Longus; trans. Jacques Amyot; illust. Philippe II, Duc d’Orléans. Les amours pastorales de Daphnis et Chloé. [Paris: Quilleau,] 1718. First edition “du Régent.” Bound in contemporary red morocco. Longus (AD IIc), about whom nothing is known, wrote the most widely celebrated of the five surviving Greek novels: Daphnis and Chloe. The impetus for this publication was the inclusion of Philippe II’s — then Regent for the young Louis XV — illustrations.
