I, Sappho of Lesbos; the autobiography of a strange woman, translated from the medieval Latin

New York: Castle Books, 1960. Hardcover. 183p., very good first edition in boards and unclipped dj.

Fiction of plainly modern composition for which the editors (plural) supply a single page of background and the disclaimer that "the present publishers make no historical claims whatsoever" and allow its "doubtful authenticity." There is not so much as a single footnote, let alone mock critical apparatus that would have made it a little more fun, and a kind of Nabokovian "Pale Fire"
