Offered for sale are two leather bound books of English Prose by Horace. The two volumes were printed in 1793 and are titled, "The Works of Horace". Also underneath the title page it reads, "Translated Literally into English Prose; For thr Use of thofe who are defirous of acquiring of recovering a competent Knowledge of the Latin Language. by C. Smart, A.M. of Pembroke-College, Cambridge. In Two Volumes".
Volume I: Dublin: Printed by P. Wogan, No. 23, Old-Bridge, 1793. On the very first page of Volume I is the owners name, Samuel Porter and another name that we cannot read. Volume I has 335 pages.
**Condition of Volume I: The leather cover is very solid and in much better condition then volume II. The binding was recovered in leather making it quite solid. All of the inside pages are yellowed due to age. Overall the book is in good condition. I've found very early volumes of The Works of Horace on the internet but none from 1793.
Volume II: Dublin: Printed by P. Wogan, No. 23, Old-Bridge, M.DCC.XCIII. On the inside front cover of Volume II there is a paper pasted that has a shield with a signature of Wilson Scot Boice'. On the inside of the first page is the signature of Samuel Porter and on the second page is the signature of B. Duneaf and three signatures of Samuel Porter. Volume II has 455 pages.
**Condition of Volume II: The leather bound cover is is quite worn due to it's age. Along the binding in dark red it reads the Works of Horace--this is also worn but readable. The front cover is detached from the rest of the book and is being held in place with three small pieces of tape. The inside pages are all yellowed due to age. Pages 339 through page 442 have a small cut along the right edge of those pages. Overall the book is in good condition.
If your a collector of Vintage Books or a Collector of Books by Horace, I'm sure both Volumes will be great additions to your collection. A wonderful gift to give someone that loves to collect Vintage Books of any kind.
