Opera. Illustravit Christ. Guil. Mitscherlich. (Works)
Lipsiae (Leipzig), 1800. 2 volume, all published, 8 inches tall. A stunning Georgian full morocco with gilt raised bands and beautifully gilt tooled panels. The boards are decorated with gilt and blind fillets and gilt corner tools. Gilt dentelles and all edges. Some foxing but mostly clean. Originally five volumes were planned in this edition but only the first two were printed. These contain the Odes, Epodes and Carmen Seculare. Finely printed on heavy 'vellum' paper with vignettes engraved after designs by Fiorillo, a splendid copy of these works by this great Roman lyric poet.
