Decii Junii Juvenalis et A. Persii Flacci Satyræ.
Londini: Typis J. Brindley 1744 - 12mo (in 6s), 120 x 72 mms., pp. [ii], 116, engraved title-page with Princes of Wales's feathers in coronet and "Ich Dien" vignette, engraved griffin figure opposite title-page on verso of front free end-paper, finely bound in later morocco, ornate gilt borders on covers, spine ornately gilt to a floral motif, all edges, gilt, gilt Dutch end-papers to a star pattern; some staining at edges of paste-down end-papers, but a fine and attractive copy. The text was edited by Usher Gahagan (d. 1749), the Irish classical scholar. He edited a number of Brindley's classical imprints, all beautifully printed and often in fine bindings. Alas for scholarship: he was hanged on 20 February 1749, for "diminishing the coin of the realm" by filing small pieces off gold and silver coins. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
