Pindar's four Victory Odes (Olympic, Pythian, Nemean and Isthmian, name after the games), which celebrate the victories at the Panhellenic games. Each verse in printed in Greek with the notes being in Latin. The editor, Henry Huntingford (1787–1867) was an English clergyman and writer.
A good copy. The leather is quite well-worn, with scuffing and bumping and a small segment of loss from the head of the spine. The inner binding is secure, the pages foxed to the prelims, title etc, but the main body of text clean of age-toned. This copy has the bookplate of John Hopton of Canon Frome in Herefordshire.
