Book Title: 

The Poems of Bacchylides

(Greek Text, with introduction and notes in English)

Published by the British Museum in 1897 and edited by F.G. Kenyon.

8vo. (22 x 14 cm), liv + 246 pages. Generally a clean copy, however the edges of many pages rough and uneven, from careless separation by a reader; on a few pages this has lead to the loss of a quite considerable strip of paper from the blank margin.

Bound in the original dark red cloth binding, the title etc. in gold on the spine. The binding sound with a little wear, the cloth a little frayed at the top and bottom of the spine.
