La première édition du Banquet que Léon Robin a donnée dans los angeles assortment des Universités de France date de 1929. Or il suffit lire les chroniques bibliographiques de H. Chemiss puis de L. Brisson dans los angeles revue Lustrum pour comprendre que l'abondance des ouvrages récents consacrés au texte et à l'oeuvre de Platon pouvait faire souhaiter une nouvelle édition. C'est ce qu'avait entrepris P. Vicaire; avec une endurance et une minutie inlassables, il a refait successivement le Phédon, le Phèdre et le Banquet. Malheureusement une mort prématurée l'a empêché de voir son oeuvre entièrement imprimée: les manuscrits du Phèdre, dont le texte a été établi par Cl. Moreschini, et Banquet étaient pratiquement achevés. J. Laborderie s'est chargé des ultimes mises au point ; R. Clavaud, pour le Phèdre, et P. Dem pour le Banquet, lui ont apporté une aide précieuse. Le texte a été revu, l'apparat critique a été refondu, une traduction nouvelle a proposée. Mais l'importante discover de L. Robin a été maintenue; seules quelques notes ont été modifiées. En revanche, le développement consacré à l 'histoire et à l'établissement du texte ainsi que los angeles bibliographie sommaire sont entièrement neufs.
