Edited by Camillo Perusco, who also edited the ed. princeps of Aelianus in 1545. The volume starts with a Greek letter by Perusco to a Cardinal Nicolaus Ardingellus (Αρδιγγελλος), followed by a few lines to the reader: „Σπουδαῖοις εὖ πράττειν“, and Perusco’s notes on Theodoretus; it ends with two pages of variant readings from a manuscript in the library of Cardinal Salvitatis.
