“If I cannot move heaven, I will raise hell.”

― Virgil, The Aeneid

 

A rare, early 18th-century printing of the works of Virgil. This 1769 edition includes Virgil’s most famous works -‘Bucolics’ or ‘Eclogues’, the ‘Georgics’ and the ‘Aeneid’. Editions of Virgil are not uncommon to the 1700s, yet this edition is quite rare in that it features both a historical context of the works and a life of the author along with notes and commentary by Charles de La Rue. While the majority of this work is the poetry and commentary, there is an extensive index not common to similar editions. This index contains vocabulary from all of the works and the contexts of each word. A beautiful, vellum-bound set based on the 1722 Paris edition.
