Book Description London, John Murray, 1849., 1849. First edition thus. Thick 8vo. Full leather, all edges gilt. Chromolithographic title page, section separators, and page frames designed by Owen Jones. Vignette illustrations in the manner of Flaxman throughout. Crest with the motto Franc et Loyal stamped in gold on front and rear boards, and bookplate of original owner, Robert Amédée Heath, with same motto on front pastedown. Marbled endpapers. Binding about very good, boards somewhat worn and scuffed around edges, hinges strengthened, front free endpaper a bit worn along the long free edge. Spine lettered Horatius / Milman / London 1849, the last in a tiny point size at the very base of the spine and a little hard to read. Robert Amédée Heath was a merchant in business in London at the time of publication, so the binding is probably fairly contemporary. Spine is browned and aged more than the boards, but solid; may have been rebacked. 1939 gift inscription on front blank. On verso of the front free endpaper is the bookplate of Ellen V. Becker, a Marlboro, Vermont bookbinder; the bookplate is a woodcut showing a workshop with tools and a stringed instrument. She was presumably responsible for the last refurbishing of the binding. Heavy book, foreign orders may require extra shipping charges. A gorgeous piece of printing. Bookseller Inventory # 3994

About Milman, Jones and Scharf wee DNB. *** HORACE (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), 65 B.C.-8 B.C., Latin poet, one of the greatest of lyric poets, b. Venusia, S Italy. He studied at Rome and Athens and, joining Brutus and the republicans, fought (42 B.C.) at Philippi. Returning to Rome, he was introduced by Vergil to Maecenas, who became (c.38 B.C.) his friend and constant benefactor. Maecenas gave him a farm in the Sabine Hills, where he lived thereafter except for lengthy visits to Rome. His first book of Satires appeared in 35 B.C., the Epodes c.30 B.C., the second book of Satires in 29 B.C., three books of Odes c.24 B.C., and the first book of Epistles c.20 B.C. The fourth book of Odes, the second book of Epistles, a hymn (the Carmen Saeculare), and the Ars Poetica, or Epistle to the Pisos, appeared c.13 B.C. Horace was an unrivaled lyric poet. His early poems show the influence of the Greek Archilochus, but his later verse displays complete and individualized adaption of Greek meters to Latin. As his genius matured, Horace's themes turned from personal vilification to more generalized satire and to literary criticism. He gives a vivid picture of contemporary Roman society and represents especially the spirit of the Augustan age of Rome--a time of peace, when the arts were cultivated earnestly without pretense. He had much influence on European poetry. The most frequent themes of his "Odes" and verse "Epistles" are love, friendship, philosophy, and the art of poetry. - mostly from the Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition, 2003.
