Virgil - Virgil's Georgics - ( Item 117503 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 1969. First Thus. Very Good+ Hardback. Spine very slightly foxed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Very Good slipcase. Some marks to panels of slipcase. Translated into English Verse by K. R. Mackenzie. Soft-ground etchings by Nigel Lambourne. The Georgics is a poem in four books, likely published in 29 BC. It is the second major work by the Latin poet Virgil, following his Eclogues and preceding the Aeneid. It is a poem that draws on many prior sources and influenced many later authors from antiquity to the present. As its name suggests (Georgica, from the Greek word ?e???e??, georgein, "to farm") the subject of the poem is agriculture; but far from being an example of peaceful rural poetry, it is a work characterized by tensions in both theme and purpose.
