Imprinted at Oxford, \ By lobn Lichfield,\An.Dom. MDCXXXII.

Folio, old calf; 1 6 fine PLATES, PROOF Impressions.
This volume possesses a particular interest to an American collector. It is the first

translation of a classic into the English language made on this continent,

by George Sandys, who was Secretary to the Colony of Virginia at that

time. See the Dedication.
Sandys is pronounced by Dryden to be the best versifier of the preceding age; and Pope

affirmed that English Poetry owed much of its beauty to his translations.
