Description

16mo, pp. [ii], 201, [1] + frontispiece and engraved title-page. Contemporary half black calf, marbled boards, spine divided by gilt rules, red morocco label, other compartments with central flower tools in blind, marbled endpapers. Lightly soiled, engravings foxed. Binding rubbed at extremities.

Notes

A rare small-format edition of the classic English translations of Ovid's Amores, Ars Amatoria, Remedia Amores, and Medicamina Faciei Femineae, perhaps a piratical reprint (given the anonymity of the imprint) of one of the versions issued in the then-popular series of English poetry (such as Bell's or Dove's). We have been unable to trace any other copies of this printing in COPAC or Worldcat.
