With a half-title.

With frontispiece and engraved title page vignette.

This edition of Horace's Carmina is the rarest of the classical quartos, and the only one issued by Baskerville with plates. It is found in three forms, 1. without frontispiece or plates, 2. with frontispiece only, and 3. very rarely, as in this copy, with the frontispiece by Henriquez and the four plates after Gravelot.

Engravers Godfroy, Voyer, J. Leveau and C. le Vasseur.

The titlepage exists in two settings, one with the "D" in "MDCCLXX" damaged. [this one is perfect]

Sig. 2A1 (pp. 185-6) is a cancel, existing in four different settings, none of them differing from the cancellandum or from each other except in the arrangement of the units in the two rules of 'lozenge and star' ornaments.

Gaskell, 39
