Hoffmann III/581. Dibdin, II/572-73, ref.to vol.2: "This celebrated edition of Hutchinson is a companion to the Cyropædia by the same learned editor. It is compiled from a careful collation of preceding editions, and a MS. at Eton College: the notes are perspicuous and useful." Hoffmann III/583: "Hutchinson benutze eine Handschr. und alte Ausggg.zur Textverbesserung, aber nicht genügend."
