Description

This third volume of the 1502–1503 Aldine imprint of Ovid (43 BCE–17/18 CE) includes poetry written during his exile, composed in a futile attempt to curry favor with the Emperor Augustus and secure his return to Rome. This copy is heavily annotated throughout in a contemporary Greek and Latin hand.
