11 Anthon, Carolus C. Crispi Sallustii De Catilinae Conjuratione Belloque Jugurthino Historiae
Boston Hilliard, Gray & Co. 1833 Fourth Edition Full Leather Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
386pp. Full calf. Lacking the leather spine label. Latin with English notes. An erudite work from that scholar of the classics, Charles Anthon. The first edition of this translation was printed in 1829, one year before Martin Harris visited Anthon in NYC with the so-called Anthon manuscript containing characters ("caractors") from the golden plates supposedly discovered by Joseph Smith Jr. which provided the source material for the Book of Mormon. Harris claimed that Anthon verified the characters as authentic but when he gave the story of the giving of the golden plates, he claims Anthon tore up his own written authentication. Anthon's story is somewhat different and he came out later in print against the claim of his endorsement. Extremities rubbed, corners rubbed through. The joint is beginning to separate at the ends on the back joint. Ownership inscription on the front free endpaper. Occasional foxing. Some dampstain in the text. The binding is quite dry and has been recently treated, but there is no red rot. 
Price: 36.00 USD
