2 volumes, 8vo (221 x 141mm). Vol. I: [30], 264pp.; Vol. II: [22], 191pp., [14]. Engraved frontispieces of muses and numerous engraved vignettes and ornaments in text including depictions of mythological scenes, musical instruments and portraits of classicists. Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, boards with two single fillet borders gilt, smooth spines gilt-ruled and -lettered, edges gilt; (occasional light foxing, very slight offsetting; slight edgewear). First Edition, second issue, with corrected "potest" on the medal of Augustus Caesar on page 108 of volume two. John Pine’s Latin text was published in two volumes in 1733 and 1737 and was based on Talbot’s edition of 1699. Pine’s edition is remarkable for illustrating the text entirely by prints from engraved copper plates. He lavishly filled decorated the book with numerous engraved initials, head and tail pieces, text illustrations and full-page frontispieces for each volume; all in the Rococo style. A fine and elegant 18th-century engraved book made by Pine who was a pupil of Picart and England’s most accomplished native engraver during the 18th century. The classic poet Horace is known principally for his Odes, Satires and the renowned work the Ars Poetica; he represents the peak of the Roman lyric achievement. During the 17th and 18th centuries Horace’s poems formed an essential element in European culture and education. This is reflected not least in the fashion for Horatian imitations in the 17th and 18th century by writers such as John Dryden and Samuel Johnson. Brunet III, 320 "Remarquable par l’elegance des ornaments"; Cohen-de Ricci 498; Dibdin I, 419; Lowndes 1113; Ray, England 3, "marks a high point of Augustan taste"; Rothschild 1546; Schweiger I, 408.
