Horace's Satires Epistles and Art of Poetry... Translated into English Prose... By David Watson and Samuel Patrick. Horatius Flaccus Quintus London: J. Oswald, 1743. First edition of these translations. Latin text with facing English translation.2 vols.8vo. First edition of Watson's translation, "a monument of scholarship and skill, not only giving a critical text and a specially attractive version, but embodying Douglas's catalogue of nearly five hundred editions of Horace, and Bentley's various readings. Its popularity was instantaneous, although scholars protested against the presentation of Horace in prose" - DNB. Old calf, hinges cracked, cloth tape reinforcements. Internally very clean. I have several editions of both Horace and Ovid, so I would be happy to sell those books as collections at a hefty discount.
