A RARE TEXT, not to be found on the market

Isocrates (436–338 BC), an ancient Greek rhetorician, was one of the ten Attic orators. Among the most influential Greek rhetoricians of his time, Isocrates made many contributions to rhetoric and education through his teaching and written works.

Isocrates celebrated "Panegyricus," is his greatest political oration which has been admired by scholars throughout the ages. In it Isocrates first pronounces his concept of a panhellenic culture. Isocrates's works, among the very best of Greek literature, were highly treasured by the humanists and frequently printed, edited and translated.

Isocrates saw rhetoric not as a device as a powerful too of persuasion for human betterment, if it was wielded by properly gifted and trained men.

I did not find this edition in the BNF, nor anywhere else.
