An attractive set of Brindley’s duodecimo Caesar, edited by the Irish classicist Usher Gahagan. The Caesar is one of several small-format classics published by Brindley in 1744, for which Gahagan was employed as editor. He subsequently produced versions of Quintus Curtius and Catullus, Propertius, and Tibullus, and translated three of Pope’s works into Latin, but fell into bad company and criminality and was hanged for coin-clipping in February 1749.
