Cicero: De Officiis.
London: Humphreys, 1902. Full morocco, 8 1/2 inches tall. Beautifully bound in terracotta crushed morocco with the distinctive gilt tooling to the panels, boards and dentelles of these superb Humphrey's publications. All edges gilt. One of the taller works finely printed on hand made paper. Speckling to the leaves. De Officiis (On Duties/Obligations), written in 44 B.C., the year of Cicero's death, has been hugely influential. Voltaire wrote "No one (else) will ever write anything so wise". A lovely copy, in English, of this great work.
