Offered here is a beautifully bound 16th century copy of Persius Flaccus' satires. Flaccus was a Roman poet and satirist, and most of his works critique the abuses of his contemporaries. His works seemed to peak in popularity during the Middle Ages. This is a scarce printing of his satires.
The binding is new premium quality vellum over boards, done in period style by the Addison's bindery. With nice yap edges and blue title label in gilt, the binding is true to the bindings of the 16th century. The text condition is Good, or average, with the following faults: title chipped and with signs of damp at margins, old writing on title, faded marginal staining throughout, heavier old staining near the end of the text block with damp stains to last few pages (particularly rear blank end-pages). Otherwise, a clean and tight copy.
