Description:
Lipsiae (Leipzig): Thomas Fritsch, 1695. Hardcover. Very good. Silius (c.28-c.103) was consul in 68 and governor of the province of Asia in 69; he sought no further office but lived thereafter on his estates as a literary man and collector. He revered the work of Cicero, whose Tusculan villa he owned, and that of Virgil, whose tomb at Naples he likewise owned and near which he lived. His epic Punica, in 17 books, on the second War with Carthage (218-202 BC), draws heavily on Livy's account. Conceived as a contrast between two great nations (and their supporting gods), championed by the two great heroes Scipio and Hannibal, his poem is written in pure Latin and smooth verse filled throughout with echoes of Virgil above all (and other poets). Includes supplementary material by the German classicist Christoph Cellarius. [22], 586, [52]. Frontispiece engraving, with a title page decoration and six folding maps. 12mo. In a contemporary full vellum binding. Typical mild browning to the contents, with a… Read more

Description:
San Francisco: A.M. Robertson, 1916. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. This eclectic collection of verse is split into four parts. The first consists of 33 of the fantastic poems for which Sterling was so famous, followed by three poems on the Panama-Pacific Exposition and four personal poems, and concluding with 43 poems on the then-ongoing First World War. An Oakland contemporary of Joaquin Miller and Jack London, George Sterling (1869-1926) later became one of the first residents of Carmel and a leading supporter of the poetry of fellow bohemian Robinson Jeffers. Sterling is said to be the inspiration for two Jack London characters: Russ Brissenden in Martin Eden (1909) and Mark Hall in The Valley of the Moon (1913). Inscribed and dated in the year of publication by Sterling to Mary Elizabeth Fenn on the front flyleaf, with Fenn's bookplate on the front pastedown. Small octavo.
