[viii], 308 pp. Nineteenth-century straight-grained English brown morocco, a.e.g. [viii], 308 pp. A collection of Bertaut and du Bartas translations by Sylvester with later issues of his own works. "At nine Sylvester was enrolled in the Southampton grammar school, headed by Hadrianus Saravia, which specialized in the French language. While he later lamented leaving school after only three years, the grounding in French he received there enabled him to translate with little error the voluminous and often highly embellished writings of his literary hero, the Gascon Huguenot poet Guillaume de Saluste, sieur Du Bartas" (ODNB).
