2 (Vergilius, Maro, Publius) (AENEID) FREE AND INDEPENDENT TRANSLATION OF THE FIRST AND FOURTH BOOKS.
Winsted, CT (1869?) 
22pp. Practically Englished, for instance, "O Muse! relate me the facts if you happen to know 'em/Concerning the hero of this astonishing poem." Theodore Vaill is credited w/the translation (called the University Edition), of which NUC reports one location for this ed., several for the 1870 ed., one for the 1875 ed., & two for the 1908 ptg. It is possible that the 1875 ed. is identical w/this "earnest attempt to give our grand old Poet a lift." Thos. Worth has provided six puckish illus. (Venus & Juno talk before a door which has a sign about rooms to let). Neat piece of work w/out wrps. Removed. Connecticut. Classics. Illustration. (3280355199)

8 Wiggin, Kate D. Collection of titles by and about Kate Douglas Wiggin.
NY. c.1900 
Ten vols. by & one about. You remember Ms. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch? Here are ten others, some quite scarce. Although some are inexpensive reprints, I suggest you haven't seen this much Wiggin for sale in one place for a long time. Also incl. is her autobiography, My Garden of Memory. Together an impressive lot. Ask for list of titles. 11 vol. (4398591696)
