1562 VIRGIL Georgics Mythology Pastoral Poems Latin Della Georgica
“Audaces fortuna iuvat- (Fortune favors the bold).”
Virgil is regularly considered one of the greatest Roman poets. His epic poems, ‘Eclogues,’ ‘Georgics,’ and ‘The Aeneid’ are some of the most important works of western literature and describe mythology, medicine, astronomy, war and military, rhetoric, agriculture, and more!
This undated, 16th-century printing of ‘Georgics’ comes from the complete works of Virgil published in Venice by Domenico Farri in 1562. Farri used Italian translations of various translators as part of his compilation of the works of Virgil, including Bernardo Daniello’s translation of ‘Georgics’.
This example is finely bound in a page from a Greek text and is illustrated with the same woodcut engraving at the start of each section as well as decorative initials.
