Theocritus: The Complete Poems


Theocritos; Jack Lindsay (trans)


Franfrolico Press 1925

Binding:  Hardback  |  Condition: Good  | 

Terrific limited edition volume of the thirty pastoral and mythologically themed poems originally attributed to Theocritos, though some are now thought to be the work of other authors. With b/w woodcuts by Lionel Ellis and an introduction by Edward Hutton. 4to. [xxiv] 163pp. Full green coloured vellum with gilt device to cover. Top edge gilt, fore-edge rough cut. Number 3 of 500 copies. No date but c. 1925. Green colour is faded to spine as is common (but this does give a more typical handsome vellum look on the shelf). Boards slightly bowed. Some tissue guards missing but most present. Occasional Infinitesimal spotting. Otherwise clean and prim. Good/very good.
