Ovid's Metamorphoses


RCIN 1050931

Ovid’s poem describes gods and men changing form, themes vividly shown in Francis Clein’s print for this 1632 edition. This influential English translation of the Latin original was made by George Sandys, who like Merian travelled to the New World, as treasurer of Virginia.
