Cloth. Good/Very Good-. Second Printing. 8vo long. Owner's bookplate on ffep.; bottom edge soiled; one page has tape repair. Yellowish soiling on front pastedown and ffep. (possibly paper was removed? ); some writing on pastedown & ffep. as well. Half-title has Tennyson poem about the Roman poets copied by owner (the poem appears in the text, with a personal note in ink by the owner, on pp. 31) tho ugh this is really more charming than a flaw. A couple of pages have unobtrusive writing in ink. Otherwise, not at all bad: all pages otherwise clean and tight. DJ has edgewear, chipping at ends of sp ine, else vg. 48 photographs. "Shows on every page that curious blend of sensitivity and sophistication, precision and wide culture which makes Professor Highet so ideal an ambassador for classical li terature to the world at large . . . always conscious of the links-- a waterfall, a ruined wall in a cornfield, a pathetic graffito, the perennial labour over olives, cattle or vineyards-- binding the Roman world to our own. Sunt aliquid manes." -Times (London)
