Descripción

7.5" x 4.5", 40pp. Collation: B-F4. Bound in modern cloth with slightly flared boards. The margins of the frontis and title page are trimmed with slight loss the image of Bacchus. Pages 25-32 [leaves E2-4] are mis-numbered, the collation is correct. In January 1711 George Hannes discovered a 35' by 20' section of Fourth-Century tesselated pavement while plowing his land. Thomas Hearne had identified the principle figure depicted in the pavement as Apollo, but in this work Pointer correctly identifies the character as a young Bacchus with his panther and crowned with ivy [Parker, "A Guide to the Architectural Antiquities in the Neighbourhood of Oxford" p. 159]. Pointer discusses the construction of the pavement and the opinions of various experts before describing and identifying the Thyrsus, Cantharus and Panther and their relation to Bacchus.
