About this Item

A decorative First Edition of Martial's poetical Epigrams. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Includes a frontis, and decorative initial letters and head- and tailpieces. With notes in ink on the second blank. In Latin. Edited by Michael Maittaire; information from the ESTC. Michael Maittaire (16671747) was a French-born British classical scholar, bibliographer, and typographer in England and was a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. Marcus Valerius Martialis (b. between 38 and 41 AD - d. between 102 and 104 AD), was a Latin poet from Hispania(the Iberian Peninsula) best known for his twelve books of Epigrams, published in Rome between AD 86 and 103, during the reigns of the emperors Domitian, Nerva and Trajan. In these short, witty poems he cheerfully satirises city life and the scandalous activities of his acquaintances, and romanticises his provincial upbringing. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The rear board is attached byone cord only, and may become detached during postage despite our best packing. The front inner hinge is very slightly strained after the blanks, but still good and firm. There is only some mild wear to the extremities, with just some mild bumping, rubbing, discolouration, and some slight marks to the boards. Internally the pages have light scatteredfoxing andoccasional spots,with mild browning. Overall the condition is good. Bookseller Inventory # 019831
