What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Leather Binding, Rebound

The work was first published in 1756 and was subsequently reprinted frequently due to its accessible nature. Early editions of this work are hard to find, as the text was very often used in schools as it was a great educational tool for those learning Latin. Horace was a leading Augustan poet. His lyrical poems were penned in hexameter verse and the caustic iambic. This work sees his titles translated into prose. In Latin and English, printed in parallel. ESTC No. T52767. A beautifully bound and well preserved set of this popular Roman poet's works.

Condition

Rebound, in quarter calf bindings with marbled paper boards. Externally, excellent condition with very little shelfwear. Prior owner's inscription to the title pages, J Pansoney Cath Hall. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned to edges with just occasional light spots.
