Local Notes

This book is an educational text on Latin grammar and parts of speech. It was a popular textbook for studying and teaching the subject. The content of this book is divided by what parts of speech or grammar is discussed. This 1550 publication was the final book in the eight-volume collection. Nearly 25 editions of this work alone, this particular publication including Buchanan's work, were produced between 1512 - 1600. Buchanan interpreted and translated numerous editions from Latin into English.

Binding Notes

Presumably bound during the late 17th or early 18th century by one of the book's former owners, much later than the text was published. The spine is tightly bound, but the hinges are sprung. The covers are mottled calf, which provides the book with its splotchy design. The front and back boards are panelled with a simplistic gold design while the spine, also tooled in gold, is intricately detailed between each raised band. The spine has Linacre's last name and the book's shortened version of the full Latin title etched in gold: 'De Enem Struc'. Damage appears mild considering the book's age. The book displays evidence of shelf-wear: the binding material on the spine, edges, hinges, and some areas of the book's boards are rubbed, sprung, and cracked.
