From the Limited Editions Club in 1944. The book was translated by John Dryden, his Virgil still remains practically without rival as the standard English translation of the greatest Roman poem; the only one that has become an English classic. The illustrations were done by Carlotta Petrina made with a lithographic pencil, for reproduction by the photogravure process.
The Photogravure and Color Company in New York used impressions to reproduce the original drawings which were made on tinted paper. Dothard designed the book, and it was printed at the press of E. Hildreth in Brattleboro, Vermont, on Original Old Style type. The paper is made completely of rags, a white sheet, beautiful, dignified and fabricated by the Worthy Paper Company.The binding is of boards covered with tiny threads woven through the F.
