Virgil's fourth eclogue, the pollio, chiefly considered as a birthday astrological poem in honour of Augustus
Printed at the "Chronicle" Office, Bath 1868 - [6], 10pp. With an engraved frontispiece depicting the zodiac. Original publisher's printed tan paper wrappers, later rebacked in tan cloth. Extremities dust-soiled and a trifle chipped, bottom corner of upper cover clipped. Paper repairs to bottom corners of front blank fly-leaf, frontispiece, title-page, and final three leaves of text, light marginal dust-soiling throughout. A scholarly reappraisal of the Pollio, the fourth of Virgil's pastoral poems collectively termed the Bucolics, which represents the work as an astrological poem composed in celebration of the nativity of Emperor Augustus, the poet's benefactor. This apparently unrecorded printing reprints the entirety of the lecture, first delivered at a meeting of the Bath Literary and Philosophical Association. Size: Quarto [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
