  • Edited by Giovanni Giocondo
  • Imprint from colophon (verso of leaf [264])
  • Signatures: A-B8 C4 a-2o8
  • Leaf [263] blank
  • Leaves 236 and 238 misnumbered 136 and 138, respectively
  • Woodcuts: Aldine anchor-and-dolphin device on t.p. and on verso of leaves [264] and 296; illustrated with 1 double-page map of Gaul, stencilled in six colors (red, yellow, brown, green, purple, and blue); and 5 additional single-page woodcuts of important places in Caesar's conquests, explained in text by Giovanni Giocondo: "Avaricum", now Bourges (France) was the site of the siege of Avaricum in 52 B.C. during the Gallic War; and "Alexia", now Alise-Sainte-Reine (France), was the scene of the most decisive event of Julius Caesar's invasion of Gaul; "Uxellodunum" was a fortified town which the Gauls attempted to defend against the Romans during Caesar's Gallic War (51 B.C.); "Massilia", now Marseille, was the site of a siege and naval battle with the Romans during Caesar's Civil War, and "Pons" shows the bridge Caesar built, allegedly in ten days, to cross the Rhine into Germania
  • The plans of Massilia and Uxellodunum are labelled in ms. by Aldus, according to Renouard, needing clarification because they were printed in reverse sequence, and thus face the wrong descriptions; e.g., description of Uxellodunum faces woodcut of Massilia, and description of Massilia faces woodcut of Uxellodunum. Cf. "Caesar's Commentaries," in New Aldine studies / H.G. Fletcher (San Francisco [Calif.] : B.M. Rosenthal, 1988), p. 116-119
