Odysseia.

Oxford: University Press, 1909. Quarto. (230)pp. One of 225 copies, printed in red & black in the Greek types designed by Robert Proctor. According to the colophon, Proctor’s type is based on a font cut in 1514 at the behest of Cardinal Ximenes for use in the New Testament of the Complutensian polyglot Bible. Proctor also used this font in the printing of an edition of the Oresteia, completed at the Chiswick Press in 1904. Original linen-backed blue boards show some rubbing to corners, spine lightly toned, and some creasing to paper spine label. A near fine copy of a significant typographical edition. Item #28578
