Description

The work of Glasgow printers Robert and Andrew Foulis is admired for its elegant design and typography. They issued Pindar’s odes for Greek athletes individually and in sets; this volume contains the Olympian odes. Uniform with Pindar, the Foulis brothers also issued a volume of lyric poems (Anacreon, Sappho, Alcaeus) and another of philosophy (Epictetus). These are unusual examples of true miniature books intended for adult male readers.
