About this Item

Small 8vo. Collation: a8, A-2D8. Pagination: xvi, 427, [5] pp. Engraved frontispiece by Gravelot and De Longueil, printer's device on title, engraved head and tail pieces. Modern full calf, blind tooled border, gilt-stamped red morocco spine label, all edges gilt, recent endpapers; moderate browning and foxing, notch in bottom margin of E3, with no effect on text. Very nice copy. Vaniere (1664-1739), some-times called "the Virgil of France", became a Jesuit and a highly regarded late Latin poet who was professor and rector of schools belonging to the Jesuits in Montpellier, Toulouse, and Auch. The present pastoral work, regarding a country farm, is considered to be his best Latin poem, and some believed it raised him to the level of the best Latin poets of the period. The fourteenth poem is about bees. Other books offer poems on horses or cattle (3), of trees (5 & 6), seasonal work (7 & 8), garden (9), wine (11), farmyard (12), stagna ponds (15), and Vivarium: the warren and the park (16). Vaniere died at Toulouse while endeavoring to finish a Latin and French dictionary. Bookseller Inventory # LV2001
