  • Paolo Manuzio operated the Aldine press from 1533-1574; UCLA Aldine press catalogue identifies printer as "Heirs of Andrea Torresani"; cf. also Renouard

  • Annotations by Henricus Glareanus on the Commentaries (leaves [301]-365), with title "In C. Iulii Caesaris clariss. rom. imperatoris Commentarios de bello Gallico, ac Ciuili, Henrici Glareani, poetae laureati annotationes," has special t.p., but continuous foliation and signatures
  • "Index populorum maxime, ac locorum, qui in C. Iulii Caesaris Com[m]entariis habentur, Reymundo Marliano auctore": leaves 268-300
  • Prefatory letter from Girolamo Torresani to Stephanus Carolus on leaves [2]-[3] of first sequence
  • Signatures: a8 b4 A-3D8
  • Woodcuts: Aldine device on both t.p., and recto of penultimate leaf; ornamental initials; text illustrated with two double-page maps of Gaul and Spain, and five single-page woodcut illustrations of the defenses of Avaricum, Alexia, Uxellodunum, and Massilia
  • Preface printed in small roman type, with space left for capital, with guide letter; text in small italic type
