About this Item

Folio. ff. [6], CCXXXIIII. Title in red and black inside ornamental wood cut border. Printed in Roman type. Text contains 12 woodcuts and numerous decorative initials of various styles and sizes. Horace's verse is surrounded by commentary. Rebound in modern speckled calf. Leaves rinsed in distilled water (no chemicals used); mild spotting and staining remain - including areas in the first two signatures of transparent gray smudging (perhaps a printing / manufacturing error). Several marginal tears are neatly sealed; title page is a bit faded in areas; bottom inside corner of t.p. carefully repaired with contemporary paper; marginalia on leaf XCVIII written in a miniscule old hand; occasional lines of verse underlined. Outer edges of text-block left untrimmed after last re-sewing. Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65-8 bce) is considered one of the greatest Roman poets. This collection of his works includes the "Odes," the "Epodes," the "Carmen Saeculare," the "Ars Poetica," the "Epistles" and the "Satires" (Sermonum). Commentaries are included by the 3rd century c.e. Pomponius Porphyrio and by the 15th/16th century humanists Antonio Mancinelli, Giovanni Britannico and Josse Badius (Ascensius). [Adams H-866; Schweiger II, p. 392; BM-STC Italy, p.333; Edit16 CNCE 22688 (lists several copies); Panzer VIII, p.463; OCLC lists 1 copy]. Bookseller Inventory # 000223
