About this Item

8vo, pp. [16], xxxiv, 189, [5] ads; title-p. printed in red and black; engraved allegorical frontispiece, woodcut ornaments; contemporary calf, pockmarked and looking speckled, gilt decorated spine, label gone; joints cracked; good and sound. "Longinius is the name commonly assigned to the unknown author of On the sublime owing to its long but mistaken association with Cassius Longinus É The unknown, in the light of his consistent treatment of first-century problems, was probably a first-century rhetor with Theodorian sympathies" (OCD). My regarded colleague from London, John Price, describes this edition thus: "The first translation into English, by John Hall, of Longinus was published in 1652, but it was Boileau's French translation in 1674 that led to the word "sublime" being used in an English translation in 1698. Smith's translation was first published in 1739." Brüggemann, p. 388. Bookseller Inventory # 23739
