Philadelphia: Uriah Hunt & Son, 1845. Hardcover. Second edition. Nepos (110 - 25 B.C.) was a Roman biographer and this book details the lives of over 20 commanders (mostly Greek). According to the advertisement in the front, the language of Nepos is more simple than that of many other Roman scholars, so it is a good introductory text for students of Latin and grammar. Bound in full leather boards with black author label to spine and gilt bands. Minor fading to spine, wear to edges and corners, and leather on rear joint has a three inch split; although the board remains firmly attached. Foxing to interior and pencil marking to front endpapers. IN LATIN. 192 pages. ROM/082423. Very Good.
