About This Item

Glasguae [= Glasgow]: Excudebant Robertus et Andreas Foulis [= Published by Robert and Andrew Foulis], 1750. Second edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Small (Pot) 8vo. [5], 2-248, [2] pp. Contemporary full calf, spine in six compartments with gilt lettering and decorations, maroon morocco label on the spine, boards' edges show gilt tooling. Gaskell 155. Editio Altera. The second Foulis press edition of Horace, the first Foulis Horace published in 1744. Contains Horace's satires, his Epodes, the shorter poems (known as the Carmina), his Ars Poetica, and his letters (Epistolarum). Oxford Classical Dictionary, "Horace", 724-76. Horace's body of work ranges from comedic to philosophical, rendering him one of Rome's most appreciable but weighty literary figures. He writes about his experiences at the Battles of Philippi and Actium, fighting in Brutus' army. He was lucky to retain his land after being on the losing side of the Roman Civil War. His writings helped him make sense of the violence he witnessed during the war. His letters, a later work, reflect on aging and the best way to lead one's life. The Ars Poetica is Horace's treatise on writing an elegant, well-crafted poem. An instructive text from a master of the form. A lovely edition of several of Horace's most significant works, well-made by the renowned Foulis Press. A Very Good copy with a tiny chip to the foot of the spine and a touch of rubbing to the boards' corners. Leaves remarkably clean.
