Title

D. Junii Juvenalis et A. Persii Flacci Satyrae

Subject

Satirical works of Juvenal and Persius, edited by John Hawkey (1703-1759).

Description

18th century Irish binding of gilt tooled red goatskin, with black goatskin inlays. Marbled endpapers. Bookblock edges in gilt.

The broad roll-tooled border appears to be one used by the Dublin craftsman known as the 'College Binder', who was active between 1733 and 1758 (see Maurice Craig, Irish Bookbindings 1600-1800, plate 23). As the name suggests, bindings by the College Binder are most often found on books published at the Dublin University Press, often copies of Classical works edited by John Hawkey.

Creator

Juvenal (active late 1st and early 2nd century AD)
