L Annaei Senecae Cordvbensis Tragoediae

by Lucius Annaeus Seneca (Seneca the Younger)

Condition: Poor

Antwerp: Martinum Nutium , 1589 This is an extremely rare early copy of Seneca's tragedies, which include Medea and Oedipus. It is in poor condition - the front board is missing and the back board is detached. 25% of the spine is missing. The pages are browned and there is crinkling to the early and later pages due to the absence of the protective boards. There is some worm damage to final leaves, not affecting the text and someone has practised decorative writing - again on the final leaves and not affecting the text. It measures 11.5 x 8 cm and has 431 pages plus an index. We can find no reference to a 1589 copy, although Seneca's plays were very popular in that period.
