NOT the revised 1992 edition. Our copy is a 1988 reprint of its original 1959 publication. Book itself shows little external wear, text is pristine. Jacket shows considerable wear along edges and especially at spine.

An Eighth Day View:

Two highly influential writers of satirical poetry in the early Roman Empire, Persius and Juvenal are universally admired and enjoyed for the mordant wit and biting irony with which they exposed contemporary life and abuses under the notorious emperors Nero and Domitian. This new and revised edition--the first since the original publication in 1959--conveniently brings together both poets in a single volume, and contains, along with a freshly amended version of the text, a concise apparatus criticus at the foot of each page and a full Preface, giving a comprehensive overview of the state of the text in light of recent scholarship.
