Not illustrated. 1859 edition. Excerpt: ...zequa Deo; Faturque O durze mertalia subdita legi! C nimium juris pacta severa mei! Sic jacet addictus miser immortalibus umbris, Luctari debet e carcere nulla dies! Gutta salutaris nestro de vulnere stillet, Prosiliant venis pura fiuenta meis. Hes ubi gustavit vindex Astraea liqueres, Risit, et a crude vanuit ore rubor; Deposuit satiata sitim, vetumque nocendi, Prorsus ab immiti facta benigna Dea: Hac cemmutavit mors haud invita seipsam M orte, per hoc fatum vincere visa satis: Post hac dediscens Nemesis sua verbera plagas Commisit Veneris fiagra cremanda vire.

Quin istos etiam mores transmisit in erbem Princeps Tartarei carceris, iste malus; Qui quum ementiti simulator N uminis esset, Instituit simili Religione coli: Hinc olim immanes Tyrii Saturnia placant Numina, sacrilegi per feta pacta sacri. Herculis hinc ritus, altaria Tauridis, et quee Caedibus infecit Graia puella suis. Sic radiat verum magis, allucentibus umbris, Expiat inferno teste piacla cruor.
