Virgil's Aeneid, The Twelve Books of the Aeneid, translated by E. Fairfax Taylor. Rare 1903 leather edition of Classic Greek tales.



The Twelve Books of Virgil's Aeneid
Translated by E. Fairfax Taylor
Dent, Temple Classics, 1903
Green Limp (soft) leather binding with gilt embossed to front and spine. Pocket sized. Tissue paper guarded Frontispiece, integral red cloth/ ribbon bookmark.
The Dent Temple Classics are gorgeous antique books, bound in luxurious olive green leather with gilt decoration, they feel wonderful and are a pleasure to read.
A rare book, this one is a treasure.
The cover displays some signs of its vintage, it is 115 years old. There is rubbing and scuffing to the boards and spine, slight and to be expected due to the age of the book. Slight loss to top of spine. Internally clean.
This is a wonderful translation of Virgil's classic and a fine edition, in which the hero Aeneas, known from The Illiad, leads a fleet from Troy to Italy under the wrathful gaze of Juno.
Of Arms and the Man I sing....
