Quintus Horatius Flaccus [Unbound sheets]
A complete set of unbound sheets of the last printing of the Pickering Horace.

This set of sheets are a remarkable survival, giving insight into the printing and binding process. The sheets are quarter-sheet impressions, each sheet holding 8 front-and-back leaves (16 pages) of the text. The sheets have been folded into gathers, and left thus. The separately printed frontispiece engraving is included as an individual sheet. The whole is housed in a book-form leather case. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc5506/
