A scarce miniature edition of Horace’s works, printed by Didot fils with type cut by Henri Didot.

‘One of the typographical wonders and an unsurpassed feat as far as the minuteness and beauty of the type is concerned’ (Spielmann 201). ‘Édition imprimée avec les caratères microscopiques de H. Didot; elle esst d’un format plus exigu encore que l’édition de Sédan et que celle de Pickering’ (Brunet III, 324).
