Early gilt-ruled calf with decorated spine. 2 1/4 by 4 1/4 inches. 64mo. x, 196pp. Engraved title page. The fictitious eyewitness accounts of the Trojan War purportedly by Dictys Cretensis and Dares Phrygius enjoyed great popularity throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and were key sources for medieval romances such as Caxton's "The Recuyell of the histories of Troye". A good copy with some light chipping to the corners and the lower front cover and some tenderness to the front hinge. The text is very good with some minor foxing. There is a small bookplate at front and an ink name at the top of the flyleaf. A handsome copy. Bookseller Inventory #
