Paris: A. Mesnier, 1828. 229 pp. One of 100 copies, according to Holden. A stunning copy of Horace's works, in original wrappers. Printed by Didot the Younger, this is the second book using the remarkable 2 1/2 point type cut by Henri Didot the Elder, using the polyamatype method he invented. Spielmann considers the type to be "one of the typographical wonders and an unsurpassed feat as far as minuteness and beauty of type is concerned." Slight soiling to extremities, else fine in a pull-off case. (3 1/8 by 2; 78x50mm.). Item #27795
