LUCRETIUS.) Titi Lucretii Cari.

Book Description Birmingham: Johannis Baskerville, 1772, 1772. Quarto (295 x 234 mm). Near-contemporary polished calf, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with titles direct, boards bordered with floral gilt roll, gilt-ruled board edges, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, red speckled edges. Splitting and a little worming to the joints at spine ends but both boards holding strong, ends and corners a little worn, a few other marks and scratches to calf, some very minor spotting to front and rear leaves, but a very good copy indeed. First Baskerville edition, finely printing the Latin text of Lucretius's radical work On the Nature of Things, a philosophical poem written to explain Epicurean philosophy to a Roman audience in the 1st century BCE. This copy, which is notably unrestored (surviving copies are usually heavily dilapidated or rebacked), has an appealing pedagogic gift inscription to the title page, "Charles Thomas Coryndon Luxmoore, St John's Coll. Camb., ed dono. Dr. Keate. Eton", and bears the armorial bookplate of Luxmoore to the front pastdown. Keate was Eton's longest-serving headmaster (teacher from c.1797, headmaster 1809-34), who numbered Gladstone among his students. He was memorably pictured by Kinglake as "little more (if more at all) than five feet in height, and was not very great in girth, but within this space was concentrated the pluck of ten battalions. You could not put him out of humour, that is out of the ill-humour which he thought to be fitting for a Head Master." The recipient was the Rev. Charles Thomas Coryndon Luxmoore (1793–1863), who became the vicar of Guilsfield, on Powys, Wales. Seller Inventory # 118428
