About this Item

Translation by William Burton. 4to. Tan cloth spine with paper label and brown paper over boards with paper label. xxxi, 152pp. Very good. Faintest edgewear only. A wonderfully tight and attractive copy of this first modern edition, limited to 494 copies numbered (this #457) and initialed by publisher in red. Burton was the first to translate this 3rd century Romanized Greek romance into English in 1597 -- then (to cite title page) "Reprinted for the first time from a copy now unique printed by Thomas Creede in 1597." Several other English translations followed (in 1638, 1855, 1917, 1989 and 2001) -- but Burton's was the first. Printed on lovely, heavy paper and with a spare front board paper label tipped to rear pastedown. Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 39714
