(Catullus) Sisson, C.H. trans.: Catullus. London: MacGibbon & Kee, 1966. 8vo., pp. 93, [i]. Faux-vellum boards, gilt titles to spine and upper. Spine and board edges lightly toned, still very good. First edition of this translation. Ref: 51562
Catullus, Gaius Valerius: (Ellis, R., ed.:) Catulli Veronensis Liber iterum recognovit, apparatum criticum, prolegomena, appendices [...] Oxonii [Oxford]: e typographeo Clarendoniano, 1878. 2nd edition. 8vo., pp.lxxvii, (iii), 410 + 2 folding plates. Printed in red and black, errata slip tipped in. Preliminary blanks foxed, very faintly toned towards top edge, otherwise nice and bright inside. Brown calf, gilt spine, black morocco label, gilt borders and centrepiece, marbled edges and endpapers. Spine a little sunned, some slight smudges and scratches but very good indeed. Ownership inscription of N.D. Horton to preliminary blank. Gilt centrepiece reads 'Londinensis Schola Civitatis'. Ellis began working on Catullus in 1859. In 1866 he published 'a plain text, with conjectures based on study of manuscripts', followed by a larger edition in 1867. This, the second edition, appeared in 1878 and a revised text in 1904. 'In 1871 he published an unexpurgated translation in the original metres, very ingenious but barely intelligible without the Latin, and dedicated to Tennyson.' (ODNB) Ref: 48705
Catullus, Gaius Valerius; Tibullus, Albius; Propertius, Sextus: Opera. Birminghamiae [Birmingham]: Baskerville, 1772. 'Writing Royal' 4to., pp. [ii], 200, 221-372 (as usual). Occasional scatterings of very light foxing, but generally clean. Red calf, contemporary boards with later but sympathetic gilt spine; both boards heavily gilt in the herringbone style with borders and diamond-shaped centrepieces, suggesting a Scottish binding. Marbled endpapers, cloth hinges. In rebacking the binder has employed a French joint, seemingly to correct the original structure and give a better square at the foredge; the look is a little unusual, with a deep groove at the joint, but the work is neatly and skillfully done. Some slight splits to tail-cap, a few small scrapes to upper board, corners repaired but a very good, attractive copy. A2 is a cancel, H3 a cancelland; misnumeration and other errors as usual. Also available in 12mo., this 4to. version was priced on publication at a guinea, though copies were advertised for sale at 18s. on 9th July 1773; 780 copies remained in stock in 1775. Dibdin describes this edition, based on Coustelier's 1743 production, as 'very beautiful', though 'not esteemed for accuracy'.
