bookplate of Sir Arthur Hobhouse to front pastedown, gift inscription to Hobhouse from C.O. Goodford to initial blank (dated April 1837). A graduation gift from Charles Old Goodford (1812-1884), then assistant master at Eton (later headmaster and provost), to Arthur Hobhouse (1818-1904). Hobhouse was a precocious pupil, learning Latin from the age of 4, but took up a career in law instead, eventually being awarded a peerage as Baron Hobhouse so that he could assist the House of Lords with its judicial duties. The pencilled annotations - corrections, translations, references - are plausibly in his hand. Goodford was conscientious about giving leaving gifts to his accomplished sixth-form pupils, later producing an attractive edition of Terence (printed by Charles Whittingham) specificially for this purpose.
