Virgil was a poet (70BC-19BC), He wrote 3 of the most famous poems in latin literature, Eglogues, The Georgics and Aeneid.
Less well known than his Horace, Pine's Virgil was left unfinished at his death in 1756 with only the Eclogues and Georgics illustrated and issued. His son, Robert Edge Pine, a notable painter in his own right, published this reissue with new preliminaries in 1774.
