“We are but dust and shadow.”

― Horace

 

Horace was the most important Roman poet during the 1st-century BC. He composed satires, odes, epistles, and other poetic verses; works that have been referenced and studied for centuries. Horace’s works have yielded some famous quotes that have influenced cultures and societies including “Carpe Diem!” (seize the day) and “Pactum serva” (keep the faith).

 

This late 16th-century Bonelli edition of the works of Horace was edited with contributions from numerous authors including Poliziano, Aldo Manutius, Francesco Robortello, Nicolai Perotti, Marco Sabellico, and many others. And while the works of Horace from this era are considered rare, this edition which includes the 3rd-century commentary of Helenius Acron, is of the utmost desirability.
