Descripción

Original white vellum with gilt oval decoration to the lower front board. Gilt title to the spine. Some very mild soiling to the boards. Half title. Rough cut page fore edges. Colored frontispice. Eleven outstanding colored plates plus four in black and white. "Daphnis and Chloe is the story of a boy (Daphnis) and a girl (Chloe), each of whom is exposed at birth along with some identifying tokens. A goatherd named Lamon discovers Daphnis and a shepherd called Dryas finds Chloe. Each decides to raise the child he finds as his own. Daphnis and Chloe grow up together, herding the flocks for their foster parents. They fall in love, but, being naive, do not understand what is happening to them. Philetas, a wise old cowherd, explains to them what love is, and tells them that the only cure is "kissing."[2] They do this. Eventually, Lycaenion, a woman from the city, educates Daphnis in love-making. Daphnis, however, decides not to test his newly-acquired skill on Chloe, because Lycaenion tells Daphnis that Chloe "will scream and cry and lie bleeding heavily [as if murdered]."[2] Throughout the book, Chloe is courted by suitors, two of whom (Dorcon and Lampis) attempt with varying degrees of success to abduct her. She is also carried off by raiders from a nearby city, and saved by the intervention of the god Pan. Meanwhile, Daphnis falls into a pit, gets beaten up, is abducted by pirates, and is very nearly raped. In the end, Daphnis and Chloe are recognized by their parents, get married, and live out their lives in the country." By Wkipedia. An exceptional copy. Language: eng.
