Descripción

First Edition of Stanley’s translation. AUTHOR’S PRESENTATION COPY, FIRST TO HIS WIFE AND THEN TO HIS DAUGHTER, Sighed by the author and dated twice with separate inscriptions to both women. With handsome engraved head pieces. 8vo, handsomely bound, no doubt to the author’s personal taste as this was his wife’s copy, in full contemporary polished calf. The boards with triple gilt rules around a rolled boarder in blind, the gilt rules with gilt flower’s in each corner, gilt stippled board-edges and gilt tooled turn-ins, the spines with very attractive gilt tooling between gilt tooled raised bands, two compartments with black morocco labels gilt ruled and lettered, t.e.g. viii, 140pp. A very fine copy, beautifully preserved inside and out. The binding with only the lightest of aging one would expect for calf. FIRST EDITION, A FAMILY ASSOCIATION COPY, BEAUTIFULLY BOUND AND SIGNED TWICE BY THE AUTHOR TO HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER. A fine free-verse translation of the Odes of Horace, generally considered to be the greatest of the Classical Poets to survive to the present day. The author found the more literal translations to be wanting in feeling, and thus created these looser translations more to convey the meaning of Horace’s works if not the exact wording. A scarce translation, not easily found. N° de ref. de la librería 22368
