  • Book condition: GOOD ONLY
  • Quantity available: 1
London - J. Nicholson et al., 1715 Book. GOOD ONLY. Hardcover. A collection of satirical poems from Juvenal and Persius, two Roman poets. Roman Satura was a formal literary genre rather than being simply clever, humorous critique in no particular format. Juvenal wrote in this tradition, which originated with Lucilius and included the Sermones of Horace and the Satires of Persius. In a tone and manner ranging from irony to apparent rage, Juvenal criticizes the actions and beliefs of many of his contemporaries, providing insight more into value systems and questions of morality and less into the realities of Roman life. The author employs outright obscenity less frequently than Martial or Catullus, but the scenes painted in his text are no less vivid or lurid for that discretion. Fourth Delphin edition. In Latin. With notes on this edition by Ludovicus Prateus. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally worn, with loss to the spine and rubbing to the board. Frontboard is missing. Internally, firmly bound. Numerou ... Read more

ont> W. Newman and Co. : Calcutta, 1881 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. This recipe book full of 'good, wholesome food, daintily prepared' would have been gratefully received by the English inhabitants of nineteenth century India. In the author's preface to this second edition, they describe the initial printing as being cordially received, most likely by the colonial middle classes in India at the time who would have greatly appreciated this book and the easy to follow recipes that they can encourage their cooks to serve. 'Dainty Dishes' was also printed in Urdu, acknowledging that although this book would have been purchased by the homeowners of Anglo-Indian establishments, it would have been the local staff who would have used it. This edition also includes new chapters on curries and pelaus, which 'numerous friends' of the author had suggested, illustrating a true connection between the author and the readers, which were no doubt hankering as much for more books like 'Dainty ...
