Guerin; Londini: apud Paulum Vaillant, 1740--1742) with 'Variae Lectiones' at end of each volume, collected by T. Hearne and the anonymous editor. Olivet's notes, omitted in this collection, were later published in a supplementary volume, with title Jos. Oliveti delectus commentariorum in M.T. Ciceronis opera omnia, Oxonii, 1824. The title-pages to vols II--III read 'M. Tullii Ciceronis Operum Tomus ...'; that to vol. X reads 'Clavis Ciceroniana: sive Indices Rerum et Verborum Philologico-Critici in Opera Ciceronis. ... ', by J.A. Ernesti. Volume I contains the rhetorical works, vols II--III the philosophical works, vols IV--VI the orations, and vols VII--IX the letters. Includes in vol. IX 'M. Tullii Ciceronis Historia, per Consules Descripta, et in Annos LXIV. Distincta: per Franciscum Fabricium' and 'Desiderii Jacotii Vandoperant de Philosophorum Doctrina Libellus ex Cicerone'. The frontispiece in vol. I is a full-length portrait of Cicero 'De Marmore Pomfret. apud Oxons-', drawn and engraved by J.K. Sherwin. ESTC t111296.
