HOMER. [Iliad and Odyssey, in Greek]. London: Pickering, 1831.

Two volumes, 16mo (96 x 57 mm). Original publisher's red cloth with printed lettering-pieces to spines; pp. [ii], 351; [iv], 272, two engraved portaits as frontispieces, titles with Pickering's Aldus device; light chipping to lettering-pieces, head of spine of one volume with light wear, otherwise a very clean set.
First edition in this miniature format.
According to Spielman (198) 'one of the best printed Greek miniature books ever produced'. The tiny typsetting of this set must have been made doubly difficult due to the type used.
