This volume was printed in London by Petrus Davies, 30 Henrietta Street, at the Curwen Press in an edition of 500 copies.8vo, 220 X 135mm. First Edition. One of 500 copies set by hand and printed in Koch Kursiv type (first use of this type in the U. K. ) on Ellerslie mold-made made paper. Illustrated title page and 4 colored headpieces. Crimson buckram, ornately blocked in gold, spine titled in gilt. Some browning to prelims. A very good copy. I have several editions of both Horace and Ovid, so I would be happy to sell those books as collections at a hefty discount.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
