About This Item

1661 OVID Metamorphoses Greek & Roman Mythology ART Illustrated Schrevel Latin

"I grabbed a pile of dust, and holding it up, foolishly asked for as many birthdays as the grains of dust, I forgot to ask that they be years of youth."

Ovid, Metamorphoses

A fine 16th-century edition of Ovid's best work 'Metamorphoses'. 'Metamorphoses' is one of the most famous works of Greek and Roman mythology and history of the 1st-century. It is known to have inspired the works of Dante, Boccaccio, Chaucer, and even Shakespeare as well as works of visual art and music. This epic poem recounts the history of the world from creation to the death of Julius Caesar.

This rare volume is from the 1661 complete works of Ovid, published in 1661 Lyon by Petri Leffen, translated by Cornelius Schrevel. It should be noted that this work contains impressive, full-page illustrations.
