M. Manilii Astronomicon (Edition Altera in 5 Volume)

Cambridge University Press: Cambridge (Cantabrigiae), 1937. Octavo. Item #029136

Second edition. The definitive set correcting problems of the first edition and making additons. Considered ,which is a bit of ancient wisdom; "Liars need not have long memories if they address themselves only to fools, who have short ones, and an astrological poet writing his third book may safely forget his second, because an astrological reader will never remember it." The original editions which were issued (1903-1930) were highly valued but with Housman's additions and corrections the classical scholar has in this five volume set the most important access to his thought. All volumes bound in maroon cloth, spines lettered in gilt, volume five has staining to upper board. A very nice set all in unclipped printed dust jackets with some chipping and wear, spine darkened.
