Two volumes from Pope's translation of The Odyssey, each volume adorned with plates. Volume 5 contains books XVII to XX and has four plates by Robert Smirke.

Both books are in heavily-worn condition, with the front board of vol 5 very nearly detached and all other joints weak. The leather in rubbed and scuffed condition. However, the text is complete and the books remains readable with care.
