ROTTERDAM -- FRONTINUS. Libri IV strategematicon. Cum not. integr. (i.a.) P. Scriverii. Cur. F. Oudendorpio. Ed. 2a. Leiden, S. Luchtmans, 1779. (76), 570, (132) pp. W. engr. front. Cont. marbled cf. w. raised bands, dec. gilt back, gilt coat of arms of Rotterdam on both sides & blue marbled edges. (Top of spine slightly dam., ties & prize fail, slightly browned/foxed in places).

The 'Strategemata' were written as a sequel to F.'s lost work on the art of war & consists of three books; the fourth book, containing anecdotes on the management of an army, is perhaps by an imitator. - "Cette edition (de 1731) est bonne, mais elle a été effacée par la réimpression faite par les soins de Corn. Oudendorp, qui y a ajouté de nouvelles notes" - Brunet II, 1409; Schweiger 369; Spoelder 662 (Rott. 2).
