About this Item

The Satyricon of Petronius Arbiter.Translation Ascribed to Oscar Wilder. Of this edition 1200 copies have been printed and the type distributed. This copy is No. 774. Dust cover has 1 1/2" tear top front at spine and slight curl , chips on reverse top. To me this work is interesting from a historical perspective; it shows that bawdy humor has always existed and probably always will. The supposed author, Petronius, lived during the time of Nero and was the ultimate party animal. He was an intimate friend of Nero. This book reflects that lifestyle and shows the decadence of the age. Bookseller Inventory # 002379
