Published in Lyon by Rolland in 1802.

Two duodecimo volumes in full calfskin binding. Smooth spine adorned with a gilded title label.
In good overall condition, rubbed crowns.

Volume 1: Les odes d'Horace
Volume 2: Satyres d'Horace

In the Odes, the metrical feat (with the use of four different types of stanzas, six varieties of discs and three types of verse used alone), the balance in a harmonious architecture that unfolds in numerical proportions as complex as they are impeccable, the circulation, interconnections, networks, correspondences, combinations and various symmetries, all of which together constitute an immense and highly sensitive resonance chamber, have all been praised. As for the incredible verbal virtuosity that draws the maximum possible energy from the choice and placement of each word, it impressed Friedrich Nietzsche to the highest degree by what he called its "nobility ".

Abbé Charles Batteux (1713-1780) held the chair of Greek and Latin philosophy at the Collège de France, was a member of the Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres and, from 1761, of the Académie française.
