Opera omnia, by Flavius Josephus, 1554 Basel edition by Sigmund Gelen. Translated and published by himself (1497-1554).
Complete work  + 886 + 
The work is in very good condition, except for the binding. Considering its condition and differences between the paper of the flyleaves and that of the frontispiece, it must be of the 18th century approximately.
Minor trace of xylophagus, without affecting the text, in pages 1 to 147 and later from 477 to 596 (see photos).
Almost no foxing , and sporadic areas with paper acidification.
Some pages have underlining and annotations in the margins dating from the 18th century, considering the pen and ink used. For example, on page 484, where the Flavian testimony is found, you can read ‘Christus’.
I am happy to answer any question from bidders in Spanish or English.
