Hardcover with grey crushed Morocco with an ornately decorated vine design in gilt and colour to front and rear boards. Spine with four raised bands and gilt title and design. Inner sides of both boards have the same grey Morocco edges, gilt ruled and inlaid with white Morocco and ornate gilt and colour design, silk front and rear free end papers, all edges gilt, no inscriptions, light grey cloth slipcase and in Fine condition. This is the last volume of a set and was issued as an addition to "The Odes and Epodes of Horace" originally published in 1901, this volume being published in 1904, and is complete in itself. The original 1901 publication was apparently limited to 467 copies but we can find no evidence of any limitation number in this volume. Indeed, this volume seems to be far more ornately bound than anything else currently available, so it may have been part of a deluxe version? Deluxe edition? pp xxv, 222, indexes (as described in book).
