ASHENDENE PRESS. HORACE. HEWITT, Graily. ~ Carmina Alcaica.
One of 150 copies on Japanese vellum, (a further 25 copies were printed on vellum). Initial letters hand-drawn in gold, red and blue by Graily Hewitt. Printed in Subiaco type with a red colophon. 126 x 185 mms, original limp vellum, spine lettered in gilt. An exceptionally crisp and fresh copy - the last three letters on the spine have had the gilt rubbed away otherwise the binding is very good.
A beautiful edition being the first of a pair, the second being Horace's Carmina Sapphica.
