6 Michie, James The Epigrams of Martial
London Hart- Davis, MacGibbon 1972 0246105763 / 9780246105769 Hardcover Very Good Very Good Jacket 
Granada Publishing Limited, First published in Great Britain 1973 by Hart- Davis, Macgibbon Ltd, 3 Upper James Street London W1R 4BP. In mylar cover. Previous owners name on front free endpaper. Price in pound sterling crossed out in pencil and the date 1973 printed next to it on inside of dust jacket. No other marks. Martial, the father of the epigram and perhaps its greatest exponent, was one of the brilliant Spaniards who made their literary mark in first-century Rome. Poor but averse to regular work, he survived by hi swits - by dancing attendance on wealthy patrons, and writing poetry. His epigrams embraced a faxcinating range of moods - scabrous, affectionate, flattering, cruel, ingenious, elegiac, playful. And his targets were spongers, fortune- hunters, schoolmasters, jockeys, slaves, prostitutes, doctors, prudes, perverts, philosophers, poets, and above all the rech, who are always with us. What he caustically evokes is not 'the grandeur that was Rome', but the squalor and vivacity of a great European city." All orders processed within 24 hoursHard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
