The Iliad of Homer [and] The Odyssey of Homer : translated by Alexander Pope.


[With] Flaxman's designs. Two titles bound in one volume. Crown 8vo. xxiv, 454 & xxx, 346pp; each with frontis and other b&w illustrations. A colonial binding (J. Walch & Sons, Hobart Town) of half leather and cloth sides, raised bands on spine, decorated in gilt and with red title label; the extremities a little rubbed. All edges sprinkled red, slight damp spot on head edges not affecting pages. Trifling loss at lower fore-corners of the first few leaves, a few spots of foxing on first and last few leaves, otherwise a very good clean copy. Contemporary (1896) owner's inscription on preliminary blank and front paste-down, with the latter mostly covered with the same owner's bookplate; a later owner's name on the facing free endpaper.
