Complete four volume set in original mottled tree-calf binding. 12mo, This is the fifth edition, "revised and corrected, from the manuscripts of the author". The text is in Latin with the French verse translation on the facing page, to which Saint-Ange has added commentary (in French, only). Pagination: pp. 404, 419, 444, 440. Ovid (Publius Ovidius Nase 43 BC-AD 17) was a influential Roman poet, whose most famous works were the "Amores" and the "Metamorphoses". Volume I begins with a lengthy Preface by Saint-Ange. The leather covering the spines of vols. I, II, and IV has detached and is no longer present. The top quarter of the spine leather of vol. III is no longer present. The boards of vols. I and IV are a trifle bowed. The hinges of each volume are weakening, but still intact, and the stitching is tight on all volumes. There is occasional, and quite light, age-related foxing. Overall, a good set, priced according to condition (and inviting a re-backing). Photos of the state of the binding are available upon request.
