Item Description: Jacobus Saçon for Ciriacus Hochperg,, Lyon:, 1517. Folio: Collation: Pt. I: 216 lvs. Collation:*10, a-z8, aa-bb8, cc6 (cc6 blank). Pt. II: 342 lvs. Collation: ??8, A-Z8, AA-QQ8, RR-SS6, TT10 The Lyon VergilIllustrated with 208 Woodcuts from the Grüninger Vergil These blocks were cut for Grüninger?s 1502 edition of Vergil, the first illustrated Vergil. The book, edited by Sebastian Brant, was extraordinary in the number and variety of its illustrations. ?Grüninger?s artist applied to the work a skilled hand and a lively imagination? The blocks must have passed to Saçon at Lyon shortly after the printing of the Strasbourg 1515 edition of Thomas Murner?s German translation of the ?Aeneid,? described in Murray?s catalogue of German books, vol. 2, no. 426? The block of Vergil and Calliope is from the title page of the 1502 edition.?(Mortimer) "The subtle detail of Sébastien Brant's woodcuts would certainly escape the spectator who could not read the text and seem, rather, calculated to appeal to one whose familiarity with the poems would allow him to appreciate precise visual allusions. In several cases, Brant's work incorporates details drawn from the commentators' interpretations. As a humanistic scholar, he is said to have placed the stamp of his own thorough knowledge of Vergil upon the book by providing master sketches for the illustrators."(Eleanor Winsor Leach) Brunet V 1282; Baudrier vol 12, pp. 344-346; Renouard, Badius Ascensius, vol. 3 p. 370-372, no. 11. Cf. Eleanor Winsor Leach, "Brant's and Dryden's Editions of Vergil" in "The Early Illustrated Book", pp. 176 ff.) and Rabb, Theodore K. "Sebastien Brant and the First Illustrated Edition of Vergil." in "Princeton University Library Chronicle 21", 1960: 187-99. A fine, complete copy, bound in 18th century calfskin. There are discreet repairs to the fore-edge and foot of the title, affecting two letters on the verso. Leaf CC1 has a tear in the gutter without loss. VERY RARE. This is the first complete copy that I have handled in 15 years of specializing in early editions of Vergil. The only other copy that I have handled lacked the full-page image of Vergil and his muse. FIRST LYON BADIUS EDITION. The third edition with these woodcuts and the last edition to include them all. Two parts in one volume with titles printed in red and black within fine architectural woodcut borders. Illustrated with 207 large woodcut illustrations (64 in the first part and 143 in the second part.) A full-page woodcut of Vergil with the muse Calliope appears on the recto of ?1.

Item Description: Printed for Jacob Tonson, London:, 1697. FIRST EDITION. Folio: [ ]2, A2, *4, **4, ***2, ****2, *****2, ?2, ??2 x1, B-G4, [ ]4, [ ]2, H-T4, U2; (a)-(f)4, Aa-Zz4, Aaa-Zzz4, Aaaa-Ffff4, Gggg2, Hhhh-Iiii4, Kkkk2. A Fine Large-Paper Copy of the First Edition ?Dryden?s ?translation of Vergil?? says Pope, (whose own translation of Homer was inspired by Dryden?s work) ?is the most noble and spirited translation I know in any language.? (Thomas) ?The book was published by subscription, a system of joint-stock patronage now coming into vogue. [.] Dryden?s correspondence with [his publisher] Tonson showed a good many bickerings during the publication. One cause of quarrel was Tonson?s desire that the book should be dedicated to William III. Dryden honourably refused; but Tonson had the engravings adapted for the purpose by giving to Aeneas the hooked nose of William (Dryden, Letter to his son, 3 Sept. 1697).? (DNB)?Shakespeare probably knew at least the earlier books of the ?Aeneid? in Latin, while Milton?s ?Paradise Lost? attempts to provide an English equivalent not only for Vergil?s epic themes but even for his syntax, diction, and as far as possible, meter. But in Britain he was also particularly well-served by translations. In the seventeenth-century the epic was translated by Dryden.? (Gian Biagio Conte?s ?Latin Literature, A History?) Wing V-616; Macdonald 33A; Wither to Prior #325; Malone I.1.313; See John Barnard ?The Large- and Small-Paper Copies of Dryden?s The Works of Virgil (1697)? in ?Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America? {Columbia, SC} 92, no. 3 (1998 Sept): p. 259-71. An exceptional, and exceptionally large, ?large paper? copy. This copy is complete with the engraved frontispiece, the extra plate depicting Vergil reading the Aeneid to Augustus, and all 101 of the magnificent engraved plates by W. Hollar called for in this edition: ten in the Bucolics, twenty in the Georgics, and seventy-one in the Aeneid. Bound in 17th-century paneled calf, very nicely rebacked in the 18th-century. The spine is separated into eight compartments, ruled and tooled in gold, by raised bands. There are two spine labels, one in red and one in green morocco, tooled in gold. The boards are framed by a single gold fillet.Internally, this copy is in superb condition with very little of the browning associated with this edition. The great majority of leaves are crisp, lily-white and wide margined. In fact, this is the largest, and cleanest copy that we have had the pleasure to handle. There are a few incidental marginal tears, only one of which ?now mended- enters an engraving (opposite p. 261.) The final leaf is ink-stained. Bookseller Inventory # 3017D

Item Description: Printed by Thomas Creede,, London:, 1607. Quarto: a4, A-V8, X4 (lacking blank leaf X4) The Elizabethan VergilAn Exquisite Copy of a Great Rarity Thomas Phaer, "the first Englishman to attempt a translation of the whole work" (DNB) was also the first to translate the Aeneid into English verse (after Caxton?s prose and Douglas? Scots translations.) Phaer died without completing the work. Thomas Twyne added a translation of the remaining three books of the epic (1573); the 1584 edition was the first to contain the "thirteenth book" or continuation of Maphaeus Vegius. "Root has shown that [Shakespeare] consulted the Aeneid both in the original and in Phaer?s translation" (Whitaker, Shakespeare?s Use of Learning, 26). "Vergil?s Nachleben is Western Literature. Anecdotal evidence suggests that already during his lifetime he was regarded not only by professional colleagues but also by many lay readers as Rome?s greatest living poet. For the Romans, with a speed and completeness that has few parallels in world literature, Vergil had already become a classic. His works are quoted so often in antiquity that even if they had been lost, they could still be reconstructed in large measure. During his own lifetime, fellow poets such as Horace and Propertius admired him, from a distance, and parodies of his works flourished, but apparently no poet earlier than Ovid dared to try to rival him."Vergil continued to be read in Latin for centuries. Shakespeare probably knew at least the earlier books of the Aeneid in Latin, while Milton?s Paradise Lost attempts to provide an English equivalent not only for Vergil?s epic themes but even for his syntax, diction, and as far as possible, meter.? (Conte, Latin Literature, A History) STC 24805; Harris, First Printed Translations into English (1573) p.159; cf. Pforzheimer Cataogue 1028; cf. Langland to Wither, 238 Bound in an exquisite binding of eighteenth-century mottled calf, highly polished and beautifully tooled in gold along the edges of the boards. The spine is separated into six compartments by the raised sewing supports, each of which, aside from that bearing the citron morocco label, is decorated with attractive floral tools. The large gilt armorial crest consisting of a Pegasus head and wings "LTHD" on upper cover, earl's coronet and "EDDE" on lower cover. The edges of the text block are stained a solid red. The binding is in exceptional condition, with only the slightest bit of wear. The text itself is in excellent condition. The text of the poem is set in Black Letter and is adorned with attractive woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces throughout. Creede?s woodcut printer?s device appears on the title page. Excellent. Provenance: Tollemache, Earls of Dysart, Helmingham (supralibros, engraved armorial bookplate on title verso, note on front pastedown in hand of Lionel Tollemache, fourth Earl). SEVENTH EDITION overall (first ed. 1554), the fourth complete printing (first 1584), and the last of the Elizabethan editions. "Though not the first, Phaer?s was the most popular of all the Tudor translations, having been published in whole or in part at least eight times. Phaer published the first seven books in 1558, and the first nine in 1562" (Pforzheimer, 1028). Bookseller Inventory # 3122D

The series was the work of thirty-nine scholars and was edited by Pierre-Daniel Huet, who was working with Jacques Bousset, tutor to the Dauphin. Schweiger 1170-1171. A very fine copy, bound in contemporary mottled calfskin, the spine elaborately and richly tooled in gold. The spine is separated into compartments by raised sewing supports. The second compartment bears a large red morocco label beautifully tooled in Roman capitals: ?RUAEI VIRGILIUS? The boards are framed by two decorative rules. The binding is in excellent condition with only light wear, the corners lightly bumped. Internally, the text is in very good condition, with occasional light foxing and toning. There is a small dampstain in the gutter in the first two signatures of the Aeneid. The engraved frontispiece, with a central scene showing Arion and the dolphin (an allusion to the Dauphin) and a medallion portrait of Vergil, is just a trifle foxed. Engraved vignettes introduce the Bucolics, Georgics & Aeneid. SECOND EDITION of the Delphin Vergil; this issue was printed ?Ex Typographia David Roger 1689.?. Bookseller Inventory # 2463D

A good set, in handsome contemporary bindings (labeled "Martyn's Virgil. Vol. I [and] Vol II"). Second and third editions of Martin's heavily annotated translations, printed parallel with the Latin texts. Martyn (1699 - 1768) was a botanist of considerable accomplishment, with a substantial number of original and translated publications to his credit. "About 1737 Martyn received from Linnæus a copy of his ‘Flora Lapponica,’ published in that year, and thus began a correspondence between them. Reference is made to this work by Martyn in the first volume of the last great literary undertaking of his life, an edition, with translation and natural history notes, of the works of Virgil. Of this he published the ‘Georgicks’ in 1741, the astronomical matters being revised by his friend Edmund Halley, and the ‘Bucolicks’ in 1749; but only left some dissertations and notes on the ‘Æneid,’ which were issued posthumously" - DNB. The earlier and quarto editions often appear with a larger complement of plates, and with the plates colored. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 53039

Item Description: Ex Officina Classica: Impensis W. Poyntell et Soc. [H. Maxwell, Printer], Philadelphia, 1804. xx, 608 pp. 8vo. First American edition. First American edition. xx, 608 pp. 8vo. A knowledge of the Classics was considered part of the foundation of a gentleman. Following the English traditional system of education, classics were studied to impart history, science, conduct, concept of government, law, and literary style, among other things. Many of the leaders of society were products of these schools and a "gentleman's" library of course contained the standard classics. Virgil was studied for proper conduct. A consortium of Philadelphia publishers, wishing to share the costs of publishing standard works with unusual expense or special requirements, formed the Classic Press. This press, under the direction of William Poyntell provided texts for students and teachers at affordable prices. The intention of the press was to publish all the Greek and Latin classics from the best editions, in their original languages and with excellent notes. Of this edition of Virgil the editors stated that they did not include the "Index Vocabulorum" for several reasons including the fact that it is often incorrect and that by not including it they were able to reduce the cost of the work to the purchaser. The first American translation and first printing of the original of Virgil's "Works" was published in 1796 by Leonard Worcester in Worcester with Caleb Alexander's translation. Shaw and Shoemaker 7657 citing three copies. For the Rome 1469 "Opera:" PMM 6 Modern calf-backed marbled boards, red morocco label. Some browning and spotting of text. Bookseller Inventory # 65011
