The Odes of Horace
Limited to 980 hand-numbered copies
This is the first facsimile of this exquisite manuscript and provides a fascinating record of William Morris's creative method.
‘We seem to have been granted access to a treasure: vulnerable, threatened by the very transience that Horace's odes resist and lament, and therefore all the more highly to be prized’
