About this Item

Octavo, contemporary panelled calf newly and neatly rebacked, covers neatly blind stamped with initials "T.H.,"original endpapers slightly foxed, else very nice and complete with leaf of ads at end as is proper. Although Pitt had published a few poems several years prior to publishing this work, it stands as his first book publication. He became known for his skills at translations, and Alexander Pope was one of many to recognize and use those skills, benefitting most notably from Pitt's translation of Homer. Futhermore, this is the first translation of Vida's masterpiece into English. Foxon P 4160. First edition in English. Bookseller Inventory # 0800
