Description

Printed at the press of the Armenian Academy on the island of San Lazaro in the Ventian lagoon, this Armenian version of Cicero’s De officiis was translated by Father Mkrtic Awgerean. Presumably the attractive contemporary binding is an example of the work of the Academy’s Armenian bindery.

Description

8vo (14 x 23 cm). pp. [4], 153, [1]. Original speckled sheep, boards bordered in gilt in compartments with Greek key design and flowers, spine label titled in gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers; light wear to extremities.
