4to, 179pp. Very good, on lightly-aged paper. In lightly-worn original binding in blue cloth, all edges gilt, with 'THE LYRICS | OF HORACE | IN | ENGLISH RHYME.' stamped in gilt on front board, and 'THE | LYRICS | OF | HORACE' on the spine. A fair copy by Baring of his complete translation, paginated by him 5-183, without title or preliminaries (these were presumably intended to be written out on the two blank leaves which precede the translation). Baring's translation was published in London, Oxford and Cambridge, in 1870, by Rivingtons, under the title: 'The Lyrics of Horace | Done into English Rhyme | By Thomas Charles Baring, M.A. | (Late Fellow) of Brasenose College, Oxford'. Baring's death, at Rome, was reported in The Times, 3 April 1891.
