The previous entry shows the bilingual edition of Menander. In that edition the Greek and Latin text was printed on different sheets; as shown, this produced some inconveniencies in gathering. But it allowed Morel to sell not only bilingual copies but also copies in either Greek or Latin. I found one copy with the Greek text only (Paris Sorbonne), and only the one offered here with the Latin text only. – Bibliographical information refers to bilingual copies only.
