Von Persius (34 - 62), etruskischer Abstammung, sind sechs Satiren in Hexametern überliefert er schloß sich dem Kreis um den stoischen Philosophen Lucius Annaeus Cornutus an, was sich in Ernsthaftigkeit wie Moralität seiner Satiren widerspiegelt.Einbandgelenke etwas berieben, oben minimal angeplatzt.

        L'Issue : Six gravures originales de Arikha

      Paris: Georges Visat, 1968. Wrappers, in publisher's chemise and slipcase. One of 154 copies on Rives (total edition). Illustrated with six colored etchings by Avigdor Arikha, each signed. Fine. "The colored etchings for L'Issue reveal the subtle and intuitive feeling with which Arikha approaches Beckett's work," Mitchell, Beyond Illustration: The Livre d'Artist in the Twentieth Century, 53; "The etchings and aquatints in this volume are in Arikha's earlier abstract style. Dark and moody in feeling, they are reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism and visually convey the somber outlook of Beckett's literary vision," Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000, 160.
