Horace - Les poésies d'Horace disposées suivant l'ordre chronologique et traduites en français avec des remarques et des dissertations critiques par le R.P. Sanadon - in two large complete volumes - Paris chez pierre michel Huart l'ainé, 1728 - 690 and 843 pages - inside very clean, tear on the back cover, wear and tear, book dedicated to his highness the prince of Conti format : two large books 26 x 20 cm

Complete set of two volumes in format containing two delicate plates as well as two large banners with figurative decoration engraved by Crépy le Fils. ‘Less loyal than a translation of André Dacier, Sanadon has the advantage of a style almost always elegant. The notes that accompany it are curious’. (in Brunet). ‘This version, though less accurate than that of Dacier however preferred due to the elegance of the style’. (in Graesse). Text in Latin with French translation in opposite. The works of Horace consist of five books of Odes, where he showed the happy rival Pindar and Anacreon, two books of Satires, which has been praised by saying that Boileau has point have surpassed him. two books of letters, patterns of taste, finesse, urbanity, and seeded of the finest precepts of morality and philosophy. The philosophy of Horace is a gentle, forgiving, sociable, thinker who doesn't want to excess in anything and who is convinced that true wisdom stands at an equal distance from all extremes. One accused him of having unwisely revealed in his books his private life, and have point quite respected in some passages, the laws of decency.
