Statius Volumes I & II, Loeb Classical Library

£27.99

Product description

Two small hardback volumes with red boards, numbers 206 and 207 in the Loeb Classical Library series. Published by Heinemann and Harvard University Press. 1967 & 1969 reprints (first published 1928). Translated by J H Mozley.

The Latin text runs through the left-hand pages, with the English translation facing it on the opposite page.

Volume 1 contains the Silvae and books I-IV of the Thebaid. Volume 2 contains books V-XII of the Thebaid, and the Achilleid.

Publius Papinius Statius (c. 45-96 CE) was a Roman poet born in Naples. His main surviving works are the Silvae, a collection of occasional poetry; the Thebaid, an epic in 12 books; and the incomplete Achilleid, consisting of one book and the beginning of a second, which was probably unfinished at his death.

The translator, John Henry Mozley, was a lecturer in classics at the University of London.

These are two volumes, both with dust jackets, in very good condition. The jacket flaps are clipped as shown in our photographs and have a few small tears, and one jacket spine has darkened. Both volumes bear the same previous owner's name and 1979 date on the front endpaper. There is foxing to page tops and a few pencil marks in the margins, but the books remain in very good condition.
