A new translation of Theocritus and Anacreon by Leconte de Lisle, a French poet of the Parnassian movement.
A good copy. The leather is a rubbed and darkened, and the boards' edges are rubbed. The inner binding is secure but with a very little weakening to the front hinge. The contents are in good order.
