(purple cloth with small decoration on front cover; no dust jacket) [decent-looking copy, the spine cloth a bit faded with one tiny stain, a teensy amount of bumping/fraying at several corners, previous owner's address label on front pastedown]. Works of the Roman writer (and pal of Nero), including the Satyricon, authorship of which is generally but not definitively ascribed to him. Jack Lindsay, the son of controversial illustrator Norman Lindsay, had a long and distinguished track record as a translator of Greek and Roman classics, and was also a prolific critic, novelist, poet and playwright. Per his introduction, he was primarily basing his work on Buechler's translation, as published in Berlin in 1862.
